The internet today has been abuzz with the difficulties NATAS has been facing finding a home for this year’s Daytime Emmys ,which according to TV Guide are set for June 23rd, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles and far away from the Vegas Strip,  which is a good thing according to several  key daytime actors, and us!

Then, this afternoon NATAS put out a tweet on their Daytime Emmys Twitter page announcing, “Daytime Emmy Awards.  Save The Dates to be announced tomorrow! STAY TUNED!”   We also hear rumblings that more information about the ceremonies could be revealed at that time.

Regarding the Vegas  Emmy production backlash, Daytime Emmy winner, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) stated, ” If the awards can’t air with dignity, they shouldn’t air at all.”   While Daytime Emmy winner, Peter Bergman (Jack) of The Young and the Restless went on to say in regards to last year’s telecast, “It was a vulgar Vegas nightmare.  The awards need to return to what they were years ago, a private, elegant event.”

Nominations will be announced on May 4th, and On-Air On-Soaps has faith that awards will be presented in some form this year, and hopefully in a proper forum to recognize the amazing talents in the entire spectrum of the daytime television field, which is badly needed in this current climate of cancellations.  We know many soapers, would be devastated if All My Children and One Life to Live do not get to be honored for the body of the work over the last four decades.

More to follow!

Last years emmys were a joke ,I couldnt wait for it to be over it was like a circus ,just awful, and to make things worse the 2 or 3 hours it was on the bold and the beautiful and the young and the restless were crammed down our throats and the other 4 soaps on abc and nbc were ignored and the music sucked,who ever was in charge of programming should never be allowed near a award show again it was the longest and the most boring emmy awards I have ever watched.

Well to be honest…they awards at Vegas were bad and as much as I love watching my favorites win (or sadly sometimes lose) I don’t want the actual performers/writers/directors etc. to go through another Vegas telecast SO I’m happy to see they will at least be taking place in LA.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
