As we get closer to daytime's biggest night, taking place on Sunday, May 1, the industry is abuzz today over which actors were submitted for a pre-nomination for the "The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards," presented by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). With at least two actors per show for each category (exception being Supporting Actress) several of daytime television's biggest and brightest stars are looking to vie for the coveted trophy that celebrates their hard work during calendar year 2015.
Jason Thompson, Kimberly McCullough and Brooklyn Rae Silzer said goodbye to Port Charles and their fans, last week on "General Hospital," when Patrick, Robin and Emma headed to California to start a new life together. But guess what? There was more to the memorable episode than actually made it on air, and ABC decided to share the extended cut with GH fans.

In the current issue of TV Guide, on newsstands now, the magazine examines the four remaining daytime soaps consisting of "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless" and how FOX's "Empire" may have influenced a push for more diversity in 2015 during love in the afternoon.
With a new year on the horizon it's inevitable that you'll be seeing a multitude of best and worst lists covering every facet of the entertainment world, and soaps are no exception. In his Best and Worst of 2015 report, TV Guide's Michael Logan has named CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" daytime's best soap, praises "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless" for having the best actors and actresses, and calls out some of daytime's current and former writers for insulting viewers with tawdry storylines lacking direction.
