The first Emmy for the night was for Out-standing supporting actress went to Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman) of The Young and the Restless. Her acceptance speech was terrible. She said she was not being eloquent and she really wasn’t. She also said she was shocked that she won this award and that was fact was pretty obvious. Her cast mates were very happy for her.
The next Emmy for Out-standing supporting actor went to
The Younger Out-Standing supporting actor went to Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) of Days of Our Lives. The LGS team though he truly earned it this year and it looks like it will be his swan song as he has already taped his last episode and is out of there. His parents were in the audience to support him tonight. Their presence there tonight could have been a condition of his parole. He is heading back to his home state to clean up his act, do his community service and be a better man. It is a shame that Days is losing him as he truly is a talented actor who seems to have momentarily lost his way.
The Younger Out-standing supporting actress Emmy was a total shock to the LGS team. For the past year, all the team has read is complaints about this actresses whining. She is certainly the queen of whining but the committee thought that Hunter King (Summer Newman) of Y&R should take home the Emmy. This obviously wasn’t fan voted because she would not have won. She had a nice speech and her cast mates stood and applauded for her. She is a pretty girl but she needs to calm down the whining.
The Best Actor Emmy went to Anthony Geary (Luke Spencer if you live in a cave) from
The Best Actress Emmy went Maura West (Ava Jerome) of
There was a tie for BEST DAYTIME DRAMA and they announced ‘Days of our Lives,’ first. Days definitely deserved to win it but they deserved to win it alone. ALLISON SWEENEY and JAMES SCOTT gave a solid 4 months of phenomenal drama in a row with their story-line. ‘The Young and the Restless’ has only gotten interesting in the last 4 months since they got their new head writer. They had lost their matriarch and have struggled to redefine who they are until Pratt started writing story-line. Now things have gotten interesting. Had this been next year, I would have said well deserved.
Some wonderful highlights were Betty White receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award. She had everyone laughing in the audience.
There was also Fan Voted:
Best Bitch Slap and Quinn hitting Brooke won that poll.
Best Wedding Disaster and the Carly and Franco Wedding won that poll.
Bold and Beautiful - Best Writing and Directing Team.
