Breaking news this afternoon from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences where On-Air On-Soaps has learned through an Academy spokesperson that the presentations of The Outstanding Younger Actor and Actress categories will now be reinstated and handed out as in previous years at the main presentation of the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on June 23rd at the Beverly Hilton Hotel!

As previously reported this morning, NATAS made headlines with their decision to drop the two acting categories from the main show and instead present them at the Creative Arts Emmys on June 17th!  Well, after much pushback from the industry and a review of an early draft of the categories scheduled for presentation, they are now putting the categories back to the main ceremonies.  Now, we are still awaiting confirmation as to if the Emmys will air on television, the internet, or not air anywhere at all.

In the meantime, this is great news for Younger Actor nominees; Chandler Massey, Eddie Alderson, Chad Duell and Nathan Parsons, and Younger Actress nominees, Christel Khalil, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, Molly Burnett and Shelley Hennig! These talented performers, in a year where their work was stellar, will now be celebrated and recognized with their acting peers on the biggest night in daytime.    Thank God!

Totally agree….OLTL was by far the best soap, and should have received the Emmy, hands down….And to be honest, I’m not happy with the total low number of nominations for the cast….I have a long list that was left out: Florencia, Roger, Trevor, Kassie, Kristen, Bree, Melissa, John Paul, Farah, Austin, Mark Lawson, Kim Zimmer, and the list just goes on and on……The nomination list should have been full of OLTL’ers… Not to mention, how and the hell did OLTL not get nominated for Outstanding Writing in A Daytime Drama? The Emmy’s are a joke.

The sad part about it was that one life to live was ignored for so many years and even in the last year of it’s life it was ignored, and I am beginning to sound like a broken record but one life to live deserves to be on the best drama series and best writing category. and all the names you mentioned getting ignored just blows my mind. I am being accused of being a ONE LIFE TO LIVE FANATIC, but I don’t care I love that soap and I believe it was once again ripped off at the emmys,… Read more »

You are so right. OLTL was robbed and so were the fans of the show. I am a die hard OLTL fanatic, so don’t worry, I know how you feel and what you mean. I am still trying to keep hope alive that OLTL will somehow make its way back to the small screen. Because, to me, it’s just the BEST. I am scratching my head and wondering how in the hell AMC got a nomination for Outstanding Drama, and OLTL didn’t. I know this may piss some people off, but I’m gonna say it anyway….. It has always bothered… Read more »

At least they got their heads on straight and kept the categories where they belong.

Let’s hope they will air the Daytime Emmy Awards on TV or online so the fans can watch.

What a no brainer. Of course Younger Actor and Actress categories should be presented. These people play significant characters with significant air time. Just because they are younger was no reason to exclude them. Everybody wants to see who will win in these categories after so many exceptional performances.

I think it would have been wrong on so many levels, not to have the young actress actor category in the same league of the others main presentations. These young talented artists work their butt off, long hours for us to be entertained, they earned that recognition like the others, they deserve to be acknowledged for their efforts, skills and and beauty…So really THANK GOD that somebody at the Academy got that straight..
Good luck to you JACQUELINE MACINNESS WOOD, you are my favorite to win.

I’m disappointed.

I really hope that CD or EA wins the younger actor award. NP should be discriminated against just like his former co-star was. He doesn’t LOOK like he should be in the Younger Actor Category so he shouldn’t be included in it.

It’s all about how you look and not your real age.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Jackée Harry to Appear in Final Season of FX’s ‘Pose’

You can never get enough Jackée, right? Right! The popular actress who recently made her daytime drama return in a new role on Days of our Lives as Paulina, will also be seen next month in the third and final season of the hit and groundbreaking FX series, Pose.

The final batch of episodes bows on May 2, 2021, and Entertainment Weekly revealed that Harry will be part of the last season.

In a tweet on social media, Jackée expressed: “And I’m SO relieved to finally tell you to catch me on the final season of #PoseFX  Consider me honored and over the moon!!!!””

For those who don’t know, Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore and Hailie Sahar, who co-star alongside Billy Porter, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard and Jason Rodriguez. The Golden Globe-nominated drama also features the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.

In the final season of Pose, it’s now 1994 and ballroom feels like a distant memory for the character of Blanca who struggles to balance being a mother with being a present partner to her new love, and her latest role as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS becomes the leading cause of death for Americans ages 25 to 44, Pray Tell contends with unexpected health burdens. Elsewhere, the emergence of a vicious new upstart house forces the House of Evangelista members to contend with their legacy.

Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, who executive produce alongside Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh and Janet Mock. Our Lady J is co-executive producer.

Excited to see Jackée featured in the upcoming season of Pose? Enjoying her as DAYS Paulina? Comment below.
