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… Read 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!

Guest
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.

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!

Will the Daytime Emmy Awards be televised this year?

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.

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

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 ……

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

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… Read more »

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.

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!

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
Guest

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… Read more »

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..

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!

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
