WATCH THE REPLAY: 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: What Was Your Favorite Moment?


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.

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.

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.

OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.

Cause of Death of Disney and ‘GH: Night Shift’ Alum, Cameron Boyce Deferred Following Autopsy; Industry Heartbroken Over Loss

Fans, and the entertainment industry including; many soap opera notables, have been saddened over the sudden death of the very popular Disney Channel star, Cameron Boyce over this past weekend.

On Monday, an autopsy was performed and the cause of death was ‘deferred pending further investigation’ according to the L.A. County Department of Medical Examiner Coronier’s office.

Boyce was found unresponsive in his home on Saturday afternoon.  A spokesperson for the Boyce family said in statement previously that the beloved actor died from a seizure in his sleep: “It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron.  He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.”

Although, best known for his roles on the Descendants and the TV series Jessie,  as well as the movies Grown Up and Grown Ups 2 that starred Adam Sander, Boyce was only 20 years old.

Boyce also appeared on General Hospital’s spin-off, GH: Night Shift in the role of Stone, the son of Jagger Cates (Antonio Sabato Jr.) and Karen.  Upon learning of his death, his former on-screen dad, Sabato Jr. tweeted: ” Rest In Peace Cameron Boyce, it was an honor to have worked with you and spend our time together. Man my heart is broken, what an amazing kid with an amazing future. My deepest condolences to his family & friends. We will all miss you. #brokenheart.”

Kimberly McCullough, (Robin, GH) posted, “#CameronBoyce Had the pleasure of working with him on Night Shift where he played ‘Stone Jr.’ Broke out some crazy legs one day on set.  That’s how I’ll remember him. RIP bright soul.”

Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, Y&R) shared a video with Boyce.  Michelle’s daughter Natalia was a big fan of Boyce.  Staffotd wrote in her Instagram post: “NO ONE and NOTHING is way cooler than you, you beautiful, sweet, Talented shining star. Anyone who has young children has probably watched this man 1 million times! And seen just how talented he is. What an honor to have met this young, charismatic man who joyfully sent this message to my daughter who is IN LOVE with him. I want to send out my love and prayers to Cameron’s family. This is a GREAT loss for all of us. God Speed. You will ALWAYS shine bright ”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kim Drugs Drew, Hayden Returns, Liesl Overboard As Secrets Mount

In a Monday’s installment of ABC’s General Hospital, the series left viewers with three major cliffhangers and the week has just started.  All of the action and the drama centered around the long-awaited wedding reception of Franco (Roger Howarth) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).

As everyone gathered at the ‘Haunted Star’ for the celebration, many of the guests are on edge, and one is schnockered.  When Kim (Tamara Braun) arrives with Julian (William deVry), Drew is speaking to Terry (Cassandra James).  With a moment alone, Drew asks Julian how Kim is doing.  He tells Drew to take a closer look, meaning she is not doing well at all since Oscar’s death.  Later, when a conversation ensues between Kim and Drew, he reassures her that even though Oscar is gone, they will always be family. Kim wonders if that means it’s still possible for them to have another child together.  Drew tells her he cannot do that right now.  That sets the stage for the shocker of the episode that has had fans tweeting since it aired.

When the fuses apparently blow and the lights go out on the ‘Haunted Star”, Kim and Drew go to locate it, and once at the fuse box, Kim stabs Drew with a syringe.  Then, Kim knows exactly how to turn the fuse box back on, and we see Drew blindsided by Kim’s action.  Has GH made Kim unhinged?  Does this mean that she is going to rape Drew?

Elsewhere, Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) is drunk.  She has many secrets that could ruin several lives of the citizens of Port Charles at the reception. She tells Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) that Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) relationship is going to hit the skids.  Brad overhears this!  Add to that, Liesl gets Nina (Cynthia Watros) to introduce her to Jax  (Ingo Rademacher) and starts asking him if he’s heard from his brother, Jerry. She informs Jax that they go way back to the Helena Cassadine days.  Franco (Roger Howarth) comes to get a drunken Liesl and she breaks down in front of him about how lonely she is and all the secrets she knows about Wiley, Brad, Lucas, and Wiley’s real father.  We see someone else eavesdropping on their conversation.   As the episode comes to it’s conclusion, Liesl is pushed overboard.  But who did it? Brad, Valentin, someone else?


Throughout the episode, guest star, Veronica Cartwright plays psychic, Sibley Gamble, who is hired by Ava (Maura West) to reconnect her to her late daughter, Kiki.  But in the process, Sibley drops bombshells at those at the Metro Court … and at the wedding reception.  She tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) she has a cryptic message from Madeline Reeves revolving around tweezers. She tells Franco he won’t be feeling himself soon and she warns Finn (Michael Easton) that he’ll still have more women in his life than he can handle.  And ,,, wouldn’t you know? Who should arrive at the reception … Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig)!


As for the backdrop – the wedding reception – Liz and Franco had their romantic dip, Liz’s sons: Cameron (William Lipton), Jake (Hudson West), and Aiden (Jason David) performed an adorable song for their mom and step-dad, and Terry caught the bouquet! Will they give the good doctor a love interest?  If so, who might it be?

So, what did you think about Kim drugging Drew? Who pushed Liesl overboard? What trouble will Hayden cause?  Share your theories via the comment section below.
