The Grand Entrance
Come Back Soon For Part 2!!!
The 29th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were held on May 19th, 2002, at Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City - and was broadcast in on the CBS Television network.
Unlike previous years, the stars launched at the same place as the ceremony was held. They arrived in a royal-like entrance on red carpet, where fans were awaiting them. As the whether was threatening to wet the glamouros stars, some at-home fans were unable to watch the ceremony on TV. SoapNet, a special network, just for soaps, aired the edited ceremony the following night.
Making the first soapy royal appearance was THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS' Heather Tom (Victoria) with her bau. She was soon followed by many fellow stars - both from in front and behind the cameras.
Y&R's Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) made a grand entrance, shwoing her gown - only to change to an American flag gown later! (Stay Tuned For These Priceless Pictures!)
For ALL MY CHILDREN's Susan Lucci (Erica), coming back to Madison Square Garden was a real homecoming - she won her Outstanding Lead Actress award there back in 1999!
GENERAL HOSPITAL's John Ingle (Edward) and his wife looked very elegant:
Hi, there! Last year's Outstanding Lead Actor, ALL MY CHILDREN's David Canary (Adam), was accompanied by his wife to this year's awards:
And here is David's co-star, Eden Riegel (Bianca), excited to be nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress!
GH's Jacob Young got Lucky as he won the Outstanding Younger Actor award, and had his girlfriend there to cheer!
Smile for the cameras!
Jacob's former on-screen wife (ex-Rick), THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL's Adrienne Frantz (Amber) won the Outstanding Younger Actress award last year, and was getting ready to present the Lead Actress award with Rick's current portrayer, Younger Actor nominee and last year's winner, Just Torkildsen.
Adrienne was all smiles on Friday!
Outstanding Lead Actor winner, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS' Peter Bergman (Jack), walked down the red carpet with his two leading ladies, Susan Walters (Diane, left) and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis).
AS THE WORLD TUNRS' Jon Hensley (Holden, middle) was more excited about his wife, mother of his children and co-star Kelley Minighan Hensley's (Emily) snomination than he was about his own last year! Here they are with mutual co-star, Outstanding Supporting Actor nominee Benjamin Hendrickson (Hal):
After 21 years of portraying Josh on GUIDING LIGHT, Robert Newman was finally nominated for a Lead Actor award. He brought wife Britt Helfer (ex-Lily, LOVING) along for support.
B&B's Jennifer Finnigan (Bridget) and her date:
DAYS OF OUR LIVES' Alison Sweeny (Sami) took a moment to be interviewed by Soap City.
Supporting Actor Nominee PORT CHARLES' Brian Presley (Jack) proposed to co-star Erin Hershey (Alison) during the latest Super Soap Weekend, held in California. They made sure to find some cuddle-time during Emmy night.
Newlyweds Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas, GH) and Eva Longoria (Isabella, Y&R) looked very happy:
ATWT's Terri Colombino (Katie) came to support her on-screen hubby, Paul Leyden (Simon), who was nominated for Supporting Actor.
Finola Hughes was nominated this year in the Lead Actress category for her portrayal of Anna, a role she won an Emmy for in 1991, during her time on GH. After winning this year's award, Susan Flannery (Stephanie, B&B) said she was sure Finola would be the winner this year too.
