Inside the Bubble Bitty Bubbles
There was a change of venue this year for Los Angeles portion of the 31st Annual Daytime Emmy Creative Craft Achievement Awards. Previously, the event was held the Century Plaza Hotel in the Century City area of Los Angeles. This year, event promoters moved the location to the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland entertainment complex. What was particularly enchanting about the new venue was that stars and the behind the scenes members of the shows got to mingle for champagne and hors d’ouvres outside on the veranda prior to the awards ceremony, taking advantage of the beautiful sun-drenched evening in Hollywood. After the ceremony, a buffet dinner was served.
Although black was definitely the color of the evening, most notably executed by General Hospital's Tamara Braun (Carly) who dazzled in her elegant black satin sheathe, there was a fair amount of color with tones of red and pink being quite popular. Passions stars Heidi Mueller (Kay) and network television newcomer, Silvana Arias (Paloma) wore shades of passionate pink. From head-to-toe, even the Passions publicist was color-coordinated in pink tones. Evening co-host Lisa Rinna wore stunning sandals and a skin tight reddish pink spaghetti strapped ensemble. Melody Thomas Scott (Niki, Y&R) donned a peach number with a whisp of a shawl to cover her shoulders. Co-star Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) was decked out in pink satin. General Hospital's Alicia Leigh Willis (Courtney) wowed in scarlet red satin. Plus -- There were some surprise guests, even a Vulcan stopped by!
Awards Ceremony Co-Hosts Ty Treadway and Lisa Rinna from SoapTalk pose for photographers on the red carpet. There were two rather rude and dishseveled-looking photographers covering this event. It is no wonder the papparrazzi get a bad wrap. These two were obnoxious and downright annoying, with personalities like dishrags. The other photographers and journalists were all quite pleasant, hard-working and considerate of their colleagues when it came time for everyone to get their shot. But I digress. Here we see Ty Treadway just prior to the awards ceremony. The next time he appears, he is dressed as a Vulcan introducing the evening with co-host Lisa Rinna. Not sure whose idea the Vulcan thing was, but Ty did look awfully cute with pointed ears.

It's Passions pink for Silvana Arias (Paloma) and Heidi Mueller (Kay). By the way, Paloma premieres on Passions on Monday, May 17, 2004. Be sure to tune in because we have a sneaking suspicion that her presence will cause quite a ripple in Harmony. Our sources tell us that she will impact many lives!
CBS icons, Melody Thomas Scott (Niki, Y&R), Ed Scott (Supervising Producer, Y&R) and Don Hewitt on the extreme left. Hewitt is the man behind 60 Minutes. Not sure who the lovely lady is to his right, Mrs. Hewitt perhaps? Or another 60 Minutes producer?
The maid with the mostest! Y&R's Kate Linder (Esther) decked to the nines.
Surprise attendee, DOOL's Patrika Darbo (ex Nancy) was delighted to pose with her daughter on the red carpet.
Always ready with a big smile, Y&R's Keith Hamilton Cobb (Damon). So much for the read carpet. Let's head on inside...
Don't ya just love a man in a tux? Bold and the Beautiful's Joseph Mascolo (Massimo) and John McCook (Eric) do not disappoint! Talk about your distinguished gents.
DOOL's Eric Winter (Rex) and Farah Fath (Mimi). Farah looked simply gorgeous. And Eric -- well, ahem. Need I say more?
The two presenters from General Hospital were inseperable the whole evening. Tamara Braun (Carly) and Alicia Leigh Willis (Courtney)
Tamara Braun wanted to be sure photographers captured her gorgeous dress. Doesn't she look like royalty?
Y&R's Keith Hamilton Cobb (Damon) and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) hamed it up for the cameras. We learned from Stafford that she will be wearing Harry Winston jewels at the Emmy Awards broadcast in New York City. Check back for our mini interview with Stafford coming this week.
Melody Thomas Scott was ravishing in her peach off-the-shoulder ensemble.
Don't they make a cute couple? Y&R's Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), who is so much fun, couldn't resist posing with AMC's William deVry (ex Michael Cambias). Both Stafford and deVry are nominated for Daytime Emmys this year.
