155 June 23rd, 2014 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Announced! Y&R Wins Drama Series, Billy Miller and Eileen Davidson Take Home Top Acting Prizes!

In ceremonies held on Sunday night, it turned out to be a big night for CBS and its number one soap opera, The Young and the Restless. 

The series was named Outstanding Drama Series,  Outstanding Writing Team for a Drama Series, as well as received the nod for Outstanding Special Class Special for its Jeanne Cooper Tribute at NATAS’ 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.  Y&R received six Emmys during the streaming event held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California,  the most of any show!

In the acting categories, Billy Miller received the perfect button on his career with The Young and the Restless wining his first ever Lead Actor in a Drama Series award for his riveting portrayal of Billy Abbott.  Miller had won two Daytime Emmys previously in the Supporting Category.  The actor decided to leave Y&R last December.  And after over two decades in daytime soaps, Eileen Davidson received her first ever Emmy win as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her performance as Kristen DiMera on Days of our Lives.  Eileen received a standing ovation from the crowd in attendance!

The 41st Annual Daytime Emmys first live stream broadcast kicked-off with the announcement of the Supporting Acting and Actress category.

The first winner of the night was Days of our Lives Eric Martsolf who took home his first Emmy for his portrayal of a drug addicted Brady Black!   Next, The Young and the Restless Amelia Heinle won her first Emmy for her stirring performance of Victoria Newman Abbott.  Heinle paid tribute to her sister during her acceptance speech.

In the Younger Acting category, Chandler Massey had a three-peat for his performance of Will Horton on Days of our Lives.  Massey left the NBC soap opera back in November of last year after being fired from the show.   And Hunter King took her first Emmy for Younger Actress in a Drama Series for her work as Summer Newman on The Young and the Restless.

Lastly,  it was Prospect Park’s and TOLN’s One Life to Live’s that took home the gold for Outstanding Directing Team Drama Series , and Crystal Chappell and company received accolades for Outstanding New Approaches Drama Series! We will have full report on the live-stream ceremonies and more coming up!

So, what did you think of Y&R winning Drama Series?  Billy and Eileen winning Lead Actor and Actress?   Eric and Amelia winning Supporting Actor and Actress?  Chandler and Hunter winning Younger Actor and Actress? OLTL winning Directing Team? Let us know!

    I can’t believe that Y&R received any awards..
    Last year to this, was terribly long drawn out and boring- FF mostly..
    They rode the wing of a dead child to get some gold..
    I also do not feel that Amelia and Hunter are great actresses there are far better in the soaps..

    But- it is what it is..
    It all comes down the opinions of a few, not the majority of the fans who had no say in the matter ..
    anyways- I did not watch lol .. and I see I missed not a lot of nothing :)

    Congrats to all the winners, deserving or not, well done !!!!

    how can Y&R with a 365 day production feature just one memorable story line?

    everything else about Genoa City is forgettable

    now that the Dehila story is history… and without MM, BM, MS, JC, EH… whats left

    I so agree with you. There were more deserving actions who did outstanding work. Frankly I am so sick of her on Y&R I am about ready to drop it from my viewing schedule.

    I am glad Hunter King won. I think she really knocked it out of the park when she was told that Jack and not Nick was her father. I am to the point I don’t like half of the characters on Y&R anymore. That and the longgggg dragged out storylines are getting old.

    Wow you are so full of yourself, Hunter King and Amelia won the emmys, well deserved. I bet you cant act at all. Lol. who pissed you off today? These ladies can act, you are just a drama queen, who whines and cant get her way. Yes we all have opinions, but saying Hunter and Amelia are horrible actresses, is plain wrong. Happy. they won, including Eileen Davidson.

    I do believe that if you can tear up on queue… cry me a river… on queue… then you’ve got some attention

    however… it’s a 365 day production… and it’s telling… how much you pull in… audience feast or famine….

    Hunter King… is not relatable… theres no insight to noteworthy… who cares that she’s not jacks daughter and it’s back to Nicholas… or either or… blech

    i’ll soapbox and stand firm…. Heather Tom is the same… indifferent

    Could not believe The Young & Restless won these awards except for Billy Miller. The show is almost unwatchable. General Hospital is by far the best soap on TV. They were simply robbed. The Daytime Emmy’ s are a joke.

    I was so excited to see the Emmy’s yesterday on the internet. Was looking forward to seeing Billy Miller win. I saw the red carpet program and thought the four gals that did the interviews were not that good. Some comments they made to the women about their breast was way out of line. Hope they get better interviewers next time. Also was very disappointed in Kathy Griffin and her filthy mouth. And the gal from Y&R that spoke as they won best drama also had a filthy mouth. They both should be ashamed of themselves am sure they parents were embarrassed. Hope they will have this on again next year ONLY show some respect for they viewers who don’t want to hear the kind of talk we heard last night. If it does you will loose viewers. Maybe that is the way those people talk all the time and don’t give any thought to others who don’t want to hear it.

    That was really embarrassing. It’s awesome that Chandler Massey Rose above that disgusting error. His successor really does suck and it’s been months and he’s not gotten any better. I’d rather see Will and Sonny get written out at this point because the new Will is awful and Will and Sonny have no real story prospects. I think this is partly due to the recast. DAYS just will not admit it screwed up but at the same time they can’t write for someone who can’t deliver the goods so off to the backburner the gays go.

    Glad Chandler got the last laugh.

    Oh my. Y&R won for best drama, best writing. No way. Of the three soaps I watch (Y&R, Days, B&B), Y&R would be my last choice for these awards.

    I agree with winners Billy Miller, Eric Martsolf, Eileen, and Chandler. Would not have chosen Hunter to win. Amelia is good. Congrats for her. Forget who the others nominated with her were.

    Days has got to be happy for winning Best Actress, Younger Actor (still miss Chandler), and Supporting Actor. Way to go.

    B&B didn’t win anything, looks like. :-( Maybe next year.

    I’m just afraid with these wins, Y&R will think they’re great as is when that isn’t true.

    Congratulations to the winners.

    hey Jake NJ, I am totally thrilled for Eileen and Eric too. Eileen is favorite of mine. I was so pleased that they both won. Even though I favor GH, I felt that DAYS should have won for best soap, that soap is pretty consistent. As for Bryan, I was surprised that he was nominated only because for me last year, he was very raw and hadn’t had a handle on Morgan, not until he got paired up with Ava, did I see him evolve. Bryan’s scenes with Maurice and Maura has only made his acting much richer. I didn’t think it was Bryan’s year to win, though he has done some exceptional work, he’s now in a place as an actor where he’s really growing, he’ll definitely be nominated next year…he’s one to watch. And, I too am looking forward to Billy Miller coming to GH, I hope the rumors will be officially confirmed soon. In closing, I don’t know what GH did or didn’t do to piss off the academy, the omission of nominations for Maura West, Tyler Christopher and Kelly Thiebaud was a complete shocker. Congrats to the nominations for OLTL, and I had hoped Younger Actress would have been awarded to the versatile Kelley Missal. Next year, I expect GH to kick some soap opera butt!

    The Academy has obviously got a personal grudge against General Hospital. When they nominate a cancelled soap OLTL over the best soap on TV something is really wrong and I watch DAYS & Y&R. They don’t hold a candle to General Hospital.

    Thank you Fanny for saying what so many of us are thinking. GH had some excellent storylines this year and some great acting. Don’t understand why they were treated so badly. I only watch GH and Y&R. If I had to give one up it would be Y&R. There are so few characters that I like on that show these days. Wish they would bring back Marie A Bell. At least the characters were likeable and she did not draw out the storylines like the current IIC.

    Reply

    Mary SF replied

    Not sure what is behind it, but some of it has to do with perception. If you look at films, some comedies are very popular and well written, but they will never win an Oscar. GH might have audience appeal because it is entertaining, but those in the business might not translate entertain value for artistic value. GH does do a lot of camp stories, mobsters, vampires, nurse’s balls, which are fun to watch and well written, but just not the kind of writing that wins industry awards usually. But I do think this year, there was a deliberate snub for GH for reasons insiders know better than we do.

Yes, the show has had it’s low points, but it’s also done quite a bit right and has deservedly been given much of the credit for revitatlizing the genre. TOLN? Really?

    I was happy for all the winners AND the nominees. I was a bit sad that the actors I wanted to win didn’t, but then I got to thinking…With only four soaps left on network TV, the field of extremely talented actors is becoming crowded. It’s not like it used to be when there were twelve and fourteen soaps on the air and the talent was all spread out. With so many very talented actors out of work, shows have a greater ability to cast the most talented, if the money is there or the talent is willing to take what might be given to a lesser known/able talent. Our soaps are an embarrassment of wonderful actors and we, the audience, are the beneficiaries. We have some actors who definitely need to grow, but by and large, each show has wonderful actors. I think it all boils down to anyone who is singled out is lucky to be called the best of the crème a la crème in daytime. Soaps rock!

    At this point, dont even bother if its not going to air on television, OR how about rotating it around the three networks and airing it in daytime. CBS had no problems advertising how many emmys they were up for but couldnt air the actual awards show?!?!?!

    Lets face it too, if Y&R wins best show and best writing these awards are not based on merit. I cant complain about the acting awards, especially Amelia Heinle who I think has been underrated for years.

    The streaming wasn’t the issue for me. It was the low class red carpet hosts and excessive swearing that bothered me. There are many qualified individuals out there who truly love this genre and would willingly and professionally take on those hosting roles and write appropriately for a prompter. So it may not air on network television again, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be classy. I hope TPTB at NATAS seek out those who really respect daytime for next year’s event.

    Those “ladies” doing the red carpet were disgusting not just in their behavior and language, but the fact that they clearly knew NOTHING about the shows or the cast! What an insult to the viewers, but also to the industry as a whole. I guess NATAS got the “buzz” they wanted because everyone is talking. Nasty and pathetic IMO.

    The Daytime Emmys have turned into a colossal joke! The rumors that something fishy is going on behind the scenes with this nomination and winning process seems evident to me. I am, of course, speaking of the HUGE slap in the face to “General Hospital”. I think it is the most entertaining, edge of your seat, incredibly acted soap on TV. I have nothing against the other 3 shows remaining, but when GH was omitted from the Best Show, Directing, AND Writing categories, as well as Finola Hughes for Best Actress, etc as a few examples, there is something wrong. GH should have been in Best Show as a 5th nominee or in place of the online OLTL. Finola or another GH actress should have been a 5th Best Actress nominee. Leaving it at only 4 when there’s so many other awesome actresses to nominate is stupid. The procedure sucks! The pre-noms were there, but the nominations were not, and then GH is completely shut out of any wins at all! Are you kidding me??!! For those not happy with the storylines lately, you’re also entitled to your opinion, but I don’t see it. I think it had an amazing year, and I am not alone in this as I’ve seen on many social media sites. The process needs a major overhaul with very fair, non-biased people handling things behind the scenes. I did not watch this year because after the nominations came out with a slap in the face to GH, I was suspicious and had a feeling the same thing would happen at the ceremony, and sure enough… I was right!! I just looked at the winners afterwards. Disgusting in my opinion!!

    Over the years, sadly soaps have always been viewed as a second class citizen, and last night was a prime example of just that. Kathy Griffen was simply embarrassing. The use of foul language at an Emmy event was just a blatant diss. These are talented hard working individuals who deserve the same fanfare as every other award show, but instead of hiring a highly respected host ..they hire KG? Absolutely disgraceful!

    I feel sorry for these actors, who work harder than any other genre in entertainment….
    its time the industry takes a good look at the way in which they choose to “HONOR” these daytime actors…I was embarrassed for them!

    Eileen Davidson is magnificent…so deserving of her award….

    One ore thing, it is so disappointing that this event is not televised. Networks run shows like that ridiculous Joan Rivers show Fashion Police with her foul rude obnoxious mouth, but The Daytime Emmys are no televised? I guess we should be grateful that Joan was not asked to host…lets not give them any ideas shall we?

    Thumbs down !

    I think the inferior complex daytime has is starting affect those within the industry itself. It is hard to respect a genre that doesn’t respect itself. If they valued their work perhaps they would have put on a more dignified awards show– yes it wasn’t on network therefore not subjected to standards and practices, but if they really thought well of themselves would they have allowed so many classless people run the show? For a show that had the potential to reach new audiences via the web from other countries I don’t think the show they steamed left a very good impression of America or the daytime shows being honored.

    Next year they should have it here in Canada, if they could a Canadian network to host it, I bet it can be done cheap and classy– we’re used to working on low budgets here and we are very polite— LOL.

    And as much as we all hate commercials in reality those commercial breaks give award shows a schedule to follow and time to iron out any kinks in show before coming back live– so lets hope they do find a network home next year that will honor them properly and keep everyone is line, not just for the viewers but those on stage who need someone to stop them making a fool of themselves.

    hey NATAS why not give Canada a shot at it– we can’t do it worse

    The biggest rob in my opinion was the GH was not nominated as either Outstanding Drama or Outstanding Writing… What the hell? GH has been excellent since Frank and Ron took over, and this past year Y&R has been extremely slow and boring. Yes, the Delia story was great in terms of acting, but writing? The death of a child on a soap is not worthy of “outstanding writing” IMO and I don’t think Y&R should necessarily be proud of it. This Emmy win has probably solidified JFP’s job, though, because I doubt CBS and Sony are going to fire the lady that just earned Y&R another Outstanding Drama Series trophy.

    In terms of acting awards, Eileen and Billy’s wins were spot on (though I do think Jason Thompson should win next year). Eric’s win was fine, though I would have preferred a tie and Bradford Anderson to win as well. Amelia Heinle is a good actress, but Elizabeth Hendrickson’s scenes were much better, so I think EH should have won. Happy for Hunter King, but Kelley Missal did a great job too. The biggest joke for me was younger actor… Chandler Massey again?! I really thought Bryan Craig and Chad Duell did better and deserved it more than he did.

    I was so excited for the daytime Emmy’s. I loved that it was going to be streamed online for the first time. It really shows the change that is upon us with streaming live tv online & for free. I think there could have been a bit more advertisement as I forgot that it was even on until I logged into http://michaelfairmansoaps.com

    The red carpet hosts & Kathy Griffin –

    The 4 red carpet hosts where embarrassing. They clearly did not do any homework or bring any type of etic to the show. Some of what they did was for shock value but it was unneeded for this type of show. The fans would rather get real interviews then asking dumb questions and making the guest feel ashamed to even have to answer. But most of what they did was silly and a waste of our time. It was not funny it was sad. It made the show seem like a joke and it was a slap in the face to the fans who still support and tune in everyday.

    Kathy Griffin is one of my favorite ladies. I love her realness and truthfulness and no bs type of comedy. But was she really a host or just a stand in to bring some ratings? She had one outfit the whole night which was a bit of a letdown. She only was on stage for minutes. I expected to see her in between awards, making us laugh and getting to see her work her chops on daytime. But sadly we got an opening act and then the odd pop up. Again it was a waste of what could have given the show the some comedy which it clearly needed.

    The show itself –

    I was kind of board & felt like I could have not have watched it and been ok with that. I expected more. This was a chance to really shine and bring the daytime Emmy’s into the next generation. They failed by the way the show flowed. I liked that it went by quicker than past years. But I felt left wanting more. Maybe a break in between awards with a musical act or again Kathy doing something fun. Clearly there were some glitches and parts that showed that they were in over there head and had no control of the show. But that was expected with this being the first online show. But I am hopeful that next year they were fix the missteps.

    Overall I am just thankful that we have the daytime Emmy’s. I know last year could have been our last and for that I am thankful. There was also some very good moments that I am glad I got to see. Billy Miller was one of my favorite’s wins of the night. One life to live was my favorite. But no GH wins or being included in most of the big category’s was a bit shocking and seems on purpose and not just an over sight. GH has rocked it this year and had some amazing storylines. The best writing I have seen in years and the acting on all fronts has kicked it into high gear. They deserved to be at the very least nominated for best drama.

    That is my review hoping next year will be better but still thankful we have an award show to recognize our wonderful daytime actors.

    On a side note…wtf was up with Kelly? She had to be drunk? It was not funny it just looked messy and I felt bad for her co-stars who clearly were not wanting to be up on that stage with her!

    Also…I did not understand why they included night time entertainment shows? They should be in the prime time show not the daytime show.

    The red carpet was disastrous. Those tactless females had no clue who they were speaking to and their “valley girl” act was annoying as hell. Kathy Griffin emceed ok, but she still seems to mustakenly believe vulgarity is humorous. It’s not….and neither was she. Sharon Osbourne proved once again she’s a pig. Little wonder her children were a mess. And shame on Sally Jessy Raphael lookalike Jill Farren Phelps for referring to her daughter as “my f***ing daughter.”. But the show moved along, much more speedily than most award shows and was a major improvement from the couch comedy of last year. Yes, I didnt feel some of the wins were deserved but it is what it is.

    I mentioned the backstage problems which contributed to the win for Hunter King…my comment was not allowed. I’ll try it again:

    MM allegedly grabbed Hunter King’s breasts, which resulted in Hunter King grabbing the gold!

    I don’t understand why that comment was not allowed. I did not accuse MM, I said allegedly. I did not say HK made it up for publicity…People can draw their own conclusions. What I tried to convey is…That alleged incident made headlines! It did, in fact, create buzz for HK and JFP for that matter. I’m sure some voters thought…that poor girl put up with a lot and then stood her ground.

    When her name was called and she went on stage to receive her emmy, I yelled BS when she stated she was not expecting to win! Really? Who doesn’t expect to win after constantly being talked about, especially when their viewed as being “brave”?

    Nikki replied

    Patrick and 4ever DAYS, I agree with you both. I was upset that HK won, which, as you said, more than likely had to do with publicity, because it sure as hell wasn’t talent. Whether the TMZ story that got her name out there is true or not, the point is it got her name out there. It made her, as you said 4ever, look “brave” and like a victim who “deserved” for something good to happen to her. If it happened and she truly felt violated, that’s very sad and my heart goes out to her, but that’s not what this award is SUPPOSED to be for. It’s supposed to be for TALENT, which would have been most of her competitors, not her.

  44. Mary SF says:

    Actually I was a bit surprise by some of the winners, based on the reels I saw Chandler’s reel wasn’t as strong as Byran Craig’s– methinks there was a deliberate movement to shut out any GH cast member from winning.

    And I don’t think Billy Miller’s reel was as good as Peter Bergman’s, so he must have gotten it for his body of work, even though it is supposed to be judged on the reels.

    Heather Tom had the better reel, but ED was a close second– Ms Tom might of have been a victim of too many previous wins– they just couldn’t bring themselves to do it again.

    In Supporting I think any of the ladies from Y&R could have won it— so no big shock there. I guess for me the biggest shock was Eric’s win in supporting actor. I think there were so many entries about father’s losing children, it would have been difficult to pick which was performance was better, so I think they took the diplomatic route and chose the only reel not about a grieving father, which was Eric’s drug addicted rant.

    As for Y&R win for series and writing I am not surprised. JFP isn’t stupid she knows what stories win Emmy awards and that is why little DeeDee was sacrifice for this very purpose. It is the only reason they killed that character off was to have a great Emmy reel. JFP got what she wanted— and now I shudder to think of who she will have to kill this year in order to get the award again next year.

    Chandler’s submission was clever and well done so it’s a shame it wasn’t shown. Plus that reel that was actually shown was a painful reminder that Chandler should’ve played out the wedding and he could’ve too had Greg Meng not fired him and replaced Chandler with one of the worst recasts in daytime history.

    Chandler’s reel is only about 3 or so minutes and in that time frame, he showcased a performance where the acting was layered, nuanced and devoid of irritating histrionics unlike his competitors especially those kids from GH. Those GH boys were hysterical drama queens in their reels.

    Good on you, Chandler!!!

    I was pretty pleased with who won in the actor categories. I have to say I WAS surprised at Martsolft’s win. Back when I still watched Y&R I was very moved by Amelie Heinle’s performance during the Deliah story.

    Thrilled about OLTL’s win. Showed there was some respect for what they tried to do.

    Choked when Y&R won writing & drama. I haven’t watched in 6 months because the writing had gotten so bad. Will say they deserved the win for Jeanne Cooper tribute. Probably the last thing they did well.

    I wasn’t shocked or bothered by Kathy Griffen…anyone who has ever seen her knows what to expect. And, while I am no pure mouth I thought Sharon Osborne’s language was low class…pretty much as I generally feel about her anyway.

    The two women in the social media room were ok…not great but ok. However, the two dingbats on the red carpet were a joke. They either had no idea who they were interviewing, if they were nominated and the biggest eyeroll moment was when they talked to Maura West & Tyler Christopher and thought they were a couple and getting married. You could see this look on West’s face that she just thought they were ridiculous. And, could they have made more comments about the women’s breasts? It was embarrassing for all involved.

    Did like that the show moved along swiftly without commercials.

    It was a real blooper when they showed Guy Wilson in a clip while naming Chandler Massey as a nominee.

    All in all….beat the pants off the shows HLN produced.

    I know the “net award show” thing is new territory, but that Red Carpet was disgraceful, the interviewers were horrendous, an article in the Washington Post notes this today, how disrespectful they were to the classy actors. Kathy Griffen’s monologue was recycled from her stand-up, I’m guilty of watching too much Bravo! I guess Mrs. Osbourne was the “mature?” one who could show the “f” word is the “new vibe,” but this is where I miss Erica Slezak’s presence…and I used to think she was stuffy. And lastly, to trash Susan Lucci, next year, Kathy Griffen should be banned altogether. Thank God all the winners have professional yes,class, and bless them all.

    I didn’t watch the ceremony this year because I believed many of the nominees were a joke and I also am not a fan of watching shows online.

    When I saw the winners list, I was happy with my decision not to watch.

    Let me first start by saying, I’m very happy that Billy Miller and Eileen Davidson won. Very deserved on both their parts. I was also happy for Eric because, while I was rooting for Bradford Anderson who did some of his best work ever in 2013 and in his reel, I am also a fan of Eric’s and believe he’s come a long way since his Passions days.

    However, Ameila Heinle? Are you kidding? Over Jane Elliot, Elizabeth Hendrickson, and Melissa Claire Egan? Is she a bad actress? No. But was she stronger than the others? Absolutely not. I shouldn’t be surprised because the Supporting Actress category is usually a disaster (remember when Nancy Lee Grahn won over Rebecca Herbst’s outstanding work with Jake’s death?), but it’s still shocking. Jane Elliot had the strongest reel, in my opinion, displaying controlled range and delivering beautifully written dialogue. She was robbed.

    Chandler Massey, who I was a big fan of, I’m sorry, but he did not have the strongest reel this year. It’s getting to the point where all of these “three peats” that keep happening just look lazy on the voters’ part. It’s like “Let’s just give it to the kid that won last year instead of who had the best work.”

    Hunter King winning over Kelley Missal was a travesty. I’m sorry, I have nothing personal against Ms. King, I’m sure she’s a lovely girl, but she is NOT a good actress. It’s painful to watch her try and squeeze out tears while looking constipated and her voice is grating. Most of her work consists of stronger actors like Michelle Stafford, Peter Bergman, or Joshua Morrow doing the heavy lifting while she sniffles. Hell, even Linsey Godfrey’s reel was more deserving and hers’ was for COMEDY.

    Y&R winning is, frankly, disgusting. Ever since Jill Farren Phelps and her hack writers jumped on board, the show went from bad to rock bottom. But, now they have that “all important” Emmy, so despite the dwindling ratings and losing their spot in the key demos, CBS will keep them on board.

    That’s what I assumed happened with Chandler Massey and Hunter King.

    The Y&R wins for Best Writing and Best Show prove that the voting system needs some tweaking. The serialized format invalidates voting based on one or two episodes because any show can crank out a couple of good entries not representative of the whole in a given year.

    Other than the death of Delia, can anybody name three other memorable Y&R storylines from last year…?

    Reply

    Mary SF replied

    But that was the point of Delia’s death– to win them an Emmy– the Emmy panels don’t watch the show day in and day out, they can only judge the reel they are given, and what JFP gave them was exactly what she knew would get her the gold, which is why they killed that character off in the first place. JFP is many things, but stupid isn’t one of them, so knows how to package the tiny gems they did produce in a year and market they in a great reel—- Emmy wins have nothing to do with how good a show is, just how good the reel is.

    While I didn’t watch the online show, I’ve heard an awful lot about it, especially the horrible red carpet “hosts” (they were called the “red carpet hos” on one soap web site!) and their antics, including talking about raping one male soap star they were interviewing and saying something derogatory in regard to “black people?” I’m not clear on that one, but so far, it’s been nothing BUT bad! Not to mention they didn’t know a THING about any of the soaps or the stars! Someone kept calling Heather Tom “Jane.” Seriously? Jane? After all the years that woman’s been in television? Please…

    As for the show itself, I’ve heard that there was a lot of complaints (mainly from fans and viewers, as well as some stars) about the cursing that Kathy Griffin did, and that when she interrupted Jill Farren Phelps with a curse-laden “wrap it up and get off the stage” kind of suggestion when Phelps was accepting the final award of the night, Phelps was thrown by Griffin’s use of the f-word in whatever she had said to Phelps and Phelps replied that she wanted to thank her f-ing daughter, which she realized afterward she had done during her post-Emmy win interview (and I believe apologized for doing).

    If I was flustered about a win, didn’t have a speech prepared and then, when doing an impromptu speech onstage, I, too, would probably be thrown by a curse-riddled, big-mouthed broad telling me “Oh Jesus Christ. Oh for God’s sake with your pride of ownership. Wrap it up, lady! Wrap it up. I get it. You’re young and you’re restless. You won! If you name your f—ing dog, I swear to God…,” speech and I might slip with an f-bomb myself.

    BTW, the above IS exactly what was said to Phelps by Griffen when told to “wrap it up” in the middle of her speech. No one knows why Griffin did it; she just did.

It was nice to see JFP get smacked around like she smacks fans around by ruining our shows. Y&R, and her, did not deserve that award, so why does she deserve to yammer on and on?

    As for the awards, I disagree with Massey, Y&R’s Best show, Miller winning.

    Everyone else deserved their award in my opinion..I was especially clapping when OLTL won for Best Directing.

    It sucks that GH got snubbed in the nominations or awards..I think it was penalized because of Prospect Park lawsuit against ABC..Jason Thompson WILL get his Emmy soon, just like Amelia Heinle did, who has been overlooked for many years..Suprise she won in this tough category, but very happy for her!!

    i wanted Amelia Heinle to win… and had not watched the emmy reels

    after watching… I gave due process that Elizabeth Hendrickson should win

    Jane Elliott.. is preserved… with Anthony Geary… out of the closet and in to the mix

    I laud Jane and Anthony… but that’s it… to support this genre with newbies and relative newcomers… step aside… listen Heather Tom… honestly.. you were embarrassing

    ps: I knew DAYS wasn’t going to win best serial… when Y&R won “creative” best writing…

    balk

    soap box…. 1 story does not make a show…

    would fan vote for just best serial… mean more

    I enjoyed watching the show online more than I expected. I thought the pace was good. With the show not being on television, it seemed it could have taken more liberties at being cutting edge. I know it is an acting awards show, but it would have been great to see some skits from some of the actors, notably, Eric Martsolf interacting with another actress on another show in a comedy skit, or seeing Steve Burton and his music group singing.

    I was thrilled with the winners, especially Eric and Eileen. I would have liked to have seen more of the bigger names on stage in one form or another, notably Maura West, Ari Zucker, Kristian Alfonso.

    The girls who did the pre-show were HORRIBLE. I felt like they were a bunch of 18 year-old high school seniors meeting a celebrity for the first time. Why not ask Linda Dano and Lauren Koslow to do the red carpet?

    Why did the show not do a salute to the members of the daytime community we have lost this past year and acknowledge any of the legends in the audience? Deidra Hall, Jane Elliott, Melody Thomas Scott? Shouldn’t the show have done some form of tribute to Susan Flannery for her contribution to daytime? Just a few thoughts.

    Next year, if the show is not going to be televised, do not have a host. Show more of the daytime stars and have the announcer introduce them as they walk on stage.

    For the people who didn’t watch it, don’t complain about it. You are one of the the reasons it is no longer televised.

    I will not stop at respecting how beautiful it is to encompass this genre

    I watched the Emmys and i have to say i was less than impressed with the entire show. While it moved quickly the acceptance speeches were a huge bore and only a couple of people were cut off unceremoniously and rather nastily by the host and a host of others. So here’s what i got out of the night. The red carpet with those two loud mouthed and snarky girls was quite unbearable. The brunette was doing her best to channel Kathy Griffin and it didn’t work. You got just what was expected from Kathy Griffin as a foul mouthed host who had no reason on earth to bring up Sarah Michelle Gellar and Susan Lucci’s supposed feud. No reason at all. Kelly Monaco was a drunken hot mess and Michael Easton and Michelle Stafford (her co-presenters) were quite uncomfortable up on that stage. But the highlight of the night was visibly shaking and rambling Jill Farren Phelps. The writing is on the wall for her and she proved it on stage last night. She not only dumped the emmy on the ground next to her, she blatantly let it be known right off the bat that Sony is not at all happy with her now. That goes for Les Moonves head of CBS who is finally waking up to the aroma of a burning pot of coffee. The funniest moment was when they showed a clip of NuWill from DAYS and presented the emmy to old WILL Chandler Massey who promptly laughed it off and said he doesn’t even remember that scene…cuz he wasn’t in it. LOL. Whatever that fan fave thing was must have gotten dumped or I just dozed off for a moment during the presentation. That being said I have to say it was a bit disconcerting to have no ad breaks and have this entire ceremony run on like one long dolly shot through a one story building with endless connecting rooms. Here’s hoping next year will be a show of lessons learned and no more undeserving people win emmys over year long powerhouse performances. I must say my mouthed dropped at a couple of undeservings.

    The best had to be the very end though. Kathy Griffin mean mugging Jill Farren Phelps and telling her to just stop thanking everybody and her dog and get off the stage. LMAO till it turned a bit nasty. Kathy: are you gonna thank your F*ing dog?? Jill: I was about to thank my F*ing daughter. The audience: WOAHHH!!

    I’m pretty sure that was the first time i’ve seen JFP …
    so I paid attention…. as she and her team players were lauded best serial

    which i dont’ agree

    first impressions : she looked like a it’s her way or the highway… gunny sack slip covered woman. I didn’t get from her speech…. that she gave one iota or cahoots about intellect and knowing the genre “as well” as she does. she certainly didn’t celebrate like she was responsible for all that… winning best serial…. her verbage… was not believing in her responsibility for the genre… when she told someone… hold this… the emmy…. and started right in with Kathy Griffin… profanity with…. and just lacked the charisma and vitality… that is needed for how passionate this industry needs and the Serial genre relates their hardcore audience.

    I LOL with fans…. as Kathy Griffin ushered her off … and quieted her : the shows over

    ——-

    i don’t know… I really liked that there were no commercials… altho… I know thats our bread and butter… for this genre…

    but… I thought perhaps the stars in attendance… werent’ sure.. about what is capable and how much to voice… they needed to feature OLTL and AMC stars for that

    do I think Sharon Osbourne was far reaching in her f word… I think she was trying to liven up the production… and show it was OK to go their…. she even bested Kathy Griffen… which was not as hard driven or all out “D” List…. she was barely on…. her best part LOL was in lambasting JFP…

    it’s a first for me to put a face to the infamous JFP…

    she repeated herself… twice… in stating that it’s all in the writing…

    and they did pull out all the stops in the Dehlia story…. thereafter… Y&R is forgettable

    my favorite part is always showcasing featuring and panning the stars for fan relish.

    I’m certain next year will be on line… and hope they feature more star interviews with … whomever wants to be on… to give back to the fans

    JFP did not render any recourse… she’s ruining #1 and Genoa City presence

    davlestev1 replied

    @Patrick trying to watch #UFC and respond at the same time. LMAO…How you’ve never seen Jill Farren Phelps is beyond me. After following Douglass Marland (R.I.P.) and Pat Falken Smith all over the place through SoapDigest without the internet..I wanted to know once online who these writers were and put face to madness. That woman has always looked one rock short of a PILE!! What you failed to notice in her speech and can go back and view is how she blatantly blanked SONY. Why??? Because when it comes to numbers and CBS, fans actually do matter. The #FOJ at Sony are distancing themselves from the havoc she has wrought in order to keep their own jobs. The CBS COO or CEO Julie Chen’s husband (#BB 16..this week…WOO HOO) Les is now aware of the dramatic drop in viewership and THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL…and not from her stilted pen. She wasn’t confident and she showed that truth. That’s why that Emmy went to the floor. She’ll be gone by September or the end of the year at best. I SAID IT HERE FIRST!!!!! LOL. As for the stars I think a lot of them were glad a ceremony took place but not at all happy of the non televised coverage…and I don’t blame them. Talk about the red headed step child that is daytime and soaps in general. A genre that buttered both sides of the television media’s bread. What a disgusting level to allow this medium to sink to. They were embarrassed but there. And Sharon Osbourne’s whole thinking is that Brits can swear and say what they want on TV so Americans should be able to also. HELLO @LADIES OF LONDON you’re women are MUCH more crass than ours!!! This needs to go back to TV and if TVGN is the only network that will broadcast this ceremony so be it. It would have been a regular emmy show put together for a normal audience that would have made you run for a cocktail or cup of coffee to keep watching and we would all have been so much more happier and snarkier in our postings.

    I can’t comment on who won as I only watch GH, but I will comment on the show. The red carpet was pathetic. I have no idea who the attractive long haired brunette was, but she was completely inappropriate. (racial, rape, and addiction “jokes”). I’m not a fan of Kathy Griffin, but her performance was tolerable.
    I usually like Sharon Osborne; however sometimes she goes too far and last night fell into that category. Why she felt it necessary to use the F word with such frequency is beyond my comprehension. Its an award show, it deserves some level of formality. Not to mention that there are very young actors who work on many of these shows. She needs to display a bit more class. (I’m guessing she would have behaved differently if Julie Chen and husband had been in attendance.)

    I should have stuck to my original plans not to watch the show. Didn’t feel like supporting them after the way GH was so blatantly snubbed and disrespected in the Best Show category. But I decided to check it out anyway, and my god, what a train wreck it was.

    First of all, the producers should be embarrassed at that disgrace of a pre-show. The hosts had no idea who most of the soap actors were, they told offensive and off color jokes, the language was more suited for a pub at 1am. It was total amateur hour. I was embarrassed to actually be wasting my time on a Sunday night watching it.

    If there is an Emmys next year, how about hiring some people that actually know something about soaps to host the pre-show, like well respected soap journalists such as our own Michael Fairman, and people like Carolyn Hinsey from Soap Opera Digest, and Dan J. Kroll from Soap Central.

    There was no order to the awards show itself, they let the winners ramble on and on forever, especially that woman from Entertainment Tonight, who I think enjoyed a few too many of the free bottles of champagne at the tables. Wrong music being played, wrong clips being shown, the whole show was a disjointed mess.

    I’m not gonna disrespect any of the winners, and make judgments on who deserved it, or who didn’t deserve it, cause I don’t watch their shows. I do congratulate all the winners. But as a GH fan, it was bad enough the show was snubbed for a nomination in the Best Drama category, but then for none of the GH acting nominees to win in any category, I will just say it was very disappointing.

    Dan, I concur with you 100%. I did NOT watch the show, especially with the lack of General Hospital nominations, but was incredibly disappointed that the few awards they were up for did not win any.

    I watched Y&R last year and I can tell you, with absolute certainty, it should not have won Best Drama. It came no where near the quality of GH last year, or DOOL. It’s so disappointing.

    Billy Miller should return to his role in Y&R. The “new” Billy is so extreme in all his reactions and attitudes he seems quite like a fake. The role will never be fit for anyone but Billy Miller. The proof: his recent Emmy Award!

    Congrats to all the winners & nominees. I watch all 4 soaps (I finally broke down and started taping B&B recently with the return of Sean Kanan as Deacon Sharpe) and the only winner I have to say I totally disagree with is Y&R for best drama and best writing. I’ve watched this show for 10 years and the past year or so it has been in a terrible state of poor writing and production. JMO. I hope these accolades don’t further justify turning this once powerhouse drama into its current state; a mere shell of its former self.

    My only other complaint is that daytime dramas have, to me, the hardest working, and frankly, most attractive talent in the entertainment industry. I’m sorry, but I think they deserve better than this year’s Daytime Emmy production. It was abysmal and I’m embarrassed for them. Next year their networks and sponsors need to show some support and put on a real show. I hope all of the stars who were present enjoyed the night. Maybe it just appeared very awkward from my perspective as a longtime fan.

    Never liked Jill Farren Phelps (referring to her daughter in such a demeaning way on TV) since she was behind the demise of Maureen Bauer on GL in the early 1990s. Glad to see her shining moment with Y&R extinguished by the nasty Kathy Griffin. Griffin and Osbourne brought a respectable event like the Emmys to a new low. Change the name of Osbourne’s show to Trash Talk and you will be on target. Good send-off for Katie Couric. GH was the best soap so Y&R should consider that win a steal. Otherwise, I would have selected Days. Eric and Eileen were great selections. Massey is overrated as the Emmy’s wanted to advance their agenda with a Days kiss that did not even feature the nominated star. Bryan Craig had the best scenes. And Jason Thompson was robbed too. Daytime actors deserve a first class show and this stream event was not even close. And put Michael Fairman on the red carpet next year please.

    Go Y&R. Always been a fan and they’ve had quite the year of changes but happy they came out on top… As for the awards ceremony? DID NOT APPRECIATE the mediocer setting and tone, looked like the home video of someone’s wedding lol… And KAREN OSBOURNE & KATHY GRIFFIN ARE GROSS YOUR NOT FUNNY BY RESORTING TO F THIS every 2 seconds.. Those women can learn some class from the soap ladies. And what was JFP WEARING??? Looked like a potatoe sack I’m sry, but hope she has a good year planned for Y&R!
