Over the weekend, Cady tweeted her gratitude to the fans for welcoming her into the Salem family sharing: “Thank you all very much for your support! I am happy to help keep #jackandjen front and center… wait till you see what Matt Ashford does with this story! He really shines! Proud to be a part of this terrific cast .”and show!

 

And fans should stay tuned as Jack (Matthew Ashford) and Jennifer’s relationship is rocked, as the story involving the content of the letter, and Jack and Kate’s (Lauren Koslow) secret comes to light, setting the stage for drama, drama, and more drama this week as the series celebrates its 55th annuverary.

She needs to stick around; am loving her in the role, and cannot wait to see what comes next in the storyline. Not to mention, she has fantastic chemistry with the cast, especially Matthew Ashford (who I am not a huge fan of).

Sorry, was trying to give her a chance, but she isn’t good. Not as bad as the replacement Kristen Dimera from Eileen Davidson but it’s bad. Plus she needs to lay off the Botox…. I just hope Missy Reeves comes back soon!!!

Adam, take a flying leap! You say her acting stinks and her looks are bad? I’d love to see what you look like!

Violet, I didn’t say her acting stinks, I just said she wasn’t good in that role. I also didn’t say her looks are bad, I just said she needs to lay off the Botox… I think you need to stop reading into things and go take the flying leap yourself.

Missy Reeves, despite the PR spin, is in the proverbial dog house. I will be very surprised if DOOL brings Missy back any time soon. NBC is still dealing with the loud backlash as a result of Missy’s publicly stated views about BLM.

Contrary to your opinion, I think that Cady is brilliant in the role of Jennifer. Long May Cady stay!
The comment about Boxtox is both insensitive AND uncalled for. Your personal approval of Cady’s appearance is not required or requested.

Appreciate your comment. As I happen to like Cady. I guess my buttons got pushed when he said “she isn’t good and to lay off the Botox”

Why? She chose to keep her family safe and the ones she works with as well. I don’t blame her for making the decision she made.

not one questionable “commentary” look how quickly other characters get to respond… no waiting… no long camera pan… truthfully.. i’m still caught up in the election, covid, interruption galore… so affecting my viewing habit from what i’m catching up on…. Cady’ got it… and Jack is responding!!! i hope to be back up to speed, when Ava returns !!!! at the very least my new couple that i was rooting for from the start, may be back on track… and that’s the lighted up blossom of Tripp and Ali. “YOUNG LOVE” stirring two qualified acts , hit the skids and… Read more »

Only Melissa Reeves can play Jennifer. I am a big fan and grew up watching her. She is an amazing person and I love everything she stands for. Please bring her back! Also as a side note; Stacey rocks the part of Kristen Dimera. Love her.

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.

Check out the full winners circle list from last night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.

NATAS President and CEO, Adam Sharp, Shares Insight Into 49th Annual Daytime Emmys Telecast

The Daytime Emmys are just three days away when the gold statuettes are handed out on the 49th Annual Awards Show telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+ on Friday night, June 24th (9pm EST).

Ahead of the ceremonies, NATAS President and CEO, Adam Sharp, spoke to Variety to give some details of what viewers may be on the lookout for when the broadcast returns, with an all-live presentation for the first time since 2019, and through the Covid-19 pandemic, which caused it to pivot to virtual ceremonies for the last two years.

Now, Sharp shares that with the previously announced realignment that will see Children’s & Family programming having its own Emmy that, “The telecast will be very squarely focused on the dramas, talk shows and game shows.”  He also adds: “It will be a bit more focused.”

With an audience present this year, Sharp is counting on the live element to heighten the awards night fun and drama. expressing, “Hopefully that  excitement conveys to the viewers.  I think you’ll see us try to put a lot of that interaction on display.”

This year’s Daytime Emmys will feature 14 categories which Sharp hopes streamlines the broadcast and keeps it to a tight two-hour celebration of daytime.

Previously, NATAS and the TV Academy (which administers the Primetime Emmys), decided to move away from day part distinctions and focus more on genre. In addition, streaming series featuring soap notables, such as Studio City and The Bay, will be competing for nomination slots in September’s Primetime Emmys.

So, looking forward to this year’s Daytime Emmy telecast? Comment below.
