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)

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?"

Wayne Brady: 'Let's Make a Deal' Winners Can Get Handsier Than the TSA (VIDEO)

Wayne Brady of 'Let's Make A Deal ' on 'The View'Wayne Brady is hosting the Daytime Emmys this year, and he has been nominated as the host of 'Let's Make a Deal.' Today on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Brady told stories about hosting 'Deal' that would not only make the nomination deserved but should qualify him for hazard pay.

When people win on 'Deal,' they get excited. That's good for the show, but bad for Brady's health. "I've been grabbed, poked, prodded, punched, slapped," said Brady. "You would think that I was going through TSA. Because sometimes the joy is too much."

Brady said sometimes when a woman wins, he has a different problem. He likes to look good in his suits on the show, but that's not an invitation for groping.

Daytime Emmy Nominations 2011: 'General Hospital' Leads the Pack

by Chris Harnick, posted May 11th 2011 10:05AM
Jonathan Jackson, Laura Wright'General Hospital' leads all soaps with 21 total Daytime Emmy nominations.

PBS leads ABC in total nominations, but ABC's 'General Hospital' -- its last remaining soap come January 2012, unless Katie Couric moves in -- leads the pack with 21 total nominations. Besides the Outstanding Drama Series nomination, stars Jonathan Jackson, Laura Wright, Maurice Benard, Nancy Lee Grahn, Jason Thompson, Chad Duell and Lexi Ainsworth all received nods from the Academy.

'The Young and the Restless' received 20 nominations, 'Sesame Street' grabbed 16, 'All My Children' got 13, and 'One Life to Live' trailed with 12. With the sting of cancellation still present, 'All My Children' picked up a Best Drama nomination, but no such luck for its star Susan Lucci.

Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek will received Lifetime Achievement Awards at the June 19 ceremony.

"In honoring Pat and Alex, we're honoring not only two of the great game shows throughout the history of television," Darryl Cohen, chairman of The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, said in a statement, "but two individuals whose talent and personality have given us an additional reason to tune in and watch."

Nominations are below.

The Daytime Emmys: Should They Stay or Should They Go?

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 18th 2011 1:00PM
EmmysYou know that old cliché about throwing a party and no one showing up? What if you threw an elaborate awards show and no one showed up?

In other words, enjoy this year's Daytime Emmys telecast in June -- because after this season, there will be just four soap operas left to contend for a slew of prizes. Which begs the question: Will there -- and should there -- continue to be a separate Daytime Emmy ceremony? And, if so, will it (and should it) continue to be televised in primetime?

The question arises, of course, because of ABC's decision to cancel two of its long-running daytime dramas, 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live.' The soap landscape was already a diminished one -- only six scripted dramas currently air in daytime -- but with ABC throwing in the towel on two more, the future of the soaps and their offshoots are in serious danger.

Almost immediately after ABC's cancellation of 'AMC' and 'OLTL,' for example, the publisher of Soap Opera Digest and Soap Opera Weekly magazines announced staff cuts were imminent and turned operations of the mags over to another publisher (American Media Inc., which publishes The National Enquirer and Shape).

Why Were 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' Canceled?

by Michael Maloney, posted Apr 15th 2011 2:00PM
Michael BrunoCombined, 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' cover more than 80 years of television and boast legions of fans, but that didn't stop ABC from announcing yesterday that the two Agnes Nixon–created soap operas will be leaving the airwaves. 'AMC' will exit in September, and 'OLTL' will air its final episode next January.

It's impossible to imagine daytime TV without Erica, Tad, Viki, Dorian and Bo, but that's exactly what we're going to have to get used to.

Why are these beloved programs leaving us? AOL TV spoke to daytime talent manager Michael Bruno, known for his Simon Cowell–esque comments as a judge on the defunct SOAPnet reality series 'I Wanna Be a Soap Star,' for some insight.

Bruno, who put stars Rebecca Budig and Bobbie Eakes on 'AMC' and currently represents Ricky Paull Goldin ('AMC') and Austin Peck ('OLTL), speaks candidly about what this loss is going to mean to the fans and to the people who work on these programs.

TV Ratings: Daytime Emmys Rise; 'Futurama' Sees Healthy Return

Daytime EmmysGood news for Daytime TV fans: According to the Live Feed, last night's Daytime Emmys ceremony was seen by a steady 5.6 million viewers, up 2.9 million viewers from last year's record-low ceremony, which aired on the CW.

Viva Las Daytime! The 2010 Daytime Emmys Ceremony Entertains

by Michael Maloney, posted Jun 28th 2010 10:40AM
Emmy AwardThere were two big winners at the 37th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy awards on Sunday night. CBS' 'The Bold and the Beautiful' repeated as Outstanding Drama Series. The other victor was the awards show itself.

Viewers were skeptical going into the program. How was it going to be both a promotional vehicle for Las Vegas and also an awards show that honored the best and brightest of daytime TV? It succeeded in both quite nicely by staying fast-paced, entertaining and organized.

The tributes to Dick Clark and soap opera creator/writer Agnes Nixon, the Lifetime Achievement award recipient, were well-researched and first rate. A-listers Ryan Seacrest ('American Idol') and Susan Lucci ('All My Children') were on hand to present the honors. Also, winners went from their seats to the podium quickly, something that helps make any awards show a success.

There were three big tributes for the night honoring Dick Clark, Agnes Nixon and 'As the World Turns.' Ryan Seacrest presented a special Emmy to Clark for his contributions to TV, including 'American Bandstand.' After a video flashback, he was saluted by live acts.

By the end of the night, the big winner of the night would be CBS, with 'The Bold and the Beautiful' winning the Outstanding Daytime Drama for the second year in a row.

Outstanding Informative Talk Show was won by 'The Doctors,' a first for that show, while 'Ellen DeGeneres' was the winner for Entertainment Talk Show. DeGeneres herself wasn't there, and another no-show was the surprise victor for Outstanding Talk Show Host, Dr. Mehmet Oz.
