    It’s so sad that they can’t air the daytime Emmy on tv because of money ?? Yet one always heard how shows like the today show and gma are money makers for the networks, and all those talk shows where the host like Ellen don’t even bother to attend anymore. It’s pathetic really.


  2. Jean Keller says:

    i am so upset about your not televising the soap opera daytime Emmys I’ve been watching all soap operas probably 45 yrs and now I can’t watch the awards very disappointed viewer


  3. su0000 says:

    I’m not watching that junk..
    Michael Fairman will post the winners and any upsets..
    So- I’m fine ..


  4. davlestev1 says:

    Congratulations to those who get to see and enjoy.. Have fun.. The daytime viewing audience keeping the final four going thank you in advance for your kind consideration of us.. I’m actually getting angry now lol.. At first it was like oh well.. Now it’s.. Heyyyy I’m one of millions of reasons why this is even happening


    davlestev1 replied

    So hard to swallow this.. Remember when they were the happening event.. so much so that the networks rolled out special primetime soap episodes right before the awards I feel like Lost In Space Dr. Smith.. Oh the pain… Lol


    Patrick replied

    “oh… the pain is real”

    dag nab it ALL

    3 things come to mind

    1. Best Leading Actress… I’ve never been so torn .. in YEARS
    I want a TIE . Kassie DePaiva and Mary Beth Evans for the WINS

    2. Anthony Geary… will he be present… what will his LAST words be …?

    3. I know… Best Serial…. I still think DAYS has nothing to lose… and may well be up to par…. at least… for the last part of 2015… August through Dec… no matter how the cast upheavals… was at the top of it’s game ON.

    Days has won twice… 2 out of the last 3 years… so… I’m hoping

    we’ll know the answers … in … 6 DAYS

    BEST LEAD ACTOR (male) is also “tough” should AG be lauded for his contribution… and become … the most celebrated actor… in television… with 9 deserved wins? he’s tied with Chloris Leachman.. who has 8.

    I truly want either Tyler Christopher or Justin Hartley

    this just intensifies how ( a now show )… dissed it feels.. right?

  5. Mary SF says:

    When will they announce who is hosting? Did I miss that announcement?


    davlestev1 replied

    Probably the warm up comic


    davlestev1 replied

    It might be PHELPS and PRATT.. that ole comic duo.. Daytimes Stiller and Meara

  6. Lin says:

    Why isn’t it on TV? How disrespectful.


    Lou Piikes replied

    Low ratings is why the Daytime Emmy’s aren’t going to be on television.


  7. Anthony says:

    Since we will not be able to view the ceremony — who needs to know who is presenting? Like: Here’s a list of presenters you won’t see, giving an award you won’t see, going to a daytime individual who you won’t see. Seems pointless to me. IMO this is just another indication of how little regard there is for daytime tv in general – not just the soaps. Maybe snippets will somehow end up on youtube in the days that follow the show. Any the emmy goes to……..


  8. Timmm says:

    I could give a rats azz! They took the air out of the whole thing by not offering the viewers a chance to watch their favorite stars win gold. MF will cover the show and we will find out the winners AND losers and it will make for a fun couple of days of debating!


    su0000 replied

    hey Timmm..
    where it will be streaming-

    Parachute TV (internet)

    PLEASE NOTE: We are excited to be live-streaming red carpet & behind the scenes coverage of the Daytime Emmy Awards.
    We will NOT be covering the ceremony.


  9. Trudy Back says:

    What channel will daytime soaps air on May 1?


    su0000 replied

    It’s not on network tv it is on the internet..


  10. Tommy Burke says:

    Seems like the heads of daytime don’t really care about their daytime shows nor the audience that watches them. Show some respect to your fans and let us see the show on TV. What a STUPID move and bad message it sends to the daytime television audience and actors. No respect.


  11. Dahlia Torres says:

    Once again I cannot see the awards show. Television has award shows all over cable and the Daytime Emmys are not worthy enough to be televised…..How pathetic is that…..


  12. Dee says:

    But yet they find money to air stupid. Trash music/ rap music awards
