    Congratulations to all who were nominated and won. Shout out to Miss Beehive And RC Cates- didn’t win, but loved the song and music and Miss Beehive’s lovely voice on YR.
    I can see how Bold won best costumes-despite most scenes taking place on a mattress.
    I am pretty sure the costumers are behind all the great frocks and designs the Forresters-and Spectras are credited with.
    The ceremony and red carpet lasted hours. Kudos to all press covering the event for their tenacity and hope cocktails were available.
    Looking forward to tomorrow night’s results and good luck to all. Thanks for the coverage, Michael.

        HAHAHAHA! No kidding! I can’t stand “Parking Lot Pete,” and won’t watch any episode that he is in-what a joke! His girlfriend continues to pimp him out-on the cooking channel, and at the Creative Art Emmy Awards. So ridiculous! Funny, I swear he wore the same blue suit at the Creative Art Emmy Awards that they always put him in on GH!

      K/kay…where B&B is concerned, it’s getting BEYOND OLD AND STALE watching that Bill/Brooke/Ridge and that Hope/Liam/Steffy silliness!!!!! At this point, I don’t think that Bradley Bell has a CLUE as to how to run B&B…AT ALL!!!!! Moron.

      Have a good one, K/kay.

    CONGRATS to B&B winning for best Outstanding Music Composition which I totally agree with for Jack Allocco and David Kurtz compose the music and they use to be with Y&R which I so wish they were back at Y&R, to me they are the tops in their craft…

      Rome whined last year, about not being nominated or winning. Can’t believe he won this year! What a total joke!

    There was problems with my online feed. Buffering and I have good internet speed. I missed best supporting actress. , and part of the GH 55th clips. Don’t know what happened. I wish it were on Tv. As far as the awards themselves, I was disappointed GH did so poorly. I thought the Joely Fischer sang beautifully, but the song should be a background to the In Memoriam. Not her fault the song should be quiet and be secondary to the video. I didn’t feel the song was the proper song for the mood, but she sang well. I felt the female co-host’s banter was improper in these days . Just my opinion. If she were a man and Mario was a woman, everyone would agree.

    Not a Days fan but happy for their fans. Greg Vaughn’s win was awesome! I wish Marla would have won but Cam is so good, I am cool with her win. As far as GH’s big casting win, I agree, even though Frank screws over GH’s legendary characters, he and Mark do find good actors such as Greg Evigan and Max Gail and these two did and are making an an amazing impact as Jim and Mike.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.
