TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco has published his Most Improved Actors of 2008, naming the actors who he believes have improved dramatically in the first half of 2008.
In addition to the Most Improved Actors of 2008 Branco also named his picks in his "Booster Club" categories including: Most Improved Soap, Most Improved Writers, Most Improved Love Story, Most Improved Network, Most Improved Magazine, Most Improved Direction, Most Improved Casting, Most Improved Producer, Most Improved Hair, Set Design, Lighting and Costume and Most Improved Opening.
So here is my question. If you were going to name your "Top 10 Most Improved Actors" so far in 2008 who would you name? I know several of Branco's picks would make my list.
Taking a cue from the rival networks, NBC has snagged Miss USA Crystle Stewart for a guest appearance for Days of Our Lives on June 20. Online rumors are reporting that for her soap debut, Stewart will mix it up with Chelsea (Rachel Melvin) and Morgan (Kristen Renton) as their Alpha Chi Theta sorority advisor at the now popular Salem Health Club.
While Chelsea and Morgan are working out, they notice Miss USA working out and mention the great job Ms. Stewart did on organizing a charity walkathon by Salem University for Breast Cancer awareness. The trio chat it up for a bit where Chels and Morgs shamelessly say they will be rooting for her when she enters Miss Universe that will be aired on.. You guessed it NBC!
So NBC's not only grabbing soap viewership but an audience to the Miss Universe pageant as well. Gotta love that ad and marketing dept of NBC's! The Miss Universe pageant will air on July 13 live on NBC and to get more info on Miss USA you can check her out here.
Day of Our Lives' Daniel and Chelsea are steaming up the hospital corridors with their chemistry. Here's a fan clip of the couple.
After months of anticipation we now have our five nominees for Younger Actress. I have to say, if it wasn't for the Supporting Actress category I would call this my most shocking category. Why isn't at least one of the three talented Guiding Light actress who made the prenominations a nominee? Why didn't a single ABC actress get a nomination?
Looking at the prenominations list below and comparing it to the nominees above is there anyone who you feel is missing from this list or who should be on it instead of someone else?
