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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

Perry Botkin Jr., Composer of The Young and the Restless’ ‘Nadia’s Theme’, Has Died At 87

When you think of the all-time best theme songs for your favorite television shows and one that stands the test of time, to many, there is none greater than “Nadia’s Theme” which became the theme song for The Young and the Restless.

The beautiful arrangement has become signature to the world of daytime drama and the opening credits of the CBS Daytime drama from its beginning in 1973.

On Saturday, news spread that “Nadia’s Theme” composer, Perry Botkin Jr, had passed away.  Botkin’s friend, TV writer John Scheinfeld, announced his death on Facebook, noting that Botkin died this past Monday at the age of 87,

Scheinfeld shared: “Perry was a magnificently talented composer, arranger, producer and story-teller, perhaps best known for composing the Grammy-winning Nadia’s Theme for the CBS soap The Young and the Restless.”

Perry was Oscar nominated and a Grammy-winner in his lifetime.  Among the most notable titles featuring Botkin’s work include: Happy Days, Mork and Mindy, Laverne and Shirley, Adam’s Rib and The Smothers Brothers Show. However, Botkin is most known for Nadia’s Theme which he composed along with Barry De Vorzon.

After the theme became the beloved opening of Y&R, it gained more fame when it was used in a montage for Romanian gymnast Nadia Comāneci’s routines in the 1976 Olympic games on ABC’s Wide World of Sports.  Decades later, Mary J. Blige used the sample of the song and made it relevant again for her hit, “No More Drama”

Another song by Botkin Jr. and DeVorzon, “Bless the Beasts & Children” was Oscar nominated, sung by The Carpenters, and also sung at various times on Y&R.

To honor Perry Botkin Jr., check out this compilation of the opening title sequence from Y&R over the years featuring “Nadia’s Theme” below

Share your thoughts on the passing of Perry Botkin Jr., in the comment section, and if you think Y&R has the greatest soap theme song of all-time, or do you think that honor goes to another theme?
