Emmy contender Christian LeBlanc (Michael) opens up toMichael Fairman about The Young and the Restless being snubbed when the 2009 Emmy nominations were announced, given the stellar work the soap put out in 2008.
Michael Fairman: Were you shocked, as so many were that perennial powerhouse “Y&R” did not get Emmy nominations in Show, Writing or Directing?
Christian LeBlanc:I am surprised we are not up for Best Show, but so much is relied upon what you submitted. It’s so subjective, and I am under no illusion that I am the overall best leading actor, EVER! Damn it! (He laughs) Look, it’s an honor, but it’s an honor we give to daytime in general because the Emmys are a business proposition. We want to get people to watch by showing them what our best could possibly be.
