Very exciting to see a well deserve win for Jill and OLTL in it’s final days on ABC. Sad that it happened a year after OLTL’s demise on a national network. But many thanks again to PP for reviving a wonderful soap. Congratulations to all at OLTL that participated in those final episodes… they truly were amazing!!

Congratulations! Well deserved. OLTL was the best show ever!!! I hope it will be again.

Does anyone know if Frank/Ron sent in Emmy reels? I hope that OLTL cleans up at the Daytime Emmys this year. The last 2 weeks of the show were some of the best in the 43 1/2 years of the show. I can say this because I watched from day 1.

I completely agree with you, Liz!
