I guess it's wrong to say I think Susan Haskell is overrated and a bit dull as an actress.

I was amused CLB won because the show is so clearly trying to phase him out. And then he's the only person from the show to win. He wasn't the most deserving, but I'm happy for him.

His Emmy belonged to Braeden or Bergman.

I didn't like Braeden's work last year, I didn't buy his grief over Sabrina. I do think Bergman should have gotten something, if Peter Reckell couldn't win.

I think this was just about Emmy bait. I didn't think that episode was great but perhaps on its own voters were impressed.

Jeanne Cooper was roobed. She so much deserved the emmy this year with the Kay / Marge storyline. No offense to Susan Haskell but I was very disappointed.

I don't mind CLB winning. I was praying for not seeing Thorsten Kaye or Anthony Geary with the emmy. Reckell is not that good and I don't think Cosgrove is really a lead so good for CLB. I hope MAB will realize Michael Baldwin is a viable character now.

Her performances as Marge were certainly better than her performances as Kay in recent years, but IMO, they still weren't Emmy worthy.

Susan Flannery was the one who was robbed. :(

I hope MAB will realize Michael Baldwin is a viable character now.

Yes!

Haskell over Morgan says everything about what daytime values in an actress. Actually she didn't even deserve to be nominated along with the likes of Morgan, Flannery or Cooper. (I've never seen West so I can't comment.) Hopefully now that she's got her Emmy she'll go away and take permavictim Marty with her.

I have nothing against Haskell as a actress, minus a few mannerisms from time to time. It's the character I'm not so sure about. I hope RC takes the time intergrate and improve the character of Marty more bc I can see a Marty-shove-down-our-throats-a-thon coming after this Emmy win.

Haskell is a perfect fine actress and if the Emmy were for a Perfectly Fine Lead Actress, I'd have no problem with it but it's for Outstanding Lead Actress. Morgan, Flannery and Cooper fit that description, SH, IMO, does not.

So yes, add me to the Debbi was robbed crowd.

    • I was probably the only one in the target age range at the time who was impressed by that lol.  ATWT seemed to me like GL's older (I know, I know, GL was first by a long shot, but you wouldn't have known it going by the cast members who were on the show by then), stable, more popular sibling, even if that popularity was waning.  As other soaps disappointed me, that sense of consistency started to appeal to me.  Even though I never found ATWT compelling long-term whenever I tuned in in those years, and of course it had as much turmoil behind the scenes as the other network/sponsor-owned shows by then.
    • Lol didn’t they kinda do that when GT’s Phyllis dyed her hair blonde?
    • The Rauch version seemed abruptly truncated in comparison to the full one—like the video and audio weren't actually edited at all for that, they just deleted a whole portion—but with a little money put in upfront to it could have worked.  So many memorable scenes in the early '90s had included that theme as background and/or picked up the next day and segued into that opening...even the brief hint of that music evokes memories for me.  Not to mention, they would have saved money in the long run without having to update cast photos or keep paying for new openings. I doubt you could prove a connection with ratings, but I actually think it's interesting that Y&R has remained the highest rated for so long and DAYS is (was?) one of the last soaps, while both stuck with their original theme songs.  And each theme became part of broader pop culture in some unexpected ways over the years: Mary J Blige, Close Encounters, etc.  Who's to say that kind of free publicity didn't help keep those shows on casual viewers' minds at some point?  But it's also a case of the chicken and the egg - a mainstream entertainment project would probably not give that kind of shout-out to a soap or its theme music if both weren't so familiar to people.
    • Yes to all of this. I mean I wouldn’t have mind seeing Nate find success and media attention with his Ask MD website or whatever but the switch to a media executive was the worst. 
    • Honestly, as long as they don't do the shaky cam stuff, I've been thinking it's bad enough now to lean into the Peapack model. Film at a real courthouse on the weekend instead of making a set, a real park instead of Chancellor park....
