Love it or Hate it?
The 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards has just added Trya Banks, Jimmy Kimmel, Susan Lucci, Barbara Walters and Montel Williams to its list of presenters.
ETOnline is reporting that "Kimmel has been asked to present the Lifetime Achievement Award to Regis Philbin, who is being recognized for his 40 years in television on shows such as Live with Regis and Kelly, Who Wants to be a Millionaire and Million Dollar Password."
Here are the presenters from your favorite soaps.

One Life to Live: Susan Haskell, Michael Easton, Kassie DePavia, Farah Fath and John-Paul Lavoisier
Young and Restless: Melody Thomas Scott, Doug Davidson and Don Diamont.
As we reported previously, daytime's equivalent of Ryan Seacrest, All My Children's Cameron Mathison and The View's Sherri Shepherd will be hosting this year's award show.
Which sort of leads me to a fun topic for discussion.
If you could cast a current or former daytime star as the lead in a major movie, who would you cast? What about As the World Turns' Mick Hazen (Parker) as Harry Potter, One Life to Live's Kristen Alderson (Starr) as Hermione Granger and former General Hospital star Dylan Cash (Michael) as Ron Weasley? Now I just have to figure out who I'd cast as Voldemort and Dumbledore.
Hypothetically speaking, if Elhers would in fact join All My Children would you like to see her as Hayley, Liza or someone else?
My favorite former daytime real and reel life sweethearts Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos (ex-Hayley and Mateo Santos, All My Children) have brokered a first-look deal with the TLC cable network to produce unscripted television programs under their Milojo Productions umbrella, according to The Hollywood Reporter.com. Ripa is also set to star in one of the proposed series, but don't worry, she's keeping her day job on Live With Regis and Kelly. TLC's president and a good friend of the Ripa-Consuelos clan is former head of ABC daytime Angela Shapiro-Mathes.
The family that producers together, stays together
