NATAS Chairman Malachy Wienges: "We Are So Thrilled To Be Sharing The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards With A Global Audience In Such An Innovative & Contemporary Fashion!”

This week soap fans learned that for the first time since 1984, NATAS does not have a televised home for the gold-fest of the upcoming 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards!  However, there is always a plan B!

So, for the first time the ceremonies which On-Air On-Soaps previously announced will be streamed live online beginning at 5PMPST/8PMEST emanating live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday night, June 22nd.

NATAS chairman Malachy Wienges offered this statement, alluding to the fact that with the show available by live-stream, fans from around the world can converge and watch the ceremonies live for the first time everywhere: “We are so thrilled to be sharing 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with a global audience in such an innovative and contemporary fashion. We are confident that the expert team we’ve brought on will flawlessly execute an evening that celebrates the outstanding talent being honored and allows fans to be a part of the action.”

With the event being streamed live for the first time in the history of the broadcast; Wienges has brought in Spike Jones, Jr and SJ2 Entertainment who will be producing the live show at the Beverly Hilton with Terry D. Peterson, Owner, Artistic Director, Verite Productions, Inc.  Paul Colichman and HERE Media will handle all aspects of social media for the event.  The Daytime Emmys will be made available as previously reported via live-stream by going to www.daytimeemmys.net

So, what do you think of the concept of the live-stream?  It certainly gives the show added flexibility in some respects than a televised broadcast, and it has a farther reach around the world.   Share your thoughts below!

Well anything has to be better than last year’s poorly produced show— my hope is they will make the ceremony dignified and respectful — let it truly be an evening for honoring outstanding work whether on soaps, talk, games shows and children’s programming — leave the amateur variety acts and lame comedy writing at the door, and just show clips and announced who the Emmy goes to— simple and to the point.

Amen! I also hope they leave all the production numbers back at HSN and stick to the important stuff…like the awards! I don’t quite get the “fans from around the world can converge and watch the ceremonies live for the first time everywhere” comment. I honestly don’t believe there are millions (much less thousands) of fans “around the world” who give a rat’s ass about our awards shows, so that whole thing is crap. And what about the devoted senior citizen fans who probably don’t have a computer and, more to the point, wouldn’t know how to access the show… Read more »

I agree! I am a longgggg time OLTL fan and I don’t give a rat’s ass or any other rat parts about the emmys. They are a huge joke, a sham, farce. Only 4 soaps? Who’s nominated, everyone. It mattered when there were 12, but now there’s only 4 awful ones, so what is there to “win”. And talk shows. These hosts aren’t qualified to be on a show, let along host one. Let’s see, married to the boss, took all her clothes off, washed up comic, just to start. Then there are the same 3 game shows there have… Read more »

The Daytime Emmy streamed live online from the Beverly Hilton Hotel to ‘global’ audience .. I’m sure that people around the world would want to watch the American Price is Right, the Chew, 4 soaps etc etc get awards LOL .. I doubt those shows are even shown around the world and if they were that someone in Geremy watches them or even would have an interest in the American Daytime Emmy stream.. The Y&R and B&B most likely are the only ones shown internationally.. Many here in USA are not going to watch so hopefully the people in India… Read more »

Maybe this way we won’t have any suits interfering and sticking their two cents worth in. We could actually watch an entertaining show Lets have it be daytime emmys daytime actors .They can walk and talk at the same time. No more nighttime actors hosting. I don’t watch the primetime Emmys or Oscars. The Toni’s put on a great show.

The very foundation of daytime TV is the soaps! The Emmys need to lather up nicely!! More soaps, less Sesame Street!!! More soaps, less games!!!! More Soaps, less “The Talk”!!!!! More soaps, less food!!!!!!! All the other stuff can be thrown into Oscar’s trash can!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Going from a traditional broadcast network to a cable channel to, now none of them wanting to show the Daytime Emmys, streaming on the internet. This definitely is downward trend for this show, a clear reminder of the decline of the daytime serial. This year, the show is at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. With the present trend for this show, next year, maybe they’ll hold the event behind a trash dumpster at the Red Roof Inn in Compton!! No need to worry about broadcasting it on a network or streaming on the internet. They can just get Kim Zimmer and… Read more »

I really hope that viewership is high and that the international community support the Daytime Emmy’s. But this has been a long time coming, just look at the Daytime Emmy’s from the last 5 years. They are a total flop, and those were on TV. I am hoping Live Streaming on the internet will do the Daytime Emmy’s justice this year.

Michael Fairman: Do you know if the show will be geo-coded for the US only. Quite a few of the online shows are not available in Canada. If you know the answer, I’d really appreciate a reply. Thanks !

This article/announcement is NOT that confusing. 5pm eastern/ 8pm pacific. It’s a live stream for anyone anywhere so they’ll make sure everyone who wants to see it can no matter what part of the world they’re in.

The only confusing side to this whole thing is why they decided to stream the Daytime Emmy Awards from the lobby of the Beverly Hilton Hotel while people are checking in…oh wait…are you sure??? …My sources tell me they HAVE secured a room of sort…THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT!!

I wasn’t gonna watch anyway after the way they snubbed GH, now I have even more reason not to watch. I’ve had a bad experience on the few occasions when I’ve tried to watch something streaming live on the net. It’s a shame to see how far the Emmys have fallen. I used to love watching them back in the day when they were huge must see events, like when Susan Lucci won her first Emmy, or the way the crowd used to roar every time GH would win for best show. This feels like something slapped together at the… Read more »

Wow, yet another nail in the coffin for daytime soaps.

We now have all three networks that do not think that the Daytime Emmmy’s are worthy of a television broadcast.

Very sad indeed.

Live stream is great for the young people who will want to watch it…but how about for senior citizens who have watched soaps since they first started and DO NOT own a computer to watch it live stream?
It is quite sad that that the older generation look forward to there daily soap fix everyday and more so to the one year they can watch the soap Emmy…Guess some people must lose out and sadly its the soaps biggest fans.

The whole streaming thing didn’t work out so well for AMC and OLTL – this is a REALLY bad idea. No one will watch.

Their love and support continue to astonish us.  We can’t wait to share these special performances with them and help raise money for so many in need during this difficult time.”

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
