Wouldn’t it be fun to have some stars from our cvancelled soaps be in the presenters mix? Faves from ATWT, GL or AW, as well as AMC and OLTL!

It would be fun, but they would have to pay their own airfare and the cost of the seat at the show.

I know, which is BS. But I hope many will see it as an investment in their career and how much it would mean to their loyal fans. Also, this could be their last chance to attend.

rachel ray????????????? why would they choose her as a presenter?? when we were campaigning to keep amc & oltl from being cancelled she said that soaps were a dying genre & the fans needed to just deal with it,
not a good choice as far as i am concerned…………………jmo

What a terrible thing to say………..Rachal Ray should go and wash some dishes & clean up her cooking mess !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is so wrong from the truth….Soap fans aren’t interested in her cooking show..I could care less about cooking shows…….Any cooking show I find BORING..These shows make you climb the walls of bordum……………………….I am still interested in my stories. That will never change..This is what I like..And I stick to it…She should be on the food network..That’s where all these cooking boring shows belong..Stay on their own food channel..Not on the major networks……………………

I agree with you susan m, shes another one on my can’t stand list, Hln, rachell ray for a host bad mistake, the majority of people who watch the daytime emmys are soap fans without them I don’t think any one would watch, come on do you think people are tuning in to see barbara walters get a emmy? I don’t think so. Cooking shows are the programs that are boring and should be put on the food channel and not infesting our daytime hours.Talk, Food, and just plain stupid shows are all over the place on cable, Give me drama I don’t need to learn how to cook, I will go to the news channels to get my news that or my local news. rachell ray, give me a break.

Only one soap star and 2 talk show hosts, Hopefully that will change as we get closer to the big day. I could care less about who will win best dopy talk show, I pick oscar the grouch to win in that category. game shows are interesting I do watch 3 of them and they are always in the running, and one of them always wins. This year I am hearing it will be dedicated to One life to live and All my children, That will be a tearjerker. Seeing that will make it even more final that it is today.

I am not sure Erika Sleazak is a good choice for a host for many reason. She is probably the best daytime actress (sorry Kim Zimmer fans) but she doesn’t have the star power. she could host a little segment but not be the host. Great actress but not enough clout. Remember daytime emmy’s are more than soaps and even then Erika was known for OLTL very few daytime stars transcend soaps let alone daytime – Alison Sweeney, Kristian Alfonso, Deidre Hall, maybe Tony Geary, Genie Francis, the guy who plays Victor Newman on YR, Cameron Mathison and Susan Lucci. It would be nice to see Susan Lucci do it one more time; one would hope she would get al lifetime achievement award sometime too. Lucci would be a better choice if Lifetime picks up Lucci and Devious Maids. She already has some new reality show too and she has done some night time guest spots as well as a spot in Gloria Estefan’s Hotel Nacional so she still has some clout and public interest. HLN isn’t exactly a heavy hitter; this could be painful. I hope it isn’t too sketch or budget like. Scramble. It could be a very full nostalgic program if Dick Clarkis thrown into the mix. It will be sad if AMC, OLTL and Dick Clark have to share the limelight just like when Farrah Fawcett died at the same time as Michael Jackson – he just beat it. I don’t think this show is going to fair too well; sadly with the loss of AMC and OLTL I wonder if the daytime emmy’s will become no longer prime time interest – nice work ABC. You not only destroyed two soaps you killed a magazine or two and the daytime emmy’s. Let’s hope ABC doesn’t go belly up too because I can’t believe the backlash.

I think Cameron Matheson (though, I’m not a big fan) and Allison Sweeney would be good choices. Their careers have definitely expanded beyond soaps. They would do a great job and represent everyone very well.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
