It was really wonderful seeing last season’s finalists invited back to sing for a chance to be a part of this year’s competition (hats off to the show producers for coming up with that nice little twist), especially Louis Knight who I was rooting for last year! I’ll echo the sentiment expressed above that unfortunately not everyone capitalized on this golden opportunity to earn a second go-around on the Idol stage. The two though who most stood out: Louis, who really impressed with his original song, “maybe that”; and Makayla Phillips, who knocked it out of the park with her heartfelt rendition of Demi Lovato’s “Anyone”. I could definitely see it going to Makayla but hopefully Louis squeaks through with just enough votes to secure the Comeback spot.April 12, 2021 at 11:18 pm #1204197342
Yes, as bittersweet as it is losing Alyvia (her impending exit was discussed at the top of the SOD podcast episode featuring Kate Linder as Guest; she is set to star in an upcoming TV series, Chucky, and actress Reylynn Caster is taking over the role of Faith), it’s so wonderful that she’s exploring new opportunities. Hopefully, Alyvia will return to reprise the role at some point in the future, but regardless, her light will shine bright no matter which path she embarks on.April 11, 2021 at 5:42 pm #1204194743

The Bold and the Beautiful
Outstanding Lead Actor: Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer)
Outstanding Lead Actor: Don Diamont (Bill Spencer)
Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series
Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series
After regaining consciousness at the Spencer mansion, Liam is overcome by the grim reality of the events that transpired earlier that night, in which he accidentally hit Vinny with his car on a dark stretch of the road on his and Bill’s way home. Believing he is responsible for Vinny’s death, a panic-stricken Liam wants to turn himself in to the police, but Bill is able to dissuade him from doing so. Convinced that the police would prosecute his son on the basis of murder charges given Liam’s complicated history with Vinny, Bill vows to protect Liam at all costs.
Powerful performances from both Clifton and Diamont, who play so well off each other here. Wonderful direction by Jennifer Howard in the build-up of tension and suspense. Huge props to Brad Bell and the writing team for crafting this perfectly-timed, intriguing murder mystery. Particularly loved some of the humorous notes Shannon B. Bradley (Wed. ep.) mingles into the script, which works as a nice contrast with all the intensity of the dramatic parts in the episode.April 3, 2021 at 11:57 pm #1204174384
This is such wonderful news! I tip my hat to CBS!March 24, 2021 at 6:44 pm #1204156556
It still find it baffling that ATWT’s Jake Silbermann (Noah) was continuously overlooked for a Younger Actor nomination, when his character’s storyline was just as challenging and his work equally strong as that of his co-star, Van Hansis (Luke), who was showered with multiple consecutive nominations.March 24, 2021 at 6:14 pm #1204156399
I love it when Y&R’s music supervisors throw in little surprises, using some of my most favorite compositions from the mid-2000’s which have been popping up more regularly the last couple weeks, like the one I’ve affectionately come to call “Sharon’s theme” (as it often accompanied Sharon’s scenes at the time). It played during Rey’s conversation with Sharon and Faith in the 3/8/21 episode, where Rey realizes they’ve all overcome so much, “but we’ve made it through and it’s made us stronger”. Such a nice touch and it’s these attentive little nods to the history of Y&R that add so much to the show!March 24, 2021 at 6:04 pm #1204156355
^^^ Agreed, Sharon Case always shines with this kind of material. And Alyvia has been killing it pretty much all year, such an incredible talent!
