Days of our Lives James Scott (EJ DiMera) chatted with Michael Fairman on the red carpet at the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. James reveals his thoughts on the recent departure of Renee Jones as his on-screen sister, Lexie Carver, the fact that the reclusive star has joined Twitter, and his thoughts on DAYS 15 Emmy nominations including the one for Outstanding Drama Series which earned its nod for the EJ/Sami grief-sex episode!

    Thanks for the interview Michael!! Really enjoyed it of course, as I do all of your interviews and James’ interviews as well! I will definitely miss Ejexie’s scenes. Loved that Lexie was not only Ej’s sister, but his best friend. I miss Renee Jones as well, but wish her the best of luck!! Looking forward to more of your interviews Michael! Thanks

    James Scott is such a great actor. He is very deserving of an Emmy. This year he should have been nominated for the silent scream scene when Sami came into the rumpus room. Last time he should have won because of the way he portrayed EJ’s reaction to Sami calling off their wedding and leaving with the children. I think it was his best work. The Academy was wrong in making a decision that actor has to interact with another cast member in a scene to win an Emmy. James Scott did a stellar performance without the need of anyone but the viewers watching. Tom Hanks did an entire movie mostly by talking a basketball and was nominated for a third Oscar. He don’t win but three nominated three times in a role and winning twice is a great achievement. James Scott definately should have gotten at least one win. I hope he will not be discouraged and will be able to submit something from the next season. It is not a secret that Days hasn’t had well written storylines lately. It proves James Scott is an even better actor because he has taken some poorly written material and spun it into gold. I am not the only one who feels this way. Mr. Scott has an extremely large fanbase. The number of people who signed up to follow him on twitter during a couple of hours prove it. I personally think the people who determine the Emmy winners made a mistake by not paying homage to James Scott with at least one award.

    Thanks Michael! Love the interview with James. I’m surprised he’s on twitter, but it sounds like he has a lot coming up that he’s wants to share with his fans and that’s a good outlet for that. Looking forward to your other interviews.

    Thanks. James should be very happy with the Emmy win for writing. James, Ari Zucker, Matt, Melissa and the other actors in the ‘Snowstorm’ episode brought the writers vision to life. Imo all the actors share in this win for giving the words the emotional impact on the screen that they deserve.

    i disagree i pretty found this episode flat and boring as hell except for the Matt scenes, i don’t get why it won some emmy instead of the episode of Johnny’s missing, these daytime emmys seem now to be a big fat joke anyway.

    Well that was the episode that won the Emmy. I preferred that over shock value stunts such as grief sex. It may have been interesting to fans of Ej/Sami, but there was a lot like myself that didn’t care for it.

    Julie replied

    Euh no it has nothing with Ej/Sami, it has everything with being an episode with lot’s of heavy drama, scenes well acted and well written and lot’s of history and interactions between important characters therefore i stand by what i said; these emmys are quite a joke and the Johnny’s missing stuff was a FARE BETTER episode than the episode when Maggie and her egg baby drama..boring stuff was featured.

    Julie replied

    And to me it was not ‘shock value’ at all but daring, edgy and deep storytelling, the only flat factor was Johnny being found under a table, that was ridiculous but before that it was great soap opera unlike this boring and cheesy snowstorm stuff, so we can agree to disagree.

    Not sure it is a great idea to get twitter with some very nutty haters all over the net..but i guess James Scott can get over it and have a thick skin..after all he is an actor..

    Julie I agree do not do twitter or facebook you are putting yourself at risk now days people are just nuts I feel safe posting a thought now and then on Mr. Fairman’s blog but if a fellow poster get’s upset I do not respond. My Mom if she was alive would call it in poor taste to treat people you don’t know badly. Just like these comments on Cruise & Holmes tacky and really I don’t care about their personal lives, I am referring to Daytime Confidential why is this a news item for Daytime soaps?
