The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be presented by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences on Sunday May 1st.   The biggest award of the night is always which soap opera will win for Outstanding Drama Series.  This year all four daytime dramas have made it to the final round.

In the rules for the Drama Series category each hour-long drama submits two episodes.  However, because B&B is only a half hour, they can submit four episodes for contention, which gives them roughly the same amount of total airtime for judging.

Below we can reveal the episode numbers and airdates and main storyline points contained within their submissions.  Read on to find out what your favorite soaps chose to represent themselves in the competion.

The Bold and the Beautiful: episodes#7079  & #7080 airdates 5/18 and 5/19/2015, and episodes #7138 & #7139 airdates: 8/10 & 8/11/2015

Unlike the hour soaps, because B&B is only a half hour, they can submit four episodes for contention which gives them roughly the same amount of total airtime for judging.  For their first submission, B&B chose the episode where Maya discloses her truth to Rick … that she is transgender.  Waiting for him to walk out on her, he does the opposite and tells her he loves her.  Meanwhile, Bill is ready to make a tabloid spectacle out of finding out Maya was born a man.  In their second submission, it’s Maya’s wedding day to Rick, and Julius and Maya have it out in front of the wedding party in what was to be the happiest day of her life, as Maya’s father refuses to accept Maya for who she is.

For their daytime drama submissions, Days of our Lives chose the episode where after Abigail’s harrowing experience with serial killer Ben, she is face-to-face with him at the Salem police station in the interrogation room, desperately trying to find out where he took her newborn son.  Ben, who has been arrested, has clearly had a break from reality at this point.  Abby tells the police the reason Ben killed so many loved ones in Salem. Meanwhile, Hope has kidnapped Dr. Malcolm in hopes of getting information on who is responsible for Bo’s capture which led him to his ultimate death.   In the second episode: it’s the Salem bicentennial celebration at the Martin mansion, and following Aiden and Hope’s wedding.  Caroline is in the hospital pleading with Kayla to realize that she did receive a call from Bo.  Meanwhile, Bo and Steve finally make it back to Salem, only to find out that Hope just married Aiden.  Meanwhile, as Hope and Aiden spend the night together as newlyweds, and as the bicentennial celebration fireworks bring everyone closer together, Aiden is planning on murdering his bride.

General Hospital:  episodes #13274 airdate: 4/01/2015, and #13458 airdate: 12/22/2015

For their daytime drama series submissions, General Hospital went with the black and white, to color 52nd anniversary episode which reveals the truth of Luke Spencer’s childhood. Luke comes to the long-buried truth that he is responsible for the deaths of his mother Lena, and his despicable father Tim Spencer.  For their second reel, GH chose the Nutcracker gala drama which featured several stories including:  Nikolas and Jason’s fight in which Nikolas goes over the balcony, Patrick finally seeing Robin and rescuing her from Jerry Jaks, Sabrina telling Michael that Carlos is her baby’s father, and Sam revealing to Jason she broke her engagement off with Patrick, and Elizabeth realizing she lost the man she loved due to her deception.

The Young and the Restless: episodes #10768 airedate: 10/05/2015,  and #10769 airdate: 10/06/2015

In their submission with back-to-back episodes, Y&R chose the fallout of the Adam reveal with Chelsea telling Billy and Victoria. … Gabriel Bingham is Adam.  Meanwhile, Phyllis is telling Victor and Jack that Gabriel is Adam, as news spreads in Genoa City that Adam is indeed alive.  However, Jack has known for quite some time!  At the Underground, Sage admits her part in her scheme with Gabriel/Adam cover-up to Nick. Adam then had a confrontation with Billy, and then Victor shows up and punches Adam.  In the pickup episode: Adam and Victor finally have their long-awaited moment that has been brewing for over a year.  At Delia’s roadside memorial, Billy talks to his beloved daughter about Adam and that he swears to make him pay. Victoria arrives and assures Billy there will be justice.

Without a doubt;
General Hospital the black and white 52nd anniversary episode which reveals the truth of Luke Spencer’s childhood..
It is truly noted as the best episode to be archived as the best of the best..
It was indeed, phenomenal.. It will never be forgotten ..

52nd anniversary show should NOT WIN–it sullied a great legacy, a once-great character, and a once-great show.

The Young and the Restless should be the winner of Outstanding Drama Series. Bring it home Y&R!!!!!!

Highly doubt it Joe, Y&R didn’t have a good “year” even with the plane crash among everything else I don’t see them take it this year, Days or GH on the other Hnad have it in the Bag. PRatt doesn’t need to win or JFP

All that will be judged is the episodes submitted. Nothing else in the year will matter at all.

What was Days thinking?? They will never win with those episodes. There were so many other back to back episodes in the fall that were outstanding on all counts. Corday never learns. GH won’t win because the second pick is a shadow of the the quality of the first pick. It’s a race between BB and YR. And I think BB will get it this year because of the controversial story and how well it was done. YR should also win. I’d do a tie. GH Anniv episode should get a special award; it is in a class by itself.

” Tony ” YES ! I thought the same thing… WHAT there they thinking in choosing these eps did they have to pick and choose around any and all violence??? was my only thought MORE to the POINT : “…There were so many other back to back episodes in the fall that were outstanding on all counts. ” I clearly “thought” DAYS had in in the bag… till I read their submissions last night there is ONE ep… that I thought was so spot on… so well done so well crafted… and it was the scenes when Ben tells Clyde… Read more »

While the Fluke storyline is definitely not my favorite, the 52 Anniversary on GH would be my vote for it’s originality and ensemble cast.

Hands down: Maya disclosing to Rick she was a Transgender woman and Rick embracing her that he loves her. Bold and the beautiful.

2nd choice under Bold would be GH: Flashback to Luke being a child and accidently killing his mother. The balcony scene I don’t think was a strong scene. But the Patrick seeing once again Robin alive was a show stopping scene.

I think there was too much camp in the scene with Patrick and Robin. Cheez Whiz.

B&B but a B&B/GH tie would be nice too.

Days was the most consistent and deserves to win, but based on these reels I would pick B&B over GH. Days submitted poorly imo. GH has a great first episode but a too busy second one. All four of the B&B episodes are superb. Y&R chose odd episodes imo…. I def. think the two losing shows from last year are the likely winners this year, with the edge to B&B.

Patrick

yeah no matter that my choices ; of course, DAYS for the WIN GH because I watch the darned show… argh! i’ll go with @Rhonda for the gimmick… just knowing it’s a celebratory “laud” farewell to Anthony Geary… let’s be done with him DAYS was so consistent driven and APB from all of last August throughout December. THIS WAS DAYS to lose… and for all intent… from the submitted eps… argh! GH fans are lauding that black and white ep… i’d rather see GH win over Y&R have to say…. since B&B can submit 4 shows… and for the content… Read more »

GH may have just screwed themselves out of winning by not submitting the follow up episode to the 52nd anniversary show as their second submission. There were some amazing dramatic scenes with the Spencer siblings in Luke, Bobbie, and Patricia in their old family home. It also ended with a truly heartbreaking scene with Patricia passing away in her wheelchair and Val crying over her dead mother as Carly tried to console her. I can’t beleive they didn’t go with those back to to back episodes cause they would’ve been a lock to win. B&B is now probably gonna take… Read more »

Days episodes were good directing not overall drama series. I would pick the episode were bo save hope from aiden and the episode were bo dies in hope arms. It’s looks like B&B will win this one.

Although I liked those episodes, they weren’t the best DAYS episodes to submit. They should’ve submitted two episodes that aired back to back and it’s crazy to submit a second episode that originally aired before the first.

Better luck next year, DAYS!

I sure hope Y&R doesn’t win. That will only encourage the writers to continue writing those horrible, boring storylines that make no sense. They have changed the characters so much that they are unrecognizable..

GH’s 50th Anniversary episode was great — it was Ron Carlivati — but the Nutcracker gala left much to be desired so I think the unevenness between the two episodes will tip the vote in Y&R’s favor.

My vote Goes to GH, Superb Classic Black and White Episode.

O.M.G. This one was easy General Hospital 52 Anniversary. B & B 2nd. with the transgender reveal story.

I loved GH’s Anniversary episode, but I am not sure anyone can compete with what B&B submitted (and I am not a B&B fan!) I think what Days submitted was okay, but why not use the episode where Bo found out he was dying? I do think GH brought it over DAYS this year and I felt the exact opposite last year. I really want to see GH win, but my gut says it will go to B&B!

Mary SF

Why didn’t Days go with the episodes where Bo dies– that scene with him dying in Hopes arms as the snow begins to fall were beautiful and more what the show is about than these other episodes– oh well. GH had to submit something with the new writers because if they won with just RC stuff that would be egg on their face because they fired him. Right now I am leaning towards B&B to take the category– those were all very strong episodes, but the Adam fall out is the type of story that has kept Y&R at number… Read more »

GH all the way! The 52nd Anniversary show was one of the best episodes they’ve done in a long time. The acting (Tony Geary, Joey Luthman as young Luke, whomever the actress was that played young Patricia, Laura Wright, Dee Wallace, such tremendous acting from top to bottom), the writing, the production with the black and white look, everything was top notch. For the voters that might feel that episode was too gimmicky, they also submitted a solid episode from the J&S regime, which I think shows good balance and variety in the type of material presented. Admittedly, I don’t… Read more »

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.

Kristian Alfonso Departs Days of our Lives After 37 Years

In a bombshell announcement, Days of our Lives enduring and ever-popular star, Kristian Alfonso (Hope Williams) has decided to make her exit from the NBC daytime drama series after more than 37 years in her role.

Kristian made her debut as a teenaged Hope Williams in 1983 and quickly rose to popularity and became soap-famous; along with her on-screen romance to Bo Brady then played by Peter Reckell. Together as one of soaps most all-time popular duos and separately, Alfonso has remained one of soap opera’s most notable performers.   There were only two times throughout her time in Salem, that Kristian took breaks from the show; during one of them she starred on CBS’s Falcon Crest.

According to Deadline who broke the news; in a statement to the outlet, Alfonso shared, “I feel blessed and honored to have been invited into people’s homes for over three decades. However, it is now time for me to write my next chapter.”

And it appears its already a wrap for Alfonso, who will not be returning to the series when the show is planned to return to production in the fall and come early September.

Kristian added:  “I will not be returning to Days when it resumes production in September.  I’ve already filmed my last episode several months ago.”

In a heartfelt post on her Instagram account, the actress gave special thanks to the late Betty Corday (mother of DAYS EP Ken Corday), and of course, her millions of fans who loved her as Hope throughout her time on the soap.  You can read it in full below.
