Courtesy/CBS

CBS Daytime continued its year-long celebration as the number one daytime network for 30 years with the release of this epic “Class Photo” featuring over 100 plus daytime favorites from across current and former programs, including Let’s Make A Deal, The Price Is Right, The Young And The Restless, The Bold And The Beautiful, The Talk, As The World Turns, and Guiding Light.

This illustrious group gathered together a few weeks back for this photo shoot which emulates the classic 1978 CBS primetime TV photo shoot which featured, among so many others, the late Mary Tyler Moore.

Along with the photo, CBS released a behind the scenes video of the making of this soon to be iconic photo featuring moments with: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott, Eric Braeden, Peter Bergman, Eileen Davidson, B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang, John McCook, Heather Tom and Don Diamont and the one and only Bob Barker from The Price Is Right.

Check out the the video after the jump and let us know what you thought of the CBS Daytime Class Photo? Can you identify everyone in it? Share your thoughts and comment below.

I miss Guiding Light and As the World Turns.

I wonder if the fans can order the photo?

I miss GL. What they did to that show in the final years was criminal.

Remember Stenbeck’s final funeral on ATWT? His ex wife stabs the corpse in the chest just to make sure he’s really dead this time? Sooooooo good.

So agree Tomas about what they did to GL…I loved GL when Douglas Marland was the head writer…

Yeah Guiding Light is definitely missed. Too bad their previous exec producer Paul Raunch passed away because according to Grant Aleksander (Phillip) PR was working with P&G/CBS about bringing back GL on the internet. It was a done deal and then he passed away.

How do I love Peter Bergman? Let me count the ways. I also love Melody Thomas Scott, the one and only Eric Braeden and Eileen Davidson. How interesting was it to hear MTS talk about having her picture taken with the late and great Mary Tyler Moore back in 78. (by the way, what has MST done to herself? She looks amazing!). I could have done without the women from The Talk trying to hog the spotlight while patting themselves on the back for being number one. Their show is not number one and they are just lucky to be… Read more »

Peter Bergman’s picture is next to the word “Class” in the dictionary. Love him!

I would love to get a print of this BUT Cheryl Underwood HAD to be front and center and ruin it! She is loud AND obnoxious! No thank you.

Yes, she is.

Agreed. The Talk cast period is annoying, and they showed way too much of them in this video. Same with actors from Y&R and B&B, I was hoping to see more of the Guiding Light actors.

Why do they keep on bringing newbies on Bold & Beautiful when we haven’t seen Caroline in ages. She went to New York with the baby, came back and left again. I want to know how she takes Ridge & Brook’s engagement. I don’t think she left because they still show her picture in the credits at the beginning.

The photo is too small to identify who all is in it, but it’s a lovely idea. I wish they would offer it to the fans as a keepsake. Does anyone know if it’s for sale anywhere?

Rodd, did you push the play icon? You’re right–you cannot see much from the small photo but if you play the video it makes a lot more sense.

I did, but it was so quick, I could identify most.

Amanda Seyfried Scores Oscar Nomination for ‘Mank’; Opens Up About Her Bad Times on As the World Turns

Monday morning, Amanda Seyfried (Ex-Lucy, ATWT) landed her first ever Academy Award nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category for her performance in Mank in the role of Marion Davies. The film also led the way for the 93rd annual Oscars with the most nods for any film with 10.

The Oscar ceremonies will air live on ABC on Sunday, April 25th.  You can view all the nominations here.

In a recent interview with SiriusXM host, Jess Cagle on his Jess Cagle Show, he asked the talented actress about her start on As the World Turns, to which Amanda replied, “It was really exciting, and really heartbreaking. They were mean – whoever was in charge there.  I was 15 years old, like fire me in a nicer way.  I clearly wasn’t making the cut.  I was terrified. It wasn’t a warm environment – and not that anyone was being mean to me to my face, but these people were coming to work and doing their thing and leaving, and I was 15, and I was bad, and they sent my character off to South America.  They didn’t tell me that, they just didn’t invite me back.  I heard it through the actors playing my parents talking about where Lucy had gone – she had gone back to Montega. Then, Peyton List came on and resurrected my role for three years, and Peyton List is still my friend.”

 

Cagle then asked Amanda if her time in Oakdale soured her on continuing to be an actress, to which the now Oscar nom replied: “No, it didn’t.  It actually made me double-down at that point. This is what I want to do.  This is where I need to be.  I want that back, let’s get me another job, and I kept on auditioning and I got another job on another soap opera.”

The other role Amanda is referring to is her time as Joni Stafford on All My Children, where she often shared scenes with Michael. B. Jordan, then Reggie.

You can watch the exchange between Cagle and Seyfried sent to us by soap fan G.T. Lem below.

Now, share your thoughts on Amanda’s Oscar nomination and her remarks on her time as a young actress on ATWT in the comment section.

FYI – Actress Amanda Seyfried discusses her time on “As The World Turns” saying it wasn’t a warm environment and the person in charge (who later fired her) was “mean”
