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.

Kelly Ripa Launches Podcast on SiriusXM

Former All My Children stars Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) can add launching a podcast to their extensive resume through their production company, Milojo Productions, and Sirius XM.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

In a statement on her new hosting gig and show, Ripa expressed: “After 23 years of interviewing celebrities, authors, musicians and experts on live TV, the big takeaway is that the most compelling and unfiltered conversations happen off camera. I have dreamed of a platform where I can have these honest talks without all the fuss and filter of a camera. Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.

So, will you check out Kelly’s new podcast? Hope she has some All My Children alum on as guests? Comment below.

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.
