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.

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 3 weeks, 1 day 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]
There are more numbers.
With a listing of their margins (and their cumulative electoral votes), here were the results from Election 2016 of what carried for Donald Trump with his Republican pickup of the presidency of the United States (* 2016 Republican pickups):
— Nebraska’s 3rd Congressional District +54.19 (cumulative 01 electoral vot…[Read more]
It’s my favorite of the reunions Alan has put together so far and I highly recommend watching it. Justin Deas … Beth Ehlers … John Driscoll …
It was good.
I also like The Locher Room’s June 10 program welcoming Guiding Light’s Mark Derwin (who played A.C. Mallet from 1990 to 1993), Morgan Englund (who played Dylan Lewis from early-1989…[Read more]
That’s because they have read the polls—those which are made public and those which are internal—and they understand the electoral arena enough to sense which political party is more likely to prevail for U.S. President here in 2020.
45th U.S. president Donald Trump is in position to become the 11th unseated president in United States histo…[Read more]
Ardejah Cat Harbin asks,
Have you ever questioned why a çertain actor, actress, or show won a Daytime Emmy?
I first watched the Daytime Emmys in 1985.
Last year was 2019.
So, I have questioned why a certain actor or actress won, in every year except one (1994), for 35 years.
DS0816 replied to the topic Tie-Breaker : Which of These Four Time Drama Series Winners is The Best? in the forum Television 1 month ago
A lot of the best comedy series and best drama series which won four times—and, in comedy, NBC’s Frasier and ABC’s Modern Family each won five time—were just rubber-stamping.
Refer to the history of what else was eligible, and that they did not win as little as once, and it makes the significance of those four wins, for this and that series,…[Read more]
A new Locher Room was published to YouTube today, Wednesday, June 3, which has Guiding Light’s Justin Deas, Frank Dicopoulos, John Driscoll, Beth Ehlers, and Fiona Hutchison. Their characters were Buzz Cooper, Frank Cooper, Coop Bradshaw, Harley Cooper, and Jenna Bradshaw.
I have not yet watched. But, I do appreciate these videos—the dis…[Read more]
The date of The 12th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, broadcast on CBS, was Thursday, August 1, 1985.
It was a year in which ABC’s All My Children led the series nominations, being represented in series, directing, writing, and all six performance categories. It won for the first time in its history the Emmy for writing. Just one from its thirteen n…[Read more]
This is the fifth nomination for Thorsten Kaye.
He received 2003 and 2004 nominations for Port Charles.
Add to that 2006 and 2009 nominations for All My Children.
Now is a 2020 nomination for The Bold and the Beautiful.
Same distinction with CBS’s The Young and the Restless! Its first nominated cast member was the late great Terry Lester in 1984. For GL, it was Judi Evans, who won that year for supporting actress.
The Daytime Emmys were still young, back then, and NBC (with Another World, Days of Our Lives, and The Doctors) and ABC (with Ryan’s Hope, most esp…[Read more]
