Following last week’s revelation to her husband, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), that Dylan (Steve Burton) is actually Paul’s (Doug Davidson) son and not Ian Ward’s (Ray Wise), Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is nearly at a loss for words as she tells Paul that he’s Dylan’s father just as Dylan walks into the room. Meanwhile, Hillary (Mishael Morgan) is dabbling in a father/son triangle and potential “Who’s The Daddy?” territory with her upcoming nuptials to Neil (Kristoff St. John). Will Devon (Bryton James) be able to stop the wedding?

Finally, a new Billy hits the screen beginning Tuesday, June 24 when Burgess Jenkins takes over the role previously portrayed by David Tom and Billy Miller. Of course, he’s already shirtless bein that it’s summer time. It was only a matter of time…

Kathy Griffin, who is hosting this year’s kudocast, opened the show telling everyone to “work bitch” with music set to Britney Spears’ song of the same now, proving cursing is okay for an online telecast not needing commercials. She added an “F” bomb soon after that. Kathy also talked about how crappy last year’s awards was.

10 minutes into the show, no award has been handed out, but with no commercials, Kathy’s stand up stick is okay…for now. Kathy sped things up and introduced Billy Bush of “Access Hollywood,” who presented the first award of the night – Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series.

Of the nominees for Outstanding Supporting Actor, Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) to took home his first Daytime Emmy Award in his first nomination. He beat out “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer), “General Hospital’s” Bradford Anderson (ex-Damian Spinelli) and Dominic Zamprogna (Dante Falconeri) and “The Young and the Restless’” Steve Burton (Dylan McAvoy).

Bush then presented Outstanding Supporting Actress to Amelia Heinle for her portrayal of Victoria Newman from CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.” This is Heinle’s first nomination and first win after more than 20 years working in daytime television. An emotional Amelia beat out “Y&R” co-stars Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe Fisher), Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman), “GH’s” Kelly Sullivan and Jane Elliot (Tracy Quartermaine). Heinle thanked former “Y&R” co-star Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott), who is nominated tonight for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama series, in particular.

Casey Moss and Kate Mansi of NBC’s “Days of our Lives” presented Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program,but before getting things started they congratulated their co-star Eric Martsolf. The award went to “The People’s Court.” It beat out “Divorce Court,” “Judge Judy” and “Justice For All With Christina Perez.”

Outstanding Talk Show Host(s) was a tie between Dr. Mehmet Oz of “The Dr. Oz Show” and Katie Couric of “The Katie Couric Show.” Neither winner was here. The award was presented by Mario Lopez (host of “Extra”).

“Y&R’s” Sharon Case and Camryn Grimes presented Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team went to their very show, “The Young and the Restless.” The soap beat out “B&B” and “DAYS.”

Emmy nominees from “B&B” Scott Clifton and Kim Matula (Hope Logan) presented Outstanding Drama Series Directing Team with co-star Darin Brooks (Wyatt Fuller). “One Life to Live” picked up the award, to add to its tally from the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Friday night.

While he had plenty of material he could’ve chosen from during calendar year 2013 for his reel, ultimately he chose scenes that included on screen love interest and scene partner Tracey E. Bregman, where her character, Lauren Fenmore, was lying to Michael. “Just bold faced lies,” corrects Le Blanc with a smirk. “It was great. Tracey did amazing work, where it’s one of those ones where you just can’t, well, you don’t see that side of Lauren a lot, but she was just lying like a rug.” But how did that showcase Michael? “Well, I’m calling [Tracey] on it. It’s all that great wonderful stuff that [the writers] came up with. It was so believable and the dialogue was so painful. And I think we talked about this before, where it’s like, we rehearsed in the room and we’d be so upset, because it’s like being an old married couple after awhile. We’ve all known each other for so long, it’s like, ‘Oh god.’ You think you’ve heard it all before, but then they try this whole new, it’s like flexing a whole different muscle. We’d be crying in the dressing room going, ‘This is inappropriate for the scene! Why are we doing this? Let’s get it all out now.’”
