Talk about your bad timing!  The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences revealed news on their upcoming 39th Daytime Emmy Awards presentation slated for June 23rd at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.    While we are still awaiting word on what type of ceremonies will actually occur,  a decision has been made this year to present two mainstay awards  of the Daytime Emmy acting categories, the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series and Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series, have been bumped to the Creative Arts Ceremonies to be handed out on June 17th, instead of the bigger and more prestigious Daytime Emmy Awards themselves!

And in a year when one of the most hotly contested categories occurs in the Younger Actor category, nominees such as Eddie Alderson of One Life to Live, who has a shot at winning in One Life’s final year with his episode where Matthew reveals he shot and killed Eddie Ford to Nora and Bo,  Chandler Massey of Days of our Lives, who has done stellar work in Will’s coming out storyline, Chad Duell, who was so heartbreaking as Michael admits he was raped on General Hospital, and GH’s Nathan Parsons, so wonderfully introspective in his Emmy reel as Ethan, will not have their name called in front at the Beverly Hills main event.    Same goes for the gals, with Y&R’s Christel Khalil, B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood and DAYS, Shelley Hennig and Molly Burnett!

Here is the current list of categories slated for presentation at the 39th Daytime Emmys though:  Drama Series, Lead Actress, Lead Actor, Supporting Actress, Supporting Actor, Writing Team and Directing Team.Outstanding New Approaches in Daytime Entertainment,  along with the best in talk show, legal/courtroom show, culinary and game show (and hosts), morning program, children’s performer and children’s animated program for the series and the hosts.

So what do you think about NATAS shifting the Younger Actor and Actress categories to the Creative Arts Emmys? Weigh-in! And then,  let us know who you want to win the gold in the two Younger categories!

Hate it, there killing the genre slowly but surely. I cant’ stand what has happened to such a wonderful group of actors, to be treated so badly. So many actors made their start on Soaps. We knew them before they became so famous. They all deserve an Emmy.

I am so disappointed and it’s NOT fair to the young actors. The Emmys have made the show nothing but commercialism and I for one won’t watch them… All the young actors deserve their time in the sun too. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr…….

Could be, If it’s not televised why would they care. The one thing I know I want to see the young stars get their awards the last award I care to see is who won the best talk show, Now that’s a waste of precious time. If we loose all the soaps, I don’t think that any one will care who wins the emmy in talk, news, food, or any of that garbage they are replacing the soaps with.

WOW, Even the emmys are getting cheaper, what the hell is wrong with these people , Oh I get it they have more respect for those everyday news, talk, food, celebrities we don’t care about, clothes we can’t afford shows, lets put the younger kids on the back burner. You know once the daytime soaps are gone, no one is going to give a crap about the daytime emmys, I care about the soaps I want to see them could care less about ellen, oprar, katie, kelly and ?, wende, God our afternoons are loaded with trash I think it’s… Read more »

Barb: I just wrote you a letter and sent it. I just ran across “this” post of your’s, because I wasn’t on the site to read, but JUST to post you. ‘ This post ‘ was 2 places above the post of yours I replied to. I just wanted to comment that your punctuation is close to excellente. LOL ALL your coma’s are in place. U only have one bo-bo (after the word people-your coma should be closer to the ‘e’ ). All the others are perfect, and I love it. Thank You!

PS. Sometime in March, someone listed a site on Youtube that you could go and watch General Hospital. I clicked on the link, and boy did it have ENTIRE episodes of GH on Youtube weeks back. Do you know that link or site, so that I can catch up to on GH for the weeks I didn’t see even though my living room and walls did?
Thanks.

Well about a year ago or maybe more Peter Bergman & Christian Le Blanc both thought their should not be a seperate category for them they should all be lumped together and I was one of the few that threw a fit about their comments. In other words no younger categories I said then that we sure feel threatened don’t we, politics in everything.

Hi Barbara, what’s up? How are you? Overwhelmed here. Been watchin GH over the last four days, AND b’oy……. has GH gotten GOOD!!!! It opens up to like 7 different segements before the music plays/ oppose to 3 or 4 segments, as before. So many,,,,, that you can’t wait for the show to start AND for each one to play. Other than that, I don’t come on this site much anymore. I am not one to can keep talking about the ‘same ol thing ‘ which is ” OLTL ” being off the air, and GH verses OLTL. Blah. I… Read more »

This is a shame. Not sure why such a decision is necessary. Are the awards even being televised? I hope at least they invite the younger nominees and give winners some attention that big night.

I always felt that award shows including the Emmys (daytime & primetime), the Tonys and the Oscars, that their main acting categories were Lead and Supporting.

The Primetime Emmys have 4 acting categories in their Creative Arts Ceremony:
– Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series
– Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series
– Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series
– Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series

Part of me feels if National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences had the chance, they would get rid of the Younger Actor/Actress categories and have the younger actors/actresses compete in the Supporting categories.

I can’t stand it, how can they award Emmys to talk show crap artists, all they do is repeat what I heard on a show 2 hours ago. And, oh, how they love to talk about themselves….hey, I don’t care what you did or who you saw over the weekend, puts me to sleep. Sleeping most of the day isn’t good for me. The soaps are the only shows worth giving Emmys to…..that’s where the real talent is and we need MORE of them.

It’s unbelievable and wrong. These young actors are worthy of being part of the larger ceremony. Why treat them like outcasts? I feel like this is just another way for soaps to get screwed. Shame on the Daytime Emmys for doing this.

I am really disappointed. I am rooting for Chandler to win, and it’s a shame that it won’t be a part of the ‘regular’ show. If the ceremony is televised, I hope that they will at least show video clips of the winners acceptance speeches, then again, why move the categories at all. It just seems that the NATAS has given up on Daytime, just like some of the network exec’s have, to a certain extent.

Daytime award shows never got the same respect as the Country, Music, Tony’s, Dog, Cat, Kentucky Durby, kid , Reality, etc stupid shows. Doesn’t matter that the daytime actors are better trained and many of the famous people got their start in the business. They are always treated like dirt. Makes me so mad daytime soaps are neglected this way. It’s funny though they keep the children shows , judge shows, talk shows still in the award show but get rid of the younger “daytime” actors when they arep the ones who should be front an center. What is wrong… Read more »

This is so wrong. The younger category deserves their time to shine. What the Emmys can move is their talk shows, cooking shows, children’s shows, etc. Practically all of ABC’s daytime lineup. And there needs to be tributes to OLTL and AMC.

These younger actors are as deserving as their more “seasoned” counterparts at receiving recognition for their outstanding work at the MAIN Emmy event when the other actors receive their awards. It just doesn’t make sense to include acting awards in the Creative ceremony, which groups together a completely different set of achievements. This is a terrible, terrible decision.

I think it stinks! They take animated series over live entertainers no matter what the age. Let me tell them one thing night time entertainment is not more important than our soaps are in the daytime. In face I watch more soaps than nite time TV. Who are these people who think they know what we the viewers want to see? They are wrong & that is why so many watch shows on the computer. Idiots are putting on the shows on TV.

DAYS, DOOL! Their First Year to red carpet with 15 Nods. Two, highly anticipated wins, are in this category. Chandler Massey and Molly Burnett. Will and Melanie. Sorry OLTL, & AMC fans… DAYS has never had this many Nods… and these two should win. I read in the soap digest, that Burnett may not be renewing her contract… i’m sorry to hear this. She’s so good as Dr. Carly Manning’s daughter… and i enjoy her scenes, if we ever get them again… with Maggie. with all due respect to the other nominations for best younger actor… their emmy reels were… Read more »

Not smart! They do this with Grammys and Oscars and by doing so depriving the nominees and winners their time in the spotlight. I would like to see Chad Duell win for his memorable performance all year on GH. Jacqueline MacInnes Wood also deserves to win for her portrayal of Steffy – she has good comedic talent and her heartwrenching performance dealing with her marriage break-up has been award worthy.

The only real reason to watch the Daytime Emmys this year (assuming that they will actually be televised at all) is the younger actor category. Figuring out which stellar performance the amazing Chandler Massey or the equally hot Chad Duell, is the only real interesting award category this year. Who’s in charge of this bonehead decision? I just bet Brian Frons/Disney/Ann Sweeney/the dreadful ABC is somehow responsible. This is a great year for folks that hate soap operas.

Totally sucks! They are just as important as any other kind of actor..more so as they have to do their show 5 days a week with not much money. They can’t do ‘retakes’ like other stars.
The ones in charge of this have no brains or compassion for these young actors, they should be ashamed of themselves!

This is just terrible! I am begining to feel as if there is a conspiracy to kill the genre on all fronts! Did the assholes over at abc get the ball rolling? The nominees in this catagory all gave stellar preformances this year and to not have the honor of getting the award at the same event as their costars is an outrage! It’s not bad enough the way oltl was snubbed and the possibility that the show won’t even be aired. I am really disgusted! This is getting personal.

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.
