I am glad we will see the Daytimr Emmys. I think the daytime genre is treated very unfair. The daytime population have a lot of fans that respect and care about them

I agree completely. I feel like Daytime shows, the stars, creators, writers, etc & the fans of daytime shows are being disrespected by the Daytime Emmys not being aired on tv. There are still alot of us out here who greatly enjoy oyr daytime shows.

It is a travesty the way they treat the Daytime Soap Operas. I have watched the Soap Operas for 56 years. All Daytime Emmy’s on TV for years until recent ones.. The actors and people behind of the shows deserve so much more. Day time Actors work so hard,,,Ask any Big Screen Actor, many, many were Soap Opera actors and say how little they work the Big Screen compared to the many pages of scrip and work in a Soap Opera. We have tons of music shows and Screen shows. The Daytime actors deserve a show of their own. I… Read more »

I agree. I felt disrespected as a viewer not to have the 2017 daytime emmy’s aired on live television. I would have enjoyed watching the winners accepting their awards, listening to their acceptance speaches. The sponsor’s of these shows should be scratching their heads.

I guess if we at least get to see the Emmys, it is something. Of course i would have preferred the show being broadcast on live TV but I’ll still get to see the statues being handed out as opposed to reading about it in Soap Opera digest.

Still not happy as many other all other awards are shown on televised but no longer for the Daytime Emmy Awards it’s not fair. We the fans we should be able to see this live. It’s just not fair some of us might not be able to see it on Facebook or Twitter because of the different hours we work. Not happy.

Live steamed is better than nothing, yet I remembered the last time it was live streamed it was horrible– no way to edit out drunken slurs, the whole thing lacked the polish of a professionally produced broadcast—also there are many fans who are not into social media, don’t follow either Facebook or Twitter because they don’t know how or they simply don’t want to– it would have been nice if a major network would show some class and support this award show — I mean if a major network is willing to air The People’ s Choice Award where the… Read more »

If fans don’t follow Facebook or Twitter or social media in general; no wonder the genre is dying. The vast majority of viewers can’t be bothered with or don’t know how to use social media spells doom for daytime soaps.

Mary SF
Guest

Well that is a lot of horsefeathers– the majority of daytime dramas died out long before social media even became a thing and if the genre dies it will be BECAUSE of INTERNET which is basically replacing ALL network television in general– also the WWW gave rise to everyone having a shorten attention span and stealing a whole generation of younger folks if they didn’t have social media they might have checked out daytime drama—- but I do agree the future of entertainment consumption in on the Internet or through the internet on demand — so just like in the… Read more »

The DayTime Emmy’s for the Soaps is mostly a fashion show. The judges are not all soap fans and make decisions that are rushed just getting through the entries. Actually the time when people actually gave a ding about soap opera awards has long long long ago passed. And why on earth would anyone care if a cooking show hosts would get an award , I mean to sit through the whole daytime to get to the soaps is annoyingly boring. I watched one, just one, daytime emmy and never watched once since.. After the awards are given the soap… Read more »

While it is a shame that it won’t get televised, the show will still be broadcast online, which is better than nothing at all, and hopefully, with Facebook Live (streaming through Youtube would have been much better IMHO), the show will also accessible outside the United States. The key for a successful online broadcast is the same as with any live show, it has to be well-produced and polished for viewers to appreciate, and that is something I thought the producers of the show last year needed and were able to learn when they did this the second time last… Read more »

It’s a shame a bunch of nonsense is broadcast everyday all day. Why can’t some producers once year televise this show? A few years ago the head of CBS said that he love to help the Daytime Emmys get back on the air. Considering CBS says it’s #1 in daytime TV across the board. It’s a sham they can’t honor the shows. Daytime has always had the most loyal fans amd not to have The Emmys broadcasted on TV again is shameful. I much rather watch “my stories” (lol) then any so called reality based TV shows aired ad nauseam… Read more »

I agree. There are still many, many loyal daytime fsns that would still love to be able to watch the Daytime Emmys on television. We, the stars, writets, etc of daytime deserve thr respect of the Daytime Emmys being on tv. Not to mention that some of us are only sble to get internet on our phones. I don’t pretend to speak for for everyone, but I have talked to several friends & family members who refuse to try to watch any show on a phone. It’s just not as enjoyable.

There ought to be a way to get someone or some group of people to air it on tv again. Besides myself, I know several people that greatly miss getting to watch it & that’s just people I know in “real” life, not to mention the people I’ve met on facebook, twitter, that also feel the same way.

I think it is time to either (1) scale the entire Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony back to a nice, low-key lunch where the awards are given or (2) end the affair completely. I have been a soap opera fan for 50 years and am not advocating for the demise of the industry. However, when this ceremony can’t even find a network (traditional or cable) to broadcast it out of the roughly 50 options that would be available, it is time to reconsider the approach. It is degrading this ceremony has been reduced to on-line streaming. (No offense to this site… Read more »

Isn’t it the truth. .they act like streaming is the HOLY GRAIL of viewership. .IT’S NOT! When it comes to these awards fans want the luxury and pride of watching a TELEVISED event. Back in the day you even got a well produced nighttime episode of one of the networks daytime dramas the Emmys aired on. Well and truly over it. It’s probably a chore to them to even have to bother at all. I’m with you on the luncheon. .they’d probably do it at hometown buffet the JERKS.

Streaming offers a real-time accessibility that a television set cannot fully duplicate. Think of it as an evolution of what has been started off with radio.

If you watched last year’s Daytime Emmy’s, it’s anything but what you described. It was basically a live television broadcast except it was not shown on TV with the added plus of no commercial interruption even if it sucks that the awarding ceremony have no sponsors to offset the costs of production.

JAMES i tried to watch just like i tried when POP forever made up execs minds cable and network just aren’t viable for these shows. Explaining myself would be like trying to convince a MAGA enthusiast why TRUMP is ALL TYPES OF WRONG..YOU CAN’T. That being said EVERY cable and network drama ALL use the daytime story telling mode to prolong their existence in prime time TV. It’s a proven and written about fact. If ANY genre deserves respect it’s the hallowed halls of daytime. Relegating these awards to a steaming platform-albeit at the last possible moment no less-is wrong..stomach… Read more »

davlestev1: The UK has a TV viewing population that is a fraction of that of the US, and their daily soap operas air on both daytime and primetime, including soaps imported from Australia so more or less soaps across the pond have equal footing as primetime scripted shows and that is reflective on their award shows.

You can’t really compare two widely different TV markets.

Actually the Emmy Awards– well in fact most long running award shows started out as private industry awards– somewhere along the lines, some network suit realized there was money to be made by televising these industry awards and making them essentially a three hour commercial promoting networks or studios shows and films. So I totally agree, these industry awards, given for and by those who work within the same field should be private affairs– that includes all them, film, television, theater and music–

It’s a money losing proposition for whatever network would do it. The production costs and low ratings combine to make it not worthwhile for any network. Back in the day, all 3 networks had multiple shows to nominate. Nowadays, CBS would be the only one that might have a slight interest (with 2 soaps, 2 game shows and 1 talk show).

NATAS should make it available on their own website – unless FB and Tw are paying some production costs.

I understand that fans do not count and that this is a ” business”.

All three major networks has a soap opera. GH (ABC) DOOL (NBC) and CBS (Y&R and B &B).

Why don’t the 3 networks split the cost ?

I see that they are streaming on social media which I do not partake in so I guess I will miss this year 🙁
