Daytime 42nd Creative Arts Emmy Awards

The 42nd Annual Daytime Emmys are in the record books, and there were certainly some memorable moments when the envelopes were ripped open and the winners revealed! In the Outstanding Daytime Drama Series category, there was a rarity … a tie! Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless each took home the gold when their names were called by the soap icons of General Hospital, Anthony Geary (Luke) and Genie Francis (Laura), who were reunited on-stage to present the final award of the night. However, it was CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful … with wins for Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Outstanding Directing Team in a Drama Series, combined with their eight wins at the Daytime Creative Arts Emmys two nights prior … that took home the most gold of any soap opera in the 42nd annual kudofest campaign! And speaking of the Daytime Creative Arts Emmys, there was a tie during those ceremonies, too … only this time it was a three-way tie! GH’s Donna Mills, B&B’s Fred Willard, and Y&R’s Ray Wise shared the award when their names were called in the first ever presentation of the Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series category.

Overall, the acting categories were we led by ABC’s General Hospital with four major victories, including the aforementioned Mills. Anthony Geary broke his own record taking home his eighth Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his incredible performance in the ‘Luke/Fluke’ storyline throughout 2014. Maura West, a previous two-time Lead Actress Daytime Emmy winner for her work on ATWT, took home her first Lead Actress prize for her role as tough mob gal, Ava Jerome. Chad Duell, who plays Michael Corinthos, entered the field for the first time in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, and won it!

Days of our Lives’ Freddie Smith, after losing in the Younger Actor in a Drama Series previously, finally got his due and won gold for his performance as Sonny Kiriakis. It was bittersweet for Smith, who made the decision to leave the long-running NBC soap opera a month ago, and has since completed his time in Salem. Smith’s speech was a highlight of the night when he thanked the LGBT community for their support of his performance of the first openly gay character on DAYS in the series’ 50-year history. Amelia Heinle made it a two-peat winning the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role as the grieving Victoria Newman on The Young and the Restless. Heinle’s reels from her Emmy-winning performances have been centered on the death of little Delia, and the ramifications of her sudden death, and remembering her a year later on the anniversary of that horrific night. Amelia’s castmate also made it two in a row, when Hunter King picked up her second straight Daytime Emmy for her role as Summer Newman.

On-Air On-Soaps was backstage at the One-On-One Winners Walk, where we were able to interview and spend some time with the night’s big winners! From their initial reactions to their victory, to sharing some very emotional and heartfelt moments with us, it was exciting times for these newly crowned Emmy champs in 2015!

Days Of Our Lives

James Reynolds Honored with On Set Celebration to Mark his 40th Anniversary on DAYS (PHOTOS)

Last Thursday, on the 40th anniversary of Days of our Lives‘ James Reynolds debut as Abe Carver, the long-running NBC soap took some time out from production to mark the milestone with an on set celebration attended by several cast members, creatives, and crew.

Taking part in the celebration wereL DAYS EP Ken Corday, Bill Hayes (Doug), Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Stephen Nichols (Steve), Sal Stowers (Lani), Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) , Josh Taylor (Roman), Thaao Penghlis (Tony), Marci Miller (Abigail), Lindsay Arnold (Allie), Greg Rikaart (Leo), Victoria Konefal (Ciara), and Robert Wilson (Ben).

 

With speeches and love all around, James was saluted by the show for his enduring performance as Abe.  Last Monday, a special episode was crafted in his honor, which saw Abe go to the light and being visited by his beloved late wife, Lexie in a series of scenes and flashbacks.  It was another touching performance by Reynolds, in which we also applaud him with Michael Fairman TV’s Power Performance of the Week honors (more on that in an upcoming post).

During his daytime career, Jim took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2018 for his portrayal, and remains the longest-running black actor in a continuing role on television.

Check out some of the moments from Jim’s celebration below in our photo gallery.

Then, let us know what you thought of James’ performance last week, and share your well-wishes to him for 40 years on DAYS and a job well-done, via the comment section.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: What Did You Think of Victoria and Ashland’s Wedding? (PHOTOS)

Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless brought with it the vows and the “I do’s” of Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) to Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi), and the couple are now officially married.  However, pangs of guilt, emotion, and ‘how to solve a problem like Ashland’ also filled the ceremony.

Leslie Brooks (Janice Lynde) played the piano, Tess (Cait Fairbanks) sang a song, and Victoria came down the aisle with her father, Victor (Eric Braden).  It was actually the moments between Eric Braeden and Amelia Heinle that were the emotional high points as you could see the love between the characters, and the actors.

With the nuptials in Tuscany, which brought Hunter King and Michael Mealor’s characters of Summer and Kyle back into the mix, along with Janice Lynde, Victoria was said to never look more beautiful and she chose, after all of Sally’s (Courtney Hope) machinations, to actually wear the dress Sally designed, which was a smash!

The drama came from what was Gaines (Jamison Jones) going to do and what ammo did he have to bust up the nuptials in his revenge against Ashland.  Nick (Joshua Morrow) comes upon him in a upstairs terrace room, and instead of helping him stop the wedding, he actually locks him in the room.

Nick then has a decision to make …. does he stop the wedding, which he knows his sister would never forgiven him for (he was already uninvited to the nuptials), or bust open the situation?  It is none other than Adam (Mark Grossman) that tells Nick to look at Victoria before he makes his move saying, “She’s happy. Do you really want to be the guy who wipes that look off her face on what should be the best day of her life?” Just then, Ashland and Victoria become husband and wife, They kiss as everyone in attendance applauds.

Throughout the wedding, another highlight was every time the camera would pan to Billy.  His face said it all as it was exceedingly and increasingly hard for him to watch Victoria marry another man, let alone Ashland. Jason Thompson played those moments to perfection. After the wedding, Billy goes up to the newlyweds and wishes them well.  During the ceremony, he received a text from Gaines, but did not read it.  When he later opens it, there is a video attachment.

Meanwhile, back in the upstairs room, Gaines is confronted by Nick, Adam, and Victor, who Adam alerted to the situation; instead of calling security, which Nick asked him to do.  A stern Victor tells Gaines that he’s still a threat to Victoria and her company, and he won’t allow that to happen.

When we go back to Billy, who is now with Lily (Christel Khalil), he looks shocked by what he just saw in the video message from Gaines.  He shows it to Lily saying: “He (Gaines) just sent us a video of himself detailing all of Ashland’s crimes including the evidence.” Lily knows this is huge news! Billy tells her that if they don’t publish within the hour, Gaines is going to send it around to other press outlets.  When Lily asks, “What should we do?”  The camera pans to Billy looking at Victoria and Ashland, where Victoria is smooching with her new hubby.  Billy looks very concerned and very torn. Will he be the person to break the backstory of Ashland and his crimes including the forged will and his conniving for Camilla Rhodes’ fortune… or will he not do anything with the intel to save his enduring relationship with Victoria?  We fade to black.  Tune-in Monday.

So, what did you think of the wedding of Ashland & Victoria? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out some of the moments and looks from the wedding in front of the camera and behind the scenes in our photo gallery below.
