According to Variety, “Underwood will emcee the show from Los Angeles, where a stage has been set up for the show, but the pre-taped broadcast will also include presenters and honorees from their own show studios and homes to accept their awards. Although many of the key daytime drama, game and talk show awards will be presented on the telecast, additional winners will be announced simultaneously on Twitter, via the @DaytimeEmmys handle.”

The Daytime Emmys are presented to programs broadcast between 2 a.m. and 6 p.m.  The show includes content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, and is judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

So, what do you think of Underwood being named the solo host of this year’s Emmy broadcast? Comment below.

I was looking forward to finally seeing the Daytime Emmys after them not being shown on network tv for the past few years. Now that I see who the host is, not so much.

They were on CBS last year, but I agree about the host.

I was going to watch the Daytime Emmys but now that I see who is hosting I will not waste MY time.

OMG, she can entertain herself, at least she won’t be able to hang all over every male that comes within her reach, as they won’t be there.

I just wish that they’d have an actor/actress from each of the daytime drama’s host the Emmys but that will never happen again.

Yes that would be great and I don’t know why they don’t do it. The hosts of the Talk have never impressed me.

Awful. I don’t know why CBS is touting her so much. I will record and fast forward through her. She’s not as fabulous as she thinks she is.

Because if they don’t they will be accused of racism. Why dont they let some of the fabulous African American actors from Y&R and B&B host. They would be fantastic.

SOB, I have to keep my TV on mute! I wouldnt watch it at all BUT I do want to see the tribute of Alex Trebek and Larry King. I hope Underwood has nothing to do with this part!

I’m not happy about this choice either. She claims to be a superfan of soaps but true fans don’t drool over and clearly embarrass soap actors when they visit the show. It’s just not how grownups behave. There were better candidates.

Hi, hope you are well. This thing with Sheryl is she is such a smart and educated woman, then why hasn’t she learned how to curb her enthusiasm?

Michaela

I know. I’m embarrassed for her when she does that. I can tell some of the male actors that come on the show are a bit put off by that. Is she that desperate for a greeting?

Bless her heart. She does show enthusiasm for the soaps, but sometimes she has been way too chatty and that has distracted from the clips and speeches from our soap stars. I hope she does better this time around.

She ain’t “all she’s cracked up to be”. Don’t amount to much. OOGLING over the past Males to sit at The Talk table was sickening. And the camera man gets so close you can see nosehairs….. We just aren’t impressed with that nor her gums.
GoT It???
NOT entertainer nor impressive enough to “run tbe show”.
Sheryl should host a childrens show…WITHOUT the presence of children! js

IF she’s hosting I’m NOT watching.
Won’t watch her on TT either.
You should realize this “cancel” works both ways. We can watch other National TV stations who are just true entertainment.

OMG!
If this is the best they can do for a host,I rather it not even be televised!
I can not think of a more obnoxious host for this show!
She does nothing but drool over all the men on the show and make sexual innuendos!
Why is that OK???
If it was a man doing it, they’d never host another show, but Sheryl gets away with it????
No thank you!

I was looking forward to the emmys but not now. Instead of having her host, why don’t they have some soap favs like they used to i.e. Peter Bergman, Melody Thomas Scott, Eric Braden, etc…. They would do a much better job. Come on CBS you can do better.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
