All My Children

AMC & OLTL were pure Daytime Emmy Gold. There was Lucci winning & Slezak's record!

If you take a hard look at the facts; All My Children and One Life to Live have been record-setters and record breakers when it comes to winning Daytime Emmy Awards.  Tom O’Neil, the awards guru from the L.A. Times took a look back and who won from these shows, and how many! (We have made some corrections to the below from his original post, as the Times piece had a few missing dates and wins!)

“All My Children was voted best drama series three times in 1998, 1994 and 1992. David Canary (Adam) won five times in the lead actor race: 1993, 1989, 1988 , 1986 and 2001. Darnell Williams (1985) took that category too. Among lead actress champs were Dorothy Lyman (1983) and the very first star to win the Daytime Emmy for acting: Mary Fickett (1972). Susan Lucci lost 18 times before ultimately prevailing. When she finally held the Emmy in her grasp at the podium in 1999, she said, “There’s something to be said for anticipation. It’s not all bad.”

It’s shocking, One Life to Live won best drama series only once (2002). Erika Slezak won lead actress six times: 2005, 1996, 1995, 1992, 1986, 1984. Other lead actress champs: Susan Haskell ( 2009), Judith Light (1981, 1980), Hillary B. Smith (1994) and Robin Strasser (1982). Lead actor victors: Al Freeman Jr. (1979), Robert Woods (1983).”

The bottom line here is:  Some of the most deserving Best Actress winners  in the history of soapdom, were or are, on One Life to Live! And, who can ever forget La Lucci’s win over at AMC!  Let’s hope there are more accolades to come for OLTL and AMC at this year’s Daytime Emmys this June and next! Remember the series and the performers can still be eligible  in 2012’s race too!

It’s true All My Children and One Life To Live were and are phenomenal shows who have always exhibited tremendous talent. I really don’t know what ABC/Disney is thinking but if they think their station is in supposed trouble now, they are in for a rude awakening when these shows go off the air. This is one “revolution” daytime viewers will not be participating in, I hope the truth will be hard to swallow when Frons and Sweeney “chew” on that.

All My Children has lost much of what made it so good, so for long. Different writers, different stories are needed.
I can now see why it is going off the air.
OLTL is much better and should not be cancelled

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.

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.
