Open Thread: The 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards

Yes, it's time for the big show itself! Let's see if the real Emmy voters have any overlap with the Serial Drama faux Emmy voters, who think that the following people deserve to go home with an award tonight:

Outstanding Younger Actor: Blake Berris

Outstanding Younger Actress: Kirsten Storms

Outstanding Supporting Actor: Jeff Branson

Outstanding Supporting Actress: Alicia Minshew

Outstanding Lead Actor: Peter Reckell

Outstanding Lead Actress: Debbi Morgan

You all have obviously been burned before, because the only time you thought the most deserving actor would actually wind up winning was in the case of Kirsten Storms!

Come on in and join us for a blow-by-blow discussion of daytime's biggest night (related: who here misses the Soap Opera Digest Awards?), hosted by Vanessa L. Williams and featuring the presentation of a Lifetime Achievement Award to Sesame Street, which thrills us both so much that we have nary a snarky comment to make.  We'll be updating the list of winners, after the jump!

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR:  TIE! VINCENT IRIZARRY (DAVID, AMC) and JEFF BRANSON (SHANE, GL)

OUTSTANDING YOUNGER ACTRESS:  JULIE BERMAN (LULU, GH)

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS:  TAMARA BRAUN (AVA, DAYS)

OUTSTANDING YOUNGER ACTOR:  DARIN BROOKS (MAX, DAYS)

OUTSTANDING WRITING: UNTALENTED HACKISH BASTARDS GENERAL HOSPITAL

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS: SUSAN HASKELL (MARTY, OLTL)

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR: CHRISTIAN LEBLANC (MICHAEL, Y&R)

OUTSTANDING DAYTIME DRAMA: THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL

Damn! Debbie Morgan looks fantastic!

Elmo is a beast that can not be stopped. Sigh. I'd like to hate on him, but it's a great show and a really lovely character. I'm more of a Kermit, Big Bird and Oscar girl myself though

Ande, I so agree and they JUST showed the ad for bumpits and then, sure enough, there was JMB lookin' scary...

ande, I am with you on Elmo. I think we need a break from him. Plus, Kermit FTW, forever.

Robin is such a killjoy. I would have loved to hear Phil's thought on the trainwreck that is AMC.

I want Dr. Phil and his plastic wife to go away and never return. and she's really on the best seller list? Who's buying this crap?

I seriously can't get over how good Tyra looks (hair aside). I NEVER think she looks good.

O.M.G. This "fashion shoot" is awful! Isn't it wonderful. What the hell?

This fashion show is so embarrassing.

The cherry on top of the silly ass sundae: the shortest model and Vegas showgirl in history mugging it up like no one else. Hah!

The cheese, oh the cheese. It's Montell.

Um...that was the most disturbing segue to Feed The Children.

Okay, if they were going to waste our time with a fashion show, they should have done it with an 80s-early 90s theme, complete with clip montage. Bring on the big hair and shoulderpads!

ande, I get what you're saying about the hair- it could've been a lot better, but at least it's not all shaggy sheepdog like it was for awhile on GH.

Way to make me feel guilty producers, give me not one, but two ridiculous segments are precursors to a charity effort. Hacks!

Did that "fashion shoot" segment really just happen? Seriously? And was it actually followed up by the Feed the Children segment without even a commercial break?

My brain just broke.

I'm moved by what they are doing and the Joneses are heroes, but I find I do still have the will to snark: Geary looks like a vampire who just fed.

Nuke! Van H is stuck in the 80s, but Jake is gorgeous.

Tamara Braun for Ava?! WTF?

Having a moment of silence for Bree Williamson. The bastards.

Also, why on earth did they stop showing acting clips this early in the night????

Seriously, Louise. They can't be running over, can they? So bizarre.

I can't believe Tamara Braun won! So not expecting that.

James Scott! With great hair! Good lord he is gorgeous and he towers over power Jay Kenneth Johnson. Sigh.

Jay's hair is okay, at least he doesn't look like a crazy person.

the show only goes until 10

The best line of any awards show this year: "Let's go backstage to the K-Mart Green Room!"

That's glaor for you.

I figured if Bree didn't win that Tamara would just b/c she's so beloved in general. But man. Bree looked so sad when they cut to her for OLTL's win just now -- she knows that if she didn't get it this year, it's never happening.

Yeah, I really hate when they cut the clips. I'd much rather watch clips than a "fashion show!"

Why is Buzz Aldrin there? Wearing a medal? In public?

Tamara Braun is another overdue win type thing I think (though her reel was good). She's far from my favorite Carly but she did a good job on GH and I bet people felt she was overdue.
