The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards

While a host(s) for "The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" has yet to be named, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) recently put out a casting call for hosts of its red carpet/social media presentation, which will be executive produced by Paul Colichman and Stephen Jarchow of Here Media.

You heard it here first last month when Soap Opera Network reported that should the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) not secure a television deal in time for the Sunday, June 22 awards telecast of the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, the program will be streamed online.

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.

Most of the Daytime Emmy Award submission scenes feature extremely dramatic performances, but in the case of “The Young and the Restless’” Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin), his nomination-earning material was enough to halt production of the sudser! He explains that while filming the scenes in which Fenmore was confused about whether or not he killed Carmine [Marco Dapper], he became so overwhelmed, they had to pause taping. “There were like four of five scenes, we filmed them back to back, and we had to stop a few times, because I was so emotionally wrought that I was forgetting stuff!” he says. “Fenmore has a mental break, because he’s contemplating whether he should go to confess or whether or not he should protect his father, and so it was a really intense filming process.”

On Thursday, May 1, nominations for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced, and "Days of our Lives" star Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) received the happy news that he'd received his first ever nomination, although in the most unusual of ways. "I had forgotten that they were announcing it. I had an early call time and I'm in the shower at 6:00 AM," the actor recalls of the time news began rolling in. "I get out and my phone's just going nuts. There I am soaking wet standing there in the bathroom. I look at my Twitter, and sure enough, I found out through some fan," Martsolf states with a chuckle while nonchalantly apologizing for the visual. For reference, "The tweet read, 'Congratulations on your Emmy nomination, Eric Martsolf' and that's how I found out."

While many other Daytime Emmy nominees might celebrate being honored with a special dinner or something of the like, “The Young and the Restless’” Hunter King (Summer Newman) celebrated in a much different way: By going to math class!

With over 20 years of daytime experience, you’d think that Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman, “The Young and the Restless”) would have already been nominated at least once for a Daytime Emmy Award, but shockingly enough, this year’s nomination marks the first for the actress! And she says it’s all due to the incredibly emotional Delia’s death storyline she and her “Y&R” counterparts were given this year. “I don’t always put myself in the running, because I don’t always have [strong material to submit]... but this year, I just thought, you know, I’m just going to put myself in there, so it feels really good, because my instincts, I guess, were right!” she says, adding that the impact of the storyline was felt by everybody right from the beginning. “The first day of shooting the Delia stuff, after she died, this weird sort of camaraderie came over all of us. I don’t think we anticipated the magnitude of how heavy it would be, because sometimes you get a storyline that’s really heavy and nobody is into it and nobody can play it, and it’s like, ‘Ugh, this isn’t really working.’ But that day, it meant something to everybody. It almost felt like [the death] really happened. It was surreal, because it was the first time I’ve ever experienced this in all of my years of daytime, where the storyline actually felt pretty real.”

When Bradford Anderson woke up this morning he didn't immediately know that he had received his fifth Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Damian Spinelli on ABC's "General Hospital." How is that even possible, you ask? "I sleep with my phone off," the actor admits. "That's the fun thing about being on the west coast. You generally wake up to the news." He adds, "Just turning on my phone and seeing how many emails and texts I get is generally an indication of a 'yay' or a 'nay.'"

In case you were wondering how the networks and the shows stacked up when nominees for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced this morning, Soap Opera Network has you covered! As previously reported, CBS leads the pack with 61 nominations overall with "The Young and the Restless" in particular leading all shows with 26 nominations. But, how do the other networks and shows stack up?
