Friday night saw a new victor emerge in the Digital Drama Series categories, as well as top-rated soap, The Young and the Restless taking home the most gold at the 46th annual Daytime Creative Emmy Awards held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, in Pasadena California.

After Forever tells the story of two middle-aged gay men whose love and their marriage were both supposed to last forever.  But when one unexpectedly dies, “forever” is cut short, and the other must learn to negotiate not only his grief, but the world as a, now, single gay man in his early 50’s.”  The series took home the gold in four categories including: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Digital Drama Series, Supporting Actress in a Digital Drama Series and for Writing and Producing for a Digital Drama Series.  Some very familiar names to soap fans won for the digital series including Kevin Spirtas (Ex-DAYS) for his leading role and former OLTL, GL and ATWT director, Jennifer Pepperman.  Spirtas and his writing partner for After Forever, Michael Slade (Ex-DAYS) also won in the writing category.

For The Young and the Restless behind the scenes talents, they took home five awards including: art direction, lighting direction, sound mixing,, costume design, and hairstyling.  Days of our Lives picked up three in the makeup, music composition, and casting categories.  The Bold and the Beautiful took in two statuettes with wins for original song and for technical team, and General Hospital scored one for multi-camera editing.

0ooh hair-styling on Y&R-
Every blond is from the same bottle..
Line up the blonds (back of heads) and they all are near same hair length and the same blond color LOL

Not one has a modern style, most all ‘long’ hair that has no style to it, it just hangs..

The Wiglets/Top of Head Clip-in hairpiece and extensions are multiple on the older.
None look natural/their age hair LOL

I dunno know about that award.. crazy stuff.

Victor/Eric is the only natural senior..
only one over 60 with grey hair..

I am sorry, I just do not understand how DOOL won again for Outstanding Music Direction and Composition for a Drama Series…IMO DOOL by far has the worst background music and hasn’t had great background music since they let Marty Davich go years ago…

EMPIRE’s Final Season Cut Short Due To COVID-19; Series Finale Now Set For April 21

Will we now ever know just how the lives of Empire’s Lucious  (Terrence Howard) and Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) and their dysfunctional family will resolve now that the series has had to scrap two of their planned episodes in their final season?  The sixth and final season was scheduled to run for a total of 20 episodes.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the production shutdown left them with only 18 episodes tht could be completed.

That means, as first announced during last night’s episode of Empire via voice-over: “Get ready for the shocking final three episodes of ‘Empire,’”  that reveal let viewers of Empire know there was change in plans.”  Now, the shortened season and series finale end on FOX on April 21st.

Reports also note that episode 19 was partially shot and that footage of that unfinished episode will be cut into the finale.

As to what happens with the character of Jamal Lyon played by Jussie Smollett, who everyone knows ran into significant trouble with the law; on last reports executives said he would not be back for the final episodes of the series, although there has still have been mentions of the character throughout season 6.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
