On May 9, the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington D.C. added artifacts that reflect the contributions of daytime television programming to the national entertainment collection in a special ceremony to mark a new partnership with the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Three-time Indie Soap Award winner Anthony Anderson from ANACASTIA covered the event WE LOVE SOAPS TV.
The donations--from ALL MY CHILDREN actress Susan Lucci, JEOPARDY! host Alex Trebek and BARNEY creators Kathy and Phil Parker—represented three of the primary Daytime Entertainment Emmy categories—daytime dramas, game shows and children's programming.
WE LOVE SOAPS TV spoke to all the contributors as well as museum director, John Gray, as well as NATAS chairman Malachy G. Wienges.

Plus, Susan Lucci reveals more about her character on the upcoming primetime soap opera DEVIOUS MAIDS and a possible return to ALL MY CHILDREN.http://welovesoapstv.com
