Before becoming Thor for millions of fans in the "Thor" film series or "The Avengers" cinematic universe, actor Chris Hemsworth was probably best known for his role on the Australian soap "Home and Away," where he played Kimberly Jonathan "Kim" Hyde. Now a major movie star, Hemsworth has graced the cover of People Magazine as its "Sexiest Man Alive!" He's not the only one though as several of daytime's biggest and brightest stars of today and yesterday have also made the annual list of sexy men, which hits newsstands today.

Last night marked the 66th annual Directors Guild of America Awards Dinner at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, but none of today's daytime drama directors received a nomination. Why? Because the "Daytime Serials" category was integrated into the "Dramatic Series" category following a June 22, 2013 DGA National Board meeting that voted on rule changes, which forces daytime and primetime dramas to compete against internet distributed dramas such as "House of Cards," which essentially leaves daytime itself shut out from ever receiving a nomination as the dynamics of daytime is no where near the likes of 2013 nominees "Breaking Bad" (AMC), "Game of Thrones" (HBO), "Homeland" (Showtime), or even the aforementioned "House of Cards" (Netflix). "Bad" won the award for those wondering.

The numbers have been tallied, and “The Young and the Restless” has made the list of the top 10 most searched for TV programs of 2013!

In film, AFI chose "12 Years a Slave, " "American Hustle," "Captain Phillips," Fruitvale Station," "Gravity," "Her," Inside Llewyn Davis," "Nebraska," "Saving Mr. Banks," and "The Wolf of Wall Street."

It’s incontrovertible that “Days of our Lives” James Scott (EJ DiMera) is drop dead gorgeous. He has an impressive 6-foot-something stature, model good looks, a smooth British accent, perfectly polished style and... scrapes all over his hands. (Record scratch.) Yes, when the English native recently sat down with Soap Opera Network for an exclusive interview, he had numerous red scratches marring his otherwise perfect digits. And suddenly, he was all the sexier. Especially when he quipped of the wounds: “Oh, I did a love scene with Alison [Sweeney, Sami] yesterday.”
