"The Bold and the Beautiful" ran roughshod over the competition at the Daytime Emmys Creative Arts Awards, held on Friday, April 24. It won a remarkable eight prizes, as many as the other three soaps combined. -Break- That included a shocking three-way tie in the new Special Guest Performer race. "B&B's" Fred Willard prevailed despite 16/1 odds from Gold Derby's predictors. Joining him in the winner's circle were our odds-on favorite, Donna Mills ("General Hospital"), and scene-stealing villain Ray Wise ("The Young and the Restless"), whom we'd ranked third with 13/2 odds. Left out of the celebration were Meredith Baxter ("Y&R"), Sally Kellerman ("Y&R") and Linda Elena Tovar ("Gh"). The other seven awards for "B&B" were Technical Team, Sound Mixing, Music Direction and Composition, Original Song, Costume Design, and a pair of prizes »
In an era when soap production budgets have been drastically cut, showrunners are facing even tougher choices when it comes time to choose which episodes they’ll submit to win the Daytime Emmy for drama series.
But this year’s quartet of contenders say the decision ultimately comes down to an age-old strategy — aim for the heart.
There was a time when daytime serial producers had a lot more money to spend and the flashiest (read: priciest) episodes would typically be slamdunk Emmy submissions. Nowadays, showrunners are singling out the episodes that deliver emotional wallops.
“When the Emmys come around it takes a while to reflect back on the year before,” says “General Hospital” exec producer Frank Valentini. “We do quite a few episodes a year so we have to be very self-actualizing.”
“Gh” went with the first episode from its annual Nurses Ball (which had numerous entanglements) and also »

Some actors hit the ground running, starting as they mean to go on by giving career-making debut performances in commercial and critical hit films. Some even win awards for their first either feature film roles, like Lupita Nyong’o, who scooped tonnes of awards for her part in 12 Years A Slave. And then there are the actors who started their career in the likes of 1986 Troma horror comedy Monster In The Closet.
Following guest appearances on TV soap operas The Young And The Restless and Touched By An Angel, that’s where Paul Walker began his career. But it’s not about where you start off, it’s where you end up – and a good couple of decades after his role as “Professor” Bennett in a movie that’s one long mildly homophobic gag, he had built up a truly impressive filmography.
Who knows where his career might have taken him in later life, »

The causes and consequences of teen bullying get a potent if not entirely persuasive airing in “A Girl Like Her,” a mix of found-footage thriller, mock-doc realism and public service announcement that rings true almost as often as it rings false. There is much to admire in writer-director Amy S. Weber’s well-acted, well-meaning cautionary tale about a high-school student who attempts suicide after being relentlessly targeted by a verbally abusive classmate. Yet the film’s agenda-driven approach, while sure to strike topical chords and generate exposure in American high schools far and wide, has the inevitable effect of compromising the drama, which seems less and less convincing the more blatantly it strives for authenticity.
Weber’s film has a tough opening scene: Jessica Burns (Lexi Ainsworth), a sophomore at South Brookdale High School, opens her parents’ medicine cabinet, downs a bottle of pills and falls unconscious. All this is shot from Jessica’s p. »

James Corden discovered an awesome perk of sharing a printer with “The Young and the Restless”: access to soap opera scripts! The new “Late Late Show” host had Tuesday’s guests Chris Pine and Patricia Arquette act out a scene from the melodramatic daytime show that his writer’s assistant discovered left on their joint office equipment. The two thespians, joined by host Corden, went into it blind, but kind of killed it anyway. Corden played Jack, Pine was Austin, Arquette did her best Phyllis. The plot is a bit hard to follow, so we’ll try to help. »
