In case you missed the live-stream of the 46th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, NATAS released today the full version available now online.  (However, you can watch it in its entirety below).

The ceremony featured some special moments including: Presenter Shemar Moore taking time to pay tribute to the late Kristoff St. John before giving out the Outstanding Drama Series award; which eventually went to St. John’s show, The Young and the Restless.

Moore stated: “This year, we had to say goodbye to a good man, a great man, a special individual, Mr. Kristoff St. John.  I want to thank CBS. I want to thank The Young and the Restless and I want to thank the cast of The Young and the Restless for honoring him the right way. The tribute that aired this past week on The Young and the Restless, saying goodbye to Kristoff and his character, Neil Winters, was so beautifully, beautifully done. I know Kristoff is proud of all of us.”

Shemar went on to share: “He opened the door for so many of us, myself and a lot of you out there.  So as you continue young actors, carry his torch with pride.”  In the emotional highpoint, Shemar expressed that Kristoff was: “The most iconic, popular, thorough, professional, talented, big-hearted, generous African-American actor in soap opera history.  We will never, ever forget you, my brother.”

GH’s Maurice Benard (Sonny), who was surprised at his victory in the Lead Actor category, was at a loss for words and delivered a moving speech about his castmates in the Alzheimer’s storyline, and the disease. It has been over 15 years since Benard won his first Emmy for his role as Sonny Corinthos.

Alex Trebek, who previously announced he was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer, won the Outstanding Game Show Host category.  When accepting the award, Trebek admitted worrying about how the sympathy vote would impact his win. “I’m not a big fan of sympathy votes. We should be judged on the merits of our work,” he went on to say. “However, last year, I had just had major surgery to remove two life-threatening blood clots. You think that would elicit a certain amount of sympathy. But I didn’t win, so maybe I’ve been worrying about the wrong thing.  So I’ll do what Sally Field did (referring to her notable Oscar-winning speech).  You guys like me, and you value my work.  I tell you if that’s the case, I can live with that.”

In addition to the above, B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) was a surprise winner in the Lead Actress category, and Amy Poehler turned out to be Judge Judy’s biggest fan and presented Judy with her Lifetime Achievement Award.

Plus, Max Gail (Mike), who so many people were rooting for; took home the gold for his moving portrayal in the Alzheimer’s storyline on GH, Mal Young won two Daytime Emmys for Drama Series and Writing after being ousted by Y&R, and Kathie Lee Gifford won an Emmy in her final season of  Today with Hoda Kotb and was also honored and delivered a moving speech as she departs daytime.

Alex Trebek win for Game Show Host.
Shemar Moore’s lovely tribute to co-star, Kristoff St. John
Y&R trifecta win and they could win 11th Daytime Drama Series next year if Josh Griffith submits Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John) death.

The Emmys : I agreed with the awards to Theo, Gail, Vernee ; however, the others were a no, no . Maura , Jon , and Days should have won. If Marla was in the running , she should have won against anyone in her category. If it was Vernee ,it would be a toss up. Yet, I would probably lean towards Marla.

Just finished watching. Glad I was able to fast forward through most of it. It was nice to see clips of the actors. I don’t watch GH, but Vernee sure served it. Happy to see Jacqui win. Shemar’s tribute to Krisoff was really nice. Thought Mal was a bit self-grandiose in his best drama speech. Was surprised some of the Y&R bigs weren’t in attendance.

Congratulations to everyone.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
