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.

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

The Young and the Restless Wins WGA Award For A Daytime Drama

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
