43rd Annual Daytime Emmys: GH Wins Drama Series, Tyler Christopher and Mary Beth Evans Take Top Acting Honors!

Courtesy/NATAS

Sunday night at the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, it was ABC’s General Hospital that was the night’s big winner.

Not only was GH honored for the first time in five years for Outstanding Drama Series, but also the series took home 5 total Emmys last night making 9 wins for the long running series including Friday night’s Creative Arts victories.  Both ceremonies were held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.  General Hospital’s Tyler Christopher took home the gold for the first time in his career as Nikolas Cassadine, in scenes surrounding the dark prince trying to hold it together after his son Spencer (Nicolas Bechtel)  is badly burned in a fire at Wyndemere.  Christopher’s victory took away longtime GH icon Tony Geary’s (Luke) chance at winning a record-tying 9 Emmys.

Days of our Lives Mary Beth Evans won for Outstanding Lead Actress in a drama Series for her performance as Dr. Kayla Brady – the first for a role she has played for 30 years.  However, Evans set a record of her own this past weekend winning 3 total Daytime Emmys: a victory in Outstanding Actress in a Daytme Digital Drama Series for The Bay, and as producer for the series which took home Outstanding Daytime Digital Drama Series.   Both of those awards were given out on Friday night.   Evans won on the strength of her work with longtime DAYS scene partners: Peter Reckell (Bo) and Stephen Nichols (Patch).

In the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Jessica Collins won for her performance as Avery Bailey Clark on CBS’ The Young and the Restless.   It was a bittersweet victory for the actress who left the series almost a year ago.  Meanwhile, Sean Blakemore took home his first Emmy for his role as Shawn Butler on General Hospital in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category.  Blakemore was not present for the awards, so his one-time GH scene partner Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) accepted on his behalf.

True O’Brien took home a gold statuette in the Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Paige Larson on Days of our Lives, and Bryan Craig celebrated Emmy night with some gold with a victory in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series for his work as Morgan Corinthos on General Hospital.

Obba Babatunde’ won for his performance as Julius Avant in the Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series on The Bold and the Beautiful, and B&B took home the Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series honors for the transgender storyline. General Hospital took home the Outstanding Directing Team in a Drama Series for its 52nd Anniversary episode led by director Bill Ludel.

And in other notable daytime category emmy wins last night:  Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan were named Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Hosts in an ironic twist given all the behind the scenes drama at Live with Kelly and Michael that ensued between the two over the last few weeks.

CBS” The Talk was named Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment, and The Price is Right won Outstanding Game Show. Outstanding Game Show Host went to Craig Ferguson, Celebrity Name Game, and  Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host was given to Dr. Oz for The Dr. Oz Show, and Outstanding Talk Show/Informative went to ABC’s The Chew.  Outstanding Morning Program went to CBS Sunday Morning, while  Outstanding Entertainment News Program was taken by Extra.

Gonna give a big “CONGRATULATIONS!” to GH’s Costume Design team. They deserve it. With the array of characters they have to dress, everyone always looks appropriate for their personality & economic situation. And, thank goodness the writers finally gave us back Crimson because now Nina & Maxie are always wearing amazing outfits, even when they’re suffering personally. That’s got to a dream come true for that dept. too.

Agree wholeheartedly with everything you’ve said with the exception of Bryan Craig. I find his acting to be over the top and lacking in nuance — the opposite of the qualities which won Tyler and Sean their awards.

WTG !!! GH was honored for the first time in five years for Outstanding Drama Series.. ————— CONGRATS Ron Carlivati !!! It was RC’s writing that brought the gold home.. GH– I was a bit shocked that Tony did not get his 9th emmy.. Tyler Christopher is very good but he is not in Tony’s league. Maybe the judges were tired of giving it to Tony/Luke LOL .. Y&R– Jessica Collins,, good call.. she deserves the emmy ! GH– Bryan Craig / Morgan.. well deserved emmy! he has really brought his scenes home. And– General Hospital took home the Outstanding… Read more »

No shock, here, su0000, re Tony Geary–he burned too many bridges inside and outside (with fellow actors and viewers alike). So sad still to think what he might have achieved–“he had such great promise”–lol!

In all honesty, I thought TG’s depiction of Luke’s father showed ego and hamhandedness. I get that he was probably dissed for his outrageous behavior in leaving the show, but I wasn’t all that blown away by his acting in the scenes he submitted. JMO.

I was grateful the academy recognized that Tony’s acting in the “Fluke” storyline (and Maura West’s acting as Denise, for that matter) really crossed the line into camp — the kind of thing soaps get mocked for — and chose actors who this year were more consistent. Congrats to Tyler and Mary Beth, who both had A-game years!

KansasGuest

People don’t need to feel bad for Tony Geary. He is one of the most feted actors in daytime *and* nighttime. No one has won as many acting Emmys for one role as he has. And, if he had to lose, I think he’d be pleased to lose to Christopher, who began the role of Nikolas opposite Geary 20 years ago. There is a nice symmetry in that IMO, considering both his GH “sons” – Jonathan Jackson & Tyler Christopher – have grown into such fine actors.

Dan

Actually Su, GH submitted two episodes in the Best Drama category, Ron Carlivati obviously wrote the 52nd Anniversary show, the other show was from December, written by Jean Passanante and Shelly Altman. They get judged on both episodes, so as much as you don’t like them, Jean and Shelly share in the award.

Dylan
Guest
Dylan

Thank you Dan! Half of the submission was an episode penned by Ron and his team. As a special black and white episode, it is judged on more than just writing. It is judged on production values, acting, direction, etc, and in those ways, the episode was fantastic! While I do feel it was some of Ron’s best work, It doesnt erase or negate the year long meandering, history bending, over the top, hastily rewritten debacle that was the Fluke storyline. If the win for best show lied solely with Ron Carlivati, he would have won for best writing, which… Read more »

A very well deserved win, I watch all four soaps and right now GH is the best show, the rest of them really need to step up their game as far as storytelling, but GH does needs to improve they tend to drag out stories forever and dropping storylines that fans are invested in only to pick it back up months later and fans lose interest. It’s a shame it wasn’t televised.

Omar, I share your frustration. As much as I liked both the actor and the character (which we know doesn’t always happen), an Emmy seems a bit generous for the little time he had this season. I’ll just console myself that it’s an overall excellence award for his time on GH. The Oscars do it nearly every year as well and it’s equally irritating.

Harry

I think the fact that Sean won speaks volumes about how pointless and erroneous the daytime Emmys are. GH best writing? In what universe and compared to what? Fifty Shades of Grey? Try Fifty Shades of Crappy! Best costume goes to GH? Really? Except for Maxie and maybe Anna, the female characters on GH look like they should be showcased on What Not to Wear. Some of the characters are wearing the most ill fitting, unflattering for their figure types and ages attire I have ever had the misfortune of seeing. To see really well dressed women, check out Y&–they… Read more »

You have so perfectly described my very notions on the fashions that the majority of characters don on GH….save for those two aforementioned ladies, and it is rumored Finola provides her own apparel, which would explain why she always looks so pulled together and… Read more »

It’s been said before, but I’ll say it again. Awards shows where there are only 4 soaps left to battle for Best this and that are silly. It makes the entire award process seem false to me when all soaps left standing (and limping along) are nominated for best soap, best writing, best directing, etc. But if any of them had to win it, I’m glad it was GH. Y&R was dull. DOOL was often stupid in its storytelling, and wasteful of its talent. B&B was way overrated. GH disappointed me alot but it has more talent in its cast… Read more »

Beth – I agree with you in part. It does seem a little silly that all 4 remaining soaps get nominated for “best” this, that, and the other thing, but it beats the alternative – no soap recognition at all. Back in the heyday of soaps there were 14-19 dramas going, but no daytime awards at all. To have daytime awards and not recognize the remaining soaps would be worse – and just nominating 2 of 4 would be odd, too. The only way to rectify this problem would for the networks to bring on more soaps and less food,… Read more »

It actually was nice to see actors in first time wins instead of the predictable usually wins that made the show seem tired with the same old repeat winners…Days mistake was aging the teens when it already had fine younger actors who played Paige, Bev, and Rory!!!

the panel of judges could have went for the tried and true… the obvious

and YES… our dear little Emma… is golden… will shine for the rest of her life

True O’Brien… with the advent of new writers… was at last given material… and it’s not her “doing” that the 2 submissions… are quality

I sometimes… get miffed… that when an actor gets fired… let go
because the writing stunk

and the regime changes… “fire”

this lady… had it in her to feature

I applaud this choice…. and the “winner” is

from DAYS of OUR Lives… True O’Brien… ex-Page… Kassie’ daughter

Congrats to Mary Beth, Paige, Obba. Nice to see Days get some love.

I’m super surprised Jessica won. I just did not enjoy her on Y&R.

I really think Linsey should have won. Also think B&B should have won for Best Show.

Why was Jessica’s win bittersweet, but Paige’s was not? Both left the shows they won Emmys for.

It’s strictly a ratings decision. Awards shows are typically held in the evening, meaning broadcast or cable channels have to decide to give up hours during primetime to air them. They are happy to do it if the award show can bring ratings as good, or higher, than the shows that usually air. But, they aren’t going to give up precious primetime tv slots to an award show that can’t meet what is usually programmed. Sunday night has a LOT of shows that easily get 10 million viewers/hour. The last Daytime Emmy show that was broadcast got under 1 million… Read more »

Congratulations to everyone who was honored for their outstanding contributions to Daytime Television. Of course there will be debates with everyone having a different idea who should have won opposed to who did win, but these type of awards are so subjective, unlike sporting events that have a clear objective to be declared the winner. Personally I am glad to see other people win in the acting categories other than the usual faces that win at Emmy time, it gives me hope the Emmy process is reforming itself and becoming more about awarding good work rather than being fixed by… Read more »

Yea, Mary Beth! So good to see you win (wish I HAD seen it!) 🙁 So good to see a such a genuine, hardworking person win. No ego there–just gratitude. How satisfying and refreshing, for a change. Go, Mary Beth. Hope the writers will continue to write substantive stories for you and Steve Nichols. (PS Do you think the writers can make that “Joey smothers Eva” go away? LOL! Why DID they have to throw in such a sensational event as that? (I know: I know–they’ve been taking a page out of GH’s writers’ notebooks! LOL!)

Thrilled for Tyler Christopher. He always steps up, WHEN they give him storyline where Nic has a POV. Of late, his purpose has been to help deify the almighty Jason.

I was especially happy for Jessica Collins who was truly superb last year. What I always liked about her was that she overcame a character who was often inconsistent and not always likable. She gave a lot of layers to Avery Bailey-Clark. Her scenes with Scott Elrod and Gina Tognoni were especially powerful. She’s one of the few recent exits that I disagreed with (ditto Scott Elrod, Matthew Atkinson, and Kelly Sullivan) . Why can’t they ditch Summer, Natalie, Max, and Stitch instead?

DITTO, for Genie Francis–now when was the last day she was on? Come on, writers–can’t you do better than that? I love it that Finola has a big story and is on lots AND was nominated. She and Genie are contemporaries–why does Genie not have a comparable storyline? And I’d love to see her and Finola working together. Wouldn’t that be great? Two consummate professionals–both with great senses of humor and the ability to improvise. I love that twinkle in Finola’s eye–and Genie had it again–with that impish grim–with her scenes with “Kevin.” Tell me there is more to come!

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

Days Of Our Lives

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
