Competing this year for the coveted trophy is Freddie Smith as Sonny Kiriakis on "Days of our Lives," Bryan Craig as Morgan Corinthos and Tequan Richmond as TJ Ashford, respectively, on "General Hospital," and Max Ehrich as Fenmore Baldwin on "The Young and the Restless." Only Craig and Ehrich are repeat nominees this year.
Although I must admit that I may not always know the answers to their blind items right off the bat, I've long found myself fascinated with Soap Opera Digest's "Stuff We Know (And Shouldn't Tell You)" mini-section. Why you ask? Because it's no fun to be told something in print and not have anyone to talk about it with! What about you? Want to take a gander about who/what the blind items are all about this week?
Nominees for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in select categories were announced earlier today on CBS' "The Talk." All in ABC's "General Hospital" is leading the pack with 28 nominations. "The Young and the Restless" is right behind with 25 nominations followed by "The Bold and the Beautiful" with 19 noms and "Days of our Lives" with 16.
