Scott Clifton- Georgie and Dillon are going to have sex/ Dillon tells Brook Lyn he cares for Georgie
Michael Graziadei-Daniel confronts Cricket about part she played in custody battle between his parents
David Lago- Raul’s goodbye episode
Tom Pelphrey- Jonathan confronts Reva about abandoning him and letting him grow up with an abusive stepfather
Jacob Young- JR finds out Miranda is not his daughter
Wow this year really brings back memories. This is when posted heavy on the old Goldderby forum. Everyone thought Pelphrey had in the bag. I think David Lago was predicted dead last from the majority of posters. His win was a huge surprise. If you watch David Lago’s Emmy speech you can tell he was shocked.
In hindsight Pelphrey should have won. He was a newbie and stole scenes from Kim Zimmer.

This is still one of my all-time favorite Younger Actor wins. I didn’t follow AMC or GH very closely during that time, so I can’t really speak to Clifton or Young’s work. Clifton had been nominated just the previous year for the same role (GH’s Dillon Quartermaine) and Young (nominated here for his work as AMC’s J.R. Chandler) was already an Emmy-winner three years prior in the same category for a different role (GH’s Lucky Spencer).
This was Lago’s fifth (and what would turn out to be, final) nomination for Y&R; I was definitely rooting for him to take it. He’s a gifted actor, and it was nice to see him finally rewarded for an exceptional body of work spanning several years. His win was quite remarkable, considering it came a full year after his last airdate on the show!
It was cool seeing not one but two newcomers in the mix of nominees (Y&R’s Graziadei and GL’s Pelphrey both debuted on their respective shows in 2004). It comes as no surprise that Pelphrey was pegged as the odds-on favorite to win. He was phenomenal right out of the gate, and I still remember vividly how electrifying his scenes were opposite Kim Zimmer (and Robert Newman). Of course, in hindsight, he was equally deserving of the trophy, but I’m not going to fuss much over his loss here because, as we know, he’d go on to win the following year.ReplyCopy URLJanuary 19, 2022 at 12:43 am #1204737626
I always thought one cool thing about Lago’s win was his off the speech. It was better than the typical “I want to thank the academy ” speechReplyCopy URL

Out of these nominees Tom Pelphrey ought to have won the Emmy imo. I liked Lago but Pelphrey was electrifying. He would go on to win two Emmys after this though.
I wonder which Younger Actors weren’t nominated from other shows that year? I just can’t remember who else was eligible that didn’t make it onto the nominations list.ReplyCopy URL

I remember being quite surprised but very happy for Lago to get the win. I’d probably been rooting for Scott Clifton, though it’s hard to remember whether I was watching any of the CBS soaps at the time. I’d gotten into the ABC lineup sporadically and was a big fan of Dillon, but I’d always like Lago as Raul. I never watched GL, and any time I saw Pelphrey I remember thinking he was a bit much.
I think this would have been around the time (maybe the year after?) Matthew Bomer was snubbed in younger actor, which I only knew about from the old Goldderby forums at The Envelope.ReplyCopy URL

What a great year! As everyone has said, Tom Pelphrey was absolutely amazing. I was also a big fan of Michael Graziadei during his run on Y&R and I think bringing back Daniel would provide a lot of storyline possibilities. I was very happy that David Lago won –his acting always seemed very relaxed and genuine, and I really loved his character, especially as the more down-to-earth, not rich foil to misunderstood spoiled brat Billy. Raúl is another character who I wouldn’t mind bringing back.
I was never a big fan of Jacob Young. In my view, he was so-so as Rick, miscast as Lucky (by far my least favorite Lucky), and JR was his best role.
Clifton was good on GH. On B&B the problem is that I can’t really stand his character, especially after years of waffling between Hope and Steffy.ReplyCopy URL

Tom is a great actor and certainly deserved his later Emmy. I absolutely despised Jonathan and hated how Sandy was thrown under the bus for him. Tom and Kim certainly chewed the scenery to the tenth power.ReplyCopy URLJanuary 19, 2022 at 12:52 pm #1204738707
Interesting facts about that year’s batch of nominees
This was David Lago’s first win out of five nominations. This would also be his last nomination in that category.
Out of the five nominees only Tom Pelphrey and Scott Clifton would win Emmys in later years. Tom Pelphrey two in younger actor, and Clifton would end up pulling off the triple crown so to speak winning in younger, supporting, and lead actor.
David Lago would end up being the third out of four Y&R actors to win in this category
The other three would be the late great Kristoff St John, David Tom, and Bryton McClureReplyCopy URL

HARD AGREE on Jacob Young on his performance as Lucky. For me it will always be:
Jonathan Jackson > Greg Vaughan >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Jacob YoungReplyCopy URL

<p style=”text-align: left;”>I know one of David Lago’s tapes was Raul dealing with the fact Brittany is with Bobby and Raul says a heartfelt goodbye to Brittany. He definitely deserved it. Tom Pelphrey deserved it in hind sight but I’m glad Lago won. Pelphrey won the next year and in 2009.</p>ReplyCopy URLNot now
