Emmy's

Make Your Predictions, Who Will Win The Daytime Emmy?


It's Daytime Emmy week and that means we get to have some fun making predictions about who will win the coveted statue and who will go home empty handed.  Jamey and I had the privilege of being joined on the podcast by The Envelope's Tom O'Neil and TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco to discuss this year's awards.

After the jump I've posted which actors Jamey and I chose to win. You'll have to listen to the podcast to find out why we chose who we did, but I thought it would be fun if you the readers could get involved and predict who should, and will, win on Sunday. So get out your crystal ball, look into the future and predict who you think will win! READ MORE

DC #445: 2009 Daytime Emmy Predictions

It's Emmy Week at Daytime Confidential! On today's episode of the podcast, famed entertainment journalist Tom O'Neil (founder of The Envelope.com, senior editor of In Touch Weekly) and TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco, chat with Luke and Jamey about the 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, airing Sunday, Aug. 30, 2009 on The CW.

O'Neil, the foremost expert on awards shows, and author of such tomes as Movie Awards, The Emmys and The Grammys, provides an in depth, insider's perspective of the award show process, and drives home why it is imperative daytime fans watch this year's Daytime Emmy Awards,and support all daytime programming if the telecast is to survive.

O'Neil and Branco, himself a veteran of awards show coverage, also weigh in on whether or not Susan Lucci finally winning the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress and/or Oprah Winfrey taking herself out of the race for Outstanding Talk Show Host, cost the Daytime Emmys in terms of much-needed, mainstream buzz.

Along the way, Luke, Jamey and Nelson handicap this year's race, providing their thoughts on who should win, as opposed to who will win. It's an episode you won't wanna miss. Then, be sure to check out Nelson Branco, Soap Opera Digest's Stephanie Sloane and our own Jamey Giddens on the hour-long Daytime Emmy pre-show Live From The Red Carpet, hosted by The Insider's Lara Spencer and Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier, airing just before the Emmys.

It's Officially, Official!



It's officially, official... the Daytime Emmy's will air on The CW network on August 30, 2009. The ceremony is set to be held at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. The Hollywood Reporter has the news:

NATAS approached the CW after CBS, which had been alternating with ABC in carrying the event, declined to renew its contract. After ABC also declined, saying it was not prepared to broadcast the event two years in a row, the academy pitched it to other nets.

This will mark the first time the Daytime Emmys air on a non-Big Three net.

"Sesame Street" will be honored with the lifetime achievement award at the event for "40 years of educational television."

"The Daytime Emmy Awards are one of the cornerstones of our business," said Frank Radice, president and chief marketing officer of NATAS. "From the extravagant red carpet to the great entertainment, the viewer will experience the show through new approaches which will make this year's show more robust and relevant than ever before."
