Michael, just got through listening to your podcast. It was great fun and I was anxious to hear who the winners were in your SOS awards. Nelson Branco was the decider of the award and worked along with you to bring us a different and relevant award show. I was pleased that Florencia was chosen as best actor in her category . I probably wouldn’t have given best actor to Michael Muhney. I was very pleased that Lexi Ainsworth won. She really had a tough story line on GH, as did Chad Duell. But both actors were outstanding. But, My… Read more »

Thank you, Nelson and TV Guide Canada for recognizing Florencia Lozano for her talent, commitment, and consistent performance. Well done, overall.
Michael, I am very pleased that you have the distinction of taste to support and recognize Florencia.

Michael, I loved listening to the show. I love hearing your voice. The only show I watch is Y&R, so I don’t know the other charactors, but I enjoyed the dialog. Keep up the good work. Joanie M.

Dear Michael, thank you for this cute interview with Eric (Sheffer-Stevens). And it´s so cute and awesome (and well-deserved), that Eric won the SOS Award. I so much loved to hear his voice again.

It was truely wonderful to hear from ESS again. I am very happy that he won the SOS. His portrayal as Dr Reid Oliver will never be forgotton … and the mantra of Reid’s true fans will be “What train?”

I can’t believe that Van Hansis was omitted once again.i think it’s a tragedy that the old saying out of sight , out of mind is proving true.To me Van was the total package, good looks, great acting, and believability.He deserved to be rewarded for the marvelous work he put out for the last 5 years, but especially in 2010.I miss him like so many others and can’t believe there was no mention of him in these awards.Shame on those that put these awards together.And to let Brooke/ and Stephanie win over Luke and Reid is a crime.People loved the… Read more »

As you predicted, your readers (at least a big portion of them!) were pleased by the selection of Eric Sheffer Stevens 😉 However, I wanted to comment more broadly on the whole podcast. I thought the whole thing was really well done. I really appreciated hearing Nelson’s thoughts (as well as the other hosts’) and it came across as very thoughtful – that responsibility was taken to pick the best candidate, not just the favorite one. I agree – the Emmy process is broken. I know many of the actors don’t even watch their own shows, much less the other… Read more »

Interesting take on the web soaps. You are right. It doesn’t seem fair.

Actually Venice was 12 episodes ranging in 12 min to 21 min…in total season 2 gave the fans over 3 hours of original story.

Thanks for the correction, but the argument doesn’t change. Putting 180 (or even 244) minutes up against 200 episodes x 40 minutes still doesn’t seem like an apples to apples comparison to me.

Raven Bowens is the New Chanel on DAYS

There has been a casting switcheroo at Days of our Lives.   Precious Way is out in the role of Chanel Dupree and the part had been recast.

Way debuted on-screen back in March of 2021, but now comes word, first via Jason 47’s Facebook page, that Chanel will be played by actress Raven Bowens.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Bowens to first air on-screen on the July 6th episode.  Apparently, she has been taping at the DAYS set since April.

Raven has previously appeared on All Rise, Insecure, The New Edition Story and Future Man.

You can follow her on Instagram here.

So, what do you think of the Chantal switch? Comment below.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
