Now its on a network…but thats better than how they have been the last few years!!!-Emmy Show would had been better showing clips from old soaps ect than that awful ABC special…that was the meteor that might have just killed the final four dinosoaps with Cohen hosting and promoting his reality shows ect.

Thanks to a global pandemic for bringing back a scaled down much cheaper version of Daytime Emmys to broadcast TV. If it weren’t so tragic I’d be LOL. Idiot’s at CBS.

So happy the nominees will be finally revealed! I know it will be a mix of great nominees and poor ones – I just wish we knew who submitted and who didn’t so I would be less disappointed if favorites simply didn’t submit. I hope my picks at least get nominations: Suzanne Rogers for Supporting Actress, Chandler Massey for Supporting Actor, Robin Strasser for Guest Performer, Garen Stitt for Younger Actor/Actress, Roger Howarth for Actor and Maura West for Actress – and Jon Lindstrom in whichever category. Paul Telfer would be a very happy choice if he were nominated for Supporting Actor! Camila Banus and Arianne Zucker, Genie Francis and Rebecca Herbst, Billy J Miller and Tamara Braun for Oscar’s death episodes… There are a few I expect to see who I don’t care for (particularly Maurice Benard) but that’s how it goes every year!

yeah, you’d think with just 4 serial… whomever this “magnanimous” PANEL; would be able to see , like the audience, credible TALENT… that the actors’ themselves would be excited. GOD all one has to do is watch youtube on the golden day when their were 10 to 15 serials to herald. GOD it was gut punch wrench and ROAR .

Alas, this bears mention… yeah, it’s laugh out loud best

it’s year 2017 when Scott Clifton AND Steve Burton WON ???? Panel of idiot
it’s year 2019 when wallah , Panel of “wherewithal”noted Maurice/dullard Sonny

really suspect AND question… thanks to Max Gail.

I turned General Hospital OFF . keeping up with; on this site and SOD tells me every thing one ought. NEW WRITERS PLEASE

re-reading your post… “Billy J Miller and Tamara Braun for Oscar’s death episodes” seems like so long ago

DAG! this is where the talent went… along with the disappearance of Britta… think about it… @GH REALLY holds you; still?

Great news, always a good, glamorous show. Soap stars deserve the recognition!

They’re doing it because they don’t have to put on a full out awards show. The presenters are at home as well as the nominees. Yeah. Glamour. LOL. It’s cheap gurl. Thus the broadcast.

no pre nom list ? no top 10 weaning to the real deals? who’s who ? bringing back the mystique ? network battle for top shelf

oh well… such as it is; the gold clutch of heightened awareness… ” I am A STaR ” has taken a backburner

yet I still have heart and heated chivalry’. n o t

COME ON NBC !!!!! Salem’ite PULL

What? Did hell freeze over while I was asleep? CBS and Daytime Emmy’s?

That is great news. Now let’s get a couple more soaps back on CBS full time.
