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…

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.

It was about to come true, until I tested positive for Covid yesterday afternoon. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to celebrate with everyone on Friday. I’ve cried lots of tears.  Thankfully, I’m asymptomatic. I’m super grateful no one in our home is sick. What a blessing.  To my Daytime community, have the best time. Wish I could be there but I’ll be watching from home and cheering on all of the nominees! Y&R bring home the gold! Love you all! And to everyone at CBS and Sony thank you for everything.
