121 April 27th, 2015 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Winners: DAYS and Y&R Tie For Drama Series, GH’s Anthony Geary & Maura West Take Top Acting Honors!

Last night in ceremonies televised on Pop, and held on the famous stage 16 on the Warner Brothers Lot in Burbank California, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences bestowed honors to the performers in front of the camera, as well as the main creatives in show, directing and writing categories during the presentation of the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the Daytime Drama Series field, it was a tie for the main award of the night for Outstanding Drama Series, when presenters Tony Geary (Luke) and Genie Francis  (Laura) revealed it was a tie!  Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless were victorious.

But in the major acting categories, it was heavily-favored Anthony Geary, who took home his eight Daytime Emmy for his role as Luke Spencer.  And his cast member, Maura West took home her third Daytime Emmy, but her first for her role as Ava Jerome in the Outstanding Lead Actor category.

In the Supporting Actress and Actor contest, it was Y&R’s Amelia Heinle who was given the nod for the second year in a row for her role as Victoria Newman, and winning his first ever Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor was Chad Duell for his portrayal of Michael Corinthos on General Hospital.

It was a nice end to his run as Sonny Kiriakis on Days of our Lives when Freddie Smith was voted as Outstanding Younger Actor for his work, and Hunter King of The Young and the Restless took home her second Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series as Summer Newman.

The Bold and the Beautiful turned out to be the show to beat in the writing and directing fields as the series took home both last evening.

What did you think of last night’s big winners in the Daytime Drama categories?  Did the right show and actors win? Happy about who got some gold? Weigh-in below!

    I was so excited for Tony and Maura!! But equally excited that Chad and Donns Mills won. I didnt understand the Outstanding Dama tie for DAYS or Y & R. Hopefully GH can take that honor again. It is a great show! It was AWESOME to see Genie Francis look so calm and amazing. Maybe she can come back someday!!

    Genie looked great. Can’t say the same for Tony. Haven’t seen him in years so was surprised at how he has aged.

    I think it’s his hair. Many men color their hair….makes a big difference. I don’t think he looks THAT old. Also, he’s been ill. Besides, Mo, Genie is 16 years younger…..big difference.

    Timmm replied

    Anthony Geary is 67. Thats what happens. I though he looked dapper!

    Elizabeth replied

    I think it is telling in a major way that GH is the ONLY show of the four that was NOT acknowledged for its story telling… two years in a row – one would think that would relay to TPTB at ABC that their production team isn’t cutting it (other than their successful budget management). B&B got best writing and directing, Days and Y&R share outstanding drama.

    Maybe now we can get rid of the shallow plot point progression, the camp, the never ending character dumb downs, the never ending personal triangles with no real romance, the epic stupidity of the cartoon mob wars, the never ending baby story lines and returns from the dead.

    And Genie darling, PLEASE STOP letting ABC use you for their selfish aims while immediately thereafter dropping you like a hot potato. You are too talented, too beloved, and too smart to fall for another ratings stunt on your hide.

    Elizabeth, I do love your post–especially that last paragraph.
    Last night David Letterman showed Tony Geary’s Emmy reel in which he proclaims angrily, “I am not Bill Eckert” and pretty much ridiculed it as only Dave can do. It was hilarious and shown out of context, it only underscored the idiotic writing and the idiotic acting it triggered.

    rose replied

    You summed it up really well. That said, I’ll bet there are a lot of “backstage” politics in deciding who gets what. Bet it can be pretty brutal and competitive…just like some soap episodes. Victor Newman come to mind.

    Timmm replied

    I’m sure Genie knows what she is doing. I will bet that she is returning to GH and thats why she appeared.

    Thing is we see our soap everyday for a year..
    The judges see perhaps an half hour of the soap..
    It also depends greatly on what is submitted..

    Big winner;
    FV & RC submitted the Ava & Nina baby scene..WOW that was intense Nina making Ava give birth.. Superb acting!
    along with the great scenes of Michael, Morgan, Sonny and the AJ death, some really awesome stuff!!
    Big Looser;
    The nurses ball stuff (second submit) what people were doing while watching it at home and taking part in the Nurses Ball stuff..
    (there was much better to submit than that)
    I love love love the nurses ball… it is fun..
    It is a good time and entertaining… I’m looking forward to this years NB friday..
    but not great for the emmy submission IMO..

    Last year what killed the #1 for GH was the submitting of the Nurses Ball stuff..
    RC and FV gotta stop submitting nurses ball stuff lol ..
    I know they submit the Ball to show the great diversity/variety of GH (GH is the only soap with both sides of the coin variety/ dangerous to fun ..

    The emmys are totally given by the judges opinions..
    Some judges like this others like that..

    Imagine; Harry and I are judges.. His likes and mine would not match up lol

    KansasGuest replied

    Because each award – Best Writing, Best Directing, Best Show – depends on the episodes submitted for that category. It’s not an “overall” award. And, many times a series will not submit the same episode for every category, thinking one episode is stronger in one area than another & better represents that category. It’s a gamble.

    Wished Alison Sweeney had won Best Actress. So deserved it. Was not a fan of Maura stopping to hug everybody and his brother on her way to the podium. The show was already running late, you can hug people later!

    So surprised Amelia and Hunter won for the second straight year. Hunter more so I guess. There were others who should have been recognized.

    Yay for Freddie!

    Did not like any of Tyra’s outfits. Also, most of the things they did did not work. Did not like the opening and then everyone saying ML’s name was not fun and had things go longer. He should just donate some money to charity, but I guess he wanted to be on everyone’s lips. The game to introduce Betty White was not good. Show us more clips, either of Betty or the nominees. Same with the Family Feud end. And Ms. J’s walk to the podium was not necessary. Didn’t see all of the fan vote results. And the giving away the vacuum cleaner–really? And the cruise–nice for those who won, but move on.

    It was nice it was on TV and it wasn’t the worst award show I’ve seen, but it could have been better.

    Congrats to Days for winning Best Drama. So surprised Y&R was the other winner. I thought it was going to be B&B. B&B won for best directing and writing so I guess it’s the acting that didn’t bring them the gold for best drama. (Just kidding.)

    I guess if B&B and GH want to win Best Drama they need to have Eileen Davidson on their show.

    I didn’t see the show – just a few clips that Pop TV uploaded on Twitter. For me, I believe Maura West deserved the win. As much as I adore Alison Sweeney. It was definitely Maura’s year for me.
    And, yes, super pleased that Freddie Smith won! That was awesome!

    I once read a couple of articles about CBS and Y&R..
    CBS honcho’s want a death story for emmy time lol
    Y&R won of Delihas death, this year ..
    Anyways, they time a heartbreaking story for emmy years or somesuch thing as that..
    I recall thinking ”heh they have a system..
    chuckle at all the death defying illness Y&R has had through the Years..
    Someone has to be dying of some sort of illness, near yearly, or be inflicted with a disease or some such thing/ heh the system AHA! ..

    We now have a man with cancer story
    and a man paralyzed..
    Two struggling with alcoholism and with MS, man with PST and a Bipolar, upfront.
    A blind man got his sight back another got a liver .. lol
    And now its early on in the year..oops s

    Harry replied

    Suoo, what you describe in your last paragraph is the typical MO of a soap opera story. GH currently has a woman (Ava) who has allegedly died. a sixty year old man suddenly suffering from split personality disorder, a forty something man suffering from bipolar disease and etc, etc. This is the soap opera genre and no soap is more guilty of it than the other.

    Nikki replied

    I agree Mo, last year all over again for Victoria & Summer. I turned it off. Do you remember for a couple of years Heather Tom (Katie B & B) won and a few feathers we’re ruffled? Now their doing the same with ( Victoria & Summer Y & R). I guess they pick the ones that haven’t won and let them win a couple years in a row. In other words it’s fixed. Summer was hand picked by Jill Farren-Phelps so it’s no surprise she got it, but it is unfair to the other actresses who we’re better. At this stage I think they should buy a pile of these statutes and just give each one in the cast one, and just forget the show. It sounds expensive but at least it would be fair.

    Tyra looked like the Road Warrior costume designer had thrown up all over her.
    What the hell?
    Hunter King appears to be the “It” girl for the headwriters and producers right now but the viewers do not appear to be fans.
    Amelia won again with her somnolent whispering approach to acting? Award shows are on automatic pilot sometimes.

    Shay replied

    @Harry…..Apparently Tyra and “Alexis” shop at the same unfortunate location. By the way, I thought of you this afternoon, when Lulu suggested Val-Chops visit the stables at Wyndemere….perhaps “Crazy Horse” will find accommodations there to her liking!

    CeeCee replied

    Too funny, Mo. I guess Eileen is the missing link?

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    PS. Mo, I respect your fascination with Ali Sweeney. Great actress!, yes!!. But, it was always a recycled story where Ali was concerned…always more of the same. Different men, but no variation. I was sick of her storylines. Same breakfast, lunch and dinner, day in day out.
    Her redemption, in my eyes was her mourning of EJ. Incredibly realistic. But, could never compare to Maura’s many unparalleled, heart-wrenching performances. My opinion.

    Rebecca1 replied

    The game show, Password, was part of the tribute to Betty White. She appeared on the show many times and married the host, Alan Ludden, who she declared the love of her life. So, it was a nice bit of vintage trivia playfully recreated. Probably sweet for her.

    Agree on Tyra’s outfits. For s fashion model she certainly made a statement…just not a good one. Someone from the fashion police should have arrested her!

    I love Jason Thompson, and I think there were other years he definitely deserved to win. But this was Tony Geary’s year. It was as sure of a thing as there was on that awards show. Jason will get his due one of these years, I’m sure of that.

    I thought it was just a two-way tie for best male guest–Fred Willard and Ray Wise.

    Michael Fairman as his last name would suggest is fair. He is a journalist who happens to be a soap fan. He has interviewed and featured ALL the actors from ALL the shows on this site. We dont know who he asks to speak to or who lets him show videos or add quotes. I will be forever grateful for Mr. Fairmans content. He keeps a genre alive and informs me of news from ALL the shows and the actors perspectives.

    PatF replied

    And to be fair, it IS his site and he can show his love for a show more than others.

    But there is also nothing wrong with his readers pointing it out.

    It’s good both ways.

    I do know that several of the soap sites overwhelmingly picked GH to win best show. I’m sure there was some seething….

    I was thrilled that Maura West won. Her portrayal of Ava Jerome is top-notch. I absolutely love how she slithers in and out of scenes and how she is able to bring so much angst and emotion to each and every scene. She is a beautiful, talented actress. I am thrilled that she won!
    I am also happy for Tony Geary. As much as I disliked the “Fluke” storyline, Tony did an amazing job bringing “Fluke” to life and portraying such a broken, callous, disgusting, vile side of Luke.
    Congratulations to Chad Duell, as well. Chad has done an amazing job with the material given to him. I’ve enjoyed his scenes so much more now that Kristen Alderson has left the show. The jury is still out on “Nu-Kiki;” but, any recast is an improvement, IMO (although, I never really saw the reason for the character or a recast, in the first place-pretty useless character, brings no value to the show).

    Reply

    Shay replied

    @dmr….While I echo your sentiments regarding the well-deserved acting accolades for both MW and AG, I am totally bewildered with your comments on CD. Amazing? (Uh….where and when?) Sorry, but I must vociferously disagree with that assessment. Duell may be a nice guy, however, he’s serviceable at his very best, just downright bland and ineffective in his normal mode. I actually found him a comfortable fit with KA, but then I always liked her, if not her gormless character of Kiki. Having said that, her obnoxious recast is absolutely awful, although no more than that dreadfully deplorable dud of a drip, Sappy, who is now once again being shoved to the canvas forefront in yet another completely contrived, unsuitable hookup with a far superior mate in the futile attempt to make her relevant. Talk about a character that is “pretty useless and brings no value to the show”…..that’s the “Sapster” in a nutshell! Watching her being insinuated into the Quartermaine heir’s life whilst awkwardly hanging around him, just taking up space for no good purpose, has been truly unbearable. It’s utterly beyond reason to have this smug, self-satisfied miss whose portrayer has absolutely no dramatic capabilities whatsoever to be paired with another acting lightweight….just a complete disaster to witness. I nearly lost my lunch seeing those two canoodling …..what a totally mismatched mess! Someone needs to smack “Mikey” upside the head, make him revert back to his mild-mannered, sensible self, and find him a beautiful, sophisticated debutante befitting of his family’s name….STAT!

    I like Sabrina…short and sweet! With all of the other in-your-face actress roles, I think she brings a nice contrast to GH.

    dmr replied

    Hi, Shay,
    I can’t say that I am a huge Chad Duell fan; but, apart from the whining and compared to the other less than stellar young(er) actors on the shows, I think he is able to at least hold his own while in scenes with Maurice Benard and Laura Wright. When Bryan Craig first came on board as Morgan, he was God awful, IMO-the writing was awful, too; however, he has progressed a bit. Perhaps if the character of Kiki was referred to as Lauren she would be a bit more tolerable; however, the character is useless and brings nothing to the show-agreed!

    Timmm replied

    Shay rules! I am so with you on Chad. Probably a nice guy but so annoying as Michael Q. He whines and has a smug look on his face. Yelling all the time does not equal good acting. Well, he did win the Emmy and its good for the show but I feel bad for any of the other nominees. As far as Snorbrina, I thought we got rid of her and she is back in a front burner story ruining every scene she is in. ATTENTION UGLY BETTY’S, if your looking for a lifestyle change, head to Port Charles! Where else can you first meet a rich doctor and THEN a rich corporate executive!

    Jason Loves GH replied

    The jury most definitely isn’t still out on the new Kiki. The scenes featuring this character/actress are tantamount to nails on the chalkboard for me. These scenes are remarkably bad.

    The latest example: Kiki and Morgan adjacent to the elevator outside of Avery’s room congratulating one another about their perceived victory in securing custody of her. This particular scene was so bad that I literally cringed as I watched it. I felt badly for Bryan Craig. Certainly, his performance in this scene was poor, too, but I am a fan of his and the character so he’s forgiven. This time.

    Mr. Valentini…. What are you thinking? Drop this actress (and the character, too). And please schedule her off work 5/15 & 5/18. I cannot fathom watching her live. I am looking forward to these episodes quite a lot. I wish you guys much success in this endeavor. Break a leg!

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    I do agree, Jason. I cannot tolerate this Kiki for much longer. However, I would not get rid of the character. There is a potentially gripping storyline coming.
    I know I will be annoying some people here, as I keep harping on this very subject. But, I swear on my favorite food (pizza, LOL), that it will soon be revealed Kiki is Nina’s…LOL. No, I have not given up.
    That is the well-guarded family secret Dr. O was referring to when speaking with Franco.
    As far as Craig is concerned, I am not as forgiving as you, Jason. That stupid make-out session at the Metro Court made me wince with disgust at both their God-awful acting and at the writers’s uninspiring piece of_______(work).
    Break a leg, indeed…LOL.

    dmr replied

    I used to say that Kristen Alderson was like nails on a chalkboard to me. I can’t say that I am a huge fan of Nu-Kiki and honestly, the character brings nothing to the canvas. In other news, Michael and Sabrina have zero chemistry; their scenes were so awkward. I don’t like how the writers shove new “couples” or pairings down our throats without any back story or history-besides Sabrina babysitting Avery for what, two weeks? Ugh.

    Shay replied

    @CeeCee….Well, all I can say is that nobody deserves the hellacious nuKiki as a daughter more than your beloved Nina!!!! Given that Ms. Jerome apparently inherited her “evil, obnoxious gene” from somewhere, I think you can safely bet your pizza that this purported Jerome is in actuality an apple that did not fall far from the CrayClay tree!!!! Talk about poetic justice after absconding with that little angel, Avery…..instead Nina is going to end up with an adult-sized devil’s spawn as her true progeny. You have to love the irony!

    Shay replied

    @dmr….If you think that Mikey whines now, just wait until he hangs out with the perpetually-annoying Sappy for awhile….as you have so accurately pointed out, they have no backstory or credible reason for their pairing, so it’s pretty safe to assume that there will be plenty of nauseating, nonsensical scenes with little rhyme or reason featuring those two…..no chemistry, indeed! And nothing whatsoever in common. As for CD’s scenes with his parents and brother, I found his histrionics with them to be completely over-the-top…he really isn’t convincing to me in the vengeful mode……he simply seems immature and irritating. While prior to his fallout with the “Famiglia Corinthos” he walked through his scenes with a constantly bewildered expression, he was still pleasant and innocuous enough. Now, he’s a right pain, and so darn arrogant I can’t stand the sight of him and that surly look he has frozen upon his face . I am truly wishing for his downfall, although even he doesn’t deserve the likes of the “Sapster” in his midst….that rates as extremely cruel and unusual punishment!!!!

    Really enjoyed the show last night. It was so much better than last year’s fiasco, and some of those embarrassing Las Vegas infomercial shows that we’ve had in recent years. This was more like the Emmys used to be.

    Very happy for Tony Geary winning his well deserved 8th Emmy, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him take home #9 next year. Glad to see Chad Duell finally get some recognition, it’s been overdue for him, in my opinion, as he’s done quality work for a number of years now, dating back to the Michael prison storyline.

    But I was most happy and pleasantly surprised for Maura West. I didn’t see her winning, since almost all of the predictions had either Allison Sweeney or Gina Tognoni. She seemed genuinely surprised. So glad to see her recognized for her consistently awesome work as Ava, and especially for the much maligned and criticized “crypt sex” episode.

    Great night for GH in taking the two lead acting categories and supporting actor. Disappointing that the show was shut out in the show, writing and directing categories, but I loved hearing the genuinely heart felt appreciation expressed by Tony, Maura and Chad for Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati in helping them get on that stage. Goes to show that while everyone and their brother have their opinions on those two, the people whose opinion truly matters, the people that work for them, appreciate and recognize the great work they do.

    I agree, loved those scenes with Maura, Michelle and Donna, and the baby drama. That was a great episode as a whole, and one of the two that GH submitted for Best Show, which is why I thought they had a good chance to win.

    Maura submitted the crypt scenes with Maurice, but she had so many great episodes last year, she could have submitted any of them and still won. They gave her quality material to work with, and she knocked it out of the park every time.

    Also have been liking her scenes with Silas, especially lately. Be interesting to see how this part turns out.

    What a trio, hey Kansas? I’m with you; these women are as different as night and day, yet so much alike. They are all three strong outwardly and within, yet they have shown their weaknesses and fragility.
    I hope our eyes will feast upon these ladies again, together, in a ‘reunion’.

    MF seems to have a thing for GH’s writers and can’t seem to write a single thing against GH, even when its well deserved. It’s actually laughable at the spin MF writes for GH’s failing raitings.

    MF is a great reporter otherwise, but the blatant favoritism to GH only goes to show there is more going on behind the scenes.

    I understand what you’re saying, GH Fan but as I see it Fairman is not critical of any of the soaps. I think the reason why is that soaps’ existence is precarious at best and his aim is to showcase and promote the soap opera genre in general.

    It simply is-

    GH always has something going to report about, other soap usually do not have much change, GH always has something to report on..

    Overall the emmys have hits and big misses, Let me elaborate

    Hits: Days winning Drama Series , Freddie Smith winning Younger Actor , Chad Duell winning Supporting Actor , Betty White lifetime achievement award , Celebrated 50 years of Days , Entertainment Tonite emmy win , & Luke & Laura reunited , also Daniel Goddard bringing Y&R fan to emmys.

    Misses: Steve harvey losing to Craig Ferguson for game show host , Steve Harvey losing also to The Chew , Jeopardy winning game show for the100th time, Anthony Geary winning Lead Actor again ,( great actor , but enough already), Maura West winning Lead Actress,( talented lady , but she was not the best), I will give a low down on this in my guess review), not annouces all fan favorite awards, Hunter King winning again ( a another low down), Ellen winning again & to many repeat offenders.

    The Actors who were robbed: Alison Sweeney should have won for her work & she will not get another chance to win daytime emmy gold , unless she comes back full time to Days, she might have lost the emmy , but she won by progressing out of soaps into commericals , Hallmark tv shows & movies & she is still the biggest loser host. So Maura west might have won a third emmy , but she still in soaps , need I say more. Usually great actors move on to prime time& movies. Truly they are actors who love the soap medium & stay forever like Eric Braeden , Anthony Geary, Deidre Hall, Eileen Davidson etc. But even Shemar Moore was not that ethusied after reading Maura name , maybe next year the ladies in running for Lead Actress need to put sex scenes in there in there emmy reels. ( just saying) Hunter King is decent but Camilla & Haley Pullos were better and one of them should have won , this category has lost its luster. I was hoping that Finola Hughes would have won , but Amelia Henlie won again. Bryan Craig here is hope you get win next year , glad Freddie won , but looks Bryan & Alison were in the same boat. Overall the emmys had improvement but needs some more work on acting nominees.

    Thank you. I was baffled how Y&R managed to pull off a tie for best serial. I was unable to watch the footage reels here in Canada, but you’re solved the mystery for me. The showdown between Billy and Adam was the only memorable story line in 2014– and I sincerely doubt when nuBilly and nuAdam confront each other again, it will get anyone an Emmy award.

    And it isn’t just you, I find it interesting that she would submit that scene as well– but there wasn’t anything else they did in 2014 that stood a chance of winning anything– so it might have been classless, but to make herself look like a smart producer, it was the right call to make.

    Marquee : “Days of OUR Lives” WINS

    YES, YES, LOL, and, MORE “yes” : I was secretly hoping… I honestly thought Days, had a chance !

    I was giddy beyond repose

    I do not have “POP” … and was on the computer, last night… while cooking dinner… “waiting” for updates… from Variety.com

    they announced Y&R first… and I exhaled… lamented… and ! drum roll… there was a tie ! and DAYS ! has risen

    if you read the 4 soaps submissions… for : “Best Serial”

    it’s hands down bar none: Days, should have been the clear frontrunner

    “GH” went with the first episode from its annual Nurses Ball (which had numerous entanglements) and also the shocking episode in which Franco’s aborted wedding to Carly set the scene for the revelation that Michael’s biological dad A.J. was murdered by stepfather Sonny.

    “The Bold and the Beautiful” submissions feature an interrupted marriage ceremony and a derailed love match. International sensation “Bold” still manages the unique feat of taping overseas

    “Days of Our Lives” exec producer Ken Corday selected Sami finding her beloved E.J.’s “dead” body, and Will and Sonny’s marriage ceremony, the first gay male wedding in daytime.

    “The Young and the Restless” won last year’s top prize for episodes involving the hit-and-run death of little Delia Abbott and continued the storyline this year.

    This year’s submission includes an episode in which Delia’s father, Billy, has a showdown with the driver, Adam.

    “What Adam did wrong was not coming forward about an accident,” says Jill Farren Phelps, “Restless” executive producer, a nine-time Emmy-winner for producing three different daytime soaps. “The performances we had in those shows last year were outstanding.

    “In my experience, a show I have won an Emmy for has evoked an emotional response from the audience,” adds Phelps. “That’s what I look for when I decide what to submit.”

    as for Y&R : they deserved to win last year… for “Dehlia’s Death”…. that being said… just as JFP “lauds herself” her submission, renders some validity… were scenes from January, of last year… with Billy Miller and Michael Muhney. ’nuff said

    I have to submit, love me some, Amelia Heinle ! LOL : YES ! this started my night !

    this was the toughest category : bar none

    how could any one choose from SO “much” strengths

    good lord

    Lisa LoCicero, Olivia, GH
    Finola Hughes, Anna, GH
    Elizabeth Henrickson, ex-chloe, Y&R
    Linsey Godfrey, Caroline, B&B
    Amelia Heinle, Victoria, Y&R

    In this order… I honestly, thought… they should have “won” knowing in my mind… my favorite of ; thee nominees was my Amelia

    Lisa LoCicero blew this out of the water… I thought…”oh no” …. Amelia scenes were with Burgess Jenkins… I didn’t give her much hope

    LOL

    lo and behold… after thinking about the outcome

    I clearly am captivated by AH’ Victoria… I feel a protective, toward her… a shield, a net,
    when she emotes

    I liken her win… along the same lines of Maura West : for her 3rd accolade

    subtle, nuanced… not over the top… overbearing… or histrionic

    just lovely women beautifully portrayed by actresses… who shine brightly… YES! it’s my girl… and even so… Ali Sweeney, ex-Sami, for DOOL, deserved to win….

    it was Amelia and Maura TIME to laud

    SO : 1. Days of OUR Lives
    2. Amelia Heinle
    3. Freddie Smith, ex-Sonny, DOOL

    4. DAYS of OUR Lives : best sets (LOL)

    disgruntle mode :

    Chad Deull, Michael, GH
    Hunter King, Summer, Y&R

    these are two of the WORST actors … so boring uninteresting… lacks so much presence

    I’ll throw in there… one from each serial

    Shawn Christian, Daniel, DAYS : pitiful
    ??? B&B ex-Ridge : Ron Moss

    I have so much respect for actors on daytime. They work really hard and have a lot of dialogue to remember. Look at Donna Mills, she was a primetime soap queen. She came on GH and her head was spinning from all the lines she had to remember and was blown away by the pace in which the actors work. One of the reasons maybe daytime gets laughed at? Chad and Hunter Emmy winners? Seriously, if you watch any of the Disney XD channel with their tween shows, some of the kids are really talented. These two numnuts suck!

    I knew Chad would hold an emmy, he was awesome..

    Anthony Geary!! I had no doubt that you would bring your 8th gold lady home!

    Joan Rivers memory tribute /clip had people crying..

    The Betty White Life Time Achievement Award was more than awesome..

    I saw Luke and Laura, they just didn’t seem right or something. Tony looked he could be her father..

    And this- I totally do not understand..
    Outstanding Drama Series: Days of Our Lives and The Young and the Restless (TIE)
    Y&R was zzzzz horrible last year/fact..
    DOOL was so bad, via fans, they thought it might get canceled..
    hmmm both a pity win/lol just kiddin’

    – The 2 shockers;
    Amelia Heinle is behind the acting talents of FH and LC….
    I am shocked she won over the great Finola Hughes/Anna Devane GH and
    Lisa Locicero/Olivia Falconeri GH.. ohh well ..

    Hunter King is a screamer cryer no tears just loud..that is not acting just loud noise ..
    A huge percent of fans on boards wanted her to shut up lol .. but she took an emmy /bewildered over that one.. ohh well ..)))

    No opinion on BB and DOOL, haven’t watched them..
    I’m happy for their fans on their wins!

    (just my opinions if you don’t agree, then you are wrong AHA! :)

    ohh yah.. Maurice/Sonny, should have at the leat 4 emmy’s, whats up with that, sigh….(one emmy around 15 years back)

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    Ah, su. You are something else. I love it.
    Have you ever stopped to think for one minute, that Maurice did not win because he can’t act? In my opinion, all his years of having been given the label of a great actor, was due to the fact that his persona as a mobster was glorified. He lisps, he stumbles through his lines, and Sonny is not the formidable mini-man he wants to have us believe. Look what happened to Napoleon…LOL
    I saw many of his clips….not impressed….especially, his attempt at emulating Michael Corleone. BAH and LOL.

    Dan replied

    CeeCee, gotta strongly disagree with you on Maurice. I think the fact that so many actors submitted scenes that they shared with him and got nominated (Maura, Chad, Bryan Craig this year, two of them won) is validation of what kind of actor he is.

    The year Laura Wright won her Emmy, it was because of scenes with Maurice. Even though he’s still a lead actor on the show, he’s actually become more of a better supporting actor in recent years. I notice that every year. So many of the GH nominees submit scenes where they work with Maurice. To me, that’s a huge testament to the kind of actor he is.

    To answer Su’s point on why Maurice hasn’t won more. I’m pretty sure he stopped submitting his name for Emmy consideration. I don’t remember seeing his name on the pre-nomination list the past few years, and practically everyone and their brother gets a pre-nomination. I remember an interview he did a few years ago where he talked about how he wasn’t a big fan of the Emmy process, and actors competing against each other. So I really think he may have stopped submitting his name.

    CeeCee replied

    @Dan.
    Hello, Dan,…been a while.
    I can see, from your praise of Maurice that you admire him and his acting. I respect that. I cannot ‘get’ into this actor. Perhaps, the fact that I despise his characterization of Sonny rubs off on him? I guess it’s not fair, but I only know Maurice as Sonny.
    So far, I have not found him as a strong actor. He has done nothing to wow me.
    Again, it is not fair, on my part, since I am not familiar with his past work, except what I have gleaned on the Internet.
    I suppose you are right, in that, he is now a supporting actor, a stepping stone, if you will, for lead actors/actresses.
    I wish I could see what Sonny’s fans see in him, then , maybe, I would understand all the adulation.

    su0000 replied

    Maurice; his movie- ” The Ghost and The Whale.”
    His performance blew me away!!.. so different than Sonny..
    He is very talented.. I really like watching him preform..

    (sorry CeeCee :) lol

    CeeCee replied

    @su…
    I love you, girl. Don’t be sorry for liking certain actors/characters. It’s your privilege . That’s what makes the world go ’round.
    I think, the fact that I really do not like the Sonny character and his ilk, has rubbed off on Maurice….which, as I said, is not fair of me. I do not know him personally. Thus, my reasoning has no rhyme or reason…I realize that. We all have our faves…later.

    abruzzfan replied

    Su I agree with you: “Y&R was zzzzz horrible last year/fact..” I can’t believe they actually won for best series. It has to be a joke. It is obviously fixed. Based on the winners that I have seen over the last several years, it seems that the people voting work for CBS since they seem to win (Y&R and B&B) when they don’t deserve it. IMO.

    I dont see how GH doesnt win Outstanding Drama Series. I could see GH tying with DAYS but to tie with Y&R is a joke. That show was lost in 2014! And I dont like that the shows tied. I can see an actor having such a good year it ties because we are talking humans here, but a show, one had to be a little better than the other. I am happy for Tony and Maura. They both deserved it and won. Hunter King, are you serious? You know what that means, ALL Summer ALL summer long! That whining and yelling is such a turn off. Every scene she is in she has a look on her face like she is smelling rotten meat! Ugg! Tyra wasnt bad or lets say she wasnt nearly as bad as the Griffin “Women.” Steve Harvey was loud and obnoxious! The memoriam with Babyface was nice. I also liked the shows tribute to Days. All in all, not bad, I just wish they played clips or reels from the actors nominated. If not for all of them, at least the leads or even clips from all four shows. Its on POP, who cares if the show runs way over its allotted time! Love Boat reruns can wait!

    Steve Harvey looks like The Potato man.
    Another disappointment was that there was a promise that a HUGE announcement was going to be made during the Daytime Emmies.
    That HUGE, earth shattering announcement is that the Road Warrior Costuming for Dummies star, Tyra Banks, was going to have her own talk show.
    Holy disappointment, Batman! I would have been more excited to hear that Homer and Marge Simpson Chia Pet Heads’ gave birth to a Bart Simpson Chia pet head.

    I had never heard of the Pop channel and tried to find it amongst the hundreds of channels TW cable provides. Did not find it. I laughed when I read two of the four remaining soaps “tied” for best drama. Really now. The awards don’t mean much with so few soaps on the air. It seemed academy voters tried to spread the awards around to give each soap a little credibility,

    I thought it was a good show. All the soaps fared well. The Nurses Ball probably cost GH a chance at winning best drama. It was strange to see B&B win writing and directing,but not best show. I think it had to do with the episodes they submitted. I didn’t think those location episodes could win best show,they focused more on production quality than story. Congrats DAYS. Not overly surprised Y&R won best show again. The academy seems to like Jill Farren Phelps. She always seems to pick the right episodes to win.

    KansasGuest replied

    JFP may have the touch for episode-picking. But, GH is clearly the show for actors to challenge themselves. I think it says something that seasoned actors (Billy Miller, Michelle Stafford, Maura West, Donna Mills, Roger Howarth, Michael Easton) are attracted by GH’s atmosphere & reputation. And, longtime GH actors – Tony Geary, Chad Duell, Laura Wright, Jason Thompson, Finola Hughes, Tyler Christopher, Maurice Bernard – continue to find their characters interesting & fun to play.

    I hope that for next year’s Emmy competition, FV & RC chose the April 1, 2015 episode to submit – where Luke flashes back to his childhood. It’s early in the year, and there might be some great episodes yet to come. But, that was one amazing episode IMO.

    While not in contention this year, add to your list of actors going above and beyond…currently Jack Bergman of Y& R is doing a phenomenal job as Jack and his doppelganger. As is Cady McClain as Kelly.

    In a year a lot can happen BUT I would bet Tony has a strong chance of winning his ninth Emmy for the black and white episode. It was perfect!

    KansasGuest replied

    @Timm – I completely agree. When I recall what Geary did in 2014 to win this award, I cannot imagine the preliminary panels passing him over for the 2015 award if the anniversary show is submitted. What he did in that episode was so amazing compared to anything he did in 2014. I also expect Dee Wallace Stone to be nominated for her guest role

    Shay replied

    @KansasGuest…..I concur that Dee Wallace will be fully deserving of a nomination for her far-too-brief guest stint on GH, although I may never forgive her character for foisting the appalling Val-Chops on Port Charles!!!!!

    With only 4 shows left, a tie, REALLY?? Wish Allison had won for sentimental reasons, but Maura was deserving and gave the best performance, so I am very happy for her..Anthony Geary, you got your 8 emmy, congrats and you are very deserving of it, best performance in the lot!!!..You are the greatest actor in daytime history and most likely you will win your 9 emmy next year and I love you as an actor, but PLEASE take your name out of consideration for emmy nomination, let your other co-stars get a shot a nomination…Just seems like the right thing to do ( ala, Oprah and Candice Bergen)

    Best thing was watching Chad and Freddy finally winning emmys..So well deserved for these superb young actors..There is something about the emmys both daytime and primetime that is so consistent..They are stale, never a surprise and always, for like 75% of the time, the same multiple winners over and over, same nominees over and over..Some deserving, most of the time not so much.

    I had a lot of mixed feelings about this year’s telecast, but I must admit that it was ten times better than last year’s fiasco. Tyra Banks was too much about herself instead of hostessing the Emmys. Hope they pick someone less self-promoting next year. Her outfits were horrendous IMO. And that guy sashaying down the isle? OMG! I’ve got to agree with Shemar; they should have cut that waste of time. The event seems too much like a giant game show with everything a few select audience members got. Too much time was spent on them, which I’m sure they enjoyed, but the rest of the nation had to suffer through this waste of air time.

    Another complaint I had was the camera work and the calls made in the control room. I loved the young lady who sang while the montage played, but we soap fans would have liked to have seen the whole thing; not so much of her. She sang beautifully and was gorgeous, but my goodness!, they paid for those clips and we deserved to see them. I was worried that the same thing might happen when Babyface started to sing for the In Memorium section. And then the cameras were on peole nobody knew half the night instead on on the daytime stars. I’m not even talking just my soap stars. They weren’t on talk show hosts, game show hosts, cooks, few few soap stars at all. It was like they had no idea who these people were. maybe next year they could read this website, read a SOD or even the shows’ websites. Yeah, I think it’s called research, so they’ll be prepared.

    What I did like was the look of the studio. It did show some class. The people were dressed up for the most part ~ though some unrelated to the daytime field looked like slobs. I loved seeing my soap stars whenever they popped up or presented. I loved Betty White, though the game show was a snooze fest = waste of time. Loved her clips. Loved the DAYS montage and that so many of my favorites won. I was leery of any great build-up to Tony Geary appearing with Genie Francis, but man!, did she ever look fantastic! I have hope after this year, that the producers are on the right path to getting it right once again. We’ll see next year…

    The Fluke storyline might not have been the best, but Tony Geary definitely deserved that Emmy. He played a role so different than anything Luke has ever been in his 37 years on the show. I didn’t find anything “ho hum” about it. Tony will almost certainly be retiring in the next few years, so other actors wll have plenty of opportunity to win in future years. But in the meantime, whether someone has 20 Emmys or zero Emmys, if they put in the quality work, they deserve to be recognized.
