Program Cover at Emmys-- nice ad for Vegas.
I'm pissed. Guess what? I wish they would have skipped the Daytime Emmys this year. They have been dwindling year after year-- usually no network willing to pick them up. CBS took them this year and I guess it's because VEGAS paid them to air their infomercial. I would rather have had the soap awards done online...or on the radio. I don't need to see Elvis dancers or Marie Osmond botch her lip syncing. They didn't even have clips of the soap actors material. But more bitching later. Here's the awards:
Jonathan Jackson won for best supporting actor on GH...brought his kids up on stage.
Young and the Restless won for best writing
Best Moment: Debbi Morgan giving a shout out to the AMC fans... at least someone cares.
Best Directing: TIE: B&B and Y&R
Britt Allen (OLD Marissa from AMC) won for best supporting younger actress. WTF She was so terrible she got FIRED from AMC!! And she beat Lexi Ainsworth?? :thud: ACID TRIP
MY FAVE Scott Clifton won best younger actor!!!
Scrubs Presented. They looked cute.
Best Actor: Michael Park from ATWT...my Canandaigua boy!! Hugs to his Mom!!
Best Actress: Laura Wright won!!!
Best Soap: Bold and the Beautiful
Well, Gladys Knight came on...cause SHE'S SOOOOOOOOOO daytime. :rolleyes: Oh, wait, we are honoring Oprah. Nice. :doubleeyeroll: Oprah couldn't even bother to be there to win her double crystal one of a kind award. PLUS she has her OWN damn cable network-- it's not like she's dead or going anywhere. Sorry, but we had enough Oprah hooplah. Gladys needed a Ricola. Her voice was sounding nasty. (vocal coach here, don't be hatin')
Well, between Vegas, Osmonds, Universal plugs, Deaf Kids and Oprah, we had about 30 min REAL show out of 2 hours. AND about 10 minutes of soaps NO CLIPS!! NO anything!!!!!! SUCKED. Now, I know we should all be groveling and grateful for ANYTHING we get ...but this was atrocious. Like I said, don't bother if it's going to be insulting to the stars and the fans...Guess it was a good variety show to promote Vegas and gameshows..other than that? ugh
They went SO FAST though the soaps categories and yet had time for a 'trip to Universal"?? Scott Clifton couldn't even talk for a full minute? NO CLIPS of actors/shows work shown??!!
No "In Memoriam" for stars who have passed away?????????? FOR SHAME!
Susan Lucci's daughter Liza is so TALL next to her!! LOL Her tribute was cute... Shemar was nice and a little drunk. Loved all her "weddings"... "DAYTIME Television is alive and well and look at all the talent in this room tonight"! FANS ON FIRE!! You said it.
