Did anyone catch the press room/red carpet on Periscope?

All I know is that I'm delighted about Obba Babatunde.


Is this Mary Beth Evans' first Emmy for Kayla!? I'm so glad she finally won for that role! Good for her.

I spent an hour last night watching some reels. The one for Tyler Christooher was great. The best Nikolas is Daddy Nikolas.

Tyler is good and I'm totally on board with Tony NOT winning. That makes me very happy but confused as Tyler didn't have great stuff last year. I guess none of the actors really did.

I don't watch Days but did for years so Mary Beth deserves her win.

Shawn Blakemore? For what exactly? The man is so damn boring and Shawn is a nothing character with very little story.

Jessica? JFP and Pratt killed that character. Destroyed her with terrible writing and plot and drove her off the show. She screeched and cried her way through her final weeks.

Hunter King LOST!!! I guess her "special" casting couch talent isn't so special lately.

Bryan deserved his win even though I hate all things mob related. Out of the group, he had the best writing and story line and he mostly did it justice.

I will never understand how B&B won for best writing. lol What a joke. The Maya transgender story line is the only one that isn't the same wash, rinse, repeat same romantic triangle nonsense they've done since the show started.

Holly, the B&B writing win just kind of illustrates the problem with the whole process. They submitted episodes from Maya's storyline, which was really terrific writing (well, not at first, but they got there!), but sadly the majority of 2015 was just the usual repetition.

Louise, can you tell me what scenes were submitted for Shawn Blakemore? He's a handsome guy.. has some charisma but all I remember from 2015 was him being a lackey for Duke/Sonny, trying to shoot Jakeson and then going to prison. There was a promising romance with Jordan, but since law enforcement are EVIL and HORRIBLE, that went nowhere except to destroy poor T.J. by making him hate his hard working, hero mother.

Blakemore submitted the 5/25 and 5/26 episodes. I think they were when Jordan told him TJ was really his son and then he pled guilty to attempted murder.

Can't argue with Mary Beth Evans's win, given that she's been terrific in every soap role I've seen her in, but I was SO hoping for KdeP or Finola. I was in the "anybody but Geary" camp, just because I was so over TG by the time he left (somewhat begrudgingly I will acknowledge he gave some top-notch performances in 2016), so Tyler Christopher's win was a welcome surprise.

I had not paid attention to the digital categories; interesting that MBE was up against Liz Hubbard, who played her mother on As the World Turns. (And poor Liz, who got robbed by never winning for ATWT despite multiple nominations, lost again.)

How must it feel to be the writing team from Days, or the directing team from Y&R, and be the only ones out of the four soaps NOT nominated? Just decide that all four get nominated every year, now that we're down to only four soaps, and be done with it.
