Great show! 15 of the 30 nominees interviewed! Loved it!

O.K., I disagree about Wally Kurth’s category placement and here is why: the leads on Days, the male actors who carried story, were on the show frequently, and belonged in the lead actor category, were Ben (Robert Scott Wilson), Brady (Eric Martsolf), Chad (Billy Flynn), Jake (Brandon Barash), Will (Chandler Massey – who usually submits in supporting), and Sonny (Freddie Smith – who usually submits in supporting) – the last two were on less frequently but had their own stories they carried in 2020. Justin is a supporting character – on infrequently, and does not carry story on a regular basis. With that said I am rooting for him to win and his reel is phenomenal! I hope he wins!

I am so disappointed by the Supporting actor nominees ): Where are the Days actors??? All of my choices for that category would have been from Days – I know that Chandler and Freddie submitted in supporting so both of them, and Mike Manning (Charlie), Paul Telfer (Xander), and Lucas Adams (Tripp) – all of them would have been great nominees and there wasn’t even one Days actor nominated! Really disappointing!

Lastly, I really hope a GH actress wins this year. I know many are saying JMW will win again this year but I really hope that doesn’t happen. I will be really disappointed if it does. Genie Francis or Nancy Lee Grahn winning would make me ecstatically happy!!!!

I forgot to add Stephen Nichols as Steve as a Lead Actor from Days in 2020. Brain freeze!

I will really really really be disappointed if JMW wins Best Actress – so many are saying she is going to win and I really really really want a GH actress to win this year! Genie or Nancy in particular!

” this much, I”M CERTAIN ” this should have been a two horse race. “Thank you, Richard for sharing your disappointment @DAYS absence from ALL the major acting category ?!?! assessing from this past year FAN input… not a peep was truly said about B&B, if any should have been said, it would have been more about Matthew Atkinson. WOW , LOL i loved the spiral and just fan outcry about the devastation the current state of Y& R. is that karma, and/or we all have stink on shit. YES!!! that being said… i hope rebound is in order

so that leaves @DAYS – AND – @GH. this past year, like no other, I did not focus on ALL 4 shows. what I know… this would not have been a near complete shut out ? i certainly will share, @GH did not deserve all the accolade in the top category… other than to say !!!!!! YES , dance on , Laura Wright DID NOT get a nod. she’s clearly not the driving force , as she’s lauded to be. Yawn on Maurice Benard and Steve Burton, along with Thorsten Kaye, he definately has shared that he phones his act in… and that this is just a job, for his family. Finola Hughes and Nancy Lee Grahn ???? Alexis hit the bottle , was for that specific time, highly entertaining… otherwise with all her dead male leads.. she just sunk to abysmal . until something is done about Anna stranglehold with the dead on arrival Peter and Finn… will she every be recognized. thank god for Robert Scorpio to keep her head above water.

I loved your mention of all the @DAYS actors… the whole cast ???? save for Wally Kurth and Victoria Konefal ???? WOW i hope Cady McClain and Wally and Victoria get GOLD.

Y&R is the only show I watch. Very disappointing that there is no Lead Actor nominee.

Congratulations to all the nominees. And special shoutout to Bryton James for expressing his (and my)shock that Bryni Sarpy wasn’t nominated for the same story he submitted. She was stellar with a sensitive, finely-nuanced portrayal of a woman dealing with guilt and regret for an action which shocked her and which upended her life. Yes, there were tears and sadness – but that story was one which begged for those tears and that sadness – and for the heartbreaking vulnerability she portrayed so well.

Regardless, Ms Sarpy has proven herself to be a stellar scene partner – working incredibly well with Mr. James who earned his nomination this year with scenes with her. And who won Best Supporting Actor last year with a reel which was, in his own words, 90% with Ms Sarpy.

Hi Jane : “thank you” for the nice write up… of Ms. Britney Sarpy. oh didn’t she weather the storm @GH. She languished… and worked what little material was afforded her. Her affair w/Dante and sure, why not, Kristina. I believe a majority of fans were ok with that. i thought it could have gone somewhere. i thought Ms. Sarpy was going to be backburnered , when Mishael Morgan returned. that’s not the case. she’s even dating “Devon”. so good for this young couple. make it work. i’d love to see her nominated

Give Darin Brooks an award for putting up with Flo, oye!

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. I feel so fortunate to have played such a terrific role.”

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.
