Daytime Emmy Nominations Postponed Till Wednesday! NATAS Trying to Strike Deals with HLN and AOL for Broadcast!

For all of our soapers, and all of our colleagues in daytime programming, especially the soaps, the nominations announcements for the 39th Annual Daytime Emmys have been postponed for tomorrow!   Now, it looks like next Wednesday will be the day we will know what performers and series have a shot at daytime televisions highest honor.

Broadcasting & Cable spoke to sources close to NATAS and exclusively broke the news on the reason for the postponement.  It  looks like the academy is trying to broker and leverage last minute deals which would give the Emmys a television broadcast home on HLN, and an Internet and social media home with AOL!  The Daytime Emmys are set to be handed out on June 23rd at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

Here is what Broadcasting and Cable posted this afternoon:  “The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is hammering out a deal with Time Warner-owned HLN to be this year’s telecast partner for the annual Daytime Emmy Awards. NATAS also hopes to secure a social media partner for the awards, and sources say the organization’s board is targeting AOL. AOL is increasingly positioning itself to acquire and broadcast entertainment events. In February 2011, the portal acquired The Huffington Post, and on April 24, AOL announced the AOL On Network, which reaches nearly 60 million consumers across 14 curated online video channels.  None of the parties — NATAS, HLN or AOL — chose to comment.   The awards, which are taking place on Saturday, June 23, at the Beverly Hilton, are having an increasingly tough time staying relevant as daytime’s once glamorous and popular soap operas are being cancelled and replaced by talk shows.  Nominations for the Daytime Emmy Awards were expected to be released this Friday, May 4, but have been put off until Wednesday, May 9, in order to close these deals first.”

So what do you think of the news of the pending deals to give audiences around the country and the word a chance to see the Daytime Emmys this year?  Are you chomping at the bit to learn the nominees as much as we are?  We will all have to take a breath!  Make sure to come back to On-Air On-Soaps on nomination day, and the continuing developments on the Emmy ceremonies!

I hope someone broadcast this. I have been watching ABC soaps for 38 years faithfully. They have cancelled my favorite One Life to live. The least they can do is make sure All our favorite actors have one last shot at being reconized for all their hard work. Maybe ABC will realize they made a big mistake cancelling All My Children, and One Life To Live. And bring back Soaps at the parks at Disneyland, and Walt Disneyworld. What were you thinking???

Personally I think we’re 1 step closer to seeing our cancelled soaps back on. At least one of them. OLTL. I am not so sure of AMC although I would love to see them all back in production.I believe ABC Network is feeling the effects of the bad move. Several of the actors have gone on to other things but one never knows they may come back if that was offered to them.Stay possitive in thought, action and deed! General Hospital is really blowing the lid off the pot!!! Thank you writers you have been a blessing to all of… Read more »

OLTL is never coming back.

I cannot believe that people are wasting their time attempting to revive a deceased show that has 0 chance of ever coming back when they are 4 soap operas on the air that are struggling for survival and need our support.

However, I do agree with everybody that OLTL should grab all of the awards.

I didn’t give up on OLTL, but I certainly got tired of reading the same conversation about it on here, day in and day out. I don’t mind talking about it IF people were doing more than JUST TALKING about OLTL, like the fans gathering and calling the media and holding a New Conference…. but OLTL
EVERYDAY on here and no action…., nah. Life is too busy for that.

Good Luck to the nominee’s and OLTL and GH.

Hope all is well with you, haven’t chatted with you in awhile.

Heather, I have to respectfully disagree, I watch the soaps live every day,I am not wasting my time attempting to bring back one life to live I have watched the abc soaps for 49 years they were always there and so was I every day same time, same network, I think what the majority of us are pissed off at is the crappy programming that was put in the place of beloved soaps .Every day I come here several times a day hoping to find someone who cares as deeply as I do about the loss of all my children… Read more »

I am one of those working to save the genre and find a possible home for cancelled soaps to resume production. That being said, many of us are ALSO supporting the last four soap operas that are still on the air. I will be attending the UpFronts for ABC on May 15th in NYC…anyone else want to take some ACTION?

This could be the good news we have been waiting for, Some network to put the daytime emmys on,We are running out of time and this is one award show I don’t want to miss it will be the last award show One life to live and all my children will be in.And as I have said before I hope that One life to live takes home the gold for all the categories.

The good news is the Daytime Emmys will be broadcast so OLTL fans will have one last chance to enjoy wins for their soap and see the cast together.

I hope they can make a deal. I’m fine with watching online, but many people may not have that opportunity.

As for the delay of announcing the nominees, I’m anxious and I’m just a fan!

I think whichever network picks up the daytime Emmys will gain in the ratings, cause us soap fans would watch, and support them, ABC ratings have dropped because of cancelling AMC and OLTL, it lost us soap fans as viewers, and brought down their ratings by doing so.

I agree with everyone and I am hoping that ABC will bring back our soaps and realize they made a big mistake. I also hope OLTL will win all the awards for last year they really deserve it.

Every morning when I wake up I think I can hardly wait to see what GH is doing today. The show is actually the best show on ABC at all. I have been watching the daytime emmys since I was young and it really pisses me off that millions of loyal viewers cannot see their stars that they love dressed up and receiving an award for their stellar performances. What is wrong with an industry not caring about us. Are we crazy to like these shows? Why would anyone care? Until ABC makes some positive moves to daytime I am… Read more »

I’m hoping that it will be shown on a network also. I look forward to seeing my favorite actors all dressed up and receiving their awards. The soaps and the actors deserve all the recognition they can get.

Since I can not watch on HLN. I would love to download the show on the internet will I be able to?

If ABC were smart, it would preempt The Chew and GMA in the afternoon and broadcast the Emmys. OLTL takes the Emmy for best soap and ABC announces it made a terrible mistake canceling OLTL and decides to revive it. (I am not on drugs or delusional, but I might as well be.)

Thats ok david, It would be nice if that happened,hln,Is headline news that’s cnn isnt it?I believe so.Guess we hear more next week when the winners are announced and I hope one life to live has several of them.

Will any of the cast of OLTL or AMC come to the Emmys if they are not nominated? Since they are no longer employed by ABC wouldn’t they have to pay their own expenses?

Your questions are interesting. Hopefully one life to live is nominated for all the categories,Then we will find out if the cheap network abc will pay.We should be able to find out, right ?

I sure hope they are able to make a deal with HLN and AOL. I could never understand why in recent years SOAPNet wouldn’t host the Daytime Emmys. More ABC/D B.S. Anyway, I missed them last year because it was Father’s Day and out of respect to my husband and kids, I didn’t watch. That said, I knew that AMC & OLTL were ending and I vowed to watch them this year, even if it was really one big, fat, commercial for Las Vegas, like it has been in the past few years. Please give these industry troupers the respect… Read more »

MBmomof 3, Your Idea about soapnet is a good one, It would have been the perfect place to show the emmys, Only problem, ABC/DISNEY the rat channel owns soapnet so there goes your good Idea out the door. Its such a shame the we are going to loose soapnet for another kids channel, We have to many of them and only One soap channel that will be gone soon.

I personally think that they should make sure that not just the soap stars get the recognition that is deserved but that ONE LIFE TO LIVE, ALL MY CHILDREN actors should be up on that stage and be applauded for their strengths that they have overcome in this horrific outcome of their characters. I wonder if the actors would return. They have in some sense moved on. I watch B&B to see Jr. and old Skye. I watch GH to see Starr, McBain, hopefully Trevor and Roger. We believe that believing in ourselves we can bring back something. The soaps… Read more »

Public Relations Exec & Former CBS Watch Guru, Jeremy Murphy, New Book with Special Nod to ‘Santa Barbara’ Avail for Pre-Order

If you want an inside look into the colorful, often back-stabbing world of PR and entertainment, but with a very candid yet very humorous take, you are going to want to order and pick up your copy of Jeremy Murphy’s new book, F**k Off, Chloe, and as it turns out, the author himself includes a surprising tribute to the beloved Santa Barbara!

Murphy, who spent 14 years at CBS where he the creator and editor in chief of the high-profile magazine, CBS Watch, later launched a successful career with countless clients in his boutique PR agency, 360 bespoke.  The agency is known for clients in the fields of luxury, the arts, fashion/ beauty, hospitality, travel, media, start-ups and entrepreneurs.  In fact, former Days and RHOBH star, Lisa Rinna beauty brand, Rinna Beauty, has been one of his clients.

In the log lines for this new book, available for pre-order from Simon & Schuster, it details: ‘Public relations’ snarkiest publicist Jeremy Murphy expertly chronicles his hatred, love, indifference, amusement, and scorn for the profession in F*ck Off, Chloe. From entitled millennials to surly reporters, obnoxious clients, and cumbersome, color-coded “trackers,” Murphy takes a scalpel and glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape to the PR industry in a searing, hilarious, and pissy voice that his own psychiatrist finds “deeply concerning.” His collection of annoyances shed light on the industry’s idiosyncrasies, insanities, contradictions, and past due invoices, providing an illuminating window into the dirty world of public relations not even Xanax can help. Complementing the scathing prose are color-in illustrations by artist Darren Greenblatt, creator of the “Ugly Lives of Beautiful People” sketch series.’

Murphy told Michael Fairman TV as to why soap fans may want to check out the book: “Any Santa Barbarian will love this because it finally says what needs to be said: best.show.ever.”  Jeremy is in indeed a hard core Santa Barbara fan.

On a personal note, Michael Fairman shared: “I used to work with Jeremy when he was an editor-in-chief and commissioned me to write profiles of celebrities, and it was always a fun journey to collaborate with him. This new book spoofs PR, journalism, TV and media, in an honest, unapologetic, but hysterical way.”

To pre-order, F**k Off, Chloe click here and look for its release in store and everywhere in March of 2022.

So, intrigued to read what Jeremy shares about Santa Barbara and more? Comment below.
