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.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
