The Bold and the Beautiful’s head honcho Brad Bell, and the series long-time female stars, Susan Flannery (Stephanie) and Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) have been named Soap Opera’s Entertainers of the Year by Nelson Branco at TV Guide Canada. From the spellbinding and tantalizing stories of Brooke and Oliver’s party boink during the summer, to Thomas and Brooke’s current “taboo” situation, to Stephanie’s battle with stage four lung cancer, to the dove-tailing into the beautiful homeless plight of the people of Los Angeles,  and Stephanie and Brooke’s relationship coming full circle, the series has truly been at the head of the class for 2010. 

In a rare interview conducted jointly, Bell, Flannery and Lang banter back and forth on all the subjects that made this year both bold and beautiful.  Here is just one excerpt of the repartee of the trio below when discussing the burgeoning friendship/flirtation between young Thomas (Adam Gregory) and our Brooke!

Brad Bell: It feels different because everyone is aware of what they are doing [in this new equation]. So much of this story is about Brooke’s character. Taylor is scared to death that Brooke is going to cross the line again with her son; and Ridge has laid down the law that an affair cannot happen between his wife and son. But we know with the history of the show that the incredible always happens and we wonder if it’s going to happen here again. So much of this story is delving into Brooke’s character. Yes, we’re flirting with disaster.

Katherine Kelly Lang: Brooke is innocent here!

Susan Flannery: [Laughs]

Brad Bell: [Laughs] Again, Brooke has done nothing wrong!

Katherine Kelly Lang: I’m just letting you know that Brooke has done nothing wrong!

Brad Bell: Brooke is walking the tightrope again, which is always fun.

Susan Flannery: It’s the best way to tell a story; the audience is sitting there hoping it will happen but also hoping it won’t happen because then they’ll have to deal with the aftermath emotionally. I think that’s great storytelling: you don’t know if something is going to come to fruition as far as this relationship between the two of them. Personally, I think it’s very tantalizing and very real! The young prince wants to throw the father off the throne, in a sense. Whether it’s subconscious or not, I think it’s a great story.

So do you agree with B&B’s Bell, Flannery and Lang as choice for Entertainers of the Year? Let us know!

If B&B’s the best, what’s the worst? To finally win a Daytime Emmy, Brad Bell had to kill off Stephen “Storm” Logan Junior. Then he had to kill off Ann Douglas, portrayed by Betty White to get his next Daytime Emmys. Now he hinted at potentially killing off Stephanie for his next bid at the Daytime Emmys. Talk abt the same old crap. The Party Boink was a campy storyline. Steph’s double slap was great. But ultimately the Party Boink was stupid since they made Brooke think 20 something Oliver was Ridge. She should have been drunk instead of hormonal.… Read more »

I watch B&B once in awhile since my ATWT went off the air.The homeless storyline is getting good ,but I hardly think they should win this award.ATWT at its worst had some memorable storylines and at its best it was womderful.While I think Susan Flannery and Katherine Kelly Lang are good actresses.i think ATWT was better.just the story of luke and reid was wonderful to name one and Van Hansis and Eric Sheffer Stevens gave memorable performances! B&B has some good actors,Lang, Flannery, Conroy, and i like Don Diamont…he plays devious so well, but I do think they have too… Read more »

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
