MICK HAZEN (Parker)

SHINING MOMENT: Other than your own, what do you think was your show's best storyline this year?
"Carly and Jack getting back together. That was nice to see, finally. Everyone had been kind of wondering whether or not that was gonna happen, it finally happened, and that was nice to watch."

SHOOTING STAR: What performance on your show do you think was a standout this year?
"Michael [Park, Jack] and Maura [West, Carly]. Both of them were incredible. Just watching some of the scenes they were doing -- and I was actually there for a couple of them. I was standing there, in the scene and observing while they were doing it. They were really incredible."

NOELLE BECK (Lily)

"The way Lily finally got a backbone and began asserting herself."
SHINING MOMENT: Other than your own, what do you think was your show's best storyline this year?

MUST-SEE TV: What performance or storyline from another show really impressed you this year?
"The only other one I watched was GENERAL HOSPITAL for James Franco (Franco) because he's a god."

SHOOTING STAR: What performance on your show do you think was a standout this year?
"The humble manner by which Scott Clifton (Liam) came to our show and me, not knowing who he was, showing him, around making sure he was comfortable to find out the very next week he had been nominated for an Emmy. With his off-the-cuff delivery and ease with the scenes, I should've known!"
SHINING MOMENT: Other than your own, what do you think was your show's best storyline this year?
"I enjoyed the storyline with Steffy, Hope and Brooke. The deception, lies and betrayal are what intrigued me."
MUST-SEE TV: What performance or storyline from another show really impressed you this year?
"I was so busy concentrating on B&B, I didn't have much time to watch any other soaps. But I do remember Victor leaving Y&R being quite a big deal."

JENNIFER GAREIS (Donna)

SHINING MOMENT: Other than your own, what do you think was your show's best storyline this year?
"Oh, Stephen and Pam -- that was interesting. Even though my character would hate that, I think it would be interesting if they got very serious or tied the knot. Pam as a stepmother? Oh my gosh, poor Donna! How would she deal with that?"
SHOOTING STAR: What performance on your show do you think was a standout this year?
"Gosh, everybody's good all the time. Susan [Flannery, Stephanie] is always amazing. John [McCook, Eric] is always amazing. It's so hard to choose."

TEXAS BATTLE (Marcus)

Battle.jpg SHOOTING STAR: What performance on your show do you think was a standout this year?
"Jack Wagner, when Nick found out that Bridget's unborn baby wasn't his, but Owen's."

ADRIENNE FRANTZ (Amber)

PERSONAL BEST: What was the highlight of the year for you, storylinewise?
"I have two: When Amber had to say goodbye to Daniel and Mrs. C and all of those people on Y&R. Those goodbye scenes really grabbed at my heart a bit, especially doing those scenes with Jeanne [Cooper, Katherine], because I just adore her so much. Also, the stuff I'm doing on B&B with stealing the designs was some of the more fun stuff I've gotten to do this year. Getting Oliver drunk and the naked cowboy and all that. I can definitely feel the spice coming back into my character. It feels good to feel that fire again.

MUST-SEE TV: What performance or storyline from another show really impressed you this year?
"A really good storyline from Y&R was when they brought Sheila's daughter, Daisy, on, and had the Daisy and Ryder story. I thought Yvonne [Zima] did a really good job, and I'm glad they're bringing her back for a bit."

RONN MOSS (Ridge)

KIM MATULA (Hope)

PERSONAL BEST: What was the highlight of the year for you, storylinewise?
"For me, it's been all the Brooke/Oliver stuff and getting to play the reeling from that. I've loved, loved getting to do that."

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS

PETER BERGMAN (Jack)

PERSONAL BEST: What was the

highlight of the year for you, storylinewise?
"Jack rediscovering what he and Phyllis have together. It all works so easily."
SHINING MOMENT: Other than your own, what do you think was your show's best storyline this year?
"I'm still fascinated with the Sharon/Adam relationship. It makes no sense that she would fall for this guy and yet she is turning her back on so much to be with him. Can his character be redeemed? What does she see that we don't? I want to know. I think it's great stuff."

SHOOTING STAR: What performance on your show do you think was a standout this year?
"I loved watching Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) and Josh Morrow (Nick) as their relationship was falling apart. It was so powerful to see them facing the fact that things couldn't be pieced together again. Great performances!"
MUST-SEE TV: What performance or storyline from another show really impressed you this year?
"I've been very impressed with Jonathan Jackson [Lucky, GENERAL HOSPITAL] taking on the Irish storyline. Brave, talented actor taking on a difficult job."

SHARON CASE (Sharon)

PERSONAL BEST: What was the highlight of the year for you, storylinewise?

SHOOTING STAR: What performance on your show do you think was a standout this year?

ELIZABETH HENDRICKSON (Chloe)

Hendrickson.jpg

PERSONAL BEST: What was the highlight of the year for you, storylinewise?
"A highlight for me as an actress is where I thought Chloe had new openings and self-discovery were my breakup scenes with Chance."
SHINING MOMENT: Other than your own, what do you think was your show's best storyline this year?
"It was a really good baby-switch storyline. How many times has everyone done a baby-switch? I knew Eileen [Davidson, Ashley] was a fantastic actress but, I watched those scenes with my jaw to the floor, on how well done they were. I think that's a great example of best redone storyline for the hundredth thousandth time!"
SHOOTING STAR: What performance on your show do you think was a standout this year?
"I'll stick with Eileen [Davidson, Ashley]. She really did an amazing job in the baby-switch story. Christel [Khalil, Lily] also did a fantastic job with the cancer storyline."

CHRISTEL KHALIL (Lily)

Khalil.jpg

PERSONAL BEST: What was the highlight of the year for you, storylinewise?
"I really like the stuff that's going on with Cane, and bringing up his past again."

SHINING MOMENT: Other than your own, what do you think was your show's best storyline this year?
"I like Nikki getting drunk. I didn't remember that she was an alcoholic. Plus, it's really nice to see Melody [Thomas Scott] in a front-burner story again. Her character is classic."
SHOOTING STAR: What performance on your show do you think was a standout this year?
"Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) does an amazing job. Always. I also think that Michael Graziadei (Daniel) doesn't get that much credit. He's so under appreciated. He is so amazing with what he does with his stuff. Every storyline that he has, he always does amazing."

CHRISTIAN JULES LEBLANC (Michael)

LeBlanc.jpg

SHINING MOMENT: Other than your own, what do you think was your show's best storyline this year?
"I really like the two daughters -- Victoria and Abby -- going up against Victor Newman. It's such a great threesome. One daughter doesn't really trust the other and you've got Eric Roberts [Vance] in the middle."
SHOOTING STAR: What performance on your show do you think was a standout this year?
"Stacy [Haiduk, ex-Emily/Patty]. Her degree of difficulty was 1000. I got to be in a scene with her [during that storyline] and seeing her go back and forth between the two characters was amazing. I'm a big fan of Stacy's."
MUST-SEE TV: What performance or storyline from another show really impressed you this year?
"I'm really getting into VENICE [the web series helmed by Crystal Chappell (Carly, DAYS OF OUR LIVES).] I met some of the people there and I really love the pioneering aspect of this. It's really fascinating."

KATE LINDER (Esther)

Linder.jpg

PERSONAL BEST: What was the highlight of the year for you, storylinewise?
"Elizabeth [Hendrickson, Chloe] and I had some nice scenes after Chance 'died.' I don't know if we'll ever find out that he's alive. But I'm glad Phillip and Nina know."
SHINING MOMENT: Other than your own, what do you think was your show's best storyline this year?
"The Patty/Emily storyline. Stacy [Haiduk] did an incredible job. She played both roles totally differently and was extremely believable. She's wonderful."
MUST-SEE TV: What performance or storyline from another show really impressed you this year?
"Susan Flannery [Stephanie, B&B] is always phenomenal. Once again, she didn't disappoint with the cancer storyline."

Muhney.jpg

MICHAEL MUHNEY (Adam)

SHINING MOMENT: Other than your own, what do you think was your show's best storyline this year?
"I like the interesting pairing with Billy and Victoria this year. That's my crush -- I'm a little Billy fan!"
MUST-SEE TV: What performance or storyline from another show really impressed you this year?
"Kim Matula [Hope, B&B]. I like her style and I like her composure at such a young age and being so new to the industry."

JOSHUA MORROW (Nick)

Morrow.jpg

PERSONAL BEST: What was the highlight of the year for you, storylinewise?
"Michelle [Stafford] and I had some good stuff when Nick and Phyllis broke up. I just love working with her! That hurt me! Any scene with Michelle can instantly be archived. I think she's brilliant. But there wasn't a lot going on for Nick, but I did get really good at tennis this year. I used my free time very well!"
SHOOTING STAR: What performance on your show do you think was a standout this year?
"I thought Eileen Davidson was amazing where Ashley had to give up Faith. I mean, good grief, Eileen was heartbreaking. If she doesn't get an Emmy with the work she did on that stuff, there's no creative justice in this world. And Sharon [Case] (Sharon) is always amazing."
MUST-SEE TV: What performance or storyline from another show really impressed you this year?
"How about Cameron Mathison [Ryan, ALL MY CHILDREN], because I think he's a big, giant dork, and I love him. You can put that as a quote!"

MARCY RYLAN (Abby)

Rylan.jpg

PERSONAL BEST: What was the highlight of the year for you, storylinewise?
"The anniversary of Colleen's death, I really loved that episode [yelling at Victor and Jack]. I loved it because when you're a recast, you get to know the character... all those history things, the longer you're here it all clicks and makes sense. But that scene was a great one for me to really solidifying Abby's history and her emotional history with her uncle and her father."
SHOOTING STAR: What performance on your show do you think was a standout this year?
"It's hard because the cast is phenomenal on Y&R. Everyone brings their A-game. Honestly, I'd have to say Amelia [Heinle] and Billy [Miller] with Victoria and Billy's wedding episode. They just stood out to me."
