courtesy/ABC

The results are in from our Daytime Emmy polls where we asked you, our soapers, to tell us who you would like to see win the most in the Outstanding Lead Actor, Lead Actress, and Outstanding Drama Series categories on tonight’s 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Telecast on HLN!

In the Lead Actor category there was a tie!  You chose General Hospital’s Anthony Geary and One Life to Live’s Robert S. Woods, and in second place was GH’s Maurice Benard!

In the Lead Actress category voters  went with One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak who had 37.55% of the votes and in second place was Crystal Chappell for her performance as Carly Manning on Days of our Lives with 29.37 of the votes.  Looks like the fans are favoring the talented performers from One Life, and also looking for a record seventh Emmy to land in the hands of Geary and Slezak!

And finally in the Outstanding Drama Series category,  the fans voted for General Hospital with 49% of the vote with Days of our Lives with 21.64% in second place, and All My Children in third place with close to 16% of the vote.

Let’s see if your picks match the academy’s picks tonight starting on the Emmy telecast at 8PMEST/5PMPST! And what do you think of On-Air On-Soaps site users choices?  Let us know!

Oh come on debi, baby steps. However, we only have two and a half months left, and a lot of people go on vacation, we have to kill that good afternoon america like we killed the revolution. That 2 o’clock spot has to go to general hospital.

what do you mean we only have 2 1/2 months left??
In my world, when abc cuts GH, it will be picked up by another network if we can get the ratings up.

am i the only one somewhat concerned that the Revolution is being replaced with a new show “Good Afternoon America”? I was under the impression that when the Revolution finally went away, a spot would be guaranteed for General Hosptal since Katy Couric will be taking their timeslot. And since ABC seems to be content with the lackluster ratings of the Chew, I would guess that’s not going anywhere. What do you think, Michael?

No, your not the only one, I am very concerned and we have to continue to boycott abc/disney, we need to do to good afternoon america as we did to that revolution show. ABC/DISNEY LIED TO US.

You really need to research the facts. GH will be moving to a 2:00 pm time slot in September. The promos have already started airing on the east coast.

according to their advertising, Good Afternoon America is taking the 2:00 spot in July. I have a sneaky feeling that if the reviews are good, you can say bye-bye to GH. Are the promos for GH at 2 brought to you by ABC?????
gee…….

Guest

The promos are saying that starting july 9th, Good afternoon america will be taking the 2 o’clock spot, if it works out and the rating are good and general hospital goes down connie is right bye-bye general hospital.

I am extemely pissed-off……………The music played each time the show came back from a commerical & after the person received their award & was leaving the stage .

On the emmy’s SAT… She has big ones………………………………….Erika Slezsak is a class act……., She is a team player…This is what Ms. Lucci lacks………….TERRIBLE & BORING SHOW..The music made me BARF !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Susan thanks for updating me I just deleted it without watching it you want to know why OLTL did not get a nomination and AMC did not get the emmy because then they would have had to admit they cancelled the wrong shows they did not want egg on their face. And I like GH but I would have preferred AMC have got it I thought it was just as good I hated the Jake storyline always will!!!

Worst Emmy’s Ever!!! And was that supposed to be a tribute to AMC & OLTL? What a freaking joke!!!

barbara t

Yeah, It was all Erricka Kane. Wasn’t the worse, But it sure was boring and long, I give HLN a break they only had 3 weeks to put it together, Wasn’t that music horrible? I do give 3 cheers for general hospital and Oscar the grouch, ANd his GARBAGE CAN.

Susan Lucci was hogging the whole thing.. Did you see when she presented a award & all the winners came up on stage Susan was going on her tippy toes so she could be seen on camera………………What a HAM!!!!! Erika Sleszak has a lot of class……

I don’t blame hln at all for anything. They aired the show. The show was all about promoting GH and dissing OLTL.
Whoever set out to do that, succeeded.

I was waiting for the tribute for AMC & OLTL….All they did is have Susan Lucci come up and say a little something with Erika Sleszak & Cameron Masterson,,,I was expetecting more then that…I thought they would show some favorite clips from AMC & OLTL……………………………………It was a terrible tribute….Not worthy of AMC & OLTL…………………….I liked seeing Erika Sleszak…But I wish they would have done something more than just talking about it…..That was VERY disappointing to say the least…………..I rate the daytime emmy at about a three in a half….Pretty CRAPPY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok I just watched a clip of the Susan Lucci thing! Sorry Susan you stepped on it this time the show was an ensemble act no one character makes a soap and well I am disappointed. I did read on a blog that ABC would not release the clips do not know if this is true. Sad.

Why was there no video with the tribute presentation with LaLucci, Cameron, Erika??It was meaningless.Why was Bethany the non-talented reality “star” and i mean that with no praise and glory, on the show as a presenter, she was as horrible as her talk show, hopefully it will be short-lived. This production of the show was terrible from start to finish, starting with the ailing muppett and Anderson Cooper. It was a sign of things to come.This show was horrible, more frightful moments of acceptance speeches, too many kids, too many non-acting people on stage, the one highlight of the show… Read more »

Hey Charles, I agree with you about everything you said. But, Come on, I Don’t care about Anderson copper either, He represents those awful talk shows, but give Oscar a break, I enjoyed him and he is a daytime star, I thought the Garbage can was fitting, given all the GARBAGE emmys that were handed out.

Yes it was VERY DISAPPOINTING……………And it was one of the worst daytime emmy award shows…I remember more better daytime emmy shows in the past….This one was a fluke………………………………STINKEROO!!!!!!!!! I was looking forward in seeing memorable clips from AMC & OLTL…..What a RIP- OFF show !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The beginning of the show the muppet character was so STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The show was a ZERO in my book !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great night for GH, and I’m very happy about that. There were some things wrong with the show. The stupid music, the lack of clips, and the joke of a tribute to AMC and OLTL. But I’d rather have a show like this than no show at all, or the garbage we saw from Las Vegas the past two years. Those were the worst Emmys ever. Tonight was far from the worst.

susan M.

I agree with you about the stupid music….The tribute for AMC & OLTL yes it was a JOKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Past emmy shows were much BETTER… What happen with this one………………………………………Poorly put together……….Like it was just thrown together at the last minute…In my opinion………..

Dan, I agree with you. Yes, there were things on the show that definitly could have been better ( the three things you mentioned are at the top of my list too) but overall it wasn’t too bad for HLN’s first try at producing the awards show. It was good enough that I hope they will broadcast this show again next year. Somebody has to!

Didn’t have HLN but after hearing how bad the award show was and the winners, I was GLAD I didn’t see the award show. AMC and OLTL went home empty handed was a UTTER & COMPLETE TRAVESTY there. GH winning everything UGHH! Was glad Y&R, B&B and DAYS won. DAYS winning Writing was a SHOCK but I was happy they won; an award they haven’t won since the 70s. That’s pure sadness there!

The Emmy’s just solidify my beliefs that the genre is dead. There is absolutely no respect for daytime dramas anymore. OLTL being overlooked for best show was just too much for words! When the nominations came out I could not believe they didn’t get the nod for bast show! I’m not sure of the show will be able to make nominations next year as I don’t know what the cut off date is but if they do garner a nom they will loose. Oh and HEATHER TOM!!!!! Really??????????

And someone please tell me what the heck did the alligator, porcupine, cockroaches and other animals have to do with with presentations that Debbie Gibson & Company were making? And why weren’t there more stars presenting awards? Plus it didn’t even seem like a lot of stars showed up for the event…..if they don’t show, then what’s the point of having the show in the first place? You can’t be a star, and complain about how the industry is overlooking you, then not even show up for the award ceremony…shows that you think as little of your industry as the… Read more »

I think that HLN had to come up with last minute entertainment they only had 3 weeks to put it together, It is pretty bad that they had to get in touch with a alligator, I wonder who his agent was, It , the alligator should be living the life of riley in a pond or swamp in florida along with the other animals that didn’t belong on a leash, what those two people had to do with daytime I don’t know But they did not belong there. It was boring wasn’t it? I was very up set that only… Read more »

Yes they were good at it, during all their shows they would advertize the emmys where going to be on, They showed more ads then any of the other networks EVER did. Maybe next year if they carry them we can give them some advice on what to do and what not to do, and to be sure not to ask Ericka Kane to show up, or the alligator, throw in debby gibson and that frankle woman who did the reality show, What was she there for?

Susan Lucci proved what a real diva she is. How many times can a woman mention her character’s name and praise all about herself? The audacity not to mention any of her fine co-stars that helped make her what she is/was. Personally, I didn’t think she was the best actor on the show, just there longer and because she catered to Agnes Nixon. They should have had David Canary out there instead of that Cameron Matheson guy. The guy that played Trevor, the women who played Janet and Natalie were more natural in front of the camera. I thought Susan’s… Read more »

The awards show were last minute and looked well last. Poor writing. I think Erika Sleazak and Susan Lucci were put in a horrible position. Lucci is rumoured to be miffed they didn’t show clips (because ABC wouldn’t release them). She did what she was told and read what they wrote for her. I agree it focussed to much on Erica but the show wrote it. Sleazak did seem emotionless about the whole thing ( I do think she deserved an Emmy) and truly Cameron Mathison had no business be up there other than he maybe good looking and he… Read more »

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
