Yesterday, the 46th Annual NAACP Image Awards announced their nominations in all categories for work in television, film, music and literary works, and there was one big glaring omission, and that was there were no nominations in the annual Daytime Drama acting categories for actors and actresses.

According to the NAACP: “The event celebrates the outstanding achievements and performances of people of color in the arts (television, recording, literature, motion picture and writing & directing), as well as those individuals or groups who promote social justice through their creative endeavors.”  On-Air On-Soaps did reach out to the NAACP Image Award representatives to confirm that the daytime drama categories had been omitted this year.

However, soap fans can note that former The Young and the Restless star and current star of CBS’ Criminal Minds, Shemar Moore did land a nod in the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series category.  Shemar, who returned this year for a two -day appearance as Malcolm Winters on Y&R, will compete against: LL Cool J for NCIS: LA, Omar Epps for Resurrection, Omari Hardwick for Being Mary Jane, and Taye Diggs  for Murder in the First, for the trophy.

The awards will be handed out live on February 6th on a TV One special beginning at 9PMEST/8PMCST.  To view the complete list of nominations click here!

So, what do you think about the daytime drama performer categories being cut?  Who would you have liked to have seen nominated from your favorite soaps?  Is this a continued sign of the times the way the soaps are perceived or treated?  Comment below!

I consider it a slap in the face to daytime soaps…maybe the storylines arent the best at the moment but the actors are doing great with the material given and still shouldnt be overlooked!!!

VR should be given a second chance…i know of actors who were fired and later returned to their shows…Drucilla could still return…maybe she will…we never know!!!

VR will never return to Y&R because she is her own worst enemy. She keeps bad mouthing Sony and CBS about not enough people of color as writers and producers yadda yadda yadda. She needs to be quiet, and this is coming from an African American Female.

Victoria Rowell/Drucilla, won’t be back..
there still is not one black producer and she really does not like that lol
and— there is still routine behind-the-scenes politics, she really does not like that.
It doesn’t seem that VR and Y&R get along very well, and she is destined to stay at the bottom of the cliff..
((she really gave them hell, didn’t she LOL)

I wholeheartedly agree… unfortunately… VR has curtained

explosive : would reign : if she did

to a part of the reel… that needs ignite…. “the Winters’ …”

for decades plus : throw it out their… a core audience of daytime is people of color… to servitude… accept… tolerate… beget… that only a “select” few ARE featured…

not an equal representation of our America’

as the latino community has “spurned”
the African American is as diverse as always will
the Asian abundantly

heck… Y&R isn’t even my show
to have Abe and Theo + Maxine… in Salem… FEATURE Anne !

where are my fellow thespians

OK… that’s my soapbox… It’s all in perspective… I salute

Drucilla dynasty moneybags her purse with Devon’ two billion bills… and red carpets her appetites… what’s wrong with that

It depends why they were omitted? Were they were omitted because there are too few people of color working in daytime that the same few people were winning year after year? If that is the case why should they award daytime dramas when soaps have done such a poor job of promoting issues that relate to ethnicity, race and culture.

What? Tatyana Ali is not nominated for her role on Y&R?

But seriously, men and women of color are underrepresented on soaps and well… soaps are underrepresented on television. It does not surprise me the categories have been dropped.

I would like to have the day when soaps are strong again in daytime, earning the respect they deserve… and awards are given to people without regard to color. To be honest, I am not so high on entertainment industry awards anyway as they can be so political, are so prevalent, and not always genuine. Somebody is always overlooked.

But here’s to the great work soap talent is giving us. We are blessed to have/had Ali and so many others of color entertain and enlighten us with their work. THANK YOU TO THEM ALL!

Network Tv is dying.
It will soon be infomercials..
Daytime TV is the bottom rung of entertainment..
the only hope for the soaps is to go evening..
I’d bet if the soaps were nighttime not daytime, there would be millions of new viewers..
Cable is where the soaps belong in this the 21st century- daytime is crappy bottom of the food chain viewing, and the great soaps are thrown into that pile by being on daytime tv …

redaric and angell were such a nice addition to genoa city and deserve better than the way leslie supposdley got married out of nowhere and tyler got dumped by abby without fighting for her! its insulting to the audience they way they ve absent from the show!
i miss tyler and leslie and hope they return!! leslie belongs with neil especially now that hillarys taking advantage of his blindness! tyler belongs with abby they were so sweet together!

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
