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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Photo: JPI

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
