The Daytime Emmys Report: 'Dr. Oz' and 'The Bold and the Beautiful' Score Big

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jun 20th 2011 10:05AM
Jonathan Jackson, Daytime EmmyThere's not much to celebrate about daytime TV these days with 'All My Children,' 'Oprah' and Regis Philbin going away, but don't tell that to the Daytime Emmys. The annual awards broadcast threw on quite a party last night on CBS.

Hosted by Wayne Brady ('Let's Make a Deal'), the show entertained with musical numbers (from Brady and Marie Osmond), had touching tributes to Oprah Winfrey, Susan Lucci and Lifetime Achievement Recipients Pat Sajack ('Wheel of Fortune') and Alex Trebek ('Jeopardy') and, if you're a soap fan, you saw some surprising wins including a tie for the directors of 'The Bold and the Beautiful' and 'The Young and the Restless.'

Read on to get the scoop from your winners and see how why the Father's Day-win was especially poignant for one trophy recipient.

'Daytime Emmys': Ben Bailey in Bathroom When He Wins, List of Winners (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 20th 2011 4:02AM
Ben Bailey, 'The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards'Ah, the human body. It can be so damned inconvenient at times. Like when you're name is being announced as a winner at 'The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS).

That's what happened to Ben Bailey when he was temporarily missing in action after he and 'Cash Cab' took home the Emmy for Outstanding Game Show Host.

It was Bailey's second win in a row, but the first that he almost missed entirely. He could have played it off completely if he'd wanted to as he had a great line ready when he finally did make it to the podium.

"Thank you very much," he said taking the Emmy. "Well everybody, I couldn't get a cab. What can I say?"

Daytime Emmys Head to Vegas, CBS

by Scott Harris, posted Apr 23rd 2010 3:09PM
It's one of the most sacred and ironclad truisms of the American way of life: What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. But now a challenge to that fundamental right is being launched from one of the most unlikely sources: the Daytime Emmys.

Yes, according to a press release from CBS, the Daytime Emmys are heading to Las Vegas later this year for its 37th annual ceremony. And despite sloganizing by the Nevada tourism board, the awards will be televised, meaning that just this once, what happens in Vegas will in fact be broadcast nationally.

Weirdness in the Daytime Emmys nominations

by Allison Waldman, posted May 15th 2009 10:32AM
The View standing

They have feuds. They have babies (at least one of them). They have daily debates. But the ladies of The View have no sway with the Daytime Emmys. Well, that's not entirely correct. The ladies themselves, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Barbara Walters, Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, received an Emmy nomination in the category of Outstanding Talk Show host(s), but their show was snubbed.

Whether it's deemed a Talk Show/Entertainment or Talk Show/Information, it's not deemed worthy. But The View's missing nomination is merely one of the many oddities of the 36th Annual Daytime Emmy nominations. Something is really bizarre in the batch of noms.

No home for the Daytime Emmys?

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 19th 2008 9:03AM
EmmyThere's a real problem brewing for the Daytime Emmys. The annual broadcast which has been switching off from year to year between ABC and CBS, may not make it to prime time because CBS has decided to skip its turn...and ABC is not ready to step up and take on the award show.

To some this is simply a symptom of the decline of interest in daytime dramas, which dominate the awards. If you check out my post from last year's show, my assessment is not that the broadcast is the problem, but rather it's the nominations. There are too many repeat winners, too many actors who are overlooked in the nominating process, and too much sameness. The Daytime Emmys problem starts with the awards, not the show.

Still, what about the foreseeable future and the 2009 awards -- will they be shown on TV?

TV Squad Soap Report: My Emmy nominations for 2009

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 26th 2008 10:22AM
TV Squad Soap Report logoDid you enjoy the Daytime Emmy Awards last week? Were you happy to see grand soap stars like Anthony Geary and Jeanne Cooper honored? I have no complaints with the winners -- and as I mentioned in previous posts, I had predicted some of them correctly. But I do have qualms about so many actors and actresses who weren't even nominated.

A lot of great performances weren't recognized. Therefore, I've decided to recognize a few actors and actresses who should be on the ballot in 2009! That's right, this is a pre-emptive list of six who should be included in next year's Daytime Emmy nominations.

Tristan Rogers returns to General Hospital, but on Night Shift

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 22nd 2008 3:21PM
Tristan RogersThere'll be another big name soap star on the second season of SOAPnet's General Hospital: Night Shift. In addition to Antonio Sabato, Jr. returning as Jagger Cates, Tristan Rogers will join Night Shift, reprising his role as secret agent Robert Scorpio, the Australian spy and former Port Charles police commissioner. His younger brother, Mac, is the current top cop in PC, so expect them to cross paths.

However, it's as the father of Dr. Robin Scorpio, played by Kimberly McCullough. Robin, who is HIV-positive, that Robert will mainly drive story. She is currently in the midst of her first pregnancy. You would imagine that Robert's back to check in on his daughter, but there's more to his Night Shift stay.

Michael Logan in TV Guide reports that a rep for Night Shift said that Robert is suffering from "a major health issue that'll have him grappling with his mortality." Instead of Robert caring for Robin -- to trying to -- the situation will be reversed. Dr. Robin will have to treat her father.

"This'll be a real departure wherever it's headed," says Mr. Rogers. "Robert and Robin will finally get a chance to connect as adults."

TV Squad Soap Report: You judge the Emmy submissions

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 5th 2008 11:02AM
TV Squad logoThe Daytime Emmys are coming. The nominations have been announced and ABC plans to broadcast the award presentation on June 20 at 8 p.m. (EST) with Sherri Shephard and Cameron Mathison sharing the hosting duties. One of the things that invariably drives soap fans nuts is not being able to see the Emmy submissions; that is, the actual shows that the Blue Ribbon Panels are seeing when they choose the Emmy winner from the set of nominees.

Well, in a landmark move -- one more reason to love the web -- the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has teamed with YouTube to create venue to see most of the nominating clips and judge for yourself. That's what I've done and I've decided to handicap the big Daytime Emmys contests. Tell me what you think, if you judge these clips the way I have.

Daytime Emmys hosts announced

by Allison Waldman, posted May 27th 2008 10:46AM
cam/shepWell, the Daytime Emmy nominations were not exactly soul-stirring -- lots of repeat nominees, the same old, same old -- so the producers of the Emmy broadcast are trying to inject something new: that means new hosts. Call them the newest odd couple. Cameron Mathison will team up with Sherri Shepherd to co-host the ABC broadcast of the 35th Annunal Daytime Emmy Awards on June 20. Not coincidentally, Cameron and Sherri are ABC stars. He's Ryan Lavery on All My Children (and a former contestant on Dancing with the Stars); she's one of the five talkers on The View. And if you think they didn't ask Whoopi Goldberg first, you don't know TV.

Another fave returns to One Life to Live

by Allison Waldman, posted May 4th 2008 9:21AM
Thom ChristopherIs that Carlo Hesser I spy? It looks a lot like Hawk from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century? Actually, it's both, and his name Thom Christopher. The veteran character actor, who most recently was Colonel Dax on Guiding Light, is coming back to the soap that he's best known for, One Life to Live. In 1992, he won a Daytime Emmy for this role. Soap Opera Digest reports that Thom's will resume the role of Carlo Hesser, evil-doer extraordinare, on June 27.

Christopher's comeback comes on the heels of the major announcement, that is the return of Andrea Evans as Tina Lord Roberts after a nearly two decade absence. And One Life isn't done with the splashy returns. Susan Haskell, another former Emmy-winner (for her role as Marty Saybrooke), is also finding her way to Llanview. Never mind that her character plunged off a cliff in a van last year (when Christina Chambers played the part). You'll see, she was thrown from the vehicle and survived somehow. Trust me. Like sci-fi, soap opera deaths are not as final as you think.

Daytime Emmys add court category

Judge JudyThe Daytime Emmys have rendered their verdict: court TV shows will compete in their own Emmy award category. On April 30th, when the nominations are announced, legal shows will vie against each other in a new category meant to honor the best in court television. That means for the first time ever, Judge Judy can go up against the likes of The People's Court, Judge Alex, Divorce Court and the rest of the justice-driven syndicated real drama series currently on the air.

Regis rates lifetime achievement Emmy

Regis Philbin leaningEveryone knew that Regis Philbin is the king, now he'll have some extra hardware to prove it. Like a Lifetime Achievement Award from The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. At the upcoming 35th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, June 20 at Hollywood's Kodak Theater, NATAS will present the special honor to Regis, host of Live With Regis and Kelly, during the primetime ABC broadcast. There will be a salute to Regis, no doubt including Kelly Ripa and/or Kathie Lee Gifford, his daytime co-hosts over the years, but the details haven't been announced yet.
