Days of Our Lives was the surprise victor for Outstanding Drama Series at the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, held Sunday June 16 on the HLN Network. But it was also a huge night for Bold & the Beautiful, which took statues in four of the major categories.
Talk about starting this column off with a bang! The Daytime Emmy Awards were just held Sunday, as everyone knows, and while everyone was expecting B&B or even GH to take top honors, Days quietly slipped in and won Outstanding Drama Series! It’s the show’s first Emmy in this category in a long thirty-eight years and I have to tell you, I was beyond ecstatic to hear their name called as the winner. Long-time fans know that Days never really got that Emmy love in later years and sometimes were shut out completely. We fans would wait for the nominations to be announced and oftentimes, we would have to settle for being happy with whatever nods our show managed to get – and be resigned to not seeing our Salemites on the stage. It’s VERY nice to see the tide turn!

Hi, Soap Fans. It’s been a while since I’ve been here. Some of you may remember me, as I have a long history with Soaptown. I wrote for this wonderful site from Fall of 2004 until last summer, and over the years covered As The World Turns, General Hospital, occasionally The Bold and the Beautiful, and for the bulk of my tenure, The Young and the Restless. I have watched daytime dramas all my life, and the genre holds a very special place in my heart. So when Megs offered me the opportunity to vent some my frustrations about this show, I had to say yes. Perhaps if enough of us speak out, someone, somewhere at CBS will finally hear us. But I won’t hold my breath. Because it would seem that The Man In Charge can’t see or hear anyone but the simpering whispers of a certain aging blonde.
Oh yeah, Carly. Look what happens when you try to take control of a situation and run out of patience at the same time. Sonny and Carly had decided that Franco need not walk the earth and approached Sean about taking him out – and not to the ballgame. After Sean aimed a weapon at the guy at the courthouse (okay, really? You can’t bring a pocket poker game into a courthouse, let alone a gun), and the Q mansion and not having any luck, Sonny decided to set aside the hit for now. But Carly being Carly, she ain’t got time for that!
And the Emmy goes to…….tonight is the big night for daytime and the stars of daytime will step out for the 40tth Annual Daytime Emmy Awards live from The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California to be televised live in all time zones on HLN starting at 8PMEST/5PMPST. Lauren Koslow from DOOL will be doing again her take on fashion for the evening. She will give her approach of who is wearing what and who looks hot from the gowns, shoes and even the jewelry. And lets not forget the men the very sexy hot men!
Was it just me, or did things seem a bit random in Genoa City this week? Will Nick tell Jack and Summer the truth? Will Michael and Lauren save their marriage? Can Dylan put Avery in his past? Why is Billy gambling? Who is this Hillary that Cane just hired? How is someone getting Neil’s private biz posted without anyone being able to identify the culprit? And is Kevin a complete idiot?

Memo to Pete Courtlandt, get more security for your momma’s mansion. Colby Chandler cha-cha-ed right in through the garden French doors, right under your nose, and right into your bed. Of course, when you found her, you didn’t put up much of a fight before collapsing on said bed and dancing one of the wildest sheet monkey dances ever seen on a soap!
Michael’s first episode premiered Wednesday June 12th and we thought that this would be a great opportunity for him to speak about the return – his return to the series and his character.
CBS Daytime has announced a week-long Twitter week and leading up to the Daytime Emmy Awards, from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, June 16 from 8:00 – 10:00 PM ET on HLN.
Wow, Fen does know how to sincerely smile. Of course it took a new car as a graduation gift to elicit that reaction, but still, I was surprised he was able to do it. And while he scored a new ride, Summer received pretty much every item available for sale for her graduation–but is she about to get a big surprise?
