Ok this one breaks my heart because One life to live should be here, that of course would be my first choice but it’s not, I would like to pick all my children because I miss it terribly and this is the last year but I really don’t think the stories were that great, last year and we got cheated out of a ending, so I am picking general hospital to win, aside from the mob there were a few interesting stories going on in Port Charles. I have to say All my children and General hospital, But when I voted it was General hospital.

Understand and respect your feelings, but it least it is still on the air. It did not get skewered like AMC.

Not Days. Those idiots underused and then tossed their best actor and character in Matt Ashford/Jack. They also had a wonderful idea for rebooting the show, and then completely failed on the execution, when it shouldn’t have been that hard to do so much better with it. And now they’ve decided to head right back to what stunk before the reboot.

I wish the British soaps were on the ballot.

THAT would be interesting. It would be even MORE interesting if we could watch British soaps instead of American talk and reality.

ONE LIFE TO LIVE. It’s nothing but insulting that this show was not included in the category. It just proves these awards are a sham. Long live ONE LIFE TO LIVE.

Since you asked, I WANT OLTL, but write-ins aren’t possible, or are they?

General Hospital so deserves it. I hope they win this year. Judging from the episodes so far in this “new season”, it doesn’t look good for next year.

General Hospital. The episodes they submitted, Jake’s death and Luke’s intervention, were fantastic shows that were well acted, well written, and well produced. They should win.

All My Children. I have watched that extraordinary show for the full 41 years and I am grateful for every moment it has been on the air. However, I know that the decision tonight is based only on two episodes submitted. My understanding is that they were the last two of the show’s tenure. They were excellent..

Yes, Gh has sent some good episodes too. But they will have another year.

My heart and my vote goes to AMC!!!!!

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS has my vote! They didn’t get to be a nominee on accident, folks. Consistently the number one rated daytime television show for a record breaking amount of years. Consistently has the best production values, best writing, best ensemble cast, best music, lighting makeup and hair. It’s set the standard for every other show (that’s left). It’s already won in my book!

Oh god, it’s gonna be GH!
Would love to see AMC win to end their final emmy year!!

OLTL should win but I went with Y&R. GH was terrible before the new regime took over.

All My Children Alum Christopher Lawford Dead At 63

Sad news to report this Wednesday.  Christopher Lawford, best known to soap fans as Charlie Brent on All My Children from 1992-95, as well in the role of Senator Jordan on General Hospital in 2004, passed away at age 63.

Lawford who is the son of the actor Peter Lawford, and Patricia Kennedy, and whose uncles were Ted, Robert and President John F. Kennedy apparently died at a Yoga Studio on Tuesday night during a health emergency according to a report from TMZ.

As of now, it is being reported that Christopher’s death appears to be from “natural causes.” The coroner is performing an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.

Christopher had battled addiction in his life back in the 70’s and 80’s.  The actor was also a New York Times best selling author with his book, ‘Symptoms of Withdrawal.’

Being the nephew of John F. Kennedy, Lawford also spent time in the political arena with staff positions with The Democratic National Committee, and campaigns whether it be at the national, state, or local level

Lawford’s cousin Kerry Kennedy announced his death on social media.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica Kane), Lawford’s co-star on All My Children, shared her thoughts on Instagram at his passing: “Such very sad news that wonderful Chris Lawford has passed away. Chris was so great to work with—always prepared and always with a smile and an ease about him. He was warm and charming whether on set at AMC—or working hard for his charity. My deepest sympathy to his family. RIP, Chris”

One Life to Live & All My Children Reunion Event Photo Gallery

Over the weekend, actors who appeared on two beloved legacy soap operas: All My Children and One Life to Live took part in a reunion event held over GH Fan Club Weekend.  And while the fans in attendance were excited to see some of their favorites, it was the former cast members themselves getting to see their former co-stars for the first time in years which made the event all the more touching.

Then, in big surprise to the attendees, none other than former One Life to Live star, Nathan Fillion showed up to give hugs to his former castmates including: Erin Torpey (Ex-Jessica), and James (Ex-Max) and Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair), among others.  Fillion, who has gone on to primetime success with his show Castle, and his upcoming new series on ABC, The Rookie, has never forgotten his beginnings in show business as Joe Buchanan!  Who can forget his on-screen affair with Robin Strasser’s Dorian, which sent Viki (Erika Slezak) into orbit!

Kassie DePaiva (now Eve on DAYS) told Michael Fairman TV on Fillion’s appearance that she had reached out to him to let him know about the event: “I knew the fans would love it.  He is very proud of his roots.”

When asked about seeing the original Blair, Mia Korf, at the same event whom she had never met, Kassie said, “I went, ‘There’s the real Blair,” but it was really nice meeting her.  You know with One Life to Live actors, even if you didn’t work with somebody there is such a camaraderie, which makes this show so special.”

All My Children fans were thrilled to see appearances by Rebecca Budig (Ex-Greenlee), Vincent Irizarry (Ex-David), Jordi Vilasuso, who will soon be seen in his new role on Y&R, and played Dr, Griffin Castillo in Pine Valley, and many more.

Check out our photo gallery of some of the past cast from both AMC and OLTL who showed up to say “hello again” to each other and the fans below.  Then, let us know if it makes you miss Pine Valley and Llanview all the more in the comment section, and which photo you liked the most!
