these awards are for the 2011 season, sorry judi, but it’s no emmy award for GH current regime, its for the old one. sorry to break your heart, but GH isn’t winning all these awards because of FV and RC, for that we wont know till the 2012 season is over and up for nominations.

I know it was creative arts awards, and casting director for GH won, which means the actors they added from OLTL was a good move!! As for winning the song? well I am happy for GH, but I loved the exciting music, graphics, etc from OLTL… was the best ever… Congrats GH and Y & R at least we have you ….. Will be watching for the pictures from the Creative Arts In Daytime … so I can see the presenters… Your the best Michael Thank you!!

These awards were for things that happened in 2011, so the OLTL actors coming to GH weren’t a part of it.

I just want to say, I turned on the tv, this morning to watch a little SoapNet and catch an old episode of OLTL while I got ready for work and found that Disney Jr has taken over the original programming that was once there. I find it just strange how quietly this was done overnight. I knew that SaopNet wass ending, but thought there was still a little bit more time before this crap took over. ABC sucks!!! I hate how they deal with this. There was no announcement or anything about this.

Torrey your lucky that Soapnet lasted this long for you as here in Sacramento if you had Comcast Cable they took off Soapnet back in mid April.

Torrey, I still have soapnet on direct tv, how were you getting it before, what cable company? A friend of mine lost it they had comcast. I know one evening that’s when I like to watch soap net, It will be gone it’s just a matter of time. I don’t understand why I am getting it then there are so many others who aren’t but it still has the regular programming of soap net and there is disney junior, Wish someone would explain. Abc does suck, you got that right.

I live in the NW portion of Florida, and have Mediacom. I was receiving Soapnet until this morning. I’m really depressed by it. I usually have to be to work early in the morning, and would get up and watch old episodes of OLTL. It was my way of keeping the show alive, for me…. I sent Michael a tweet, but don’t know if he’ll respond or be able to come up with the answer, but I would love to know how the cancellation of AMC & OLTL have truly effected the remaining daytime lineup of ABC. I mean, I… Read more »

I live in florida to, the central part, I heard a few weeks ago that the chew isn’t doing as good as all my children did, Its so sad I miss one life to live and all my children and I would like to know the true ratings of the other abc shows to, I never understood why abc canceled those soaps, I know for sure that the revolution never came close to beating One life to live, All I know is I don’t think abc will ever have the daytime fans like they had when the soaps were on… Read more »

Don’t think Y&R should have won for hairstyling. Don’t think it’s too creative. Days should have won for Sami’s hair alone! Nice to see Days did win for makeup.

Agreed on both counts.

I agree with you both. IMO… doesn’t Sammi, seem to have come in to her own… ala… grand dame… of DAYS.. she’s a full figured woman… ala queen mum Marlena… when Sammi quaffs her hair bun style… she reels old serial gussied up. it adds mystique and lends herself meaning for acting soap. re-posting this…. I like Allison Sweeney’s and/or days choices in Sammi’s look… she totally embodies her womanhood. for all the changes that are going on at DAYS – Allison Sweeney, has been the one constant.. who has carried… DAYS… the torch, heroine, handed down… from Ms. Classy… Read more »

It was my hope that Y&R would lose in every single category in both creative and acting categories this year. It would be a major indictment on MAB’s disgusting run of a once glorious show.

it’s a Hoot that Y&R, still, counts, and advertises, whenever, the actors, plug, the show… it’s the #1 show… FOR YEARS! use to irritate me… and i say this, cause,,, i’d be watching other shows.. and wanted my show to be #1. ATWT. DAYS. Santa Barbara. AMC. etc… thru the years… and, don’t get me wrong… i’d still keep up with Y&R… and for many of those (suspect) lol… years at #1… can see why it gained a huge following… that being said… i’m not watching y&r… and agree, with most fans… because of MAB. and, for the millionth time,,,… Read more »

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

Photo: JPI

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
