Last Friday the 34th Daytime Emmy awards were presented in Los Angeles. I often reference soap operas so it's pretty obvious that I'm a huge fan. Having said that I was so excited for the awards, I know lame right! But there's just something about seeing the characters out of character; how does the actor look, what is the actor wearing, who is the actor sitting by - you know typical intriguing questions. Anyway my favorite soap is The Young & the Restless, so needless to say I was rooting heavily for the show and any cast member nominated for an award. When it came down to announcing the best soap opera of the year (Outstanding Drama Series), Rachael Ray shocked us by saying, "there's two, it's a tie!" What the?! A tie, are you kidding me? The committee couldn't reach a decision? Anyway, The Young & the Restless was a co-winner in this category. Whatever! They win outright in my book.

Other notables:

Outstanding Lead Actor
Christian LeBlanc, Y&R

Outstanding Younger Actor
Bryton McClure, Y&R

Outstanding Achievement in Live & Direct To Tape Sound Mixing

I didn't know there was a tie. I also didn't know that The Young & the Restless finally got out of its life of boredom since I gave up on it years ago (The Young & the Restless, The Bold & the Beautiful, The Boring & Kill Me Now! ...anywho)... As far as the Emmys (hum, is it Emmies plural when you say it like that or is that like saying Johnnies or Kellies?... anywho), I tuned in for a moment for memories sake to see if I'd recognize anyone. I tuned in just as Betty White was speaking with some other person - Oh my God!!! Can these skits be any more boring, rehearsed, catered towards old corny folks, etc etc!!! OH MY GOD, I had to not only change the channel but I just turned off the TV and haven't turned it back on since!!! Hence, I missed the surprising finale so thanks for the news lol.
