    From the bottom of my heart I am so upset Sharon Case will not be able to win outstanding best actress this year. What a wonderful actress that deserved to win for an amazing performance ! She deserved to be at least in the running. Sharon Case is my winner! I am a long time viewer over 36 years. Thankyou :)

    I submit Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper
    For the job


    Jovin replied

    Kathy Griffin is vulgar and obscene and disgusting and Anderson Cooper is a bullying crybaby who attacks people when their opinions differ from his. No thanks!!


  3. Beth says:

    Who? For once I’m glad the awards are not online, no desire/incentive to watch.


  4. tim says:

    Al I can say is ????? meaning I have no clue who any of the hosts are. I plan on dvr’ing the show and skipping over the non soap categories, so the hosts are irrelevant to me.


    RICKIE replied

    My first reaction: Who? Who? and Who? Nobodies — the entire lot of them.


  5. Jovin says:

    Why can they NEVER seem to get the Daytime Emmy awards right?? No one has even heard of these three.


  6. Mo says:

    Not Sam Champion. I can barely stomach him on GMA. Good grief.


  7. Rodd says:

    LOL! I frankly don’t care that these people are hosting; just glad it’s on the air. I guess these folks were the “give” in order to make it so. Just give me a healthy dose of my soap opera stars and I’ll be happy.

    Sam and AJ go to my gym…


  9. JR says:

    Who? How about some DT soap stars?
