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.

General Hospital NEEDS to win as it is on life support.

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.

David Canary’s Daughter Raises Question If Repeated Head Traumas From His Football Past Contributed To AMC Star’s Condition Before His Death

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative brain disease that is now widely known to be the outcome of repeated head traumas, concussions and more for many NFL athletes, Pro Wrestlers, hockey players and more   It has caused mental illness, severe behavioral changes and more in younger athletes to even old-timers, many who suffer unaware what is happening to them. Some athletes who have committed suicide have been later to have been diagnosed with CTE when their brains were donated to research.

Kate Canary, the daughter of All My Children’s beloved and late, David Canary (Adam/Stuart Chandler), is a contributing writer to the New York Daily News, and she wrote a heartfelt, and thought-provoking article, on just what happened to this icon, who died in 2015 at the age of 77  with his formal diagnosis being Alzheimer’s disease.

However, David’s earlier football past as a high school and college football player could very well been the reason why he suffered so many years before, and as Kate related here in these excerpts: “But this diagnosis came after years of suffering with Dad’s cognitive decline, and arguably decades of signs. Without exposing the most excruciating details of a disease that could extinguish the most vibrant of men, I can confess that his case was anything but typical.  We lost him in fits and starts, over and over, for roughly seven years leading up to his final breath. Begrudgingly, we learned to lie to him — ‘entering his world,’ as my brother Chris so delicately deemed it — to skirt the contradictory truths that would trigger his outbursts, which left physical scars on objects, on himself, and on others. We knew many families who had faced Alzheimer’s, yet we were the only ones uttering the comparison ‘Jekyll and Hyde.  Those closest to Dad witnessed firsthand the erratic, delusional and at times explosive episodes that characterized his particular case, which we tried attributing to an overactive imagination in a broken brain. But as more information emerges about CTE and the nature of its symptoms — the violent mood swings, the lapses in judgment, the hours-long hallucinations, the paranoid delusions — we are left with more questions than answers, more regret than relief.”

Kate goes on to state the facts that David Canary suffered at least four major concussions as a lineman in his high school and college football playing days between the ages of 16 and 22, (she also relates that those are the ones he remembered).  She also notes the multi-Daytime Emmy winning star has experienced cognitive difficulties decades before his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, and that there was no genetic lineage that the family knew of that would you would often find with Alzheimer’s patients.  She also noted that David’s volatility was unusual for a patient suffering from this disease, which leads us all back to CTE.

In the end a loving daughter asks the questions, “Did football kill my father?”  Kate was on the verge of looking into a way to donate David’s brain to science, but sadly he passed away eight weeks later in November of 2015.

The upshot is that when mothers and fathers allow their kids to play football or other-related sports at an early age were concussions are a possibly or involved, think again, you could be changing the course of their lives forever.

So, what did you think of what Kate shared about David Canary’s mental health and condition?  It would seem CTE could have been the root cause of what befell this giant of a man in the daytime soap world. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
