    Daytime Emmy winner Julianne Moore – who won for As The World Turns in 1988 for her dual roles as Frannie Hughes and her identical (british) twin half-sister Sabrina has become the first ever actor or actress to win a Daytime Emmy and go on to win an Oscar! I’ve loved Ms. Moore since 1985, when I first saw her on ATWT! (: She gave a lovely gracious speech.

    I could see someone like Chandler Massey – if he ever returns to acting – winning an Oscar in the future. There seems to be a 3-4 year rule with daytime: with pretty much no exceptions, anyone who stays on their soap for more than 3-4 years never goes on to stardom in primetime or movies. Ms. Moore was on ATWT for 3 years (1985-1988), and has a long history of mostly independent films on her long successful resume.

    Anyway… it was great fun watching Ms. Moore accept her Oscar!!!! (:

    Glad for her both and the daytime shows but since I haven’t watched it, how big was her role in this? Was she a guest performer or something?

    Congratulations to Julianne Moore!  I’m very happy for her.  

    Interesting observation about the three/four years on a soap.  I think that could be a little debatable depending on what qualifies as stardom.  Shemar Moore was on Y&R  for longer than that, I believe, and I’d say he’s achieved primetime stardom.  But he’s the only exception who’s coming to mind right now.

    Julianne Moore played a lead role on ATWT throughout her 3 year run. She had made her debut in 1984 in a short-term small role on The Edge Of Night.

    I had in mind Kathleen Turner, Marisa Tomei, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alec Baldwin, Matt Bomer, Marg Helgenberger (4 years on RH), Christopher Reeve, Ted Danson, Susan Sarandon, Jill Clayburgh, Olympia Dukakis, Nathan Fillion, Ryan Phillipe, Grant Show, Tichina Arnold, Yasmine Bleeth, Kate Mulgrew (o.k., she did return after her 3 years for guest appearances), Donna Mills (3 years on Love Is a Many Splendored Thing), David Selby, David Birney, Tyne Daly (6 months on GH), Leonard Nimoy, Ellen Burstyn, Kim Delaney, Meg Ryan, Marcia Cross, Phylicia Rashad… just a few that come quickly to mind who went on to star in hit television series or had some movie stardom. All but one of these spent less than 3 years. Judith Light did spend six years on OLTL and Brynn Thayer spent I think 4? Julia Duffy was on The Doctors for 4 years, I think…

    Anyway…loved Julianne Moore’s performance in Still Alice and am so glad she won!!! (:

    Congrats Julianne Moore. That’s a fun trivia question.

     

    Which female Daytime Emmy winner has the best chance of joining her?

    Marisa Tomei isn’t a daytime Emmy winner – that was a list of some actors and actresses who went on to some stardom in primetime and movies. (btw, besides Tomei, Susan Sarandon, Olympia Dukakis and Ellen Burstyn all won Oscars after their time in daytime. I’d have to think about male actors who may have done the same. Well, Morgan Freeman had a one day role on Ryan’s Hope!).

    Which female Daytime Emmy winner has the best chance of joining her? Why, Alison Sweeney, of course! (; ha ha ha! (It COULD happen!) (:

    (I would love to see Maura West in movies!)

    Well, your thread mentions having won a Daytme Emmy and, later, an Oscar for acting. It also mentions the slim chances of performers who stay in daytime, with a given role/series, beyond three years with prospects of reaching stardom after daytime.

    This doesn’t sound encouraging; but, I would say “no one.”

    The daytime soaps are now anemic. (Just four exists on network television.) For anyone currently, or who was on within the last five years, I would say that to later win an Oscar for acting would necessitate not staying in daytime for long. (Get out after no later than three years.)

    :

    Um… Amber Tamblyn? Vanessa Marcil? Those are just two examples, but there have been plenty of soap actors who made it big in primetime… Judith Light is another one.  Shemare Moore is another… I do agree that 3-4 years seems to be the standard now in which actors either leave daytime for other projects or they stay with soaps for long-term.     I am of the belief that if you are talented enough and work hard enough you can overcome any misconceptions about soap work and have a long career in film or TV.

    I don’t think the big issue with people achieving success on a bigger stage is really about talent.  These days it seems just ignorant to discriminate against a soap actor (who works harder than any other genre of actor out there) in terms of ability.  But I think a lot of projects, maybe not so much primetime but certainly movies, are helmed or funded by people who don’t want the association that their project stars a soap opera star.  Get a superstar, get a critical starling, get a fresh face.  Those options all seem preferable to soap opera star.  It’s too bad, but I think it’s true.  

    In terms of who stands the best chance of joining Julianne Moore and winning an Oscar to go with her Daytime Emmy(s), my best guess is Sarah Michelle Gellar.  If you eliminate the women who are still currently on soaps and seem to be staying there and the women who haven’t established themselves much outside of soaps (and of course the women who never won the Emmy, deserved or not), there are very few choices.  SMG isn’t on a great track now, with a couple of shows over the last few years that haven’t gotten a second season, but she’s one of the few Daytime Emmy winners who is really well known and who people first think of in a context beyond soaps.  The othe woman who comes to mind is Anne Heche, who I think is still considered a prestige talent even if she’s not a big draw in any context.

    A couple of potential nominees for this year that I would see going on to do big things are Kim Matula and Camila Banus.  Both are beautiful and very talented with great presence.

    No, and it was a rather upsetting snub by the Academy.  What were they thinking?!

    Actually on a more serious note, I (like EmmyLoser) think that Sarah Michelle Gellar has the best chance at the moment.  She and Reese Witherspoon were initially contemporaries, and I think SMG’s career could blossom on the big screen in a similar trajectory to RW’s assuming she finds the right role and is interested in that direction for her career.

    By the way: Had Melissa Leo won the younger-actress Daytime Emmy, as she was nominated there when it was first introduced (as “Ingenue”) in 1985, she would be sharing this distinction with Julianne Moore.
