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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
