As we get ready for tomorrow’s 39th Annual Daytime Emmys, HLNTV.com asked On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman to weigh-on as a special guest correspondent on the Top Five Classic Daytime Emmy Moments from previous telecasts!

Although there were certainly so many to choose from,  we could only chose five! Check out our list and the winning moments in the videos attached to the countdown!

Here is an excerpt from Fairman’s picks!  “The most memorable moment happened on May 21, 1999 when Susan Lucci, who played Erica Kane on All My Children, finally won the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series award after losing in this category 18 consecutive times!  When presenter Shemar Moore uttered the now famous line, “The streak is over!” everyone realized Susan had won the gold. I was actually inside the Felt Forum (inside Madison Square Garden) in New York City, where the ceremonies were being held when the moment happened, and it was electrifying! It was the longest standing ovation I’ve ever seen at any awards show. The applause, the cheering, and the screaming felt like the roof came off the building. And then… who could forget the cutaways of Rosie O’Donnell, Oprah Winfrey, and so many daytime stars in tears for La Lucci! THEE ultimate moment.”

So what do you think were some of the most memorable winning moments in Daytime Emmy history? Check out the piece on HLNTV.com and then weigh-in! And don’t forget to tune in live tomorrow at 8pMEST/5PMPST for the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel only on HLN!

The streak is over, That was the best ever I don’t think any other win can top that at least for us Susan Lucci fans, After all those nominations it was so good to see Susan win her first emmy. I remember it well I couldn’t believe that she finally won, I had the chills all over and cried like a baby I didn’t want her win to end. It was if not the best emmy ever, And if Ericka Slezak wins her 7th emmy tomorrow night I will be thrilled. I also read somewhere to day I think it was google news for One life to live they are saying that One life to live can be in the emmys next year because of the time that it ended so maybe we have another chance at winning best drama and writing next year.

Well Susan lucci, or should I call you Ericka Kane? How many times in the past 18 years I wanted to see you win then finally out of no where one year you did, It was the best ever, Well not any more, What that woman did to Ericka Slezak makes me sick to my stomach, I forgave you when you said the fans weren’t there anymore but hogging that microphone and not letting me hear from Ericka Slezak was so wrong you were not all my children girl you were a part of all my children there were several other actors far superior then you on that soap, if you were there to carry it alone you never would have made it for 40 years. I am very upset over Susan Luccis and Cameron mathsons appearance at the emmys, I could care less if I ever see those two ever again, because I will always think of that emmy show where they both showed us the fans who they truly are, very self absorbed, self centered, with God like egos.The true star is ERICKA SLEZAK, And I am not alone in my thinking.

Barbara t, what happened on Emmy night? I missed the Emmy’s, been going through allot, and just thought to look up who won on here, and ran across this page, your 1st post and THEN your reply to your post Lol. What did Susan Lucci do now, lol ? I knew it was your writing when you wrote, well Susan Lucci or should I call you Erica Kane, because you have been reading my post about this idenity confusion us fans have regarding her persona. Ok, what did Susan and Cameron do? Please advise. What they do or didn’t do to Erika Slezak?

Susan Lucci winning was definitely the best moment in Daytime Emmy history. Even if you weren’t a fan of AMC, you had to appreciate the historic moment.

Another great moment that year was when Anthony Geary won for Lead Actor, which was long overdue after his previous win 17 years earlier, and he mistakenly said “I love you Bob Woods” in his acceptance speech, when he meant to say Bob Guza.

Stuart Damon winning for Best Supporting Actor in 1998 after 7 nominations was also a wonderful moment. A long overdue honor for him.

I also loved the tribute they did for Dick Clark a few years ago, which was so moving it brought Dick to tears.

So many classic moments over the years. Hopefully we see a few more tomorrow night!

You know, I loved watching the video of LaLucci’s Emmy win once again. I got a little choked up, and you know why? Because even though I never watched AMC, I know that all of the daytime actors and actresses work harder than any other acting medium in the world. They memorize and shoot more pages than any movie star. They are challenged by new material each day and they don’t have the opportunity to work out all the little kinks and reshoot from several different angles until the emotions and shot is just right. No, our daytime stars place it all out there with raw talent. They are superstars to me; better than any other acting medium. So when someone who’s been at it for as long as Susan Lucci was and she wins, that’s a victory for all of us long-time soap fans who recognize the quality of these actors and actresses we’ve grown to love. Via La Daytime!!!

Rodd, welll written my friend. And so true. What that are conditioned to memorize on a daily basis, they should get the salaries of these fake movie star’s, who get the chance to reshoot. Well written.

Kim Zimmer winning was the best! I loved that crazy look she had and the throwing her shoes. She showed what a spitfire she and Reva are to the world. And she got so much press for her look, it made magazines like Time.

I also loved Michael Zaslow’s win, Cynthia Watros’ win, and Justin Deas’ first win on GL.

I don’t think Susan Lucci or Cameron Mathison stole the mic at all on the tribute to OLTL so chill out folks. I think the tributes did suck though. They were poorly conceived and for whatever reason did not show clips – probably because ABC wouldn’t release them I suppose. THe writing sucked the whole event (Daytime Emmy’s) were rather weak – though understandable considering the lack of time. It was on a cable network and that has limited viewers and probably not one of the high profile cable networks either like the Food Network or Lifetime or whatever.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
