The great General Hospital is not included.. ”snubbed.
I will not watch, boycott in way I guess is what it is.. So not wasting a nice day on them..
And besides GH would be the only soap I’d really care about..
I will be reading the winners and loser for a month on the boards/sites whichever after anyways,..

They weren’t snubbed. Better read the article again 🙂

You’re not going to watch, su000? I am sure they will be utterly devastated to learn of your boycott.

Harry, I agree!!
The awards will most likely halt until I tune in .. lol

Thing is; these are not soap opera awards, only..
there will a ton of talk and game show stuff I never watch to care about them..
I have never watched B&B or DOOL and no GH to speak of, so that leaves Y&R for what I watch and I won’t sit through hours of talk and game show awards for Y&R….
and I am seriously thinking of dumping Y&R and giving DOOL a try.. Exciting huh..
Anyways.. we will be bombarded with the winning clips and pic etc, so no need for me to sit through it all .. lol
I hope you enjoy it, Harry and that the winners are your picks/likes..
(make pop corn and have a fun watching!

@JimH

THAT’s a NICE and Lovely thought

I long for the days when ATWT, AW, GL, walked the red carpet and we celebrated with SO much more

Christina Crawford would be great! Are you familiar with “The Secret Storm”? Her mother stepped in for her when she was on sick leave!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I know about Joan Crawford, and The Secret Storm. Former daytime star Jada Rowland started on the show as a young child Amy Ames and was on and off the show til the very end…they never aged her character…she then replaced Carolee Cambell as Carolee Aldrich on The Doctors serial and stayed in the part til the shows end in the early 1980s. For many years The Doctors was a top soap sandwiched between DOOLs and AW!

GH has two presenters like the other show (expect Y&R which has three). GH may of not gotten series, writing, directing but it still has SEVERAL nominations.

Mary SF

They had the third most nominations after Y&R and B&B–but it seems most people only care about the “big” categories—but in the end like I always say, viewers are the winners because we get to enjoy the talents of many people day in and day out.

Vanessa

So pleased to see Guy and Freddie from days up there! I wonder what award they are presenting as neither of them were nominated this year! Its a travesty that Freddie wasn’t nominated this year!

Greta

Good list. I love Lisa LoCicero, glad she’ll be presenting.

Chris

Will it be shown on tv this year? At first I heard yes, then no. Anyone know?!

Matthew

No. GH getting snubbed didn’t help either.

Dani

I would have liked to have seen as presenters, Luke Geary, Eric Braeden and Melody Thomas Scott added to the mix.

Will the Daytime Emmy Awards be televised this year?

Matthew
Matthew

No. The show gets such low ratings and with GH being snubbed in the major categories and advertisers worried that GH fans who bring in the advertising demo won’t tune in, no one wants to carry it.

Iakovos

There’s the million dollar question!

Maybe shown online after the fact? How sad the Daytime Emmy Awards have sunk to such low regard.

Well Guy Wilons acting skills are still not there, guess we can see now how well he does reading off a TelePrompTer.

Be neat for Guy to present the emmy to Chandler. He will probably be presenting another category though.

I dunno but sounds very dull to me..
Daytime TV has ALL talk and games show is those emmies from ALL the networks….
there are only 3 just 3 soaps..
I would not care to sit through all the talk and game shows stuff, not at all..
The daytime emmy soap winners videos will be all over soap land after to view ……

good luck to all nominated!!

Kim Huck
Kim Huck

Your a very negative person SuOOOOOO

Kim.. I’m very positive.. I do not watch game and talk shows nor B&B or DOOL, could give a hoot over Y&R wins to sit through hours of awards for them ..
And- that makes me a time saver! giving me that time for a long peaceful walk 🙂

I will hear about and see clips/videos for GH awards, after.. I will miss nothing .. lol

Harry

That would be four soaps but who’s counting?

LOL thanks Harry!! apparently I was not counting but! you did very well lol .. 🙂

Fitting that the emmy’s won’t be televised since GH got robbed! Best show on daytime! No question! What a joke. They should just give up on the ceremony. The nomination process is ridiculous! Why do so many actors get snubbed whenever they have a stellar year just to be nominated the following year when the material doesn’t compare to the previous eligibility period? One example would be Kelly Sullivan. Last year she submitted her rape and multiple personality scenes which were phenomenal and got shut out. This year her scenes paled in comparison and she gets the nod. The Emmy’s are DOA. Dump em!

I’m fine with these presenters for the Creative Arts Emmys on June 20th.However i’m wondering who the presenters will be at the Daytime Emmys on June 22nd.

I think Michael Muhney(Adam) of Y&R should have been nominated. Y&R gave him a raw deal. He deserved Best Actor, but wasn’t even nominated. So sad, they fired him just before Christmas, he has a wife and 3 small children. What a Christmas present. He was accused of a few things, non proven or talked about since. He wasn’t even given a fair chance to prove these things wrong. Not to proud of Y&R and there producer.

Tina

I was hoping Michael Easton and Roger Howarth would present since they weren’t nominated as much as they deserved it. GH and many GH actors were robbed this year! I hope Jason and some of the others win. Mostly, I wish it would get a network to televise it! Step up CBS! You got all the noms and have the most soaps!

So, I didn’t see where it was going to be televised…..What’s up with that? Am I missing something?

Years ago the daytime Emmy Awards were a big deal and the soaps were a big deal. The soap awards seem almost meaningless, how can you nominate four shows when there are only four soaps on the air. This event has dropped tremendously in importance over the years.

su0000
su0000

Way I see it;
The 4 soaps will get overshadowed by a slew of talk and game shows emmy nominations from ALL the networks..
The poor soaps are slipped in among them all ..

Mary SF

I partly agree, but in the end these awards began and always were an inside industry way to recognize outstanding work, whether in front or behind the camera. Other industries have such awards, most are not televised or hold any interest for the general public, but I am sure the importance for those who are being honored is still there.
Honestly, I think all award shows should be private affairs over the years they became less and less about the work and more and more about who is attending and what are they wearing— I stopped watching all of them saved the Oscars, my one indulgence, but after this year’s snooze fest I might give up on that one too.

The Emmy ceremonies are to be held on Friday night, June 20th !
That gives a network around 35 days days to arrange all the fanfare for it to air, not possible if it will be worth watching..
Thing is;
No Network even wants to air the Day Time Emmies..
Seems it is not worth their time and effort to hold/sponder the emmies..

Barbara

I think Sharon Case should have been nominated too. She’s been doing great job!

I am excited to see the talented Jessica Carlton of Green Screen Adventures listed among the presenters. She is one to watch in the years ahead.

Gone are the real daytime Emmys, when it was full of clips of the 10 soaps on air. It started becoming a treat to see a clip, or even have a host that had SOMETHING to do with soaps! Now that nobody wanted to air it, they will finally load up on the soap stars to present all the awards, including the two cancelled at same time, & left only 3 & a half soaps? #Toolittletoolate Happy for the stars to shine that night, sad for soap fans. Will NEVER forgive ABC/D!

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”

And my costars, and , are doing the best work of their lives!”  That was followed by, T”hank you for the chance to work with you on your first foray into soaps! I am humbled and honored. We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.
