I am of course, thrilled for Maura, Michael, and Julie's win. I am so proud to have had the opportunity to watch Michael and Maura through the years - and Julie, a more recent addition, but nonetheless, fit right in with the other outstanding actors on ATWT. Now for the questions - inquiring minds want to know, and can you SOD get us the answers - why, on earth was time wasted on trivial and off-topic items, while the tribute to ATWT was so short? I was very disappointed. Every one of those actors should hve been up on the stage to receive the applause they deserved for all that they, and the writers have done for daytime soaps. Outrageous. Second, why wasn't anything at all said about Helen Wagner? For heaven's sake. Now my opinion - there is a lot of talk about if soaps will survive. The actors are mostly superb, the storylines classic. However, networks like CBS couldn't give a hoot - no Red Carpet, and nothing this AM on CBS This Morning. Ho, hum - they don't care. I think soaps need to continue to look at innovative options, including possibiities on cable stations. For example, short-episode cable series are thriving. Better to have a limited but recurring series, than no show at all. For I do believe they all will be gone soon, if creative people do not find a way to save them in a new form. Consider. Thank you!
