Gosh, I love this interview so much! It is so nice to see Drake talking a lot more, usually he sits back and lets Deidre do most of the talking while he flashes his beautiful smile to the camera. I love how modest he is and that we have been graced with his talents since 1986! The best choice DAYS ever made was having him play a recast Roman, which has now turned into more than we could’ve ever dreamed, he is the best of the best!

I and three of my friends flew from KY to be there for DOD. My friends went last year but this was two firsts for me, as I’ve never been to CA. DOD WAS AWESOME!!! I cried when Days theme song started. I and my friends have watched Days for 50 yrs. and so did our mothers, whom are all now deceased. We got there at 7:00 am to get a front row seat. All of the actors and actresses were soo beautiful and friendly. We were disappointed though at the no shows. Daniel, Jennifer, Bo, Hope, Victor, Stephano, Sami,… Read more »

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Archey who stepped into the role in 2017, has made the decision to leave the long-running NBC soap opera, and will last air the week of July 4.

NATAS President and CEO, Adam Sharp, Shares Insight Into 49th Annual Daytime Emmys Telecast

The Daytime Emmys are just three days away when the gold statuettes are handed out on the 49th Annual Awards Show telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+ on Friday night, June 24th (9pm EST).

Ahead of the ceremonies, NATAS President and CEO, Adam Sharp, spoke to Variety to give some details of what viewers may be on the lookout for when the broadcast returns, with an all-live presentation for the first time since 2019, and through the Covid-19 pandemic, which caused it to pivot to virtual ceremonies for the last two years.

Now, Sharp shares that with the previously announced realignment that will see Children’s & Family programming having its own Emmy that, “The telecast will be very squarely focused on the dramas, talk shows and game shows.”  He also adds: “It will be a bit more focused.”

With an audience present this year, Sharp is counting on the live element to heighten the awards night fun and drama. expressing, “Hopefully that  excitement conveys to the viewers.  I think you’ll see us try to put a lot of that interaction on display.”

This year’s Daytime Emmys will feature 14 categories which Sharp hopes streamlines the broadcast and keeps it to a tight two-hour celebration of daytime.

Previously, NATAS and the TV Academy (which administers the Primetime Emmys), decided to move away from day part distinctions and focus more on genre. In addition, streaming series featuring soap notables, such as Studio City and The Bay, will be competing for nomination slots in September’s Primetime Emmys.

So, looking forward to this year’s Daytime Emmy telecast? Comment below.
