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.

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 »

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?

To Michael Fairman–please correct anything I said that is not correct. Thanks, Nancy

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!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Photo: JPI

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?
