Okay, so a few thoughts on the Daytime Emmys:
1) I suck at predicting, and apologize for that, but then again, so did most of the so-called experts who have followed these awards for years, as it seems we all missed the mark.
2) Despite a host, this moved along at a bit of a clip, but was kind of boring, no over the top emotional moments, no Susan Lucci winning moments, not a lot of fun either. But at least it was short, sweet, and to the point.
3) What a crock that All My Children and One Life to Live got such terrible tributes. I thought the Guiding Light one was minuscule, but at least they showed some clips. Hopefully, next year, at least One Life to Live will get something better.
Good Night guys, and tune in tomorrow or maybe Monday for The 2nd Annual Awards Psychic Television Award Winners, Part III of the Top 100 Films of the 1990's, and continued Emmy/Oscar coverage as we move into July!
