Daytime Snubs Itself Out of Awards Contention

The Casting Society of America
Last week, the Casting Society of America (CSA) presented "The 31st Annual Artios Awards," which honors casting directors for their hard work and dedication to casting television shows and films across the country during calendar year 2015. Sadly, for the first time in as many years, daytime was shut out of recognition by the organization. It only has itself to blame.
Lynn Herring
Since being brought back to ABC's "General Hospital" in a recurring capacity in 2013, actress Lynn Herring has proven time and time again how viable her role as Lucy Coe is to the legacy of the daytime drama series, particularly in regards to the annual Nurses Ball event. Sadly, the soap hasn't provided the actress with enough story potential for her character, whose married so many men in Port Charles that she rivals only Pine Valley's Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) from "All My Children." Herring recently took to Facebook to share her desire to do more than an average day player appearance on the soap.
Best known for roles on "All My Children" and "Another World," actress Alla Korot is set to begin filming at NBC's "Days of our Lives" next month in the newly created role of Janet Bernard, Korot announced on her Twitter page over the weekend. A first airdate is not yet known but fans can expect for the actress to hit the screen sometime in June.

With returning stars Candace Cameron-BureJodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber as D.J. Tanner, Stephanie Tanner and Kimmy Gibbler, respectively, Netflix announced today that all 13 episodes of "Fuller House," the spin-off of the popular ABC sitcom that dominated the late 1980s and early 1990s, will release on Friday, February 26. The streaming service also released the first teaser trailer that brings back plenty of nostalgia for longtime fans.
The death of former "All My Children" actor David Canary (ex-Adam/Stuart) has touched many in the daytime world, among them soap superstar Susan Lucci (ex-Erica). Canary portrayed one of Lucci's many husbands on the soap, and she remembered him fondly on Twitter and Instagram, noting, "I am so grateful to have known him."
