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.

Here are the winners recapped after the jump!

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! 🙁

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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 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.

Kelly Ripa Talks On Her New Memoir ‘Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories’

Talk show host and All My Children alum, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) is opening up about her life and times in her highly-anticipated memoir available now, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.

Ripa chatted exclusively with PEOPLE who got some of intel and dish on what’s included in the book.

Kelly told PEOPLE, when she landed the gig as the new co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, with the late Regis Philbin back in 2001, she felt like she was “getting shot out of a cannon.”  Ripa was also appearing on All My Children at the same time.

She tells the story of when her agent called with the offer, Ripa was told: “They want you to know who your boss is. It was very ominous, and it did not feel good.”  Her agent also said the show didn’t want her, “bringing an entourage.” She brought two people. “I came with hair and makeup,” Kelly says. “It was not an unusual thing for people on a television show to show up with.”

She added that Regis greeted her with executive producer, Michael Gelman, saying: “Uh-oh, Gelman, it’s got an entourage.” It?!  Kelly expressed that she “felt horrible.  He was probably trying to be funny, but at the same time it felt like a pile-on.”

As for Philbin’s attitude at the time, Kelly shared, “I understand that probably he didn’t want a co-host, but the network wanted me to be the co-host and I didn’t think I should pass up that opportunity. I don’t think it was fair to him. But it was also not fair to me.”

The actress-talk show host-producer also talked on her marriage to Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo), whom she met while both were on All My Children, sharing that they were, “too young to get married! On paper it should not have worked and when it didn’t work, we really worked at it. We fought for our marriage when it would have been easier to quit and throw in the towel.”

According to the book publisher, HarperCollins:  “In ‘Live Wire’, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. Whether recounting how she and Mark (Consuelos) really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

So, will you be ordering your copy of Kelly’s memoir? Let us know in the comment section below.

Eva LaRue’s Stalker Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison

In a harrowing situation spanning 12 years, a man who threatened former All My Children, Santa Barbara, and Y&R favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria, ex- Margot, ex-Celeste) and her daughter, Kaya was sentenced to 40 months in prison.

James David Rogers, 58, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John A. Kronstadt for over a decade of threatening letters and phone calls about torture, rape and death to LaRue and her daughter.

Rogers had pleaded guilty in April to two counts of mailing threatening communications, one count of threats by interstate communications and two counts of stalking.  According to court documents, all of this began in March 2007 until Rogers eventually was arrested in November 2019.  At the beginning of his stalking spree, LaRue’s daughter, Kaya was only five-years-old.

According to Deadline, Eva gave a “tearful victim impact statement, telling the judge in L.A. federal court that she has undergone therapy since the harassment began in order to deal with feelings of fear and paranoia.”  She added, “We didn’t know if he would show up on our doorstep. We will think about him for a lifetime. The fear is with me forever.”

Photo: JPI

The judge has ordered Rogers to self surrender on October 12th to begin his sentence at a federal prison in Ohio.

Eva won a Daytime Emmy back in 2020 for her guest star turn on The Young and the Restless, and is best-known to primetime viewers for her role in CSI: Miami.

Soap Vet, Broadway Star and Artistic Director, Robert Lupone Passes Away at 76

Bob Lupone, the brother of Broadway Icon, Patti Lupone, and who is best-known to soap opera fans as con artist Zach Grayson on All My Children (1984-1985) has died at the age of 76.

The actor, and artistic director of Off-Broadway’s acclaimed MCC Theatre for over 40 years, passed away Saturday, due to complications from his three year battle with pancreatic cancer.

Photo: MCC Theatre

Ironically, Bob was best known on Broadway as Zach in A Chorus Line which landed him a Tony Award nomination in 1976, and he also received a Daytime Emmy nomination for his other role of Zach on All My Children in 1985.  The murder of Zach Grayson was quite the murder mystery and trial; bringing in many suspects to the story.

In addition to All My Children, throughout his soap career, Lupone held roles on: Search for Tomorrow as Tom Bergman, Ryan’s Hope as Chester Wallace, Another World as Neal Cory, Loving as Leonard Brill/Charley Nichols, and Guiding Light as Leo Flynn.  He also appeared in primetime TV roles including: The Sopranos, Sex and the City, and several roles in the Law and Order franchise.

Lupone made his feature film debut in the 1973 musical adaptation of Jesus Christ Superstar playing the Apostle James, and two years later got the Broadway role of his lifetime playing Zach in A Chorus Line after convincing creator and director Michael Bennett to let him play the part after the original actor departed the show.

A decade later, LuPone would co-found the Off-Broadway theatre company, MCC Theater, with Bernard Telsey and William Cantler.  MCC was founded as an artists collective designed to offer peer based classes and playwright development and has launched several successful shows that went on to great success.

LuPone is survived by his wife, Virginia; his son, Orlando; sister, Patti; and brother, William.

Below, take a look at the suspects in the Zach Grayson murder case on All My Children, followed by the 1976 performance by Robert and the cast of A Chorus Line on The Tony Awards, and last, a scene as AMC’s Zach around the 6 minute mark in the video.

Now, share your condolences to the Lupone family on Bob’s passing, and your remembrances in the comment section.
