Its official. The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) has revealed the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are on and heading back to Los Angeles!

Could soap icon Jack Wagner return to General Hospital after all? ABC Soaps In Depth spoke with the actor after he burned up the dance floor on Dancing With The Stars Monday night.
I'm prohibited from doing anything but dancing with [Anna] right now at all. Except maybe for going to the grocery store and feeding my kids!" And what about his rumored return to GH? "No Port Charles updates," he shared. "I'm actually under contract to ABC so if [GH] wants to call then they can call."
Here's hoping Mickey Mouse and the Soap Gods make this happen!
Outspoken daytime thespian Peter Bergman doesn't mince words when talking about the most recent Daytime Emmy telecasts. The award-winning The Young and the Restless actor spoke with TV Guide's Michael Logan regarding his take on the future of the telecast and its most recent incarnations:
It was a vulgar, Vegas nightmare. The awards need to return to what they were years ago, a private, elegant event.
Ouch! Meanwhile fans and actors alike are asking the question: Will the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards even be aired this year? Given the huge reform the pre-nominations recently underwent, it would be a shame if we didn't get to see our faves take home the gold this year!
Ratings, Rants and Raves: General Hospital Holds Steady in Demos; The Young and the Restless Ties All-Time Low in HouseholdsBy Jamey Giddens on March 19, 2012

ABC Daytime's General Hospital managed to hold steady in households, women 18-49 and W18-34. The fact that GH is pulling in a solid 1.0 in W18-49, while The Revolution only managed a 0.5 the week in question is the real story. The Mouse House needs to admit they effed up with The Revolution and give that timeslot to GH, STAT!
In story, Sonny (Maurice Benard) vs. Todd (Roger Howarth) kicked off in a major way, as the One Life to Live supervillain learned from his devastated daughter Starr (Kristen Alderson) that a man named Sonny COR-in-thos was supposedly responsible for Cole (Van Huighes) and Hope's deaths.
