It didnt play for me…Sami kidnapping baby Belle or going after Austin and with Lucas was some of my favorite Sami moments)…Meanwhile, i wanted Sami and Nicole to get in a big mud fight before Sami leaves(kind of like in that fight scene with grapes in ‘I Love Lucy’)…but when was the last time in ever rain in Salem to create some mud…did it even snow?

Fun interview. Paolo has an easy going and natural style. Thoughtful to present Alison with the award. Alison deserves all the kudos she gets. Going to MISS her on DOOL. Her book does seem like a fun summer read, too. 🙂

Watching DOOL this week, I couldn’t help but think why EJ Dimera would be attracted to or with Sami Brady. I understand that a lot of viewers consider EJami a supercouple; but, I just don’t see it. It’s nothing against the actress. I just find Sami to be very immature. I’m supposed to buy that she is a mother of 4, a grandmother of 1, in-charge of a successful business, while she is running around town like a teenager demanding Abigail help her with her wedding, fighting with Kate, and screaching the rest of the time?

She’s demanding Abby’s help in order to make Abby squirm. Sami knows about the affair!

Before I tuned in to DAYS, I actually got to meet her in person doing a post production gig for “The Biggest Loser about 5 years ago.

She is a sweet and charming woman..So then i watch her onscreen and its like WOW, who is this crazy girl, LOL.

She might not have many awards to show for, but she is a damn good actress who completely transforms when she plays Sammy..A daytime legend who will be sorely missed on the show!!

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

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.
