Last night in ceremonies held in Los Angeles at the Westin-Bonaventure Hotel, the daytime community gathered to honor their own in the Creative Arts Emmys featuring many behind-the-scenes categories and two new categories for Short Format and New Approaches. We are happy to say that Crystal Chappell’s Venice was the victor in the Outstanding Short Format Program. In addition, it was a big night for General Hospital, who took home the most gold, and a good night for B&B and Y&R!
The New Approaches category went to the creative, What If crossover webisode series, directed by OLTL head honcho, Frank Valentini. Many fan favorites were part of the presentations including: DAYS James Scott, Y&R’s Michelle Stafford and Michael Muhney, GH’s Jason Thompson, and AMC’s Jordi Vilasuso and Lindsay Hartley.
On-Air On-Soaps spoke with many creative forces behind the soaps and the talent in attendance and will bring you more on this in the coming days. For now, enjoy some great moments from last night’s winner circle and red carpet area after the jump and a complete list of the winners!
