As I looked over the list of 2009 Daytime Emmy Nominees I started wondering...how does this really work? Are the folks that are voting actually watching any of these shows. Yes there is a lot of bad material in daytime, prime time, on cable...shall I go on?! Some of the best actors/shows in Daytime didn't get noticed and some that were insulting to the viewers are getting props. I think in all things television & film if you choose to insult I can vote with my remote. On the other hand, maybe that's how they intend to capsize the industry.
Daytime episodic seem to be a dying genera, evident by the cancellation of GL the oldest running episodic. In a time of recession when when people need a place to escape they are writing crap. I do believe that the people that are making the best of the worst should be recognized. I truly believe on-line or on TV, daytime, prim time or film, "If you write it, they will watch it!".
Until next time, when we can chit-chat again!
