[ # ] Susan Lucci finally wins her second Daytime Emmy
June 16th, 2023 under Emmys, Maury Povich, Susan Lucci

Susan Lucci is as known for losing Emmys as she is for her legendary career as the Soap Queen. And in the near future, those two things will come together for her.

That is because the woman who was nominated 21 times, and only one once in 1999, is going to get her second Daytime Emmy. But how? All My Children hasn’t been on the air since 2011. That is because she is getting Lifetime Achievement Award at the 50th Daytime Emmys.

“I am truly humbled to receive this esteemed award from the Academy. Throughout my career, I have been incredibly fortunate to work alongside exceptional talents and embraced by my fans that have been with me every step of the way,” the actress said. “This honor is not just a reflection of my journey, but a testament to the enduring power of storytelling and the profound connection we are so lucky to forge with audiences all over the world through television.”

Lucci is not the only one getting the prestigious award this year. The recently retired Maury Povich is also getting it for his work with his daytime talk show, where many found out they are the father.

“I’m just blown away by this honor from the Academy,” the host said. “I have always had great respect for its work as I served on the National Board and was President of the New York Chapter. I guess if you hang around long enough, some good things happen. It’s been a 60+ year ride for me in this business, so I feel extremely blessed with this acknowledgment.”

When will we see them get the awards? That date has yet to be decided due to the Writers Guild of America’s strike. But when a date is set, I can’t wait to see them get the honor they so richly deserve.
