    Hey – this beats a poke in the eye with a sharp stick! Thanks for making the ceremony available. It didn’t have the “bells&whistles” that a live on TV broadcast would have had, but it was just fine. There is a difference between ‘knowing’ who won an award and ‘seeing’ who won an award. Thanks for posting this video of the ceremony. I appreciate it.

    I loved when GH won at the end and Steve Burton stood up and applauded:). Only actor from another table to do so. Very classy of him. And I also liked they asked Tristan to come up with the show. It was nice to se him and Tony together with Finola.

    Very nice gesture! Wish it were more than a “gesture”–wish “Robert” would come back to GH.

    “he” (Steve Burton) has a nice smile…. I was like woah

    was nice

    I miss Steve Burton… HE “made” the character of Sam…. “work” as a twosome TEAM

    watching nuJason and Sam… currently… is beyond reason….

    these two are … as I’ve been holding steady… are now “fast forward” material

    argh! Maxie is asking Sam for Nancy Drew Show…. her pet with muscles will follow dutifully…

    so.. here comes the unfolding of who is Claudette…. as Dr. O is telling Nathan… “at all cost” do not say a word about…. their past with “Claudette”

    it’s all so cutesy cutesy… Sam is “handed” clues… and it all comes out neatly bow tied and why not

    it’s all too adorable…. hope we have another barn scene with more hay

    Thanks for posting this, Michael! Allowed me to fast forward through the fluff and only watch the awards I cared about. I loved Tyler Christopher’s speech. He seemed genuinely shocked and moved to have won, probably cause everyone assumed it was Tony Geary’s award to win. Very happy for Tyler. He’s been good at GH for so many years, and it’s nice to see him be recognized. Hard to believe it’s been 20 years since he debuted.

    Very happy for Bryan Craig as well. He gets a lot of criticism on this site and others, and I never quite understand that. I think he’s grown a lot as an actor since he debuted on the show, and that he really shined with the bi-polar story. Congrats also to Sean Blakemore. That one was a surprise considering how little he was on the show last year, and also to GH alum Mary Beth Evans!

    Wonderful to see GH back in the win column again for Best Drama Series. I thought Frank and company did a great job in submitting the two episodes that they did, the obviously fantastic 52nd Anniversary show which I said at the time it aired was gonna get them an Emmy, and a show from December that featured a lot of emotion and wonderful acting. One episode representing the Carlivati era, one episode representing the Passanante/Altman era, the best of both worlds, and everyone gets to share in the award, as it should be.

    The only negative I saw with the Emmy broadcast is the band they had playing the soap themes, or whatever that was, with all due respect to whoever was involved, that was cringe worthy. Especially playing the GH theme from like 5 years ago. Just play the theme songs from the actual shows like they’ve done on the Emmys for years. Those are the small details that soap fans like for on a show like this.

    Overall I enjoyed it. There were some moments I could have done without (The Talk hosts, the Real hosts).

    Loved Obba’s speech. Got teary eyed with Mary Beth and Stephen Nichols. Nicolas B from GH is adorable. Tyler’s speech was great too.

    Yay for no commercials. Loved the Muppets. The Lifetime Achievement award was nice and the package of her clips.

    Camera crew didn’t always know who to focus on when the nominees were announced.

    Jessica gave a nice speech and seems like a nice person. If she’d been like that on Y&R, I would have enjoyed her performance more.

    nancy dillingham replied

    Very nice, appropriate, and heartfelt, genuine speeches by Mary Beth and Tyler–no grandstanding–just sincere. Refreshing indeed!
    Re Emmys program: I could have done without the opening with the Muppets–but I understand why they were featured.

    Thank you so much Michael for being such a thoughtful, dedicated and may I say excellent Soap journalist, soap news provider, and enthusiast. If it weren’t for your site, I would have nowhere else to go to obtain the most up-to-date soaps information, watch my favorites on the Daytime Emmy this year, watch or hear your in depth interviews with soap actors, view clips and get to express my opinion. There should be an award given for the best go to Soap website. I nominate Michael Fairman’s On Air/On Soaps and you Michael- You should be recognized. I’m sure you love what you do and have so much fun doing it, but let’s face it..you work hard. Thank you for providing us fans with all that you do.

    Frank said…”This cast, led by Laura Wright and Maurice Benard…”. Laura, while arguably the best Carly, and a fantastic actress, has been on the show for 11 years, while some others have double or even triple that time. He shouldn’t have mentioned names, especially only two names. He just should have thanked THE CAST….not the cast led by anyone. To choose just two actors in a bloated ensemble cast just reeks of favoritism and narcissism. Sonny and Carly are VERY polarizing characters, and judging by all the fan message boards, the vote is split as to whether the characters are loved or hated. I certainly don’t feel they lead the cast. To me, all their scenes together are fast forward material because I can’t stand either character, as they are both sanctimonious hypocritical blood thirsty mobsters who feel that their lives are more important than anyone else’s. Laura’s luminous presence makes the character of Carly tolerable, for me, but just tolerable. If she had a really dynamic love interest, who was not a murderer or mobster, that would be awesome!! In ALL my years of watching the Emmy Awards, I have never heard such a callous comment by an Executive Producer while accepting an award. Knowing the fragile ego’s of some actors, I predict some ruffled feathers after that comment.

    I totally agree with your take on Frank’s comment and about the Sonny and Carly characters.

    I cannot believe that Sean Blakemore won for Supporting. I think he was in about 5 shows last year. There should be some kind of minimum screen time requirement in order to get a nomination.
    I am happy for Bryan Craig. He completely deserved that award. His work on the bipolar disorder story was great.
    The announcer completely mispronounced Gina Tognoni’s name.
    Michelle Stafford’s dress was gorgeous! What a beautiful body she has.
    Did anyone else notice that Jacob Young was completely trashed while presenting?! He was slurring his words and really had no clue what he was talking about.
    How cute were Tyler and Nicholas hugging when Tyler won? Nicholas was adorable at the end when GH won for best show. He was so excited!
    The camera did not always know who the nominees were and sometimes focused on the wrong people.
    Mary Beth Evans and Stephen Nichols were adorable.
    The band or orchestra who was playing the theme songs was pretty amateur. They sounded like a high school band.
