One Life to Live began airing on network television on July 15, 1968. From 1968-1976 the show was only 30 minutes long, but then developed into a 45-minute show during the years 1976-1978. Eventually, however, OLTL became an hour-long show towards the end of 1978, and continues to be today. As of February 29, 2008, there have been 10,140 episodes produced. The original creator of OLTL was one of soap opera’s best-known writers and producers, Agnes Nixon. Ms. Nixon was often referred to as the “Queen” of the modern soap opera. In 1970, after successfully creating OLTL, Ms. Nixon went on to start the production of a new soap opera, entitled All My Children and until 1992 was also involved in the writing of every AMC episode produced. Later, Ms. Nixon went on to produce the soap opera, Loving, which aired from 1983-1995. The current Executive Producer of OLTL is Frank Valentini, whom has spent most of his career working on the show in some capacity since 1985. The current Head Writer is Ron Carlivati, ...
Another nod to the upcoming Oscars: Cate Blanchett How many of you think Cate is English? She's not! She was born in Melbourne Australia to an Australian mum and a Texan dad. After studying at Australia's National Institute for Dramatic Arts, Ms. Blanchett went on to perform in some of our best loved classical plays and some of our best loved newer plays, garnishing her too many theatre awards to count. Some of the productions she has performed in are Hamlet (Ophelia), The Tempest (Miranda), The Seagull (Nina), Hedda Gabler (Hedda Gabler) and A Streetcar Named Desire (Blanche DeBois) and, just to change it up a bit, The *** Monologues, to name just a small selection. Ms. Blanchett has performed in Sydney, Australia; Washington DC; and London's West End. Cate Blanchett has won: 1 Sydney Theatre Critics Circle Rosemont Best Lead Actress Award (wow, that's a long award name!); 2 Helpmann Awards for Best Female Actor in a Play; 2 Helen Hayes Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Non-Resident Producti ...
