I once again had a great time iReporting for CNN on the red carpet at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday! Here are my Top 10 most memorable moments from the show.
"The Bold and The Beautiful" sweeps the competition: Outstanding Lead Actress, Supporting Actor, Best Writing and Best Direction are the categories "The Bold and The Beautiful" took home, nabbing the most Emmys this year.
Conducting Emmy interviews for the first time: Usually, I can be found behind the scenes or a camera lens, so this was my first time wielding the mic on a red carpet. It is a whole different world to be in front of the camera vs. behind it, and it gave me new perspective and respect for the actors I was interviewing.
Shining the bat signal on the red carpet: You can put the girl in a dress, but you can't put her in heels. While the other girls were complaining about their feet hurting or were having trouble walking in their gigantic heels, I was comfortably paying homage to my favorite superhero with my Batman sneakers, given to me by a few of my dear friends.
Scott Clifton and Billy Miller duel on the winner's red carpet: Really, the only logical thing that can transpire when two men from competing shows are handed large metal objects and placed opposite each other is a duel, much to the delight of the photographers. Sadly, the fight to the death was short-lived, ending prematurely when Billy and Scott were summoned to the press room.
Dan Kroll, Chrishell Stausse and Haley Pullos' fashion report: Chrishell Stause from "Days Of Our Lives" and Haley Pullos from "General Hospital" have once again teamed up with the good folks at Soap Central to rate and critique the clothes and styling of the talent on the Daytime Emmy red carpet. I was fortunate to witness the trio taping their report, which turned out to be my favorite part of the whole evening.
George Lucas! Hey, remember that time I met George Lucas? I think it was a Sunday and he had just won an Emmy... After George and his associates posed for photos on the press line, I introduced myself, congratulated him, and shook his hand as he exited the carpet.
Chandler Massey wins his second Emmy for his gay role: The times are changing, and "Days Of Our Lives" is taking the opportunity to showcase LGBT characters in a positive light. The show, and actor Chandler Massey, are obviously garnering not only attention for these storylines, but accolades as Chandler wins another Emmy following his win in the same category last year.
Heather Tom wins yet another Emmy: After breaking records last year and winning lead actress after having previously won in the supporting and younger categories, Heather Tom took home another lead actress Emmy this year for her post-partum storyline on "The Bold and The Beautiful." Not only is Heather talented on screen, but she was again humble, articulate and charming in the press room following her win. I see many more awards in Heather's future.
Kristen Alderson wins her first Emmy: Kristen Alderson practically grew up on "One Life To Live," and brought the character of Starr Manning from Llanview to "General Hospital's" Port Charles last year. Now that "One Life" is reincarnated online, Kristen is playing the role of Kiki on "General Hospital." I feel it's a fitting tribute to her work as Starr on "One Life" that she wins an Emmy for that portrayal as she closes one chapter and moves on to another role. She stated in the press room that she has named her Emmy "Starr" in tribute to her time on "One Life."
"Days" wins Best Drama: "Days Of Our Lives" has been on the upswing over the past year, since winning last year's Emmy for Best Writing. Bringing home veteran characters and addressing issues such as Alzheimer's and homophobia, "Days" has been pulling in well-deserved viewership. Last year's Daysaster before the Olympics was action-filled drama that killed off some fan favorites while leading to solid story lines for the surviving characters. The underdog show, and my favorite network soap, is the best it's been in years. It only makes sense that a Best Drama win would follow a Best Writing win, given that any show is only as good as its writing.
I am so happy that I was able to attend the 40th Daytime Emmys and share the experience with everyone through iReport!
