Finola Hughes for so many of her scenes, and Ian Buchanan in his double role as Fuke and Duke. In supporting, perhaps Anders Hove (not sure if he qualifies–maybe as guest star), Jason Thompson, Kimberly McCullough. So many spectacular GH performances in the Robin/Faison s/l. Scrubs’ daughter Emma for younger actress


Susan Flannery, Heather Tom & Sharon Case for Lead Actress
Eric Braeden & Michael Muhney for Lead Actor
B&B for Best Drama. Stephanie’s death did it!
Jacqueline MacInnes Wood for Younger Actress

Mary SF

I know there are many great performances worthy of a Emmy nod, but my sentimental favorite, but probably doesn’t have a hope in hell of getting nominated, would be Doug Davidson on Y&R. I think that scene where he had to shoot his own son was one of the best moments on the show this year. I know no one will agree with me and tell me all the other actors who deserve a nod more than him, but I guess I like the underdog. I hope DD at least submits the scene for consideration.


Amen, Mary SF. That poor man killed those scenes and is very deserving.


I wish they would of added the guest star categories So Hove and Kassie Deprive can win emmys.

Lead Actor
Jerry Ver Dorn
Steve Burton
Doug Davidson
Ian Buchanon

Lead Actress
Susan Fanney
Finola Huges
Heather Toms
Erika Slezak

Supporting Actor
Andrew Hoves
Roger Howarth (GH)
Jason Thompson
Tristan Rogers

Supporting Actress
Kimberly McCullough
Arianne Zucker
Katherine Kelly Lang
Kassie Depaiva (GH for the scenes Blair tells todd she is marrying Tomas)

For Series

OLTL Final Episode
GH–To many to choose from….Thanksgiving? Jacks vs. Sonny/Jax showdown?..
B&B-Stephanie’s death


Sorry, but I don’t feel anyone from OLTL should be nominated. They worked 2 WEEKS when the actors on the other shows put in a full year. I really wouldn’t be fair, no matter how deserving they may have been in the past.

I also don’t feel a person who was on for only 7 shows should be in a supporting category, for the same reasons.

It would be nice if there were awards for guest appearances though.


Of the 8 or so comments, the only ones I agree with so far that are worthy are:

Doug Davidson (Y&R)
Susan Flannery (B&B)
Jason Thompson (GH)
Finola Hughes (GH)
Heather Tom (B&B)

No disrespect, but I just don’t see Andre Hove’s’ acting being that mindblowing – unless it was for a guest star nomination. Sadly I don’t see what Ian Buchanan has done this far on GH that is above and beyond what anyone else has done.

I could possibly see Sharon Case only because the way the character was written wanted me to smack her almost every day for several months, so that has to be good acting there as well.


To edit my comment, I meant ANDERS. This bugged me after I went to bed last night. I just knew I spelled the man’s name wrong. I’m sorry.

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
