The official Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards were announced earlier today, and fans of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” may have noticed something peculiar: Both online versions of the shows were much less represented than their network counterparts.

Despite the National Academy of Televisions Arts & Sciences declaring last October that the web sudsers were eligible to compete against “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Young and the Restless,” “Days of our Lives” and “General Hospital,” only four actors are on the list: Oustanding Younger Actress pre-nominees Kelley Missal (Danielle Manning, “OLTL”) and Denyse Tontz (Miranda Montgomery, “AMC”) and Outstanding Younger Actor pre-nominees Corbin Bleu (Jeffrey King, “OLTL”) and Eric Nelson (AJ Chandler, “AMC”).

“The Young and the Restless” viewers weren’t exactly thrilled when popular actor Billy Miller announced that he would be exiting the role of Billy Abbott, but the rough waters were mostly calmed when former portrayer David Tom (brother of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom [Katie Logan]) swooped in to take back the role. It’s been a fairly smooth transition for most viewers, but jumping into the middle of such an intense storyline — the death of Delia and having been outed for cheating on Victoria (Amelia Heinle) —was a bit of an adjustment for the actor!

Playboy may have found popularity by publishing risqué photos of women, but as the old excuse goes, some people actually read it “for the articles.” And those who picked up the March 2014 issue of the popular mag for reading purposes only were in for a lovely daytime related surprise: The publication stripped down popular primetime series made predominately for a male audience and declares they’re exactly like “The Bold and the Beautiful,” The Young and the Restless,” “General Hospital,” and “Days of our Lives” — with a manly twist.

With “The Young and the Restless” gearing up for the unveiling of Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) new fashion line, Chelsea Lawson for Jabot, and the subsequent battleground between the fashionista and Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson), as well as Lily (Christel Khalil) and Hilary (Mishael Morgan), it would only make sense for the series to use the storyline as a crossover opportunity with sister soap “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

With soap operas having been on the air since “Guiding Light’s” television debut in 1952, one would think the world would know by now that soap operas aren’t the cheesy programs they’re often made out to be. But for some reason, the four remaining soaps on air — “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Young and the Restless,” “Days of our Lives,” and “General Hospital” — continue to be stereotyped, as do the slew of former soaps that used to exist and the actors who have or currently are appearing on them.

Soap Opera Network recently attended an event at The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and in addition to discussing daytime’s recent resurgence (read that SON article here), experts like Robert Ulrich (casting director of “Glee,” “American Horror Story,” “The Mentalist” and more) and Anthony Geary (Luke Spencer, “GH”) discussed why soap operas have such strong associations with cheesiness and how these stereotypes affect the actors. Read on to see what they had to say!

Cupid may be fluttering around shooting love arrows left and right, but it seems he hasn’t been able to successfully connect “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Katie (Heather Tom) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) — at least, not yet! But does Katie even truly care for Ridge? Or is her attraction based out of revenge toward her sister, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), who swooped in and dated her former hubby, Bill (Don Diamont)? And what about the Logan sister’s relationship: Will they ever be as close as they once were, or have these recent matters of the heart permanently decimated their sibling bond? Read on to find out!
