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…

However, Teledgy revealed:  “We are in a middle of finding out very soon,” and then added, “Of course Days of Our Lives is going to carry on. We love it. Millions of Americans watch it every week. I know that will be good news for the fans.”

Teledgy also told Deadline after the executive session that negotiations are still ongoing and the series will stay on NBC, and will not be moving onto the upcoming Peacock streaming service said to bow very soon.

The chairman’s comments come nearly two months following DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday’s comments to the cast that the show had been renewed for its upcoming season.  That came on the heels that for cost-cutting measures, during the dark months, that the cast had been let- \out of their contracts.

So it looks like it was a ‘Very Brady Christmas’ ala The Brady Bunch, and of course, a play on Greg’s Salem character of Eric Brady, especially when the couple used the hashtag #moderndaybradybunch with their pics on social media.  All six children along with Harmon and Vaughan, were donning matching holiday sweaters.
