    Not sure how I feel about the Daytime Emmy’s landing in Vegas again. Here’s hoping that the producers take feedback from fans last year and actually showcase the performers and shows, rather than making it a video postcard straight from the Vegas Tourism Dept.!

    It was appalling how little the honorees and shows were featured last time around, in an event created especially to celebrate them?! Definite head scratcher. I guess the good news is that it can’t get any worse than last year….. I hope!

    yes, I agree.

    I still remember the old days when they had categories like, ‘favorite super couple’ and a lot more clip montages and ‘best music’ and they actually played a clip showcasing the nominee in question before the winners in each category was announced.

    Considering that this could be the last year they HAVE daytime emmys televised, it’d be a nice tribute to – as you noted – showcase the peformers.

    I still can’t believe One Life and AMC were cancelled. Especially One Life. Their stories are good, the actors are great and oftentimes their ratings are on par with GH. What happened?!!

    So sad. I will miss Vicky, Dorian & Erica.
