Are You Ready For Some Emmys?
Tonight's the night! The Daytime Emmy awards ceremony is tonight, and the Serial Drama Daytime Emmys Live Blogging Extravaganza starts at 7 PM with red carpet arrivals. We're so excited, we could almost imitate Nell in a tunnel underneath a 1980s nightclub, or ride into a morning room on a horse.
To get the Emmy Day festivities started, I thought I'd link to a bunch of previous wins for the two shows I watch. Well, it turns out that the last time Days won something videotape hadn't yet been invented, or something, or maybe no obsessive, tape-stashing Days fan has a YouTube account. I don't know. Anyway, that leaves GH. Therefore, here are some of General Hospital's many, many previous wins. Most were deserved. Most.
- Tony Geary kind of kicks ass at the whole Emmy-winning thing. Here he is winning for best actor in 1982 (I still need some help understanding that perm), 1999, and last year.
- Back when it was still kicking ass, General Hospital wins for best show in 1997.
- Steve Burton wins for best supporting actor in 1998.
- Stuart Damon wins for best supporting actor in 1999.
- Sarah Brown wins for best supporting actress in 2000.
- Maurice Benard wins for best actor in 2003.
- Vanessa Marcil wins for best supporting actress in 2003.
- GH wins for best writing in 2003.
- Chad Brannon wins for younger actor in 2004.
- Rick Hearst wins for best supporting actor in 2004.
- Natalia Livingston wins for supporting actress in 2005.
- And my personal favorite (which I've already linked to in a comment this week but I swear I think it's worth adding to every post), a win which falls into the "not well-deserved" category in my humble opinion, is GH winning best drama in 2005. The clip is awesome because it features Eric Braeden blessing himself, Aretha Franklin being forced to make a terrible "respect" joke, and Jill Farren Phelps bellowing and then getting cut off after like 7 seconds.
Okay, I lied, there is one thing for Days fans. It's not a win, though this tribute to MacDonald Carey might be even better than that. Sniff. Dr. Horton.
