Last night on NBC, the 43rd Annual NAACP Image Awards were doled out for with honors in motion pictures, television, recording, and literature.  And in the two acting categories for Daytime Dramas, All My Children’s Emerson Brooks, who played Ben, who helped keep Erica Kane kidnapped during the Jane doppelganger storyline and once again, The Young and the Restless‘ recurring guest star, Tatyana Ali (Roxanne) took away the Best Actor and Best Actress prize, respectively.

In a year that confused voters and soap pundits with the absence of AMC’s then Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams, who had a banner year, many of the five nominees seemed a bit of a stretch. However, Emerson’s website detailed his performance pretty spot-on,  ” For four months, Emerson Brooks starred on All My Children as Ben aka “The Man in Black.“ His performance was hailed by critics and fans for being  ”moving“ and  ”superbly acted.“ Ben’s story was the journey of a man whose personal guilt, due to the accidental death of a stranger’s child, led him to become involved in events that quickly spiraled out of his control. Ben assisted the child’s mother, Jane, in an attempt to hijack the life of Erica Kane; both roles played by Susan Lucci.

During the months Ben held Erica captive, they bonded emotionally giving each other the opportunity to see the world through each other’s eyes and for both to heal in their own way. For Ben, it was the realization of his true value and the value of forgiving oneself.  For Erica, it was a greater appreciation for her life, family and the experiences that made her who she is today.”

Tatyana Ali is never on Y&R, so how did she win best actress? What about Debbi Morgan and the young woman from B&B?

Don’t mean to sound like a dope, but I don’t even know who Emerson Brooks is….and I don’t remember his character. And like stated before, Tatyana is hardly ever on Y&R, so how did these two win? I mean I don’t begrudge them this award….Happy for them, but I believe there were much more deserving people for these awards. Debbi Morgan or Darnell Williiams for their contributions at AMC, Tonye Patano (Phylicia Evans OLTL) for how she dealt with Destiny’s pregnancy with Nora, or even Shaun & Destiny for their contributions on OLTL…..Renee Jones (Lexie Carver on DOOL), or the man who plays her husband James Reynolds….Point being, there are other actors that were more deserving.

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.
