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..

Patrick

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

Frank Valentini did not escalate or rise to the occasion

Patrick

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

Patrick
Patrick

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

Patrick

my heart is full of James Reynolds

Sir : my man… “congratulations”

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

Jules

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 “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 😉 ?

Patrick
Patrick

“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

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

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

Patrick
Patrick

the two hooks – okey dokey

I like Tamara and Jeannie the best

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.

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
