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.

My guess: It has to do with generally more opportunity.
Grammy. Oscar. Tony. Emmy. That was the calendar order of their completion here in 2019. Please rank them, for whatever reasons (like with the awards’ outcomes and/or the ceremonies), from 1 to 4. (Thank you!)October 6, 2019 at 10:46 pm #1203124987
Hogan Sheffer, as then-head writer, catapulted CBS’s As the World Turns to its first-ever win in the outstanding writing Emmy category in 2001. Well-earned, yes, but also overdue and much-appreciated that Sheffer was able to do what Doug Marland (1935–1993) did not.September 29, 2019 at 6:08 pm #1203112738
Nope. Ours closed a couple years ago.
Do you anticipate subscribing to Apple TV+? Why or why not?
According to Wikipedia, Apple TV+ is scheduled to launch on Friday, November 1, 2019.
Do I anticipate subscribing? I have Apple TV. I am going to look into it as the time approaches. (Reasons: Price and content.)
I will leave this question for anyone else who may want to answer.September 28, 2019 at 2:30 pm #1203110687
The Oscars to be held in 2020, for the year 2019, will be lower than 2019 (which was for the year 2018). I don’t enjoy writing that.
Do you have any remaining record and/ or video stores in your area?September 26, 2019 at 11:48 am #1203105263
My guess is no.
Two-part question: What you was favorite—and your least favorite—2018–19 prime-time Emmy win?September 22, 2019 at 7:28 pm #1203095920
It would be unfortunate if a second winner didn’t join four-time winner Peter Dinklage for having won for Game of Thrones.
Any chance with at least one of the two leads?September 4, 2019 at 10:18 pm #1203058522
• Nebraska (2013) — A
• Spotlight (2015) — A
• Lady Bird (2017) — A
• Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) — B+
• Book Club (2018) — C+
Since I don’t go to the movies often, and would like to go again to see something really good, I will ask:
Can you recommend one excellent, recent film? (Thank you.)August 24, 2019 at 12:25 pm #1203037894
Game of Thrones.
Which category most interests you with this year’s prime-time Emmy Awards?August 23, 2019 at 12:31 pm #1203036418
Ordinary People was delightful. (By comparison.)
Returning to a previous question: What was the last item you purchased which cost at least $100?
(For me, it was an Apple TV streaming device.)August 5, 2019 at 9:51 am #1203011338
The thread has gone a month without a response.
Let’s see if we can get it going again.
Q: Can you name one broadcast network series to which you are looking forward as the 2019–20 season begins in September?July 26, 2019 at 10:50 am #1202997071
This is a thread that has me tempted to recall, season after season, whether there were actresses who I noted delivered Emmy worthy performances but did not get nominated. And this traces back to when I started following the Daytime Emmys with the 1984–85 television season. The Daytime Emmys were not broadcast prior. They returned on August 1, 1985, and were broadcast by CBS.
The year 1984 is when I tuned in all the daytime soaps: ABC’s All My Children, Edge of Night (which signed off that year), General Hospital, Loving, One Life to Live, and Ryan’s Hope; CBS’s As the World Turns, Capitol, Guiding Light, and The Young and the Restless; NBC’s Another World, Days of Our Lives, Santa Barbara (which premiered that year), and Search for Tomorrow.
There are a lot of soaps and a lot of years!
One of the funniest common occurrences with the Daytime Emmys have been actors and actresses who were Emmy worthy on a prior soap but did not get recognition until being on the right soap. Examples: Jess Walton was terrific as Kelly on Capitol but did not get nominated until playing Jill on The Young and the Restless; Bobbie Eakes was effective yet underappreciated as Macy on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful but didn’t receive Emmy attention until she received two well-earned nominations for playing Krystal on All My Children; and Laura Wright was marvelous as Ally on Loving but did not get a first-ever nomination until 20 years later—a difference between debuting on daytime in 1991 and winning the best-actress Emmy in 2011—for playing Carly on General Hospital.
Some more names I will add (in addition to those mentioned by FreemanGriffin): All My Children’s Tonya Pinkins (a Tony winner in 1992 who should have also received a Daytime Emmy nomination as Livia); As the World Turns’s Renee Props (beautiful work as Ellie particularly with the 1989–90 season); Guiding Light’s Audrey Peters (sublime and, to some extent, taken for granted as Reva’s mother Sarah) and Tina Sloan (who should have been nominated, especially with the early parts, for Lillian’s breast-cancer storyline from the 1991–92 season); and One Life to Live’s Brenda Brock (who was introduced in the storyline in which Erika Slezak’s Viki went to Wild West and, from my memory, should have been acknowledged for her luminous performance from the 1988–89 season) and Patricia Elliott (a 1973 Tony winner who, as Renee, took over from Phyllis Newman and was greatly consistent in excellence; she was especially Emmy worthy during the 1991–92 season for work opposite Thom Christopher’s Carlo Hesser, the supporting-actor Emmy winner from that season).July 22, 2019 at 12:55 am #1202989287
Some of the people listed were actually expected to make the cut. That was considered incomprehensible for the performance to not be nominated. An example is Kate Nelligan’s 1991 Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in Barbra Streisand’s The Prince of Tides.July 15, 2019 at 4:19 pm #1202976393
I can’t answer this without getting into U.S. politics. But I will put it another way: There is a bipartisan effort in destruction in many areas which are of concern to the nation and its people.July 15, 2019 at 9:21 am #1202975736
I would like to see breakthrough nominations for actors people here figure aren’t going to experience. That the focus is elsewhere.
(I am thinking, first and foremost, of a nomination for lead actor in a drama series for Freddie Highmore in ABC’s The Good Doctor.)
