Watch your favorite soap stars at the Daytime Emmys Friday night

If you have a passion for Erica Kane, Victor Newman, or Ryan Lavery, then Friday night you don’t want to miss the 35th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

The show will air on ABC at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Cutie Cameron Mathison (All My Children, Dancing With the Stars) and cutie Sherri Shepherd (The View) are hosting the gig. In addition to all the pretty people from the daytime dramas, we’ll get to see plenty of daytime talk show hosts and game show hosts.

Prior to the show, you can catch all the red-carpet arrivals and interviews on SOAPnet, beginning at 6 p.m. ET.

As many of you know, I work part time for the fabulous daytime Web site, Soapcentral, writing the Two Scoops opinion column for As the World Turns. Soapcentral will have plenty of Emmy coverage at the site, including red-carpet interviews, after-party scoop, etc., courtesy of our fearless leader Dan.

I wasn’t exactly thrilled this year with the Emmy nominations. It was too heavily dominated by CBS shows. (For a complete list of nominees, click here.) The Younger Actress Category, specifically shocked me. How Kirsten Storms and Julie Marie Berman, of General Hospital, were overlooked in favor of three actresses on The Young and the Restless is inexplicable.

Still, I’ll be tuning in to see if any of my favorites win, especially my beloved Trent Dawson of As the World Turns for Supporting Actor. Go Trent!
