Insider tidbits on the 1999 Daytime Emmy Awards

Bon Appetite

This year, the Daytime Emmy Awards dinner was held on site at Madison Square Garden. According to a well-placed source, dinner was served in the Rotunda, the same area where, when the Circus comes to town, the elephants are staged. Talk about a three-ring surprise! A spokesperson for the Garden said that the floors are power washed and disinfected when the elephants pack their trunks and leave. The room is repainted and carpets are installed. It is then decorated to befit an Awards ceremony, complete with plants and more of that drape and pipe. Dessert anyone? Avoid the chocolate cakes!

Guns and Rosie's

Rosie O'Donnell won two Emmys this year: Outstanding Talk Show and Outstanding Talk Show Host. In light of the controversy surrounding her uncomfortable on-air interview with Tom Selleck, a spokesperson for the NRA (National Riflemen's Association), several days before, neither she, nor any member of her staff, visited the press room. "Rosie will not be joining us," a CBS spokesperson informed the journalists. "She doesn't want to put herself in the position to be questioned on the Tom Selleck matter."

Past Blast

Days of our Lives' Brendan Michael Coughlin enjoys playing Tad and being a new dad

When asked what it is like to play Tad on Days of our Lives, Brendan Michael Coughlin shouts exuberantly, "I love him!"

Coughlin has been playing the so-called behind the scenes instigator for the last two years. He has no family that is ever mentioned on the show, but he is there. He came on as Will's (Guy Wilson) best friend, but when it became clear that Will was gay, Tad did everything but bash and degrade and mock him. The irony? At the recent wedding of Will and Sonny (Freddie Smith), he was best man. Go figure!

"I know. It has been a wild ride. I did a whole turn around, and I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed doing the wedding. I really enjoy playing this guy. He is a total goof-off. He means well, but is always on the wrong side of the rope." Coughlin said. "I have grown to love him. He is comic relief. I always had dramatic roles, so this is fun."
