Last weekend, fans of Days of our Lives converged in Los Angeles for the annual Days of our Lives Weekend 2010 edition.  The three day fan fest featured your favorite Salemites attending various charity events.   Saturday morning, former DAYS star, and star of the new web series, The Bay, Martha Madison opened the doors to her restaurant, Henry’s Hat which served as the fantastic back-drop for the star-studded Breakfast with Samantha’s Friend’s Benefit.  Alison Sweeney, Crystal Chappell, Charles Shaughnessy, Judi Evans, Lauren Koslow and very special guest, Deidre Hall, were just some of the actors who warmed the hearts of the crowd.

Friday night featured the Friday Night Dance Party for Love Charitable Events, which had some of the younger set of Salem cranking up the heat. Casey Deidrick, Molly Burnett, Shelley Hennig, Mark Hapka, and James Scott, were dancing the night away with fans for a good cause. Another fantastic day event was Saturday’s, Afternoon In Salem For Love Charitable Events To Benefit The Cancer Research Institute. Soapers got to see Ejami together…Alison Sweeney and James Scott, plus Arianne Zuker, Eric Martsolf and Lindsay Hartley were also on hand working the crowd into a DAYS frenzy as was Marky Mark Hapka!

Thanks for all the good snaps! It was a wonderful weekend in L.A. full of fun and charity. The event at Henry’s Hat was so nice with all the veteran actors and some of the newer stars as well. The FLCE events were such a treat for EJami fans and all the stars who attended were kind and generous to each of us. DCE had a good number of Days stars and Justin Hartley!! All in all, it was a fan’s dream weekend.

LOVED all of the events! I loved that I got to meet James and Ali for the first time, and all of the other great cast members as an added bonus!

Although I must admit that the highlight of the DCE, was that fact that I got to meet Justin Hartley! Mr. Green Arrow himself! (I am SUCH a fangirl! LOL!)

I LOVE “Smallville”, and loved him as the original Fox Crane from Passions!

So to get the chance to meet him in person was awesome!

I don’t usually go for James Scott, but wow! Those glasses work for him. He looks so doable. But this comment will probably make him more full of himself, since that’s how he seems like in his interview here.

Photo gallery is great, Michael. What a good looking bunch of people!, The scene with Melissa Reeves was wonderful to see . She is a doll and hasn’t changed at all. It would be nice to see her back on the DOOL canvas. I’m sure there are others who would agree with me……

They look great together.

I have never considered that JS is full of himself, but if he is, who could blame him? I mean, just look at him? I do not see a flaw.

Loved the pics so thanks for sharing! Thought Ari Z and Eric M look terrific, like the newly crowned Princess and Prince of Days…they need to be a couple. But where were my faves, the Queens and King, Kristian and Peter???? 😉 😉

Crystal Chappell was rocking those sandals! Looks like a wonderful time was had by all. The Frances Reid tribute had to be full of tears; I know the show is moving me to tears with Alice dying. However, it is really good to see some of the vets, even if it is only for a bit.

I refused to go to the Flce event bc it was run by the whole 50 members of Forbidden Love. We finally know their true numbers, and a friend showed me the list of people that went. I was told they sold fifty tickets, what a joke. I would never go to an event run by them for their own agenda, Ej and Sami. I am so glad that Ken Coraday put out his article directly after that underwhelming event.
The other events were fab, and everyone was very nice. I heard nobody asked Limdsey Hartley any questions, poor thing. Goes to show it was all about James Scott and Ali Sweeney.

What you “hear” is often wrong. Lindsay Hartley was asked at least one question I saw, a question about her character’s different jobs since coming to Salem. The Q&A was very short, to leave lots of time for the auction. The actors where very vocal during the auction, jumping in to try to drive the bids higher, especially Alison Sweeney, Eric Martsolf, and Ari Zucker. Those three clearly love attention, but Lindsay Hartley was quiet. I think she must be a shy, quiet person.

Refusing to go to a charity event because you don’t like some of the organizers fictional rooting couple is childish. There were Days cast members there besides James and Alison, including members of other pairings of Sami and EJ, Galen Gering, and Ari Zucker. They must have felt cancer research was a worthwhile cause. The agenda was raising money for cancer research, not James Scott and Alison Sweeney. Nobody tried to convert me to being an Ejami all weekend. And there where way more than 50 people there. I couldn’t even tell you how many. I would think 50 members of one website organizing an event must mean they have a huge membership, since a very low percent of any group has people who actively do things like organize charity events. Whoever did it, they did a fantastic job.

I don’t get it! Even in that picture the chemistry is there!

Go EJAMI!

The beautiful thing is I didn’t go bc I don’t like Ej and Sami. This was nothing but an event for their fans, who have made posting in general and watching the show miserable. Why, bc they are mean and vicous and spiteful. I know I am not the only one who has been treated badly by the Ejami fan base. If you must know, I ablsoutely refuse to associate myself with people who act like nothing more then school yard bullies. Now, I did get a look at that list, so I know for a fact how many people were there. A friend showed me. She is very trustworthy. Now, as for not wanting to associate myself with people who are like a cult at best, that is my right and it is not childish. As a free thinking person, I have the right to spend time with whom ever I want. I refuse to spend time with people who behave like bullies on the net. There they have the key board to hide behind, who knows what they would do to people w.o. that key board.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

DAYS Chandler Massey Chats On His Bittersweet Daytime Emmy Nomination

He’s won three Daytime Emmys in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series three years in row in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and now Chandler Massey is going for gold for the second time in his career in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series which in a field where he is competing with two co-stars from Days of our Lives among others.

Massey has long been a stand out performer, giving nuanced and emotional portrayals in the angst-ridden life of Will Horton and the love of his life, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).

Back in February of this year, DAYS fans learned that Chandler and Freddie had taped their last episodes, and since the NBC soap tapes more than 6 months ahead of air, that the two will still be on the air into the fall.  That has made this moment of recognition for Massey all the more poignant.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Chandler to get his reaction to the news that he is once again a Daytime Emmy nominee, and here’s what he had to say about it all.

Photo: JPI

 

I thought it was great that you received another Emmy nomination.  What do you think?

CHANDLER:  Yeah.  I thought it was pretty great too, actually.   I was surprised.  I wasn’t keeping up on when they were announcing the nominations.   I was thrilled that Wally (Kurth) and Paul (Telfer) also got nominated too in the same category.  So, hopefully, DAYS, has a decent shot to take it home.

What did you end up submitting that ultimately landed you the nomination?

CHANDLER:  I went with some scenes that aired on December 16th of last year (I just looked that up), where Will basically breaks up with Sonny when Sonny comes to visit him in prison.  I liked those because they were sort of subtle.  I just found myself drawn in when I watched it, and it wasn’t big or dramatic, but it felt like two real people sharing their pain.  So, that’s why I chose it.

Photo: JPI

I remember those.  Those were heartbreaking because he had to get Sonny to let him go.

CHANDLER:  Yes.  He said he has a new prison boyfriend, and that he’s doing really well in prison, so he doesn’t want to be tied down. (Laughs)

You’ve had Freddie Smith as your scene partner for so much of your run on DAYS.  What did he give you in those scenes that helped you, or even further enabled the performance that you gave?

CHANDLER:  Freddie always gives everything.  He is a consummate professional, so he really commits every time.  I think it is more that we are just so comfortable with each other that we are not afraid, and that there is no hesitation between the two of us, so we just are able to do the work.  We usually know we are there to listen to, and support each other. in the scenes.

Photo: NATAS

Was your entire submission from the prison scenes or did you include something else?

CHANDLER:  It was just that.  I know I could have included something else, but I like to keep it sort of short because I feel like as a judge, I know within a few minutes.  It’s not that I get bored, but it really only takes a scene or two, and then, you’re like, “this is something special.”  You can recognize it pretty quickly.

So, you have won three Daytime Emmys. This is your first nomination in a few years, right?

CHANDLER:  Yeah, I didn’t get nominated the year before.  I had a gap year… to my family’s great shame. (Laughs)  They were not pleased with me.

Photo: JPI

This is your second nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Daytime Drama Series category.

CHANDLER:  Yes. I was nominated in ‘Supporting’ for the first time when I came back to DAYS, and then submitted for “Lead” the next year, didn’t get nominated, and then went back to ‘Supporting’.  I learned my place.  I went back to ‘Supporting’ for this year.  (Laughs)

It’s such a game though, right?  .

CHANDLER:  Yeah, you’ve got to be smart.  I just thought, “What the heck?”  Freddie and I were like, “Maybe there’s a shot that if we pick different categories, we can both get nominated,” but then, after that didn’t work, I said, “Screw that… going back to ‘Supporting”

Now, you’ve been through Emmy night before, and this is obviously going to be a virtual Emmy’s.  Now, if they did a six-shot of all of the nominees, what would you wear?  Would you be dressed up?  Would you be casual?  What would you see yourself doing?

CHANDLER:  That’s a good question. I think maybe… I’ll do a little of both.  I’ll go the middle ground.  I’ll be in my finest bathrobe, a silk bathrobe so it’s casual but also still sort of fancy.

There you go.  (Laughs)  Is this nomination all the more special for you in that you are no longer working at DAYS? 

CHANDLER:  Oh, totally.  Every year is special, but you know, I’m not on the show anymore, so it’s a nice reminder that the work that I did had an effect on people, and it won’t be forgotten for at least a few more hours.

Photo: JPI

I saw the fan outcry and show of support for you and Freddie, when viewers got wind that you were exiting the series.  It was sad and heartwarming at the same time.  The WilSon fans are so behind you guys.

CHANDLER:  Yeah, if only they knew what horrible people that we were in real life, then they wouldn’t be this way, but thankfully… (Laughs)  Yeah, it’s really nice, but it is sad.  I started in 2009, and that was over 10 years ago, and nothing lasts forever.  I had a really, really great run, and so did Freddie.  I am very satisfied and don’t feel jipped, or like, I was entitled to anything more than I got.

Courtesy/NBC

Obviously, your co-nominees, Wally and Paul you worked with many times.  What can you say about them?

CHANDLER:  I think that both men deserve definitely to get second and third place.  (Laughs)  I have known Wally for a while now.  I love him.  I think his work is phenomenal.  I think he is really, really underrated.  Paul, I don’t know as well, but I think obviously his work speaks for himself.  If only he were physically attractive, I think that would really, really help his career.

Photo: JPI

I know, it’s a shame.

CHANDLER:  Unfortunately, he is kind of schleppy, you know?  (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

Did Freddie reach out to you after you received the nomination?  

CHANDLER:  Oh yes, he sent a text congratulating me, and we talked about it.  It was nice.  I feel like our stories are so intertwined, the scenes we submit are mostly with each other.  So, it’s really kind of a shared accolade.

So, will you be rooting for Chandler to cap off his career on DAYS with an Emmy win on June 26th during the virtual ceremony on CBS? What did you think of the nominated scenes he submitted? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
