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.

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.

GH should have this one in the bag! That anniversary episode was stellar!

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 he did it…. all… and the sublime acting by James Read’ Clyde… (as he’s being taken to Florida for crimes )

it was a tour de force acting TREAT , just in awe of both James Reed and Rob Scott Wilson. this is just one

as for GH : meh? on the black and white EP… much ado about nothing… if it wins on just that alone… OK let’s have another tie…. GH and DAYS for the WINs

Right on–“much ado about nothing.”

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.

Will this be televised?

No.

well… in the latest SOD issue… their is an article, from NATAS

nat’l arts television and sciences… which is a nonprofit organization. and they footed the bill for last years emmys @ POP network

just couldn’t do it this year…. but… NATAS WILL BE RECORDING the show… they have to

so it can go in their archives …

they did state: they will put on the internet… all the acceptance speeches.

No. But producers are trying to get it streamed online.

I read they will record it and it will be available later, after the show.

Oh god………………this looks like GH’s year! I HOPE NOT!
Y&R comes close!

Don’t think B&B nor DAYS will win!

I see days or GH or even B&B winning it, Y&R NO way sorry Pratt and JFP have made the show terrible

It wasn’t all terrible! No, I don’t see DAYS winning!

Come to think of it……….B&B did submit their best reel!

I see B&B winning along with Days IMO, Y&R no the writing has been all over the place plus nothing is moving.

Still don’t see DAYS winning.
B&B has the best Reel. Hoping GH doesn’t win. I still wouldn’t count out Y&R

IA B&B is a shoe in no doubt it, Y&R i don’t see them winning this year. Don’t count out Days Yet, you never know stranger things have happened.

Well, let’s just agree to disagree then! 🙂 🙂

GH-for me….i liked the flashback episode…next is Days

I think B&B.

Days…a lot of quality acting. No gimmicks. Nothing except a could be real story and a mom trying to do the best she can with a psycho to find her baby!

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.

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 of transgender EQUALITY…. they have nothing to lose… and could be the winners

Y&R: whatever it takes…. no chance of win… unless the uber hottie and talented Justin Hartley is that affecting in these back to back eps.

IT’S A TOSS UP …

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 it over GH.

Michael: I really hope it was a misprint by whoever released this info cause the 12/21/15 episode of GH which is #13458 was a filler episode and nothing happened other than Julian proposing to Alexis. It was the day after with the 12/22/15 episode of GH which is #13459 that lots of big stuff went down. I am talking about Patrick reuniting with Robin, Jason and Nik fighting on the balcony, Michael’s reaction to Sabrina’s confession, and Tracy ripping Paul a new one when she caught him with Ava. I really think if you had combined this very good episode in December with the truly great episode from April then it would’ve been a easy win for GH. I just really hope the The 52nd anniversary show is enough to carry them cause if that’s really what the submitted as their other episode then it’s gonna go to B&B.

To you, Michael Fairman–bless you for all the work and the columns and the enthusiasm you put forth in support of the shows and of us–the devoted fans.
Thanks so very much! 🙂

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!

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 one for years, so it will be close but it should be CBS’s year one way or another

days is awful and doesn’t deserve anything except Mary Beth was great

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 watch any of the other soaps, but I feel this is GH’s award to lose.

Michael: Is there any chance we can get some polls set up listing all the nominees in the various categories, so we can see who the consensus picks are for each award? I think that would fun and informative.

B&B. Enough said.

Y & R all the way!

I notice Days, Gh and B&B all have guest stars in their reels

Days Of Our Lives

Matthew Ashford and Melissa Reeves Talk Return to DAYS for Doug’s Funeral, Susan Seaforth Hayes, and Their Enduring Friendship

Last week, Days of our Lives celebrated the taping of their 15,000th episode which is tentatively scheduled to air on December 3rd. The story will feature emotional and heart-tugging scenes of Doug Williams funeral and honor his portrayer, the beloved Bill Hayes, who passed away on January 12th at the age of 98.

While the actors, producers, and crew took a lunch time break to pose for some pictures and speak with the press, they knew they would have to get back to taping the funeral, which was going to make it a tough day, but also cathartic for all who loved Bill Hayes.

Several returns have thus far been announced including; Melissa Reeves reprising her signature role of Jennifer Horton (a part she first played in 1985), and Matthew Ashford as Jack Deveraux. Reeves had last appeared on the show back in 2021, and she was replaced by Emmy-winner Cady McClain in her absence when Jennifer was in storylines. In real-life, Melissa had moved full-time to Tennessee along with her husband, Scott Reeves (ex-DAYS, GH, Y&R). Now, and as previously reported, Reeves will first appear back on DAYS for the Thanksgiving episodes with the Hortons.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Matt and Melissa during the 15,000th episode celebration to get their take on: being back for these special episodes, how it has been working with and watching Susan Seaforth Hayes portray Julie’s grief over losing Doug, and how they have supported each other through the years. Check out what they shared below.

Melissa, you are back on the set of Days of our Lives for this very emotional and special moment in the series history. How does it feel?

MELISSA: Oh, my goodness. I am honored. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but to be here for Bill. He was like my real-life dance partner. He taught me how to ballroom dance. And to be here for Susan, of course, who’s just been our sweet hero this whole week. We’re just following her lead. She’s just been this incredibly strong example for us in the midst of this trial and season of her life. She is like just lifting us all up with her. It’s been incredible.

I was at Bill Hayes memorial service which was truly incredible and I know at the time you were in Tennessee. It was moving and celebratory of his life, all at the same time.

MELISSA: That’s all I have heard. I have to watch it on You Tube. They said it was just a real celebration of his life and I love that.

Photo: JPI

This must be difficult for Susan Seaforth Hayes depicting the death of Doug, when she is still grieving the loss of her beloved husband. (Susan pictured above with the returning Stephen Schnetzer who plays her on-screen brother, Steve Olson).

MELISSA: I’m sure Susan has those moments at home by herself, but she’s so good at being a leader and leading all of us. We’re following her, you know, and she’s like, “This is how I want to feel today.” And we’re just going along with her, you know? It’s so sweet.

Photo: JPI

How is it to see Matt Ashford again live and in-person?

MELISSA: You know, Matt and I can go years without talking, or seeing each other, and then the minute we see each other we’re chatting away.

MATT: Melissa was out on set doing a scene yesterday on the phone talking to a stage manager; as she was telling some really tough news on the phone. I’m like crying in the background, literally, I’m off-stage crying.

MELISSA: And then we get like back into normal life, and we’re like, okay, “What’s happening? What’s happening with this … or what’s happening with that?”

I had read, Melissa, that you were in touch with Matt about if there night be a possibility for you to reprise your role as Jennifer for these special episodes?

MELISSA: Yes. Well, Matt was like, “Hey! Would you want to come back? “And I was like, “Matt, you know, I would always come back. ”

MATT:  Every time I come here to Days of our Lives, they ask, “Where’s Missy? How’s Missy?” Everybody backstage says, “I miss her.” All of the crew is asking about her and saying, “It would be nice to see Missy. Nothing wrong with you Matt, but …”  They said, “Where is she?” I said, “She wants to come!”

Photo: JPI

There are some beautiful photos of Missy and Bill and Susan thorough the years that I found. It just reminded me of just the deep and entrenched history we all have had with the show, personally and professionally.

MATT: Missy is roughly the age where Francis Reid (ex-Alice Horton) was when she started the show, which is just crazy.

Photo: JPI

I’ve always said Missy was going to be the next generation Alice. Do you feel that Jennifer is the heir apparent matriarch of the Horton family?

MELISSA: Yes. I mean, this has been greatest blessing of my life, and that would be great. I told Ken Corday (executive producer, Days of our Lives) when I was 17 that this show would be my life. Ken always told me, “This is your home,” and I’ve always felt like that.

How have gotten through the scenes watching Susan Seaforth Hayes as Julie go through the loss of Doug?

MATT: Susan is bringing her best performance life for her and Bill. I mean, she’s a showbiz baby. She always has been one hundred percent, and she’s doing it for him, and this is who they’ve always been. So, you’re seeing this amazing performance colored by her life. She has her private life as Susan, but she has enough plugged into Julie that she’s done amazing work. The director, producers and writers are giving her room to live in these moments and it’s quite wonderful.

Photo: JPI

Have you already broken down in tears during the taping?

MELISSA: Yesterday, but today’s taping of the actual funeral I think they want us to try and be just more celebratory.

MATT: I mean, it is a beautiful long life for Bill Hayes and his character of Doug Williams, and so it will be about that. Then, you get a bunch of us together in the church pews, and there’s going to be hijinks.

MELISSA: We all have been through the waves of grief. You have that awful cry and then all of a sudden you feel okay.  There are those family situations we are portraying where you’re like, “What do we do? What do we do now? You know, no one knows what to do. But, it’s so sweet. I’m looking forward to seeing how the scenes all turn out.

So, are you glad that Matt and Melissa are back for the 15K episode and Doug’s funeral? From what we can tell, it’s going to be quite an emotional journey for Days of our Lives fans, and especially the performance of Susan Seaforth Hayes,

Days Of Our Lives

Ron Carlivati Talks on Decision to Make Days of our Lives 15000th Episode About Doug’s Funeral, and Previews Chances for WGA Award

This week, Days of our Lives celebrated the taping of their 15,000th episode. In of it itself, that is an incredible accomplishment for the long-running soap opera currently streaming on Peacock.

However, this on set gathering was a bit different. Though the show is celebrating their achievement, they are also in the middle of taping scenes surrounding the death and the funeral of Doug Williams, played by the late Bill Hayes, who passed away on January 12th of this year at the age of 98.

As previously revealed many longtime favorites are back to honor Bill and the character of Doug including: Gloria Loring (Liz), Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Matthew Ashford (Jack), Maree Cheatham (Marie), Victoria Konefal (Ciara) and Stephen Schnetzer (Steve) to name but a few.

Photo: JPI

Michael Fairman TV was in attendance and spoke with Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati to gain some insight into how the 15,000 episode was crafted and the decision to honor the character of Doug Williams and Bill Hayes as its epicenter. In addition, Ron weighed-in on this Sunday’s April 14th WGA (Writers Guild of America) Awards, where he and his writing team are facing off with General Hospital for the daytime drama prize. Here’s what Ron shared below.

Was this your idea to make the 15,000th episode centered around Doug’s funeral and passing?

RON: It was. When you’re looking at it, and laying out the calendar for the whole year and you see 15,000 is coming up, we’re like, “What are we going to do?” And then, we got the news that Bill had passed away and something kind of clicked. I was like, “We should honor Doug on that show.” So then, we started to kind of build around that … when does he pass away? How does he pass away? Who could come back? You know, it’s a lot.  I’m very pleased with the returns that we got as there’s so much that you could do. We wanted everybody we could get. So, we put together a wish list and Janet Drucker (co-executive producer, Days of our Lives) made it happen.

Photo: JPI

You have Melissa Reeves back as Jennifer, when the role was last played by Cady McClain. What has it meant to have Missy back for these shows?

RON: It was so nice to see Missy Reeves. I think Cady has done such a good job, but on the 15,000th episode to see Missy as Jennifer, it’s a big deal. So having her was great, and overall, the milestone was a big undertaking, because you want to live up to it. You want the 15,000th episode to be good. Now, it has a lot of real emotion that you’re playing. because for the cast and the crew they’re honoring Bill Hayes just as much as we’re honoring Doug Williams.

Photo: JPI

Was it hard for you and the team to write this episode?

RON: Yes. I’ll tell you why it was hard to write.  When I wrote, for example, Asa’s (Phillip Carey) death on One Life to Live or Victor’s (John Aniston) on DAYS, Asa is a different type of character. Like, you could have characters going, “Oh! I’m glad he is dead.” You could have different points of view, but with Doug, you’re not having that. Every person loves this man. No one had a bad relationship with him. So, you’re challenge as a writer is how do you make it that not everybody’s saying the same thing and doing the same thing. And so, we tried to find ways to make the episode about all the familial relationships and yet, how do you make it about Doug and yet broaden the scope.

Photo: JPI

I had spoken to Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), a week after Bill’s memorial, for an interview. She said that she felt very fortunate that you did include her on discussions of how you would tackle Doug’s passing. How did that conversation go?

RON: First, I attended Bill’s funeral, which was incredible. I said to so many people it was an emotional service, but it was hard to be sad at this. The guy had an incredible life and it was an incredible celebration. And so, you’re sitting there watching this knowing that you now have to write something similar. And how do you write something that lives up to what you just witnessed? I wanted to talk to Susan to get her thoughts about, you know, how much do you want this to be about keeping Bill separate from Doug. How comfortable are you sharing your grief. She was incredible to talk to. It was a great chat.

You’re in the middle of taping these major scenes for the 15,000 episode to air in December. How do you think it’s going? Have you seen any of the scenes?

RON:  I haven’t seeing anything. I mean, we were still making changes to the script up till this morning!

Photo: JPI

The Writers Guild Awards are this Sunday, April 14th and once again this year there are two daytime drama nominees, General Hospital and Days of our Lives. How are you feeling about your chances this year?

RON: It is often just GH and us in the category. I’ve won three years in a row, so I’m kind of feeling like it’s their turn.

Photo: JPI

What episodes did you submit for contention? If I recall, they had to do with Victor’s memorial.

RON: The episodes we submitted were centered around Victor’s funeral. I think one has story with Vivian (Louise Sorel). We had some fun stuff, we had some emotional stuff at Victor’s death, and I am pretty sure that our submission was three episodes right around that time.

Did you make the decision to go with those episodes because there was a mix of humor and drama?

RON: I like to have some humor, but it was also the funeral, then there’s Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) giving birth, and then Vivian’s crashing the reading of the will. So, we had a lot of fun and it’s hard sometimes to pick three that tell a story, as opposed to submitting for the Daytime Emmys, where the writing team only submits two shows. So, we shall see how it goes on Sunday.
