THE 2001 DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS

As I entered the Radio City Music Hall
for a pre-tape for the 2001 Daytime Emmy Awards,
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.
 

  REDHEADS RULE!

THE 1999 DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS

What an exciting year to have worked this show!
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.
Congratulations, Susan!

  We go back many many years on this show.
When I first began working it, it was held at the Waldorf Astoria ballroom
and for a week and a half preceding the show,
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, isn't she.
