Wow……………Y&R really cleaned up the nominations!
FINALLY, Katherine Kelly Lang made the list of nominations.
Why in the world is Bryton James nominated for Younger Actor??? He didn’t do anything!

B&B will win Best Drama!!!

Mary SF
Guest

Why are you getting mad at the show? Ms Case submitted a reel, she got a pre nom. It was the final panel from the Academy that decided on the nominations, and it will be members of the Academy that will vote for the winner. It has nothing to do with the show. If you want to protest something — don’t watch the Emmy broadcast, complaini about the way nominations are selected, but don’t stop watching the show, that is a little like cutting off your nose to spite your face.

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS !!!!!!!!!!!! SHARON CASE IS THE BEST OF THE BEST! NO ONE DESERVES BEST ACTRESS MORE THAN HER. YET YOU HAVE THESE FOOLS LIKE MCE AND JESSICIA C. AVERY AND CHELSEA WHO MAKE THE SHOW SUCK #BULLSHIT! DONE!

Yeah what about Sharon case she has really delivered that time she was on the run and that lady took her car wrecked and got killed and when Sharon was in the diner and saw it on the news that look on her face was classic and where she burned down victors house. Then again not all actors submit their work for an emmy I know Robin Strasser from one life to live doesn’t.

Charlie

You forgot Sharon Newman aka Sharon Case! That is the winner! She was outstanding! She was put through more than I have every seen in 34 years of soaps. What a fantastic actress. I see people on there like MS MCE and JC all suck! #Y&R If Sharon does not win I protect the show enough already the writing has gotten so bad!!!!!!!

But I do see Ms. Cry baby EZ bake oven Avery and the worst character and Con artist who’s only talent is to complain and get pregnant on the show is up there!!! Im so disappointed!

Sharon Case snubbed. Shameful! Doug Davidson Snubbed Shameful yet they have these idiots like MCE aka Chelsea and JC Avery who I can’t stand. Also MS really aka Phyllis. Again??? She will never win. We know its going to SF. Susan F. B&B

In the Supporting I will be real shocked if KKL does not take this one home if she had put herself in lead she would of had to go up against Flannery I am sure that is why she put herself in supporting. I can’t see where ME or JC had the material to get the nomination. I guess cooking class and crayons were the motive yuck.

Doug Davidson didn’t get snubbed- he is on the list for Best Performance by a Lead Actor– Hopes he wins it– he deserves it.

It’s almost 35 years I’m watching Y&R. It most definitely was Sharon Case’s year. This was supposed to be her second win! Very disappointed in what is going on. MCE and JC who play Chelsea and Avery are the worst characters I can’t even deal with it. 🙁 🙁

Especially Finola Hughes

Kelly Sullivan should have been nominated!

I think Connie from GH should have been nominated for her split personalities. Her reliving the rape was incredible acting.

matthew
Guest
matthew

Kelly Sullivan for sure! The nominees from GH are ridiculous! I know the big 50th anniversary was on April fools day but damn what a joke! Lindsey Morgan?! Really?! I’ve never seen anything like this. I know sometimes the deserving actors get snubbed but that’s because the nominations went to other shows, not their own shows rejects! Someone’s dropping acid.

Finola Hughes got snubbed!

matthew

WTF! besides Jason Thompson all the nominees from GH are the ones I fugues wouldn’t make it thru the first cut. The panel must be drawing names out of a hat. The girl they dumped as Kristina because she can’t act got nominated?! Come on, this is hysterical. Makes GH look like crap tv on emmy nite when,it’s actually the best show on daytime by far. What are these people smoking?

heidi

heidi

Agreed!

Nikki
Guest

I could not agree more, Matthew! GH has been the best soap last year and currently! Finola being snubbed with all of her work with Robin’s death and the Faision debacle is absolutely ridiculous!

matthew
Guest
matthew

There must be a conspiracy against GH’s powerhouse cast taking home any Emmy’s and instead if flat out snubbing the show they took the sneaky route and nominated everyone who thru their name in the ring with no reel to back it up. The panels obviously on crack.

Ces

Ces

Yeah, Peggy McCay got her nomination.

Patrick
Guest

i will say this for sentiment.

I miss Shawn at the Brady Pub.

Caroline’s scenes w/Bo were Tears.

any scenes she has now…. w/Kayla and Victor are paid attention to.

her storyline – however short – were Affecting.

Ces
Guest
Ces

Yes, but Finola Hughes is all around perfection not just for a short
stint that Days has conveniently ended.

I miss the original Brady Fish Market the most 🙂

Phyllis Scott

The actors on Y&R are stellar, but the stars in the sky go to Michael Muhney, Michelle Stafford, and Melissa Claire Egan!! Non Pareil!

JUNE

NO! I am so sick of this MCE as Chelsea Y&R I can’t take it! I think the show is over #Y&R. Why is she even on this show! #RIDICULOUS!

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

she was nominated for emmys on AMC… and I don’t get it. (?)

what is her game? she doesn’t keep my attention…

so, i must be missing her act.

she’s doing the same thing, like on AMC…. keeping the couple’s apart….
JR and Babe
Adam and Sharon.

outside of that… no real permanence to draw from….

Genie

ARE THEY BLIND! I CAN’T STAND AVERY JC AND CHELSEA MCE ON Y&R! OMG IT IS SO OVER. SHARON CASE IS MY WINNER. HOW MUCH MORE CAN I TAKE / I MISS BILL BELL! 🙁

They threw Sharon Case under the bus after giving her the lousiest roles in daytime history. She gave her all to the garbage and this is what she get. Only to be overlooked because Stafford is their golden girl. This has got to stop and believe me it will. There’s an old saying and so very true. You reap what you sow. Stafford has done nothing this past year that is deserving of an emmy nod. It’s favortism. Something has to change. Case has been done wrong for way too long and it needs to stop. She is an outstanding… Read more »

I agree. Sharon Case was so robbed! So sad what they did. She had this with a land slid. She gave a very diverse performance ever this past year and she keeps giving it to us. Im a fan 35 yrs with this show and I know she was supposed to win best actress. We all know what is going on here! 🙁

It could have been worse. Molly (don’t know her real name) got the pre-nom. LM is difinitely a more deserving one comparing to Molly.

Congratulations to Michelle Stafford. So we’ll deserved! She has been backbenched since new regime arrived and yet she is BOSS. So richly deserving. I could watch her read the phone book. I was looking forward to self entitlement seething rage from Muhney but he got nominated. Now we have to live with his grandiose of perceived greatness. Loved that Jason, Peter and beautiful Doug got the nomination. He was so flawless in the Ricky storyline. Sorry about MTS surprised by McKay did not know she was lead.

I agree that Michelle Stafford may still have that it factor – that take no prisoners – ACT. however… her belonging is tired… growing weary…..

Sharon Case delivered a multi-faceted year….

did she save Y&R from doldrums….. from spiraling.

judging from fan and serial press…. YES.

Chandler Massey is more Supporting that Younger Leading Man – doh.. Peggy McCay?? Exactly what did she do that deserves an Emmy nod? Where are the ladies from GH? Congrats to Jason Thompson & Ari Zuker.

Mary SF
Guest

The whole system is based on a reel that is under 5 minutes worth of work. Peggy McCay most likely submitted her scenes when she was coming to grips that she might have dementia. The problem is the whole awards system is flawed– I think it needs to rework or done away with.

Ces
Guest
Ces

I agree with you Mary. It has always been flawed and shouldn’t be based on a 5 minute reel but a majority of good work for the good year like Finola Hughes who is always on target in all her scenes not just a short story arc. Oh well..

It’s based on favoritism #overtheemmys

k/kay

Yes you are so right Rod thanks for saying what I was thinking I would like to see Doug pick it up for Best Actor because this will probably be the last chance since he is once again being used for props for other undeserving cast members on that show. Lead actress would be nice if Peggy Mckay took it just because everyone else has won one. Even though I did not see her work since I do not watch Days.

Finola Hughes and Robin Mattson not being on here is ridiculous!! Why in the world are there only 4 Outstanding Lead Actress nominations? This sucks!!

Joel
Guest
Joel

I agree with all of you regarding the ladies of GH. Something’s rotten in Demark here. Kelly Sullivan (remembering Connie’s rape) was also an exceptional stand-out. Not nominating her, Finola, Robin, etc. makes no sense when you look at someone’s acting who is definitely not as seasoned, Lindsey Morgan as Kristina, who got a nomination, not to mention Y & R getting 23 nominations, when it was talked about all year how the show was pretty bad. This nomination process sucks!

Are they kidding me? How do Finola Hughes and Laura Wright get left out of the Lead Actress category? That’s an absolute travesty. I’m also shocked to see that Roger Howarth for Lead Actor and Robin Mattson for Supporting Actress didn’t make it. They were both fantastic on GH last year. I would have thought they would have been a slam dunk for a nomination. Did the people that vote on these nominations actually watch the tapes that were submitted, or do they just randomly check off whatever names on the list that they feel like checking off?

I forgot to mention Kelly Sullivan as well. Another one that was pre-nominated and got left off the final list. How great was she during the peak of the Kate/Connie storyline? I remember watching her performances last year and thinking, “might as well shine up that Emmy for her right now”, and she doesn’t even get nominated. So many terrible snubs this year.

You all need to look at Frank Valentini, who has a horrible track record when it comes to nominating things. Ergo, the reason why GH probably didn’t do so well in the acting categories. With Y&R/B&B pretty much dominating the acting cats, I don’t see Y&R winning Drama Series, unless it was something that Jill Farren Phelps submitted that was far more superior than anything Maria Arena Bell did. If that’s the case, then Y&R may have a shot. However, I’m thrilled for KKL for finally getting that elusive Emmy nom that she has so richly deserved over the years.… Read more »

I like Sharon Case, too, and if she is ever to win a nomination or Emmy, the writers need to realistically make her character strong. We need to see Sharon Newman really evolve into someone other than the drippy punching bag she has become (Thank you, MAB!). Let me see her risk something, lose something, find something in herself (not others!) to achieve or succeed or try (even if she fails). Sharon needs some stakes in life. Case is a fine actor done no ofavors by the plot lines given her in recent years. It took until now — 25years!… Read more »

It is a lovely gesture all five broadcast dramas, including OLTL, received a nod as Best Dramatic Series. Still, I think only three merit the nod: GH (for consistent excellence); B&B (for the “Stephanie dies” storyline alone); and OLTL (its grand and satisfying finish on ABC). I quibble with the noms for Y&R and B&B in the writing category. Serial dramas do seem to rely on recycled storylines but these two shows rely too much on that, and the storytelling quality has been less than what it has been in other years. Y&R surely gets lots of love from the… Read more »

Can someone tell me if Venesa Marcil’s run is up on General Hospital. I thought she was hanging around, for awhile…….. not permanently, but for a little while. She appeared at just after April 1st, and last aired Friday April 19th. I don’t call that hanging around for awhile…..

Anyone know anything.

But they said Jax was hanging around, and he hasn’t been seen, only but to usher Brenda back in Port Charles and thus dump her.

Doug Davidson, (Paul Williams),The Young and the Restless should win this… The storyline with his son Ricky.!!!! A stellar performance from this fine actor… Please give Mr. Davidson more scripts worthy of his talent… He can handle it!!!

You are right. It will be between him and Michael Muhney. Muhney is good. He came in and made the Adam character his own. Davidson should have won it last year. He has been giving some stellar performances lately. They should give him more heavy roles to play because we all know he will nail them. The best leading actors on the show are Davidson and Muhney.

Glad to see KKL finally got a nom. Too bad she had to go supporting to get it.

Don’t know why OLTL is on for Best Show as it wasn’t even on for a month in 2012, was it? But they go by one ep, so there you have it.

Nice to see Michael Muhney nominated.

Overall, I’d say I’m happy. There are some names I’d like to see, but that’s always the case, isn’t it?

Oltl was robbed last year from a nomination for best drama where clearly it was the best show in 2011. I would say its a nice surprise. In my opinion I think oltl should win for writing if they submitted those episodes involving Vicki’s speech. That’s what daytime soaps are all about.

I really think GH overall should have gotten more especially in the acting! I watched all of them last year and GH was always #1 for me, OLTL was #2, and after OLTL was gone Y&R took #2 in my opinion. The quality of the acting… for a whole show follows my favorite rankings above with individual exceptions… like Susan Flannery. To have GH miss out on so many truly talented performances is very shocking and disappointing. With 11 fabulous actresses in the pre-nom process… to come up with only 4 is very sad!!! The 11 ladies are all very… Read more »

Someone should tell the folks at GH who to pay off for these noms next year, because this is a joke. Aside from Jason Thomson, the others are not only the wrong actors to be nominated, but the ladies? Come on! Laura Wright, Kelly, Kelly Sullivan, Finola Hughes, Robin Mattson, where the hell are they? Even Roger Howarth should’ve been nominated! BB and Y&R got everything, which makes no sense unless it was a public vote. This has to be rigged.

ITA- the whole award system is either corrupted or simply a popularity contest with members voting for people they know. Most of us work day in and day out, and the reward is doing a job well and getting paid for it. I don’t need a little statue on my shelf- so why does the performing arts community whether it is film or music have this constant need to award their works?

I’m also happy Michael Muhney got nommed, but where is Sharon Case?! She did some of her BEST work in 2012! Lead actress and supporting actress, I guess won’t even matter with Flannery and Lang’s reels this year, and rightfully so,… Read more »

ditto….

that it’ll be Flannery and Lang’s year –

along… with the upset that Michael Muhney could and deserves a win… just as much as the ubber best Jason Thompson.

i’m venting now… it’s a major upset and will be unbelievable till show time… that this has all happened.

THIS is why the Emmys keep losing viewers BECAUSE THEY DON’T NOMINATE PEOPLE WHO DESERVE THEM. How the hell did General Hospital not get more noms than Young and the Restless? Y&R was HORRIFIC last year and is slowly getting worse by each day! GH last year and to this day, have had compelling, emotional stories that turned out outstanding performances, especially from the ladies!! Robin Mattson, Finola Hughes, Laura Wright, and Kelly Sullivan completely deserved to be on this list. Kelly Monaco also was very powerful during the baby-switch storylines! Not to mention Maurice Bernard and Roger Howarth who… Read more »

Happy for DOOL, especially Chandler and Arianne, but I find it hilarious that DOOL’s writing team wasn’t nominated! The show sucks and the ratings are low! So glad DOOL’s writing team didn’t get nominated!

As far as B&B for best writing team and drama. I don’t know about that one. All B&B fans know there’s been a certain triangle going on for the last three years that we’ve been begging them to end. As far as Stephanie’s death, that scene caused pandemonium with the fans. There were more people outraged about that then ever before. The B&B hotline crashed, their twitter was overrun. They really pissed off alot of fans with that like I have never, ever seen before. So I don’t know about them being the best writing team last year.

It is sad, but the NATAS have become nothing more than bullshit..

I would be happy if there were no phony NATAS..
Let the public vote and not have a swayed panel decide..

So, it is true…Michelle Stafford is someone’s golden girl. Sharon Case won that lead actress nomination face and hands down this go around. Stafford , no way. Something is wrong. I thought Lang belonged in the lead actress category. I believe they are trying to force some things down our throat that just aren’t there in the cards. Oh, well…………………………..The viewers should pick the winners so it can be fair. I have a problem with this. Something’s wrong. If Michael Muhney does not win for the lead actor category, I know for a fact that it’s something fishy going on.

I vehemently agree with everyone who has rightly said that GH actresses Kelly Sullivan,Kelly Monaco,Finola Hughes,Laura Wright ad Robin Mattson were completely and utterly ROBBED. Roger Howarth and Maurice Benard should have nominated,as well. I hope at least Jason Thompson wins and that GH wins Drama Series and the technical awards.

your statement alone…. means… let’s not bother watching the emmy’s…. it’s a travesty…. a lie…. Connie – Sam – Anna – Carly – Heather….. Todd and Sonny. Top of the line ACT. what are they on? the voting panel? what retardation planet do they reside? it’s clear cut…. Susan Flannery, B&B Jason Thompson, GH Katherine Kelly Lang, B&B Bradford Anderson, GH ——————– I’d love to see DAYS – Ari Zuker, “Nicole” – DOOL…. WIN to acknowledge Salem’ites. ————– Stunning to even believe or surmise that this happened. whats to say… thankfully so many fans are more right than wrong.

Days needs to have wins this year! I am hoping for Chandler and Arianne, but Freddie and Peggy did a great job as well! But why is Arianne under Supporting instead of lead? That should be where Peggy is under!

I’m still staggered by all this…

Nobody is happy with the nominees ..
That is what happens when there is panel who chose and not the public..
Undoubtedly the panel is made up of Y&R lovers..

What theses awards amount to is dress-up night bullshit, a steaming pile of bull ..

I won’t be watching, it is only fair.. (eye for an eye thing lol)
that panel had upset me so eh with them not watching..
I will go on-line and to see who the loser’s were, after it over over….

GH was over the top great this year as were many of the actors, shameful there was no notice of them..

In this interview, they discuss how they had high hopes for the continuation of the series, how it ultimately fizzled, and what it was like to be a part of the then, groundbreaking first, for a daytime drama series along with One Life to Live.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
