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.

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.]

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?

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
