NATAS Debuts New Daytime Blog Page! The Debate Rages On: Should Daytime Emmys Return To Their Roots And Be Broadcast During The Day?

Today NATAS’ official website EmmyOnline.org unveiled its new Daytime Television Blog Page with its first entry, which discusses the evolution and its dedicated to  NATAS history and the influence and contributions that daytime programming has had on American culture over the years.

The new blog post contains some memorable clips including Luke and Laura’s classic wedding on General Hospital to the day Walter Cronkite broke into As the World Turns with the shocking news of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and more!

In addition, the new blog piece brings up the debate that is still raging today:  Should the Daytime Emmys who often are struggling to find a primetime home for their awards show, go back to their roots and have the show air during the day?

Their first post ends with: “In the beginning, a category defined as “Outstanding Achievement in Daytime Programming” was added for a one time only presentation in 1968. Due to voting rules of the time, judges could opt to either award one or decide whether no one nominated was deserving of the golden statuette. This snub outraged the Daytime community and led to the first separate awards show made just for daytime programming, which was broadcast in 1974 from the Channel Gardens at Rockefeller Center in New York, with hosts Barbara Walters and Peter Marshall.  Originally aired during the daytime hours, they moved to nighttime in 1991. The debate over whether it should return to daytime has raged on since.”

So, what do you think should the Daytime Emmys air during the day? And not as an evening red carpet affair? Let us know!

I have been suggesting this for the past 5 years, and going back to the basics and focus on the daytime audience in daytime. It could pre-empt a talk show for the day.

Hopefully they would pre-empt two shows so we’d have a couple hours.
Three o’clock on a Friday afternoon would be nice, then everyone could still dress up for the occasion.
Gotta have a Red Carpet, ya know! LOL

Last year’s Emmys were a disgrace and if NATAS doesn’t care @ producing a decent product they should get out of daytime. The Emmys have always been about the actors, and they have been ridiculed enough. The networks reaping profits off the backs of daytime fans, should be held accountable. Either a network show, daytime makes sense, or give it up.

No , they should stay in primetime because more people would watch it. Back when it aired during the day , it was when more people who watched daytime were stay-home parents or retired among other possibilities. The only way it should broadcast is LIVE coast to coast on either broadcast or a cable net that everyone who is a fan of daytime has access to (e.g. Broadcast : Fox , The CW , My Network TV or NBC Cable : A&E , CNN , Fox News , E! or Bravo! ). That is there only option until HLN returns… Read more »

Brian Williams should present the awards during the NBC Nightly News broadcast!!! Turnabout is fair play!!! “We interrupt this news broadcast to hand out daytime emmy awards”.

At the very least, Ken Corday should co-host the nightly news for one night!

Personally I couldn’t give a *******. Now that OLTL is finally gone, I am done with soaps. The daytime Emmys have be a ****** ** ****** show the last few years. No show is better than what they have put on. Everything is digital now, email the actors their awards. How about in nighttime? 😉

Sure. Have them during the day.

CBS has such a strong Daytime lineup, that I think they should pick it up.

I’m sure they’ll be winning some Emmys this year, just like all the years past.

Self promotion.

Before stating my opinion about airing the Daytime Emmy’s show at night or during the daytime, I would like to know which tv show has a higher rating among viewers: Daytime Emmy’s or Primetime Emmy’s. My guess is Daytime Emmy’s. HSN has been doing an excellent job the last two years with their handling of the Daytime Enny’s. Although there may have been a few mishaps, HSN gets a A+ from me for showing much deserved respect to that segment of the television industry. Now to my opinion on the question asked. Keep it at night AND keep it on… Read more »

I have watched the soap AMC from episode 1 until the very last. It was by far much better then the GE soap,they did not have to bring the Mob or the frequent explosions, all the bombing to make it interesting. They had the viewers, but for some reasons, the network decided that the some dumb cooking shows, for already exploding,overweight populations will be much better. Wrong,there are very few people watching it, most people I know,switch to Fox news or just look a for a interesting movie at another channel to fill that slot. AMC was a great soap… Read more »

TONIGHT: All My Children’s Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams Together Again on All-New Episode of ‘Our Kind of People’

The Fox drama, Our Kind of People (9 pm ET/8pm CT), will feature a reunion, of sorts, on tonight’s January 18th episode when Debbi Morgan (Ex-Angie, All My Children) once again shares screen-time with her former on-screen soap opera love, Darnell Williams (Ex-Jesse, All My Children).

While mum’s the word as to Williams role, we know that Debbi plays Angela’s Aunt Piggy on the series, and in last week’s installment, Piggy went to the police station to turn herself in for the murder of her ex-boyfriend years ago.  However, Darnell’s character could hold the key as to what really went down in the murder.

Debbi spoke to TV Line about acting again with Darnell: “We were shooting the scene when Darnell’s character walks through the door for the first time.  And it was the first time we see this character on the show, and I looked at him and shouted, ‘Jesse!’ The director had to yell cut and everyone fell out laughing. It was hilarious. I knew that wasn’t his name on Our Kind of People but I couldn’t help myself. We worked together for so many years as Angie and Jesse and that’s the first thing that came to my mind.”

For those who have not checked out Our Kind of People, it takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful Black elite have come to play for over 50 years.

In story, strong-willed single mom Angela Vaughn (Ex-AMC star, Yaya Decosta) sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her revolutionary hair care line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of Black women, but she soon discovers a dark secret about her own mother’s past that will turn her world upside-down and shake up this community forever. The show is a soapy, thrilling exploration of race and class in America and an unapologetic celebration of Black resilience and achievement.

The series is from writer and executive producer Karin Gist (Star, Grey’s Anatomy) and executive producer Lee Daniels (Empire, The United States Vs. Billie Holiday).

So, will you be watching Debbi and Darnell together on tonight’s Our Kind of People? Comment below.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
