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.

One more thing: What about Chaka Khan? She is 66. She is a legend. She has a powerful and luminous voice. Incredible range. Been active nearly 50 years. Has she been forgotten? Or did the Kennedy Center Honors turn into being too much what had been the case with the Golden Globes. (Meaning, as film critic Peter Travers described, “star f***ing.”)May 24, 2019 at 5:35 pm #1202907549
Except for album, c. 2010, I got the sense years from ago that Doris Day wanted to be gone from entertainment. That it played out for her. I think she would have said no to The Kennedy Center Honors. (I wouldn’t be surprised if it was offered—and that she did say no.)
I have wanted Joni Mitchell honored for a number of years. I don’t know what happened there. She had a stroke. Would she be up for it? Would it be offered?
Last year The Kennedy Center Honors included a tribute to Hamilton. When I learned that was planned, I chose to avoid the ceremony.
It is pretty tough to still care about The Kennedy Center Honors. Perhaps 2019 will be different—and for the better.May 20, 2019 at 4:40 pm #1202902217
My least favorite episode all season. My grade: B. And here is the reasoning:
1)Why not use the dragon to burn the Unsullied Jon? You can ride them too and they listens to targaryens.
2)BRAN?! Nope. They all had better stories then him being pushed out a window, parapalegic, three eyed raven. Should have been Sansa.
3)Tyrion is the MVP of the guys this season. That was skillful negotiating.
4)It was that easy to kill her?
5)So all that lead up about Jon’s true parents and he gets sent to the Wall?! BS.
6)Arya gets a good ending though
I agree with points 3 to 6.
(Thank you!)May 19, 2019 at 12:00 pm #1202899906
As I do every year, I need the help of my Goldderby pals in this year’s Emmy voting. As an Emmy voter in the Writers Branch, I am overwhelmed each May with screeners from comedy shows that I haven’t had time to watch this season. I’m asking you to offer the ONE comedy script that you would cheer if it got a nod on nomination day. Please don’t give me a list of two or three scripts — I’m looking for help on the ONE about which you feel most passionate. As always, thank you all in advance for your help on this — my goal is to submit the most responsible ballot I can, and I couldn’t do it without you. Thanks.
I haven’t watched enough to offer enough of an informed suggestion.
I do want to thank you, once again for your consideration, helmetz.May 14, 2019 at 4:47 pm #1202894192
I loved what becomes of Richard Splett (played by Sam Richardson). That was a really good character.May 13, 2019 at 8:34 am #1202892026
It’s a three-part question.
I want to answer in this way:
Another way of asking:
Who will win?
Jon Snow. (That is my answer to the first two questions.)
Yes. (This regards the kingdoms.)
(By the way: numerous reasons.)

I haven’t been watching the daytime dramas enough to weigh in with informed opinions. But, I want to mention this: I think it is really good when a given series wins in the same year the Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series, and Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series. There have been 46 Daytime Emmy Awards. This has happened four times with three separate series (from three separate networks): ABC’s Ryan’s Hope (1977, 1979), NBC’s Days of Our Lives (2018), and CBS’s The Young and the Restless (2019). It is good because, if a given series had a great year of really delivering overall, it makes sense to have the three align to that outstanding drama series.May 5, 2019 at 4:00 am #1202880335

4) “Ray of Light”
5) “Live to Tell”
Same question for Elton John.May 5, 2019 at 3:17 am #1202880322
People still mistakenly celebrate Lucci’s win as a charitable ” thanks for being such a good sport all these years ” reward. I call B.S. Lucci earned that award hands down because she gave the best performance by a lead actress that year.She submitted two powerhouse tapes that showcased her strengths.Explosive,impossible to deal w/ bitch diva in heels one moment and then mother courage the next. The writing was exceptional but Lucci’s work took it to another level.Every emotion was nailed w/o grandstanding. Her fellow nominees didn’t stand a chance. Bianca’s intervention was Lucci’s magnum opus as an actress. Bravura.
I had a period of not following the daytime dramas with the 1998–99 season due to some personal matters which required more of my time.
Prior to the 1999 Daytime Emmys, the 26th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, I read from Soap Opera Weekly that the best reel came from Susan Lucci.
This is to keep in mind that nominations were: Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) in The Young and the Restless (CBS); Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda) in As the World Turns (CBS); Susan Lucci (Erica) in All My Children (ABC); Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) in The Young and the Restless (CBS); and Kim Zimmer (Reva) in Guiding Light (CBS).
I was not going to try to predict.
I had, by then, become cynical. I figured Lucci had not won not because of better reels from others who did prevail. (No—not with every single time. Not really.) I figured it was because Lucci’s nominations count had built up to a point that her not winning was actually good business for the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Meaning, it was good for continuing to draw in viewers, year after year, for the live ceremonies. (The Daytime Emmys actually hit No. 1 in the early-1990s.) And to finally prize Lucci could become the death knell for NATAS.
I was glad it finally happened.
This is art.
The overall work from those 40-plus years of Lucci—who may have been given the greatest creation of a character to play in the history (thus far) of the U.S.’s daytime dramas—was too original, unique, and great to not end up winning at least once.
By the way: The lead-actress Emmy was first given in 1974. From 1974 to 1996, there was only one person from CBS who won that category. That was Kim Zimmer. Three of her four Emmys (1985, 1987, and 1990). Starting in 1997, CBS dominated the category until 2004. The only non-CBS winner was Susan Lucci (1999).May 1, 2019 at 10:44 am #1202875817

Just in case you did not already know: So far there has not been one year on record in which one specific series won the Daytime Emmys for outstanding drama series, lead actor, and lead actress. We are awaiting a break in that pattern.April 30, 2019 at 12:39 am #1202873482
Cersei is gonna damage and harm a lot of people before she dies. That’s a given. With Qyburn by her side Rhaegal is already doomed in my opinion.
There is a sense of a tide of history with HBO’s Game of Thrones. With that mentioned, Cersei will lose. She is very much her father’s daughter—and he was murdered by Cersei’s brother, who both dismissed, Tyrion. Of all the Lannisters, the smartest one has always been Tyrion. But the politics of that family alone resulted in him being a castoff. (They needed him.) What is also smart of Tyrion is he knew the Lannisters would not come out on top. This “Last War,” that is Cersei vs. Dany, is already obvious. We viewers will get to continue to enjoy the journey.April 27, 2019 at 7:16 pm #1202869713
Since I have been following the Daytime Emmy Awards since 1985, one name pops out: Kevin Mambo. He won two younger-actor Emmys, in 1996 and 1997, for playing Marcus Williams on CBS’s Guiding Light. (I didn’t think he would win once let alone twice.)
