Good luck!

The last time “Days of Our Lives” won a Lead Emmy, Jimmy Carter was in office.

They won last year mama

Really wanting to see Sharon Case win lead actress. She deserved to win last year as well

Sharon Case was this her on air? I love her. I wanted her to win best lead actress from Y&R

Keep hoping. She wasn’t even nominated.

DAYS of OUR Lives : Eileen Davidson

I just love how she acknowledges, Eric Martsolf

in that, he was her rock… how they just took off… snowballed… in to their OWN , supercoupled Salem… and with ever fiber of their being… did

My ideal Emmy’ 2014

Lead Actress : Eileen Davidson
Best Supporting, Male : Eric Martsolf

Lead Actor : Billy Miller
Best Supporting, Female : Amelia Heinle

of course, Best Serial : Ta-Da! Days of OUR Lives !

I love Eric but can we say ACTING CLASSES

General Hospital not even getting a nomination,,
I do not even know which words of disgust and contempt to use to express my fellings..
The awards panel should be ashamed..

I, personally will boycott their stupid awards,,

No General Hospital.. no viewer ..

well said : “…I do not even know which words of disgust and contempt to use to express my fellings”

there are still 6 shows to contend… in the nomination block

CBS… evoked their right… by quashing … the process of elimination… with the most votes… and undermined… our intelligence

balk… implode… derision…. blech… I cant’ stand it

it’s downright embarrassing… wouldn’t you think.. as an actor for CBS to grandtand… red carpet… mundane… dead writing… poor production…

a product… as bad as Y&R/B&B to nab the most nominees….

I choose contempt.. and soapbox

What soap should not win?

Totally boycotting with you!!! ABSOLUTELY RICICULOUS about GH

…….. I am without a doubt boycotting ..

no need or want for me to watch without GH ..

GH ROBBED!! Not watching if it’s televised. It’s ridiculous the multiple actors from the same show nominated. Last year emmy broadcast was a joke too. This Emmys is so fixed and never based on talent.
Congrats B&B & Y&R oh right you don’t need it. They fix it for you every year

Go Y&R, B&B and DAYS!

can Kelly Missal please win!!! She was the best part of One Life to Live v2. it would be the best if won outstanding show too. GH was not robbed. It was a great show last year, but they picked an eleven episode most likely.

Billy Miller Memorial Scholarship Endowment Created at His Alma Mater to Help Others ‘Realize Their Dreams’

Two months since three-time Daytime Emmy-winning actor, Billy Miller passed away, the beloved All My Children (ex-Richie), General Hospital (ex-Jason/Drew) and The Young and the Restless (ex-Billy) star, will now have a permanent scholarship endowment in his honor at the University of Texas at Austin which was Miller’s alma mater.

Through the scholarship, it will be able to help radio/television and film undergraduate students with financial need. Billy’s family and friends have established this permanent scholarship in his memory, naming it the William Jon Miller II “Billy Miller” Memorial Scholarship. They hope the endowment will be a legacy to his life and love of acting.

Before becoming soap-famous, Billy graduated from the the university’s department of Radio-Television-Film (RTF) at the Moody College of Communication. On its official website, they shared the news of this special memorial scholarship and how Miller died at the age of 43 after surrendering his life to bipolar depression, which he struggled with his whole life.

Megan Hubbell, Billy’s sister, expressed, “We want something positive to be held in his name in perpetuity through the University he loved. He would be honored to know that even in death, he can help someone else realize their dreams.”

She added how she hoped her immensely talented brother will be remembered: “I hope BJ (as Billy was known by to his friends and family) is remembered for the kind-hearted, silly, funny, goofy, generous, beautiful soul that he was His megawatt smile, deep belly laugh and gorgeous mug were gifts on screen, but his true self was a bright light that will be carried with us forever.”

According to Miller’s family, Billy had his picks of schools and UT was his first choice. When he first came to the university, Billy started in the zoology program before switching to radio-television-film, where he felt he belonged. Miller was one of just 20 students at the time accepted into the department’s prestigious production-sequence program.

“BJ was extremely proud to be a Texas Longhorn and always remembered his time there fondly,” Hubbell said. “The time he spent at UT allowed him the space to explore who he wanted to be and what he wanted to accomplish.”

In honoring her brother’s work and strength to persevere in the often heartbreaking world of entertainment, Megan related: “I always admired the guts it took to go after a dream in Hollywood that so many people tried to discourage. He heard, ‘You’ll never make it’ more times than I care to count, but he used those comments as fuel and said, ‘Watch me.’”

Miller’s roles went far beyond those on daytime soap operas, as throughout his career he played major parts in primetime’s Suits, Ray Donovan and Castle to name but a few.

In his death, Billy’s family is encouraging people to take stock of their own mental health. “BJ would want anyone struggling with intrusive thoughts to seek professional help,” Hubbell said. “Do not suffer in silence or try to muscle through on your own. Mental health is vitally important and shouldn’t be spoken about in silos behind closed doors but rather in open forums with open arms. Shame has no place in the discussion to seek help.”
