Tuesday morning, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced the nominees for the 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards broadcast which will be presented on Friday, June 25 (8:00- 10:00PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streamed on Paramount+.

More than forty categories will be given out during the broadcast and on social media. Of the forty announced: General Hospital lead the pack with 17 nominations, followed by Days of our Lives with 7, and then The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful with 5  each.

The Daytime Emmys have recognized outstanding achievement in daytime television programming since 1974.  The awards are presented to individuals and programs broadcast between 2:00 am and 6:00 pm, as well as certain categories of digital and syndicated programming of similar content.

 

This year’s awards honor content from more than 3,000 submissions that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020.  The submissions were judged by a pool of more than 1,000 peer professionals from across the television industry whose confidential ballots were then tabulated by the independent accounting firm of Lutz & Carr, LLP.

The upcoming June 25th telecast will mark the 15th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmys more than any other network.

And now… here are the nominees in the Daytime Drama categories. Congratulations to all and to all in the daytime genre for weathering the most challenging of years, and delivering content and episodes to fans and viewers around the U.S., and the world.

Why was Days of our lives shut out of best writing?? That is so shady!

The “re-imagined caragories for costume design, hair and makeup”. What a fucking joke. This is my last year dealing with the insults from the Emmys.

Question: What’s the definition of a “Guest Performer”?
Comment: “Days” did not get a writing nomination. Wow! That must be quite a blow to the writers on that show.

Great question, Scott. I was wondering that, too, myself. Check out my post and read my commentary about two TEMP RECASTS as “Guest Performers”? What? Must be a new thing.

Hi Jeremy! Great analysis of the acting categories you spotlighted. I used to watch “General Hospital,” “Days of Our Lives,” and “The Young and the Restless.” Watching three soaps just got to be too much, especially when so many storylines are just dull. It was easy to drop “Days” after Will and Sonny left the show. I didn’t care for any other character or story. “Y&R” just didn’t interest me anymore, and so today I am only left with watching “GH.” Having said that, I don’t tune in to “GH” every day. This may sound strange, but when I watch… Read more »

Hey Scott, thanks so much for your reply! I, too, miss Sonny & Will on DAYS. I had a dream recently, that the couple returned to Salem finally, but Sonny was recasted! I think it’s terrible that the Head Writer, and other writers, wrote this legendary couple off the show. I would like to see both original actors return. The writers made a big mistake by moving them off to Phoenix… of a places! And, how the hell is Gabby supposed to see her daughter and have joint custody when she clearly is bound to Salem? We need Will &… Read more »

Hi Jeremy! Yes, I have met James Patrick Stuart when he was a guest at one of the “Hollywood Shows” in Los Angeles. He was very friendly, and it was really nice to meet him. I live in Las Vegas, so I try to attend that autograph show whenever I can. Where do you call home? Max Gail has never done anything to me. LOL He is lovely, and he’s a very good actor. I just never got interested in that story. I started recording “Days” and “Y&R” again, but as the number of episodes of GH continues to grow… Read more »

Hey Scott, JPS sounds like a lovely fellow. And, I reside in Los Angeles. btw- if you stop with deleting DAYS from your DVR (LOL)… you’ll definitely get why myself and others feel very unsatified with the writing and storylines over at DAYS. I hope Ron’s DAYS are numbered but I doubt it. He and the show definitely did NOT deserve an Emmy Nomination for Ron and his writing crew. And, I was pleased that the Emmy judges didn’t recognise them. And, yes, EJ is returning (a recast), there’s a post about it on this website (LOL). He is scheduled… Read more »

I totally agree, Jeremy. I miss Will & Sonny too. What an egregious misuse of power letting them go. Not only was the story important and relevant, but these two had real chemistry. When Will would casually stroke Sonny’s hair and give him that naughty smile, my air conditioner would kick on!

Where is the Lead Actress Nomination for Amelia Heinle, and Lead Actor.for Peter Bergman, whose acting was superb, when his mother Dina Merger,whose passing last winter, on screen was the best work ever. At least they did recognize
Marla Adams, with a nod. They should just send her flowers and the Emmy in a box already…….she get my vote…….as always I think Eric Braeden should have been nominated this year and last year……he is the glue that holds the show together…….

B & B Actress is JMW and Matthew Atkinson are the best on that soap Emmy’s for both

Jamesj75
Guest
Jamesj75

Sorry to be negative, but…

Highway robbery: No Matthew Atkinson.

Laughable: Steve Burton’s one-note performance.

Tiresome: Maurice Benard’s storylines expressly tailor-made for such nominations.

Tiresome: Take 2: Max Gail — see above.

Tiresome: Take 3: Bryton James, every year, even when there is little storyline.

DOOL appropriate: Only soap NOT nominated in writing (for writing so, so bad). And it’s my regular, favorite soap.

Jeremy
Guest

Laughable is right! That’s what I thought, too. Would love to hear your commentary, James about some of the other acting categories. You mentioned you watch DAYS a lot, how did you feel about their questionable nominees… and, how did you feel about GH and their 17 nominations? Better yet, take a look at my post and what I have to offer… I was quite critical/negative, myself. Look forward to hearing from you.

Hey Jeremy! Thanks for the backup! By now, you’ve probably seen my other reply after your category-by-category analysis. But I did realize I forgot to more directly address your questions for me. So I am pleased with the nominations for Tamara Braun and Wally Kurth. I like Victoria Konefal, too, but just how “young” is she?!?! (I know I can google it, as well as the age range for the category, but you get my point.) As for the “Guest Performer” category — and I appreciate your discussion of said category — glad to see three DOOL nominees there. I… Read more »

Hi James, I am definitely rooting for Cady McClain for a win as Jennifer Horton, DAYS. I hope DAYS/NBC sees that this Emmy-nominated actress is a pure gem and I hope we see Jennifer return to Jack and Salem real soon. But, sadly… it will probably be when Abigail returns.

“right’ outa the gate : ^^^^ “Highway robbery: No Matthew Atkinson. ”

he mesmerizes ! i don’t think @B&B has seen any thing like it. at least in a very long time. I posted, i wish , had he been about 5-10 years older… he would have been the PERFECT @EJ @DAYS of OUR Lives. DANG IT !!!!

BOFFO performance by this MAN

Hey Patrick! Great to see you here! Thank you for the backing. I appreciate your expanding on Atkinson. His acting was remarkable. And he would be a great EJ! Cheers!

Jamesj75, I completely agree with your assessment and would only add that DZ’s nomination as Dante must be a colossal joke on us. He’s a supporting role at best and had nothing remarkable this year. Meanwhile the gorgeous and brilliant Matthew Atkinson is passed over again. Not to mention Mark Grossman as the wily, complex Adam Newman, certainly a more challenging role than the catatonic Jason Morgan. This category is very suspect to me.

Lead Actress got the nominees right. If the GH nominees cancel each other out, JMW will win. Quality-wise, Genie Francis deserves the award. Lead Actor. DZ, seriously? Back on the show for 5 months,? Not really driving story. Heck, Dante couldn’t even complete his one mission. DZ is good actor, but Dante is definitely a supporting character. Great to see Wally nominated in lead, although Ned is definitely his stronger role. Supporting Actress – where in the world is Lisa LoCicero and Kathleen Gati? Love every time we see Carolyn Hennessy, but what meaty material did Diane have over Olivia… Read more »

Hi Steve, Yes, I am feeling quite fine with the nominees for Lead Actress, and am definitely rooting for Genie Francis for the Win. Yeah, in my post, I, too, noted DZ’s nomination for Lead Actor as Dante (GH)… makes NO sense. I agree, he’s totally been a supporting player since his return. However, I was shocked that Wally Kurth (Justin) was nominated for Lead Actor, he’s totally Supporting, half-time on DAYS and half-time on GH and Justin is just a bore – dating Bonnie Lockheart!!! And, working occasionally as a lawyer. Like you said, as Ned on GH, he… Read more »

I hope , the panel of voters… recall all the brouhaha of Cady McClain, even daring, to assume Melissa Reeves’ role’ Jennifer Horton. it was so effortless, and she brought so much personality, moxie, and just a delight to see her laugh, mixing it up w/ other cast mates… AND gave her co-star matthew Ashford , some of his best stuff… WHAT A MAN, who knew? I truly hope , w/the two year renewal… that Cady McClain MUST RETURN. EMMY HER

It’s insane that GH has more than twice the number of nominations than all 3 of the other shows combined! 16 acting nominations for GH, 6 for Days, and 4 each for B&B and Y&R. I am rooting for GH to win for Series, Directing, writing, Actress (Francis or Grahn), Supporting Actor (Stuart); Days to win Actor (Kurth), Younger Performer (Konefal), and Guest Performer (McClain); and Y&R to win for Supporting Actress (Adams). But I am predicting Benard and Gail to repeat their 2018 wins this year, which I don’t agree with at all. The new nominating system benefited GH… Read more »

two NODS (salute) 1. Wally Kurth. has shared that @DAYS will always hold that special part in his daytime tenure. AND not to misunderstand, Wally Kurth, (DAG ! i love him, i put him in the marriage material category and leave it at that) has proven what a quality guy his talent REELS respectively for ALL the fans . I’m ecstatic that his work with the death scenes of his supercouple wife, Adriene , is acknowledged. two huge shows, two huge parts, @GH Quartermaine’ – @DAYS Kiriakis. how does one guy , sexy guy, top shelf YEP – he does… Read more »

Full disclosure: I watch Days Of Our Lives and General Hospital only. So, naturally, I favour those soaps. I have to say, it is IMPRESSIVE that GH received 17 nominations!!!! 17!!!! Followed by DAYS with 7, and the both CBS soaps, 5 each respectively. In my opinion some of the DAYS nominations are questionable because of horrific writing and story-telling. I didn’t expect DAYS to have much nominations, I think the DAYS nominations for acting awards are questionable. I’ll detail with each category that I will be commenting on.

I’m hoping for a GH sweep and yes I’m being bias, lol, but to answer your question regarding Lisa LoCicero as Olivia being robbed, as much as I love everyone on GH, that’s how big of a fan I am, I don’t think she was robbed, while acting is subjective, I find her performance way over the top, even in situations that don’t warrant being over the top over, she’s a little extra if you ask me, and come on the character has lived in Port Charles for ever, she should have a pc accent, not Brooklyn accent, lol, I’m… Read more »

Jeremy, what great and thorough analysis! Kudos to you for taking the time to expand on these particular categories. You make a lot of great points, and I can’t really disagree with any of them. Thanks for asking about my further input as well, which follows: I am a huge Genie Francis fan. Even though at times I liked Anthony Geary, I was resentful when he kept getting nominated for, and winning, Emmys, while Genie was largely ignored. And don’t get me started on how, over the years, she was shabbily treated by TPTB at GH, in stark contrast to… Read more »

Great analysis Jeremy. One thing for everyone to keep in mind is the Daytime Emmy nomination period is on a calendar year. Basically, anything that happened after Jan 1 will be considered for next year’s nominations.

Disappointed not see Sharon Case, Maura West, Peter Bergman, and Beth Maitland among nominees… but hooray for some who did make the list: Genie Francis, Marla Adams, Courtney Hope, and Carolyn Hennessy. Interesting that DOOL received no writing nomination.

I’m definitely rooting for Courtney Hope formerly of the B&B and now with The Young and the Restless. She is terrific and a great character actress. From what I have seen of her performances she could do anything she put her mind to. Love this actress ❤️

Kara…I really like Courtney, too. I think she got royally screwed in B&B by Diamond Bill. Don’t like how Y&R is setting her up now as the possible bad girl. It was kinda fun seeing her talk with her Grandma for encouragement , the way she used to when she was the blooming designer, Sally Spectra. That’s who I want to see again.

Michael Teale

I can’t say I’m surprised by the lack of noms for Y&R and B&B. Both shows were horrible this past year. The only nom that didn’t happen was Matthew Atkinson of B&B for playing Thomas’ brain injury so superbly. Perhaps the industry was punishing both shows for not getting back to pre-covid type scenes quicker than the other two shows. B&B was the laughingstock of the industry with them using mannequins in scenes for kissing and hugging.

I’m very happy with all the GH nominations. Genie Francis, Finola Hughes and Nancy Lee Grahn are all very deserving in the Lead Actress category. I’m pulling for Genie, with Finola a close second. It’s been 14 years since her last win for Genie, 30 years for Finola, either ladies winning would be a great story and long overdue. Always glad to see Maurice Benard make the list. He got to show a different side of his acting range in the Alzheimer’s story, and deserves any accolades thrown his way. He won in 2019 which is why he may not… Read more »

‘Ryan’s Hope’ Star and Soap Vet, John Gabriel Has Passed Away at 90

Heartbreaking news Monday morning and to start the week. Beloved Ryan’s Hope soap veteran, John Gabriel (Ex-Dr. Seneca Beaulac) has died.

His daughter, actress Andrea Gabriel (Lost) shared the news of his passing via her Instagram account.

In her statement, Andrea shared: “It is with an unspeakably heavy heart that I share the news of my father’s passing.  John Gabriel was my hero, my role model, and my champion, but above all, my daddy… I will love you forever.”

Gabriel’s run on Ryan’s Hope was in two parts.  He started with the ABC daytime drama series in 1975 and stayed till 1985.  He then returned from 1988 to 1989.  Seneca’s love story with Jillian Coleridge (the late Nancy Addison Altman) was often front and center on the series.

As soap fans know, John was married to another former soap star, Sandy Gabriel (Ex-Edna Thornton, All My Children and  Ex-Christine Venet Ryan’s Hope), and is also survived by his other daughter Melissa and their two grandsons.

Throughout his daytime soap career, Gabriel received one Daytime Emmy nomination back in 1980.  He also appeared in roles on General Hospital, Loving, The Bold and the Beautiful, Generations and Days of our Lives.

Photo: ABC

In primetime he was known for his roles on Gilligan’s Island, Mary Tyler Moore Show.  John was also an accomplished singer performing on many variety and talk show through the years.

In 1995, Gabriel produced the late Charles Grodin’s talk show Charles Grodin for CNBC.

No official cause of death for Gabriel was revealed, and no memorial plans as of this moment.
