HLN Announces Best Morning Show to be Last Award of the Evening at Daytime Emmys!

As HLN is  in preparations to bring you the exciting 39th Annual Daytime Emmys on June 23rd, some changes are already being implemented.  One of those is the presentation of the final award of the evening, which up till now has been the Outstanding Drama Series award given out to the soaps.

However this year, HLN has announced via its Twitter page,  that the final award of the evening will be for the Outstanding Morning Show which includes nominees such as The Today Show and Good Morning America.

HLN tweeted: “For the first time, the Daytime Emmy award for best morning show will be the final award of the night. Will it be Today Show or GMA?”

Now while soap fans may immediately want to jump and feel this could be a slight to soaps, there is a bright side!  The Daytime Drama Series category won’t be cut off at the end of the program, as has happened many times over,  if the live show should be running late!  NATAS and HLN have already let it be known that their goal is to present as many categories as they can in all fields of daytime programming.

So how do you feel about the change? Are you cool with Outstanding Drama Series being handed out inside the broadcast? Or, do you feel it should be designated for the final award of the evening, without question?  Let us know!

While I am so very grateful to HLN for broadcasting the Daytime Emmys, I am somewhat disenchanted that “Outstanding Drama Series” will not be the final award given, because to me this is yet another sign that tptb feel other programming, such as morning television, is more important than the soap genre. On a positive note, at least we will be able to see the broadcast, so that positive far surpasses the negative mentioned above, and I am sure HLN will handle each award with the dignity and time they deserve, unlike the fiasco broadcast last year.

I’m just happy that HLN is broadcasting the show, and we will be able to watch it. I’m also happy that it seems like this year will be a return to more of a traditional Emmy Awards show, not a nauseating Las Vegas infomercial. What order they choose to present the awards doesn’t matter to me. I’ll be watching for what I hope will be a big GH night!

Great idea! Let them cut off the Outstanding Morning Show category at the end. All of us here care more about soaps. I just wish OLTL was in the running for the Outstanding Drama Series.

I’m just grateful they are being televised. I’m rooting for OLTL to win in every category with a nomination. But especially Erika Slezak as Lead Actress.

Have no Idea why they would do this, I really don’t care I am interested in the soaps I could care less who wins for any of the talk shows because I am not sucked in by that kind of programing, Next year there may only be 4 soaps left even though things are not looking good for days and general hospital, Once the soaps are gone, Seriously who is going to tune in to see who has the best talk show? I’m Not that’s for sure. Let them do the soaps early on then we know right off the… Read more »

glad HLN is airing the show and I will watch. At least it won’t be an endless commercial for the Vegas Venue like the last few years. As far as best news/talk show getting the final award…stupid. Who watches the daytime Emmys to see that? Not me. I couldn’t care less and will probably change the channel once the soap awards have all been given out.

TONIGHT: 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

Other leading contenders through the night will include the series: The Mandalorian, WandaVision, The Handmaid’s Tale, Saturday Night Live, Lovecraft CountryThe Queen’s Gambit and Mare of Easttown.

Cedric the Entertainer will host the three-hour special on CBS beginning at 8 pm EST emanating from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.  Pandemic and all there will be a return to an opening number.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.

So, who are you rooting for to win the gold at the 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
