The Daytime Emmys for soaps has become a joke.  They have to announce who gets nominated for Best Drama?  There's only 4 left - it will be all 4 every year.   And people breaking records makes me sad - most of these people wouldn't be anywhere near an emmy podium if there were still 8 or 9 shows on with quality actors and actresses that are no longer working. 

 

Agreed. When I see someone like Heather Tom (who I feel has been over-hyped all these years as B&B's Katie) tying with the grande dame Erika Slezak, the whole thing is indeed silly now. 

 

Get rid of Younger Leading Actor & Actress. I've thought that for nearly a decade. It was created around 1985 to keep a child actor like Kimberly McCullough or the kid playing Benji DiMera on DAYS from running in the same category as an Erika Slezak, La Lucci, or Liz Hubbard. 

 

IMO, the Daytime Emmys started feeling completely worthless around the time that the main 3 networks stopped airing them (2009, on the CW). The following two years on CBS were those weird glorified infomercials for Las Vegas when the ceremony was held there. And of course, post 2012, there's only 4 shows left. Participation nomination indeed, especially for Best Show.

Wasn't there a controversy at the 1984 Daytime Emmys when Judi Evans won Supporting Actress and she wasn't even 20 years old at time. I think her win is the reason why the younger categories were added the following year but there was no age limit until 1989 I think when it was set to 21 and then in 1991 the age limit became 25.

Yes. I remember reading an interview with Judi years ago that her some of her older GL co-stars were resentful of her victory. She had only been on the scene for about a year, while others had been on for years.

Was there ever any doubt?

Why did they bother trumping up such a non-event? Sheryl and Mario host every year at this point. I guess the Emmys team had to have “something” to show their bosses they were earning their keep.

True! Isn't this the third consecutive year with them as co-hosts?

Seems like so much more, but yeah. And Sheryl will trot out that same old tired “lascivious fat black woman” shtick that’s always so cringeworthy.

It's surprising that they are still even doing the awards since daytime is so limited now. Four soaps is too low of a number to even be competitive and all the shows are just getting nominations for existing which is pathetic. The fact that all of Days of Our Lives' wins have been post cancellation of the other soaps is sort of embarrassing. It is sad because I remember how prestigious the Daytime Emmys were despite daytime never being as respected as primetime. Now it's just like a chamber of commerce banquet or something.

    • Have been scrolling through a site with random old Australian TV listings and discovered that ATWT aired in primetime in Sydney on Ch 7 in 1974! It's from Thursday Nov 28th at 8.30pm, This is the blurb... Carol returns home and asks Tom to give up Natalie Bannon's case. Grant and Joyce have a showdown and Grant decides not to divorce her until she has fully recovered. So it seems not to far behind the US storylines. Quite frankly I'm surprised that Oz execs would take to a daytime soap that had been running for nearly 20 years and expect viewers to be interested. Meanwhile the same channel was airing DOOL, Y&R and GH during the day. The Melbourne listings for the same evening do not have ATWT in the schedule, in fact the entire schedule was different. So it looks like ATWT was Sydney only exclusive. Wonder if it was nightly and how long it lasted?
    • Ahem, did we know that Tanner Novlan (Dr. Finn Without Personality) is married to actress Kayla Ewell who starred on B&B from 2004-2005 as Caitlin Ramirez (daughter of Sydney Penny and Lorenzo Lamas) who was Thomas' first teen love!?   We now go back to your regular scheduled programming in session...
    • I love me some Lauren but had to laugh at her lecturing Sally and Summer on women treating women well. Send them an ice cream sundae why don’t you Lauren?
