General Hospital's Julie Marie Berman took home Emmy gold again, this time in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category at the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. Thanking her co-stars for the "wonderful ride" Berman's win comes as she recently left the role of Lulu Spencer Falconari. Congratulations Julie!
Hello Everyone! Welcome to Daytime Confidential's Official Live Blog for The 40th Annual Daytime Emmys! We'll get started in a bit, but drop me a line in the comments on what you expect for the evening!
The show is officially underway y'all! I caught some of the red carpet show, but I didn't see many soap stars. I don't know what that's about, but I digress.
We open with hosts Robin Meade, Sam Champion and AJ Hammer. I like Robin's dress. They're rambling about the Daytime Emmys turning 40 this year. Oh great, they're going to sing. Now, Robin is singing. I don't understand what's happening here.
Okay. Sam is doing a Daytme Emmy Doppler radar. I still have yet to see something that features a soap star. They just showed George Lucas who looks like he'd rather have a V8 than be in the audience. I'm kind of feeling your pain George.
So Sheryl Underwood is going to interview all the stars as they win their awards on stage. She's going to fan girl ALL OVER the place, as she's a long time soap fan.
The nominees for Outstanding Younger Actor all come out on stage. They're presenting:
OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR
And The Emmy Goes To...

Hello Everyone! Welcome to the hottest live-blog out there for tonight's 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards! I will be getting things started shortly here, but in the meantime, I want to hear from you. Drop me a line in the comments on your favorite looks from the red carpet and who you think will come away with an Emmy tonight.
And Awaaaaayyyyy We Go!
We start with the beautiful Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling and a few other ladies are in restroom practicing their glamour faces! There's so many stars in this one y'all. LOVE seeing the phenomenal Kathy Bates put her fist through the door and help a crying Jimmy Kimmel. Jimmy seems to be having a few Botox issues. It's pretty funny. Jimmy isn't sure he can go on with the Emmys and a few men who were all in the running to host pop up and say they can do it.
Kathy and company agree to punch Jimmy's face back in place for him. After, Julia Louis-Dreyfus gets a few hits in and Jimmy is ready. At least, we thought he was. It seems Jimmy forgot his pants. Ellen Degeneres shows up with some pants to save the day.
We head to a few shots from the red carpet and Tina Fey looks FABOOSH! READ MORE
Congratulations to two of daytime's finest young actresses. General Hospital's sisterly duo of Haley Pullos (Molly Lansing) and Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina Corinthos) both won at the 32nd Annual Young Artists Awards. Pullos took home the top prize for Best Performance in a Daytime Series Young Actress 12 and Under, while Ainsworth won for Best Performance in a Daytime Series, Young Actress. These two are most definitely going places. Other soapy winners included: Mick Hazen (ex-Parker, As The World Turns) and Tate Berney (AJ, All My Children).
The nominations for the 2008 Sentinel for Health Awards were announced earlier this month and As the World Turns is nominated for Barbara's (Colleen Zenk Pinter) oral cancer storyline. The fact that Colleen Zenk Pinter had the same illness in real life made this story extra special for me. One of my favorite moments is the conversation Barbara had with Lucinda (Elizabeth Hubbard) who had cancer herself in 2005 (watch those scenes in the clip above). My only complaint about the story was that the airtime it got was pretty nonexistent.
The awards take place in Los Angeles on Thursday, October 2. For more information go to The Norman Lear Center.
