B&B's Godfrey Will Be At The Emmys!

LinseyGodfreyGall.jpg

Linsey Godfrey (Caroline, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) totally missed the announcement of the Daytime Emmy nominations because she was in physical therapy! "I got a call from [B&B executive producer and headwriter] Brad Bell," she recalls. "And then I got text messages from another producer. I checked my messages really quickly. They said 'Congratulations.'" She laughs and adds, "I said, 'For what?'"

Due to B&B being a half-hour soap, the actors were allowed to submit two episodes to make the same hour as the other shows, so she submitted the scenes where Rick found out that Caroline kissed Ridge. "I wanted to do a different episode, but it aired four days after the cut off!" she laments.

In fact, Godfrey wasn't really involved in what was submitted to the committee, since it occurred just after her accident where she was struck by a car. "I was in the hospital," she reveals. "I felt so bad they had to call and ask. I was not really paying attention. I was just like, 'Oh, I don't care. Just submit what you want!'"

With the ceremony coming up in less than a month, she's already looking at potential gowns, but isn't quite sure how well she'll be able to get around the venue. "I'm trying to figure out if I'm going to be out of these 'moon boots,'" Godfrey says. "I think I'll be out of at least one of them, but I'm hoping I'll be out of both. I don't think I'll be able to wear heels. I'm hoping my gowns are long enough that they cover my feet. But I'll feel so short!"

Kristoff St. John Prepares For Emmy Night

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Kristoff St. John (Neil) missed seeing his name announced live on television for his nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor! "I thought I'd find out today on THE TALK," he says, "but then I heard it came out East Coast time."

The actor was also taking the nod with a grain of salt. "I've been in the business a long time," St. John muses, "and it is a wonderful feeling to be part of the elite pack, but the truth is all the actors and actresses, the people who work behind the scenes, we're all doing it for the same reason. We're all part of that elite group, but for this brief shining moment, there are five in a category and one will be singled out and be able to hold the gold trophy."

While St. John had lots of good material to choose from, he earned his nod with the episode where Shemar Moore (ex-Malcolm) returned for a brief visit. "The second one I considered as well," he admits, "but I thought the first one had a little bit more meat and substance to it. There was a consistent, steady back and forth between these two brothers, and I felt it had a better chance than the other episodes."

Although thrilled for his fellow co-workers who are also in the running for awards, St. John confesses he's surprised his on-screen son isn't with them. "I'm very disappointed that Bryton [James, Devon] didn't get a nomination after he did such really raw, moving emotional work last year."

A two-time Emmy winner, St. John says he's never prepared an acceptance speech in advance. "I'm going to cast my fate to the wind," he declares, "and if I should be so lucky and walk up on that stage... we'll see what happens. I'm in a touch category. I'm honored to be invited to the dance!"

Y&R's Tognoni Reacts To Emmy Nom!

GinaTognoniGal.jpg

Gina Tognoni (Phyllis, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) was back home in New Jersey when the 2015 Daytime Emmy Award nominations were announced, and was reminded by her mother that morning to tune in to THE TALK for the announcement.

"I got myself situated, I was trying to eat my lunch," she recalls. "I'm telling you, I'm psyched at all the nominations. I'm psyched that Hunter King (Summer) got nominated. Christian [Jules LeBlanc, Michael]... it's a very nice year. I like the nominations!"

However, immediately after learning she had snagged a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress, Tognoni was unable to get ahold of her mother! "She won't pick up her phone!" the actress laughs. "I'm thinking, where are you now that I need you? But you know what she's probably doing? She's probably talking to all of her friends. My mom is the biggest cheerleader of my life. Both my parents are. But she really loves all this. She loves the show."

To earn the nomination, Tognoni submitted the scene with Peter Bergman (Jack) as Phyllis confronted Jack about Kelly. "Basically it was a scene about 'Did you love another woman? Did you fall for another woman?'" she says. "I just loved it. It was a well-written scene."

Tognoni is grateful for her good fortune this year, but disappointed that co-stars Bergman and Cady McClain (Kelly) didn't receive nods. "I was surprised because she's so good," she admits. "There were a few surprises. I'm surprised that Peter didn't get nominated. He's so celebrated and he really is a big part of why what I submitted I was so proud of, because he is so incredible to work with. You can't do it alone."

Y&R's King Gets Nasty!

HunterKingGal.jpg

On THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Summer continues to be tormented by the mysterious murder of her hubby Austin, but her portrayer, Hunter King, takes on the role of tormentor in the big screen movie, A Girl Like Her, which opens nationwide in select theaters on Friday, March 27.

King portrays Avery, a teenager viciously bullying a former friend, Jessica (played by Lexi Ainsworth, GENERAL HOSPITAL's ex-Kristina.) "It was a really difficult role [because of the subject matter], but most of the film was improvised, which was a really different way to shoot a film," shares the Emmy winner. "The director [Amy S. Weber], who also wrote the film, gave us an outline and an idea of what she wanted in the scene. We'd brainstorm about what she wanted for us to achieve and portray, and then we'd go into the scene and improvise. It really added a different element to it, and was something that I've never done before. It made the film so real!"

So real, in fact, that King admits she had a hard time letting the role go when she left the studio. "It was very difficult and upsetting," she concedes. "But it's also so important. Everybody, of course, wants to solve bullying. What's so different about this film is that it doesn't just show [bullying] from the victim's point of view, or the bully's side or the bystander's side. As the director explained it, people who were [emotionally] hurt end up hurting other people because that's their defense mechanism. They don't want to feel the pain, so they wind up hurting other people to make themselves feel better. That's why we need to promote dialogue about it."
