"Today in Soap Opera History" is a collection of the most memorable, interesting and influential events in the history of scripted, serialized programs. From birthdays and anniversaries to scandals and controversies, every day this column celebrates the soap opera in American culture.

On this date in...

1966: On Dark Shadows, Victoria (Alexandra Moltke) accused Elizabeth (Joan Bennett) of knowing something about her past.

1979: Oscar nominee Quinn Redeker debuted as Alex Marshall in Days of our Lives. It wasn't long before he was dating DAYS co-star Deidre Hall (Marlena).

1980: Caryn Richman and Randy Hamilton debuted on Another World as their Texas characters Elena and Rikki Dekker. Elena sang at Mike Marshall's funeral. Texas premiered on August 4th.

1984: Jermaine Jackson and Whitney Houston taped their August guest appearance at the As the World Turns studio in New York.

Happy 21st Birthday, Jillian Clare!

Jillian Clare's 1st birthday party
With all the talk of the Royal Baby this week, and the flashbacks to old Princess Diana clips, it really drove home the point that "time flies." And I'm not just talking about soap opera characters aging rapidly. After posting our daily "Today in Soap Opera History" column I commonly tweet phrases like "25 years ago today" or "30 years ago today" and so many readers respond having the same memories and also realizing how many years have gone by and just how much time we've dedicated to watching our stories.

On Thursday's birthday list is the young, accomplished Jillian Clare, who turns 21 years old today. It seems Jillian has packed a whole career into those 21 years. In 2003-2004 she played Abigail Deveraux in DAYS OF OUR LIVES. From 2010-2013 she produced and starred in the Indie Soap Award-winning web series MISS BEHAVE. She recently guest-starred in ABC'c SUBURGATORY and hit Canadian series CLUTCH.

It's her movie career that's about to shoot her into superstardom though with roles in The Kitchen, Freak the Freak Out, and the upcoming By God's Grace.

Join us in wishing Jillian a Happy 21st Birthday today (how old does this make me?). You can tell her yourself on Twitter (@jillianclare). And check out a brand new photo below -- she's a red head now!

4th Annual Indie Soap Awards Nominations Announced

4th Annual Indie Soap Awards Nominations Announced Today

- Surge of "extraordinary" shows this year; committee "inspired;" faced with "excruciating choices."
DEVANITY and OUT WITH DAD most nominated drama series; HUSBANDS, THE BLOODY MARY SHOW,  and PRETTY most nominated comedies.
- Winners to be announced Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at legendary awards show.

New York, NY (December 17, 2012) - Could this be a turning point in the history of Television? The entire world wide web?

"After breaking all these records (to begin with, we had the most submissions ever and the most nominations ever) we faced a daunting task.  Excruciating choices.  Haggling and horse trading were at an all-time high. But the quantity of high quality made it all worthwhile.  We were definitely inspired.

"But honestly, we barely avoided fisticuffs during the final meeting! There just has never been so much carnage after reducing each category to only six nominees," said We Love Soaps founder Roger Newcomb.

"We used to argue on behalf of a potential nominee, 'it's so good, it could be on TV.'  This time, to make the cut, it had to be, 'this is excellent, it's better than anything on TV!'  It's extraordinary. I think we've passed an historic landmark for the genre.  In so many ways, the shows on this list are better than the scripted, serialized programming on network Television.  Than anything on network Television." 

Over 40 web series received at least one nomination.  Almost 100 were submitted.  To be considered, among other qualifications, shows had to be independent, scripted, professional and serialized. And, they had to broadcast at least three episodes in 2012.  In addition to general excellence in TV programming, a special premium is placed on series which follow the mission of the Awards' charity sponsor, the Indie Series Network.  Their mission is to bring quality, independently-produced TV series, with socially relevant messaging and artistic merit, to under-served audiences.

Happily, everyone who worked on one of the series that was accepted for consideration, whether nominated or not, is invited (and encouraged) to attend the enormous, star-studded, industry-only gala celebration planned for February 19, 2013 at New World Stages in New York City. All-access Guest Passes for the event (really a series of events) just went on sale - at a discount, early bird rate, for now. Series will all be able to sit together for the actual Award Presentation Ceremony as long as they reserve their assigned seats before January 5.

NOW, THE NOMINEES
DEVANITY and OUT WITH DAD led all drama series with nine nominations each.  HUSBANDS, THE BLOODY MARY SHOW and PRETTY each had nine nominations on the comedy side.

Complete list of 4th Annual Indie Soap Awards nominations:

BEST WEB SERIES (DRAMA)

How u doin, my Indie brothers and sisters? Did you miss me?

Kevin's Indie House wasn't "in de house" last week because Kevin was on duty for the 39th Annual Daytime Entertainment Creative Arts Emmy Awards.  Aside from a nice little LA chat with Gloria Allred (I get around) the most jazzy part of my most recent adventure on The Lesser Coast was being present for the presentation of the Emmy for the obscure (but groundbreaking) Outstanding Special Class Short Format Daytime (OSCSFD) category.

Yes, Virginia, there IS an Emmy for Indies!

No doubt they're wallowing in the gratuitous raunch they've created, even as you read this. Well! I hope they're proud of themselves.
