What I learned at the Daytime Emmys by Anonymous

1) The Kodak Theater is in a mall. Thus, the Oscars are given out in a mall. While people in pretty clothes are walking in to get their awards, people in casual clothes are a few feet away from them, buying soft pretzels and snow-cones.

2) Many hundreds of people packed into a very narrow red-carpet trying to speak to print and electronic press while getting their picture taken does not make for a comfortable red carpet.

3) Wearing a dress with a train on said red carpet is probably not a good idea. I personally, did not. But I did step on many. Sorry, Emma Samms (Holly; GH). And Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren; Y&R).

4) The actors of Guiding Light were sincerely rooting for each other. Gina Tognoni (Dinah) was in the press-room after her win, and came running out of an interview when she heard Tom Pelphrey (Jonathan) had won; later, they posed together for the photographers with their Emmys. Tom took time out from doing the interview rounds to jump up and yell in delight when Kim Zimmer (Reva) won, and Kim and Jordan Clarke (Billy) refused to budge from a monitor until they’d gotten to watch Robert Newman (Josh) and Ron Raines (Alan) category called.

5) The highlight of ATWT’s Maura West’s (Carly) Emmy night was getting her picture taken backstage with Sesame Street's Elmo and Oscar.

6) Jennifer Landon (Gwen; ATWT) described her dress as part-vintage/part-vampire. She looked gorgeous and had half the auditorium crying with her speech.

7) Procter & Gamble Productions won five of six acting awards. CBS won six of the nine Daytime awards handed out. It was a very happy after-party.
