Ronn and I have been on a winning streak both personally and professionally in this past week. Starting with the Paul Newman event “Winning the race for charity” that we attended with Peter Beckett and Eden Ayers. Peter and Ronn performed at the Roosevelt Hotel along with members of “Little River Band” and “Toto.” Then we took off to Las Vegas with Peter and Eden to attend a private birthday party and got to see Winsor Harmon.
It was a rare weekend for us to reflect and celebrate winning some personal issues that we have been battling for quite some time, as well as, winning that Emmy nomination as producers on our amazing series, “The Bay.” We were in such gratitude and on a natural high just being with friends and enjoying the awesome music Peter and Ronn participated in along with other great artists, such as Jeff “Skunk” Baxter of the “Doobie Brothers” and “Steely Dan.”
When we arrived home it was time to celebrate with parties that were leading up to the Emmys. I was thrilled to see our long time Aussie friend, Fiona Horne and spend some quality time with her, while Ronn went to the festivities for Pop TV and got to see alot of his fellow soap stars. Since “The Bay” was put in the category of “New Approaches” and held with the creative Emmys on Friday, it was not televised. Apparently, Pop TV which is the former TV Guide network only wanted shows that were broadcast on television on the actual Emmys this year. We didn’t think that was fair considering it wasn’t that way last year, but nevertheless, it’s the same Emmy! Turns out “The Bay” beat out shows from Hulu and Youtube and took home that Emmy!
We couldn’t be more than thrilled for this amazing cast and crew! It is more than well deserved and TV Guide said, “The Bay blurred the lines between prime time and daytime television.” So I predict “The Bay” could find a home soon on primetime television and maybe be the first show to win both a daytime and primetime Emmy in the coming years.
Ronn and I chose not to attend the awards and instead see John McCook’s daughter Molly’s show, “Cruel Intentions the Musical.” It was an awesome musical and we got to see Katherine Kelly Lang, John McCook, Scott Clifton and Kim Matula there. By the time we arrived home to the news that we were now Emmy winning producers, it made our evening even more special.
We then attended the Emmy gifting suite and ran into more B&B soap stars we hadn’t seen in quite a while such as, Jacob Young and Ali Mills. Ronn and I will both get our Emmy in the mail soon and look forward to shooting the new season of “The Bay” next month!
All just Fabulous and wonderful news!! And THE EMMY!! well, what do you say to that? Except….Congratulations and WELL DESERVED!! So happy for both of you!! Woohoo….love and hugs, Pam
Hi you two Emmy-winning lovebirds! Good to hear since you guys work so hard. *Congratulations*
Love you, Lilian
Congratulations to you both on your Emmys! I’d love to catch the show, but I hardly watch anything on tv or online lately. I’ll have to make a note of watching it. What time or where could I find it?? It’s great that Ronn keeps in touch with his former B&B co-stars, and seeing them together pulls at my heartstrings. I’m betting that soon enough, ALL of the original key players will be off of this monstrosity. It’s just one big, huge embarrassment now. I dvr it but never end up watching it. Y&R too. Too bad something couldn’t be done to fix it. Maybe it’s time to put good night time ‘soaps’ on.
It’s hard to watch now I know the feeling. They had alienated their core audience. Young people don’t watch soaps! We can’t relate to all these kids that now dominate the show. Even Y&R is boring to me and that use to be my favorite. I watch GH now only. Go to http://www.thebaytheseries.com to see all 12 episodes.
Thanks for the link! We might have to switch to GH as a last resort. Maybe the initial actors on B&B and Y&R could come together for a really well-written night time soap! I’d pitch in with good storylines! 🙂
