Fan Report: Emmy Awards
by Maryann Raymond
The Emmys Awards
are once again in the history books and while One Life To Live along with
many other of the ten daytime dramas were totally shut out from the acting
nominations, a small contingent from the show did attend the evenings
festivities at Radio City Music Hall in NYC on Friday May 18th.
P>The highlight of the evening for this OLTL fan was seeing Erika Slezak
presenting the award for "Best Actor In A Daytime Drama" to the very deserving
David Canary. David's portrayal of Adam and Stuart Chandler was and is indeed
one of Daytime's Best and truly deserved this recognition.

Erika congratulates David Canary
With this year's win, Canary
became the most honored performer in the Lead Actor category in Daytime Emmy
history. Ironically, the woman who presented him with this year's Emmy, One
Life to Live's Erika Slezak (Viki)had five wins of her own in the Lead
Actress field and is the most honored performer in the Lead Actress category
in Daytime Emmy history. David now joins Erika in
that elite group of two who have 5 times received an Emmy for their roles as
Best Actor/Actress In A Daytime Drama.
Erika was also honored in a montage of
Anniversary milestones for her 30 years in daytime.
