    I just finished watching the Daytime Emmys. Two comments. Way too much emphasis on ‘Maria’. Sesame Street is not daytime television. It is kids programming.
    2- Did someone at GH give the wrong sheet music to the music director?? Every time GH won they played THE OLD THEME!

    1- its because the Lifetime Acheivement honoree was Sonia Manzano, who played maria. plus anything starting from 2:00 am to 6pm, the Academy considers it daytime television.
    2- Yeah that surprising. but, i think maybe the old theme was easier to plsy with a band than the new one.

    Eric is correct regarding what the Academy considers ‘Daytime’ tekevision. However the question to ask is ‘Who is the target audience of this awards show?’ It is us…the soap crowd. When it was announced that the awards were not going to be televised who got upset? The daytmie drama contingent. Or the 5 year olds who watch Sesame Street? Surely there is someone in the daytime drama field who deserved a lifetime achievement award. The amount of time devoted to honoring a performer from Sesame Street was disproportionate. I love Rita Moreno however she hasnt been on The Electric Company for decades. When Jeanne Cooper passed she didnt get one tenth of the airtime that Sonia received. Given we who love daytime drama are the target audience the show really jumped the shark when the Lifetime Achievement Award was presented.

    I actually enjoyed the segment to Sonia and liked seeing her clips and I do not watch Sesame Street. She apparently has been in the biz for 40 years.

    I watched the daytime Emmy’s tonight. I thought it was understated. Considering they were in a hotel banquet room the production was not too bad. I was glad there was no commercials. Most unnecessary talk was left out and presentation ran rather smoothly. I am glad I got to see the production.

    I have never seen Sesame Street. However, it is a daytime program. I, too, enjoyed Sonya’s segment. She and Obba gave the best acceptance speeches.
