Tonight’s new categories are: Beloved Salem Favorite Female, Favorite Vixen, and Favorite Young Male Star. About these nominations:  Beloved Salem Favorite selections are based on actresses who have been considered part of the DAYS family of characters for many years and decades. And while some may have been off the series for a few years, and returned in recurring or guest-starring capacities, they have a long and enduring association with the show. These are for actresses that have made appearances or have been on the series during the last year through to this anniversary year, not stars who no longer appear on the show. Favorite Vixen selections is for the real femme fatale of Salem. These nominees alter-egos have all cheated on their spouses, beau’s, or whoever, to get what they want at one time or another.  Favorite Young Male Star selections represent the young core of male actors who are the next generation of Salem.  Remember, if you don’t agree with our nominees and suggestions in the categories, you have the option of entering “Other”.  And, if you haven’t vote in the other categories make sure to vote for Favorite Flawed Heroine and Favorite duo by clicking here.

Wow. Beloved female who has been on the soap for a long time? Hello? How on earth could you think that Mary Beth Evans, Judy Evans, or Alison Sweeney is more beloved than Deidre Hall, Susan Seaforth Hayes, or Frances Reid?? What are you smoking? I, like many people I’m sure, know what Other stands for, and why it is winning currently with 22% of the votes. Next time you do a poll about a beloved character, do your f***in homework.

Why isn’t Sami Brady in the favourite vixen poll? I find it a bit of a joke that this is supposed to be celebrating 45 years, but they are only looking at the current storylines. Sami Brady was the most twisted little vixen in Salem for oh 15 years!! So my vote goes to Sami Brady, in both cateogories because she is more grey than a heroine!!

Kiren

She’d definitely have my vote in that poll! But my default, my vote goes to Kate Dimera with Nicole Walker at a close third.

And also what the hell?? Renee Jones (Lexi)…listed on the “Vixen” poll…but there is no Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) and no Louise S. (Vivian) at all listed there??? What is this??? Is this some kind of joke?? Because when Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) is not ACTUALLY listed on the poll for “Favorite Vixen”; when you have to “write her in”…we are seriously being “puNk’ed!!” What is this?? Like for real…are you serious??? I can not believe that Alison Sweeney, “Sami VIXEN-VILLAINESS Brady,” America’s Favorite Soap Villain is not listed anywhere on that “Vixen” poll. Sami Brady fans?? Are you out there…this is such crap! UGH!!! We are totally being “puNk’ed!!” Because when Sami Brady is not on the vixen polls, as she is a vixen and one of the top and most legendary ones in soaps period, it is a actual disgrace, a joke, and the poll just can’t be taken seriously at all.

Are you serious?? Shelley Hennig (Stephanie)…over Alison Sweeney (Sami) for “Vixen”?? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDIN’ ME RIGHT??? That is the BIGGEST JOKE & DISASTER EVER!!!! Who do you think did ALL of what Stephanie and those other ladies on the list have done; who do you think wrote the book for what all of those ladies have done; who do you think laid it down and paved the way to what Stephanie has done as well as those other listed; who is STILL doing terrible things, lying, scheming, manipulating….SAMI BRADY has did it ALL and is STILL doing it! She wrote the book and blue prints to villainess and vixen. I just can not believe and can not imagine a “Vixen Poll” without her ACTUALLY listed on it! When Alison Sweeney/Sami Brady is not listed on a “Vixen” poll, it most definitely can not be taken seriously AT ALL!!!!

Jodie

I totally agree.
Michael Sami Brady is the ultimate vixen of Days, come on you know it, you know Days history Michael !
Even now when they try to whitewash her past she still just shot a man in the head, even more the father of two of her children and since then she lies about it which leads to the death of her current sister’s boyfriend..so in my book (and actually everyone’s book lol) this is not a heroine’s behaviour that..but more a vixen or anti-heroine maybe even a villainess bahaviour..

Beloved Salem Female: Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady)

FAVORITE VIXEN: ALISON SWEENEY (SAMI BRADY)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Favorite Young Male Star: Aaron & Griffin (Johnny DiMera)

Oh I like that choice for favourite young male star!! Hmm I might choose this one too.lol

To your reply, that is one of the biggest mistakes they are making with this show they are not respecting history and they are continuing to drastically change characters to suit whatever storyline they find themselves in. I personally, like Sami as the Anti-Brady because she had heart and strived to be good but oh she just couldn’t help all those schemes just to satistfy her own insecurities and selfishness. I loved her more like this because she had passion and spunk that made her stand out from the rest of the Brady clan. Writers try to make her the herione now but it just makes her sadly one of the sanctimonous selfrightous Bradys, that she so detested years ago. When she is the anti-brady it means she can still make horrible mistakes and not have to live up to this high and mighty status. That’s one of the things I love so much about Ej and Sami despite being bad they strive to do good and it is that heart and passion that makes them rootable as inviduals and as a supercouple. They love hard, and fight for what their heart desires. To me that is what makes them special and shine from the rest. This is what the writers need to capture in their lovestory is that unique passion and temperment they have with a bit of a Mr and Mrs Smith kind of relationship, modern exciting and full of adventure and romance. They don’t have to play nice, being powerful and pasionate is where this story needs to be.

Hi Michael,
You mentioned that addition names can be added via the “other” catagory. I have tried to vote and while it says the vote was accepted, the “other” catagory remains listed at 0. Are these votes counted behind the scenes – so to speak?

Oops! I’m one of those that didn’t read the instructions, so I wrote in Deidre Hall. If I had a do-over, I’d probably go with Mary Beth Evans. Carly Manning is currently my favorite heroine on the show, but based on longevity I’d give my vote to Kayla.

Missy Reeves as Jennifer Rose Horton Deveraux! I’m so excited to have Missy back with her DAYS family, and I’m looking forward to seeing Jennifer on our Salem screens again. (And hoping for more Deveraux returns, as well!)

DAYS Susan Seaforth Hayes Talks On Her Daytime Emmy Nomination For Julie and Doug’s Emotional Storyline

When you think Days of our Lives, what would it be without the legendary Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and her real-life and on-screen husband, Bill Hayes (Doug Williams)?

This past Emmy season, the beloved duo got a chance to shine, when they were put through a ‘heartbreaking’ predicament – Julie’s heart gives out, she is in need of a transplant, and things take a turn for the worse.

What would life be like for Doug without his Julie? How would she say goodbye to him? Fans clearly felt the sentiments overflowing from this real-life duo capturing the essence of their characters in such a raw and realistic way. So much so, that Susan landed a Daytime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category for her work.

Already a Lifetime Achievement Award recipient along with her husband, Bill back in 2018, will Susan finally get an award for her acting for her decades of beautiful work on the long-running NBC soap opera? Fans will need to tune-in to CBS on Friday, June 26th to find out with the virtual presentation of the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.  But for now, here is our conversation with Susan.

Congratulations on your Supporting Actress nomination.  You have been racking up a lot of these recently, having been nominated in the same category two years ago, and also receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award along with your husband, Bill Hayes at the 45th annual Daytime Emmys in 2018.

SUSAN:  It’s really nice to be nominated, because I’ve had a few gap years.  I’ve had, what? 25 gap years between the recent nominations.

What scenes did you ultimately chose that landed you the nomination?

SUSAN:  I submitted when Julie dies.  I submitted the farewell montage scenes with Bill Hayes, and they were very moving to us… and we’ll see.  I did not submit anything snappy, or bitchy, or hysterical.  I’ve lost against hysterical every time.  Comedy has never worked.  So, I am going to try the heart and soul of soup opera: not bitchiness, but loss.

Photo: JPI

Can I ask how you got through those scenes with Bill, because it was so touching?  I don’t know how you did it.

SUSAN:  It was very difficult.  I mean, these are the things that make us so connected to the characters and the show.  This is a place where we can show the public what love means to us, which is everything.

They were beautiful scenes.  Do you remember when you did them, if you felt good about them at the time?

SUSAN:  No… no.  I didn’t know.  Everyone on the set seemed happy.  We are blessed to have feedback from out producers now, and they didn’t say, “I think you can do it better,” and, “Another take,” not that we would have anyway, because there is never time to do another take.

Photo: JPI

How did you find out that you were nominated? 

SUSAN:  One of the producers, Randy Dugan called me, or I wouldn’t have found out for a couple of days,

What are your thoughts on this being a virtual Daytime Emmys ceremony because of COVID-19?  We don’t know anything about will play out yet or what that will look like, but it is back on network TV.

SUSAN:  It’s going to be a wonderful surprise.

So, if they have the shot of the nominees, do you think you’d be dressed in comfortable clothes or more formal?

SUSAN:  Well, I’d certainly wear my best earrings if I were at home, yeah.  If my grandson can arrange us to get on the internet (we have a grandson living on our property, and he’s our live-in techy), we will get dressed up, and sit there, if that’s the way to do it.

DAYS did very well receiving 22 overall nominations and a lot of your co-stars got nomination as well.

SUSAN:  Yes, an excellent year for nominations for our show.

How many times have you been nominated now? 

SUSAN:  This makes six.

Photo: IMDB

Would it mean a lot to you to get the award?

SUSAN:  The Lifetime Achievement meant a lot.  It wouldn’t be bad to win this year.  I’ll say that.  It would be sweet for the show, since I am now the oldest living cast member of the original family – the original, original.  I’m not the original Julie, but close enough.  So, I think that would be some validation for the longevity of this original storytelling.  People look at the show and say, “Are you part of the DiMera family or the Brady family?”  I say, “I’m part of the Horton family!”

What did your husband Bill say when he found out you were nominated?

SUSAN:  (Yells) Billy, what did you say when you found out I was nominated?

BILL:  Yay!!!

SUSAN:  That’s about right. (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

What a guy!

SUSAN:  I know!  What a guy, what a guy, what a guy!

I was really happy to see your name among the other well-deserving nominees.

SUSAN:  I know you are because I know you care.  Who knows what will happen? It isn’t going to ruin our lives you know, one way or another.  But it was very nice to receive this acknowledgment from my peers.

So, are you glad Susan received a nomination for her work in her emotional storyline? Do you think she should finally receive the Emmy for her performances? Comment below.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

DAYS Chandler Massey Chats On His Bittersweet Daytime Emmy Nomination

He’s won three Daytime Emmys in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series three years in row in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and now Chandler Massey is going for gold for the second time in his career in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series which in a field where he is competing with two co-stars from Days of our Lives among others.

Massey has long been a stand out performer, giving nuanced and emotional portrayals in the angst-ridden life of Will Horton and the love of his life, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).

Back in February of this year, DAYS fans learned that Chandler and Freddie had taped their last episodes, and since the NBC soap tapes more than 6 months ahead of air, that the two will still be on the air into the fall.  That has made this moment of recognition for Massey all the more poignant.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Chandler to get his reaction to the news that he is once again a Daytime Emmy nominee, and here’s what he had to say about it all.

Photo: JPI

 

I thought it was great that you received another Emmy nomination.  What do you think?

CHANDLER:  Yeah.  I thought it was pretty great too, actually.   I was surprised.  I wasn’t keeping up on when they were announcing the nominations.   I was thrilled that Wally (Kurth) and Paul (Telfer) also got nominated too in the same category.  So, hopefully, DAYS, has a decent shot to take it home.

What did you end up submitting that ultimately landed you the nomination?

CHANDLER:  I went with some scenes that aired on December 16th of last year (I just looked that up), where Will basically breaks up with Sonny when Sonny comes to visit him in prison.  I liked those because they were sort of subtle.  I just found myself drawn in when I watched it, and it wasn’t big or dramatic, but it felt like two real people sharing their pain.  So, that’s why I chose it.

Photo: JPI

I remember those.  Those were heartbreaking because he had to get Sonny to let him go.

CHANDLER:  Yes.  He said he has a new prison boyfriend, and that he’s doing really well in prison, so he doesn’t want to be tied down. (Laughs)

You’ve had Freddie Smith as your scene partner for so much of your run on DAYS.  What did he give you in those scenes that helped you, or even further enabled the performance that you gave?

CHANDLER:  Freddie always gives everything.  He is a consummate professional, so he really commits every time.  I think it is more that we are just so comfortable with each other that we are not afraid, and that there is no hesitation between the two of us, so we just are able to do the work.  We usually know we are there to listen to, and support each other. in the scenes.

Photo: NATAS

Was your entire submission from the prison scenes or did you include something else?

CHANDLER:  It was just that.  I know I could have included something else, but I like to keep it sort of short because I feel like as a judge, I know within a few minutes.  It’s not that I get bored, but it really only takes a scene or two, and then, you’re like, “this is something special.”  You can recognize it pretty quickly.

So, you have won three Daytime Emmys. This is your first nomination in a few years, right?

CHANDLER:  Yeah, I didn’t get nominated the year before.  I had a gap year… to my family’s great shame. (Laughs)  They were not pleased with me.

Photo: JPI

This is your second nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Daytime Drama Series category.

CHANDLER:  Yes. I was nominated in ‘Supporting’ for the first time when I came back to DAYS, and then submitted for “Lead” the next year, didn’t get nominated, and then went back to ‘Supporting’.  I learned my place.  I went back to ‘Supporting’ for this year.  (Laughs)

It’s such a game though, right?  .

CHANDLER:  Yeah, you’ve got to be smart.  I just thought, “What the heck?”  Freddie and I were like, “Maybe there’s a shot that if we pick different categories, we can both get nominated,” but then, after that didn’t work, I said, “Screw that… going back to ‘Supporting”

Now, you’ve been through Emmy night before, and this is obviously going to be a virtual Emmy’s.  Now, if they did a six-shot of all of the nominees, what would you wear?  Would you be dressed up?  Would you be casual?  What would you see yourself doing?

CHANDLER:  That’s a good question. I think maybe… I’ll do a little of both.  I’ll go the middle ground.  I’ll be in my finest bathrobe, a silk bathrobe so it’s casual but also still sort of fancy.

There you go.  (Laughs)  Is this nomination all the more special for you in that you are no longer working at DAYS? 

CHANDLER:  Oh, totally.  Every year is special, but you know, I’m not on the show anymore, so it’s a nice reminder that the work that I did had an effect on people, and it won’t be forgotten for at least a few more hours.

Photo: JPI

I saw the fan outcry and show of support for you and Freddie, when viewers got wind that you were exiting the series.  It was sad and heartwarming at the same time.  The WilSon fans are so behind you guys.

CHANDLER:  Yeah, if only they knew what horrible people that we were in real life, then they wouldn’t be this way, but thankfully… (Laughs)  Yeah, it’s really nice, but it is sad.  I started in 2009, and that was over 10 years ago, and nothing lasts forever.  I had a really, really great run, and so did Freddie.  I am very satisfied and don’t feel jipped, or like, I was entitled to anything more than I got.

Courtesy/NBC

Obviously, your co-nominees, Wally and Paul you worked with many times.  What can you say about them?

CHANDLER:  I think that both men deserve definitely to get second and third place.  (Laughs)  I have known Wally for a while now.  I love him.  I think his work is phenomenal.  I think he is really, really underrated.  Paul, I don’t know as well, but I think obviously his work speaks for himself.  If only he were physically attractive, I think that would really, really help his career.

Photo: JPI

I know, it’s a shame.

CHANDLER:  Unfortunately, he is kind of schleppy, you know?  (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

Did Freddie reach out to you after you received the nomination?  

CHANDLER:  Oh yes, he sent a text congratulating me, and we talked about it.  It was nice.  I feel like our stories are so intertwined, the scenes we submit are mostly with each other.  So, it’s really kind of a shared accolade.

So, will you be rooting for Chandler to cap off his career on DAYS with an Emmy win on June 26th during the virtual ceremony on CBS? What did you think of the nominated scenes he submitted? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
