While the 44th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were not televised, they were streamed online via Facebook and Twitter, and there was even a red carpet pre-show hosted by GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Carolyn Hennesy (Diane)!
Follow along with Hennesy as she walks the red carpet, poses for photographers, does interviews with the press, and runs into some very familiar daytime faces along the way in these series of videos!
Then Hennesy took fans inside the reception for the Daytime Emmys, hanging out and chatting with stars like THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Patrika Darbo (Shirley), DAYS OF OUR LIVES Suzanne Rogers (Maggie), and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Jess Walton (Jill)!
Then, of course, there was the 44th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony itself! The show opened with a beautiful performance of “Seasons of Love” from the Broadway musical Rent sung by daytime stars Karla Mosley (Maya, B&B), Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe, DAYS), Eric Martsolf (Brady, DAYS), Reign Edwards (Nicole, B&B), Jacob Young (Rick, B&B), Tristan Lake Leabu (Reed, Y&R), Robert Palmer Watkins (Dillon, GH), as well as the Crenshaw High School Choir.
Hosts Mario Lopez and Sheryl Underwood kept things light with their witty banter throughout the evening. Susan Lucci presented a moving tribute to ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE creator Agnes Nixon. There was also a celebration of 65 years of TODAY and 30 years of B&B. And of course, there were plenty of Daytime Emmys handed out to the winners!
