The Young and the Restless Billy Miller (Billy Abbott) got a well-deserved Daytime Emmy Nomination for his portrayal of Billy Abbott this morning when the nominees for the 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced.    Miller had this to say on how he found out he made it to the final five in The Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Category:

“I was asleep, soundly.  After a long night of, well “celebrating life,” I took the liberty of attempting to sleep in only to wake up to my agent’s call at 5:00 am.  I answered half asleep and assuring them that a.) I was not in jail  b.) I didn’t do anything more stupid than ordinary, and c.) whatever you heard, it wasn’t me.  Then of course they delivered the good news.  Very cool, must admit I am pleasantly surprised and very honored.

By 9 a.m. I found it odd my mom didn’t call, so I reached out to her.  She told me she didn’t think I got a nom because my name wasn’t announced in the a.m. broadcast.  So, I then delivered the news, at which time she said “THAT’S GREAT!  Goodbye, I have to brag to people now.”  Then she hung up on me.”

If it’s an Emmy for widest pectorals, then Miller would win. I think Thad Luckinbill is actually better than Miller. He’s definitely not your stereotypical Y&R actor: histrionic, showy, OTT and very “look at me! i’m acting!” He’s a quieter actor, and he was actually 1 of the few good parts in their heart transplant reel, til the dialogue and his acting got melodramatic in a part. Miller is one of the most overrated actors on Y&R. He’s too hammy, and he acts like it’s all a joke. He was awful in Y&R’s “best” show reel. And didn’t Miller “joke”… Read more »

Love Billy Miller, who cares about his personal life. He’s a well deserving actor who makes all of his moments on YR shine!
But what is a big shock..NOT! Is that that the most over rated, one note, air sucking , scenery chewing, Jazz hand flailing, stuttering, eye rolling, hair flinging actress, once again gets to shut out other more deserving leading ladies in daytime.

Michelle Stufford. Who the flips thinks this gawd awful woman has talent?

Interesting Knox. There are a few people on Confidential and goldderby that don’t like her acting as well.

What’s wrong with Billy’s personal life? I thought I read somewhere he had a girlfriend. Also what kind of mom hangs up on her hottie of a son with just a “That’s Great”? Are you kidding me?

Billy Miller has grown on me. When he first appeared on Y&R, I thought he was a little much,and over acting. But truth be known, he has everything going to make him a star. You can’t beat that cunning smile and his brashness, and because he is so good at it, he wins you over. He does have a good part, also, which helps a lot.It will be interesting to see how his dalliance with Victoria plays out. So, good luck at the Emmys, Mr. Miller…

B&B’s Don Diamont Returns To Y&R

He played Brad Carlton on The Young and the Restless from 1985-2009 before being written-off the show and eventually wound up on another Bell family series, The Bold and the Beautiful, as Dollar Bill Spencer.

Now, as part of the Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) feud that is going on from Genoa City to Los Angeles – in a crossover storyline on the CBS sister soaps – Diamont is headed back to his old stomping ground for a visit.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Diamont on Y&R the week of February 8th,

Diamont told SOD on his Y&R return, “I had not ever considered that I would be part of a crossover, just because my character was so well-defined at Y&R.”

So have you been enjoying the B&B and Y&R crossover storyline thus far? Do  you think it will be fun to see Don mix it up with some old pals on-screen from Y&R? Comment below.  But first, check out this video released by CBS Daytime of some other crossovers moments over the year between Y&R and B&B.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.
