Hey – this beats a poke in the eye with a sharp stick! Thanks for making the ceremony available. It didn’t have the “bells&whistles” that a live on TV broadcast would have had, but it was just fine. There is a difference between ‘knowing’ who won an award and ‘seeing’ who won an award. Thanks for posting this video of the ceremony. I appreciate it.

I loved when GH won at the end and Steve Burton stood up and applauded:). Only actor from another table to do so. Very classy of him. And I also liked they asked Tristan to come up with the show. It was nice to se him and Tony together with Finola.

Very nice gesture! Wish it were more than a “gesture”–wish “Robert” would come back to GH.

“he” (Steve Burton) has a nice smile…. I was like woah

was nice

I miss Steve Burton… HE “made” the character of Sam…. “work” as a twosome TEAM

watching nuJason and Sam… currently… is beyond reason….

these two are … as I’ve been holding steady… are now “fast forward” material

argh! Maxie is asking Sam for Nancy Drew Show…. her pet with muscles will follow dutifully…

so.. here comes the unfolding of who is Claudette…. as Dr. O is telling Nathan… “at all cost” do not say a word about…. their past with “Claudette”

it’s all so cutesy cutesy… Sam is “handed” clues… and it all comes out neatly bow tied and why not

it’s all too adorable…. hope we have another barn scene with more hay

Thanks for posting this, Michael! Allowed me to fast forward through the fluff and only watch the awards I cared about. I loved Tyler Christopher’s speech. He seemed genuinely shocked and moved to have won, probably cause everyone assumed it was Tony Geary’s award to win. Very happy for Tyler. He’s been good at GH for so many years, and it’s nice to see him be recognized. Hard to believe it’s been 20 years since he debuted.

Very happy for Bryan Craig as well. He gets a lot of criticism on this site and others, and I never quite understand that. I think he’s grown a lot as an actor since he debuted on the show, and that he really shined with the bi-polar story. Congrats also to Sean Blakemore. That one was a surprise considering how little he was on the show last year, and also to GH alum Mary Beth Evans!

Wonderful to see GH back in the win column again for Best Drama Series. I thought Frank and company did a great job in submitting the two episodes that they did, the obviously fantastic 52nd Anniversary show which I said at the time it aired was gonna get them an Emmy, and a show from December that featured a lot of emotion and wonderful acting. One episode representing the Carlivati era, one episode representing the Passanante/Altman era, the best of both worlds, and everyone gets to share in the award, as it should be.

The only negative I saw with the Emmy broadcast is the band they had playing the soap themes, or whatever that was, with all due respect to whoever was involved, that was cringe worthy. Especially playing the GH theme from like 5 years ago. Just play the theme songs from the actual shows like they’ve done on the Emmys for years. Those are the small details that soap fans like for on a show like this.

Overall I enjoyed it. There were some moments I could have done without (The Talk hosts, the Real hosts).

Loved Obba’s speech. Got teary eyed with Mary Beth and Stephen Nichols. Nicolas B from GH is adorable. Tyler’s speech was great too.

Yay for no commercials. Loved the Muppets. The Lifetime Achievement award was nice and the package of her clips.

Camera crew didn’t always know who to focus on when the nominees were announced.

Jessica gave a nice speech and seems like a nice person. If she’d been like that on Y&R, I would have enjoyed her performance more.

Very nice, appropriate, and heartfelt, genuine speeches by Mary Beth and Tyler–no grandstanding–just sincere. Refreshing indeed!
Re Emmys program: I could have done without the opening with the Muppets–but I understand why they were featured.

Thank you so much Michael for being such a thoughtful, dedicated and may I say excellent Soap journalist, soap news provider, and enthusiast. If it weren’t for your site, I would have nowhere else to go to obtain the most up-to-date soaps information, watch my favorites on the Daytime Emmy this year, watch or hear your in depth interviews with soap actors, view clips and get to express my opinion. There should be an award given for the best go to Soap website. I nominate Michael Fairman’s On Air/On Soaps and you Michael- You should be recognized. I’m sure you love what you do and have so much fun doing it, but let’s face it..you work hard. Thank you for providing us fans with all that you do.

Frank said…”This cast, led by Laura Wright and Maurice Benard…”. Laura, while arguably the best Carly, and a fantastic actress, has been on the show for 11 years, while some others have double or even triple that time. He shouldn’t have mentioned names, especially only two names. He just should have thanked THE CAST….not the cast led by anyone. To choose just two actors in a bloated ensemble cast just reeks of favoritism and narcissism. Sonny and Carly are VERY polarizing characters, and judging by all the fan message boards, the vote is split as to whether the characters are loved or hated. I certainly don’t feel they lead the cast. To me, all their scenes together are fast forward material because I can’t stand either character, as they are both sanctimonious hypocritical blood thirsty mobsters who feel that their lives are more important than anyone else’s. Laura’s luminous presence makes the character of Carly tolerable, for me, but just tolerable. If she had a really dynamic love interest, who was not a murderer or mobster, that would be awesome!! In ALL my years of watching the Emmy Awards, I have never heard such a callous comment by an Executive Producer while accepting an award. Knowing the fragile ego’s of some actors, I predict some ruffled feathers after that comment.

I totally agree with your take on Frank’s comment and about the Sonny and Carly characters.

I cannot believe that Sean Blakemore won for Supporting. I think he was in about 5 shows last year. There should be some kind of minimum screen time requirement in order to get a nomination.
I am happy for Bryan Craig. He completely deserved that award. His work on the bipolar disorder story was great.
The announcer completely mispronounced Gina Tognoni’s name.
Michelle Stafford’s dress was gorgeous! What a beautiful body she has.
Did anyone else notice that Jacob Young was completely trashed while presenting?! He was slurring his words and really had no clue what he was talking about.
How cute were Tyler and Nicholas hugging when Tyler won? Nicholas was adorable at the end when GH won for best show. He was so excited!
The camera did not always know who the nominees were and sometimes focused on the wrong people.
Mary Beth Evans and Stephen Nichols were adorable.
The band or orchestra who was playing the theme songs was pretty amateur. They sounded like a high school band.

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.

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.
