The 25th Annual Emery Awards, held on Thursday, November 10th at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City, was a celebration to remember. The event raised $1.3 million for the Hetrick-Martin Institute.

Venice creator and star, Crystal Chappell, who is also a HMI Ambassador and Good Morning America’s Sam Champion co-hosted the awards ceremony that honored Newark, NJ Mayor Cory A. Booker, Charles Fagan of Ralph Lauren, and Macy’s, whose award was accepted by Jeff Gennette of Macy’s, Inc. Joining them on stage was Kenneth Cole, Gayle King, and Ralph Lauren. NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Harvey Milk School alum Kerry Neal gave a heartwarming special tribute to Fred Goldhaber – the first teacher of the Harvey Milk School who passed away last year. Alan Cumming and Christie’s Brian McComack auctioned off a trip to Parrot Cay and 25th Annual Emery Awards Legacy Plaques. HMI youth groups Stars of Change and CHAT stole the show with their performance that honored the adults who have made a positive impact in their lives. And, to cap off the event, Tony award winning actress Betty Buckley reprised “Memory” before the after party, Après Emery, got underway.

The Hetrick-Martin Institute, home of the Harvey Milk High School, believes all young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential.  Founded in New York City in 1979, the Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI) provides a comprehensive counseling, case management and after-school environment for over 2,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-gender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth between the ages of 12 and 24 and their families from over 300 surrounding zip codes.  HMI’s mission of Empowerment, Education and Advocacy fosters healthy youth development via direct services and referrals as well as innovative social service and academic enrichment programs that other organizations around the country now use as models.  HMI is a registered 501 (c) (3) supported by government, private sector and individual supporters including HMI Ambassadors Andy Bell, Crystal Chappell, Judy Gold, Tim Gunn, Cheyenne Jackson, Heather Matarazzo, Carole Pope, Kimora Lee Simons, Robert Verdi and BD Wong.  For more information please visit www.hmi.org!

TODAY: B&B’s Sean Kanan Visits ‘The Talk’

Friday on CBS’ The Talk, Sean Kanan (Deacon Sharpe, The Bold and the Beautiful) is one of the afternoon series special guests, and will discuss and preview the continuation of the crossover story arc that finds Deacon in drama with Y&R and Genoa City’s Nikki Newman.

Next week, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) comes to B&B as she tries to get dirt on Diane (Susan Walters) and wastes no time in telling Deacon he has to help her with her revenge plot.  After all, Deacon helped frame Nikki to look like she murdered Diane many years ago.

Kanan weighed-in on Deacon’s motives in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, sharing: “He actually wants to help Nikki.  Deep down, I think Deacon is more of a good person than a bad person.  He’s a guy who wants to do the right thing be he’s got issues.”

Tune in today for The Talk at 2pm ET / 1pm PT on CBS and Paramount Plus as Kanan reveals more of what’s to come with the show co-hosts: Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Jerry O’Connell, Sheryl Underwood and Natalie Morales.

In addition, Morales may have a thing or two to add to Kanan’s visit, since she has been making appearances on Y&R playing ace reporter, Talia Morgan, who has been investigating Diane Jenkins.

Looking forward to seeing Sean on ‘The Talk’? Will you be watching next week for the crossover to continue with Sean and Melody Thomas Scott in scenes on B&B? Comment below.

Elizabeth Gillies First Post-‘Dynasty’ Role Revealed; GH Alum Bryan Craig Also In Cast

Now that the CW’s Dynasty has come to its conclusion after five seasons, many have wondered what series star Elizabeth Gillies (ex-Fallon) will be seen in next.  Part of the answer was revealed today in casting news via Deadline.

Gillies will star and is the co-executive producer of a new Tubi film called Spread.  In it, Liz will take on the role of  ambitious and aspiring journalist, who lands a temp job at an adult magazine run by an aging industry king played by Harvey Keitel.  The character must reconcile her idealism as she strives to help the company succeed.

Spread is written by Buffy Charlet, who is another of the films Co-EP’s, and is inspired by Charlet’s real-life experience as a temp at Hustler magazine who rose in the ranks to become an editor.

The film also stars two-time Daytime Emmy winner Bryan Craig (ex-General Hospital, Good Trouble).

Look for Spread to drop on Tubi in 2023.

So, intrigued to see Liz and Bryan in Tubi’s new film, ‘Spread’? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

‘NBC News Daily’ Hits Rock Bottom In Ratings Premiere Week

While networks have seen a collective erosion over the years of the soap opera viewing audience, they are still the most loyal and fierce of any entertainment genre.

With NBC’s decision to take Days of our Lives off of the network after nearly 57 years, and replace it with another daytime news program, they would surely have a rocky road ahead of them to capture viewers in that time slot; especially now that DAYS was moved exclusively to NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock.

Nothing was more proof positive of that, than the first week ratings and performance of NBC News Daily.

The news show which premiered on Monday, September 12th came in last for the ratings period of all daytime shows for the week.

According to SON: NBC News Daily averaged 935,000 viewers, was last among Total Viewers and last in the key demo ratings: Women 18-49 (tie) and Women 25-54.

In comparison to DAYS last week on NBC, and a year ago, NBC News Daily was down -744,000 and -762,000 viewers, respectively.

NBC News Daily features the latest national and international news, plus consumer, health, and personal finance segments and is hosted by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Morgan Redford and Vicky Nguyen.

So, will ‘NBC News Daily’ find itself facing the same fate as ABC’s defunct ‘Revolution’, which replaced One Life to Live, and lasted only six months, or will the news program somehow turn a ratings corner? Does NBC really care one way or the other? Share your thoughts below.
