It's that time again. The time where soap fans find themselves either celebrating the fact that their favorites walked away with an award and think to themselves proudly and, admit it, kind of smugly, "I totally knew that they were the best" or angrily voice their displeasure with the whims of the [insert insulting adjective here] Emmy voters who did not recognize their favorite's brilliance. The time where normally personable media personalities suddenly become wooden, cheesy awards show hosts and daytime actors and actresses visibly pledge their allegiance to Team Pretty or Team Fugly.
Yes. The Daytime Emmys are here, and we could not be more excited! Because as much as we try to present ourselves as cooler-than-thou and jaded, we are shamefully and hopelessly addicted to all kinds of awards shows, and the Emmys are no exception. Even if they are obviously wrong in the head, since they gave General Hospital the most nominations, but whatever: we're totally excited!
Next Sunday, June 27th at 9 PM on CBS, the Daytime Emmys are airing live, hosted by Regis Philbin (does this make anyone else nervous? We watch Regis and Kelly at the gym because Kelly is adorable and it makes the elliptical more tolerable, but Regis is...prone to saying things that raise the ol' eyebrow, if you know what we mean, and we think you do, but just in case you don't, we mean that he's crazy), honoring Dick Clark and granting the phenomenal Agnes Nixon a Lifetime Achievement Award.
We will be marking this occasion with Emmy content all week, including your chance to vote for the actors and shows you think deserve to be winners on the big night, all leading up to the triumphant return of the Serial Drama Daytime Emmys Live Blogging Extravaganza. Join us here at next Sunday at 9 for our play-by-play commentary, snark and creative ways to say, "What would possess a person to wear such a thing?"
