GH tends to get too preachy with current issues. Im a strong supporter of gay rights. But I have a BIG problem with gender identity issues involving young children. It’s a slippery slope that makes me uncomfortable. For a show that’s very cast heavy and stories going in a million different directions, they just need to stick to good story telling and save the debates for the talk shows.

I couldn’t agree more… as has been posted before… is this subject matter a little bit too much for this oh so young actor to mind ?!?! I’ve posted that TPTB AND frank / shelly / Chris NEED to address this. this actor does not need the unnecessary attention… even if he’s just doing his job

California.  Deadline broke the story of the decision to postpone daytime’s biggest night, for now.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
