Handicapping Daytime Emmy Drama Series Nods – TV Guide Mag report

Out today from TV Guide Magazine, Michael Logan reveals to his readers the seven episodes that were submitted for contention for this years Daytime Emmy for The Outstanding Drama Series, and his thoughts on the shows picks.   Soaps are allowed to submit one episode from the eligibility period.

Shockingly, Guiding Light picked their farewell episode, over his pick, and those of many soap pundits, The Runaway Bride Episode where Natalia dumped Frank at the altar and went searching for Olivia. One Life went with their Grey Gardens spoof, and AMC decided on their, “Who Shot Stuart?” episode. From the looks of it, those didn’t strike a chord, either.On the flip side, Logan cites that ATWT for it’s Valentine’s Day fairy tale spoof which already won them a DGA Award, could bring the show a final nomination at the end of it’s run.

However, it was DAYS episode revolving around Grace’s death, GH’s amazing carnival, and B&B’s beautiful sequences where Ann (Betty White) dies, that look to be strong contenders, along with Y&R”s Colleen’s heart transplant to Victor episode.

So who do you think will end up as the final nominees when they are announced on Wednesday, May 12th?

Im not shocked that they picked the wrong Guiding Light episode, Telenext and P&G killed the show deliberately.
They are doing the same with ATWT, though they thankfully have kept the production values up.
Id love to see both these shows nominated but it wont happen…..

Why in the world would One Life have picked that ridiculous Grey Gardens spoof? One Life to Live actually *is* the best Daytime Drama, why would they have picked such a ridiculous episode?

I swear they make ridiculous decisions when it comes to the Emmys. That Trevor St. John wasn’t pre-nommed last year is proof enough of that.

Thru process of elimination, no nominations go to the ff: Y&R, AMC, ATWT, OLTL and Allison Sweeney! Y&R. Probably one of the most maudlin, bathetic eps ever produced on Daytime.It’s like a bad Emmy reel for Bergman. He hogs and chews and delivers one pithy, ridiculous line after the next like “Lives blown up” and the poetic “Colleen is full of heart.” LOL! Miller was terrible, and his skull looked like it would burst. Killing off Colleen dismantles the Abbott clan yet again, and this haphazzard storyline was hatched to write out Braeden. I don’t think voters will endorse Y&R.… Read more »

I wish ATWT would have chosen the Christmas Eve episode about Brad Snyder’s final good-bye and crossing over. I found everything about it so very good. I suppose GL’s submission of its final ep is in respect to the entire company but I thought they tried to shoehorn too much into that last hour. As much as I loved Betty White and her story arc on B&B, the overall storytelling on that series is so bad. Y&R, too, seems mired in stupidity. One moment does not exhibit overall excellencein a series. OLTL has a wealth of riches (yes, I am… Read more »

Michelle Stafford vs. Crystal Chappell MS’s reel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezEMtN0eBIM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7OqwH_eKZI Now this is how to submit an Emmy tape. There was range. Even the intro with Noah was good. Yes in some parts of “please leave” she goes overboard, but she reels it back in. Stafford breathes a lot of life into the scene, and Phyliss is as crazy as usual. This reel boasts a lot of rich acting from Stafford, and she could very well win the Emmy. CC’s reel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bhNHFR9cew Otalia has gotten a lot of feedback, so maybe there will be a backlash from the voters. Also, Nelson… Read more »

I don’t know if many people would let Branco’s opinions affect how they vote. He’s always exaggerating and saying ridiculous things. It’s been a while since I’ve seen Crystal Chappell’s clip but I thought she did a great job with the material she was given.

It was a bad idea to submit GL’s last episode. It fairly good as far as finale’s go except for the failure to address what happened to Jeffrey. But it certainly wasn’t the best episode of GL that year.

anonymous, I agree w/ your comments. branco is daytime’s empress of exaggeration. For years he’s been pushing for Amelia Heinle’s firing and telling TPTB thru his columns to recast Y&R’s Vikki w/ some reasonable suggestions (Sarah Joy Brown, Tamara Braun, Christie Clark, Gina Tognoni) to perplexing, awful ones (Eden reigel, Maura West, and the WORST: Terri Columbino! Hahahahahahahaha.) Slutty Katie as Y&R’s Victoria?! Terrible suggestion! He’s been campaigning tirelessly to get Hienle and Woods (B&B’s Steffy) fired, thru his exaggerated bashing of their acting. He bashes Woods every week, even when Steffy isn’t even on B&B! Yet he’ll never bash… Read more »

Hey bottomchef, since you know what the Y&R and GH ladies sent out as their leading actresses emmy reels, do you know what Scott Evans sent out as his emmy reel for his potential younger acting nod? I know what Brett Claywell sent for his emmy reel for his best supporting actor nod, but what about SE? I know you prefer BC over SE to get a daytime emmy nomination, but I would really like to see SE’s reel since I’ve already seen BC’s reel on YouTube.

Why the hell would I help you CLB? All you did was launch personal attacks at me during the height of the kish axings all because you disagreed w/ my opinions. Go find the SE reel yourself. But who cares abt his reel? It’ll most likely be a piece of crap. To those interested, here’s Cougar Town’s ace up their sleeve, Carolyn Hennesy, for GH Supporting Actress reel: Diane gets back with Max on Thanksgiving: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZRM1vy8gYU Once again Nelson Branco was disproven. he claimed that Daytime community jealousies prevented one of his faves, Tuc Watkins, from ever getting pre nominated… Read more »

I for one feel Crystal Chappell will win the Emmy for best actress, she was far and away the better actress in 2009 not to mention its her turn she has never one best actress and she is long over due. Ms Strafford has her share of best actress Emmy’s and if the daytime Emmy’s want to be considered a legitimate judge of talent CC will win.

TONIGHT: All My Children’s Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams Together Again on All-New Episode of ‘Our Kind of People’

The Fox drama, Our Kind of People (9 pm ET/8pm CT), will feature a reunion, of sorts, on tonight’s January 18th episode when Debbi Morgan (Ex-Angie, All My Children) once again shares screen-time with her former on-screen soap opera love, Darnell Williams (Ex-Jesse, All My Children).

While mum’s the word as to Williams role, we know that Debbi plays Angela’s Aunt Piggy on the series, and in last week’s installment, Piggy went to the police station to turn herself in for the murder of her ex-boyfriend years ago.  However, Darnell’s character could hold the key as to what really went down in the murder.

Debbi spoke to TV Line about acting again with Darnell: “We were shooting the scene when Darnell’s character walks through the door for the first time.  And it was the first time we see this character on the show, and I looked at him and shouted, ‘Jesse!’ The director had to yell cut and everyone fell out laughing. It was hilarious. I knew that wasn’t his name on Our Kind of People but I couldn’t help myself. We worked together for so many years as Angie and Jesse and that’s the first thing that came to my mind.”

For those who have not checked out Our Kind of People, it takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful Black elite have come to play for over 50 years.

In story, strong-willed single mom Angela Vaughn (Ex-AMC star, Yaya Decosta) sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her revolutionary hair care line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of Black women, but she soon discovers a dark secret about her own mother’s past that will turn her world upside-down and shake up this community forever. The show is a soapy, thrilling exploration of race and class in America and an unapologetic celebration of Black resilience and achievement.

The series is from writer and executive producer Karin Gist (Star, Grey’s Anatomy) and executive producer Lee Daniels (Empire, The United States Vs. Billie Holiday).

So, will you be watching Debbi and Darnell together on tonight’s Our Kind of People? Comment below.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
