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.

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. This is the last year for all my children and one life to live and I will hate it if we cant watch it .Even though I will have to by an extra box of tissues because even the mention of one life to live will upset me.And if one life to live doesnt win anything again this year it will upset me even more.

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.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
