I really wish The Bay would come back on. I never thought I’d ever say that Karouche Tran deserved an award….. but SHE DOES!
Seriously, The Bay was super addicting. Sometimes when I’m watching Kayla and Jack on Days, I wish they would bust into their other characters! Especially Matthew Ashford.
Congratulations on all the Noms for that great digital show!

Super thrilled to see Mike Manning’s name on the list for The Bay!!!! He really ought to have been nominated for portraying Charlie Dale on Days Of Our Lives as well – maybe next year for the powerful rape scenes and his death scenes… Lots of GH, B&B and Days stars nominated. 10 acting nominations for The Bay and 6 for Studio City. I loved Eric Nelsen on the All My Children reboot – wish one of the four broadcast soaps would hire him! I suspect that Tristan Rogers will repeat his win for Studio City again this year but… Read more »
