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…

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.
