"No Plans to Televise Daytime Emmys"

While tweeting about AMC and OLTL's eligibility at this next Daytime Emmy event, producer JimRomanovich (@JimRomanovich) tweeted: 

"We have no plans at this time to produce The Daytime Emmys"

The Emmy ceremony will go on however, just not in a televised venue. Both AMC and OLTL will be eligible as they aired shows in 2011. I'm hoping that the "at this time" means we can perhaps wish for a show?? It seems like such a shame to the actors and also the other shows in daytime to miss their chance in the spotlight (and for the fans to watch them). Last year there was a lot of criticism regarding the show being one long "Vegas commercial" which was done in part, to pay for the production. 

This, coupled with the Soap Net News (below) and OLTL-- we have to face the facts that soaps may just be on the last of their life supports.

I remeber the Emmy's when they aired during the afternoon. Why can't they go back to that?

Wonder if "One Life to Live" will get a crack at some Emmys for the 2013 show since there were two weeks' worth of airings into 2012?

Probably not.

That past 5 years the daytime awards were terribly done.
I don't care they won't be on. Back in the day, EVERYONE came, she saw interviews as they walked in, and everything was somewhat fair.
Times have changed.
