So who got the nod to host daytime’s biggest night? The answer is revealed!

As the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards returns to television this year, NATAS and the show producers needed to find a fierce host to handle the proceedings to make it a fun and memorable night.  Enter Tyra Banks!  The talk-show host, creator and producer has signed on with her signature style to host the ceremonies live on Pop on Sunday night, April 26th! In an official press release this morning from NATAS the academy announced that Banks is their gal for 2015!

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Tyra Banks, the fearless, ground-breaking, award-winning mogul, will bring her signature edge and one-of-a-kind style to host the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards airing live on Pop on Sunday April 26 at 8:00 PM, ET/5:00 PM, PT. The awards, voted on by members of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), will be presented in a live televised ceremony honoring more than 350 nominees in daytime television.

Tyra’s connection to daytime television is exceptional – she won two Daytime Emmy awards for “The Tyra Banks Show” and is scheduled to make her highly anticipated return to daytime television with “The FAB Life,” a lifestyle chat show launching in the fall of 2015.

“As a network that celebrates talent and personalities who ‘pop’ in fan culture, we couldn’t be more excited to have the multi-talented Tyra Banks as the host of the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards,” said Paul Adler, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and Development, Pop. “We know she will bring her fun, charismatic energy to the Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony, which promises to be an entertaining show honoring the most notable achievements in daytime television.”

“With Tyra Banks as our host, all the pieces are falling into place for what I believe will be a truly memorable night on the legendary Warner Bros. Studios lot,” said, Bob Mauro, President, NATAS. “The fans on the red carpet on New York Street will have not only the multi-versatile Tyra Banks and some of the most beautiful and talented daytime stars to cheer, they will also have one of television’s most beloved performers, Betty White, as she’s honored for her extraordinary career.  Somebody pinch me!”

“Are you ready to get your Smize on?!!” exclaimed Tyra. “I’m honored to be hosting the Daytime Emmy Awards and can’t wait to bring a fresh edge and lots of surprises to the show. It’s a big year! I’m shaking things up, starting with a new look and a brand-new daytime talk show launching in the fall. I’m pumped to be partnering with a fun, new network like Pop to celebrate daytime TV and the diehard fans that watch every day. Let’s do this!”

Televised from the legendary Warner Bros. Studios lot on Stage 16, the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards show on Pop will be executive produced by Michael Levitt of Michael Levitt Productions with Gary Tellalian and Mike Rothman also serving as executive producers.

The Daytime Emmy Awards recognize outstanding achievement in all fields of daytime television production and are presented to individuals and programs broadcast during the 2014 calendar year. The 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards is a presentation of NATAS in cooperation with the Television Academy.

This year’s Lifetime Achievement Award will go to the television icon Betty White. Ms. White will be joining an illustrious group of previous Lifetime Achievement honorees including, Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters, Merv Griffin, Dick Clark, Bob Barker, Phil Donahue, Regis Philbin, Alex Trebek and many others.

Shes better than that god awful classless Kathy Griffin but why the hell not have soap or former soap stars host?

Timmm ..
the soap awards are only 4 shows out of the many/all the daytime shows..
To have soap stars host might not be too cool but then again it might be very cool ! ..

I understand. maybe have a legendary soap star and Regis Philbin?

Because she has an upcoming show. She does well as host….they win over viewers to tune in. So transparent…a business move disguised as entertainment.

I agree. That does seem like the reason. I just hope she does well. I know she can.

If it’s a soaps- only event like the British Soap Awards, perhaps. But for me, an ideal hsot for the Daytime Emmys should be someone who obviously has ties to daytime programming, in any genre, be it talk shows, game shows, afternoon dramas series, children’s programming or news programs.

Not as good as Queen Kathy Griffin.

But a million times better than Robin Meade. I’m still having nightmares from that event.

Leo..KathyGriffin…REALLY…the only place I expect to see that beautiful disaster after last year is on a portrait in the opening sequence of NIGHT GALLERY being introduced by RodSerling (R.I.P.)…as the night’s HORROR STORY…4REAL…That picture of TyraBanks though says it all for what’s to come this year..but i’ll be all over it…sooo…Que Sera Sera…we’ll no doubt all be watching her in stunned silence like DorisDay trying to sing through the abduction of her son and impending danger of JimmyStewart…but i digress…OR DO I???

Instead of Tyra Banks the host should be a current soap star or a soap legend. Having Ms. Banks host is just a way for ABC/D to promote her OLTL replacement show. Hasn’t TPTB at ABC/D figured we won’t watch her show?

OLTL is off the air for some time now already. We all have to move on to bigger and better things than dwell on the past.

After all, we only have One Life to Live.

Are the Daytime Emmy Awards even still significant? The first hit happened many years ago and now we have a clown like Tyra Banks hosting it? Why? Why not a Soap Legend or someone relevant to daytime TV? I haven’t watched this slop of a show for years; I merely check out the clips later. I have more important things to do in my 2 hours. Kathy Griffin was bad enough.

They should pay Drew Carey and/or Wayne Brady a boat load of money to host. They need a COMEDIAN plus they are part of daytime.

Tyra Banks, while a fine individual, will not do the job.

Tara has ties to daytime as the host of her own talk show from back in the day, right? So, I’m not over concerned or feel as though they selected a celebrity from prime time who doesn’t even know one soap from the next or who’s on what talk show.

However, that being said, the press release has me a bit worried when she talks about shaking things up and putting a fresh edge on things. Haven’t we had enough “shake ups” and “fresh edge(s)” which resulted in disastrous Daytime Emmy shows in the past? I hope she’s talking about her upcoming show (which I could care less about).

And I love Betty White, but I love my soap stars more. Yes, I know there are only fours soaps on any more compared to the many other daytime shows, but none of those shows have the loyal fan base that the soaps do. Hook the audience by giving us soap stars as presenters and hosts and lots of shots of our favorites. Sorry for the talk shows, children’s shows and game shows, but soap fans are what make or break the ratings. Ever hear of a cooking show fan saying they’re going to watch to see if their chef wins? Didn’t think so.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?
