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 online? Streaming the show isn’t going to be any use to them! (I’m speaking for my mother here!)

I think it’s disgusting that none of the networks or major cable channels would bother to televise this show. And it’s not just about the soaps…it’s also for talk shows, cooking shows, children’s shows, daytime news shows…the fuckin’ networks are snubbing them all!

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 been for 100 years. So what’s to watch?

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 will LOL ..

I wish this years Emmies well and hope all have fun !!

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 Colleen Zenk to handout flyers at intersections to invite everyone to the grand event! This would save them the hassle of putting out “thrilling” press releases like this one and would give the unemployed (but talented) Zimmer and Zenk a few dollars that they may likely need!!

Honestly, doesn’t this organization have any dignity? They need to ditch trying to have a grand affair at night for this event. They’re trying to keep it on par with the Emmys and the Oscars and, with each further decline, it is more and more apparent that it isn’t. They should scale this down drastically and make it a classy but somewhat simple lunch event — no red carpet, no overblown song and dance numbers. Just a simple awards show. With all of the broadcast channels available to broadcast this event, it is embarassing that NONE of them are televising it. It is a clear statement about the current state of serials.

It is very sad.

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!!

So will it be available to view at a later time on the interne? As I won’t be home since I can’t TiVo it will I be able to watch it later (if I decide too) not sure I care to watch it now but in case I do was just wondering?
Do you possibly know?

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 last minute.

I wish the actors from GH well, but I won’t be watching.

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.

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”

And my costars, and , are doing the best work of their lives!”  That was followed by, T”hank you for the chance to work with you on your first foray into soaps! I am humbled and honored. We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.
