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.

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.)July 15, 2019 at 9:16 am #1202975726
For a series with the word Young in its title, there a lot of characters looking quite old.July 6, 2019 at 12:28 pm #1202964139
By the ways: NBC’s St. Elsewhere lost in 1983 and 1984 to the third and fourth wins for NBC’s Hill Steet Blues; in 1985 and 1986 to CBS’s Cagney & Lacey; in 1987 to NBC’s L.A. Law; and in 1988 to ABC’s thirtysomething.July 6, 2019 at 12:25 pm #1202964137
First that comes to my mind: St. Elsewhere (NBC, 1982–1988).
It was Emmy nominated for outstanding drama series with each of its six seasons. Ed Flanders and William Daniels combined for three wins in lead actor. James Coco (really a guest performance) won in supporting actor. Doris Roberts (really a guest performance) won in supporting actress. It won directing and it won twice for writing.June 30, 2019 at 7:11 pm #1202957170
I have followed the Daytime Emmys since 1985. They were off television at least a couple years. The 1984 Daytime Emmys were controversial because names of the winners were released, in advance of the non-live ceremony, and this was unprofessional. But, the Daytime Emmys returned and was broadcast August 1, 1985.
Kim Zimmer won the first of her four Emmys on the day. In 1987 she won her second. I thought that would be year Susan Lucci, at which time it marked her eighth nomination, would finally prevail.
It was for Erica Kane’s role with reaction to the drug addiction of her brother Mark Dalton. That storyline won Kathleen Noone, playing Ellen Shepherd Chandler, her supporting-actress Emmy. (One of the best wins that category had ever had!) The late Mark LaMura, who played Mark, was terrific. He was nominated for supporting actor in 1988. But, in response to your question, Lucci was terrific. And I thought that would be the timing, the 1986–87 television season, for her to win. It took twelve more years.June 24, 2019 at 10:02 am #1202949784
I don’t know.
Q: If you were to be granted one wish…who or what would receive a nomination for a 2018–19 prime-time Emmy?May 28, 2019 at 10:06 am #1202913625

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.
