"All My Children" aired its last episode on Friday, after 41 years on ABC. The series was one of the most successful in history the Daytime Emmys. Has attracted as many as 30 nominations for best drama series, winner 1992, 1994 and 1998. "AMC" may be granted to struggle with the awards next year.
The cast of "AMC" has won a record 28 Emmy Awards. Just before the start of the Emmys days Mary Fickett was recognized in the 1973 Primetime Emmy Awards for her portrayal of Ruth Martin.
Darnell Williams won both media (1983) and lead (1985), Jesse Hubbard, awards, half of the first African-American super couple of daytime TV. As Angie Hubbard, Debbie Morgan, is the only African-American actress to win the Daytime Emmys. After losing the 1986 race offered Young Actress Supporting Actor in 1989 he won the tie with Nancy Grahn from "Santa Barbara". It 'was nominated for Best Actress in 2009 and 2011.
Dorothy Lyman, who played Opal Gardner won a supporting actress in 1982 and then bring the prize the following year.
David Canary garnered 16 offers for Best Actor 1985 to 2008, winning five times. He played two of the most beloved characters in the history of the series - ruthless entrepreneur Adam Chandler, who cared more about making a quick profit to his family, and its twin, the naive, sweet, mental Stuart Chandler. Playing two such different people made of the remarkable range of the Canaries.
More than four decades after its creation, the characters created by Agnes Nixon (pictured below) still fresh in our minds. My first memory of Pine Valley is not that glamorous or rich Erica Kane Phoebe Tyler (Ruth Warrick), but the ongoing struggle between the generations to understand each other.
While many other daytime drama pivoted in fantasy and science fiction in the 1970s and 1980s, "AMC" has remained true to its roots with stories about real problems. "AMC" has paved the way for a serious discussion about the Vietnam War, racism, AIDS, homosexuality, abortion, rape, incest and drug abuse on the daytime drama.
The quality continues to "AMC" because the hard work of its creator benevolent. It was his passion and vision that has kept the series on target for so many years. "AMC" just went off the rails when other writers and network executives disturbed, and it was a show about sex and skin. The feeling of "home" once we got to look at "AMC" has been replaced by a feeling of "What do they do for my show?"
It is with a heavy heart I write this farewell to a show I loved for decades. I thank this amazing cast and crew during the decades of joy and enlightenment that have provided millions of loyal viewers with us.
