There may be only four broadcast soaps left but the folks at “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of Our Lives,” “General Hospital” and “The Young and the Restless” served up plenty of sudsy, sensational moments in 2013 — many of which will earn gold statues June 22 at the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards.
“Bold’s” most combustible moment last year was Katie ripping into her husband, Bill, and her sister, Brooke, over the affair they had while she battled post-partum depression.
“We submitted that for Outstanding Drama Series,” says Bradley Bell, nominated as “Bold’s” executive producer and head writer. “The storyline’s a timeless classic, and there were so many great performances.”
“Bill and Katie had been married for four years, which in daytime is an eternity,” notes Heather Tom, a five-time Emmy winner and a nominee this year for lead actress. “People are really invested in them so when it unraveled it was heartbreaking. »

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced on June 5 that after years of moving between broadcast and cable networks, the Daytime Emmys will stream online for the first time in the awards' history. -Break- Eileen Davidson vs. Heather Tom for Best Actress at Daytime Emmys? "We are so thrilled to be sharing the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with a global audience in such an innovative and contemporary fashion," said Malachy Wienges, Chairman of NATAS, which will also provide a multimedia experience on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, and YouTube via social media ambassadors. This is the latest change in the dramatic history of the Daytime Emmys, which aired during daytime hours until 1991, when they moved to primetime for the 18th annual ceremony. Declining ratings in recent years led the awards to the CW network in 2009, which was followed by two telecasts on CBS (2010-2011) that heavily pro...' »

The 2014 Daytime Emmy acting reels have been made available for public viewing online, and it looks like Best Actress might be a face-off between five-time Emmy-winner Heather Tom ("The Bold and the Beautiful") and Emmy-less veteran Eileen Davidson ("Days of Our Lives").

The Daytime Emmy reels for Best Actress are available for viewing online. I've watched all four. Eileen Davidson ("Days of Our Lives") submitted the only villainous performance in the category. Will she crush her more virtuous rivals? -Break- Watch her rivals' reels: Katherine Kelly Lang, Heather Tom, and Arianne Zucker Length of Reel: 7:31 Synopsis: Kristen Dimera (Davidson) has been caught in a lie and as a result lost Brady, the man she schemed to get. But when Marlena (Deidre Hall) comes to gloat, Kristen fights back by revealing that she seduced Marlena's husband. Analysis: Davidson's reel runs a gamut of emotions. She begins on the floor, crying in defeat, and shifts naturally to rage, then pettiness, and at last a surprising moment of sincerity when she reveals that loving Brady had turned her away from feelings of revenge. Because Davidson plays a villain -- and is one of the few no. »
The Daytime Emmy reels for Best Actress are available for viewing online. I've watched all four. Can anyone stop defending champ Heather Tom ("The Bold and the Beautiful") from tying Erika Slezak's Emmy record for most wins by an actress? -Break- Watch her rivals' reels: Eileen Davidson, Katherine Kelly Lang, and Arianne Zucker Length of Reel: 11:00 Synopsis: Katie (Tom) confronts her husband, Bill (Don Diamont), and her sister Brooke (fellow Best Actress nominee Katherine Kelly Lang) about sleeping together while she was suffering from postpartum depression. She throws both of them out of her house. Analysis: Hell hath no fury like Heather Tom. Her most powerful material is near the beginning of the reel, when she vows not to be a doormat and not to forgive so easily anymore. Brad attempts to place part of the blame on Katie -- she pushed Bill and Brooke together during her depression (Tom wo. »
The Daytime Emmy reels for Best Actress are available for viewing online. I've watched all four. After more than two decades without accolades, Katherine Kelly Lang ("The Bold and the Beautiful") is nominated for the second year in a row. Will this be her time to shine? -Break- Watch her rivals' reels: Eileen Davidson, Heather Tom, and Arianne Zucker Length of Reel: 13:32 Synopsis: After a near-death experience, Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) puts his life in perspective and realizes that he must leave Brooke (Lang) to reunite with her sister. Brooke then accuses Bill of using her. Analysis: Between her and her co-star Heather Tom's submissions, Lang has the benefit of two halves of a story arc.

The Daytime Emmy reels for Best Actress are available for viewing online. I've watched all four. Arianne Zucker ("Days of Our Lives") is nominated for her first lead Emmy after two supporting nominations. Will she be vindicated at the awards as she is in her reel? -Break- Watch her rivals' reels: Eileen Davidson, Katherine Kelly Lang, and Heather Tom Length of Reel: 8:06 Synopsis: Eric (Greg Vaughan) comes to Nicole Walker (Zucker) to beg for forgiveness. He was drugged and raped and wrongly accused Nicole of the crime. But his apology is too little, too late for Nicole, who vows never to forgive him. Analysis: Zucker is mostly passive in the first half of the reel, which focuses primarily on Vaughan in his attempt to make amends. But in the second half she delivers strong emotional impact, shifting from heartbreak to anger as she rebuffs his apology. She moves us without hysterics, »

After 21 years as Sami Brady on "Days of Our Lives," can Alison Sweeney finally earn a Daytime Emmy nomination? -Break- Click to see the latest Daytime Emmys odds: Best Drama Series It's a familiar dilemma to anyone who knows the Emmys – Daytime or Primetime. Some actors seem to earn nominations just by rolling out of bed in the morning, while others like Sweeney battle for years just to be noticed once. She joined "Days" as Sami in 1993 when she was a teenager and has played the role ever since, taking her from young villainess to wife and mother, but she has never been nominated by her peers. She did receive a special award at the 2002 ceremony as "America's Favorite Villain," but that wasn't actually an Emmy; it was voted on by fans and not fellow industry professionals. Will Heather Tom ('Bold and the Beautiful') tie Erika Slezak's Daytime Emmys record? »
Heather Tom has been a staple of daytime television for more than two decades, beginning with her star-making role on "The Young and the Restless" in the 1990s and continuing into "One Life to Live" and currently "The Bold and the Beautiful."

For her work she won six Daytime Emmys for Best Drama Actress, more than any other woman. She is tied with Justin Deas as the second most awarded daytime actor overall; they both trail Anthony Geary, who won his seventh Emmy for "Genera. »
It's March Madness on CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful! Katie (Heather Tom) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) hit the sack. Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) hits the bottle. Dead Darla (Schae Harrison) returns as a ghost. And who knows what's going on with that crazy Aly (Ashlyn Pearce)? TV Guide Magazine went to exec producer-head writer Bradley Bell for all the dish.
