iVillage Chief Correspondent Kelly Wallace stopped by the Today show Wednesday morning to unveil the winners in the IVillage 3rd Annual Entertainment Awards.

More than 530,000 votes were cast, with people from around the world weighing in on the stars, movies and TV shows that got you talking in 2011 in some very interesting categories …  and the soaps were not ignored, but included in a very key category!

One Life to Live’s final episode received 32 percent of the votes and was named the Saddest TV Farewell! All My Children was second with 27 percent of the vote. The Office’s final episode with Steve Carell had 21 percent and was in third place.  Oprah Winfrey’s last installment of The Oprah Show landed in fourth place, and Regis Philben’s exit on Live with Regis and Kelly was fifth.

What once again is a real kick in the teeth to One Life, is when talking about the category of the Saddest TV Farewell on the live television segment,  a clip from All My Children’s finale episode was shown instead! Can’t this show get a break even when voted by the fans their saddest television farewell, and the show they miss so dearly?   Watch the clip after the jump when they talk about One Life’s category, and then let us know what you think about OLTL’s  bittersweet victory!

Very happy OLTL won most missed show. They deserved it. Actually I didnt mind the AMC clip. When Michael Knight gave AGNIS NIXONS opening of AMC the rich and the poor the meak… Etc. It kind of just placed “Agnis on top. We miss our soaps and hope to have a rebirth.

what vicki said at the end of one life to live broke my heart and pretty much said everything everyone was feeling ,so sad that we can no longer visit with our friends in landview,they will all be missed ,so i think that scene would have been the right choice to put on for the most saddest missed tv farewell .one life to live won that honor and thats the way it should have presented on the today show,all my children came in second.

I can’t believe the clip shown was of the show that was named number two….gosh…poor OLTL can get any respect from the people in charge…but the viewers sure do…. I know I am still sad over it going off the air and I am mad about it too!

That made me mad also. I’m glad I wasn’t the only one. It is quite amazing that OLTL never got its “due”, ever…even though it was, and will always be the #1 ABC daytime soap. Sad indeed!

What can I say. All My Children is the show that everybody knows, while One Life to Live is the show that only soap opera fans know.

The cancellation of One Life to Live did not nearly get the huge media attention that All My Children and Guiding Light got.

The mainstream media has always shown favoritism toward AMC because it was the show that Erica Kane was on.When AMC went off the air People devoted an entire magazine to that soap.When OL went dark they only got a few pages in a regular issue of People.

I loved the fact that Oprah came in 4th !!! BEHIND One Life To Live and All MY Children !!!
Perhaps in her address that she can not save the soaps and bring them to her network, is that she can’t even save herself.

ABC when will you finally admit to the HUGE mistake you have made?

I don’t agree with ALL that U are saying and some of it I do. I have a post on here about the whole Oprah thing, Heather or Heidi and I were speaking about it. I can’t remember where it is, but it’s in the last week or so., so I’m not going to get into ALL of it again. I hope U see my post on it. But I would suggest, ALL OF YOU follow Oprah on twitter and say these things, so she can know soap fans are livid with her, and perhaps she made a mistake. My… Read more »

Take that Oprah 4th and soaps are 1st & 2nd maybe you should have given more consideration to putting soaps on OWN

Oprah needs a major reality check. The soaps made Oprah. With out the devoted ABC soap fans she would be nothing. Her rising star would have fizzled many years ago. She needs to have an AHAA moment. She needed the soaps as a lead in for her show. She should have mentioned us in her gratitude journal. She should kiss every ABC soap fans ass because she is who she is because of us. I am not susprised she came in fourth or her network failed.

She does have a right to her opinion but, she made the WRONG decision about the soaps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She didn’t even want to consider the idea………… Enough about her……………….Did ever hear the christian song where Oprah’s name is mentioned???????? It goes like this in short: ” STOP ASKING OPRAH WHAT TO DO!”

I was thinking the same exact thing ladies!!! So true!!! Her network would do sooo much better if she adopted the cancelled soaps. What a shame!!! I’m surprised that she doesn’t see the value in soaps.

OLTL is an ABC property. Maybe NBC asked for permission to air a clip from OLTL and they were refused. I watch Today and they already had the clip from AMC because they showed in went it went off the air in September 2011

I voted for OLTL. Glad AMC got #2. The results didn’t surprise me at all. I wish someone would use these mainstream media stories to get some support to bring these shows back. The fans have spoken. Again.

One Life to Live was always ABC (and Agnes Nixon’s) red headed stepchild. If Agnes Nixon had a favorite, it was All My Children. And she was not one to hide that fact.

Victoria Konefal Returns to Days of our Lives

Cin fans will be happy to know the other half of the DAYS super couple will be back on-screen later this month as Ben (Rob Scott Weston) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) love story is set to continue.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Look for Konefal to first appear back on-screen during the January 28th episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

When the missing in action Ciara returns she will bring with her a new character named Rhodes played by Jason Downs.

No word on how long Konefal’s stay will be this time, since she has been off-contract with the show since last year.

However, reportedly this this will be Ciara in the flesh, not a conjured up or “Vision” of her that comes to Ben in his time of need.

What do you think has happened to Ciara since the car explosion she was supposedly part of? Glad to know Victoria is on her way back on-air to DAYS? Comment below.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.

Mike expressed: ” I think #MLKDay  is a good day to tell you “Son of The South” will be out Feb. 5th. I hope it strengthens the dialogue our country is currently having about the fight for equality on all fronts. Exec produced by Oscar-winner Spike Lee. Proud of this one.@son_movie”
