I was originally the No.9 member when Tom O'Neil launched GOLDDERBY back in the spring of 2001. Many other members, throughout this more-than-a-decade period, have been superb at having contributed insightful and valuable informationâ€”along with their perspectivesâ€”on the topics that have been discussed. It has all made for a pleasurable and high-quality Web site.

Helen Hayes and Maggie Smith spring to mind. (Right now, I am not thinking of ever possibly applicable recipient as you had asked. But, both Hayes and Smith won their first Oscars in lead followed by their second in supporting.)

I am not surprised by the exit.
I am not surprised by the recast.
I am not generally tuning in the network daytime soaps like I used to. So, I cannot opine on specific qualities on NBC’s Days of Our Lives.
It is difficult not to perceive a form of politics playing a role in this. Some will say politics is everywhere. But, I would guess that Days…[Read more]
From the Facebook page of Alan Locher:
“Guiding Light — The One You’ve Been Waiting For! Please join Maeve Kinkead (Vanessa Lewis), Rachel Miner (Michelle Bauer), Ellen Parker (Maureen Bauer) and Tina Sloan (Lillian Raines) on Wednesday, August 12th at 3:00PM EST in The Locher Room.”
I enjoy the analyses and criticisms from GoldDerby forum members. But, I did not watch enough of the 2019–20 television season to weigh in with opinions on these nominations. When it comes to the analyses and criticisms, and from getting a good sense of what people have observed and evaluated, I am old enough to recognize that this is familiar. I…[Read more]
DS0816 replied to the topic Daytime Emmys: Should the Digital Dramas Compete with the Soaps @ Daytime Emmys? in the forum Daytime TV 3 months, 1 week ago
The Daytime Emmys are now meaningless.
I write this because there are barely any soaps [drama series] left on ABC, CBS, and NBC.
The Daytime Emmys’ prestige—for those who think there was ever any in the first place—is gone.
I don’t care what National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) does with their Daytime Emmy Awards. What I want…[Read more]
Coming Friday, July 17, 2020, at 03:00 p.m. ET:
The Locher Room will welcome Rick Hearst, Sonja Satra, and Frank Beaty who played the triangle of Alan–Michael Spaulding, Lucy Cooper, and Brent Lawrence/Marian Crane on CBS’s Guiding Light.
That storyline played out 25 years ago as it was dominant in 1995. Beaty received an Emmy nomination for sup…[Read more]
Kirk Geiger and Chris L. McKenna.
I like Chris a lot. He was Joey Buchanan to Ryan Phillippe playing Billy Douglas with One Life to Live’s storyline about Billy being gay and the AIDS storyline. That was the 1992–93 television season.
A good Locher Room.

DS0816 replied to the topic What are you binge-watching to get through the pandemic and why? in the forum Television 4 months, 1 week ago
The last thing I binge-watched was The Baker and the Beauty. This was on Hulu (to which I have a commercial-free subscription). I am sorry ABC canceled it. And given the fact the only thing I make a point of watching on that network on a regular basis is The Good Doctor, this fun series—and it was well-crafted, -produced, -directed, -written, a…[Read more]
I am in no position to give an opinion on, or make any predictions for, the 47th Daytime Emmy Awards. (I did not watch enough.)
I will comment that it would not surprise me if Bryton James and Christel Khalil, who plays siblings Devon and Lily on CBS’s The Young and the Restless, win in the supporting-acting races.
It has to do with an impact t…[Read more]
I don’t go back as far as you do.
The first Daytime Emmys I watched was in 1985. The Daytime Emmys were not broadcast in 1984. And I wasn’t familiar enough to have strong opinions on who should be nominated and who should win. (In 1985, my sense of who may prevail were with the supporting-acting winners: Larry Gates of CBS’s Guiding Light and B…[Read more]
On Wednesday, June 24, 2020, The Locher Room is scheduled to be welcoming Guiding Light’s Robert Bogue (who was the second actor to have played A.C. Mallet, when the series reactivated the character in 2005) and Mandy Bruno (the last actress to play Marina Cooper and who is married to Bogue). Also joining them will be Murray Bartlett (who p…[Read more]
