As it gears up to broadcast its first major awards telecast with the "42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" on <strong>Sunday, April 26</strong>, Pop has released the Daytime Emmy Nominee Reels for Outstanding Special Guest Performer in a Drama Series. Competing this year for the newest trophy in the Daytime Emmy assembly line are <strong>Meredith Baxter</strong> as Maureen, <strong>Sally Kellerman</strong> as Constance Bingham, and <strong>Ray Wise</strong> as Ian Ward, respectively, on "The Young and the Restless," <strong>Donna Mills</strong> as Madeline Reeves and <strong>Linda Elena Tovar</strong> as Rosalie Martinez, respectively, on "General Hospital," and <strong>Fred Willard</strong> as John Forrester on "The Bold and the Beautiful."
Since joining the cast of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" in early 2014, <strong>Cady McClain</strong> [ex-Dixie Martin, "All My Children"; ex-Rosanna Cabot, "As The World Turns"] has seen her character, Kelly Andrews, finally deal with several family matters that have helped shape her into who she is today. "Her child died, her marriage broke up, her mom was a drunk and was very unstable. She thought her father was good, and it turns out her father was abusive. So Kelly had a really rough life experience. I hope that the fans kind of remember that. She's really hanging on by her fingernails and trying to make this life, and Jack is a real key... falling in love," McClain says in an exclusive interview with <em>Soap Opera Network</em>, following the Tuesday, February 17 episode of "Y&R," which found Jack Abbott's (<strong>Peter Bergman</strong>) actions contradict his words when he once again became intimate with Kelly as they did the deed in the storage room of The Underground.
On Sunday, November 23, OWN's "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" will feature former "Family Ties" star Meredith Baxter, who is currently appearing as Maureen on CBS' "The Young and the Restless." The episode picks up from Baxter's 2011 appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," where Baxter opened up about coming out as a lesbian. In "Where Are They Now?" the actress talks candidly about life with her wife of two years and the influence of her 1980's sitcom.
While the date for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards wasn't necessarily a secret, it was still somewhat surprising when it was revealed that next year's Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards would be taking place on <strong>Friday, April 24</strong> and the big show would be taking place on<strong> Sunday, April 26</strong> - the earliest either ceremony will have taken place since at least 2006.<strong> </strong>In an interview with <strong>David Michaels</strong>, Senior Executive Director and Co-Executive Producer for the Daytime Emmy Awards & Events, who notes to <em>Soap Opera Network</em> that we can likely thank "The Young and the Restless'"<strong> Christian Le Blanc</strong> (Michael Baldwin) for revealing the dates online, the executive addresses the red carpet debacle that rocked the industry earlier this year, while also providing insight into what we can look forward to seeing from both the creative side and the broadcast side for next year's telecast, and a greater understanding of how four new categories will change the future of the awards ceremony.
