Daytime Emmy events.
Soaps.com is dedicated to bringing our readers the best coverage when it comes to soaps, and that includes the Daytime Emmys. This yearâ€™s Emmys will stream online, with comedian Kathy Griffin as the host. A pre-awards cocktail reception is planned, and the stars will be presenting the awards as they have done in years past. Soaps.com has been at the Daytime Emmys since the 34th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in 2007, and we will be there again this year. Each year we blog live from the event to bring you the latest news as it happens. In preparation for this yearâ€™s event, letâ€™s take a look at what Soaps.com brought our readers in past years.
Before the big night, the stars have plenty of chances to mingle at a variety of parties as well as the annual cocktail reception that honors all the nominees. Soaps.comâ€™s first foray into Emmy week was in 2007 with SOAPnetâ€™s Night Before Party at Boulevard 3 in Hollywood, CA. There we photographed and chatted with the stars on the red carpet before heading in to enjoy the party. We caught up with Jacklyn Zeman (Bobbie Spencer, "General Hospital") and chatted about whether she would be part of the then upcoming "General Hospital" spinoff "Night Shift." At the time she wasnâ€™t sure whether she would be a part of the show, which was okay since she liked being surprised when receiving scripts. We also caught up with Thaao Penghlis and Leann Hunley, who had just returned to "Days of Our Lives" as Tony DiMera and Anna Brady DiMera.
