The Daytime Emmy Awards were a glorious celebration of the daytime drama that we all know and love. And for the first time in many years, soap opera fans were able to watch the ceremony on television — see the beautiful gowns, hear the lovely acceptance speeches, and smile at just how happy everyone in the daytime community looked to be back together, celebrating in person.
But for those who attended the Daytime Emmy Awards in person, the party started long before the televised ceremony — and continued way into the night! Luckily for the rest of us, performers from THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, DAYS OF OUR LIVES, GENERAL HOSPITALand THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS documented the day on social media. From getting ready for the big night to their car ride to the Pasadena Civic Center, walking along the red carpet to their tablemates at the ceremony, the after-parties, and the morning after, it’s all been immortalized on Instagram!
Like this sweet video of B&B’s John McCook (Eric), posted by his daughter, Molly. Hours before the king of the evening was crowned Outstanding Lead Actor, Molly helped her mom and dad get ready for his big night as if she herself was a proud mama sending her kid off to the prom!
