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!!!

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
