OK—
This Is Us
” bested the other nominees in the category which included: The Americans, Better Call Saul, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Ozark.”

This is us, is great but not as good as the others and it’s the ‘Only’ show from Broadcast TV and that is why it won (network politics)

The Americans, Better Call Saul are cable and Ozark is Netflix and The Handmaid’s Tale is Hulu..

And- The Americans, Ozark and The Handmaid’s Tale, is much better than This Is Us –and The Americans should have gotten the award.

And- Chrissy Metz /Kate is Not in the This Is Us, above picture.

disagree with your networks politics comment as a matter of fact it has gotten harder for a network show to break through against the cable shows which have way more liberties if MASH were made today it would be difficult for a show as great as that to beat miss maisel Good for this is us!

as long as “This is Us” remains in the public eye/conscious … i’d really like to see a lot more of the cast nominated for individual performance (s) most notably Milo Ventimiglia, Chrissy Metz. Love Sterling K. Brown work. it’s such a treat to see ( Justin Hartley ) “Our” Golden boy, right ? one of the underlings who flew the coop. I fully embrace and totally agree that – thee whole cast – is so deserving.. what a treat to celebrate; fully acknowledged by their peers. THIS show just has to go the distance… for years to come.. just a warm heart tugging venture, no matter how tumultuous

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
