Take A Look Back: The First 25 Years of Lead Actor & Actress Winners At the Daytime Emmys!

Courtesy/NATAS

On-Air On-Soaps will be getting you ready all week long for the 39th Daytime Emmys to be handed out this Saturday night, June 23rd live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel and for the first time on cable network HLN!

For starters, we dug up one of our favorite tribute segments on the Daytime Emmy Telecasts. The year was 1999, and the Daytime Emmy turned 25 years old.   Barbara Walters anchored this special segment which featured clips of the past winning moments of the Lead Actor and Lead Actress categories, and at the end of it, the stage was filled with many of the past winners collectively for the first time in one group!  Of course, there were some that were not present for various reasons, but the sentiment was right!  Will we ever see something like this again on the Emmys?  Jury is out on that one.

From Larry Bryggman to Larry Haines to Justin Deas to Peter Bergman to Michael Zaslow to A Martinez to Tony Geary to Darnell Williams to Erika Slezak, Judith Light, Kim Zimmer, Helen Gallagher, Marcy Walker, Linda Dano, Jess Walton and Finola Hughes and Irene Dailey, it’s fun to see the montage of winning moments all put together.  And now, who will have their shining moments this year?

The Michael Zaslow win brought tears to me eyes. Such an amazing man and actor!! What a tragedy to lose him so young!!

Ditto. He was amazing.

Yes he was! GL wasn’t the same without him and Roger Thorpe! How he only won one Emmy is beyond me!

How cool – makes you realize just how much Daytime TV meant back then and all the talent in front of the camera…can’t say that for today’s version of “daytime TV”!!

No. Those were the days! On one of the dvds that I have (from when it was originally on VHS tapes), they actually had a 50 year anniversary of soaps show where the stars from all the soaps got together and talked about their shows and showed clips from over the years. Those were the days when soaps were respected and all over the place. Stars would be on talk shows like Oprah, Ricki Lake, etc.

Great but so many that should have won over the years Victoria Wydham who played Rachel for so many years, go and check her tribute to Douglas Watson that was when you got the lumps in the throat. And yes Michael Zaslow who died of ALS as my mother-in-law a horrible disease. I don’t know sometimes as you get older you say what changed it was so great back then. Oh well !!!

I didn’t realize the Wyndham never won until I watched the clip. Another glaring omisssion for a winner: Beverly McKinsey, who played Iris on Another World and then Alexandra Spalding on Guiding Light. For years, McKinsey turned in great performances in numerous storylines. McKinsey really deserved to have won for multiple years.

Also, this video was interesting. For Elizabeth Hubbard, it included one clip of her as Lucinda Walsh when she never won for that part (again, another mistake) but, instead, won for her role on The Doctors.

Why don’t the Daytime Emmy’s do this type of thing again? Bring back prior winners or veteran actors in some type of tribute? The soaps are in horrible shape. Frankly, I don’t know viable this award show will be next year – There won’t even be enough shows on the air to have five nominees? There is so little competition that the entire thing will be worthless.

Thanks for reminding me about BM she is the one actress that put Jill Farren Phelps in her place she showed up one day and said I quit when she was on GL she had an eight week clause in her contract that Phelps did not bother to read . One very smart talented lady! I love it when actors take charge of their lives instead of getting pushed around.

Those of us who had the opportunity to watch Michael Zaslow perform his craft in Springfield were truly blessed. Seriously.

Blake

Yes we were! I like watching my dvds with GL on it (that were recorded on vhs tapes that I transferred over). Most of them are on youtube. And thank God for youtube to watch scenes I don’t have or didn’t see!

I have to acknowledge… the win(s)… and the emmy goes to:

Larry Bryggman – John Dixon – ATWT
Elizabeth Hubbard – Lucinda Walsh – ATWT

A Martinez – Cruz Castillo – Santa Barbara
Marcy Walker – Eden Capwell – Santa Barbara

notwithstanding… DAYS Macdonald Carrey – Tom Horton
DAYS Susan Flannery – Laura Horton

DAYS actually won best soap in 1978.

I’ve watched this segment before onYouTube and it always gets me chiked up; such talent ans wonderful memories. Those os us who have watched the soaps for many many years have been blessed to have born witness to a myriad of gifted performers who, as BW said, sustained our interest for months ~ even decades ~ and touched our lives so profoundly.

I cannot believe how quickly things have changed on the daytime landscape. And how disappointing those developments are. Thanks for sharing this tribute clip. Daytime shines bright today, only the scope is not as wide. A shame really.

My late father lamented the loss of radio programs he enjoyed as a boy. I miss my daytime dramas in the same way. How wonderful that there were once as many as 18 on the air. New plays and dramas every day, once upon a time… live! The talent and work to do that was remarkable. And should be applauded to this day and beyond!

Made me feel good and sad all at the same time!

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.
