HLN is tweeting their planning meeting for the Daytime Emmy telecast and one of the first things they tweeted is that Outstanding Morning Show is going to be the last award presented at the Daytime Emmy's.

This will be the first time since the Daytime Emmy's inception that Outstanding Drama Series is not the last award of the night.

For the first time, the #DaytimeEmmys award for best morning show will be the final award if the night. Will it be @todayshow or @gma ?

Other highlights:

-A promise of a "return to glamour"
-Best Culinary Show is also going to be presented for the first time at the main ceremony.

Yep. Someone take this damn show outback and shoot it. I'm done with it. Daytime critics need to come up with their own show and if the actors don't want to embrace it they can go fuck themselves. THe Emmys are a joke and its becoming more about the soap actors getting the PRIVILEGE of bumping shoulders with the legendary Rachel Rays and Dr. Oz's. Give me a fucking break.

Some people have been tweeting HLN about being pissed that Drama Series is not the final award, like it traditionally is.

SOD should just have their own official awards & we should do away with the Emmys. This is effing ridiculous. Of course, with only 4 shows left, does it even matter anymore?

It is totally weird that they changed it up, but this isn't the Daytime Soap Awards it is for all of Daytime television. I really don't care what order it is announced. I just hope they have kickass tributes for AMC and OLTL.

Eh. That doesn't really bother me. As long as it's presented at some point in the night. Hell, I wouldn't mind the daytime drama categories being the first awards presented so I can turn the channel afterwards.

Same. I could care less about the rest of the crap.

I don't give a mouses ass about the other categories either...but I still feel it is an act of disrespect towards daytime dramas by unseating it as the final award of the evening when it has been a long-standing tradition to present it last.

Why does this make it sound as though the soaps are only an after thought?

Yeah. Tributes to the soaps sound terrible. While I would like to see AMC and OLTL get proper sendoffs because last year was a fucking disgrace and a slap in the face to any soap fan...I don't like this wording when it comes to the soaps that still exist. It makes it sound like they are going to get a 15 second video package for each soap and that's it. I want clips from the reels when each nominee is announced. I want soap stars presenting the awards to other soap stars. I don't want Nancy Grace presenting Lead Actor In A Drama Series. This is going to be a total disaster. Could actually be WORSE than the Vegas additions of this show. Please for the love of God end the Emmys after this year and come up with something new.

I don't see HOW it could be worse than Vegas Promotion 101 last year....

I hope they just keep it simple, make it ABOUT daytime (all aspects of it), show the damn acting clips/show clips, and cut the damn frilly filler crap out of it.

I don't care about talk shows, health shows, or cooking shows so for me personally it could get worse. I do agree I was probably exaggerating though. At least we won't get stupid Vegas promoting clips. But I have a bad feeling that this is going to be more of a slap in the face to soaps because of the wording of some things they have said. Seems like soaps are a major afterthought here. As little time as they were given for the Vegas Emmys they still headlined the show. They can't even get that now. I will be super happy if we get any actor/actress clips and some soap videos but I have my doubts.
