All My Children

Daytime soap opera airing on Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet.

Miss seeing former soap star Jeff Branson on the screen? You’re in luck! The actor, who has portrayed “The Young and the Restless’” Ronan Malloy, “All My Children’s” Jonathan Lavery and “Guiding Light’s” Shayne Lewis, will be appearing on tonight’s episode of TNT’s “Perception!”

Daytime fans who might be feeling a little nostalgic for the “good old days of soaps” now have something to smile about: Reruns of NBC’s former soap opera, “The Doctors,” will soon be airing on Retro TV!

You may know her from “All My Children,” where she played Julia Santos, “The Bold and the Beautiful,” where she played Samantha Kelly, or “Days of our Lives,” where she played Dr. Liv Norman, but Sydney Penny will soon be known to the (young adult) masses as Leona Vanderwaal on “Pretty Little Liars!”

"Devious Maids'" Susan Lucci (Genevieve Delatour) famously received a record 19 Daytime Emmy Award nominations in the category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Erica Kane on ABC's "All My Children" before finally taking home the golden statue for the first and only time on Friday, May 21, 1999, after Shemar Moore (ex-Malcom Winters, "The Young and the Restless") declared, "The streak is over... Susan Lucci!"

There’s no doubt that the Daytime Emmy Awards play a large part of the daytime industry, but just how prevalent is the golden statue when it comes to the every day work lives of the people who make up the genre? Soap Opera Network spoke with performers, writers, producers and more to get their take on how often and how much the Emmys impact their work lives. Does the event and its promised accolades inspire them to work harder? Do they keep the Emmys in mind when filming, writing and performing scenes? And are the Emmy awards really necessary for the industry? There are varying opinions, so read on to find out what some of the genre’s heavy hitters had to say!

With "One Life to Live" up for Outstanding Drama Series during the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, it was no surprise to see Prospect Park founder Richard Frank and his wife, "All My Children" and "One Life to Live's" "More" show host Leslie Miller, on the red carpet.

Ilene Kristen may be best known as her quirky character Roxy from ABC's version of "One Life to Live," but the star arrived at the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in support of the online sudser, "Tainted Dreams," in which she plays Vivian Park.

Everyone loves a comeback, and it’s no different in the case of the rumor that the Queen of Soaps, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, “All My Children”), managed to get Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendall Hart) fired from the sudser back in the 90s. Though the rumor is quite ancient in the daytime industry, it’s getting a second life on sites like Us Weekly and Perez Hilton thanks to a comment Kathy Griffin made as host of the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards live webcast on Sunday, June 22.

Once again proving that its at the top of the heap when it comes to daytime, CBS swept the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy awards with 13 drama related wins, leading all networks. “The Young and the Restless” took home a combined total of nine wins during the Creative Arts Emmy Awards and the Emmy Awards, while “The Bold and the Beautiful” managed to snag four. NBC’s “Days of our Lives” took home three Emmy awards, while ABC’s “General Hospital” garnered two. Meanwhile, Toln.com’s “All My Children” won three awards, while “One Life to Live” took home three, as well.
