<p style=”text-align: left;”>Whatever you do, don’t count Days of Our Lives out. Some great performances came out of that show this past year there were years when certain shoes didn’t have a good year but there were certain performances that stood out and got nominations and wins so I won’t allow anyone to say that about Days.</p>ReplyCopy URL

Just finished listening to today’s SOD Podcast with guest, Peter Bergman, and I’m an emotional wreck! What a beautiful, poignant interview… and the perfect lead-in to tonight’s Daytime Emmys ceremony! It’d be awesome to see him accept the Lead Actor prize (after so many years of incredible work for which he was nominated but went empty-handed; he is shamefully overdue for another win at this point) but, of course, I’m also rooting hard for Eric Martsolf and John McCook (it’s kind of mind-boggling to think that this would mark McCook’s first-ever win after numerous nominations for playing a character that has been a staple of B&B for over thirty years!).
I’ve also been going back and forth in my predix (I can’t recall either another year quite like this, where there seems to be no clear frontrunner in any of the acting categories and practically any one of the nominees could take it!). It just goes to show what a strong, competitive set of nominees we have and, also, I think it demonstrates that the panelists are paying close attention, not just to what was presented to them in the reel submissions but to the year in Daytime as a whole. So even though a lot of mystery still shrouds the entire Emmys judging process, it is comforting and leaves me feeling hopeful that it rests in good hands.ReplyCopy URL

GH got it’s 15th Drama Series Emmy, B&B got it’s second Best Actor Emmy (Scott Clifton and now John McCook), Y&R got it’s sixth Best Actress Emmy winner (Jess Walton, Michelle Stafford, Jeanne Cooper, Gina Tognoni, Eileen Davidson and now Mishael Morgan), GH got it’s 11th Supporting Actor Emmy winner (Peter Hansen, David Lewis, Gerald Anthony, Steve Burton, Stuart Damon, Rick Hearst (twice), Jonathan Jackson (twice), Chad Duell, Sean Blakemore, Max Gail (twice) and now Jeff Kober), and GH got it’s 11th Supporting Actress Emmy (Jane Elliot, Rena Sofer, Sarah Brown, Vanessa Marcil, Natalia Livingston, Genie Francis, Nancy Lee Grahn, Julie Marie Berman, Vernee Watson, Tamara Braun, and now Kelly Thiebaud).
GH got it’s first Younger Performer Emmy winner (combined gender category) and the first win for a male actor in the category.
Not sure how many times GH has gotten the Directing Team Emmy but I believe this is the third year in a row for it.
I believe this is Days’s 4th Writing Emmy win. (Have I missed any? Or is it only 3? a little hazy on this).
Ted King is the fourth B&B Guest Performer winner (Obba Babatunde, Fred Willard, Jim O’Heir and now Ted King).ReplyCopy URL

Thanks for the tabulation, Freeman.
Jumping onto what alokin was saying, the Peter Bergman interview was really good. He was very candid about the things he discussed, much like his previous appearance on the podcast. I remember last time being struck by how hard it was for him to get over being leg go from AMC. This time I was really surprised by how open he was about how tough it’s been losing so many of the times he’s been nominated, especially when he felt like he had the best reel. He told a story about losing one year and Erika Slezak coming up to him to say that she was stunned because his reel was so great and the winner’s reel was third or fourth best. It was an interesting behind-the-scenes glimpse and also, based on the details of the story, it was pretty easy to figure out what year it was and who had won. I also liked his honesty about not liking the Keemo story and essentially being as responsible as anyone for the erasure of that aspect of Jack’s past.ReplyCopy URL

^^^ Yes, I was struck too by how candid Bergman was in this interview! Poor Michael Park lol. I do have to say, Bergman’s performances in the aftermath of and years following John Abbott’s passing (in 2006) were nothing short of phenomenal; he would’ve definitely been my pick for the win, for instance, in 2008 (for his work during the year 2007).ReplyCopy URL

An interesting stat: Best Drama Series and Best Writing have only lined up 13 times in 48 years!
The trifecta (Series/Writing/Directing) has only happened four times – Ryan’s Hope (1977 and 1979), Days Of Our Lives (2017), and The Young and the Restless (2019).ReplyCopy URLNot now
