Regis Philbin Will Host Daytime Emmys

by Allison Waldman, posted May 17th 2010 6:15PM
If you want a host for the Daytime Emmy Awards who not only knows the business, but is a true living legend, you can't do any better than Regis Philbin. That's why the news today that Regis Philbin will be the host of the 37th Annual Daytime Emmys was such great news: Reege is daytime, don't you know?

He's the man. He's an Emmy winner for hosting 'Live With Regis and Kathie Lee' and for his work on 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.' Philbin has even acted on a pair of daytime soaps -- 'All My Children' and 'Ryan's Hope.'

The Daytime Emmys will be broadcast on CBS from the Las Vegas Hilton on Sunday, June 27, 9-11 PM ET. CBS may be the same network that has canceled two soaps in two years -- 'Guiding Light' in 2009 and 'As the World Turns' this year -- but it has stepped up to restore the luster of the Daytime Emmys after last year's show was relegated to cable. Booking Philbin is a classy move for CBS, especially since he's not a star on that network.

2010 Daytime Emmys: Nominations Announced

by Andrew Scott, posted May 12th 2010 8:50AM
As the World Turns'All My Children' and 'General Hospital' were among the top soaps nominated for Daytime Emmys this morning.

The long-running ABC soaps earned slots in the coveted Daytime Drama category, where they are joined by 'The Bold and the Beautiful' and 'The Young and the Restless.'

The soon-to-be-canceled 'As the World Turns' had a nice showing in the Lead Actor category, earning noms for stars Jon Lindstrom and Michael Park. Rounding out the category: Peter Bergman and Doug Davidson for 'The Young and the Restless' and 'Days of Our Lives'' James Scott.

Meanwhile, the soaps were equally divided in the Lead Actress category, where nominations were handed out to Sarah Brown ('General Hospital'), Crystal Chappell ('Guiding Light'), Bobbie Eakes ('All My Children'), Michelle Stafford ('Young and the Restless') and past winner Maura West ('As the World Turns').

2010 Daytime Emmys: We Predict the Nominees

by Allison Waldman, posted May 10th 2010 10:00AM
soony_alexis_general_hospital_abcOn Wednesday, nominations for the 37th Annual Daytime Emmys will be announced, and we here at TV Squad are placing early bets in all of the top categories. Will last year's winner, 'The Bold and the Beautiful,' triumph again? Will Peter Bergman ('The Young and the Restless') earn his 16th nomination? Read our fearless predictions below, and don't forget to tune in to CBS when the Daytime Emmys air live Sun., June 27 at 9PM.

Outstanding Drama Series
'Days of Our Lives'
'The Bold and the Beautiful'
'General Hospital'
'The Young and the Restless'

The likeliest nomination here is 'General Hospital,' because it produced another terrific, big-event episode -- the hospital carnival, in which a car crashed through the crowd. It was an impressive and unique moment for daytime TV, so look for it to translate into a Drama Series nomination. Meanwhile, 'The Young and the Restless' offered up Colleen's death, which was moody and sad, and should be good enough to earn the seven-time champ a spot in the final four. 'Days' has been rising in Emmy estimation in the last few years, and is looking set for a nomination after the episode about Grace's death. And after last year's big win, expect 'Bold and the Beautiful' to round out the category.

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.

Here's the full Guiding Light Emmy tribute

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 9th 2009 1:07PM
A couple of weeks ago at the Daytime Emmy Awards, there was a special tribute to Guiding Light, ending its 72 year run (on radio starting in 1937, TV since 1952) next Friday. Due to time, the network couldn't show the entire tribute video from the ceremony. Here it is.

I think there's too much emphasis on recent characters, but that's just an old fogey talking I guess, and there are some great classic scenes too (for a fan, this video could be an hour long and we wouldn't complain). I love that they included Charita Bauer and Chris Bernau, the original (and best) Alan Spaulding.

Wait a second: Rachael Ray won Best Talk Show?

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 31st 2009 12:33PM
Rachael RayAs Allison told you earlier this morning, Rachael Ray won the Emmy for Best Talk Show last night. And to that I'd like to ask, have any of the people who voted for it actually watched the show?

I like cooking shows and light, mindless entertainment, so I would think that Ray's show would be a natural for me, but...gah.

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.
