The pre-nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Daytime Drama awards have been announced and with only four soap operas on the canvas all the nominees come from “The Young and the Restless”, “The Bold and the Beautiful”, “General Hospital” and “Days of Our Lives.” Michael Muhney’s name was not included in the pre-nominations and that has fans angry.
According to a report on March 4 by Celebrity Dirty Laundry the final 41st Daytime Emmy nominees will not officially be revealed until May 1. Ironically, Billy Miller, who recently left “The Young and the Restless”, was nominated, but Michael Muhney, who was abruptly terminated under suspicious circumstances, was not nominated for his role as Adam Newman on “The Young and the Restless.
Michael Muhney fans are angry that the actor’s name was not put into consideration in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama category. The reason that Muhney was not given a 41st Annual Daytime Emmy pre-nomination could be because Sony owns the rights to any scenes that could have been submitted on a reel for consideration.
Pre-nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama category include 2013 winner Doug Davidson (Paul Williams, Y&R), Peter Bergman (Jack Y&R), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Y&R), Billy Miller (former Billy Abbott,Y&R), John McCook (Eric, B&B), Maurice Bernard (Sonny, GH), Roger Howarth (Franco, GH), Jason Thompson (Patrick, GH), James Scott (EJ, DOOL) and Shaw Christian (Daniel, DOOL).
