Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.

Check out the full winners circle list from last night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.

On the plus side General Hospital won 5 awards out of it’s 7 categories and it richly deserved them! I was also happy for John McCook and Ted King – not necessarily my first choices but all of those categories had terrific winners! But I have to vent about the ridiculous choice for Best Actress. Sigh. My problems with Mishael Morgan winning were many: there were 3 better choices from her own show – Sharon Case, Melissa Clare Egan and Camryn Grimes – were all WAY better than her in 2021; Amanda is NOT a lead character on Y&R; her… Read more »

Always negative. Be grateful GH was the biggest winner. You need to admit that you don’t like Mishael Morgan nor the CBS soaps. Be happy for once in a lifetime

Mishael is a good solid actress but she simply didn’t deserve to win this year – there were too many much more deserving actresses who ought to have been recognized for their work instead of her. I enjoyed her work as Hillary but her work as Amanda hasn’t been interesting to watch. I was happy with 7 of the 9 winners this year in the daytime drama categories.

Hi Richard! While I believe MM is a beautiful and talented actress when given the material, she just wasn’t on very much this past year. Basically, she was in the background holding Devin’s hand as he idiotically fought for shared custody of the Newman-Abbott-Winters-Chandler baby. So Ned less to say, her nomination and subsequent win was puzzling.

Give it a rest……………It’s just sad to see you so worked up over MM’s win when she deserved it. SHUT UP and move on. GH won the most and you can’t even be happy about that.

I agree on many of your points, Richard and I don’t find them “hateful” in the slightest. Yes, Mishael Morgan’s win was historic, dramatic, and important. But…and it’s a big one…Amanda Sinclair is in no way a leading character. How can she be leading when Devon, her primary scene partner, is a supporting role? Doesn’t jive even by their own rules. Yes, she’s a wonderful actress but fair is fair. Then…we should have clips from ALL the acting categories; I think most fans will agree on that. It definitely heightens the suspense. On the credit side, Kelly Thiebaud, Jeff Kober,… Read more »

Agreed, And I don’t “hate Mishael Morgan” at all – she was in the wrong category and there were too many other actresses more deserving, that’s my opinion – she won and maybe next year the winner will be more deserving.

As negative as you have been about her on your posts for quite a while, you do HATE MM……..so I think it’s time for you to admit it.

Soaphound! Well said! I agree on all counts. I can’t even recall what Amanda’s main story was this last year. But I do vividly recall how Sharon stalled Nicholas from giving her the news of what she already knew- that Rey had died. Brilliant and realistic portrayal. Jeff Kober is a mad genius at playing the overly sensitive villain who is a killer, but also easily gets his feelings hurt. Nicholas Chavez is such a unique and riveting actor. He reminds me a bit of Rudolph Valentino. Kelly Thiebaud is also a naturally gifted actor. I didn’t know the Daytime… Read more »

I remember what Amanda’s main story was last year, didn’t she help Devon take care ofthe baby when he came to visit, oh, and draw up the contract for he and Abby to be Co-parents.

Harry and Violet, I believe Amanda also had the unending, uninteresting story involving her grandfather being responsible for the death of her own father. Remember, at first she suspected Victor was involved, but was proven wrong. I think that was this voting year also. I try to force that story from my mind, like I did when I had chicken pox.

That it took until 2022 for a woman of color to win best lead actress is sad, especially with the great Debbi Morgan having so many good years at AMC (she did win a supporting award in the late 80s).

Wishful temporary stunt casting – Debbi as Portia’s mom on GH. Heck, they can resurrect her character, Ellen from the PC days if they choose. Imagine Debbi and Vernee Watson (Stella) getting into a verbal takedown- now that’s good soap.

So though ms Morgan wasn’t my first choice people think that gh has been robbed by cbs multiple times. I on the other hand am disappointed at always seeing the gh slant by no means whatsoever should gh have won best soap. The hospital fans are too funny they think there show should win every category so nice to see others get recognition and on a final note I hate I repeat hate the younger category all lumped into one

Well, my dreams of Carlivati being fired have gone up in smoke. Those other shows must be really bad if he is the best. Or Ron has, as my Dad used to say, “Pictures of the whole bloody affair”.

So…. my storyline really WAS a big hit after all! And look how fast things in Salem fell apart after I left.

The panelists vote based on TWO episodes only! Ron’s overall storyline arcs are poor writing but the panelists don’t actually watch the whole entire year. That is why GH can’t win in this category in my opinion – individual episodes really aren’t the point of GH’s writing, which is accumulative in its impact.

Some of us are called haters just because we don’t agree. We just have different opinions. M.M certainly did not deserve best actress. Those judges can’t judge, that’s for sure.M.M was far better when she played her other character. This time she’s just someone hanging off of Devon’s arm with nothing worthwhile coming out of her mouth. John McCook is great, have watched him so many years but to give him an award for E.D and then pimping out his wife to another man, it took something he didn’t have but wasn’t worth an Emmy. Like Richard, Iam very happy… Read more »

Hey Violet. I agree with you. While I think MM
is a stunning and talented actress, this year just wasn’t her year. All she did was hold Devon’s hand while he tried to lactate, er, I mean, while he fought for shared custody. Now she’s baby sitting her rather randy and bratty baby sister. She’s always on the sidelines of somebody else’s story. In my opinion, Sharon Case was the standout performer.

I was thrilled to be able to see everyone in one room again! Overall, I was very happy with the show. As a GH fan, I was over the moon with their wins! I was also happy to see John McCook finally win an Emmy. I don’t watch Y&R or B&B, but was glad to see the love spread around. Scratched my head when DAYS won for writing, but I’ve watched that show since I was in kindergarten. So, bully for DAYS. It was so nice to see Suzanne Rogers on stage. It’s a shame the teleprompter seemed to be… Read more »

Congrats to General Hospital as Best Daytime Drama! Kelly, Jeff, and Nicholas had a great year. Need Jeff Kober back on the show pronto. Should have got Writing to go with Directing. Surprised that Kimberlin Brown did not take Supporting Actress but she will easily win next year. Happy for John McCook after 35 years. Not aware of any DOOL or Y&R work.

Very happy for Mishael Morgan!
Now let’s up her story finally!
Bring back her mother and give her a meaty story that finally showcases her talent! Not like last year in which after building up her story Josh Griffith wrapped it up offscreen in his typical horrible anti clamatic story! Maybe get Diane to hire her privately which cause a rift between her and Phyliss!
While we’re at it can we finally be rid of Josh Griffith!? What’s taking Sony / CBS to hire a real headwriter!?

It was so wonderful to see a real Emmy telecast with everyone present in the same room for the first time in a long time, and back on broadcast TV. I thought it was a well produced show for the most part. No cheesy skits or unnecessary filler or BS like we’ve seen in years past. My only complaints were it would have been nice to see clips of the nominees in all the categories, particularly since NATAS no longer releases the Emmy reels to the public in advance of the show anymore, which I think is a great disservice… Read more »

I truly think actors and other nominees should make the effort to attend awards ceremonies when nominated. Jennifer Aniston could have appeared on video with her father if he couldn’t attend. Kelly Clarkson was a no show too. The viewers of these shows deserve that. The nominees certainly deserve their privacy but can fit in a major awards show.

Kelly Clarkson opted to be with her kids instead of being at the show, which was announced from the stage.

I wish John Aniston had been there, but it was great to see Suzanne.

Kevin and Nishcelle did a great job.

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.

Anne Heche in “Extremely Critical Condition”; Still in Coma Following Fiery Car Crash

Although earlier reports over the weekend had soap opera alum and Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) in stable condition following crashing her car into a home, on Monday an update on her condition looked more grim.

According to a statement provided to Deadline by Heche’s rep: “At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

Since last Friday, Heche has been hospitalized following a harrowing incident where she crashed her car which caught fire into a private home in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles.

In addition, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Annie Hernandez told City News Service that investigators obtained a warrant for a blood draw from Heche.

Over the last few days, a new episode of Heche’s podcast “Better Together” with her co-host Heather Duffy was released, which showed the actress slurring her speech.

Erroneous reports said that the podcast which dropped on Friday, was also recorded that day, and that Heche had been drinking prior to her accident during the show.  However, it has come to light that Heche taped that episode last Tuesday, not the day of the crash.

Share your thoughts and prayers for Anne as we continue to monitor and update the situation on the film and TV star, via the comment section below.

According to Los Angeles Fire Department Capt Erik Scott: “We had a significant traffic collision, we had entrapment of a woman inside that, we had car that erupted into fire, and then we had a home that had significant fire that is red tagged. It’s at this point destroyed.”

Heche is currently in a Los Angeles hospital, and had to be intubated following being severely burned.

Soaps fans know that Anne won a Daytime Emmy for her dual roles on Another World and played Vicky and Marley Hudson from 1987-2001.  She has also appeared in the films, Donnie Brasco, Six Days Seven Nights, Wag the Dog. and more.  On television, Heche has appeared in the last few years on: Dancing with the Stars, Quantico and Chicago P.D.

We will continue to monitor this developing story.
