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!

Kelly Missal and Florencia should be nominated!

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 the Emmys will mean more than they have in a few years. And if AMC or OLTL could win some awards this year, it’ll be a nice rebuke to ABC for letting the shows, and the talent, go under Brian Frons.

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.

Who is Sal Stowers?

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.

Bonnie

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, OWN, wherever) but there are just too many unanswered questions and Prospect Park’s refusal to speak just nags at me…hinting that they are embroiled in something that could see these shows alive again. Personally, I am ready to let them go. The phrase “that ship has sailed” comes to mind. These shows have had a storied 40 year existence on regular television, they transitioned to the internet….they will live forever in the minds and hearts of the actors and fans. But their brief internet life afforded some awesome performances. The writing on both shows was somewhat disjointed and lacking, but there were moments of real quality. The acting, though….was very good overall. I find it absolutely absurd that Kassie DePaiva was only nominated ONCE for her nearly 20 year run as Blair. She should have some Emmy gold on her mantel. Strasser and Slezak are awesome as always, but neither did anything really noteworthy in the reboots. Jerry VerDorn did some fantastic work. The younger set, despite the incoherent writing, were really impressive. Kelley Missal, Robert Gorrie, Corbin Bleu, Sal Stowers, Robert Wilson….all really promising newcomers. I hope these shows get nominations and wins, as it would lend credibility to keeping these shows alive.

damed right!!
the acting by some of the soap stars on the internet soaps was stellar!! BRAVO!
And they should be in the running for the awards !!
It doesn’t mater what network or internet production, great actors and their performances should get awarded for a job well done!!

The best to AMC and OLTL entries !!!

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 Live, Erika Slezak did her usual top notch first rate job, even though she had relatively little to work with, script-wise. In fairness, the shows were barely on long enough to find their footing as on line inceptions….

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.

KansasGuest

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
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.

Wonderful news. Both Jerry verDorn and Debbie Morgan definitely should be among the winners. Please, please bring OLTL and AMC back to us.

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 all of them!

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

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.
