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.
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.
Ever since Jill Abbott Atkinson decided to push forward in removing Chancellor Industries from the clutches of Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), who was left the company per Katherine's will, fans have clamored for the ultimate showdown between the pair and they're definitely in for a great ride as Jill's portrayer, Jess Walton, tells Soap Opera Network of the storyline that picked up steam on yesterday's episode.
“The Young and the Restless’” Christine (Lauralee Bell) boldly declared that Austin (Matthew Atkinson) will pay for the atrocities he’s committed as of late, but is that truly the case? Soap Opera Network caught up with the character’s portrayer to find out!
Forget about the sun, BBQ flames and bikini-clad bodies: The one thing that will be heating up the most this summer is CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.” From shocking secrets, babydaddy drama, rip-roaring returns and more, the CBS sudser is pulling out all of the stops in the weeks to come — and Soap Opera Network spoke with several cast members to get the exciting scoop!
On today's episode of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," Christine Blair (Lauralee Bell) admitted to friend Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Bregman) that she's looking forward to a bright future ahead for her and her husband, Paul Williams (Doug Davidson), which includes the possibility of her having a baby with Genoa City's top cop. "It used to be all about my career, getting ahead and proving myself, but once I married Paul, things changed. I want us to create something together. A testament to our love... I just hope it's not too late!"
As previously reported, Burgess Jenkins takes over the role of Billy Abbott on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" later this month. Last night on our social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter), we noted that the actor's first airdate is scheduled for Tuesday, June 24. Jenkins began filming scenes last week. In the picture above, fans get their first look at the actor on set.
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) is set to formally announce a list of individuals scheduled to attend as presenters for the 41st Annual Daytime Creative Arts Emmy® Awards later today, Soap Opera Network has learned. The list includes several of daytime's biggest and brightest stars, past and present, and a number of behind the scenes talents from "All My Children," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital," "One Life to Live" and "The Young and the Restless," among other forms of daytime programming.
Another day, another drama. At least, that seems to be the case for “The Young and the Restless’” Paul Williams (Doug Davidson), who is juggling so many Genoa City cases as Chief of Police, it’s tough to keep all of the details straight! His onscreen wife, Christine (Lauralee Bell), isn’t exactly thrilled that her new hubby is so busy, especially because he took the time to help Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) track down the truth about her son, Dylan (Steve Burton). And unfortunately for her, it looks like Paul’s busy schedule won’t be letting up any time soon! We spoke with the character’s portrayer, Davidson, to get the scoop on whether or not Paul’s work will destroy his relationship and where Nikki might fit into the puzzle. Read on to find out!
