Sure, daytime has the Emmys, but this is something more special. I think what makes the Dankies so special is that the fans are involved in every stage of the process — from the nominations to the finalists to the winners. There’s no other awards process that allows this much fan involvement. ”

No Michelle Stafford for lead actress? What the hell? Stafford is pretty much excellent in practically all her scenes. Can people accuse her of overacting or scene chewery? Yes. But no one can say she’s boring or phoning in it in any scene. I like the acting choices she makes when Phyliss stammers or begins to lose it. Everytime Phyliss goes after Sharon, it’s a lot of fun. Stafford can bring drama and comedy and meld them seamlessly in a scene. It was great when Phyliss threatened to tell people Sharon was a kleptomaniac, and then Sharon called her bluff… Read more »

I’m really bummed that Scott Evans and the Kish s/l were snubbed from the fans’ final voting ballot=( At least Brett Claywell won for best newcomer for OLTL, but it’s just not the same (no matter what bottomchef says otherwise to the contrary!)

Oh, congrats to brett claywell for winning best newcomer. He’s certainly the newcomer on everyone’s minds, he’s omnipresent! LOL!

But everything is subjective CLB.

There are countless Emmy wins that I agree on: Finnigan’s second Emmy win, Flannery’s first Emmy for B&B, Case’s supporting actress nod, Grimes beating out Frantz for Cassie’s custody arc.

And there are countless Emmy wins that are completely perplexing.

But there are countless Emmy snubs that are even worse. Still no Emmys or even nominations for Melody Thomas Scott, Katherine Kelly Lang, Colleen Zenk Pinter, Bobbie Eakes, Hunter Tylo and Kimberlin Brown!

A best friend to so many of us who didn’t even know him, across the country.”

Ripa, co-hosted Live! with Philbin for 11 years, said mentioned that she and her husband Mark Consuelos were lucky to have their children surrounding them over the weekend when they learned of Philbin’s death.

Through her tears, Kelly expressed:  “As people get older, you always know that certain things are inevitable, and passing away is one of those things, but Regis is one of the people that we all believed, I think, would somehow figure out a way around the inevitable. It was not in the cards.”

Meanwhile over on NBC, Kathie Lee Gifford appeared on the Today Show remembering her enduring friendship and working relationship with Regis. Gifford co-hosted Live with Regis and Kathie Lee for many years.

Overcome with emotion, Kathie Lee recalled her final visit with Philbin and his wife Joy during a visit to the East Coast. Gifford now lives in Tennessee.

Gifford shared how she called The Philbins and said, “Can we get together, can we have some lunch?’ So they came over about two weeks ago,  We just had the best time.”’

However, Kathie Lee noted after they said their goodbyes:“I just thought to myself, ‘Lord’, is that the last time I’m going to see my friend?’ Cause he was failing, I could tell.  I was just so grateful the Lord gave me that final time.”  She also shared moments with her talk with Joy after Regis’ passing, where Joy said,”Kathie he hadn’t laughed in a long, long time.  I was so worried about him.  The day that we came to have lunch with you was the last time I heard him laugh.”

On their on-screen partnership, Kathie Lee said of her time with Regis: “We always respected each other’s opinions so highly. You know, in all the years we were together, we never had one cross word.”

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
