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.

Are the full reels posted somewhere?

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

I think it will go to Stuart or Telfer.

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

rest Chandler Massey : this is far and away : the biggest bang of the nite

Greg Vaughn WON deserved , two years ago; he’s that Good

Paul Telfer, Xander
Wally Kurth, Justin
Chandler Massey, Will

nuAdam; Devon With ; without quality, no ring

Telfer, along, with; Lindsey Godfrey, AND Stacy Haiduk, enormous response; to qualifying; out bid Eileen Davidson… Hey, i’m on

I’ve belled Xander … he would be thee NEWBIE elect to move on; in this late genre; he spins; for his contribution along with Lindsey and Stacy.. with the Kiriakis’ strong golden

Wally Kurth , is marriage material, for me to point out LUSTS, is beholden , he must WIN for both shows’ SALUTE! God he’s “good” it’s dark … you got it

i’m Grandma Marlena to Will’ Chandler Massey: he’s grown up left my nest; he’s hot LOVE the beard

you saved a genre, SHOW, quality stuff, boffo thank You Live on my friend

I’ve belled and whistled Paul Telfer… for so long now… i’m shamelessly thrilled that his returns are being Lauded by the fan base. Hey… just as much as I’ve stood behind Jeffrey Vincent Parise… his nomination , for Y&R, guest stint…. emmied for 2 shows… yeah he’s got scrotum

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.

Trevor St. John Announces His Departure from The Young and the Restless

In a shocker, Trevor St. John revealed on Tuesday that he is leaving the cast of The Young and the Restless and his role as Tucker McCall.

The popular actor took to his account on X and in a series of posts said his “thank you’s” and bid farewell to the top-rated soap opera.

St. John shared, “As you well know, Tuckers come and Tuckers go, and so the cycle continues… this Tucker is in his go phase… I thank each and every member of the wonderful cast, the crew, the directors, the producers and production staff, and CBS/Sony for the great experience from day one to the last.

Trevor continued: “Most importantly, I want to offer my heartfelt gratitude to you the (Y&R) fans. THANK YOU!” Tucker might be gone for the time being, but I’m not going anywhere. I’ve got projects in the works, and if you haven’t seen my film, A Good Enough Day, it’s now available to stream for free on Tubi!”

The news of his exit comes just two years shy of his time on The Young and the Restless.  St. John made his Genoa City debut in September of 2022 as the new Tucker, last played by Days of our Lives, Stephen Nichols (Steve). The role was first played by actor William Russ.

No word from St. John or Y&R as to when his last episode will air on the top-rated soap opera.  In story, Tucker is losing his company to a takeover by Audra and Victor, while Ashley is finally getting help she needs after her personality split.

So, what do you think about Trevor’s departure from Y&R? Comment below.
