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..

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!

Morgan Fairchild And Soap Notables Filming New LGBTQ Series ‘Mélange’

Over the next several days in New York, some very familiar faces to daytime soap fans are busy filming episodes of a new series entitled Melange, which stars Morgan Fairchild (most recently ex-Angelica, DAYS).

The series is set against the backdrop of a historic New York City gay bar named “Melange”, and the fight for ownership over it, when it’s proprietor has suddenly and mysteriously died.  Melange will explore themes of sexuality, immigration, addiction, power, and inclusion.

Guiding Light’s Robert Newman, All My Children’s Darnell Williams, One Life to Live’s Scott Evans ,  Kristen Alderson, Ilene Kristen, and David A. Gregory are some of the daytime faves tapped for roles in the series, which is said to be a half-hour drama.

In story, Newman, plays Syd Winchester, the deceased owner of ‘Mélange’. Scott Evans stars as Ryann Parker, a young man who fights to keep Mélange away from Syd’s wife, Vivian played by

Melange was created and being executive produce by Tom D’Angora, with former OLTL director and Emmy Award-winner, Gary Donatelli, and Tony Award winning producer, Tim Kashani.

One Life to Live & All My Children Reunion Event Photo Gallery

Over the weekend, actors who appeared on two beloved legacy soap operas: All My Children and One Life to Live took part in a reunion event held over GH Fan Club Weekend.  And while the fans in attendance were excited to see some of their favorites, it was the former cast members themselves getting to see their former co-stars for the first time in years which made the event all the more touching.

Then, in big surprise to the attendees, none other than former One Life to Live star, Nathan Fillion showed up to give hugs to his former castmates including: Erin Torpey (Ex-Jessica), and James (Ex-Max) and Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair), among others.  Fillion, who has gone on to primetime success with his show Castle, and his upcoming new series on ABC, The Rookie, has never forgotten his beginnings in show business as Joe Buchanan!  Who can forget his on-screen affair with Robin Strasser’s Dorian, which sent Viki (Erika Slezak) into orbit!

Kassie DePaiva (now Eve on DAYS) told Michael Fairman TV on Fillion’s appearance that she had reached out to him to let him know about the event: “I knew the fans would love it.  He is very proud of his roots.”

When asked about seeing the original Blair, Mia Korf, at the same event whom she had never met, Kassie said, “I went, ‘There’s the real Blair,” but it was really nice meeting her.  You know with One Life to Live actors, even if you didn’t work with somebody there is such a camaraderie, which makes this show so special.”

All My Children fans were thrilled to see appearances by Rebecca Budig (Ex-Greenlee), Vincent Irizarry (Ex-David), Jordi Vilasuso, who will soon be seen in his new role on Y&R, and played Dr, Griffin Castillo in Pine Valley, and many more.

Check out our photo gallery of some of the past cast from both AMC and OLTL who showed up to say “hello again” to each other and the fans below.  Then, let us know if it makes you miss Pine Valley and Llanview all the more in the comment section, and which photo you liked the most!
