    Staff of Soaps.com have been anxiously awaiting the Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards ceremony and all of the fun to be had in the week previous to the show.

    As you know, Shannon Burrell (Soaps.com Journalist) and I plan on covering the Daytime Emmys next week, for all of our visitors and soap fans. We're anticipating a hectic yet great time. Here is just one of the events we've been invited to cover - The Official Talent Gift Lounge. On 3 Productions will be producing the gift lounges. They are popular for gifting the celebs for the Tony Awards, The Independent Spirit Awards, Z100’s Jingle Ball, etc. Each year, On3 Productions produces an "Official Presenter Gift Lounge", backstage of the Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards. This year, the 34th year, is no different, well, except for Soaps.com will be on hand to give our visitors the scoop!
