Yesterday, On-Air On-Soaps previously announced the new date for the upcoming 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards which will be handed out on Sunday, April 26th 2015.  NATAS has not announced a deal with a television home as of yet, but is noted to be in heavy discussions.

Meanwhile, there have been a few category additions that will allow more performers from the soaps to be included:  First, there will now be a new acting category for soap web series performers:  Outstanding Performer in a New Approaches Drama Series. This category will recognize the work of an actor or actress only appearing on a New Approaches Drama Series.  The award will be for a lead or supporting role.

Secondly, as previously reported but with some new additional info, there will now be a category for Outstanding Special Guest Performer in a Drama Series.  This award will recognize the work of an actor or actress who has made a limited number of appearances on a Daytime Drama during the 2014 Calendar year.  This does not mean, the only well-known names can compete, but anyone who has been in a guest role.

Finally, in the Pre-Nomination round where Daytime Drama performers have to submit clips of their work to get through to the first round of voting, now comes word that this year, while the reel can be up to 4 minutes total running time, and it now consist of any clips from up to two episodes from the 2014 calendar year.  This was changed from last year, when actors could only submit two scenes. 

So, what do you think of the category additions?  And the Pre-Nomination clip change?  Do you think it will help your favorite actor?  And, who are some of the names you can think of that could vie for the New Approaches or the Guest Performer category? Share your thoughts below!

Yup – if she doesn’t take that statuette home it will be a travesty. Donna is mesmerizing in this role and she’s the best looking 73 year old on the face of the earth. Damn, she looks good.

Not going to happen.

Sharon Case has fallen long out of favor with the Emmy panel. It’s been 11 years since they have nominated her for anything.

All good. The key is in the presentation and production. A shoddy cheap awards show does no one favors. I still sigh when I recall recent efforts on line and HLN and the miserable ways the cancelled soaps were remembered during those shows. The lack of star power in the programs or even attendance by other nominees is disappointing. This is a major doing. I want the powers that be to treat it as such or just do away with it.

Seriously, the trophy/engraving business in Hollywood must be very lucrative! So many awards… but daytime gets this one opportunity.

Just ‘cry’, ‘scream’ and you have emmy worthy scenes. Isn’t there suppose to be more? Where are the subtleties?

Alison Sweeny and James Scott from EJ’s nightmare ep. Ali also did great work when EJ died.

MamaCoppola

They should both not only be nominated, but should win. The scenes that they have done the last few months have been amazing but the scenes when EJ died are definitely Emmy worthy.

these two… along with the ep when it was just the two of them… featured
ala… whos’s afraid of Virginia Wolf’ : shakespearean…. Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor

submit those two eps…. and this had better be a sure fire WIN WIN for both

GH has been stellar. My guess is that Frank V. learned his lesson with picking submissions and GH is going to SWEEP this year because that was just a joke what happened last time.

With only four soaps still on network, adding some new categories might beef up the talent that would attend the ceremony— I like the idea of giving web soaps their own acting award. Some great performers might not have bother submitting their work believing they had no chance against established network soaps– so that should encourage them to submit clips. Guest role was long overdue— By the sounds of it, it seems NATAS is trying to make up for last few years of neglecting their members who work on daytime shows, and are trying to give them the respect they… Read more »

I only watch the soaps from daytime tv.. And I watch them at night.
I don’t watch game and talk and cooking shows..
so– I have zero joy in watching them get awards and I don’t watch it..

I do try to watch the soap awards, separate them out of the daytime junk tv ..
(have to time it just right lol ..

Wish there were just Soap Opera awards ..

Are the EMMYs in April already because they are finally smart enough to cancel this disastrous soap? Michael, why are you all pretending DAYS is still going strong? It’s pretty clear that ever since last summer (2013) Corday seems eager to destroy (successfully) his own show, most characters and the storylines. And to piss-off all his viewers in the process. Why?

I am happy to see the guest and the online only categories. Hoping for a much better produced and classier awards show than recent years.

Guest actor……depending on the number of shows Eileen Davidson could be in this category maybe even as the character Susan. Along with Donna Mills, Robin Matson (Heather Weber), or Constance Towers (Helena) Fred Willard on B&B, or some of the vet actors on Y&R.

MEREDITH BAXTER is a shoe-in for Emmy for Guest Performer on Y&R. Her work has been absolutely fantastic since she started. You’d think she’d be there for years! I hope she stays on with the cast for a long time; Y&R needs it!

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Robert Clary, DAYS, Y&R and ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ Favorite, Passes Away at 96

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Clary, best known to primetime fans for his role as  Cpl. Louis LeBeau, on the comedy series, Hogan Heroes, passed away on Wednesday according to his granddaughter, Kim Wright, who informed the Hollywood Reporter.  Robert was the last surviving member of the iconic cast.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.

But first, watch Robert talking about working with Bill Hayes on Days of our Lives, and his appearance in Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Lifetime Achievement Award package at the Daytime Emmys (produced by Michael Fairman).
