‘General Hospital’ wins Daytime Emmys and it is still on ABC

As you may know the Daytime Emmys were shown this weekend, it wasn’t on CBS but on HLN. If anyone was looking for it, good luck in finding the show. It was seen, if you were watching HLN on Sunday night, then it is good.

NBC’s “Today show” won for the best morning show, it was competing with “Good Morning America” what happened to CBS’s Early Today show. It did not compete?

Heather Tom won for the best lead actress for CBS “The Bold and The Beautiful,” great for her. She was once on “The Young and the Restless”  long ago, but made the transition to “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

Anthony Geary won as the lead actor in “General Hospital,” so did Nancy Lee Grahn for supporting actress and supporting actor Jonathan Jackson. “General Hospital” won for the directing team, it’s the only soap opera on ABC that is left.

My favorite show “Dr Oz” was named the best informative talk show. I still get my free medical advice from his show, and I am still living, and writing this article.

Bill Geddie, longtime associate of Barbara Walters and executive producer of “The View”, received the life achievement award.

“There’s not a lot of glamour and glory in daytime,” Geddie told the room in his acceptance remarks. “But when you think about it, we’re all here with the best of intentions: We just love making TV!”, which is true. How else where can we get our news – the internet?

Please do not broadcast the award shows through the internet, it is meant for TV and TV only.

The Daytime Emmy Award was broadcasts at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, where the death of Whitney Houston passed away a few months ago at the same hotel. They should have broad cast some place else in the area not where a murder/ suicide has taken place.  More tragic news happened to this hotel just day before the Daytime Emmys were awarded.
