46th Daytime Emmys: Y&R Takes Drama Series; GH’s Maurice Benard & B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Top Acting Honors

Sunday night at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys, it was The Young and the Restless and General Hospital that were the big winners overall in major categories as the gold was handed out in ceremonies that were streamed online and  via social media live from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California as presented by NATAS.

The Young and the Restless took home the Daytime Emmy in the three major show categories, a trend that was started last year by Days of our Lives when they did the same thing in the drama series, writing and directing categories.  For last night, Y&R (under ousted EP and head writer Mal Young’s work) won in the same categories.  Y&R won on the strength of their submissions which centered around the night J.T. was “murdered” by Nikki after his confrontation with Victoria, and episodes surrounding the Abbott family drama, where Ashley dupes Jack into believing he is not John Abbott’s biological son as part of her revenge plot.

In the major performer categories, it was mostly a golden night for the town of Port Charles led by Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, Maurice Benard (Sonny), who finally won his 2nd Emmy.  The last time Benard won for his work was 15 years ago, when the show was held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Benard’s castmate and scene partner, Max Gail (Mike) took home the prize for Outstanding Supporting Actor, while Vernee Watson (Stella) did the same in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category.   Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki), who had left GH, for PPL: The Perfectionists, won in the Outstanding Younger Actress category.  In addition, Patricia Bethune took home the prize for her work as Nurse Mary Pat in the Outstanding Guest Performer category,.

The Lead Actress category was won by new mom, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood for her portrayal of Steffy Forresster on The Bold and the Beautiful, while the Younger Actor winner was Days of our Lives’ Kyler Pettis for his role as Theo Carver.  Pettis won for his exit scenes from the NBC soap opera.

Some were ok but some others my gosh i see why im bored with award shows…Max Gail was great in the beginning but his story began to take a nose dive in the last few weeks…GH has its ups and downs as does Days…cant we have more commonplace stories instead of all the gloom and doom in almost every episodes!!!!

When they shipped Mike off to a full care facility I knew he would disappear. What a shame. I thought he would be back for Mays sweeps but they are focusing on Oscar. Oh well.

Sorry Jim, I can totally understand why you would tune out. We tune IN to soaps to escape. When you yourself experience something horrible in your own life, my God, do soaps matter?

I am happy that Y&R won Drama Series, Writing and Directing. When the show was announced as the Drama Series Emmy winner, I can easily tell that much of the cast and the current head writer Josh Griffith and current EP Anthony Morina were extremely uncomfortable being up there with Mal Young. It was awkwardness on full display. The only thing that I’m not happy about is the fact that Thad Luckinbill (ex-JT) and Amelia Heinle (Victoria) were not nominated at all for their work in the domestic abuse storyline. That was an utter travesty and joke. By far, the… Read more »

When award shows are televised they have what they call ‘seat fillers’– most award shows people are going to the bathroom, the bar, hanging out with friends in the lobby, leaving early to go celebrate or drown their disappointment after their category was announced– only difference when televised seat fillers give the impression everyone sticks around for the whole show. What you saw was the real reality of these events.

The positive or take away from Y&R winning under Mr. Mal Young…CBS and Josh and company all need to stop and ponder…the vets were driving the story in the submissions. Who was acting up a storm? The people we had invested for years and a connection with. The winning stories were not around his new creations or characters. Story, story, story. Make us care, make us laugh, make us cry. All good CBS/Y&R. Keep it up. DO BETTER. Congratulations.

I’m stunned that Y&R won Outstanding Drama Series, Writing & Directing. Mal Young’s tenure was a train-wreck, and if the actual quality of the show was assessed for these award shows, there’s no way it would have won. While there were some standout episodes, like Hilary’s death and the ones submitted, the rest of the year failed to live up to what Y&R could be under strong leadership. As for the winners, I really thought this would be Peter Bergman’s year. He’s almost always a nominee, but rarely a winner. Billy Flynn also did amazing work this year, and deserves… Read more »

Tried to watch on FB, but it wanted me to login, create a password or something and I didn’t want to do that. Disappointed I couldn’t watch.

Surprised Days didn’t win much. Congrats to Kyler.

Congratulations to Jacqui!!!

A little surprised Y&R won for best show, but those episodes were good. It’s not on the basis of a whole year.

Maurice Benard , does not, deserve, this win he road on the coattails of Max Grand. Period he said himself at his acceptance speech … he didn’t think he stood a chance. even I posted in a thread that his 5th spot belong to Drake Hogestyn for @Days. he shared how he wrapped his 20 minute reel with the duet he and “dear” old Dad were shown from the Nurses Ball, sharing a song and dance. As I’ve posted Altzheimers has a life of it’s own…. and this was a given that this subject matter would forefront any other material.… Read more »

Y&R has a good track record of picking the one or two good moments it had in a year and submitting them– if the panel had to watch the rest of the episode after Nikki knocked JT on the head or endure the tedious year of finishing the story line, they might have thought better of it. There was a reason why they fired Mal. I found most of the acting wins surprising except for Max Gail, but since the Academy didn’t release the nominees’ reels this year I am uncertain what scenes they “won” for– all the nominees are… Read more »

Well, I’m sure all the “Sonny Haters” will jump all over his win BUT, he had some good material this past year with Max Gail. They both won and I’m cool with that. Younger actress should have gone to Chloe Lanier. She was really good. BUT, we kept it in the family and Haley won! She was good as Kiki. Young actor? Well, its a year to early. Next year Oscar [Twin brother] or Cameron will bring the gold to GH! My main gripe is for female supporting actress. WTF! Vernee Watson? I was shocked she won last year and… Read more »

I have been an on and off viewer of The Bold and the Beautiful since the first episode. With that said, although I am not thrilled with the Hope storyline, I think Annika Noelle should have gotten some kind of nod for her hospital scenes when she was holding what she thought and still thinks was her baby. To be truthful, I wasn’t thrilled with her in the beginning, (not her personally, I just hate breaking in recasts). But those crying scenes she had, had me crying right along with her. With that being said, I just wish they would… Read more »

What I don’t get is how these writers can put such trash into these actor’s mouths. Yes, they have definitely made Thomas into a psycho. To stand right there and tell another man, why he should have his wife. It’s ludicrous, to say the least. I can hardly stand watching this junk anymore.

Nice to see some vindication for Mal Young. I so wanted Beth Maitland to win, though. She was outstanding this year.

I agree with you sonniorsolita. I have been watching Y&R on and off since 1984, and I have been a Traci fan since her cat fighting days with Lauren over Danny. Beth Maitland really stepped up to the plate this year, between trying to hold the family together, during Jack and Ashley”s fighting, not to mention having her sick mother thinking she’s hired help, to her compassionate talks with Came about his divorce. She showed all sides. She deserved recognition for a job well done. Thanks for listening and happy viewing

Good news– it looks like they are going to pair Beth’s Traci with Cane– so more screen time for her– Bad news– they are pairing Traci with Cane- one of my less favorite characters–but it is about time they give her own story again, so if it has to be with Cane so be it- Traci with Cane is better than no Beth at all.

What do you think of Traci and Cane as a couple? Do you think this is where this is leading? I might me able to get used to it, I don’t know yet. Are Lauren and Jack overly friendly, or is it my imagination? Michael is hardly around anymore. What did you think of the young middle school looking boy that Kyle and Summer met with in NY, now coming to GC, for Summer??

A couple of things that I thought was interesting: 1. The crowd was, to put it kindly, sparse. Half the seats appeared to be empty. 2. The number of Y&R actors who were not there was glaring. AWOL: Eric Braeden; Melody Thomas Scott; Lauralee Bell; Eileen Davidson; Tracey Bregman; Amelia Heinle (who was very prominent in the nominated clip); Josh Morrow; Sharon Case. Has this award show fallen that far? First, it can’t find a network to broadcast it. Now, it can’t even get a large turnout from those it employs. I think it is time for those in charge… Read more »

What a wonderful night for GH, winning 5 of 7 acting awards! Max Gail winning was the highlight for me, and it was so well deserved. The way he portrayed the progression of Alzheimer’s from the beginning to now with Mike away at the retirement home was an acting master class. I haven’t been this thrilled to see someone win an Emmy since Genie Francis finally won her first in 2007. I was very happy to see Maurice Benard back in the win column after 16 years. It was long overdue. I honestly thought Jon Lindstrom would win, but Maurice… Read more »

After all of the ‘bad press and internet babble from every so called insider” Y&R wins in the major categories, Writing, Directing, Drama Series, slated and shut down the noise and chatter, their talented actors, despite their omission in Outstanding Actress-Lead and Supporting, and Younger, was an insult, DOOL, and GH, has a revolving door of people,so many new faces playing to the camera, you never know who is no on that show, they all “look” and “sound” alike, too much “young love chatter” is simply not working…….I still despise GH, because they took the business model of”profession who shakes… Read more »
