DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS
As I entered the Radio City Music
for a pre-tape for the 2001 Daytime Emmy
I was struck by how beautiful the nearly
bare stage is
in its earliest incarnation.
The pre-tape was with Anne Robinson, host
of The Weakest Link.
THE 1999 DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS
What an exciting year to have worked this
After 19 nominations, SUSAN
LUCCI finally won the Leading Actress category!
Years ago I worked as an actress for
4 1/2 years on ALL MY CHILDREN,
and promptly fell in love with Susan's
warmth, professionalism, and talent.
We go back many many years on
When I first began working it, it was
held at the Waldorf Astoria ballroom
and for a week and a half preceding the
we printed award show size cards on our
hands and knees.
These were then placed on a huge easel,
and as one person handed them off to
a second who caught them,
a third would be in the back making changes
as new script came in.
My job is considerably easier now!
I held half cards for Dick Clark for
a pre-tape of a promo that was inserted into the credits squeeze of Candid
Camera, the show immediately preceding the awards telecast.
She certainly is beautiful,
