“The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom has taken home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress for her work as Katie Logan the past two years in a row, and with yet another year of both superb storylines and emotional work, the actress just may nab the award again! “It doesn’t get old; it’s very fun, and I’m very grateful,” she says of the nomination, adding that she chose the episodes in which Katie, in the throes of her post-partum depression, leaves Bill and Will. “I was really proud of it, and it’s funny, because I was so pregnant doing it, and it was my catharsis. I would come in and be like, ‘I’m crazy today, so I’m just going to bawl all day long and get it out of my system and then go home!’”
It’s not easy being “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Liam Spencer, a man whose heart has flipped back and forth between Kim Matula’s Hope Logan and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood’s Steffy Forrester for the better part of two and a half years. And that’s what makes receiving an Emmy nomination in recognition of the tough work all the sweeter for portrayer Scott Clifton, who for the first time has been nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category as opposed to the Outstanding Younger Actor category he’s been in five times (and won once, in 2011).
Katherine Kelly Lang has been front and center as “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Brooke Logan since 1987, and in a moment that feels like it should have happened years ago, she has finally been nominated for her very first Daytime Entertainment Emmy Award! And when reporters met the beloved actress on set hours after executive producer and headwriter Bradley Bell woke her with the exciting news, Lang’s glow was very much still evident.
CBS’s “The Bold and the Beautiful” has knocked out the competition and come in at an impressive first place at the Monte Carlo Television Festival’s International TV Audience Awards in the “Telenovela/Soap Opera” category for the past seven — count ‘em, SEVEN — years in a row. But will the beloved sudser be able to grab ahold of the organization’s award once more?

Five categories have been announced, including Lead Actress and Lead Actor, Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor, as well as Younger Actress and Younger Actor.
