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.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
