Kassie DePaiva deserves Best Actress (: Worst omissions: Judi Evans and Billy Flynn and Casey Moss ): Most of our Goldies winners (goldderby.com) 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,… Read more »

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.… Read more »

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!]

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
