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

Comments

Liz's coat dress is heinous. Someone should explain to flat chested girls that ribcage and sternum is NOT attractive and are not meant to be put on display. If you don't have breasts, too bad, please cover up.

I meant, That's glamor for you.

@ande mcbeal, I think he's making the rounds because of the moon landing

OMG Tyra just said she learned about the birds and the bees from Luke and Laura...creepy

Buzz Aldrin standing up awkwardly has been my favorite moment of the night.

I agree that Tamara was overdue, LB. I also think she has a ton of goodwill with voters, because she has been on so many shows and seems really well liked.

I *hate* when I care about this stupid stuff. This'll take a while for me to get over. Alas.

I can't even remember what else is coming up that's exciting. Oh, Best Actress is a worthy category, actually, I'll hold onto that!

Oh great. The Melrose Place remake. Who thought this was a good idea anyway? Let's remake Dallas or Knots Landing. How about you start with great source material instead of simply mediocre.

By the way, what's up with the porn star doing the backstage interviews???

Congrats to Tamara, but as I said on the thread about the supporting actress nominees, she owes a thank you to SN and MBE. In part because SN pushed for her to be cast, in part because they both played key parts in her submission reel, and in part because their characters were totally sacrificed for the glory of Ava.

That said, TB really did an awesome job and deserved the win.

Uh - this is the WTF emmys? Did the guy from Days just win? Weirdness.

Love the opening number. Almost makes up for the crapfest that was the red carpet.

Darin Brooks...

...won
...swore
....ran off stage flustered
...dressed like a stockbroker

SO MUCH WTF.

And why are they rushing? Everybody is speed talking and it is making me nervous/making me think of Micro Machine commercials.

Yeah, I think they're all given like 8 seconds to talk. Way too rushed.

And I definitely have to re-watch that Darin Brooks win. Bizarre.

I knew this would be a weird emmy when AMC, Days and B&B were the soaps nominated for best drama even though Y&R and OLTL were eligible. SO MUCH WTF - it started off well and has veered into strange territory with Darin Brooks.

I can't stop laughing at the WTFery! I'm going to end up pulling a muscle at this rate.

Sandra Oh makes most things better.

Not her dress, unfortunately.

She really does! If only she weren't wearing a purple satin sack.

I love Sesame Street. Which makes me a dork, but STILL, it is awesome.

Sesame Street is the best. I hope it never ends.

BA does clean up well. I'll give him that much.

Bree got robbed. That is all.

The Sesame Street stuff is making me misty-eyed. Mr. Hooper's death? Ouch. OUCH.

And look at Maria, she's still stunning!

Nothing tops Sesame Street.

That poll just had a bunch of Alicia fans because she shouldn't of even been nominated in Supporting Actress and on top of that comparing her tape to the other actress she should not of ever won, thank god that did not happen.

Best clips of the night by far... SESAME STREET!!!!!

1 2 3 4 5..6 7 8 9 10...11 12 :-) The kids, the muppets, the guest stars, and I am in tears remembering Mr. Hooper.

I may be a snarky soap lover/hater, but Mr. Hooper's death was a defining point in my young life. Bravo to the whole gang at Sesame Street then and now, here and world wide. They are heroes.
