36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards
ATI president of Worldwide Media and Entertainment Jim Romanovich, shared his thoughts with We Love Soaps about his recent visit to the set of The Bold and the Beautiful. In the preview below they talk about Brad Bell, Lee Phillip Bell and Susan Flannery.
Brad Bell was extremely gracious with his time and was very excited about our being involved with the Daytime Emmys. I congratulated him on his show’s nomination. But the real surprise for me was in seeing Lee Phillip who is just as genuine and as friendly as you can imagine. Coming from Chicago myself, Lee was Oprah before Oprah and much of what you see through Oprah and other talk shows originated with Lee’s shows back in the day. She is a true television icon and I was completely humbled in her presence.
And Susan Flannery…what can I say? This is, in my opinion, one of the three top actresses in daytime television…no, strike that! One of the three top actresses…period! Every time she is on screen, the result is several notches higher than what is on the written page. She has that rare ability to bring out the very best in her co-stars, as wonderful as they are anyway, which is the mark of a great actor. A great actor plays the author’s intent even when their character is not the focal point of a scene. But her reaction to other actors is worth the price of gold. Acting is reacting, especially on television, and watching Susan Flannery is like attending a master acting class. She is a generous actor that allows her co-stars to shine. She always plays the truth! And that is the most important role for an actor. It was my privilege to meet to her, if I haven’t been obvious enough.

USA TODAY's Daytime Emmy nomination headline reads "Daytime Emmys Honor Sesame Street, Snub The View." In the article they bring up how once again Susan Lucci was snubbed and The View was "overlooked" as best talk show nominee this year. Ironically, the majority of this year's nominations are a joke. Certainly some snubs aren't a surprise. We know from the Daytime Emmy Prenominations that Melody Thomas Scott and Trevor St. John didn't even make the prenom list on their respective shows. However, there are certainly snubs among those who did make prenomination list. Kristen Alderson, Brandon Buddy and Arianne Zucker come immediately to mind. One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless were both snubbed, that is clear to almost anyone who actually watched them in 2009. One blessing - in this era of opposite thinking - Molly Burnett wasn't nominated. Had that happened both hell and heaven would have frozen over. READ MORE
All My Children had better watch its back. The gangsters over at Sesame Street aren't happy at coming in second. They've already taken out the Corinthos, Kiriakis and DiMera mob families and now they've their sights set on the Pratt Valley Mafia. The 36th Annual Emmy Award organizers should make sure they have tight security or Elmo just might cap Zach Slater's ass.
