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.

Are these daytime drama wins a sign of what is to come Sunday night in the major award ceremony?  Not necessarily!  Last year, Days was completely shut out at the ‘Creatives” and ended up winning the big three, Drama, Writing and Directing for a Drama Series and more.

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…

Tyra Banks Named New Host and Executive Producer of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

On the heels of the departures of Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews as hosts of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, comes word of just who the new host will be!

That gig is going to none other than former America’s Top Model host. Tyra Banks, who will also serve as the ballroom-dance competition’s executive producer for its upcoming 29th season set to air later this fall.

DWTS is watching very closely the coronavirus pandemic of just how and when they can begin production and how the show will look.

With the pick of Banks to helm the show,  ABC said that the team is planning to refresh the format, while “honoring the show America loves”.  DWTS is produced by BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production arm, alongside Andrew Llinares.

In a statement, Tyra Banks expressed: “I’ve been a fan of DWTS since its beginning. The fun mixed with raw emotion, seeing celebrities push past their comfort zones, the sizzling dance performances, it’s always transported me to my days of turning it up 10 notches on the catwalk. Tom has set a powerful stage, and I’m excited to continue the legacy and put on my executive producer and hosting hats.”

Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment shared: “Tom has been an integral part of the ABC family for nearly two decades, from hosting AFV to Dancing with the Stars – we are grateful for all he and Erin have done to make Dancing a success.  As we gear up for the show’s 29th season, we can’t wait to welcome Tyra Banks to our Dancing stage. Tyra is an award-winning multi-hyphenate whose fierce female prowess and influence across many industries have made an indelible mark. Her fresh take on America’s favorite dancing competition will surely bring more than a ‘Smize’ to fans everywhere.”

Valerie Bruce, general manager, LA Productions, BBC Studios, added, “Tyra Banks is an icon whose powerful presence, trademark confidence, and industry-leading achievements inspire us. We are proud to partner with ABC to welcome her as the new host of Dancing with the Stars. This represents a landmark moment in our 28 seasons producing Dancing with the Stars as we take this iconic show in a new creative direction. We offer our sincere thanks to Tom and Erin, whom we will always consider part of the Dancing with the Stars family.”

So, what do you think of Tyra as the new host and EP of Dancing with the Stars?  How will she liven up the format of the show? Comment below.
