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.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
