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.

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.

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.

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.
