I like that half of the awards are 8 of the 9 daytime drama categories. I am hoping for a telecast that gets on with the actual awards and doesn’t have the unnecessary filler that grinds it all to a halt. I do hope they show clips from all the performer nominees. I am actually quite pleased with this announcement. Now all I need personally is for the blue ribbon panelists to be sensible and give the actual awards to deserving recipients!!!! (;

I miss the old days when the Daytime Awards were mostly Soap awards and did not include everything else that is on during the day.

I would also like to add, That I am not at all enjoying this new format. I’m really missing all our friends and do not understand the change.

If they’re having a separate ceremony for ALL digital drama awards, why is Outstanding Digital Drama Series being broadcast tonight? I’d much rather see them broadcast Outstanding Guest Performer as those nominees deserve to have their category with the rest of the Acting Awards. I’m not knocking the Digital Drama’s …. I just don’t understand why they’re only presenting one of those awards. Ya feel me? 🙂
