Got to hand it to All My Children’s Vincent Irizarry (David Hayward)!  Over the last 24 hour, Irizarry took to his facebook page to recommend and urge fans and colleagues to submit the name of legendary All My Children and One Life to Live creator Agnes Nixon to become a Kennedy Center Honoree!

Irizarry posted: “Please read, everyone, regarding Agnes Nixon! Someone sent me this link this morning on Twitter to submit a recommendation for the next Kennedy Center Honors, awarded by the President each year to those who have committed their lives in excellence for the arts. Last year’s honorees were Dustin Hoffman, Led Zeppelin, David Letterman, Buddy Guy, and Natalia Makarova. I’ve already submitted my choice for AGNES NIXON, truly one of the great storytellers of our time, and pioneer of broadcasting in television, who has recently transitioned successfully, once again as a pioneer, from TV to New Media with the new incarnations of both  All My Children & One Life to Live for the internet. Join me in supporting our great national treasure, Agnes Nixon, by submitting your own recommendation for her to receive this illustrious honor. This could be our collective thank you to Ms. Nixon for all the years of joy she has brought to countless millions of us; throughout the many generations. Very few could possibly deserve it more!”

So how cool would that be for soap operas?  If you want to join in the recommendations to the Kennedy Center Honors for Agnes click here!

I agree, We don’t need any negativity here, It is about Agnus.

Does your comment have anything to do with what they are talking about here? No it doesn’t. So what’s the point? This article is about Agnes Nixon .

We soap fans waited so long to get our soaps back! I totally disagree with johnny’s
negative comments!

Johnny

Just so people know, I am not the same “Johnny” as the “johnny” that wrote the above comment – I do think the shows need some work but I would never phrase it as the above person did nor would I tell an established actor he needs to “look for another job”. I often post on here and I do comment that the shows could be improved (writing wise) and with more familiar faces in Pine Valley but I think for the most part I try to comment politely.

Rodd

Go find something else to do with your half-hour if you don’t like these shows! And please take your hateful words with you. Agnes Nixon and the others who are trying to navigate this new medium need our encouragement and understanding as they hit new highs and low, get things right and make mistakes. I am happy to support them!
And by the way…I made my recommendation of Ms. Nixon with glee. It was easy to do and she is SO deserving.

rodd you are a bully. anyone can voice there say here. if you dont like it. keep your mouth shut or dont come on this site.

Rodd
Rodd

david, nothing I said was “bullying”. It was a mere suggestion for someone making what I thought was a very negative comment about a wonderful person. Can’t see one “bullying” thing in what I wrote. However, I will not continue to justify my remarks to you in light of the tone of your words. I will simply suggest you think about what you wrote and then consider its tone. Good day.

I fully agree with you. It seems some people’s parents never taught them to only say something nice or don’t say anything at all. This is supposed to be a positive article about a great lady who brought us our soaps (that I’ve enjoyed literally my whole life) and people feel the need to get nasty. What purpose does that serve? If they don’t like the show, they don’t have to watch. But they should keep their negativity to themselves, and leave us real fans to support our shows and the people behind them.

Great honor for a real pioneer, from radio, to tv to the Internet. Thank you for the suggestion Vincent. Done!

This is the kind of man Vincent is. He is as warm, friendly, sincere and good-natured as he is talented. I love his idea and I’ve already submitted my recommendation.

We (the fans of AMC) would like to view the full five days of shows and please keep the language to a minimum say at the PG-13 level. We do not want it to go into the Rated R mode. Thank you.

su0000
su0000

”we” speak for yourself, only.. I’s be ok with it.
AMC is nowhere near a R rating, no worries, doubt they ever will be…..
There is no PG-13 rating on the internet, those ratings are not on the internet programming because there is no censoring on the internet..
You’d best stick to I Love Lucy, there you will find your happy place 🙂
The internet soaps are not for everyone, they reality cuss!!!
{{ maybe someone will get naked!! /wishful thinking..

Antone
Antone

I didn’t say AMC is Rated R! I just don’t want it to get at that point! You follow me??????? Ok..Sherlock… I’m trying to submit feedback here… The little words they use NOW are fine with me..that is considered PG-13!– even though you said there is no PG-13 on the internet!) Obviously, you sound very immature and I doubt it if anyone will get naked on the soaps because that would be considered porn!
In general, I like AMC just as it is right now.. I don’t want it to get worse with the harsh language AND mind you, I am speaking for EVERYONE!

Michelle
Michelle

Please speak only for yourself. The language makes this much more realistic and it’s not excessive, I would love five days, but I’ll take any days I can get, 38 years of being an AMC fan!

So annoying when people go off topic from the article posted. Your comment has nothing to do with what the article is talking about. This is about Agnes Nixon and whether she should be nominated.

Vincent you are such a warm hearted person and so is Agnus, I have put my recommendation for her already. I love the shows no matter where I would have to watch them, have watched them with my mom for all of my life. Even though she is no longer here I still watch them and getting my kids into them. They are wonderful. The new shows aren’t bad they just need to tone them down a little with words but yes that is the way things are today going down hill with kids not watching their behavior so it’s not just the show.

Cheryl

I voted for Agnes. She deserves to be recognized for her outstanding contribution to television and continuous years of service and hard work.

As a loyal Canadian viewer I think Agnes Nixon very deserving of such accolades.
Unfortunately little brother (we Canadians) don’t carry any weight when it comes to such things.

I continue to watch two fabulous shows since their inception ( over 40 yrs.), and the wonderful job you and your fellow actors do is apparent . I have nominated Agnes Nixon as well. I will take as many episodes of OLTL and AMC that I can get on any device it is available. Thank you Vincent and cast for great programing !

I agree Agnes is an amazing writer but I think Vincent knows he needs help from Susan Lucci for this. I also am worried, i have a bad feeling AMC might not make it and even more suspcious that Susan Lucci and her husband have a bad feeling AMC is not being run well and will be cancelled. Lucci is usually very business savvy. Prospect Park quit negotiations with ehr befor and it appears it was not money. I am wondering if Lucci doesn`t want to back a questionable deal or show. I think she is loyal to AMC but is worried about how it is being handled not to mention she has Devious Maids and Deadly Affairs.

OLTLfan

To be honest, I’ve watched the show my whole life, and I haven’t missed Erica Kane for even a second since the reboot. I never really liked her to begin with, but I honestly believe the show is fine without Susan Lucci bringing that “diva” quality to it.

They won’t go for it. Soaps are looked down upon by the elitist organizations, especially any pertaining to the cultural life.

It would be nice for someone from soaps to get such an honor. Don’t know what the requirements are.

People need to stay on topic, this is about Agnes Nixon not canceling All My Children. Vincent is such a sweetheart, so unlike Hayward..:-) I submitted my nomination.

jewell agnes nixon is a witch,cant stand her, she needs to go away and retire. agnes is getting senile just like you. all my children will be cancelled soon. anyone can voice there opinions here. the storylines and the writing is horrible. enjoy watching all my children for now. it will be just a memory like agnes nixon.

Submitted yesterday. Thanks for the article leading to the opportunity to submit. Keep the faith about te shows people.

I just sent in a recommendation for Agnes..she truly deserves it

Darlene Ford

Done! Here’s what I submitted:

Agnes Nixon is a true — the ULTIMATE — Daytime Heroine. First, she refined & defined the soap genre, then she virtually single-handedly ‘rode to the rescue’ — doing what even OPRAH said was impossible — and, in true soap form, brought them ‘back from the dead’!

OLTLfan
OLTLfan

I submitted my recommendation! I told them how Agnes has brought happiness and a sense of family to many generations, and she is very deserving of being honored for her talent and dedication.

He’d be better off nominating Susan Lucci instead.She’s more world famous.

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.

Y&R, AMC and GL Alum, Jeff Branson Featured In New AppleTV+ Drama, ‘For All Mankind’

Daytime Emmy winner, Jeff Branson is featured in a new drama coming your way on the new AppleTV+ platform.  Branson takes on the role of famous astronaut Neil Armstrong in For All Mankind.

At the epicenter of the story is NASA and the Soviet space program as they square off in the space race of the 1970s.  But this has a twist, America has lost the race and tensions boil over between the two nations.

The main focus in the series is the lives of the astronauts and the personal and professional relationships they encounter. For All Mankind presents an aspirational world where NASA and the space program remained a priority and a focal point of our hopes and dreams.

Branson is fondly remembered in soapland for his performances as Ronan Malloy on The Young and the Restless, Jonathan Randall on All My Children, and Shayne Lewis on Guiding Light.

For All Mankind is created by Emmy Award winner Ronald D. Moore (Outlander, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica), Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi.

In addition to Branson the cast includes: Joel Kinnaman, Michael Dorman, Wrenn Schmidt, Shantel VanSanten, Sarah Jones and Jodi Balfour. General Hospital’s Jason David (Aiden Spencer) also appears in the series.
