Some of our favorites at the awards!

Welcome to Soaps.com’s 35th Daytime Emmy Awards live blog for Days of Our Lives!

DAYS fans have been very vocal with their frustration over DAYS being overlooked in the past as far as Daytime Emmy nominations went. This year is a little different, with Days receiving six nominations, four of which we’re proud to say are actor nominations.

Congrats go out to:

Rachel Melvin (Chelsea)
Darin Brooks (Max)
Thaao Penghlis (Tony/Andre)
Judi Evans (Bonnie/Adrienne)

The show had also received a nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Hairstyling For a Drama Series and Outstanding Achievement in Makeup For a Drama Series. On Friday June 13, 2008, the As the World Turns makeup team took the award for Outstanding Achievement in Makeup For a Drama Series, however, DAYS took home a much deserved Daytime Emmy from the 35th Annual Daytime Creative Arts Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Hairstyling For a Drama Series! We’re happy to say that we predicted this and couldn’t be happier for the hairstyling team, Margie Puga, Matthew Holman, Garry Allyn, Kim Salvatore and Monica Sebedra!

What can you expect this evening at the 35th Daytime Emmy Awards? Glitz, glamor, and hopefully we’ll see DAYS take a few Emmys home!
