Daytime Emmy Nominations And Awards 2011

Well with everything going on in the soap world this should be interesting.

This is the 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. All My Children and One Life to Live have been on TV longer than the awards. Just something I noticed. The event is at the Las Vegas Hilton. The host is Wayne Brady. I don't know who he is. I've never seen him before. He seems to have a connection with his mother. Maybe I'll Google him later, but so far I'm not impressed.  I may not waste my time.

Derrick from Criminal Minds is in the audience. I love him!

Wow! Wayne Brady says All My Children & One Life To Live retiring and Susan Lucci is going into forced retirement. How in the heck can he compare Oprah and Regis retiring to what happened to the soaps. That is just so wrong.

From the look on Susan Lucci and Rebecca Budig faces I don't think they liked it either. I have a feeling this show is going to feel a lot longer than it is.

Okay here we go.

Rachel Ray & Penn and Teller Announce. Not a fan of any of these three.

So that's one more great Actor that started on a soap. Shamar did a tribute to Erica that made me cry. Susan Lucci says "Daytime is alive and well, look at all the talent in this building tonight.

No I didn't tally the game shows and talks shows, cause I just don't care about them.

I don't know why I watch these award shows. They hardly ever pick the people I want to win. I would have much rather heard from the actors rather than have the vacation commercials in the show. I could have even done without the entertainment and the Oprah tribute. I think it's great they put the Children's Hospital stuff in, showing us what the actors care about, but all the other entertainment I think should have been left out. They should have let us see the actors that are soon to be unemployed. I'm just left very sad after all that.
