For a medium that Hollywood loves to poke fun at, daytime soap operas certainly manage to produce a lot of award-winning actors! Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards were dominated by the wins of former daytime stars.
Tommy Lee Jones, who spent most of the 1970's playing Dr. Mark Toland on ABC Daytime's One Life to Live, took home the Actor for his work in Lincoln. Jones played diehard abolitionist Thaddeus Stevens in the film.
Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston won the Actor for Outstanding Male Actor in a Drama Series. Cranston was an original cast member on Agnes Nixon and the late Douglas Marland's 30-minute, daily college soap Loving back in 1983, portraying Doug Donovan.
Julianne Moore (ex-Frannie Hughes, As the World Turns) and Amanda Seyfried (ex-Joni Stafford, All My Children) were among the former soap actresses who sparkled on the 70th Annual Golden Globes red carpet on January 13, in Los Angeles. See more red carpet photos after the jump!
As the World Turns alum Julianne Moore may have won an Emmy for her portrayal of Sarah Palin in the HBO movie Game Change, but that doesn’t mean Palin’s daughter Bristol thinks the actress deserved it. Bristol, who returned to compete on the current season of Dancing With the Stars, told Us Weekly.
"I don't think she's a good interpreter of my mom. I think my mom's way hotter than that,"
So why does Bristol think Moore’s interpretation was lackluster?
"She doesn't have that accent. It's all kind of silly,"
I just love that Julianne Moore! In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the superstar reminded an entertainment journo that her Best Actress in a Miniseries Primetime Emmy nomination—for playing Sarah Palin in HBO's Game Change—isn't Moore's first dance with the golden lady. Said Moore:
"I did win a Daytime Emmy for As the World Turns in 1988," she laughs. "But I couldn't attend the ceremony because I was playing Ophelia in Hamlet at the Guthrie Theater. So they called me up and told me I won!"
Moore played identical half sisters/first cousins (Got that?) Frannie and Sabrina Hughes on the Procter and Gamble serial from 1985-88. She reprised the role of Frannie in 2010, the same year ATWT ended its 54-year run on CBS. It's so refreshing to see an A-lister who isn't afraid to mention her sudsy past. Yeah, Meg Ryan, we're talking to you! Watch a clip of Moore as Oakdale's Frannie and Sabrina after the jump!
Daytime Emmy winner and multi-Oscar nominee Julianne Moore has been offered the role of Margaret White in the upcoming remake of Stephen King’s Carrie, according to Deadline. The character is the mother of the film’s title character, who will be portrayed by Chloe Moretz.
Moore played identical half sisters/cousins Frannie and Sabrina Hughes on ATWT from 1985-1988.
