I just checked Itunes – it’s not up yet.. Hope it will be up soon, though preferably, it would be awesome to have a direct download link so I don’t have to itunes to download it.

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 favorite performance and your winner, Jonathan Jackson, blew my mind. I literally couldn’t take my eyes off him. It was so intense and forceful and vitriolic. It was watching a bomb explode. He is one of the best actors ever. I know we will see more great performances from him. Having said that, I don’t like the storyline with the actress who plays the Irish girl. Her accent is annoying and the pattern in which she talks has a cadence that doesn’t help. I want Lucky with Elizabeth. Well, we will see how your picks end up at the Emmys. Good program, Michael..Looking forward to your next months show……

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.

Another great podcast!!! The spirit awards were very fun and very accurate. I love that Florencia won! Lexi Ainsworth and Jonathan Jackson were also the only choices to win in those categories! Loved the interviews and the hosts! Thanks Michael!

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 Luke/ Reid duo….that’s why the fans were so distraught with how ATWT ended.I’m disgusted and it seems some people have favorites and not always because of their body of work!Anyway, that’s my opinion!

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 shows, and given that many shows still don’t credit the actors in the opening credits, it would be really difficult for anyone to week through all the pre-noms to make an informed decision – unless their job is to cover soaps. ALL soaps.

It is not unusual for journalists to be the arbiters in other fields. For example, in Major League Baseball, it is the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) who vote for the major year-end accolades (MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year) as well as the all-important Hall of Fame inductees – though of course, their selections are not without controversy as well. Having a two step process where the journalists cull through the myriads of candidates, and having the peers make final selections based on the actual reels seems to me to be a good compromise.

I also thought the discussion about web soaps was interesting. I couldn’t confirm stats (I admit – I haven’t watched Venice yet – I tried to subscribe in Season 1 and after 2 failed attempts, I gave up and haven’t had time to go back), but it looks like Venice produced 12 episodes x 12 minutes in Season 2. That’s 144 minutes. To put that in the same category as the daily soaps (200+ episodes x 40-some minutes each) and call it “more consistent” just doesn’t seem fair. Yes, I think the web soaps should be recognized and are probably “better” than the televised soaps, but I bet they’re no better than the best 144 minutes of the year in most of the traditional soaps.

Thanks again for a thought-provoking podcast,
-LL

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.

Days of our Lives fans love her as as Carrie Brady, and are often very happy when they find out Christie Clark is back for a visit taping episodes of the NBC soap opera.  But that’s not what’s happening right now.  Right now, we need Christie to get all her strength back.

Clark shared via her Instagram today a health update on her battle with the coronavirus that hit both her and her husband while they have been living in the United Kingdom.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”

Send your well-wishes to Christie and Tom as they are on currently getting stronger and recovering from the virus via the comment section below.
