EXECUTIVE PRODUCER KEN CORDAY ACCEPTANCE SPEECH FOR RECEIVING DAYTIME EMMY AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING DAYTIME DRAMA SERIES:
"Pinch me! Somebody pinch me! Thank you. Thank you. Wow...really
worth the wait. 38 years, ladies and gentlemen. Unbelievable! I'd like to thank
so many people. Please don't start the music yet. I'd like to thank NBC, Bruce
Evans and Rebecca McGill. I'd like to thank Sony Pictures, Steve Mosko and Steve
Kent. I'd like to thank out brilliant producers, all around me...Lisa De
Cazotte, Greg Meng and this cast, this unbelievably beautiful cast. This is a
dream. This is a dream to be here, for me, and for all of us. Just a moment to
tell you a quick story. Ted and Betty Corday started the show in 1965. It
received its only Emmy Award for best daytime show in 1975, 38 years ago. Today
is breaking the ice again. Thank you to all the other nominees. Today is
Father's Day. Today is my birthday. And today is a great day to celebrate. Thank
CORRECTION TO LAST "DAYS" EMMY WIN:
Ken Corday, in the thrill of victory, accidentally mixed up his 5's and 8's...instead of "Days" winning 38 years ago in 1975, they actually won for best show 35 years ago in 1978!
CHANDLER MASSEY ACCEPTANCE SPEECH FOR RECEIVING DAYTIME EMMY AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING YOUNGER ACTOR:
"Hi. First of all, I'd like to thank everyone at NBC and Corday
and the amazing cast and crew and the writers and producers. All the credit goes
to you guys. Also, this isn't fair, because I have the best actor to work
alongside and that's Freddie Smith. Freddie, you are phenomenal. You are
absolutely incredible and it's my privilege to work with you. Also, I want to
thank Maria O'Brien, the acting coach at Days. I wouldn't have a job if you
weren't there. I'd be fired. And Greg (Meng) and Lisa (De Cazotte), thank you so
much. I'd like to thank you as well. And also, Ryan Farentino, my manager; Jeff
Ballard, my publicist; Charlie; and also my family. My mom, thank you so much.
Camille, Christian, Cameron, Mimi and Poppa, I love you. Everyone's thanking
their dads. I want to thank...Happy Grandfather's Day to you, Poppa, and Dad as
well, thank you. Happy Father's Day. I love you. And Cameron, I said. That's it.
I mean...thank you so much. Thanks...Please wrap up. Okay, alright,
"DAYS OF OUR LIVES" WINS TWO
EMMYS AT CREATIVE ARTS CEREMONY!!
Stunt Coordinator Terry James...Re-Recording Mixer Zoli Osaze...Production Mixer Roger Cortes
Boom Operators Jackie Frazier, Hector Sarabia & Harry Young
Congratulations to stunt coordinator Terry James and the "Days" sound mixing team (re-recording mixer Zoli Osaze, production mixer Roger Cortes, and boom operators Jacqueline Frazier, Hector Sarabia and Harry Young) on winning Daytime Emmys at tonight's Creative Arts ceremony!! "Days" has now received a total of 34 Daytime Emmys in its 48 years on the air.
Terry James (who also won for stunt coordination last year) becomes just the 19th person to win multiple Emmy Awards for "Days." This is the first time "Days" has won the sound mixing award since 1974. The five members of the sound mixing team each won their first Emmys for "Days" tonight. It is a bittersweet win for the sound mixing team, since the three long-time boom operators (Jackie Frazier, Hector Sarabia and Harry Young) were replaced in January due to changes made at NBC Burbank.
