HLN, the host network of the annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Awards, has announced additional presenters for the awards telecast, now in its 40th year, presented live from The Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 16, 8-10 p.m., ET/PT.

HLN, which is scheduled to air the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, has released the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series Nominee Reels in anticipation of the Sunday, June 16 telecast. The nominees are "The Young and the Restless'" Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin) and Bryton James (Devon Hamilton) along with "Days of our Lives'" Chandler Massey (Will Horton) and Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis).

The peer votes have been cast, and the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has announced the Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards! Five categories have been announced, including Lead Actress and Lead Actor, Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor, as well as Younger Actress and Younger Actor. Without further adieu, here are the pre-nominees:

It was on Friday, January 25, when Soap Opera Network first reported that Prospect Park's "All My Children" was looking to recast the role of Cassandra Foster, the adopted daughter of Angela Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), who the good doctor found abandoned in a dumpster during her run on ABC’s “The City” back in the mid-1990′s. The character returned as an 18 year-old seeking comfort from mommy dearest in 2008 as played by actress YaYa DaCosta. Since then, the production company has now officially issued a casting call for the role. According to the casting call, the role is for an African-American in her early-mid 20's, "gorgeous with an air of sophistication." The character spent the majority of her time in Paris, France, which has helped her become "worldly, independent and a force to be reckoned with." The role is contract.

On its Facebook page today, NBC's "Days of our Lives" uploaded a congratulatory card for Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) and William Horton (Chandler Massey), and Nick Fallon (Blake Berris), which revealed the sex of the baby that the town of Salem is currently fighting over.

As expected, NBC has renewed "Days of our Lives" through September 2014. The news comes just days after NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said, “I think ‘DAYS’ is going to stick around,” during NBC's portion of the Television Critics Association winter press tour. “I don’t know that I’m at liberty to say that officially yet, but it’s not going anywhere," Greenblatt added. The "DAYS" renewal was announced today by Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment.

Although it wasn't listed with the other "Hot" stuff in TV Guide Magazine's Annual "Hot List" issue (pages 16-35), "General Hospital" did earn a spot under Michael Logan's Daytime Highlights column (page 84) under the heading "Hot Again." NBC's "Days of our Lives" also made the cut under the heading "Hot Days, Hotter Nights" courtesy of daytime's hottest (and only) gay on screen couple, Will Horton (Chandler Massey) and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).

While Soap Opera Digest in its newest issue lists their last airdate being Wednesday, August 15, both Matthew Ashford (Jack Deveraux) and Sarah Brown (Madison James) will actually find their characters departing the world of the living much sooner.

A sneak peek at the Tuesday, April 10, 2012 episode of NBC's "Days of our Lives" featuring Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith as Will (Massey) nonchalantly admits to being gay to Sonny (Smith).

It was March of this year that word broke out that "Days of our Lives" was planning to have a major character come out of the closet. Almost immediately after the news broke out reports were flying that Will Horton, portrayed by Chandler Massey, would be the one to come out. Eight months since the news first leaked, the NBC Daytime soap has finally revealed that Will will in fact come to the realization that he is gay, but what does Massey think about portraying such a character and how has he managed to keep it such a secret for so long?
