Last Friday the 34th Daytime Emmy awards were presented in Los Angeles. I often reference soap operas so it's pretty obvious that I'm a huge fan. Having said that I was so excited for the awards, I know lame right! But there's just something about seeing the characters out of character; how does the actor look, what is the actor wearing, who is the actor sitting by - you know typical intriguing questions. Anyway my favorite soap is The Young & the Restless, so needless to say I was rooting heavily for the show and any cast member nominated for an award. When it came down to announcing the best soap opera of the year (Outstanding Drama Series), Rachael Ray shocked us by saying, "there's two, it's a tie!" What the?! A tie, are you kidding me? The committee couldn't reach a decision? Anyway, The Young & the Restless was a co-winner in this category. Whatever! They win outright in my book.
