Chance of a nomination: Fairly low, unless sentiment still rides high.
The Young and the Restless: Aw, jeez. It seems we're still not done with Maria Bell! CBS chose to submit the dethroned exec producer-head writer's two-episode funeral for the not-very-dead Victor, which may have been the only way to go since Y&R was so bloody dreadful through most of 2012, but still. Why submit anything? Y&R should have taken the high road and said, "We sucked last year and we're taking ourselves out of the contest." Yeah, right. Instead, we get one more musty back-from-the-dead story (shows 9999 and 10000, airdates: Sept. 26 and 27, 2012) with most of the actors phoning in their reactions to Victor's miraculous resurrection because even they're bored stiff.
To be fair, there are some minor moments of enjoyment, like trashy widow Sharon showing up at the memorial in what looks like Bjork's old Oscar dress. But it's all so lazy and uninspired it makes you want to scream.
Chance of a nomination: Unfortunately, pretty damn good because Y&R benefits from massive voting power within the TV Academy, enough to push the show into the best soap category year in, year out, whether deserved or not.
Update (Tuesday, April 30): David Michaels, senior executive director at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, contacted us to say that, while Y&R did have such voting power in the past, rules are currently in place to prohibit that. Yay, NATAS! —ML :teehee:
LMMFAO :blulaugh: BRAVA Michael Logan he put Y&R 2012 bullshit on full fucking blast man. <3
