On Sunday night, this year’s king and queen of the acting races were crowned at the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmys in a ceremony held at the Westin Bonaventure hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

The big awards were saved till the end of the night, where The Bachelor and The Bachelorette host and executive producer, Chris Harrison presented the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series award to Days of our Lives Mary Beth Evans (Kayla).  Nextg, Daytime Emmy winner, Laura Wright (Carly, GH) got a thrill when she was able to open the envelope in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category.  That is because her longtime castmate Tyler Christopher was revealed to be the winner for his portrayal of Nikolas Cassadine.

Mary Beth is just gracious, adorable, classy and so much fun. I love that she is Kayla’s biggest fan and only ever has positive thoughts to share about the shows and people she works with. It’s obvious why she’s daytime’s sweetness <3 Thanks for posting this interview 🙂

I can only applaud those comments. So glad that she is always upbeat and never bashes or disparages daytime–as she said, she’s grateful; since 5 she always wanted to act–and is obviously in love with the profession whenever, where ever she can do it.

She comes off as very “real,” someone everyone wants to be around–could see her as a good neighbor, sharing her flowers and veggies from her garden–as well as her recipes.

She seems to have life in perspective. Her life is full and well rounded. Bully for her! Many more years of fulfillment for her. Cheers, Mary Beth!

isn’t it , “so” nice … that the panel of judges at last went for all the pre requisite…. what drama means… what the original intent of Serial begets

Mary Beth Evans and Tyler Christopher just wholly drove their characters all get out

I certainly do not think… the majority of posts… assessing from this site alone… thought that either or would walk with gold

Lead Actress… Finola or Kassie
Lead Actor… Anthony or Justin

wow… which in hindsight… what a banner year for …. “competition” and fully loaded

I love these two !

Days didn’t go unnoticed… she still lights up my telee
My man with the “dark” side… featured all the way live

I said I thought she deserved to win–as well as Finola–even called for a tie between them. 🙂

Further commenting on the Emmys and daytime drama in general:

After Mary Beth won–and I heard her talking in another interview about Kayla and Patch on the run and getting to fall in love all over again, I went on youtube and watched those scenes–the “Lady in Red” dream sequence when Kayla can’t hear and she and Patch are dancing and she thinks back to dancing in that sparkling red dress with him, the “hot springs” scene, and I thought what a shame that the writers choose (or do not know how) not to write any love scenes today–the scenes in daytime are usually just “sex” scenes devoid of real romance. I thought also what a shame for the young people that might watch daytime drama–what a “cheat.” They become so jaded, so “worldly” so very early and are robbed of those romantic love stories.

I also went back and watched some classic scenes from the Laura and Luke romance on GH–the scenes where Laura painted Luke’s apartment magenta, the classic “stuck door” scenes. What good memories they brought back–also a wrenching sadness.

Congrats to both. They have been around so long and they certainly worked for it. I am sorry it wasn’t aired because these two I would have been thrilled to see them accept the Emmy. Tyler and Mary Beth both seem to be real people, and what a treat to not have to see the same old Same old winners. I also remember them both on GH.

I was delighted when Mary Beth won. She has long been a favorite of mine, not simply because of Kayla, but because of how she is. She’s a wonderful example of grace. Her character was basically ignored by Days for four years. Kayla was never given a story of her own in all that time. Despite watching everyone else get stories of their own, whether they were on contract or recurring, she didn’t complain. She just resolved to do her best with what she was given, little though it was.

This year, she was given an opportunity. She did some marvelous work, and finally, after a thirty year wait, she got recognition for it.

I’m very glad.

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

Through all of the emotional drama, Banus sustained a level of performance that is no easy feat. That is why Michael Fairman TV names Camila’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

Let us know if you agree with our pick, and what you thought of Camila’s performances, and what you think Gabi might do next, via the comment section below.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
