In ceremonies across the pond on Sunday, Coronation Street bested Casualty, Holby City and Emmerdale  to take home the 2022 BAFTA TV Award for Best Soap and Continuing Drama.

On hand to accept the award from the cast were Sally Dynevor (Sally Webster) and Charlie de Melo (Imran Habeeb).

During her acceptance speech, Dynevor dedicated the win and the award to Sophie Lancaster and her mother, Sylvia.

Sally said: “One of the most important stories we have told this year was the hate crime story. So we would like to dedicate this to Sophie Lancaster and her mother Sylvia Lancaster.”

Heartbreakingly, Sylvia died a few short weeks ago.  The mother had founded the Sophie Lancaster Foundation following her daughter’s death in 2007 when she was kicked to death because she was dressed as a goth.

The actress also expressed: ‘We weren’t expecting this tonight, we really weren’t, so thank you so much BAFTA for this award. Working on this show is just a privilege, and the drama and the comedy go so well on Corrie.”

Wow, EastEnders not even nominated. The show must be in need of a refresh.

Eastenders is having it’s difficulties. Like the silly, out of the blue make Ben the Walford Stalker nonsense. Which is now leading up to him being sexually assaulted by the new bar tender Kathy hired for the Albert. Emmerdale was the clear winner even though campy serial killer Meena took over the show for way too long. Thank goodness that finally ended. The worst part is they won the award off camera in an also won segment, and weren’t a real part of the evening.

Fox Announces Primetime Soap ‘Monarch’ On Fall Schedule

You remember the tawk of the multi-generational musical drama about America’s first family of country music that was supposed to air in January?  Well, eventually due to Covid-19, the plans for its debut got scrapped from a two-night premiere set for Sunday, January 30 as a midseason replacement and kicked back to the fall.

Now, Fox has confirmed that Monarch is indeed on their fall schedule during its annual Upfront presentation on Monday.

The soapy series stars Oscar winner, Susan Sarandon as the Queen of Country Music Dottie Cantrall Roman, and her husband Albie Roman played by country singer, Trace Adkins.

In story, Dottie and Albie have created a country music dynasty. But even though the Roman name is synonymous with authenticity, the very foundation of their success is a lie. And when their reign as country royalty is put in jeopardy, heir to the crown Nicky Roman played by Anna Friel, will stop at nothing to protect her family’s legacy, while ensuring her own quest for stardom.

No word yet from Fox on what night of the week Monarch will land on the full fall schedule.  Stay tuned.

The CW Cancels ‘Dynasty’; Show Will End With Current Fifth Season

As some had suspected, with ailing ratings and virtually no promotion, the CW’s reboot of Dynasty has been canceled.  The primetime soap will end at the end of its current fifth season, meaning no season six as die-hard fans and the cast and crew had hoped for.

Dynasty has been a soap on steroids, with snappy dialog, over-the-top storylines, and some wonderful performances especially from series lead, Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon).  Elizabeth tweeted upon the news of the cancellation: “SO PROUD OF MY BEAUTIFUL DYNASTY FAMILY!!”

According to Deadline, the show had been kept in production partly because of the revenue it generated with its deal with Netflix.

The cast includes: Daniella Alonso as Cristal Carrington, Elaine Hendrix as Alexis Carrington Colby, Rafael de la Fuente as Sammy Jo Jones, Sam Underwood as Adam Carrington, Michael Michele as Dominique Deveraux, Robert Christopher Riley as Michael Culhane, Sam Adegoke as Jeff Colby, Maddison Brown as Kirby Anders, Adam Huber as Liam Ridley, Eliza Bennett as Amanda Carrington and Grant Show as Blake Carrington.

CW’s Dynasty was the reboot of the classic 80’s ABC primetime version, which aired from 1981-1989, with a modern twist to several of the characters and stories.

So, sad to know there will be no more Dynasty on the CW? Do you think the show could be shopped somewhere else? Comment below.
