I hope GH submitted a dramatic episode as the other show they were able to submit for consideration, to balance things out. Like the show when Oscar died. I absolutely loved the Christmas Carol show, but I seem to recall them not doing too well in the past when they submitted gimmicky episodes, like the years when they submitted shows from the Nurses Ball. The years they won for Best Drama, I think it was for more dramatic, emotional material. I don’t know that the “variety show” type stuff plays that well with the Emmy voters.

I am really disappointed that GH submitted the Christmas carol episode as one of it’s two episodes; the other episode, Oscar’s death, was the very best episode on daytime last year. I am hoping GH can win despite such a poor second episode selection. I get depressed at how many people are predicting Y&R, which submitted two episodes from Neil’s death. The show was mostly awful in 2019 – a mess – and I resent it went shows get rewarded for choosing a strong reel despite having had a poor year overall. I hope it doesn’t win and would be… Read more »

I don’t see anyone beating Y&R for Best Drama! Kristoff St. John’s death is STILL rocking the daytime world PLUS Y&R did a great job writing out his character.

If it were solely based on the clip released, Young & Restless by a landslide. Peter Bergman and Eileen Davidson shine in those scenes. So natural, so moving, such emotion — what daytime drama does best.

blech ! on GH ; for submitting ; the dumbass lame Michael Easton “rendition” of , what? no fuss no muss on his hair, and that oh so lame , smirk !!!! Thank God I missed that ep. @GH certainly has made B&B and DAYS look that much better. which isn’t much who ever for gods sake would watch a whole hour of ???? “PUSH !!! ” and then see her COMA’d. which is certainly what would have happened sooner w/watching Jenny Bear… come to .. after a year long lapse…. and/or sleep… who wanted more COMA’d for Jenny Bear…… Read more »

Who should win? DAYS. The time jump breathed fresh air into the show and into the genre. The payoffs continue.
Who will win? Y&R because the Neil episodes they submitted were gold, but they were the only bright spot in a year when the writing on this show hit a devastating rock bottom from which it has not risen.

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.
