    For me this is the strongest category this year. I so want Chandler Massey to win and I loved his scene the most – achingly beautiful work. My solace will be that he already has 3 Emmys! Paul Telfer is my 2nd choice; he has a very varied Emmy reel with lots of different colors, where Chandler’s is all from the one prison episode where he and Sonny consider getting a divorce. (btw, Freddie Smith ought to have been nominated too – he submitted the same episode).

    I dislike the character Valentin intensely but James Patrick Stuart is excellent in the role. I am also not a Devon fan but Bryton James may have an advantage in sentiment over Kristoff’s (and Neil’s) death. Wally Kurth has the great scene of visiting Will in prison but Chandler is great in that scene too – the rest of Wally’s reel underwhelms me personally. Mark Grossman is a remarkable newcomer but he belongs in the Best Actor category imo.

    I am wondering aloud if the disjointed reels from James Patrick Stuart and Paul Telfer – both show their range but they don’t tell just one story – might harm their chances? Is it better to just tell one story? Three chose various scenes from a single story, with Chandler choosing one episode only (Dec. 16th). We will know when the winner is announced!

    I have no idea who will win but I am hoping it will be either Chandler Massey or Paul Telfer.

    Ooh, tough, tough, tough. I stand by my earlier comment that Paul Telfer deserves it. But based on the clip, I’m surprised to say I think James Patrick Stuart has the strongest reel — someone I didn’t even consider originally.

      THIS is thee bang of the nite !!!! where it lands… who knows???? I just hope that because Devon is emoting over this character father death… that convincingly enough, it may take. certainly not for his body of work.

      nuADAM are you serious ? I haven’t read one iota on the actors presence. Nada. you certainly can’t help but believe he’s no where near in the same stratosphere as Michael Muhney, AND Justin Hartley. these are shameless plugs by Y&R

      Jason Patrick Stuart is my lover man. yeah, I go their. along with his direct demeanor, zeal, passion, he’s the go to man when the dullard men , of Sonny, Franco, Finn, Peter, Michael, Jason… endless list of blah so to see “Valentin” would be appreciated…I want you or Xander. to WIN

    For my money, no one can touch Paul Telfer. He has it all! It goes without saying that he has great looks and physique, but he also has the acting chops!

    When your portrayal of a villain can seamlessly morph into a multifaceted, strong but flawed, romantic lead with much rooting value, you’re doing something right. Thanks to the expert performances by Telfer, he has gone from evoking sneers to eliciting tears and cheers!

    Cheers, Paul Telfer! Cheers!

    Watching the clip package, they all did excellent work. But I’m rooting for James Patrick Stuart.

    I would say Paul Telfer. He runs the gamut from punk, criminal, pathetic, romantic, caring,sympathetic, loving, etc. It would take more than one clip to show his chops.I wish him luck though

    Bryton was so good all year round & his Emmy reel is outstanding. I was crying along with him! I hope he or Paul win. Paul’s growth as Xander was amazing! Wally Kurth is average on a routine basis & his reel is underwhelming at times.

    Who should win? James Patrick Stewart. Honourable mention to Bryton James, who did his best with Y&R’s awful writing, and Paul Telfer, who somehow made us root for Xander.
    Who will win? Chandler Massey.

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
