Casting News and Chatter

May 17, 2018

We are officially in one of those periods where I wake up every day and wonder, “What backstage news is there from Days?!” before thinking, “What’s going to happen onscreen on Days today?” Bits and pieces behind the cut…

I actually gasped when I opened the link to this news.

45th Daytime Emmys Recap

April 30, 2018

You guys! Days had a pretty excellent night at the Daytime Emmys this year, including a win for Outstanding Daytime Drama.


Please enjoy this screenshot, courtesy of friend and reader Damon, of Ken Corday accepting the award while Deidre Hall and Suzanne Rogers attempt to act as if they don’t want to murder each other. Seriously, I didn’t even know it was possible to feel secondhand tension this strongly.

Anyway, hooray for Days, which also took home the prizes for Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Direction in a Daytime Drama Series. In addition, James Reynolds (Abe) won for Outstanding Lead Actor, and Greg Vaughan (Eric) was named Outstanding Supporting Actor. Vaughan did some really great, classically soapy work during the Nicole storyline, so I’m thrilled for his win, and Reynolds is a Days institution, so even if I wasn’t crazy about the story of Theo’s shooting or Abe’s role in it, it’s awesome that he scored a win.

The other big centerpiece of the evening was the presentation of a Lifetime Achievement Award to Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes, a.k.a. Doug and Julie. You can watch the video tribute to them below:

All in all, it’s very cool for Days to receive these accolades and to be regarded on an even playing field with the other three remaining soaps. A lot has been done to shore up the show in the past year or so, and even if it isn’t perfect (far from it), the core of the show we all love is still there, and I hope we get to enjoy it for many more years to come.

Also, I got to attend the Creative Arts portion of the Daytime Emmys on Friday night…
