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.

thee overall embarrassment… yet I must give thanks to “youtube” for featuring so much weak

I have to give thanks to Kathie Lee Gifford… snarky AND gracious all humbled in to a lovely subtle kind effort she put out their. that was all you need do, Kathie… so put out your Christian realism… and let GOD speak for you

the serial categories were so weak AND mind numbing .. and once again the stench will not go away… ARGH !!!!

I have truly – now given up

HOW ON EARTH !!!! the emmy panel disrespected

Male Lead : Jon Lindstrom ; Tyler Christopher ; Billy Flynn ; even Peter Bergman !!!! I watch @GH 365 days a year… in no way was Maurice Benard 20 minute reel worth even the nomination he got. THIS JOKE will never go away. WOW head scratcher… I have already posted several times…. had Max Gail not been on the show… @Sonny character would not be on this list… Max Gail did not need Maurice Benard for his lauded employment.

Female Lead : ???? Jacquee from B&B WHAT ???? !!!! are we passing the gold around ????? SURE SEEMS like it… what with 4 shows to choose from. dang ! thankfully the actors get their own statue so the stank on shit isn’t wasted

supporting Male : Max Gail. we milk the best their is. LOL… even I could tell he is not an actor for the awards… AND if he’s just moving right along… with grace not to comment on this bottom grind of the mill. dag! I’ve seen and read enough to read his stat. he is a very well composed caring man who sees past this stuff… AND is clearly aware of the shortcomings – WRITING – this bottom feader suffers

supporting female: Vernee Watson . Lady ! you have a command unlike no other… your voice resonates… vibes… and carries . that does not make you a two time emmy. this year was so loaded with other talent that should have been awarded. I knew you could win… just hoped the dead on arrival emmy panel would have steered ^^^^ spreading the gold… since they wasted two on best lead Male and female. WOW !!!! every woman nominated deserved this win… it was thee loudest thud when whomever dropped the mic

THEE CLEAR WINNERS AND WELL NOTED BEST LAUDED GOTTA HAND IT TO THEM. YES!

@ DAYS Kyler Pettis EX @DAYS THeo
@GH Hayley Erin EX @GH Kiki

I LOVE THESE TWO TO BITS… from the get go I knew they had the acting chop.

yeah it bites it stings it REEKS even… yet I must put out their … that if @DAYS was going to lose the trifecta… i’d prefer @Y&R WIN…we all knew… that Mal Young was fired for very good reason… FIRED writer and executive producer for the less than product this past year REELED. so that is my reward this year… and that @GH was not given any consideration… because until Frank Valentini , Shelly AND Chris UP THEIR GAMESMANSHIP… I can’t write… but we as long time fans.. do know our stuff… I gladly share that

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Preview: After Tracy Takes Incriminating Photos of Finn; It All Points to Him Losing Custody of Violet

It’s clear that General Hospital is headed towards really taking Finn (Michael Easton) all the way down to the depths of despair, when his family and friends, while trying to do the right thing and protect his daughter, Violet (Jophielle Love), from any harm, are also setting the guy up for a real punch to the gut.

Thus far, Finn started drinking heavily after his father Gregory passed away in the middle of the night. Now, it looks like his daughter will be taken away from him.

In story on the Friday’s June 19th episode, after Finn cuts his hand accidentally on broken glass, he ends up passing out on the floor from excessive drinking. Violet comes upon her dad, and ends up calling Tracy (Jane Elli0t). When Tracy shows up, she calls the paramedics, who inform her that the issue with Finn is he drank too much.

Once Violet goes over to Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard), Tracy goes back to Finn’s and takes photos on her phone of Finn passed out, a bottle of booze, the glass and the entire scenario.

So, between Brook Lynn, Chase and Tracy, it looks like Finn will not stand a chance at keeping custody of Violet, unless one of them sticks up for the good doc? In true soap-fashion, it would seem most likely, a court will grant temporary custody to Brook Lynn and Chase, setting up some kind of emotional full custody battle down the line? Stay tuned.

Teasers for the week of June 24-28 on GH indicate the following:

MONDAY, JUNE 24

Tracy issues an ultimatum. Chase and Brook Lynn seek legal advice. Carly plots a bold move. Molly and TJ have a heart-to-heart. Ava gets an earful.

TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 2024

Jason and Elizabeth discuss their son. Carly opens up to Brennan. Anna makes a discovery. Valentin makes a proposal. Finn suffers a setback.

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26

Trina delivers bad news. Ava is on the warpath. Mac visits Cody. Alexis makes a revelation. Gio is alarmed. 

THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 2024 

Chase supports Finn. Jason and Danny bond. Dante voices his concerns to Sam. Dex surprises Josslyn.

FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 2024

Carly and Jason clash. Sonny and Natalia get closer. Ava seeks out Laura. Brook Lynn and Chase make a big decision. Blaze has some tough questions for Kristina.

So, what did you think of Tracy taking photos of Finn passed out drunk? Are you on Tracy, Brook Lynn and Chase’s side, or do you think Finn will sober up when he realizes Violet will be taken from him? Share your theories via the comment section below.

Ryan Paevey Makes Statement on Why He is Stepping Back from Acting While Being ‘Grateful to General Hospital for Giving a Green Actor a Chance’ and ‘Hallmark for Changing My Life’

GH and Hallmark fan favorite, Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) wanted to clear the air after numerous reports and rumors had him quitting acting altogether and what that meant for any future projects in Hollywood he may have had planned.

Paevey released an exclusive statement to Heavy.com where he shared what is going on in his life. Back on June 19th, Ryan deactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and he may have deactivated his Instagram account on Friday as well, or as of this writing.

For Ryan, the decision to change his current life’s trajectory came after a series of events; chief among them moving closer to home to take care of his ailing mother who is battling lung cancer and social media scammers.

Here is what Ryan shared: “Hey everyone…so first and foremost, I am a bit apprehensive that I even have to make a statement like this. I am certainly accustomed to a certain degree of gossip, but the past few weeks in particular have gotten out of control with speculation from third parties that have taken my words and expanded upon them to meet their narrative, or flat out misrepresented my words or misconstrued their meaning. I have always been an open book, and one who speaks his mind truthfully and directly, and it is unfortunate that we live in a world where social media makes it very easy to twist one’s words; I am often unaware it is even happening until someone from my team messages me in a panic, and so I feel it best to make a formal statement through HEAVY.”

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.

Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?
