40th Annual Pre-Nominations Ballot Revealed! Lead Actress Category Submissions!

Courtesy/ABC

The 40th annual Daytime Emmy Award Pre-Nomination balloting kicked-off on January 30th for the four Daytime Drama acting categories which included: Lead Actor and Actress and Supporting Actor and Actress.

As previously reported, the Younger Actor and Actress nominees automatically qualify into the blue ribbon round because there were only nine submissions for each category and the rules state that ten go through to the next round as determined by this first round of voting.

Nelson Branco of Soap Opera Uncensored (through a leaked document) printed the Pre-Nomination ballot and the scenes submitted for voting in the four acting categories in his latest issue, now making the rounds, and also available to his SOU subscribers.

In the Lead Actress category there are thirteen submissions, meaning ten will make it to the next round …  and the women vying for the honors this year are:

Susan Flannery, B&B –  SCENE:  Outside of her goodbye party, Stephanie comforts Brooke, who wants to spend more time with the Forrester matriarch. Stephanie asks Brooke to lead the Forrester family and maintain peace after she passes away in a bittersweet scene.

Heather Tom, B&B – SCENE:  Katie announces to Bill and Brooke she’s leaving her marriage, new baby and life — and that she regrets ever getting pregnant.

Deidre Hall, DAYS  – SCENE:  Marlena and Will discuss his dating life at the Salem Pub.

Peggy McKay, DAYS – SCENE: Caroline and Victor reflect on the past and present — and how much they have changed.

Finola Hughes, GH – SCENE:  Patrick confesses to Anna that he cheated on Robin.

Kelly Monaco, GH – SCENE:  Jason hands Sam her dead baby.

Kelly Sullivan, GH – SCENE:  Connie/Kate relives her rape in front of Ewen.

Laura Wright, GH – SCENE: Carly lashes out at Sonny and blames him for Jason’s death. She later apologizes and kisses Sonny.

Kassie DePaiva, OLTL – SCENE:   Blair tells Todd she trusts him and suggests they reconcile before they make love.

Sharon Case, Y&R – SCENE: Sharon learns she’s bipolar and debates taking medication from her therapist.

Jeanne Cooper, Y&R  – SCENE: Kay goes ballistic on Tucker for agreeing to marry Sharon on the day Victor is “buried.”

Melody Thomas Scott, Y&R SCENE: An overwhelmed and emotional Nikki visits the Newman Ranch for the first time since it was mysteriously engulfed in flames.

Michelle Stafford, Y&R- SCENE:   In front of a crowd at Crimson Lights, Phyllis freaks out on Christine after learning The Bug is suing her.

Some notable information; The Bold and the Beautiful’s Katherine Kelly Lang submitted herself in the Supporting Actress category for when Brooke cradles Stephanie in her final moments before she dies, not Lead Actress.  General Hospital’s brilliant Jane Elliot (Tracy) is missing from the ballot completely.  Kassie DePaiva is in the Lead Actress category for her work on One Life to Live and in the Supporting Actress category for her work on General Hospital.

So soapers, what do you think of the Lead Actress submissions?  Who do you think should be in the Top Ten to go to the next round?  What glaring omissions do you see from the race? Weigh-in!

I like the GH pre-nominees, Kelly Sullivan should be a shoe-in for a nomination, if not to win the whole thing this year. She’s been brilliant. Just curious how Kassie DePaiva got included for Supporting Actress for GH when she was only on a handful of times, and Jane Elliot got left off the ballot altogether. That’s a travesty. Unless Jane chose not to submit her name for whatever reason. Michael, any way you can get clarification on that? But Kassie for GH? No, I don’t see it. If any of the women from OLTL should have been nominated for… Read more »

If the actor / actress does not submit they are not up for a nomination. Last Year , Vanessa Marcil decided not enter. There were others as well. And Sorry but Kelly Sullivan would be my 4th choice out of the nominees from GH.

they handily made their mark this past year.

Susan Flannery, Heather Tom and Sharon Case for Lead Actress!!

I kinda had a moment last year…..a hissy fit… which harkens back to the old days…. i so wanted Crystal Chappelle, DAYS… or Debbi Morgan, AMC to win.

i actually went and watched one episode of B&B to watch Heather Tom… and i was convinced she deserved it…. evenso…. wah!

looking at their submissions…. Heather looks strong again….

Deidre Hall…. I hope you make the top 5!

My two favorite performances this year were Finola Hughes and Jane Elliot. I’m sad that Elliot’s not on the ballot for her brilliant scenes around Edward’s death.

Laurie McRae

Because (up until Steve Burton’s debut on Y&R), I only watched GH, I can’t speak to the work of the actresses on the other shows, but I’m thrilled to see 4 such deserving GH actresses, all of whom gave BRILLIANT performances, on the pre-nom list. I wholeheartedly agree, though, Jane Elliot should be on the pre-nom list for, at the very least, Best Supporting Actress…& Kassie DePaiva should NOT be for her minimal screen time on GH.

Sharon Case and Heather Tom for best actress, I would have to give the edge to Sharon Case, she was the best, brilliant in the bipolar storyline.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

oh this smarts….. the press always supports Sharon…. ie: how the writers just obliterated her character… and yet…. Sharon Case, can act her way outa a paper bag… she made do and saved herself… she’s that likeable.

Heather Tom… for the story submissions… she is STrong….

my hope…..

Heather Tom
Sharon Case
Kelly Sullivan
Laura Wright
Deidre Hall.

unfortunately… Susan Flannery, to tribute her.
Kelly Monaco, for her press and DWTS.

these two may drop out Deidre and Sharon… possibly Kelly Sullivan…

I like Sharon Case very much and she has had a tough year I am just not to sure about the scene she picked. I think if I had been advising her it would have been the melt down at the ranch. Probably the girls from GH picked the best reels. But then again I have not seen DOL ladies or KP from OLTL.

Emmys are not to take seriously anymore you know, it is backstage politics above all and if your scenes are quite good you have it ! This year the one deserving WHO SUBMIT their work are Finola Hugues and Jason Thompson from GH and JT chose the good scene so i bet they are the winner if the emmys folks are not too much dumb…we will see..lol

Iakovos
Guest
Iakovos

Really? No Jane Elliot as GH’s Tracy? That is a mistake.

I suppose I can understand not seeing Erika Slezak from OLTL on the list. But her final hours as Erika and the rest of Llanview prepared to end the run were very good. I would put her emotional but level portrayal on a higher platform than some of the more hysterical turns daytime actresses make.

The B&B writing can be so lame but no matter what is penned for them to do, Susan Flannery, Heather Tom, and Katherine Kelly Lange make it work.

Gillian

Kelly Monaco is so deserving of this! Her scenes were amazing. Heather Tom & Finola Hughes scenes were also incredible.

Well, KKL has to try something diff. I don’t know why she has not been nominated, let alone won. Good luck to my B&B and Days gang. Y&R–I don’t know–it just hasn’t been good in so long.

lilou
Guest
lilou

meh…some submit themselves in the VERY WRONG category, i mean Peggy McKay as lead..come on..Kassie de Paiva for GH come on..KKL submit herself on supporting, she is a LEAD point blank. And Jane Eliott chose to not submit at all..lol..i guess Finola will have the emmy this year..

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

yeah, Mamma Caroline…. Hello? Hola? Smelling Salts…

i’d almost rather see Suzanne Rogers in this category….

———————

Peggy McKay was on target with her alzheimers’ story… and with Bo…. having said that… she’d have had a better shot at supporting. I love her.

———————-

Finola is a def… shot at winning….

that would put Jane Elliott for best supporting….

I’d prefer GH win most…. then Y&R.

—————————

I think some fans may agree with me…. remember all the years it was the Y&R and B&B show…? just saying…. so many other shows over the years deserved recognition.

I know her return wasnt long, but i wouldve liked the actress who played crazy Alison Perkins nominated for at least best return by an actor. She was one of my favorites during the final weeks of OLTLs network run.

Katherine Kelly Landg as supportive? LOL that must be a joke,she is the MAIN,LEAD ACTRESS of the show! She deserved to be submitted as LEAD!

Eileen Davidson? Kristen.

IS IT POSSIBLE THEY CHOSE NOT TO SUBMIT THEMSELVES? OR THEY DIDN’T EVEN MAKE THIS ROUND?

hey, it’s possible. i hope it’s because Eileen Davidson chose to submit next year.

Jane Elliot being snubbed is ridiculous! Her performances post Edward’s death have been remarrkable & heart warming… Could she be nominated in the supporting actress category (albeit she deserves to be in the lead category)?

Sharon Case should win it hands down! She delivered in everything that was thrown at her. This has been a year to remember for the beautiful actress. The writers pulled her every which way but loose and she delivered each time no matter what predicament she was placed in. It would be a sad day in daytime soap history if this actress does not get best actress. She is an awesome talent. She deserves some of the best writing the team as to offer from here on out. She lost her child and shortly after that she lost her husband… Read more »

I agree that Case should have picked the scenes when she burned down the ranch. She pulled off all of her scenes. I loved that they chose Adam Adamson to play her son. When he told his mother that he would take care of her and stayed by her side, I cried all over the place and I adore this Noah. You are to stick by your mother no matter what. He deserves an award as well. In his scenes he could have really been her son. It was so heartfelt like a true mother-son relationship. He stood up for… Read more »

There are 13 pre-nominees, but only 10 will make it to the actual nominations! What an incredible list! With B&B’s Susan Flannery, B&B – (Stephanie) and Heather Tom (Katie), Days’s Peggy McKay (Caroline), GH’s Finola Hughes (Anna), Kelly Monaco (Sam), Kelly Sullivan (Connie/Kate) and Y&R’s Sharon Case (Sharon), Jeanne Cooper (Katherine), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) all on the list, having submitted awesome scenes, the 3 I’d have to eliminate would be Deidre Hall (Marlena on Days) because her role was more supporting this past year, Kassie DePaiva (Blair on OLTL) and Laura Wright (Carly on GH),… Read more »

Why in the world is Deidre Hall nominated and not Erika Slezak. Yes, Deidre has been around the block for a while but she is one of the worst actresses ever. she has one of the strongest fan bases but as an actress – she’s not even charismatic. Sami would be a far better choice for DOOL.

Days Of Our Lives

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

Photo: JPI

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

So place your bets on who will turn out to be the murderer via the comment section below and let us know what you thoughts on Mike’s run on DAYS!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
