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…

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.

Check out the full winners circle list from last night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.
