Outstanding Lead Actor Meets Outstanding Younger Actor – Geary & Massey!

On-Air On-Soaps got this very exclusive shot of Days of our Lives  Chandler Massey, the winner of the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series, at last night’s 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards alongside  seven time Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series  Daytime Emmy winner, Anthony Geary from General Hospital!

During the telecast one of the features we liked was having the new guard- the Younger Actor nominees present the Emmy to the Lead Actor winner.    Chandler Massey, many now consider to be one of the finest young actors ever to debut on daytime, and it was also 30 years ago that Anthony Geary won his first Daytime Emmy!

Geary’s award was first up in the evening and during his acceptance speech stated,  “Thank you so much. I got lost, which I tend to do. John McCook, Bobby Woods, Darnell Williams, Maurice Benard, you are all dear friends of mine and I admire you all very much. And I feel a little bit guilty here.  I think you were all robbed. I want to say this is amazing to start the evening. We usually end it and the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 is flashing in my face by now. So I don’t really know how to handle this except to say it’s a good way for GH to start. We have 23 nominations which is pretty amazing since last year we were almost canceled in favor of a surefire ratings bonanza, Celebrity Boob Jobs Gone Wrong, I think it was.”

I’d like to thank the hardworking cast, crew and production team of GH, and Jill Farren Phelps for over three decades of friendship and support. Bob Guza for throwing my character into the existential abyss and giving me the blackest story I could ever hope for. I would like to thank all my directors who always seem to come down on my side when the chips are down. And, a special shout-out to Craig McManus and Crystal Kraft for great humor under fire.  And finally, to the finest acting team and acting family a guy could have: Jonathan Jackson, Julie Berman, Nathan Parsons and the incomparable Jane Elliot.”

As for Chandler Massey, his acceptance was emotional, short, but sweet, as the young star was poised and a bit overwhelmed, but thanked his family, his colleagues, and the DAYS writing and producing team for giving him such great story to play.

What do you think of the Emmy wins of Geary and Massey? Let us know!

Chandler Massey… So well deserved! Thank you for a tour de force, fete accompli, STAR TURN… As Will. You and Grandma Marlena, the fabulous Deidre Hall… are a constant delight…. a rich twosome. Mother Sammi and Dad Will…. A collective surround of high calibur.

Wasn’t Chandler a lil nervous…. rightly so… “earning” his wings… so to speak…

it amazes me, when you see, press, and these awards shows… that give us a glimpse in to actors “lives”.. that pique our curiosity… They give us must see, must watch… TV.

How an actor, can deliver, performances, day after day. I salute Daytime…. and Serials.

Chandler so deserved this. I don’t watch GH anymore, but I always thought Tony Geary was excellent.

Days did so well, and continues to with this story. Chandler, Deidre, Freddie, and others, as their characters were clued in have made the story really powerful, and not just a “stunt”. Drake had the best line this week, when he found out, he told Will “You’re gay, you’re out, and I”M proud”. Loved that !

I thought having the younger actor nominees present to lead actor/actress was great, although some of the young actor noms didn’t seem comfortable with each other or wanting to be there. Strange.

So happy Chandler won. He has been fantastic on Days.

I was happy to see the show. Did not like the non-existent ‘tribute’ to previously cancelled soaps. Don’t understand that OLTL got little to no nominations and no emmys. Hope we have better news regarding daytime television by this time next year. Many thanks to HLN for airing the show!

Congrats to Chandler Massey, have loved him as Will from day one. He’s seems like a nice young man and we already know Chandler is a terrific actor. Best Wishes for his future.

Chandler has really come into his own, developing the pathos of his role. Im sure an invitation to the enigmatic Atlanta secret society, Par 3, is sure to be his next accomplishment.

That would be almost too much to ask for, but undoubtedly, the pinnacle of his career!

WATCH: ‘Saturday Night Live’s’ Cold Open: ‘Days of our Impeachment’

In a week that saw Days of our Lives make the mainstream news media, Saturday Night Live decided to spoof the current President Trump impeachment hearings and turn them into its own amped up soap opera, with special guest star, Jon Hamm.  The hearings are also currently upsetting many a soap fan its pre-emptions of their network daytime dramas.

In the SNL cold open; Mad Men alum Jon Hamm took on the role of  former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor.  Kate McKinnon reprised her portrayal of President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, while Heidi Gardner played a fainting soapy impeachment hearing attendee.

Meanwhile, SNL’s Alex Moffat played House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff and Mikey Day served as “cross-examiner” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan.  Cecily Strong took on the role of former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and Pete Davidson portrayed  attorney Michael Avenatti.  Then, Kenan Thompson stopped by as  suspended NFL player Myles Garrett and Melissa Villaseñor played “telenovela sensation,” Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As “AOC”, Melissa says: “This hearing is lacking one thing — a star!” . She then let her hair down and makes out with Taylor played by Hamm.

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.

Reeves shares the entire DAYS team was up for the challenge. Melissa also reveals during the dramatic scenes where Jennifer’s family was acting emotional circles around her, that she fell asleep during her scenes while she was playing Jennifer in a coma.
