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 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.

On Monday, Regis Philbin, who passed away at 88-years-old over the weekend, was remembered on morning television where he spent most of his career, by his former co-hosts.  On Live with Kelly and Ryan, an emotional Ripa along with Seacrest honored the man they had come to know

Ryan shared: “It’s been a very difficult and emotional day for all of us at Live. Kelly, I know a tough weekend for you especially because you worked with our dear friend, a friend that passed away over the weekend, Regis Philbin. A legend on television. A best friend to so many of us who didn’t even know him, across the country.”

Ripa, co-hosted Live! with Philbin for 11 years, said mentioned that she and her husband Mark Consuelos were lucky to have their children surrounding them over the weekend when they learned of Philbin’s death.

Through her tears, Kelly expressed:  “As people get older, you always know that certain things are inevitable, and passing away is one of those things, but Regis is one of the people that we all believed, I think, would somehow figure out a way around the inevitable. It was not in the cards.”

Meanwhile over on NBC, Kathie Lee Gifford appeared on the Today Show remembering her enduring friendship and working relationship with Regis. Gifford co-hosted Live with Regis and Kathie Lee for many years.

Overcome with emotion, Kathie Lee recalled her final visit with Philbin and his wife Joy during a visit to the East Coast. Gifford now lives in Tennessee.

Gifford shared how she called The Philbins and said, “Can we get together, can we have some lunch?’ So they came over about two weeks ago,  We just had the best time.”’

However, Kathie Lee noted after they said their goodbyes:“I just thought to myself, ‘Lord’, is that the last time I’m going to see my friend?’ Cause he was failing, I could tell.  I was just so grateful the Lord gave me that final time.”  She also shared moments with her talk with Joy after Regis’ passing, where Joy said,”Kathie he hadn’t laughed in a long, long time.  I was so worried about him.  The day that we came to have lunch with you was the last time I heard him laugh.”

On their on-screen partnership, Kathie Lee said of her time with Regis: “We always respected each other’s opinions so highly. You know, in all the years we were together, we never had one cross word.”

Watch below the segments from Live with Kelly and Ryan and The Today Show with Kathie Lee below as they remember and honor Regis Philbin.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
