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.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
