I like if I confess that I want more soap stars instead of talk show/culinary show hosts, I’m being greedy, but that’s how I feel. I will treasure seeing what I consider the “true stars” of daytime when I watch the Emmys. Best wishes to all.

Also, I wanted to add that I am happy that they are interviewing the winners. It means they’ll have a chance to really say what they want without the orchestra playing them off their important moment.

Love Giada, but her interview questions were SO lame. The interviewer needs to be someone with an appreciation of daytime drama which she clearly does not! In some instances she asked questions with answers that the performer had given in their acceptance speech. The idea is good but the implementation fell through.

I have a good feeling that this telecast will be much better than those in recent years (which were not very good at all). It sounds as though HLN has a good pulse on what is important to share with the audience! I love the idea of interviewing the top winners live on-stage! Looking forward to tuning in on Sunday evening.

Yawn. Don’t like the lists of interviewers.

I know right. Jacqueline MacInnes Wood interviewing Lead Actor? That is a train wreck waiting to happen.

She’s a presenter, not an interviewer.

Can’t wait to see the show , it sounds like it is going to be really good.

Personally I don’t like the idea. Why can’t we just let people enjoy their moment privately without sticking a mike in front of them the minute they win and ask silly questions like How are you feeling? Did you think you would win? Where are going to put the Emmy?
Yes I know there is a market for instant everything nowadays, but what’s next, following stars into the bathroom to see how they pee?

I think this is a great idea. It helps give a more focused response from recipients. Kudos to HLN – they are going the extra mile. Looking forward to the awards.

Im sick of Bethany Frankel…why not former soap stars?

I’ll be watching and rooting for my GH people. Still not happy about the people that were snubbed. Kelly Sullivan and Robin Mattson anyone? But the show needs our support, otherwise there may be no more Emmy shows in the future.

I hope Underwood can manage to stop mugging & shut up long enough to let the Lead Actor winner to speak. She grates on my last nerve.

Please, please let OLTL win drama series so Erika Slezak can make that announcement. It would be amazing.

I’m glad Jeanne Cooper is getting a Memorial clip but why was Beverlee McKinsey’s death ignored in 2009?

Mo

I’d rather see the clips submitted than interviews. And doing it right after they win, winner probably won’t be thinking coherently. They’re already going to be doing their thank you speech, right? Why do we need more?

Mo

Microphone is going to be pretty crowded for the lead actor and actress awards. I guess they have all the nominees for the younger actor/tress awards, but it’s a bit much.

I will watch, and give HLN a chance. we of course would prefer more soap actors, but for now we should take what we can get, and thank HLN for doing this. When Julie Chen comes on I will do what I do when the talk comes on, change the channel. My show was on where hers is, when her husband cancelled ATWTs and put her on? I do not watch any daytime tv until GH comes on , watch shut TV off then and comeback to watch jeopardy. HLN so far seems to have a little respect for soaps and us who watch them.
