DAYTIME EMMYS: B&B Wins Drama Series, GH's Wright & ATWT's Park take top acting honors!

The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards have just concluded from The Las Vegas Hilton and On-Air On-Soaps was on the red carpet, in the press room, and the backstage Winner’s Walk and will be bringing you extensive coverage this coming week.  But for now, let’s take a look at the major Daytime Drama winners tonight!

B&B took home the Drama Series prize three years in a row with tonight’s victory for the homeless story interwoven with Stephanie’s cancer.  Laura Wright of General Hospital took home her first Daytime Emmy in 20 years in soap operas for her role of Carly, and Michael Park (who was not present at the ceremony, as he is currently performing on Broadway) won his second consecutive Emmy for Lead Actor for his role as Jack Snyder on the now defunct As the World Turns. Biggest shocker of the night….Brittany Allen besting GH fave, Lexi Ainsworth for the Younger Actress award.  B&B’s Scott Clifton also broke his Emmy curse and finally won in his last year of eligibility in the Younger Actor category.

GH’s Jonathan Jackson won his highly predicted and much-deserved Supporting Actor Emmy for his role of Lucky Spencer.  This is Jackson’s fourth Emmy win and first in Supporting.  And B&B’s Heather Tom, won her third Emmy for her role of Katie on B&B in the Supporting Actress category.  Y&R’s head writer, Maria Arena Bell won her first Emmy ever along with The Young and the Restless Writing Team.

I am so excited that Michael Park won! He is an awesome actor and deserved the win! Congrats to Michael Park! All his fans are anxiously awaiting his reaction to the news! I’m sure he’ll say something wonderful about his phenomenal on-screen partner Maura West! They were magic together. CARJACK forever! Way to go MIKEY!

I’m happy GH took home some awards, specially glad for Laura Wright first nomination and win, well deserved. congrats to all the other winners as well.

JAMES SCOTT snubbed again 🙁

AGREED!

James Scott should’ve won!! He’s AMAZING!! 🙂 Hopefully with the new writers Days will come back next year and kick some A**!!!!!! The Emmy’s were HORRIBLE last night! I can’t believe they didn’t show any clips of the nominees?! They just quickly rushed thru their names with a quick pic. That’s ridiculous if you ask me! These actors/actresses put in alot of hard work and long hours to entertain us with their great performances and they get treated this way on Emmy night……that’s a bunch of BS! The show was basically about Oprah, talk/game shows and Vegas! 🙁

I am so happy that Laura Wright won!!! I didn’t want to make a predicition I just wanted her to win because she is so talented and I like her so much! That is the best win of the evening! Woohoo as Laura would say on twitter!

I was happy to see her win also! 🙂

Happy for Laura Wright and Brittany Allen two of my favs.

the fact one life to live didn’t win anything is pretty sad,i was hoping someone from there would of won…but glad that amc and general hospital got something

OLTL was widely considered to be one of the best shows of 2010. No love last night. The show gave some love to Susan Lucci, but what about the reigning Emmy champ Erika Slezak. The show featured no clips, showed almost nobody in attendance other than Susan Lucci, did not show scenes from the nominated shows. It was all about a commercial for Las Vegas and a telethon. Byy far the worst Emmy show I have seen in my life.

A lot of ties this year.

I know…..that was strange! Usually don’t see that many!

I know how much you love soaps Michael but this was the worst, very worst Daytime Emmy show ever. Daytime was but a footnote in this Vegas commercial and overdone homage to Oprah. It’s nothing new but it is clear the networks block voted and not all of the winners were the best in their categories. Showing not one single second of anyone’s work was a slap in the face of daytime fans.

Daytime got the bum’s rush and the results of the winners was almost totally unsatisfying to me.

I do hope you got some good interviews and pictures from the daytime people. At least I know you won’t concentrate on what we have no interest in.

The broadcast was the worst one to-date. Nothing more than a 2 hour commercial for Las Vegas. Had very little to do with daytime, or the great performers who make sometimes sloppy writing believable. They really deserved so much better.

very very very VERY happy for CBS. Congrats Y&R, B&B and ATWT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kinda funny that CBS hosted the Emmy’s

I don’t think it matters who hosted the Emmy’s!!!

Although the awards show itself was less than great, at least there was one. Again it seemed more infomercial than industry celebration. I still do not understand the lack of details (clips, star power from daytime dramas) and why create a new award and stall the show with a tribute to someone who was not there (Oprah!) and who epitomizes daytime. And who was writing for Wayne Brady? Never has a talented man looked so adrift. Do I dare mention the unfunny Shemar Moore-Susan Lucci bit? Anyway, I am pleased for most part with winners and greatly touched and proud that Michael Park of AS THE WORLD TURNS was recognized. In a way, it is a win for the entire Oakdale team. Sorry the finale did not win a writing award. It was lovely. I am still scratching my head over Heather Tom’s win and surprised (happily) on the Brittany Allen victory. I always thought she did a fine job and remain baffled by the decision to recast her. Did anyone else find the number of ties suspicious? Still unsure about THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL winning Best Drama as it seems they highlight only one or two well-crafted eps when the rest of the year’s run is adrift with nonsense. Soaps will remain strong but likely in another medium (the web?) but I hope those remaining will embrace legacy characters, histories, diversity, and some dose of reality to maintain and to build momentum. I love the genre.

I am very upset that Lexi Ainsworth did not get the award…she was robbed there is no way BA material was better than Lexi’s. However I am happy that Laura and Jonathan brought home some awards.

I know! I was completely shocked! I felt so bad for her, almost glad they didnt’ show reaction shots, since EVERYONE predicted she’d win.

Hats off to the winners, especially Y&R for taking home best writing and best direction; eat your heart out MAB haters!! But sad to see that Doug Davidson, Tricia Cast and Emily O’Brien didn’t win their respective awards. Doug and Tricia have been a long time coming and are VERY deserving, as is O’Brien.

Ditto!!

I have to agree with a lot of people little weary of Susan Lucci!

OLTL nominated for 12 awards and wins 0?! The award show was awful. No clips of soap operas, no clips of performances, no memorials?! Nothing but a two hour promo for Las Vegas. Disgusting.

I agree. I was mad that I wasted 2 hours of my life. There probably won’t be a daytime emmy broadcast anymore now that OLTL and AMC will be gone. That was OLTL last chance, and we were robbed of getting to celebrate. At least AMC had a really stupid Erica Cane wedding skit. OLTL usually dominates the creative craft awards. This was fixed. Not even best original song.

Last year’s Daytime Emmys were atrocious. It appears this year’s event was just as bad. I suppose, with so few soaps left, that the show needs to promote something other than daytime TV. 🙁

Congratulations to Michael Park! I adore that man! He has done some stellar work over the years. It was great to see him win last year, and a wonderful night cap on his years with ATWT by winning again. 🙂

the emmy’s were awful, who produce that 2 hour commercial for LAS VEGAS? or the awful infomercial for jabot cosmetic? how cheesy, it was really done bad, who ever produce it should stick to late night informecials. and cbs should stay out of doing the daytime emmy’s ..

I can’t see that video of Laura Wright too many times! She is so deserving and it is just the best win!!!

I miss the clips of the actors/actress and the memorials for those gone but they haven’t shown that for a few years now anyway. It’s a sad commentary on the status of soaps when the Daytime Emmys hardly showcase them.

By the way….what was Shemar Moor doing? I was waiting for a punch line. Lucci looked unsure of what was happening. Was that a ‘tribute’? Replacing the heads of her husbands with other daytime folk? Awkward!

Over the moon happy that JP and her writing team of ATWT did NOT win. Even more happy that CG did not get any recognition. That’s what happens when producers and writers have no respect for their loyal fans. Karma is a bitch, comes to bite you back big time.

Susan Lucci Reveals She Was Contacted to Gauge Interest in Becoming ‘The Golden Bachelorette’

All My Children icon and Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement honoree, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), apparently was being considered for the lead in the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelorette.

Making this all the more intriguing is Lucci admitted she really enjoyed The Golden Bachelor’s season and has become a fan and thus a part of ‘Bachelor Nation.’

Although former ‘Golden Bachelor’ contestant Joan Vassos was the ultimate pick by ABC and the producers of The Golden Bachelorette, Lucci told PEOPLE that the show reached out to her people.

Susan shared, “I believe that they contacted my publicist and it wasn’t for me.” She added, “I watched The Golden Bachelor, and I really enjoyed watching The Golden Bachelor. This is a new addiction for me.”

And a few years back. her assistant got Lucci hooked on The Bachelor, as she expressed on the dating series, “I was immediately engaged. I cared. I wanted to know more about these people.”

The outlet shared that they did reach out to ABC and Warner Bros. about potential interest in Susan. However, they did not respond. A source then told the publication that Lucci was not offered a role.

For Susan, finding a second chance at love is an interesting proposition; given that she had the most incredible and enduring 53-year marriage to her late husband and manager, Helmet Huber, who passed away at 84-years-old back in March of 2022.

So, what do you think of Susan being contacted to see if she was interested in becoming ABC’s ‘Golden Bachelorette’ for the senior dating-reality series? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.
