SOAP CENTRAL: Digital Series Emmy nominees feature familiar soap faces

The Daytime Emmys expanded the number of categories devoted to digital drama series. We chatted with the nominated stars to learn more about the series they star in and to get their reactions to landing Emmy nominations.

That isn't to say that the nominees for talk shows, game shows, cooking shows, court shows, and the countless other daytime programming options are any less important. For whatever reason, most other genres fail to elicit the fervent support that soaps do.
