Hey there, soap fans, welcome to Soaps.com’s 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards live blog for All My Children! I’ll be here, blogging about the stars on the red carpet, who won from our show and anything else that seems like fun, so sit back, grab a cup of coffee and have a good time!

A little of what you can expect this evening at the 35th Daytime Emmy Awards is glitz, glamor and hopefully to see David Canary take home the Lead Actor Emmy!

8:00 PM EST:

Fans have been very vocal this year about the lack of nominations for the show. Our lone acting nomination is for David Canary in the Lead Actor Category. The show also received a few Creative Emmy Awards Nominations and won one of them. You can read about that here.

The show opened with a fun clip Of Cameron Mathison (Ryan) and Sherri Sheppard (from The View) looking for each other before the show. They are co-hosting tonight. Sherri interrupted several “scenes” of AMC and Cameron just busted in on Whoopi Goldberg in the bathroom. What a hoot! Oh, Sherri just showed “Erica” how to get out of jail!

And here’s a cool little snippet – all of the tables have digital video cameras on them, so the stars can take “behind the scenes” clips. How cool is that? After the show, the videos will be uploaded to SOAPnet, and we can see what the stars see!

8:21 PM EST

Cameron just introduced One Life To Live, the show is up for Outstanding Drama Series.

8:35 PM EST

Sherri sheppard and Cameron Mathison (Ryan) just reminded us about the video clips and teased Barbara Walters about her video taking ability. You know, Cameron has done a lot of hosting gigs and I have to say, he is really good at it! It’s nice to see him a little more relaxed than his character (Ryan) has been in Pine Valley, lately!

8:48 PM EST

Darnell Williams (Jesse), Debbi Morgan (Angie) and Cornelius Smith, JR (Frankie) are announced the Outstanding Directing Team for a Daily Drama. One Life To Live won – no surprise, they have had some amazing storylines this past year, including the high school prom story last spring. A quick note, Debbi looks absolutely fabulous in a sapphire blue, backless gown!
