It's Daytime's biggest night so join me as I LIVE BLOG the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards! Keep checking back for the latest updates here at Daytime Confidential.

Hey y'all! It's Mel here. I attempted to watch the Red Carpet show, but I couldn't get through 5 minutes of that train wreck. The social media hosts on the carpet are two of the most lewd, disrespectful and downright clueless people I've seen grace an awards show in a long time.

When the duo decided to playfully suggest to rape Ryan Paevey, I quickly exited the live stream. Our Daytime Television actors, actresses and crew work entirely too hard year round to be disrespected by two children who didn't even have the common courtesy to Google who they would be interviewing. I, for one, refused to stand for it.

I'll be back for the actual ceremony, but I want to know what y'all thought of the red carpet show. What were your best and worst moments? Let me know in the comments!

The show was supposed to start two minutes ago, but clearly they are running behind. Now one of the girls is talking about her nipples falling out....on a RED CARPET SHOW!

I feel like I need to apologize to Irna Phillips and the rest of the soap opera legends for an absolute shit show of a red carpet.

Oh look, the feed is black. I can't even see it. I can hear the producers of the show joking about what the girls' were saying on the carpet. How great.

I can hear Kathy Griffin on stage. The first words out of her mouth are, "Welcome to the shit show". She didn't tell one lie.

Five minutes into the show, they finally put the camera on Kathy. Oh look, Kathy just let the F word fly out of her mouth. This is supposed to be a prestigious awards show, and the host is swearing like sailor. I'm not surprised since it's Kathy, but still.

Kathy is rambling about herself. I don't care. She's talking about last year's hot mess show. She's going on about having to meet people she talked trash about last year.

Kathy is making this monologue all about her, I'm not a fan. She's finally done and brings out Billy Bush.

Billy Bush just shaded TMZ. Keep On Billy. All of your secrets will be on TMZ by tonight. Keep On. Anywho, he presents:

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series

The clips between the nominees are back. Well, there's a plus!

I told y'all Eric was the Dark Horse in this one. Wow! Starting the night off in a shocker! I liked his reel a lot. Eric thanked his wife and gave a nod to his Passions history. Well done Eric! Great Speech!

Kathy Griffin is out on stage. She's making jokes about the awards not even being a real show. "It's like Twitter". I know I'm supposed to laugh, but I can't. This awards show already doesn't get enough respect, let's give them more reason to treat us like crap Kathy.

Kathy telling a story about how Sarah Michelle Gellar told her Susan Lucci got her fired after she won her Emmy. All Tea. ALL SHADE.

This is another I called in the Emmy podcast. I said on there and I'll say it on here. Of course, they were going to win. The show has been trash for at least the last year, it had to win. That's how things work, isn't it. However, that's not to look down on there accomplishment. A win is a win I suppose.

Kathy Griffin just interrupted JFP because she could. Yeah, that's about how this show was treated.

Well folks, that's it for me. Let me know what you think in the comments! Until the next awards show, I'll catch y'all later.
