Welcome to Soaps.com’s 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards live blog for One Life to Live!
In case anyone missed the 35th Annual Creative Arts Awards last Friday night, One Life to Live walked away with awards in the following categories: Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design For A Drama Series, Outstanding Achievement in Lighting Direction For A Drama Series, and Outstanding Original Song (for both “Chemistry” and “Little Starr”)!
We can expect to see Kassie DePaiva (Blair), Michael Easton (John), Susan Haskell (Marty), John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex) and Farah Fath (Gigi) presenting awards tonight, so sit back and refresh this page often, as I’ll be updating the live blog with details regarding all of the One Life to Live action as I see it! Best of luck to the show and to Brian Kerwin, who has brought his character of Charlie to life and has intertwined him into a couple of very high profile storylines!
