I agree, Aria.

Let’s face it. The only reason “Young and the Restless” is an awards magnet is because “All My Children,” “As the World Turns” and “Guiding Light” are off the air.

Those shows were always winning the bulk of the Emmys. (no offense to “One Life to Live,” never an Emmy fave).

Wow you sound so negative. LOL. I have known Jill for over 20 years Aria. Young and the Restless cleaned house at the Daytime Emmy Awards. Jill is a hard worker and loves her job. You haters out there need to shut up and get a life. Jill has kept, y&r at number 1. Yes Jill has made mistakes, she is not perfect. But who is? We all make mistakes. Jill is sick and tired of the gossip, The negative gossip comes from soap sites twitter and people make up bs. I hope everyone reads this, this has to stop.… Read more »

So what if you have known her for 20 years. Facts are facts. Things were better last year than they were under MAB’s reign but they are pitiful this year. IF JFP has a problem with long time FANS who have actually watched from Y&R from day 1 calling her out on the consistent downward slide of the soap she EPs, she is in the wrong business. Maybe she should focus her energy not being sick of it but rather doing something about it. You are not objective, as evidenced by you trying to pass off real people who are… Read more »

And PS, maybe you should shut up and get a life Angela. This is a reputable soap site and this is an article for Y&R fans, not JFP brown nosers. If you are really her friend, you should be honest with her and try to help her. Long time Y&R fans are not going to take the trashing of this show quietly. We didn’t with Bill Bell Jr.’s wife. What makes you think we will with JFP if she also deserves it?

typo in my other post: “make us BS” should be “make up BS.”

angela, doesn’t mean anything that Y&r cleaned at the emmys, most critics not fans but critics said GH had a better year, yet the were not even nominated, how does something like that happen? plus the shows are only requiered to submit 2 episodes for consideration, if she wants to pat herself on the back for being able to find two worthy episodes then let her have at it, still i’m not really complaining here because thank goodness she no longer runs GH. and thats a blessing.

She should only care about what her friends and family think of her— and professionally what her bosses think of her work. It was George Clooney who said once when discussing how he handles fame– “You are never as good as they say you are and you are never as bad as they say you are” The negative comments are never going to stop– so she should learn to ignore them, which should be easy if she is as hard working as you say she is, she shouldn’t have time to read all the negative comments.

Congrats to the Young and the Restless, I am so happy that Amelia and Billy Miller won. They both deserve it. Jill Phelps still needs to be fired, she is a soap killer. I loved Kathy Griffin, she was so funny. Lol.

The awards were for last year’s Y&R and JFP thanked Josh Griffith as she should have. Unless there is a miracle or a mass-firing, I doubt Y&R will enjoy as much success with next year’s Emmys. Passante and Altman need to GO. If JFP is keeping them on, she needs to GO too.

CBS, despite dropping ATWT and GL, remains the broadcaster most committed to daytime. Maybe the Eye can see clearly now and accept the Daytime Emmys as a quality special presentation in primetime in 2015 and beyond. And hopefully do it better than the year the ceremony and show was little more than a commercial for Las Vegas tourism.

I challenge CBS to capitalize on its history and present accolades to create another soap opera for its daytime lineup. I believe there can be success with such a project.

Ironic that this has been their best awards year because it’s been their WORST year for quality and one of the worst for ratings.

I’m so disgusted that they won so many awards. CBS won’t care about the dwindling ratings or the disappointment of fans, they’ll keep Jill Farren Phelps and her hack writers around until it’s almost too late like ABC, mistakenly, did.

The circumstances related to the firing of Michael Muhney (who never was given the chance to defend himself) angered many viewers. JFP has taken a lot of heat for firing one of the best, if not the best, actor on a daytime drama. Now, the Daytime Emmys have been awarded and it looks like the voters banded together to back and protect JFP. Hunter King – allegedly involved in the firing of MM – a winner. Billy Miller – OK, a good actor, but not as brilliant as MM who was robbed again.. Y&R – best writing team – best… Read more »

Amelia Heinle is a good actress but there are much better actress in the other 3 soaps, and that is a fact.. Billy Miller was the only one from Y&R deserving of the award, congrats to Billy Miller.. Y&R was not the best soap of the year, DOOL and GH both were much better.. But then again GH and DOOL did not hold the Emmy committee , to give them the win..

The emmy show was as boring as the soap that won from what ive been reading…Days was ten times better…Coronation Street would beat them all in drama and acting categories if it was carried by one of our networks and nominated!!!

Mary SF
Guest

The general public confuses entertainment value for artistic value– the shows aren’t being judged for how entertaining they are to the public, these are industry awards to honor outstanding work. They don’t look at how entertained they were watching the reel, but how it was in crafted. And it is just a reel, not a year’s worth of work. I am sure Y&R submitted scenes from the Delia’s death story line, which was real drama– well written, beautifully acted, it deserved the award. And that is why they killed off that character– to get a great Emmy reel. It was… Read more »

Your absolutely right…as for the Delia storyline i myself wrote somewhere(there goes my memory again…ugh!) that this is how the show won-it was well written and acted as you also said, and Billy Miller deserved his emmy…i shouldnt have said Days was ten times better because parts i like wouldnt be eligible til next year! I like GH but if the stories had more continuity and far less campy it might have gotten nominated for an emmy…

Days won last year for the daysaster and their 45th amniversary episode.

Mary SF
Guest

@code are you certain? I mean considering their 45th anniversary was in 2010 and the Emmy they won in 2013 was for work done in 2012, I can’t see how they could have won for a show that aired two years before their Emmy win. Perhaps I was confusing the show with an acting reel, but I still think the Academy, which includes a lot gay people would have “rewarded” the show for the gay story line even if the reel about daysaster.

It’s no big deal to win an emmy for the work of one episode.

I would like it to be 12 episodes for each of the four soaps…1 per month.
There could be 12 sets of voters…each set of voters would view 1 episode of the 4 soaps and cast their vote. Add up all the votes and you have a winner based on the whole year!

If what I proposed would have already taken place, Y&R would not have won!

Patrick

That, just might be a brilliant idea

I know DAYS lost… should it have won? darn tootin

it has to be about a body of work…

12 months in a year
1 ep per month

voting is done each month and tabulated

after all is said and done…. I know DAYS is excellent
Y&R is sub par

with only 4 serials left….

i have to agree with some fans… the just delight in seeing Y&R knocked off it’s #1 perch… would be WIN WIN enough WINS

FAN WIN

Let’s face it, when there’s less competition, the likelihood of you winning goes up. And when you have multiple nominees in each category from your show, the odds go up that much higher. The material submitted was strong, sure. But let’s call a spade a spade. They won a lot more because their chances were almost always 1 out of 4 or higher (sometimes much higher). Looking at it the other way though, this is the first time in recent memory (10 years at least if not more??) a GHer never made it up to podium. To my point, there’s… Read more »

Y&R was terrible the past year.. Nowhere near being the best soap..

but then;

The Emmy committee was from CBS:
Angelica McDaniel CBS Vice President of daytime programming, Co-Chair
John C. Fisher, Producer The Young and the Restless, Co-Chair

(no ABC or NBC representing)

I’d bet the Emmy bill was paid for by CBS/Sony Japan 😉

Well Duh— that has been the way its been since the Daytime Emmy began. Every show wins based on ONE REEL– and if the show you liked had won, you wouldn’t have a problem with it. By your logic everyone who ever won an Emmy including those you like were technically not worthy of one because it wasn’t based on their whole year’s worth of work— Come on– in sports it doesn’t matter how many games you won throughout the year, the only game that matters is the championship game– you lose it or win it on ONE game– so… Read more »

@4everDAYS—this might sound like a cop out but I honestly don’t have a favorite– I watch all four and each has their strength and their weaknesses — but if I were to be stranded on a island and told I could only watch one– I would have to pick Y&R, simply because it is the only soap that is character center– they tell stories about the human heart and condition– yes it has been done better in the past, and those stories are slower and not action packed,but over all I would still pick those type of stories to watch… Read more »

Shame on Michelle and Billy for leaving Y&R for other leads for prime shows, can’t wait for whatever(?), and go back to daytime, to General Hospital. Seems the actors and actresses that Y&R finds to create their ‘rolls’ for their show, have not got great instinct for hiring such great actors, but then they go behind their backs to another soap opera, to gain more control, to get what they want. The same girl that played “Chloe” left for the prime time. And, more power to her, because she is a great actress, period. But, I’m sure she would go… Read more »

Eileen makes the psychotic yet vulnerable Kristen a flawed vixen I actually feel sorry for.

YR is and will always be my fav show, but I don’t think they deserved best writing for last year. I would have given them the Emmy for direction instead. Based on what was SUBMITTED, it does seem like YR would have won for best show. Was it the best last year? Probably not. But certainly better than GH for sure, which was NOT nominated for its Nurse’s Ball mess. The cast and crew that won however was most deserving. They have the best cast on Daytime.

Y&R has been one of my favorites too– the writing team submitted and won for the episode where Billy is waiting for the EMT and he has all those flash forwards of what Delia’s life might be. It was a well written show, and the Emmy is based on that, and that alone. As fans we both know the whole reason they killed that character was to get good Emmy reels out of it— so they won it fair and square– if a chef enters a cooking contest he doesn’t have to enter all the recipes he ever made, which… Read more »

Yeah, I wasn’t a big fan of the flash forward scenes.

Delia wasn’t a huge part of the show if most of us are honest, so there was no emotional pull that we would get from a more established character.

In any event, I’m glad for the show because they have gotten the shaft in previous years when they should have won Emmys “hands down”, and they were passed up.

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
