On Sunday night, the winners were revealed at the 44th annual Daytime Emmy Awards streamed online and held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.  For the second year in a row, General Hospital took top honors for the Outstanding Drama Series.

Executive Producer, Frank Valentini took the stage to accept the trophy on behalf of the long-running ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, GH took home the honors for Outstanding Direction in a Drama Series.  GH won 4 Emmys last night making it the evening’s most rewarded daytime program.

In the top acting categories of the night; it was The Young and the Restless, Gina Tognoni for her role as Phyllis Summers taking home the gold for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. This is Gina’s third Emmy in her enduring daytime career.  She has previously won two for her role as Dinah Marler on Guiding Light.

And making Emmy history was The Bold and the Beautiful’s Scott Clifton.  After winning his first Lead Actor in a Drama Series award for his role as Liam Spencer, Clifton became the only male actor in daytime drama history to have the trifecta – he has now took home gold in the Younger Actor, Supporting Actor, and Lead Actor categories.

It was also a great night for another previous Daytime Emmy winner.  Steve Burton was awarded the Emmy for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Dylan McAvoy on The Young and the Restless.  He had previously been won in this category for his role as Jason Morgan on GH.

Performers involved in storylines revolving mental illness also did extremely well at last night’s ceremonies.  Kate Mansi took home the gold for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Abigail Deveraux on Days of our Lives, and Bryan Craig made it a two-peat for his performance as Morgan Corinthos on General Hospital in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series.

General Hospital’s Lexi Ainsworth was awarded her first Daytime Emmy for her role as Kristina Corinthos Davis on General Hospital.  

The Young and the Restless took home the honors for the Outstanding Writing in  a Drama Series, and Jim O’Heir won the Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series for his role as Matt Cannistra on The Bold and the Beautiful.

But she is Phyllis. I think what you mean is she is not Michelle Stafford. And it’s totally a legitimate opinion for people to prefer Michelle’s portrayal. But the Emmy Awards aren’t about comparisons. In fact, if Gina tried to imitate Michelle’s style, she would never win an Emmy because it would be so inauthentic. The best acting is when a performer brings shades of herself and uses them to influence her choices, making the character more fully realized. That’s what both Michelle and Gina do, which is why they are both well-respected actresses. Gina does amazing things with the… Read more »

I thought April Fool’s Day had passed a month ago. GH (aka Mob Central) actually won for “Outstanding Drama Series”?!?! What a colossal joke! There’s nothing at all that’s “outstanding” about what’s currently seen on that hot-mess of a soap with those two old out-of-touch hack women as the head writers. That’s why these daytime awards cannot be taken seriously at all anymore. No wonder they were taken off broadcast TV for good. To me, these awards have been completely watered down. With only four daytime dramas left, it stands to reason that there’s now a much greater chance of… Read more »

I used to think that way too. What kind of a competition is it really with so few competitors? Is it really much of a “win”? And in some ways, I still think like that. But then I look at a category like the news program or entertainment news. You have GMA, Today and CBS morning / Sunday mornings in one, and Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood and Extra in the other. The field is very thin in those categories too with the same nominees every year but watching them accept the awards they won showed me how much it meant… Read more »

The writing for GH is God awful!!! There’s a good reason why Jean and Shelly were fired from Y&R.
The actors and the dialogue writers should be paid over time for dealing with the crap which is constantly being thrown at them.
Time for the EP and head writers to go bye-bye.

Excellent show- loved the tribute to Agnes Nixon and seeing Susan Lucci also the Bold and Beautiful tribute and the singing was great, too. Totally delighted with Gina Tognoni’s well-deserved win. I was surprised that Chuck Pratt won best writing. He did bring a lot of explosive storylines, and I see that can make a good emmy reel, but things were constantly happening-again, exciting-but always left me wondering why, how, what??
Great work on the tributes, MF, also the red carpet coverage was fun to watch and appreciate the hard work that went into the entire evening.

Surprised by a lot of these winners.

Kate totally deserved her Emmy.

Scott and Gina are great actors, but I am surprised they won.

Don’t watch GH so I am partial to the other three soaps. I do think B&B should have won best show, but there’s always next year!

Congratulations to everyone.

Is someone supposed to make sense out of this nonsensical word salad?

I’m sure Frank, Jean and Shelly were thinking about how the show is a “mess” and has “crashed” when they were celebrating winning their second consecutive Best Drama Series Emmy, based on episodes featuring many of the actors you maligned.

@Brian…Many of us consider Patrick’s “word salads” to be an essential ingredient of a healthy daily diet here at MFSoaps. His unique style of expression is an absolute mainstay…and yes, sense can be made from his interesting and highly creative manner of writing! It just sometimes requires a bit of equally-inspired imagination on the part of the reader!

I agree. However, I am not a fan of the character, nor am I fan of the “Morgan” character, or Bryan Craig, for that matter. Both characters are spoiled and rotten to the core, very narcissist, in my opinion. I just don’t care for the characters or how they are portrayed by the actors.

I thought Finola had one of her best shots to win this year since she’s been back. Her reel was fantastic from start to finish. Not sure what more she has to do. 26 years and counting since her last win.

I had Laura Wright for the win slightly ahead of NLG, but was definitely rooting hard for both of them. I don’t watch Y&R, but in watching Gina Tognoni’s reel, I wouldn’t say anyone was robbed, however.

speaking of big triangle emote : with Chad, Ben, and Abs. this knocked . so much range of emotion… and all these three hit

Watched the show on Facebook and had no issues other than the feed froze once. I was skeptical about the whole streaming online thing, but my hat off to the producers, thought it was a well produced show for the most part. Although, I think Mary Hart might still be giving her speech, lol. I wrote on here the other night about how I didn’t think GH would win Best Show with the episodes they submitted, the hostage crisis at the church where Sonny jumped out of the wheelchair to save the day. I was wrong. Still not a fan… Read more »

Billy Flynn and/or Peter Bergman should have gotten Lead Actor. Scott is a very good actor and I know he puts out very good work, but Billy had an amazingly honest reel while Peter’s is so visceral. I would have liked to see them take it, or have Vincent Irizary be the spoiler. So happy for Kate. While I actually don’t think her reel did her work justice, having followed her work last year in its entirety I know that she deserved it. It was gut-wrenching and at times very hard to watch. Lead Actress was very tough to call.… Read more »

That’s so nice of you to say! I’m afraid other than the headlines on websites such as this one and their reels for award show purposes, I honestly and truly know nothing else about the work of any GH actor. I caught a glimpse a few weeks back of a show, and was on the verge of tears. I recognized so few of the players on screen…I was so disappointed with how far gone this show has, well, gone. I don’t recognize it at all. I watched that show throughout University (I guess what you Americans would call “college” :P)… Read more »

Thank you for your interesting update and kind thoughts, Jules! Yes, I’m very well, too, although GH is an abysmal disappointment for many of us these days…I could barely make it through the entire “Tracy” episode that was featured on Friday, and I’m limping toward her swansong on May 4th…but let’s suffice to say, I “generally” rely on video snippets and mostly this wonderful website to stay apprised of the show’s happenings. It’s become much more of a daily habit than I believe GH shall ever be again, as I truly enjoy the “cast of characters” featured here at MFSoaps!!!… Read more »

I was surprised that Nichelle Nichols didn’t win for her stint as Lucinda. Those scenes with her and Kristoff were heartbreaking and performed superbly by both of them. But the real snub of the night was Laura Wright. She absolutely slayed her scenes as Carly grieving her son’s death, and provided so much weight in every scene she was in. She’s an actress who can speak so much without saying a single word, and I think she deserved the win this year. That’s not to say Gina wasn’t fantastic as well; the court scenes with Victor and the reveal with… Read more »

The best daytime drama series category was first created in 1972 and GH is still the runaway leader with 13 total show wins (81, 84, 95, 96, 97, 99, 00, 05, 06, 08, 12, 16, and 17) so congrats to the cast and crew of GH for taking home the top prize once again.

YES! Bravo to Bryan Craig and Congrats to Lexi Ainsworth! Best young actor and actress of 2017! Bryan’s emmy reel was truly brillant and packed an emotional punch that was unmatched compared to the other four guys in his category. I was blown away by this acting performance and it was even more riveting watching it a second time without any cuts in the scenes. Bryan submitted the heartbreaking powerful scenes of Morgan’s reaction to Sonny and Carly deciding to have him committed (which was the majority of this six minute reel) along with the roof scenes with Morgan considering… Read more »

Couldn’t agree more again. I got chills watching Bryan Craig’s scenes when they originally aired and again in watching his Emmy reel. Bryan never got the credit he deserved for the strides he made from the time he joined the show, learning and improving under the wing of greats like Maurice Benard, Laura Wright, Maura West, to become one of the best young actors in the industry. I was sorry to see him leave GH, but I have doubt he’ll have a lot of success in whatever he does. Lexi, they didn’t write a lot for her, as you pointed… Read more »

I have a feeling, Dan and Jay, that Bryan may reprise his role down the line. I know many people didn’t like the character; others feel it would take away from all the grieving that the characters (and, the audience, went through). I don’t agree. I’d love to see Bryan/Morgan back on the canvas. After all, it’s a soap and his body was never found. It doesn’t take away from the stories and acting following his supposed death and I think his there’s plenty of story left for Morgan.

Funny quote: I would like to know how you get robbed if the Emmy was never in your possession to begin with? Hughes was lead not supporting so was Mansi the woman from B&B her reel was great and she was supporting and when was the guy from B&B considered a guest he is recurring . This is why a lot of viewers shake their heads as far as best soap none they all are struggling!

I really don’t get wha’ts so great about Scott Clifton, he really is just playing himself. He does deserve an award for sustained performance though in dealing with B&Bs repetitive storytelling for so many years now.

I was so happy to be able to view the Emmys this year. I could have done without that lame banter about whether or not Ms. Underwood would get to sleep with Mr. Lopez and the Basset Hound march that took too long, but was other wise happy with it. Would I have liked to have seen other people win some of those awards? Yes, but I don’t begrudge anyone who did win them. Our favorites always win because they win our adoration. That being said, I am so over the moon for my GH peeps who won! Yeah!

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

Photo: JPI

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Photo: JPI

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

Photo: BlueAeris

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
