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!

Now let us know, do you agree with Vincent that Agnes should be inducted into this elite group of individuals who have contributed so much to our culture and entertainment?  Share your thoughts!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

”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..

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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

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.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
