From the bottom of my heart I am so upset Sharon Case will not be able to win outstanding best actress this year. What a wonderful actress that deserved to win for an amazing performance ! She deserved to be at least in the running. Sharon Case is my winner! I am a long time viewer over 36 years. Thankyou 🙂

Kathy Griffin is vulgar and obscene and disgusting and Anderson Cooper is a bullying crybaby who attacks people when their opinions differ from his. No thanks!!

Who? For once I’m glad the awards are not online, no desire/incentive to watch.

Al I can say is ????? meaning I have no clue who any of the hosts are. I plan on dvr’ing the show and skipping over the non soap categories, so the hosts are irrelevant to me.

My first reaction: Who? Who? and Who? Nobodies — the entire lot of them.

Why can they NEVER seem to get the Daytime Emmy awards right?? No one has even heard of these three.

Not Sam Champion. I can barely stomach him on GMA. Good grief.

LOL! I frankly don’t care that these people are hosting; just glad it’s on the air. I guess these folks were the “give” in order to make it so. Just give me a healthy dose of my soap opera stars and I’ll be happy.

Teschner remembers: “Meghan Markle actually had her first speaking role in television on General Hospital.  She worked on the show in the background as a nurse, and we brought her up to read her to see if there was something there.”

Steve Burton chats on the craziest story he has ever played as Jason Morgan, revealing, “The one that always pops into my head is we had to go catch a monkey that had a virus, and I said to Laura (Wright) I think this is probably the end of my career today.”

The E! News special segment will show nostalgic clips from all the daytime dramas, including Luke and Laura’s wedding on GH, Marlena’s possession from DAYS, and some of Victor’s nefarious schemes from Y&R.
