Really? They can’t do better than Sheryl? She is just disgusting with her lewd remarks to/about every good looking man there. Can’t stand her and was hoping TPTB would have sense enough to find someone with CLASS!

I completely agree. That is the main reason I don’t watch The Talk. I pity every male guest that goes on that show because I know darn right well, the minute he walks over to greet Sheryl she is going to be all over him like a cheap suit. It sickens me.

I hope the men all wear bibs, because she will be drooling all over them.
She really is a smart, funny person, but wish she had a little more class and self control around men.

I hope they do their homework and know who’s who and on what show they appear. Less time about them and more time on the daytime drama stars for me, please. Let’s see some clips and memories and skip the silly production numbers.

Why must the Academy always resort to hosts that no one even cares about when they could have daytime drama’s actors/actresses host the show? Are they that ashamed of daytime drama’s that they’d rather have “big name” folks host the show instead of someone who isn’t that well known?

Daytime Emmys award shows should be on TV
Just like all award shows. It is just as important as all the other award shows. This is not fair to all the fans. Not everyone can watch on a website or computer or phone.
To really get the full enjoyment of the award, winners, and entertainment you need to be able to watch it on TV.
The President of NATAS doesn’t care about the fans, the audience who watches theses shows to put it on TV.

I would rather watch an ant poop than watch one second of Cheryl Underwood!

Cheering on Maurice Benard and Max Gail for leading and supporting actors. They carried the best story on daytime last year. A new great acting duo was born.

All this Sheryl Underwood hate is so evil and unnecessary. She’s funny and a soap watcher. Your insides are dirty.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
