48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: Photo Gallery and Acceptance Speeches

Photo: NATAS/CBS

Last night on the 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on CBS and streamed on Paramount+, viewers watched a hybrid-broadcast for the annual kudofest as the world is coming out of the coronavirus pandemic.

While the acceptance speeches, and presenters were pre-taped along with the previously seen red carpet footage, no one knew who the winners were till last night, because all of the nominees taped a speech.  The virtual ceremony combined remote presentations and remembrances, with host, Sheryl Underwood presiding over the ceremony on a soundstage and introducing presenters to the stage, as well.

Adam Sharp, President & CEO, NATAS said of the event on Friday night: “We honor the Daytime community for helping us find our way through the turbulence of the pandemic, increased racial unrest and the chaos of the presidential election as America faced one of its most trying years in our history. This evening celebrated not only the best programming and performances of this year but reflected on some of Daytime’s biggest icons that have left an indelible mark on our medium.”

Streaming service Netflix was actually the evening’s big overall winner with seven Emmys. NATAS had called this production and event a “transition” event after shooting much of it on a set, as they look to bring back the live event feel for next year, since the broadcast had already received a two-year commitment from CBS.

While the late Alex Trebek and Larry King were remembered and also won awards posthumously, Regis Philbin was also honored by his longtime co-host, Kathy Lee Gifford.  Then, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Diamond White (Paris) performed a song during the In-Memoriam segment.

You can check out some of the acceptance speeches from Daytime Drama winners: Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, B&B) Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH), Max Gail (Ex-Mike, GH), Marla Adams (Ex-Dina, Y&R), and Frank Valentini (EP, GH) below our photo gallery of some of the backstage moments that were captured during portions of the pre-taped ceremony.

the editing was subpar and made it seem like everything was predetermined. The speeches lacked the authenticity and surprise that comes with the opening of an envelope. This resulted in staid acceptance speeches (except a somewhat arrogant Maurice Bernard).

Grateful they were back on network tv – but they came across more like a People’s Choice Award presentation than an Emmy show.

Maurice knew he was going to win and that is the speech he prepared? Somehow he had to engage in humble bragging by letting the audience know the EP said he was the “ star of the show.” It gave me a whole new appreciation for Susan Lucci. When interviewers referred to her as the star of AMC, she’d stop them and assert that AMC is an ensemble cast with no one star. I guess she learned that wisdom from her mentor, Agnes Nixon. Frank Rich is no Agnes Nixon and MB lacks the class and humility of such actors… Read more »

Harry, you make such great points here. You were a bit more diplomatic than I was in my original comment (that is, if it made the cut). I especially like your compare and contrast of Lucci, Francis, and Nixon with the likes of Benard and Rich. I also must wonder how other GH actors, particularly Francis, must feel about Benard’s “star of the show” statement. I know I wouldn’t want to work with someone like that…

Steve and Harry…I was also disappointed in Maurice’s demeanour and speech when accepting his award. Especially compared to other recipients. Too Sonny C. In reality he only won it because he could piggy-back on the outstanding performance of Max Gail.

Now can you stop the bullshit !!! Maurice in no way said he was the star of the show so would you stop with the social media attacks on him!!! Maybe you might want to stop the madness I did not watch this I don’t watch the shows anymore have too much drama in my own life but please for the love of God stop attacking this man for crap!! Do I think he is a good actor I don’t know but he had his moments just let it go! I think he has a good soul and that’s ok… Read more »

I can not speak for anyone other than myself for the remarks made about Maurice being “the star” of GH. I was just doing a little needle work, which in hindsight , now seems insensitive. In good conscience though K, what you said about buying votes wasn’t nice either. I guess we have to think before we speak, huh?

Maurice Benard : opening line on “any” speech… is how humble he is it’s hard to believe that he, laura Wright, Chad Duell, and “Josselyn” don’t know that they always have that foot up and REEL far more than the rest of the cast… leaving every one else in supporting. once again, maurice benard won this emmy because of; Mr. Max Gail. it’s time for Maurice benard to think retirement.. however he is meant to fold back in to Port Charles… does he now have to fight his wife to get his empire back in order ? or has he… Read more »

I cannot say I do not like Maurice because I do not know him. However, I can say, I do not like Sonny. I do not like Carly. I do not like Michael. They act holier than thou while cheating or committing crimes. They wear many faces. I just get the feeling that these people are supposedly soap royalty? Well, sooner or later, they must come down their high horses and face the fact that they live in a make-believe world— Genie Francis is the true Queen, as far as I’m concerned. Again—-we do think alike—Victoria and Cady—-applause and then… Read more »

I agree. Seems like winners kniew ahead of time. But d/t circumstances in COVID times, they did the best they could. I am looking forward to hopefully a live one next year on CBS. I remember when the daytime emmys used to air in daytime.

I haven’t finished watching. I have about an hour left. Did the winners know in advance that they won? I enjoyed Diamond’s song. I wondered why they didn’t have more people comment on Larry and Regis when they had quite a few for Alex.

I did not like the host. I fast forwarded through a lot of her stuff.

Congratulations to the winners, especially Cady, Victoria, Jacqui, Marla. I only watch Y&R, B&B, and Days.

I’m glad it was on TV.

Okay, one more bite at the apple (because I can’t help myself)…

You know, when I first noticed this thread about the Emmy acceptance speeches, I became quite emotional, and I didn’t think I could write anything that would do the topic justice. But then Michael Fairman said to me, “Jamesj75, you’re the star of this website! We need you to write something that we can enjoy.”

Now James…
I’m fine with you being “the star” as long as I get to keep wearing black t shirts and jeans to work and get nominated in the lead category (although I always seem to be supporting you or Violet.)

Hope you’re enjoying your other life on the Pennsylvania side of the river.

O.k James, if you’re angling for another award, you got it, pull it in. Now we want that acceptance speech that WE deserve for these awards given you.
Also, thank you Steve for the nod, unless there’s some other old broad you were speaking of.

Violet, you are a sweetheart for playing along also! Putting a humorous spin on this situation is probably more productive than my initial (negative) remarks. And I won’t speak for our friend, Steve, but how could there be any other Violet?!?!?!

Come on James, you know she’s the 4th Violet. The 1st two later came back with other screen names. The 3rd couldn’t cut it and lasted just a few months.

Worst acceptance speech was Maurice Benard’s “star of the show” speech. Why can’t a show called General Hospital be about the hospital rather than this “lovable mobster” who everybody just adores because, Sonny is by far my least favorite character ever in daytime drama. My favorite speech was Marla Adams’s for Supporting Actress. Even though she didn’t know she had won she was nevertheless overjoyed and full of happiness! She started in daytime on The Secret Storm in 1966. I am so glad she was recognized for her superb performance as Dina on Y&R. Victoria Konefal and Cady McClain gave… Read more »

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
