Prospect Park’s online revivals of All My Children and One Life to Live are throwing their hats into the ring in a big way for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy competition.

NATAS Senior Director Daytime Emmy Awards, David Michaels, spoke with TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan about how this years race is going to be very exciting.

Michaels stated, “Our entry deadline was last Friday, Jan. 17, and we’ve had a lot of great submissions from AMC and OLTL — in fact, we’ve set an extreme record for the number of entries this year.  From the look of Prospect Park’s submissions, I think they’ll give the four network soaps a real run for their money when it comes to production values and the quality of the writing, directing and acting.”

In addition Michaels pointed out,  “several stars who chose not to submit themselves in recent years have decided to get back into the game — so the more the merrier! Between that, and the enthusiasm from AMC and OLTL, this has the makings of a real horse race.”

So who would you like to see get a nomination from One Life to Live or All My Children? Let us know!

Four soaps are on TV, Emmy value is kind of a joke. So they are playing up web soaps to make it seem more important. The award show might not be on TV anymore so few people will even know who wins. I believe each network voter will vote for their own people. Soaps are endangered and everyone is fighting to survive a few more years.

If Kelley Missal didn’t submit I’ll be pissed.

I’m very glad to hear this. I can’t take the Emmys seriously when each network show has a 25% chance of winning for Best Daytime Drama, and when the competition is whittled down to nothing. All awards shows are popularity contests, to some extent, and people win because they deserve to and because of other reasons, too, but back when there were 6, 7, 8 or more daytime dramas on, at least there was some competition. Now it’s almost comical. But if AMC and OLTL submit episodes and actors for their work, some of which was quite good, IMO, then… Read more »

Anything is possible but I think either AMC or OLTL winning Emmys is a long-shot with most voters being in television production.

Without a doubt…Debbi Morgan, Darnell Williams, and Sal Stowers! Hope Debbi reconsidered and entered. Eric Nelsen and Denyse Tontz also deserve it.

I did not watch the reboots, but always thought Julia Barr and Erica Slezak were amazing. I think this year’s Lead Actress should be Kimberly McCullough, Eileen Davidson, Maura West, Alison Sweeney and Melissa Claire Egan. I also hope the Emmy’s reward Ari Zucker and James Scott.

Finola Hughes did some amazing work, too, in 2013; especially her Obrecht-does-Anna turn opposite Faison.

yes, she should be in there, I am not sure Maura or Kimberly could be considered lead this year. Besides, they barely show some characters they all seem supporting now.

I wish they would make up their minds, either reboot both shows or cancel them. This back and forth is like a bad soap opera relationship.

I am glad to see that these actors have another chance at some Emmy glory. These actors have been through more than most actors in the last 3 years, starting with the first round of cancellations, then the disappointment of Prospect Park’s first attempt to launch, then the relaunches, then the next cancellations. they uprooted their lives, many from LA and New York, in an attempt to be a part of something groundbreaking. I may be naive or just overly hopeful, but I don’t think these shows are totally done. I don’t what the next forum swould be, (ABC, Online,… Read more »

I think that JEFF KWATINETZ will win for “most likely to sue”.

It seems odd that Prospect Park would go through the trouble of re-launching these two iconic soaps, which (although many disagree with me) I did not feel were terribly compelling as on-line presentations. It’s horrendous how non-communicative they were with the fans and now we are expected to praise what they did. However, this is not to discredit in any way the actors who clearly did their level best to breathe life into some pretty lackluster scripts. I think Sal Stowers turned in some strong performances, and Jill Larson as Opal on AMC did very well. On One Life to… Read more »

I would rather have my OLTL back on network tv or online than to care about emmy nominations for a daytime emmy show that currently doesn’t have a home to be broadcasted. I hope some cast members get nominated and win, but I honestly would trade that in to see it in production again.

I would love for Erika Slezak to win her seventh Emmy but let’s be real here, the Emmy panel are always obsessed with GENERAL HOSPITAL and to a degree, YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS and I don’t think this year will be any different.

There will probably be a total of two or three acting nominations at the most from ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE.

How can you write that the Emmy’s are obsessed w/GH when you have “Erika Slezak has 7 Emmys” in the same sentence? SEVEN! I think it’s pretty obvious who the Emmys are obsessed with by that simple fact. FYI, after Candice Bergen won her 5th Emmy for playing MURPHY BROWN, she declined to submit herself in the category any longer saying 5 was plenty.

Joshua

I see your point, Kansas

But that’s the thing: the Emmy panel, when being generous to “One Life to Live” was only generous to Slezak (and gave Hillary B. Smith and Robert S. Woods nominations at times). Other than 1994, OLTL never has dominated the Emmys the same way “General Hospital” and “Young and the Restless” has been doing for the past 15 years or so, every year.

Based on an item posted on this site about a month ago, we know one person from these shows who won’t be submitting: Debbie Morgan. I recall her commenting that she won’t be submitting her name for her work on the new AMC as she felt it simply was time to close that chapter and to move on. I don’t know if she has had a change of heart since that. After all of the ups and downs of the Prospect Park venture, I can’t say that I blame her and would feel the same way.

I am a total AMC fan. I did try watching OLTL when it came on the Web as I though it the best time to begin. However, I found it to be childish and boring. So I definitely have to go with AMC because they always have storylines that are not only excellent, but they teach us of different life situations. Vincent Irrizary is THE BEST ACTOR on AMC and I would love to see him receive the best actors award that he so deserves. Debbie Morgan is also always outstanding. I miss my AMC a ton. Good luck to… Read more »

Anyone from OLTL and AMC they all deserve an award for their performances ,they are all so talented and we miss miss them and are looking forward to seeing them again someday. If no one wins from those two shows than it would be a another mistake. Don’t get me wrong I watch the other four soaps too and those actors are fantastic too. Good luck to everyone.

Lindsay Hartley, Ryan Bittle, Eric Nelsen, Debbi Morgan, Vincent Irizarry and Sal Stowers all deserve a nomination for AMC in my view, Kelly Monaco from GH, Alison sweeney and Arianne Zuker fromDOOL, Kelley Missal, Corbin Bleu and Florencia Lozano from OLTL

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.
