As previously reported on Friday, June 6, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences issued a casting call for hosts of its red carpet/social media presentation set to air preceding “The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” on Sunday, June 22. The program will be executive produced by Paul Colichman and Stephen Jarchow of Here Media. Today, NATAS announced that they have hired social media experts Brittany Furlan, Lauren Elizabeth, Jessica Harlow and Meghan Rosette.
The breakdown for the casting of the above called for millennials between the ages of 18-35, all ethnicities, who have a strong entertainment news background and/or very strong social media following (300,000 followers minimum). As evidenced by their Twitter, Vine, Facebook and YouTube followers, likes and subscribers, it looks like NATAS found the right women for the job.
Even though “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom (Katie Logan) has previously been nominated for 15 Daytime Emmy awards and is the only person in history to have won in all three actor categories (three times in the Outstanding Younger Actress category, once in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category and twice in the Outstanding Lead Actress category), her recent Lead Actress nomination still feels special.
“It’s a huge honor, of course,” she says. “And it’s kind of amazing that I’ve had a job for that long, doing what I love to do, so I’m super grateful for that. And I mean, honestly, going to work every day, and especially going to work at ‘The Bold and the Beautiful,’ is really the biggest reward. I know that sounds very trite, but it’s true! We always have fun, and I love to celebrate daytime, so it’s a good time.”
As has become tradition, CBS’ “The Talk” will celebrate “The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” on Monday, June 23, the day after the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences awards daytime’s Outstanding Actors, Personalities and Shows.

Senior Vice President of CBS Daytime, Angelica McDaniel, took to Twitter today to announce that the network’s number one soap opera, “The Young and the Restless,” has made a behind-the-scenes change: The show’s publicist, Jimmy Freeman, has stepped into the role of Associate Producer!
“Congratulations @YRJimmyF on being promoted to associate producer!” the exec tweeted earlier this morning.
The term “whirlwind” doesn’t even come close to describing the recent life of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Kim Matula (Hope Logan). In addition to accepting “B&B’s” ninth consecutive Golden Nymph award at the International TV Audience Awards during the 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival in Monte Carlo this month and just finishing filming on location in Paris, France, she’s still basking in the recent news that she officially received her very first Emmy nomination!
“The day the nominations came out, I woke up at six in the morning to a phone call from my parents in Texas, and [initially], I was so concerned: I was like, ‘Oh God, who died? What’s happening!’” she says with a laugh. “I was freaking out, but then my mom reminded me that the nominations had come out that morning, and she was so excited to tell me I’d been nominated.”
After appearing on CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” for the past couple of years in a somewhat recurring capacity, actress Eileen Davidson has signed a contract with the Sony Pictures Television produced soap, which guarantees fans will be seeing a lot more of Ashley Abbott on a more consistent basis.
“They has [sic] been reaching out for quite a while and wondering what I wanted, so the deal we made suits my life very well,” Davidson told Soap Opera Digest of her signing on. “I’m really happy. I’ve put in a lot of years in this medium, which I don’t take for granted, so I’m very grateful.”

ABC Studios has extended the cast option for its ABC pilot, “Clementine,” which features “The Young and the Restless’” McKenna Grace (ex-Faith Newman) and Kevin Alejandro (“Ugly Betty”), reports Deadline.
While ABC opted not to give a series order to the pilot last month, when the network announced its new and returning series for the 2014-2015 television season as part of its upfront presentation, the online trade says that the studio behind the project didn’t want to lose the talented cast whose options were set to expire at the end of this month. The pilot also starred Sarah Snook, Mykelti Williamson, David Strathairn, Edwin Hodge, Kathleen Munroe and Nick Gehlfuss.
