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.

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

Chandler Massey Talks More On The DAYS WilSon Departure On The Freddie & Alyssa Show

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
