They are certainly dignified people to have as the hosts, but I still would have preferred actors from our soaps. I hope they make up for this by having a ton of soap actors as presenters and not “celebrities” from outside the soap medium….And I don’t wish to disenfranchise the people from other daytime shows, since this IS the Daytime Emmys, but I only watch for the soap stars. JMHO.

This item isn’t about the Daytime Emmy show that will televised– this item is about a separate show for people behind the scenes, like lighting, make up, set decoration, camera operations, etc. I don’t think they have announced the hosts for the televised show for acting, best show etc. I am sure that show will have soap stars are presenters etc, as well as other daytime personalities.

Gotcha. My eye sight isn’t so good and I completely missed the words “creative arts”. That’s for pointing that out Mary SF.

Interesting. Now, all we have to wonder about is whether or not they’ll name a daytime drama star(s) as the host of the Emmy Awards in April.

I love Erika Slezak too Jim, I agree Erika and Bob Woods should host the emmys. I want Erika back in daytime. Cast Erika on The Bold and The beautiful as Erics new girlfriend, that would work for me.

I want Bruce Jenner to host the emmys. LOL. That would create drama, and have Kathy Griffin make fun of The Kardashians. I loved Kathy Griffin hosting the emmys last year. She was hilarious.

Judith McConell would make a great Dina Abbot—she is a fine actress and a vet of many soaps!!!

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales.
