158 March 24th, 2016 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Nominations Revealed! Ceremonies Will Not Be Televised!

Nominations were announced this morning on The Talk, and then by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences on their website for the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

Leading the nominations with 27 was CBS. The Young and the Restless, followed by General Hospital with 24, and The Bold and the Beautiful with 23.  The awards ceremony will be held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites in Los Angeles, California on Sunday, May 1st.   The Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards will also be held at the Bonaventure on Friday, April 29th, 2016.

However, this year’s press release on the awards came with some not so good news, as of today, it looks as if the event will not be televised after last year’s successful production that aired on POP:  “After last year’s critically successful Daytime telecast, it is with great disappointment that The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announces that there will not be a broadcast of the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy  Awards,” said Bob Mauro, President. “After months of negotiations to find show sponsorship, the NATAS Executive Board has decided that the current climate for awards shows prohibits the possibility of a telecast this year. With that said, we will be putting on a world-class awards celebration honoring the best and brightest of Daytime television and look forward to an exciting show. All efforts regarding returning the annual gala to television in 2017 are underway.”

“We are especially grateful for our passionate Daytime fans and are looking forward to producing a grand gala that honors the talents and artistries of all the professionals that represent Daytime television,” said David Michaels, SVP, Daytime Emmy Awards.   Last year’s Executive Producer, Michael Levitt of Michael Levitt Productions has, again, signed on as Executive Producer of the 43rd Annual ceremonies.

Here now are the nominees! Congratulations to all the hard-working men and women in front of the camera and behind the scenes.

    Shocked over some of the choices in the supporting actress/actor categories. Is there anyway we can see what was submitted? Something is not right.

    I wish;
    The actors would stop submitting themselves.
    If I were a soap actor I would keep my dignity and never enter myself into the dog and pony show, the emmys.

    The way the program is run, the judging, the whole stink of it all, I would never submit myself to be judged ..

    If they want to know the true winners, let the fans vote.. not a judge that sees a clip, but fans who see every scene through the year.

    I am not an Emmy fan, not at all.. more so after the huge emmy scandal that just passed.. judges found to voting but never even looking at the submissions lol sheeesh

    I am curious. Why do you call these nominations a travesty? The pool of actors is not really all that large given that there is only DOOL, Young and Restless, General Hospital and Bold and Beautiful to choose from. I will agree that there are going to be angry fans because the awards will not be televised.

    Derrick replied

    Mary, a few of the nominees left me scratching my head!

    I DON’T CARE ABOUT GH………………..And I hope Tony Geary DOESN’T win Lead Actor for the 9th TIME!!!!!!

    Mary Beth Evans was more Supporting last year than Lead.
    Tracey Bregman got nominated over Gina Tognoni and Melissa Claire Egan???
    When will Eric Braeden get nominated for Lead Actor?????
    Lauralee Bell got nominated over Kelly Sullivan for Supporting Actress??? The only thing I can think of what Lauralee did was when she lost her baby! This is probably why she made the finals.
    Not digging Melissa Reeves so I don’t know how she made the finals for Supporting Actress.
    Why in the HELL didn’t Casey Moss make the final for Younger Actor.
    Max Ehrich was barely on screen last year but I’m not SURPRISED that he got nominated.
    Pierson Fode??????? I was wondering how he made the final but then I found out that he submitted the scene where he punched his dad!
    True O’Brien’s acting didn’t wow me last year so I don’t know how she made the final for Younger Actress.
    Why didn’t Aly Lind made the final for Younger Actress. A lot of people are wondering why Hunter King made the final……….We know why she made the final and she’s going to do a 3-peat with Austin’s death!

    they are using the politically incorrect word ”actress..

    Outstanding Actor <- correct
    Outstanding Actress <- not correct

    Both are Actor <- correct

    I'd like to have ''Dee Wallace – General Hospital'' bring home the gold.
    and-
    Kathleen Gati, Winterthorne
    Anthony Geary, General Hospital

    These 3 ladies, all of them deserve the gold;
    Finola Hughes, General Hospital
    Maura West, General Hospital
    Kassie DePaiva, Days of our Lives

    And why in heck is Bryan a ''young actor''? he is a man.
    Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series
    Bryan Craig, General Hospital

    There should be a special category for;
    Hunter King, The Young and the Restless lol

    Ever notice;
    Eric Braeden
    Maurice Benard
    never submit themselves.

    Sprite replied

    I disagree about actor/actress. We’re all mankind, but there is a distinction between men and women. Frankly, if you wanted to go there, it would just be one category. That would be fine with me. At the end of the day, it’s semantics, but I get your point. I just think calling women actors and not actresses steals their feminity, and that is something to be celebrated. It’s why Wonder Woman was my hero (heroine?) as a child. She represented women’s strengths and virtues, something this world needs more than ever. But again, I wouldn’t mind including men and women in the same category. We don’t give out awards for best female director vs best male director, etc. In any event, I hope Netflix or someone picks up the show so we can see it.

    Agreed. I never refer to a female thespian as an actor….always as an actress.
    Good turn of words, Sprite: “….calling women actors and not actresses steals their femininity”. Amen!!!!!
    We, as women are all heroines.

    True O’ Brien, I miss Paige!
    No Emmy love for Judi Evans & Christopher Sean? I know they were both pre-nominated.
    Good for Peggy McKay, this year she really deserves this nod.
    Very grateful that none of the ‘new kids on the block’ on DAYS were recognized.
    Happy to see Brooklyn Rae (Emma), from GH made the cut! And, Dee Wallace!!! Some of the other GH nominations are the usual suspects, but I’m grateful, too that they got recognized, again. A bit surprised, Hayley Erin didn’t make the cut, she’s really ‘owned’ the role of Kiki. That’s all… for now.

    It is terrible that this show wouldn’t be televised for all the fans to see and it is not fair to the actors and actresses who work so hard for their fans not to be recognized and honored in the right way that they should. We as fans watch the soaps for years and enjoy seeing them receiving their awards just like some fans enjoy the music award shows and the movies and other Tv shows awards. I hope someone will do something about this and change their minds.

    The quality of the broadcast of this award show has gone down so much over the years that it is probably for the best they don’t air them rather than slap together a half ass effort. I know POP made a valiant effort last year to improve the ceremony for the viewing public, but it still pale in comparison to the ceremonies given during daytime golden days. I hope they don’t decide to live stream the ceremony on the web. I respect those working in daytime but I have zero interest in watching they be drunk and vulgar on stage, like they were a couple years back when there was no network standards holding them accountable.

    As for the nominations themselves. I’m not surprised. The only one that have a real issue with is Max Ehrich getting a nomination for Y&R; the guy was on the show maybe a few times last year– during the Scooby Doo murder mystery–I thought there was some rule that you have to be on the show so many hours to be considered for the supporting or leading acting awards? I guess he just squeaked by and it is a real shame because in my mind he doesn’t deserve to be in that category and he has stolen the spot that an actor who actually works in daytime deserves.

    Okay, he is in the younger category, not supporting, my bad, but still he was on the show for about a minute last year, doesn’t seem fair–

Chuck Pratt who is terrible got a writing nomination. i can’t believe their not gonna air on tv again,do they not remember that online disaster two years ago. i have very little interest in watching this year

    Ladies and Gentlemen, we just witnessed a virtual crap on daytime! NOT GOING TO BE TELEVISED? You have to be kidding me! This shows that daytime is basically treated like a dishwasher in a five star restaurant! [No offense to dishwashers!] Really, I see CBS being the last network to televise soaps within the next 2-3 years. What the soap industry should do, ALL three networks, have a dinner AFTER the awards, even though we know who won, televise an after party hosted by soap people and have all the winners take the stage and say a couple words, show a scene they were in and then walk off blowing kisses to the fans. Really, the soap community has to do something for themselves because the networks could give a virtual crap!

    You would think since The Talk promotes anything CBS all of the time, they were already doing the announcements, the “head” lady is married to the head of CBS they could at least have had at least a mini-soap presentation with red carpet day-time event. Could have been fun. I’m sure there could have been some sort of reciprocal arrangement with ABC and NBC…just for the day.

    I am satisfied with the female/male lead nominations. My faves were nominated….as were supporting and younger.
    One question: why Tyler C?.., oh, ok, three questions: why Bryton ; why Hunter? What is it about these actors performances that makes them unique? I do not see it.
    A couple of nominations here and there are baffling, but, oh well !!.
    What I don’t understand is why the small kids are lumped in with the younger adults. Just doesn’t make any sense to me. There are enough younger children to hold a category of their own, yes? No? That’s not how it works?

Days was so good during the anniversary, sucks now, but good then… Why no writing nod? Tyler Christopher us a decent actor, but nothing Emmy worthy IMO! Nic is so boring.

    Tyler Christopher… all of last year… was a phenom… LOVE his bad boy MANLY reel

    meh????

    not so much this year… not that it’s bad at all… just… long winded

    ie: when it was shared… that GH scenes…. are… much longer… more dialogue.. and have more depth and characterization….. ??? hum? REALLY ?

    take for example… Wednesday ep (3 – 23)

    Carly and Dr. Finn : REALLY ? was it that necessary for Carly to bring Dr. Finn a bottle of champagne… LOL because he has an open CHECK… his stay is indeterminate ? and TWO… because she wanted to prop her hotel from getting another bad rating from the Port Charles mayoral office . Carly and Finn spent so much TIME chewing up scenery for nothing ??? it went nowhere ! it ended up being all about Roxie the Lizard ??? OK that was meaningful… once again the GH production trots out Carly for what? glitz and high yield drama . whatever

    same goes for : Hayden and Liz… when Liz overheard Hayden mention Naomi Dreyfus…. Hayden went on and on and on and shot herself in the foot… as in you lose girl…. hayden spouting everything under the sun about … whatever… LOL and told Liz that either she or HER husband will kick Liz and her three boys out of their… Liz isn’t going to let up… get a grip writers… Hayden character is ruined and all the drama that Hayden has… with Liz and Sam… are just that… not moving anything….

    Nicholas… : every since the new writers… have started… giving and handing the character of Jason… win after win in any and all dealings between these two… has become yawn and snore… yet again… there goes Nicholas… repeating the same ole stuff… with both Hayden and Laura… about Helena… alright… I get it…
    Now… Nicholas is being dumbed down about his wife machinations… REALLY ?

    OK GH… you have a huge cast… at this point… may as well trot out the cast as a whole… and just see them all delivering lines

    PS: same goes for Franco TELLING anyone who’ll listen… including telling Nina AGAIN .. just as she was about to be in stirrups… that HE IS NOT FATHER material… argh! ??? doesn’t follow… because he sure has a thing for Liz and her family. which is where he needs to be any way….

    Well, my dear Nikki: it’s like this…..
    Lauralee Bell was nominated because her character is always angry; because she tell her husband, Paul, how to talk, how to walk etc. nothing impressive about this character except that her name is BELL.
    Tracey Bregman (sp) was nominated because her character wants to be twenty again, cheated on her husband; and was such a great mother her son turned to drugs.
    Steve Burton was nominated because his character responds to, ‘sit’, ‘fetch’, ‘walk robo-cop’. And, of course, due to his extreme military experience, he became a cop overnight…no Police Academy, and no acting to speak of.
    Bryton James was nominated for Devon just being a dufus; being led by his ‘unmentionables’ by the greedy hands of his bedeviled wife, Hilary.
    Hunter King was nominated because Summer is the belle, the summer breeze of all soaps put together; past and present. Oh, let’s not forget she’s grandpa’s little cuddly she-cub.

    So many questions…

    How did Christian LeBlanc and Tracey E. Bregman snag leading actor and actress noms with that mess of a cancer storyline that got played once a week at most?

    How did sainted secret cult baby Dylan who was front and center (and sadly a part of nearly everyone’s storyline) wind up in the supporting actor category?

    How did Lauralee Bell garner a best supporting actress nom for what was probably two weeks worth of work when Cricket lost her baby — her only real “storyline” — yet Becky Herbst, Melissa Claire Egan, and Kathleen Gati received nothing for a full year’s worth of screen time? (And yes, I know Melissa Claire Egan is lead material but the Y&R noms seem to operate in reverse.) If there’s no minimum amount of airtime needed to land in this category then Ilene Kristen should’ve been a lock for her role as Delia on GH.

    Why can’t the ceremony be shown on an Internet live feed?

    is DAYS on for the legacy supercouple modus operandi

    I second @emmy emotion… Days of OUR Lives , with post support… has done its level best to retain the Serial recipe of ole…

    I cant say that , THIS YEAR

    Days of OUR Lives… has won … and DESERVED best of show … two of the last 3 years…

    DAYS ; AGAIN: should handily WIN… the accolade of best in show, for: 2015

    I don’t know that I can say it , at all… for 2016.. but that’s next year, and theirs still 9 more months to assess; if it goes by calendar year

    Y&R certainly has the momentum ; for 2016 ? it certainly isn’t working… via: considering POSTS akin word of mouth

    I think DAYS is lacking… and going the same venue.. if you will… short story arcs…

    why else would Ava be killed off so soon
    why else would Andre be taken off canvas readily
    why else would Ben be returning ?

    I mean.. it’s like attention span regurge .. it’s disappointing, how much DAYS does not have solid characters to carry…. which pains me

    I love Steve and Kayla
    I love Chad and Abs

    that’s about it… because they took Justin and Adrienne off contract
    they fired Kassie DePaiva

    Brady and Theresa… although interesting…. haven’t fully sparked

    the whole Hernandez clan… didn’t they seem unsure of how they should meld?

    argh! same goes for .. thank god it’s over… the john and Marlena debacle… oy! to see Deidre Hall… with gun in hand… was too much

    Paul … is still intriguing stuff

    Deimos… Vincent Irizarry is TOP DRAW … I wish he was a doctor.. he’d have been excellent in the Salem “General” hospital… alongside Kayla… would have made all the difference in the world

    the SORAS teen stuff… so mad about most of this…

    it still smarts and has set in… that I still haven’t got over… Ciera Alice being raped… it has cast such a pall over my viewing pleasure.. the serial murder , all of it, is one thing… but, Ciera…

    too much to digest and overcome

    OK ! A part of me… of the SORAS… will miss Chase !

    The actress who portrays… Ciera Alice… tho LOVELY to look at… is simply not strong enough to carry such a big story… and it’s huge because… it’s cast a pall over the entire production…

    what would rectify this ???? rehire Eve and Will… and that means.. ? is Chandler Massey in fact back?

    and YES .. they are two of MY favorite characters.. but it’s vital to the cast as a whole.. that two core characters .. that they be made returned… the actors CARRIED this show

    you know…. all fans and posts can repeat their imagination, lament, and quick to anger…

    I still think.. of the 4 serials… no matter that you think… subpar… DAYS still has the most potential to retain… it’s position

  49. Barbara from Atlanta says:

    What exactly is that comment from the Academy spokesman saying? Is he saying that no network would broadcast it? Or, is he saying that the Academy can’t afford to put it on the air due to lack of corporate sponsorship? Either way, it is a clear sign that the interest in the daytime shows continues to wane.

    Regarding the nominees, the list speaks volumes about the (lack) of shows. There are too few shows left to choose from. How in the world did Lauralee Bell even get a nomination? At best, Bell is passable as “Cricket.” No one would ever confuse her for Meryl Streep. After watching Bell on Y&R for almost 30 years, I cannot recall even ONE scene where I thought “She really can act.” Bell is not horrible (probably due simply to having played Cricket for decades); however, nominating her for an acting award is an entirely different matter.

    It is a BAD sign when the awards can’t even get on television but even worse, when Bell is nominated (and equally “talented” Amelie Heinle wins twice!), but the very talented Jess Walton, Tricia Cast, and Judith Chapman can’t even get onto one episode of Y&R.

    Reply

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    I have to agree with you about Ms. Bell, Barbara. She’s gotten better through the years, and she’s credible in most of her scenes, but it’s hard to view her performances as Emmy worthy. (But on the other hand, she’s no worse than some of the others who have actually won the award in past years, which just points out how ludicrous the Daytime Emmys have become through years of bad management.)

    They still (clearly) haven’t solved the problem of how to handle awards for a genre in which most of the people who could be considered as judges haven’t watched the majority of the episodes through the majority of the year. I see a very uneven list, with some real gems and some real clunkers, but I suppose it’s not impossible to imagine any of the nominees having a few shows to offer in which they gave performances that might make them look like Emmy material. Those of us who watch across the year, however, know who really brings it on a daily basis and who just has an occasional good performance.

Sharon Case deserves to be up there as well, so does Mariah for when she got caught peeping through the window and Nick caught her (while trying to scare Sharon), Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) for the day in Victors office when Adam was talking to Victor’s picture and said he was Adam. No wonder they can’t get sponsers. It’s just become a joke. The pets are up for an award. Lauralee Bell because of her name, Hunter King again the producers pet as well as Dylan.

    I’m happy for all the GH nominations, even if a couple of them have me scratching my head. Sean Blackmore? No offense to him, but I barely even remember him being on the show last year.

    Really disappointed that Maurice Benard got snubbed once again. He hasn’t been nominated since 2011. I thought he was a shoe-in this year because of the paralysis story. I know Sonny Corinthos is a very polarizing character, some love him, some hate him. But to me, there’s never been a question that Maurice is one of the best actors in daytime. Why he continually gets passed over is beyond me and a real shame.

    Also wanted to mention, I thought Hayley Erin did some tremendous work as Kiki last year, especially in the aftermath of the death of Silas. She’s someone I honestly never really thought much of as an actress, but I thought she really came into her own last year. Disappointed she didn’t get nominated.

    I’ll be rooting for Tony Geary to take home his 9th Emmy, and I honestly don’t care how many he’s won in the past. If you do Emmy quality work, you deserve to be recognized for it. As silly as the Fluke storyline ended up being, his acting was exemplary, especially in the 52nd Anniversary show, which is I assume what he submitted. If that’s what he submitted, I don’t see any of the other nominees touching him.

    Everyone saying that Tony has won enough and it’s time for someone else will get their wish starting next year. He deserves one final and well deserved bow.

    I’ll also be rooting for Finola Hughes to take home her first Emmy since the only previous time she won 25 years ago. She’s a pleasure to watch each and every day. Also very happy to see those little cuties Brooklyn Rae Silzer and Nicholas Bechtel get nominated.

    It’s a real travesty that the show won’t be broadcast on TV. I hope at the very least the producers find a way to make the show available online, otherwise what’s the point? Coming online and reading a list of winners will really be pointless.

    Dan and Timmm…just a comment about Hayley/Kiki. I listened to MF and Laura’s “award” broadcast. Laura was talking about the generosity and time the vets used to have to help new actors when they came onto shows. I forget who she was reminiscing about who had helped her years ago to get comfortable on her first sets. Laura then said that there is no time to help anymore because the pace is so fast. I wonder if this is why someone like Hayley, and possibly other newbies we can think of, are not quite seasoned enough (plus lack of decent story ?) when they start a show. Not all…like the young actors who played Luke and his sister in the b/w episodes. Strangely enough they’ve never been able to track the young girl actor down according to MF.

    OK… this is another huge gripe ! I think this happened the year before… when once again…

    not a single best supporting ACTRESS is nominated either in the prenom or made the final cut for; General Hospital

    LOL

    WOAH …

    goes to show… as most will fan roar… GH women are LEAD Superior

    OK

    Lauralee Bell… i’m pleased for her… she shows a great maturity… when she’s given material to SHINE… she deserves spotlight; that being said… her screen time is minimal… compared to the other ladies

    I don’t know that she deserves a nomination over … Judi Evans… Superlative; Period

    THIS, is the one category… I’m truly surprised … need to see the emmy reels

    of the 5 nominees, that made the cut

    I’m always happy to see Jacob Young… he always brings an intensity to his characters… let alone.. as he stated on the LIVE MF emmy show… he went with a comedic and lighter appeal and it just showcases his range. Congrats!

    I’m pleased.. to see Dominic Zamprogna, DANTE from GH ! it’s great to see him break through and deliver… wow ! to see him red carpet… for a reason.. he has that everlasting appeal… well done

    DISGRUNTLE : how is it possible… that Wally Kurth, Greg Rikaart, and Christopher Sean… three top draw with so much natural instinct and are an act unto themselves … not to mention… the camera loves these guys

    I would not have watched it anyway to nominate a man again TG who disrespected colleagues the genre on an awful exit interview with that quack Michael Logan did it for me never want to see his face again stay in Amsterdam please. Personally from the work I heard was turned in it should be Hartley or Christopher that’s my humble opinion. As for actress since it can’t be Becky a travesty I would go for Hughes work.

    Yes,I am very disappointed, I am a Y/R Fanclub member and have been a fan over 40 yrs.
    My family also fans was hopeful of seeing our daughter on tv because she traveled from Ohiio
    To be there.
    We also didn’t like the way Sage was removed from show after discovering her baby.
