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 Ben & Ciara Wed: What Did You Think of the Nuptials & Its Explosive Aftermath? (PHOTOS)

On Wednesday and Thursday, Days of our Lives delivered the Cin wedding as Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal) finally tied-the-knots, and of course, like a juicy, soapy nuptial in Salem, it came with: bumps in the road, a gorgeous ceremony featuring heartfelt vows and … an explosion that rocked the church and detoured the young couple’s happiness.

DAYS rolled out the red carpet for this one complete with many extras, a huge church gathering, quite the wedding dress for Victoria Konefal to wear, and emotional performances by the on-screen bride and groom.

Shortly after Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) pronounced the two, husband and wife, and as Ben is waiting for his bride to begin their lives as newlyweds together, … as she approaches him in the vestibule of the church, a bomb goes off, and Ben is caught in the explosion.

Watch some of the images from the ‘Photo Album’ of Ben and Ciara’s wedding below.

Then, let us know via the comment section below, what you thought of the Cin nuptials? Did you love them? Are you upset about the explosion? And the big question.. who is responsible for planting a bomb in the church? Share your thoughts and theories.

DAYS Elani Wedding (Photos): What Did You Think Of The Nuptials?

This week on Days of our Lives saw the first African-American couple to be married on-screen in the 54-year history of Days of our Lives.  Now while Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) tried before in a previous ceremony, this one did the job … they are now officially husband and wife!

The ceremony was attended by Lani’s dad, Abe Reynolds (James Reynolds), her mother Tamara Price (Marily McCoo), Billy Davis Jr.  as a former FBI mentor to Eli, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) – it was her restaurant after all and she is Eli’s grandmother.  Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) presided over the ceremony.

There were some unwelcome guests at the ceremony as well; leading the bride to question, are we doomed?  Why does this keep happening to us everytime we tried to get hitch!

However, fate was on Lani and Eli’s side this day, as even Gabi (Camila Banus) with her antics, and a shocking arrival from Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel), couldn’t rain on this day.  Vivian even tried to shoot the bride, but thanks to Rafe (Galen Gering) saving the day and armed with news that her son Stefan (Brandon Barash) could be alive; he informs Viv firmly that she would be killing someone for the wrong reason, even though Vivian is in disbelief that her son is alive.  Next, she is whisked out of the ceremony.

Lani still feeling rattled by all the wedding interruptus gets a sign she should marry the man she loves; when her mother, who needed to go lie down earlier, as she was feeling faint, was able to show back up just in time to restart the wedding.

Broom

During the ceremony, Eli mentions the loss of little David Abraham and the struggles they went through, but how in the end it brought then closer together.  After the rings are exchanged and they are pronounced man and wife, the newlyweds “jump the broom” a wonderful tradition and a symbol of African-American heritage, where the sweeping of the broom signifies sweeping away all the bad energy.  After they sweep the broom, Elani jumps over it.

In a behind-the-scenes of the wedding segment released this week on the DOOL app, Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey talk about the inclusion of the ‘jump the broom’ moment in the episode, and how they suggested the idea to DAYS Co-EP Albert Alaar, and how  it was written into the episode.

So, what did you think of Lani and Eli’s wedding? Did you enjoy it? Let us know via the comment section below, but first check out this wedding photo gallery of the big day!
