As it gears up to broadcast its first major awards telecast with the “42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” on Sunday, April 26, Pop has released the Daytime Emmy Nominee Reels for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Competing this year for the coveted trophy are Scott Clifton as Liam Spencer and Jacob Young as Rick Forrester, respectively, on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Chad Duell as Michael Corinthos on “General Hospital” and Kristoff St. John as Neil Winters on “The Young and the Restless.”
