Listen, congrats to all the winners, but this show totally blew! I heard more crickets than anythingelse. Was it too late to secure the rights to the shows’ themes so they could play as the show winner made their way to the stage? And what about that tribute to AMC and OLTL? Oh, that’s right, it was turned into a true Erica Kane segment where Susan Lucci gushed about herself. What was that all about? Why was Erika Slezak minimized to a few sentences and nothing mentioned about the vast contributions from the stars on these two shows? Where were… Read more »

Your right it was awful how she behaved, How many times did she say the name Ericka Kane? Very disappointed in her, but not at all surprised. I know after last nights good bye to only Ericka KAne I could care less about her, I wanted to see and hear from ERICKA SLEZAK not Ericka KAne. What a Waste. Rodd, Rebecca, And david your all right.

Here’s what we should have seen, an excellent video tribute to OLTL: http://t.co/26WbbvFt Here’s what OLTL cast tweeted about televised “tribute”: Kassie DePaiva, “Omg… That was the OLTL tribute????” Robin Strasser, “Worried that it wasn’t really a tribute to #AMC #OLTL but to Susan Lucci. Grateful once Cam and Erika came on it became a tribute to FANS:)” Hillary B. Smith, “Just watched Emmys. Did I miss the OLTL trubute? And a clip from 1999 for the OLTL directors? Confused and sad! . . . Totally lame and ungracious. The soaps are what built the daytime audience. We were reduced… Read more »

It was truly the worst thing I’ve ever seen. Not only the narcissistic speech of Susan Lucci, going on and on about ERICA KANE…..but I was thoroughly pissed by the introduction that Agnes Nixon and Ricky Paul Goldin….addressing Susan Lucci as the queen of daytime. I am a fan and all, but when you’re standing next to a 6 time Emmy winner for Outstanding Leading Actress, don’t you think that title is a little exaggerated? Agnes Nixon didn’t even mention OLTL! Excuse my language but, WTF?! And I’m sick to death of seeing Cameron Mattheson representing AMC!! His character was… Read more »

Very disappointed that Ericka Slezak didn’t win her 7th. Aside from that General hospital did great, I hope Abc/disney was paying attention to those emmys, next year they should win again because gh has gotten even better, It was nice that hln had the emmys however, I found it to be very, very boring, At least it wasn’t a 3 ringed circus, They only had 3 weeks to put it together so I will give them a break, I did like Oscars singing at the beginning, My biggest complaint is that awful, terrible, music they played while they were introducing… Read more »

Agree that I am willing to give a pass on the production due to the time frame they had to put it together. Glad that they even attempted. That being said, there were things that made me roll my eyes and/or be glad I watched it via DVR and has the fast forward option. I was terribly disappointed that Erika Slezak and Bob Woods did not win. Consolation is that they will have one last shot next year since OLTL still aired during the qualifying period. I wonder if they did not have access to some of the clips or… Read more »

Ovreall, I was pleased with the presentation. Although I was disappointed that Erica Slezak and Bob Woods didn’t win in their categories. On the other hand, I am happy about GH being the big winner for the night. Kind of a slap in the face to ABC for as Tony Geary aptly put it, that this show was up for possible cancellation last year in favor of a reality “boob job gone bad” show. So, take THAT ABC! Congrats to Geary and all of the GH family! Considering the awards show was done on a shoestring and with very little… Read more »

REALLY wanted Crystal Chappell to win for Carly. I think it would have been a great moment for her since things did not go well over at Days and she worked her ass off over that drug storyline… even getting physically sick to perform well… but i know the Emmys usually go for stuff like “Lucky 7” and a feat of winning all Actress categories… even if CC didn’t win, i think Debbi should have. NO disrespect to Heather Tom, she is an amazing actress and does well on B&B but if it really came down to the acting and… Read more »

Another victorious night for GH and another blow in the face of OLTL which is very sad given that it was OLTL’s last chance.

I wasn’t impress with the “tributes” for AMC and OLTL either. But I don’t think this surprise anyone given the lame “tributes” they gave to GL and ATWT the years before.

Forgot where I read this but because one life to live lasted longer then all my children after they were cancelled. I heard that one life to live can be in the awards next year. I hope so , I would like to find out if that is true. Seemed like it was a tribute to ericka Kane, it was lame. and the music they played, it was bad. However, I did like Oscar.

I glad that days of our lives won writing team (it was a shocker) and so glad chandler massey won younger actor and nancy lee grahn won supporting actress. I disappointed that amc and oltl did win a thing. Gh should not won almost every award ;I darnell deserve lead actor and matthew ashford deserve supporting. Well here hoping that it will be different next year.

“Truth is, I have an out of town commitment that I made prior to the announcement of Emmy Nominations that I must honor.”

I don’t know what to say. What r ratings for? One Life To Lives ratings were higher than AMC, and way above GH. One Life To Live usually gets snubbed. For what reason who knows. We THE FANS liked OLTL best, yet it was still cancelled and snubbed at the Emmys. This is a joke at this point. I like Heather Tom too. But not to win against my leading lady of Llanview, Erika Slezak! Next to that would, and should have been Debbie Morgan. She rocked her child loss blind story. I shed many tears over that story.

I was surprised that we didn’t see any clips. That music they kept playing got on my nerves. Did they only have one tune? I didn’t like that people were up and walking around during the show. When Eric Braeden came out, it took forever for him to speak. One of the best parts was the alligator trying to eat the Emmy. Happy Chandler, Heather, and Days won. Was surprised Christel won. It wasn’t the best show, but I do think it was better than last year’s with their travelmercial. I also would have liked to have had a host.… Read more »

Wow! Thank goodness all you fans recognized what I did…that Susan Lucci gave herself fifteen minutes of time to talk about herself and then brought up Erica Slezac, the best soap actor of all time and slighted her and Erica even had to bend sideways to get to the mike. I was appalled. Who the hell does Lucci think she is ? And who gave her the power? Shady. doings! I was laughing when only one person applauded and Lucci toward that one person and said in her saccharine way…thank you…nobody cares ,Susan. Get over yourself…

I do give the production company a break, being not on network, they may not have been allowed to show the clips or they could have been to expensive, but at least they showed the photos of the actors.

I am happy about all the GH wins, thought I would not have minded if AMC got the Best Daytime Drama award, and it would have been nice if Erica Slezak got her final award. But who know she might get a chance next year for the two week stint into the year!

I didn’t watch the show, but I am grateful that “Y & R” did not win any of the major awards (Best Drama Series, Best Writing Team). Perhaps this will be a wake-up call to CBS/SONY and with any luck, some behind-the-scenes housecleaning will come about sooner than later. “Y & R” is really getting to the point where I can barely watch it: the silly, plot-driven and plodding stories; one-note vapid characters created to push lame story while legacy characters are shoved into the background and the new characters are shoved at the viewer; an over-bloated cast full of… Read more »

I watched the clip “Susan Lucci salutes Erica Kane, canceled soaps” from the Daytime Emmys
http://www.hlntv.com/video/2012/06/23/susan-lucci-tribute-erica-kane-and-cancelled-soaps

There was NO tribute to OLTL other than the mere mention of its name, before which Lucci goes on and on about Erica Kane. OLTL deserved so much better than this. No clips, no mention of the other actors who had been on OLTL for decades. No nothing.

I feel sorry for anyone who has to be in the same room with Lucci, let alone work with her. Devious Maids is doomed.

Why was Cameron Matheson out there with Lucci and Slezak? It should’ve been the two leading ladies of the cancelled series introducing retrospective clips of our shows.

As for Slezak’s loss — I’m shocked. Heather Thom is a great actress but she didn’t have the material Slezak did. Of course, once I saw that had OLTL failed to garner Best Show or Best Writing nods, I knew it was yet another shut-out year for that great show.

Cameron Matheson is all over like “you know what”. He’s on Good Morning America, TNT and just this afternoon saw him in a 2012 movie for Lifetime with Sidney Penny. He must know someone or he’s an incredible brown noser. As for Susan Lucci, she seems to be all over the place too. Why was she chosen to do the “tribute”? All she did was talk about herself and her character. God forbid she should give up the microphone to Erica Slezak. Poor Ms. Slezak. Traveled 3000 miles to be snubbed and crowded out from the microphone. Disgraceful!

Bad as some of the show was, let’s just be glad it aired and hope that HLN will do a better job next year when they have more time to plan. I know that’s why the music was so bad and there were so few different presenters.

I was disappointed in many of the winners, but that’s the daytime Emmy’s for you. If you’re not an avid, long-time viewer of a show, of course you are disappointed if someone from that show won.

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.
