38th Annual Daytime Emmys Awards
The official website for the popular Blog Talk Radio soap podcast Buzzworthy Radio is reporting the 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Pre-Nominations are out. If the list below is any indication, pettiness and clique think still reigns supreme, especially on the set of The Young and the Restless. On what planet would Eric Braeden, Melody Thomas Scott and Michael Muhney not have made their respective categories pre-nom cuts? Bull to tha shiz. I mean, so yeah, Braeden is an arrogant, media hog, but he's also an amazing actor!
I am especially ticked about Muhney. I am sorry, but he and Billy Miller have been carrying The Young and the Restless on their backs for at least two seasons now. Peter Bergman (Jack) and Christian LeBlanc (Michael)are phenomenal actors, two of the best ever in daytime—and I am a huge fan of their bodies of work—but they weren't leads this past year and everyone who watches this soap opera knows it.
Come on, Michael Baldwin is the textbook definition of a supporting character on Y&R! He supports Victor's legal dramas. He supports Lauren's (Tracey Bregman) post-doppelganger anxieties. When did he lead a storyline last year? Bergman's Jack had bigger story last year, but it wasn't anything in comparison to Billy's or Adam's arcs. Oh well, at least Miller got a Supporting Actor pre-nom. Check out the picks after the jump!
"Maybe next, I’ll get to host the daytime Emmys," he said. "Hey, if they ask me, I might do it. I would love that."
Hey, if it brings in viewers, I can dig it!
