It was a PEOPLE magazine cover to honor Susan Lucci's first Emmy victory, and now it will join the permanent collection at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

Also donated was an original copy of the magazine, and Lucci completed the offering with an autographed copy of an original All My Children script from when she played TV vixen Erica Kane.

Dancing with the Stars: Tony Dovolani & Cheryl Burke Reveal All-Stars Wish List

Originally posted 07/12/2012 08:05PM

No one knows exactly who will compete on the all-star season of Dancing with the Stars in the fall – not even the pros. But Cheryl Burke and Tony Dovolani have their wish lists when it comes to which celebrities should return.

"I would love to see winners, finalists and controversial characters come back," Burke, 28, told PEOPLE at Wednesday's ESPY Awards in Los Angeles.

"Every season there are those one or two contestants who really stand out," she said. "If we have a mixture of winners, people switching partners, maybe I would be with my original partner, or Karina [Smirnoff] would be with her original partner, but having it mixed and matched, would be really interesting."

POLL: Should ABC Cancel All My Children? | Susan Lucci

All My Children: Should ABC Cancel It?

Originally posted 03/22/2011 07:00PM

All My Children has been a daytime TV staple since 1970 – but has the show and its fictitious Pine Valley, Penn., setting outworn its welcome?

Rumors of cancellation are circling around the popular show that finally delivered Susan Lucci her Daytime Emmy. Various reports claim that ABC is considering reducing its afternoon drama lineup from three to two hours to make room for a new talk show, which could send AMC to the chopping block.

But a rep for ABC Daytime shoots down the claims, telling PEOPLE in a statement, "The Deadline.com piece is just the latest story in a long line of stories about this same topic."

As of now, the rep adds, "There is no change for the current ABC daytime schedule."

It's not like she has to cross the wild prairie to get there, but for Susan Lucci the idea of moving west with her daytime drama All My Children is a overwhelming.

"We just found out a day and a half ago, and we've been dancing a marathon at All My Children ever since," the actress, 62, told PEOPLE at Thursday's New York City Feed the Children's Daytime Gives Back event. "So, we're all walking around in shock."

What's Lucci's game plan for moving from New York (where AMC stops filming in December) to Los Angeles (where it starts up again Jan. 4)? "I don't know ... I love the show and I love playing Erica [Kane]," says the Scarsdale native who even went to college in New York. "But I'm just now going to have a couple of days off. It's a lot to think about."

Everyone Loves Lucci

Her nineteenth Daytime Emmy Award nomination was the magic number for Susan Lucci, who finally won the best actress trophy for her role as the villainous Erica Kane on ABC's "All My Children." The veteran actress admitted to feeling slightly bewildered at the Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony in New York Friday night when presenter Shemar Moore of "The Young and the Restless" shouted out that the streak had been broken and then announced Lucci as the winner. Experts had considered this year to be one of Lucci's best shots at winning due to her performance when Erica held a hospital vigil over her anorexic daughter. A genuinely happy audience leapt to its feet when the winner's name was announced and howled in protest when producers tried to cut off the actress's acceptance speech.
