I just finished watching the Daytime Emmys. Two comments. Way too much emphasis on ‘Maria’. Sesame Street is not daytime television. It is kids programming.
2- Did someone at GH give the wrong sheet music to the music director?? Every time GH won they played THE OLD THEME!

1- its because the Lifetime Acheivement honoree was Sonia Manzano, who played maria. plus anything starting from 2:00 am to 6pm, the Academy considers it daytime television.
2- Yeah that surprising. but, i think maybe the old theme was easier to plsy with a band than the new one.

Eric is correct regarding what the Academy considers ‘Daytime’ tekevision. However the question to ask is ‘Who is the target audience of this awards show?’ It is us…the soap crowd. When it was announced that the awards were not going to be televised who got upset? The daytmie drama contingent. Or the 5 year olds who watch Sesame Street? Surely there is someone in the daytime drama field who deserved a lifetime achievement award. The amount of time devoted to honoring a performer from Sesame Street was disproportionate. I love Rita Moreno however she hasnt been on The Electric Company… Read more »

I actually enjoyed the segment to Sonia and liked seeing her clips and I do not watch Sesame Street. She apparently has been in the biz for 40 years.

I watched the daytime Emmy’s tonight. I thought it was understated. Considering they were in a hotel banquet room the production was not too bad. I was glad there was no commercials. Most unnecessary talk was left out and presentation ran rather smoothly. I am glad I got to see the production.

I have never seen Sesame Street. However, it is a daytime program. I, too, enjoyed Sonya’s segment. She and Obba gave the best acceptance speeches.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
