It is Soap Dish time again my friends and this week I am dishing about the 2012 Daytime Emmy nominations! They were announced last week and I of course have some thoughts about them, as well as what the heck is going with the show being televised.
I am not going to give you the full list of nominees here because, well it came out like a week ago and I am pretty sure you already know who is nominated. I want to say that I am thrilled at how many nods General Hospital got as well as Days of Our Lives. Those are my two shows and I love them so it thrills me to see them leading the pack.
However I was a little sad that there were not more nominations for the now cancelled All My Children and One Life To Live. Although I didn’t want them religiously I did tune in for the last few months of each show and though there was some amazing work on each show that was not rewarded. I mean seriously Roger Howarth did some amazing work and he didn’t get a nod, so not happy about that at all. I just felt like there should have been more, for those two shows.
The nominations are announced,which is great but the questions looms will the awards even actually air live on television. As of now there is not a network currently attached to televise the awards show, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday June 23rd. Although I used to love watching the Daytime Emmys I must admit the past couple of years have sucked. The focus is no longer on Soap Operas and quite frankly that is the main reason I tune in. I want to see my favorite stars dressed to kill, I want to see show clips you know all that good stuff. So that being said if it is not on TV well I guess I won’t miss much.
That is this week’s edition of Soap Dish be sure to check back next week to see what I am dishing about.
