BREAKING NEWS: Daytime Emmy Awards to be Televised on HLN!

Fantastic news soapers!  Finally, after some back and force, NATAS and HLN have reached a deal and the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards have found a broadcast home and will be televised for the first time on a cable network!

Variety had this report just a little awhile ago!  “The 39th edition of the event, which had spent the past two years on CBS, will air live at 8 p.m. Eastern and 5 p.m. Pacific, with encore broadcasts to follow on HLN, which reaches approximately 95 million homes domestically.   A host has not been finalized but is expected to be announced within the next two weeks.

National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman Malachy Wienges told Variety that the daytime community was “unhappy” with the previous two shows.  The organization went to several producers looking for a fresher take.  “After the last show, the daytime community approached NATAS and said that if we have to do the show in 2012 the exact same as in 2010 and 2011, we would rather have an un-televised event and just have a sit-down dinner and honor ourselves in Beverly Hills.” Wienges said.   The new approach will focus on a celebration of daytime TV at a time of transition for the industry, which has seen such defining dramas as  All My Children and One Life to Live leave the air in the past year.

“This has to be as much a tribute to daytime television as an awards show,”  said Gabriel Gornell who along with Colleen Seldin will produce this years telecast.  That being said, Gornell asserted that the awards themselves — which spread across a number of genres that include animation, game shows, talk, culinary and children’s programming — wouldn’t be marginalized.   “While we pay tribute to television, it’s the awards that are going to get us there. This show is probably going to have more awards than previous years and is probably going to have fewer song-and-dance numbers than previous years.”

Word of HLN’s interest in the Daytime Emmys emerged in early May. HLN exec veep and general manager Scot Safon said that from the first moment the cabler was approached in March as a potential television partner, there was a natural fit.

“HLN focuses on news stories and information and things that our audience wants to talk about,” Safon said. “That includes the celebrations like the Emmy awards. If there’s a fanbase there, which for daytime television is an enormous fanbase, and the show was really going to delight that fanbase, then we were interested in presenting that — because that’s a news event to them.”

HLN and parent company Turner, which also provides the annual home for the Screen Actors Guild awards on TNT and TBS, are developing a number of promos to draw attention to the kudocast. “From the very beginning, it really came down to finding the right broadcast television partner that understood what we we’re trying to accomplish,” Gornell said, “not only creatively but from a messaging standpoint, that also had the platform resources to get behind it.”

The Daytime Emmys will now hopefully get the break they needed and we can truly honor daytime that way it should be for the hard work and performances and series, the fans around the world love every day.  So, soapers, what do you think of the news?  Let us know!

This is great news! Everybody who has basic cable should get HLN (Headline News)! If you get CNN, you should get it since it’s owned by the same company. At least something is finally going right for the soaps!

Lipstickcat, Good Grief, I have been all over here trying to find a place I can post back to you, Yes I still have soapnet, for how long I don’t know. I have direct tv. So yes I get to still watch the soaps in the evening, direct tv, They have a poll to see how many people watch the soaps and which soaps I watch and would want back sure would be nice if they took one life to live and put it on.

This is wonderful news!!!!!! Thank you HLN and those that brought this to fruition. I am also glad to hear that this broadcast will focus more on the awards (which in turn means those nominated for them), rather than song and dance numbers. Last year ‘s broadcast was more like an ad for Vegas than a tribute to the work of those in Daytime TV, so I am truly looking forward to this refreshing change. I also look forward to a much well deserved tribute to AMC and OLTL, and big wins for GH, AMC and OLTL. I cannot wait… Read more »

Love HLN’s decision. So happy that it sounds like they’ll dispense with the “Vegas Show” type of broadcast, and focus back on the Daytime shows, the performers, and the fan base.

Great! Sounds like it won’t be an travemercial this year. I’d like to see clips from the nominees. Yes, fewer song and dance numbers and ads as part of the show would be very nice. I get why it was that way previously, but it was insulting to daytime and viewers. I also think it’s great that it will have multiple airings. Looking forward to a good show. Hope they get a good host. Either someone who works in daytime (soap hopefully) or worked in daytime or is a fan and knowledgeable about the genre.

I’m so happy that the Daytime Emmys will be broadcast next month on HLN! Many thanks to them. I like what I’m hearing about plans to concentrate more on the awards themselves and the tributes to AMC and OLTL. How wonderful would it be if those two beloved shows were resurrected on one of the Turner networks? They would be getting a built-in and very loyal fan base, that’s for sure!

Chrishell Stause and Singer G Flip Confirm Relationship

During the premiere of Friday night’s Selling Sunset reunion show on Netflix, there were several major moments, but one of them surprised many.

Former All My Children, Days of our Lives, and ‘Young and the Restless’ star, Chrishell Stause confirmed that she is in a relationship with Australian singer, G Flip.

Stause revealed that she is seeing the non-binary singer after the moderator, Tan France asked Chrishell if she was seeing anyone. The former soap star expressed: “I recently have been spending a lot of time with someone that’s very important to me. Their name is G Flip. They’re non-binary, so they go by they/them,” adding, “They are an extremely talented musician.”

Leave it to her soap background to play a part in the ultimate connection between Chrishell and G Flip. Stause explained: “It started because I was just going to be in their video. And it’s about this chaotic love story. I come from soaps, I love acting. And with the job that we have, I don’t always get to do it. At first of course I was like yes, let’s do that.”

G Flip’s latest single GAY 4 Me is out now and her new single is dropping on May 13th, GET ME OUTTA HERE.

Previously, Chrishell was dating her ‘Selling Sunset’ boss, Jason Oppenheim, who opined about the break-up of their relationship on the special. In a scene shown on the Netflix special, Oppenheim shared, “This is not the time of my life where I want to have a family.”  Months back, reports had surfaced that the couple had differences they could not overcome.  However, now Jason expressed that Stause was “the love of my life” and said he may regret forever the fact that he let her go.

Now back to present time.  According to PEOPLE.com, Stause is enjoying the company of G Flip, and the two were seen out and about at West Hollywood’s nightclub/bar, The Abbey, this past Thursday cozying up to one another.

In addition, it appears that Stause and G Flip are now living together in Chrishell’s Los Angeles home, which reportedly was purchased, in part, by her selling her wedding to her ex husband, This Is Us star, Justin Hartley.

Over the last 24 hours, Stause took to her Instagram story clad in a bikini, and showed us the renovation progress of a large closet at her home.  She closed the IG story withm “I’m gonna come out of it now,” to which several of her former DAYS castmates had fun with the ‘play on words’ response and shared some comments back to her.

So, what do you think of Chrishell entering into a relationship with G Flip? We wish them the best. Share your thoughts below.
