Outstanding Lead Actor in a Digital Daytime Drama Series
The Rich and the Ruthless
The Rich and the Ruthless is a character driven story centered on two kindred spirits— soap ingénue CALYSTA JEFFRIES and legendary producer AUGUSTUS BARRINGER. The moment he auditioned her years earlier for the role of Ruby. Stargazer, Augustus knew he had found his latest muse in the raw and talented Calysta. While the driving arc is the complicated bond between Calysta and Augustus, R&R is a multigenerational, dramedy ensemble piece. The audience will grow to love, hate and, in some cases, love to hate many among the motley crew of vicious soap divas,chiseled hunks, and treacherous network television executives who make up this world.
