Here it is folks — that annual exercise in utter foolishness and certain humiliation known as my Daytime Emmy predictions! But, hey, don't take my word for anything. For the first time ever, you fans can watch the reels that each nominated show and star submitted to the blue-ribbon panels by going to HLNtv.com. And don't miss the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, airing live on HLN from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, June 16 (8/7c). Suds-sational!

He did whaat? Fans of CBS's The Young and the Restless just found out that good guy Nick Newman — played by longtime fan fave Joshua Morrow — is capable of heartless deceit. Yes, it seems our Nick has known for years that he might not be the biological father of his beloved teen daughter Summer (Hunter King), and he's kept that knowledge from the kid, her mother, Phyllis (Michelle Stafford), and Jack (Peter Bergman), the other possible dad. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Morrow about this messy development. Has his character been trashed forever? Or is there a sly way out of this?

Emmy-winning producer of The Bold and the Beautiful and Sesame Street's The Children's Television Workshop, Ron Weaver, died Thursday at age 75 in Los Angeles.
Weaver began with the soap, , a sister show to The Young and the Restless, when it started in 1987 and only left the show weeks ago in April after 27 years. He won three daytime Emmys for overseeing thousands of episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, which follows the rich Californian Forresters family and is the most watched soap opera in the world.
The loss of Emmy winner Jeanne Cooper is a staggering blow to the daytime drama community and to the millions of fans of The Young and the Restless, where she spent nearly 40 years as supernova Katherine Chancellor. CBS plans to honor the actress, author and humanitarian, who died May 8 at age 84, with a 60-minute tribute airing on Y&R Tuesday, May 28.
