ICYMI: Watch The 45th Annual Daytime Emmys! What Were Your Favorite Highlights Of The Night?



If you missed the presentation of the 45th Annual Daytime Emmys live-stream on Sunday, or want to watch it again, NATAS has made the ceremony available via its You Tube channel. But wait, we have it for you right here after the jump!

While the 45th Emmys are now in the record books, there were plenty of conversation pieces that had people chatting on social media over the last several days when discussing the top emotional, dramatic, and well-deserved moments, accolades, and acceptance speeches from the show.

Some included: GH’s Chris Van Etten getting a standing ovation along with his service dog, Harley when presenting with Lucky Dog’s Brandon McMillan, The brother-sister duo of Brad and Lauralee Bell honoring their parents Y&R’s co-creators Bill and Lee Phillip Bell before tossing to the Y&R 45th Anniversary tribute package. 


There was Days of our Lives taking home the gold in all key categories of Drama Series, Writing and Directing, a feat that has not been done in decades.

Keeping it in the Salem family there was James Reynolds (Abe, DAYS) becoming the first African-American actor to win Lead Actor since Darnell Williams for All My Children, and DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes’ (Doug and Julie) speech after being presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as Deidre Hall (Marlena, DAYS) anchoring the tribute and package for her good friends and longtime co-stars.


There was Ron Carlivati winning his first writing trophy for Days of our Lives, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R) winning the Lead Actress category in the too-close-to-call category of the Emmys, and GH’s Chloe Lanier’s (Nelle, GH) enthusiasm as the first winner of the night for Younger Actor. In addition to soap vet, Greg Vaughan (Eric, DAYS) feeling the love winning Supporting Actor, and Laura Wright (Carly, GH)  anchoring the segment and tribute to General Hosptal’s 55th anniversary package.

The on-stage presenters included: Elizabeth Hubbard and Martha Byrine (Ex-ATWT), both lead actress winners and Liz being the first Emmy winner in that category in Emmy history. There was Suzanne Rogers (Maggie, DAYS) the first actress to win the Supporting Actress trophy in 1979.

You also had the likes of Jane Pauley, Larry King, The ladies from The Talk, Marie Osmond and her nephew, and The ladies of The Real jumping up and down when they won the Entertainment Talk Show Host category, and the flash mob at the beginning of the opening number were fans saw GH’s Finola Hughes, Michelle Stafford, Wes Ramsey, John J. York and others getting down with it from their seats!

My greatest highlight of the Emmys was–
Coming here to read Michaels highlights of the evening and to have him inform me who the winners are..


“that” GH and Laura Wright and Maurice Benard took a step back.

Frank Valentini did not escalate or rise to the occasion


I was taken by Marla Adams… enthusiasm… excitement.. and her radiance @being @the show

that was enough for me to root that much more

Camryn Grimes.. seemed dulled to the senses. OK she said… if she WON again

she’d rather not cry and be jubilant

??? what the

piss off on this demeanor… what? where does this extra gold go


Casey Moss… robbed of acknowledge

yeah, this fan is miffed MAD and you don’t deserve that honor.. you were fired

let go

@DAYS would have had a near complete sweep of GOLD

that never happens… my heart filled


my heart is full of James Reynolds

Sir : my man… “congratulations”

beam full out smile radiant full out beat to his rhythm

it’s his

his near 40 years of my loving him . debut 1981. that’s a lot of share

SIR: I applaud your place ; your drive ; your commitment

Mr. James Reynolds


I only seen a clip when James Reynolds won…and when he did what was that look on Billy Miller’s and Micheal Easton’s face…disappointment or sour grapes or were they looking at Frank V. who continues to ruin GH?…lol


Did you notice Frank comforting Billy on the back? Like a “You’ll get em next time champ!” gesture. [Too bad I can’t include an audio clip here, but if it could, I would insert the music that accompanied Debbie Downer on SNL.]


i missed that…


Micheal Easton was happy for James Reynolds. They did work together on Days in 1992. He sent him a message on Twitter the next day and James Reynolds was thrilled and happy that he received that tweet.


James Reynolds deserved the Emmy and everybody who has any decency knows it and FV with his merry band of followers is taking GH to the trash dump where it belongs. Kin Shriner needs to quit sending false signals as does Genie if you are gone keep it to yourself frustrated that you are tweeting stuff and then erase it why stir people up?


it didnt seem it at that moment


Uh, wasn’t Mary Ficket the first to win Best Actress and Elizabeth Hubbard the 2nd? (Susan Flannery was the next year, I believe.) The very first year the awards were given was by announcement; it wasn’t until Year 2 that they were televisied. I recall a publicity photo of Mary being given her statue on the original Martin house living room.


Oh, I remember the Martin House-and the living room! What memories!


Where was kelly monaco?She encouraged billy miller to nominate himself.She should have been with him at the awards.Something is wrong with this picture.


Probably scared for her life I hear they are all getting death threats! Really it is all make believe SB been back for six months and I hear still no romance nothing moving forward but hey retcon son front and center


Favourite moments were all the DAYS wins. It’s the little show that keeps on chugging. Any success or recognition means the world to this show (after nearly two decades of winning nada from the Academy). When they won the Directing Award, it felt like the whole show won a million dollars. The excitement was palpable. Also seeing Greg and James win their long overdue awards individually….it looked like the statue meant the absolute world to them! Their speeches were so humble and heart-felt. I’m happy that they finally feel the love they have earned.

Loved the Hays’ tribute, including Deirdre’s “Hey mom” and a Bryan Cranston cameo. How cool!

Also liked Ron’s nod to Deirdre that she is “the Queen”. Unlike another show singling out a star from their show, I felt this was more an honour that everyone with a right mind already acknowledges and was just the right thing to finally say out loud on that stage.

Can you tell which show I was rooting for 😉 ?


“GREAT write”

I am giddy … beyond belief that DOOL LIVES

it’s a full hour of treat … given by @RC. yeah… I do it… Ron Carlivati ; keep the commendations going

“your team is excelling”

when this show is being rewarded with WINS … yeah… WINS @

best directing
best writing
best show

LOL… my heart … from his debut give or take July, 2017. 9 months out the start gate. my show; is ON


Love Deidre Hall!


outside of Francis Reid and MacDonald Carey – Mr. and Mrs. Tom Arnold. Dr. Tom and OUR dearly beloved Alice.

out comes Deidre Hall – superstar… daytime’ reigning Queen . Sure. I get that she may acknowledge such… after Susan Lucci , All My Children; heck… after every other actor who made this genre WORK.

Marlena Evans and John Black : swoon , heart takes, reached out…. love REELS like no other

I adore this woman… and it’s so great to have her grandson back… where he belongs… in arms length of her grandson… Will


boy is my mind and type go off key

Mr. and Mrs. Tom “Horton”


^^^^ Suzanne Rogers is HOT


I was so tickled for the ladies @The REAL.

Tamara, Adrienne, Loni, Jeannie – the giddy excitement SURPRISE was a HOOT

??? how it’s been on since 2013? surprised me.

I WATCH THIS SHOW. it started out as – supporting – people of color.

TURNS out . I like the mix of women. they seemed a little “young” for me to be watching… Loni 46. didn’t know that.

the two hooks –

Tamara – her “innocent” upbringing… from child star to marriage and parenting… I find pleasant… her commentary makes me laugh.

Jeannie Mai – her add on with culture … mixing of all people of color.. especially womanhood. her intuitiveness. she likes to talk. they need to feature more food… Asian, African American, latino foods… . i’m so glad she’s putting on weight. cutie petootie

Loni – I like her grounding the show… on topical information. she “keeps” the REAL moving. she’s emotional and I LIKE THAT a lot. sharing tears

Adrienne – she’s the underling… and adds no less. she’s the latino MIX. I like her enthusiasm. her energy is on .

this is better than Whoopie, and Joy… no? ugh


the two hooks – okey dokey

I like Tamara and Jeannie the best


their opening “song and dance” NUMBER

catch it. my sassy girls giving it

I do my version ala Olivia Newton John


I loved the General Hospital sequence and the dedication sequence to Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes. Loved seeing all of my old favorites from General Hospital-the veterans, and the stars of the ’80’s and ’90’s-when the show was action-packed and full of good stories and talent. Unfortunately, that is not the case today.
Could Laura Wright be anymore obnoxious? Seriously, is she 15? She acts like a teenager. Time to grow-up. I wish that they chose someone else to do the opening monologue for the anniversary tribute.


Great show… Beautifully done; loved the opening number and seeing Finola, Michelle, John York, Wes Ramsey all “getting down to the beat.” So fun. And, the dresses were more gorgeous than what I’ve seen at the Academy Awards. Some really stunning designs. I thought Katherine Kelly Lang’s dress was stunning; she looked gorgeous and Greg Vaughan is both stunning AND gorgeous; LOL; he really is THAT good looking.

Loved the old clips, the montage of GH from “back in the day” to present.

Glad Days won; great show and yet they’re still last in the ratings. Doesn’t make sense. They need to hire some different publicity people.

Lovely tribute to Bill and Susan Hayes; loved seeing clips of their soap love story clips knowing that it led to their real life one.

Just really nice done and beautiful production visually.




“…Greg Vaughan is both stunning AND gorgeous; LOL; he really is THAT good looking ”

nothing MORE – need – be said…

he’s that g-o-o-d. outside of thee obvious

I posted … @GH can have their TWINS ( Jason and Drew )

@DAYS at the time of Steve Burton redress ; gunned us down with Greg Vaughan and Eric Martsolf. hot me out

had the brothers dueling and piercing wit and fighting brouhaha goings ON . over Nicole. it was tantamount to spent.. it was sensation

I couldn’t be happier for all the team that is: Days of OUR Lives


fave was the days love was soooooo dissapointed by casey moss not winning loved the gh crowd getting shut down the press loves them and while i am still glad 4 shows thrive gh is the one i cannot stand to watch love days yandr and like bandb
