THE TALK's Aisha Tyler Receives Special Surprise from NATAS On Daytime Emmy Telecast Mishap!

May I have the wrong envelope, please! That may have been the mantra of The Talk’s Aisha Tyler who literally wowed those in attendance, and those at home, watching the broadcast of the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday June 16th on HLN!

As fans know, Aisha was handed the wrong envelope for the category her and her The Talk co-stars, Sheryl Underwood, Julie Chen, Sarah Gilbert, and Sharon Osbourne, were presenting during the live event.  Aisha saved the day noticing the envelope and the winner in it, was not for the category they were presenting for talk shows, because we later learned that when she opened it, the winner read, “The Bold and the Beautiful”!

NATAS sent a special floral arrangement and a letter to surprise Aisha on yesterday’s episode of the CBS hit talk show, which contents were read to Aisha by Sharon Osbourne.  It read: “Dear Aisha:  We love you and thank you for being so on top of your job as a presenter! And, for turning a potential disaster into one of the most press-worthy and fun moments of the evening! Dinner and cocktails are on us, the next time you are in New York!  We love you, from everyone at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.”

Was the outside of the envelope mislabeled?

That is nice they sent her flowers and that she was awake when she opened it!

I think NATAS owes Aisha a helluva lot more than just flowers and dinner. I think they should tap her to host the next one of these if they have any say in the matter. Very classy on their part, I approve. And just cuz I’m sure it’s not said NEARLY enough, HLN did the worst job in the history of the Daytime Emmys. EVER. It was a pimping of Robin Meade, and that’s all it was, and it was obvious, and it sucked. I care about the Daytime genre. I hate the lack of respect that was shown to the awards ceremony by HLN. I’m proud of Aisha.

It really was one of the worst Emmys in quite a while.

I thought this years Emmy telecast was an improvement over last years, even with the mistakes. It certainly was millions of times better than the 2 that were from Las Vegas!

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
