Over the Thanksgiving holiday, ALL MY CHILDREN’s Debbi Morgan (Angie) saddened fans when she took to Twitter to reveal that she would not be submitting herself for Daytime Emmy consideration this year. With the recent rules changes to the Daytime Emmys, Prospect Park’s versions of AMC and ONE LIFE TO LIVE will be considered equal to the soaps still broadcast on network television. But Morgan declared that she was not going to compete.
“I just really, really want to move on,” she tweeted. “The many months of being told we’re on hiatus but would be coming back and then snatching the rug from under us and the fans has been very emotional. So right now, the head space I’m in is just completely distancing myself from AMC with regards of an Emmy consideration.”
Despite the emotional way that AMC was taken away from cast, crew and the fans once more, Morgan cherishes every moment she had with the soap. “I will forever be grateful for the years of playing Angie beautifully created by our beloved Agnes Nixon and our most amazing cast will always hold a special place in my heart. Darnell [Williams, Jesse], Sal [Stowers, Cassandra], Cady [McClain, Dixie], Thorsten [Kaye, Zach], Vincent [Irizarry, David]… just to name a few!
“And to be honest,” she continued, “I don’t need an Emmy to recognize how much you all loved the work I was able to bring to you. Your tweets said it all, and that’s ‘Emmy’ enough for me… Smile!”
