Billy Miller and Michael Muhney are on the list, and Y&R is nominated for Hunkiest Soap.

The list is incomplete without the gorgeous, hunky James Scott. Leaving him out diminishes the contest.

Leaving James Scott out will make it a hallow win for the actor chosen.

But this award is a joke. LOL.

James Scott has two nominations and is not left out. He also has more wins (13) than anyone else in the site’s history.

He’s not up for Best Hunk because in 2010 he only took off his shirt TWICE.

Kinda ironic that even though no soap hunk has been more recognized in soaphunks.net’s history than James Scott, it’s his fans who most often complain that I’m not given him enough love.

James Scott fans isn’t complaining. soaphunks !!!!!! It doesn’t matter how many times you he wins, I think he deserves that cos he’s HOT , SEXY, HUNKY not to mention most amazing actor.

Thanks for your contests!

Soap actors being objectified is great! That’s what a soap gig requires. LOL. Seriously, Ronn Moss should win this. He’s a zillion years old and he’s still B&B’s well preserved, leading, romantic dude. Ridge’s own ex daughter/not really half sister Bridget even desired him. His own biological daughter Steffy complimented his body.

Why James Scott isn’t chosen? Anyway James Scott gets my vote regardless if he’s on your list or not too. Best Hunk

How often a soap star takes his shirt off is dictated by the script not by the fans.

Don Diamont should be in this.He really gets better with age.And it’s not just that sexy body, but that handsome face too.

Having said that if they’re giving awards for best face and smile my vote is for Van Hansis of the defunct ATWT fame .His body is great too, not overly muscular but just right Don for over forty and Van for anything else!

Billy Fan

Billy Miller gets my vote – he is the whole package – SEXY, FUN, GREAT ROLE… Much enjoyable to watch. He plays bad boy, but had a great sense of fun while he does it… that is what makes a role SEXY in my eyes. Not one out for revenge and that is it…

Too bad James isn’t on the hunkiest list. I do get that he may run away with it though and we must share awards. LOL

Soapy, JS’s fans love him and root him on whenever we can. This JS fan isn’t complaining. I will wait for Adonis 2011 to make my votes. Thanks for your contests!

Truthfully without James Scott in the best hunk category. I was a wee bit mad. He is the hunk for me!!!!

I viewed the evidence, and still missed James in the category but, I found it was still hard to choose in this category. Dang you Soapy!!!! (Cory blows you a raspberry – hee, hee) And I did vote in the others!!!!

Here’s to hoping that James will be in the top category next year!!!!

Happy holidays Soapy!!!!

And thanks to M.F. for letting us vent to Soapy through his site!!!

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
