Well, 1st- not recruiting proper reporters / hosts who know about daytime TV but instead they had a casting call for millennial/hosts/reporters. And that Furlan host saying about Daniel Polo that she didn’t want to go to jail because he was under age and then getting giggly to know he was of age.. then that Harlow woman says to Lawrence Saint-Victor- “What’s it like to be a black man on a soap opera these days?” and then called him “a beautiful chocolate man,” and then to Ryan Paevey making doctor and policeman handcuff jokes, then Furlan said “We’re going to… Read more »

That red carpet pre-show was so tasteless, disrespectful, and unfunny. YES, those hosts made FOOLS of themselves. Fire the goof who hired them. What a DISSERVICE to the daytime genre.

Eager to hear the program, Michael. I did not do well on my predictions but see some fan favorites received trophies, several overdue for such recognition. Will comment now: Clear the deck with anyone behind that horrid mess of a red carpet program. It was like watching a train wreck. With so many competent entertainment reporters and well-spoken industry insiders, how could we have such a mess of a pre-show program. It only served to strengthen stereotypes that daytime is a lesser daypart and demeaned the talented storytellers and actors who work so hard to give us this special brand… Read more »

CONGRATULATIONS to the (soap) winners! Love y’all & very deserving! Last year I was disappointed in the poor production that HLN did of the Emmys. Also last year when GMA announced things, they were very disrespectful to our soaps. I can’t say it’s gotten any better. This year it seemed that whomever was in control of the red carpet didn’t care to have our long-time loyal soap reporters whom we all know and love. Instead stocked it with people we don’t know, nor know our (soap) people and shows, and were obviously disrespectful. And also now, regular entertainment TV shows… Read more »

I am just so thrilled that Eileen Davidson won as Best Lead Actress! It was a very well-deserved win! I’ve often wondered why Lauren Koslow has not been nominated. I absolutely love her as Kate Roberts. She is a stunning woman and is very talented.

I was EMBARRASSED watching the pre-show red carpet. Horrible, CLASSLESS “hostesses” . Absolutely wretched. I shut the volume off after hoping it would get better but it did not. Whoever hired those boobs should be FIRED. Disastrous. I was SHOCKED at the lack of professionalism and the distasteful, CLASSLESS display those women (certainly not ladies) put on. That red carpet was so DISRESPECTFUL to the wonderful daytime genre and actors. If they were going for funny they missed the mark by 10,000 miles. Fire the goof who put that s-storm together.

jimh…please don’t let the bad decision of some exec keep you from watching the Daytime Emmy s. Look it up on line and FAST FORWARD thru the terrible red carpet interviews and to the show. It is really nice watching our soap stars receive their awards etc. Honestly, for the first time I felt that the show’s production SUNK to the lower level that some people place it at. But, I highly recommend you watch it, as a fan, for the value of seeing our favorites win. NEEDS production improvements which won’t come with out the RESPECT they DESERVE!

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.

To take a stroll down memory lane of reunions past, Mary Beth Evans along with her longtime on-screen scene partner and dear friend, Stephen Nichols, watched back key scenes from the history of Stayla and offered up a second viewing experience as they commented on the clips.

Later, Mary Beth and Stephen are joined by their surprise guest and it is revealed to be Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati!

Mary Beth and Stephen then chat with Ron about what changes is he having to make to scripts in the reality we all live in now, the coronavirus pandemic, and how he is taking in to account upcoming safety protocols that will need to be adhered to when Days goes back into production.

As of now, from an article in Deadline last Friday the NBC daytime drama series is aiming for a September 1st restart.
