    Kassie DePaiva deserves Best Actress (: Worst omissions: Judi Evans and Billy Flynn and Casey Moss ):

    Most of our Goldies winners ( have been nominated – except for Christopher Sean and Judi Evans – Kassie DePaiva, Justin Hartley, Nicholas Bechtel and Brooklyn Rae Silzer. Altho we chose Days for Best Writing, B&B was our pick for Best Directing. Days was our winner for Best Drama Series. Eileen Davidson won for Guest Performer for Days.

    I really want Kassie to win the most!

    Supporting Actress is a four way tie for me without Judi Evans as a nominee. Jessica Collins, Peggy McCay, Melissa Reeves or Lauralee Bell all would be worthwhile winners.

    Supporting Actor is the worst category for me this year, only Jacob Young really deserves to win imo. Bryan Datillo didn’t submit, but I wish Christopher Sean had been nominated.

    I liked all the guests, but- my favs of the evening;

    Dee Wallace
    Bryan Craig
    Maura West

    When actors of BB and Days were on, I went to the kitchen, bathroom and took garbage out etc, because I am not familiar with any of them (only watch GH/Y&R..

    oh the trivia questions — I didn’t get one right LOL

    Michael Fairman really brings us the best (he has a great job!) It was fun ..

      Su…I’m with you on your favs. Loved Dee. Wish she had had more time in GH. Little bias in Laura’s part when it came to talking with Bryan?…but well deserved. Can just see Maura, Laura and “some of the girls” at a pool party comparing notes…with the beverage MF didn’t supply. Did listen to the father of Kayla from B&B. He had a lot to say, and really moved the bar up in his role.

    I caught the tail end of the show… Bryan Craig : Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series.

    he deserves to win… not matter how much the Corinthos clan is featured… bar none… it’s Morgan who stands out… his character has the most ENERGY

    I loved the scene he submitted… when he and Kiki left Port Charles and went to … what he told Kiki… was the family cabin…but turned out it wasn’t… he worked it…
    his manic on the edge cliff hanger was magic to watch… he nailed it without OVER THE TOP

    Congratulations on a wonderful job. It is easy to get jaded in our respective communities of work, but after listening to you, Laura and David, it made me appreciate the love all of you have for the soap opera genre.

    It was so great to hear the wonderful respect all of the actors have for the soap community. Jacob Young, Tyler Christopher, Maura West, Melissa Reeves, Dee Wallace, Lindsey Godfey and Bryan Craig were so appreciative not only for their nominations, but for all of the hard work that goes into producing five shows a week, 52 weeks a year. I loved Tyler’s story of how much he learned from Tony Geary, Genie Francis and even a young Jonathan Jackson.

    Most importantly, it was refreshing to hear what a great cheerleader Laura Wright was for so many of the female nominees. We live in a world that constantly pits women against each other, yet Laura was so excited for Maura West, Finola, Missy Reeves and the incredible Kassie D. She was so nurturing and sincerely thrilled for Brooklyn and Bryan. She couldn’t have been more wonderful and lovely.

    Beautiful job, Michael. We appreciate your hard work in keeping the soap community alive and keeping the fans informed.

      Agree with your comments. Laura and MF really brought their “awards” to life.

    Michael, what a great Soap Nation episode! You and Laura should be the host of the DT Emmys! Speaking of, if the awards are not broadcasted, I’m hoping you do a post Emmy show here and interview as many winners as you can. [You and Laura!]

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

DAYS Elani Wedding (Photos): What Did You Think Of The Nuptials?

This week on Days of our Lives saw the first African-American couple to be married on-screen in the 54-year history of Days of our Lives.  Now while Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) tried before in a previous ceremony, this one did the job … they are now officially husband and wife!

The ceremony was attended by Lani’s dad, Abe Reynolds (James Reynolds), her mother Tamara Price (Marily McCoo), Billy Davis Jr.  as a former FBI mentor to Eli, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) – it was her restaurant after all and she is Eli’s grandmother.  Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) presided over the ceremony.

There were some unwelcome guests at the ceremony as well; leading the bride to question, are we doomed?  Why does this keep happening to us everytime we tried to get hitch!

However, fate was on Lani and Eli’s side this day, as even Gabi (Camila Banus) with her antics, and a shocking arrival from Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel), couldn’t rain on this day.  Vivian even tried to shoot the bride, but thanks to Rafe (Galen Gering) saving the day and armed with news that her son Stefan (Brandon Barash) could be alive; he informs Viv firmly that she would be killing someone for the wrong reason, even though Vivian is in disbelief that her son is alive.  Next, she is whisked out of the ceremony.

Lani still feeling rattled by all the wedding interruptus gets a sign she should marry the man she loves; when her mother, who needed to go lie down earlier, as she was feeling faint, was able to show back up just in time to restart the wedding.


During the ceremony, Eli mentions the loss of little David Abraham and the struggles they went through, but how in the end it brought then closer together.  After the rings are exchanged and they are pronounced man and wife, the newlyweds “jump the broom” a wonderful tradition and a symbol of African-American heritage, where the sweeping of the broom signifies sweeping away all the bad energy.  After they sweep the broom, Elani jumps over it.

In a behind-the-scenes of the wedding segment released this week on the DOOL app, Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey talk about the inclusion of the ‘jump the broom’ moment in the episode, and how they suggested the idea to DAYS Co-EP Albert Alaar, and how  it was written into the episode.

So, what did you think of Lani and Eli’s wedding? Did you enjoy it? Let us know via the comment section below, but first check out this wedding photo gallery of the big day!

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.


The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International

So, what do you think of the ratings performance of this year’s Daytime Emmys?  Comment below.
