For those who watched the incredible work of Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard) during the 45 episode online revival of All My Children in 2013,  you won’t be seeing her name on pre-nom list for this year’s 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards competition!  Morgan took to her Twitter account to explain her decision of why she is not entering her name! 

The talented and beloved Morgan related: ” I’ve decided not 2 have my name submitted 4 Emmy consideration this year cuz I just really, really want 2 move on.  The many months of being told we’re on hiatus but would B coming back & then snatching the rug from under us & the fans has been very emotional. So right now the head space I’m in is just completely distancing myself from AMC w/regards of an Emmy consideration. I will 4 ever B grateful 4 the years of playing “Angie” beautifully created by our beloved Agnes Nixon & our most amazing cast will always hold a special place in my heart… Darnell, Mickey, Sal, Cady, Thorsten, Vincent… just to name a few!  However, with the end happening in the way that it did, for right now, I just want to remove any reminders of our untimely end & to be honest I don’t need an Emmy 2 recognize how much U all loved the work I was able 2 bring 2 U… Your tweets said it all & that’s “Emmy” enough for me…Smile!”

So, what do you think of Debbi’s decision?  Are you disappointed she won’t be possibly recognized for her work?  Or, do you understand where she is coming from due to how AMC ended?   Share your comments below!

As a fan , I understand it was a shock and disappointment to the fans but for the actors that put their hart and souls into these to awesome shows it must be devastating , I hope and pray both shows and our beloved actors will be back and soon !

I do understand the hurt she feels but I think she had a chance at winning.
Winning an EMMY would have shown ABC that what a big mistake they did of canceling AMC and also OLTL.
They were spiteful and made it hard for Prospect Park to continue the series

It is disappointing….but then so is the demise of the show & its revival….I can certainly understand why any & all would want time at this point to just step away….Debbie was, is & will always be the one & only Dr. Angie Hubbard….truly a class act….

I don’t blame her one bit… she got the shaft along with the rest of the cast not once but twice from ABC & Prospect Park… she puts her heart and soul into her work, so don’t blame her for not wanting to be a part of anything soap (AMC) or otherwise. It’s a shame what they did to AMC & OLTL!

I feel bad for her and I feel bad for the fans. I get that she feels she was being played for relaying what ended up being wrong info.. that she kept being told by PP that AMC was coming back, then tweeting that to fans only to have to finally tell them AMC was ending.. I can’t blame her at all, but PP’s AMC was so awesome (as was Debbi) it’s hard for me to criticize them. Love you Debbi! You’re amazing now and you always have been — there would have been an excellent chance you’d have gotten… Read more »

I certainly don’t blame her and understand her decision. If she’d won, however, it would have drawn a lot of attention to the new format and maybe helped bring AMC or other shows back. I did like the idea of soaps on the web and appreciate PP putting in all the effort that they did. They meant well and just couldn’t quite pull it off.

A very honest comment by her. I admire that. I know the chance of AMC being revived now is very slim but reading these remarks really shows you how unlikely that is to occur. Do you really think someone like Morgan who appeared to be so dedicated to the show and enjoyed it would seriously consider an offer to return now? All of it is a real shame for AMC and OLTL. On the positive side, the fans of those shows at least got a handful of additional episodes. Someone like me who followed ATWT for years got nothing. I… Read more »

At least ATWT fans got a proper ending for their show. AMC and OLTL fans will probably never get that chance for their respective shows thanks to PP’s stupidity.

To say nothing of the GH fans who now have to live in a special hell – knowing that technically GH is still on the air even though the show has been thoroughly ruined by RC and his campy, horribly paced writing style.

Michael: Barbara fromAtlanta has a great idea. How about a followup to the ATWT legends? It would be great to hear from them! David is right ATWT was allowed to leave the airwaves with some dignity and closure. I loved the last episode even if it was not perfect in the minds of some. For AMC and OLTL it was like a couple tried to start over a longtime relationship and discovered it was not the same. Prospect Park and ABC and whoever really bungled things, it seems. I enjoyed the new versions. Debbi Morgan does not need Emmy love.… Read more »

Days should hire her…revive the character of Valerie Grant…reveal she is Maxines cousin and have them both as possible new love interest for Abe Carver!!!

Johnny
Guest

James Reynolds played Debbi’s father on long ago soap Generations. Could be a little awkward. And reviving Valerie Grant could be too long ago for any viewer to care or remember. But fans would welcome Debbi to any show in any role.

Back in the 90s didnt Charles Shaunessy and Charlotte Ross who played father and daughter on Days play in a movie where Charles played a father who was in love with his daughters best friend played by Charlotte…that couldnt be any more awkward than Debbie playing James’s love interest…im just saying. Valerie hasnt been around since the 1970s(where her part was impotant) to the 1980s(less important) but she is still part of the shows history and id like to see past characters revived on soaps and kept connected to the shows history! Thanks for the reply!!!

I still have hope. I prayed for AMC & OLTL to come back and they did. I think P.P. should sue ABC. And maybe ABC will take notice bring back our Soaps They could put all 3 soaps together and call it All My Children have One life to live on General Hospital or use them all on General Hospital after all Sky and Rae were on all three soap. That’s something for ABC to think about. And Oprah was putting the shows on her Network OWN. Come on fans let’s not let them get away with doing this to… Read more »

Prospect Park is suing ABC. They canceled the shows even though they have not even been to court yet. They have given their fans and their stars no information nor any of their other employees. I hope our shows will come back but I’m not very trusting of anyone right now.

Unless PP can win the lawsuit against ABC, I don’t see how the shows will return. It’s going very hard for PP to win their lawsuit. The jury will most likely be composed of people that are indifferent to soap operas or to what ABC did to the soaps. And since ABC-Disney is a behemoth company with a reputation coupled with the fact that much of PP’s lawsuit doesnt even make sense to begin with, I found it hard to imagine that the jury would side with Prospect Park anyway. ABC itself will not bring back the soaps on their… Read more »

It’s really sad what PP did to the actors and actresses of OLTL and AMC. I don’t blame for making that decision, if it were me I’d do the same thing or I’d attend and if I won find who the 2nd runner was and then hand the award off to them. I highly doubt now that these 2 soaps will be put back on the internet or TV, it’s hard to imagine it but they are finished. How sad. ABC and PP should be ashamed of themselves and leading on the actors and actresses and of course the fans.

Besides General Hospital, I will NEVER watch ANYTHING ABC has on in the afternoon. They are the worst network for afternoon programming, PERIOD. Clearly we will not get our shows back and I am just pissed. I respect and understand Ms. Morgan’s decision. I can’t imagine what is has been like for the actors of our two beloved soaps going though this as a working actor, add to that the disappointment of being a fan who has been twice disappointed by the incredible mismangement of the revival of AMC and OLTL. This was a golden opportunity that PP screwed up… Read more »

It is her choice– she is such a talented actress I am sure she will go on to many other projects. Personally would love for her to come back to Y&R. It is so weird now Devon is like mega-rich not to have his mother around wanting some of the dough. Also, would love for the guy who played Jack’s PT to come back. If Mason is going be on the show, scamming Devon, at least his uncle should be around to keep him in check. Y&R should have never let them go, but I am sure all AMC fans… Read more »

Shame about DM not liking Y&R, I liked her as Harmony, and thought the character had real potential as love interest for Neil, better than Lesley.

Her decision makes perfect sense to me. She has remained classy and taken the high road throughout this whole PP ordeal. She is one of the actors who has tried to remain positive. PP’s lack of communication to the cast is terrible and they should be ashamed of themselves. That is not how to run a successful business. The fans also deserve some type of communication from PP. Of course, we realize that it has to be vague as a lawsuit is pending. OLTL didn’t win any awards in the last year or two so I doubt if AMC or… Read more »

I totally agree entertainment awards are political based on alliances, affiliations. This is true in movies, daytime and nighttime TV. Debbie had little chance even to get nominated since Prospect park has the political power of a flea. She had no chance whatsoever to win. And I think she is embarrassed by the whole mess. She is putting the past behind her. I think the actors have pretty much moved on. Now some die hard fans are not realistic and want to convince themselves That the world was impressed with their soap opera. The world pretty much yawned.

Rapids, unfortunately to some extent I agree with you as far as the On-line versions of the show go. They weren’t perfect, they absolutely needed some work here and there, but I think that most of us true AMC fans were willing to go along for the ride. Some fans have given up, some feel the show could still come back ~ in fairness, it wasn’t given time on-line to attract new viewers, nor find it’s footing. I do believe that All My Children could somehow resurface, but it would be with new faces and new characters in Pine Valley.… Read more »

I so see where she is coming from. It was not fair to both the fans and the actors who gave their all just to be jerked around again! After all that, they weren’t even told the news in a decent way.

I don’t know anymore exactly WHAT to think, but I don’t blame Debbi Morgan for feeling annoyed and discouraged by the way Prospect Park has handled things – and who knows at this point when and if ALL MY CHILDREN will ever return. I will say one thing though and I guess other viewers don’t agree with me, but I found the On-line versions of the show to be weak both storyline wise and in presentation. The episodes were so short and sandwiched between too many Hulu commercials but that was just my overview of it. I watched every episode… Read more »

If one “reads between the lines” it sounds like she is telling Prospect Park to
…well, take a walk.
By saying that she would like to “distance herself” from the project, it doesn’t
mean that she would never play Angie again, but it DOES sound like she’s
“done” with Prospect Park – and honestly, who could blame her for feeling that
way after how they treated both the actors and the fans?

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Photo: NATAS

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.
