Peter Bergman (Jack) who received wonderful news this past Wednesday that he was nominated this year for a Daytime Emmy nomination, along with his cast mate, Doug Davidson (Paul) in the Outstanding Lead Actor category, took time out to speak with On-Air On-Soaps about getting the recognition from his peers, but also talked about the glaring omission that has fans and soap pundits stunned… that Stacy Haiduk (Patty/Emily) did not pick up a Supporting Actress nomination, when many had predicted her to be one of the front runners.

Bergman said,  “I am sad that Stacy Haiduk did not receive a nomination.  She was the glue to this whole thing.  It’s worth saying that Doug Davidson’s performance on his tape is with him and Stacy, and it was enough to get him a nod. That is a great compliment to Stacy.  The way mine was a compliment to Sharon Case (Sharon) and Billy Miller (Billy), who were on my submission tape.  I have not made a secret of the fact that double identity is not my favorite storyline vehicles.  It has only worked on our show because Stacy Haiduk is so brilliant at it. I watched Tuesday’s air show, and the last scene we see of Patty, she is in a straight jacket.  They cut to her, and she is twelve years old, and it’s chilling.  She is now finally OK.  Patty is in safe place with her brother, and it contrasted so starkly to everything that actresses does.  And I said, “There she goes again…Stacy Haiduk!”

I’m so glad that Peter Bergman spoke out about Stacy Haiduk. I agree 100% that she deserved a nomination mote than any actress for her Patty/Emily role on Y&R. She has been amazing. She must be very disappointed after working so hard. I don’t understand these award shows at all. Hopefully, she will get one next year. Also, I don’t get Regis Philbin hosting the Emmys. Isn’t he getting a little long in the tooth? That award show is going backwards. Where are the young smart stars? The producers could do better. If Regis is going to sing and with… Read more »

I’m very glad that Peter spoke up in the Stacy issue – what a wonderful and talented actress! Sheer talent pulled of this triple role (Mary Jane, Patty and Emily) and in return Stacy has been snubbed and treated quite badly as well. CBS, you should be ashamed. The Emmy snub is explainable – she is TOO good and those sad decision-makers must feel like big fish in a little pond. Aren’t you proud of yourselves!! I’m disgusted.

Judith Light To Star and Executive Produce New Limited Series Along with Noah Wyle, ‘Shadows in the Vineyard’

Two-time Daytime Emmy and Tony winner, Judith Light (Ex-Karen, One Life to Live) has a major project on the way in which she will not only star, but executive produce.  Light will serve as one of the EP’s along with Noah Wyle (Ex-ER) and the two will be part of the cast of Shadows in the Vineyard, which, according to Deadline will be a limited TV series, with a potential spinoff.

Shadows in the Vineyard is based on journalist Maximillian Potter’s bestselling book Shadows in the Vineyard: The True Story of the Plot to Poison The World’s Greatest Wine.  Production is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021 in Europe.

Written by John Newman (Get Shorty, Proud Mary), Peter Cambor and Potter, Shadows in the Vineyard is set against the backdrop of the gorgeous, rolling countryside of the Côte-d’Or in Burgundy, France. The series is based on the true story of the outlandish 2010 plot-by-poison extortion scheme, a sinister criminal conspiracy that targeted the most sought-after and expensive wine in the world – the legendary Romanée-Conti.

The Landmark Studio Group will market the series, and one of its executives, David Ozer, who will also serve as another EP on the series shared: “Shadows in the Vineyard is rife with rich characters and a compelling narrative that will take viewers on a twisted tale of both a shocking who-done-it mystery and a journey of self-discovery that will resonate with a global audience,  With Maximillian, John, Peter and Sam leading the charge of capturing the heart of the story for the screen, along with the star talents of Judith and Noah and a beautiful location to create the ambience, we have no doubt that this series, which has spinoff potential, will be a hit.”

So, what do you think of Judith’s next project? Comment below.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero On Olivia and Ned’s Kiss During COVID-19: “For Those Asking, That Kiss Was Filmed Before We Broke …”

General Hospital had its triumphant return on Monday with all-new episodes, it’s first since the coronavirus pandemic shut production down.

Since its airing, many viewers took to social media questioning the kiss in the episode between the characters of Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), when protocols had been put in to place by the ABC daytime drama series, and that it going to have to come up with more creative ways to illustrate intimate moments during the editing of upcoming episodes.

Throughout the day, several soap pundits including Carolyn Hinsey let viewers know that some of the scenes in this week’s GH episodes were actually filmed months ago before the production break including the kissing moment.

On Tuesday, long-running series cast member, Lisa LoCicero took to Twitter to clarify that as well to the fans, tweeting” Happy to be back with new shows! To those asking, the kiss was filmed before we broke..”

What was nice was that it seems with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) back on the canvas, ans trouble brewing in the marriage of Ned and Olivia, that LoCicero may have some meaty material coming her way.

So, glad to hear from Lisa about the kiss in the episode? Do you hope she will be featured more in story coming up? Comment below.
