Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith are both nominated in the Younger Actor category at the Daytime Emmy Awards, and below you can see the clips they selected for Emmy voters. Up first is Chandler, who selected the scenes after his character Will got drunk and snogged Kris Kristofferson’s son.

Here’s Freddie’s Emmy Reel. His character Sonny doesn’t have the hysterical drama that Will has, so Freddie’s scenes are much quieter, as he tells Will’s dad that he has feelings for the misty-eyed blond.

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT to … Adamo Ruggiero.

  • Now we have THE TOP 50 HOTTEST HUNKS OF THE 80’S! Please keep in mind that this countdown encompasses the whole of 80’s pop culture, from TV to Movies to Music, to miscellaneous. In other words … some of your favorites might not show up, because there’s just not enough room. But just consider this a sampling of some of the hot guys the 80’s had to offer!

    At #25 is … Matt Lattanzi. 54-year-old Matt starred in the 80’s classic My Tutor, and had a memorable bit in Rich and Famous, but he’s probably best known for meeting Olivia Newton-John on the set of Xanadu, and introducing her to sex. Last we heard, he was living “off the grid” in a teepee in California.
