  1. They co-presented the lifetime achievement Emmys to Mary Stuart, Charita Bauer and Larry Haines in 1985 posted in this thread. Already by 1985 they were recognized as the titans of the industry.
  2. Rare to find a scene this old on YouTube.
  3. Deeply unfortunate that it isn't on YouTube but the climax of the Jill/Kay feud of ownership of the Chancellor mansion in 1998 included one of the best confrontations ever on daytime. Jill to Kay: "By the time I came into their lives - she was a monster, he couldn't stand to be in the same room as her. She was a fall down drunk and she reeked of booze and her tongue would rip your head off. I gave that man something he'd never had before. Love. And sex. Good healthy SEX with a SOBER, sweet smelling woman and it drove her SO MAD with jealously that she KILLED HIM! DID YOU KNOW THAT? Did you know that she killed Phillip by driving him off a cliff while she was drunk!!!! Come on Katherine, tell you're guests about your glorious times in this house with Phillip!"
  4. Yes, Julia was so good during this period. Its a kind of story repeated so often on daytime - but Barr and Canary made it something more because of how committed they were to those scenes. Laura's death a year prior made the storyline even more tragic. I'd say that's one of the best scenes in daytime history. It's just perfect. The writing, the lighting, the set, the acting, the wind in their hair, the finger pointing and the way Alexander waves her hand at 7:20. Plus, to see Monica being a bitch is such a treat.
  5. Ross rips into Dinah (1:45) after learning Dinah faked her own kidnapping. I always felt like GL actors really relished yelling at Wendy Moniz's Dinah, who was rather hapless in the role.
  6. When GL literally became "The Reva Lewis Show."
  7. Brooke learns the truth about Adam and Dixie.
  8. Mark's cocaine addiction and subsequent intervention was one of AMC's most notable stories and Noone's Ellen reading Mark the riot act was one of the show's greatest acting performances. So satisfying because Ellen had been such a goody two shoes for so long. It got a lot of attention in the soap press at the time. And then two years later Ellen disappeared and I can't ever recall her being mentioned again.
  9. Kathleen Noone's Emmy win is at 1 hour 36 minutes. (I don't think it had ever been up on youtube). She specifically thanks Agnes Nixon for coming "back to the show" to write this story.
  10. Martha Byrne was nominated in that category for almost a decade. She must've had the longest run as an "Ingenue" in daytime history.
  11. Ellen Wheeler's win at 13:30 in that clip. Thank you @Forever8 That was mighty stiff competition in that category - Debbie Morgan, Martha Byrne, Robin Wright, and Jane Krakowsk. Perhaps the best line-up ever in the Younger Actress/Ingenue category. Compare those names to the actresses that made up the category in the late '00s or in the 2010s. Wheeler was so beautiful but also appeared really awkward and shy.
  12. Wasn't Hollywood Heights her chance to create her own show or at least be in charge of one at the beginning? I never watched it so I can't really judge how that turned out.
  13. Yes, the next day's scenes are maybe even better if less iconic and well known than the country club take down. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7M4PHwZbvs
  14. Wow I'd never seen Dorothy Lyman's win before. Too bad the following year's ceremony wasn't televised. Thank you for linking to that.
  15. I wonder about that too. That year was a transition period of the show. So many characters were written out between 1989-90. 1989 was also the first time AMC was written by someone other than Nixon or one of her protegees. Margaret DePriest appeared to arrive to help clean up the show and then she disappeared after 6 months or so. The show up to that point had around 8 major stories rolling along of various quality at the same time. The Eric Kane clown story was a major miss that year too and David/Melanie was just boring. The "who fathered Dixie's baby?" on the other hand, was one of the greatest stories in the history of the show. Barr, McClain and Canary all won Emmys and submitted the same tape. I don't think that was ever done again.
