43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Nominations Revealed! Ceremonies Will Not Be Televised!

Courtesy/EastSiders

Nominations were announced this morning on The Talk, and then by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences on their website for the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

Leading the nominations with 27 was CBS. The Young and the Restless, followed by General Hospital with 24, and The Bold and the Beautiful with 23.  The awards ceremony will be held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites in Los Angeles, California on Sunday, May 1st.   The Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards will also be held at the Bonaventure on Friday, April 29th, 2016.

However, this year’s press release on the awards came with some not so good news, as of today, it looks as if the event will not be televised after last year’s successful production that aired on POP:  “After last year’s critically successful Daytime telecast, it is with great disappointment that The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announces that there will not be a broadcast of the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy  Awards,” said Bob Mauro, President. “After months of negotiations to find show sponsorship, the NATAS Executive Board has decided that the current climate for awards shows prohibits the possibility of a telecast this year. With that said, we will be putting on a world-class awards celebration honoring the best and brightest of Daytime television and look forward to an exciting show. All efforts regarding returning the annual gala to television in 2017 are underway.”

“We are especially grateful for our passionate Daytime fans and are looking forward to producing a grand gala that honors the talents and artistries of all the professionals that represent Daytime television,” said David Michaels, SVP, Daytime Emmy Awards.   Last year’s Executive Producer, Michael Levitt of Michael Levitt Productions has, again, signed on as Executive Producer of the 43rd Annual ceremonies.

Here now are the nominees! Congratulations to all the hard-working men and women in front of the camera and behind the scenes.

These nominations…………………WOW! A Travesty!

As far as not being televised, THERE ARE GOING TO BE A LOT OF ANGRY FANS when they hear about this!

Sara

Shocked over some of the choices in the supporting actress/actor categories. Is there anyway we can see what was submitted? Something is not right.

su0000
su0000

I wish;
The actors would stop submitting themselves.
If I were a soap actor I would keep my dignity and never enter myself into the dog and pony show, the emmys.

The way the program is run, the judging, the whole stink of it all, I would never submit myself to be judged ..

If they want to know the true winners, let the fans vote.. not a judge that sees a clip, but fans who see every scene through the year.

I am not an Emmy fan, not at all.. more so after the huge emmy scandal that just passed.. judges found to voting but never even looking at the submissions lol sheeesh

Mary
Mary

I am curious. Why do you call these nominations a travesty? The pool of actors is not really all that large given that there is only DOOL, Young and Restless, General Hospital and Bold and Beautiful to choose from. I will agree that there are going to be angry fans because the awards will not be televised.

Derrick
Derrick

Mary, a few of the nominees left me scratching my head!

I DON’T CARE ABOUT GH………………..And I hope Tony Geary DOESN’T win Lead Actor for the 9th TIME!!!!!!

Mary Beth Evans was more Supporting last year than Lead.
Tracey Bregman got nominated over Gina Tognoni and Melissa Claire Egan???
When will Eric Braeden get nominated for Lead Actor?????
Lauralee Bell got nominated over Kelly Sullivan for Supporting Actress??? The only thing I can think of what Lauralee did was when she lost her baby! This is probably why she made the finals.
Not digging Melissa Reeves so I don’t know how she made the finals for Supporting Actress.
Why in the HELL didn’t Casey Moss make the final for Younger Actor.
Max Ehrich was barely on screen last year but I’m not SURPRISED that he got nominated.
Pierson Fode??????? I was wondering how he made the final but then I found out that he submitted the scene where he punched his dad!
True O’Brien’s acting didn’t wow me last year so I don’t know how she made the final for Younger Actress.
Why didn’t Aly Lind made the final for Younger Actress. A lot of people are wondering why Hunter King made the final……….We know why she made the final and she’s going to do a 3-peat with Austin’s death!

Patrick
Patrick

that was my first reaction !!!!

I’ll take an online travesty… I’ve got to see… should my Kassie DePaiva WIN !

Bart…YOU ARE SO RIGHT ON!!!!! To me, lately, in terms of storytelling (in general), Y&R has been constantly both UP AND DOWN like a damn yo-yo…good one minute, and then EVEN WORSE the next!!!!! W-A-Y TOO WEIRD!!!!!!

Leslee

Can someone please tell me why Laura Wright wasn’t nominated???

sonniorsolita

Because not enough of her peers voted for her. 🙂 Seriously, I take your meaning. She had a great year and was as deserving as the women who were nominated.

These nominations are a travesty. Wow, just awful picks in so many categories. That being said, here are my choices, faced with what we have.
Show: Bold & Beautiful
Actor: Justin Hartley, Y&R
Actress: Finola Hughes, GH
Supporting actress: Jessica Collins, ex-Y&R
Supporting actor: Jacob Young, B&B
Younger actress: Ashlyn Pierce, ex-B&B
Younger actor: Bryan Craig, GH
Guest performer: Obba Babbatunde, B&B
Writing: B&B
Directing: Days

00oops..
they are using the politically incorrect word ”actress..

Outstanding Actor <- correct
Outstanding Actress <- not correct

Both are Actor <- correct

I'd like to have ''Dee Wallace – General Hospital'' bring home the gold.
and-
Kathleen Gati, Winterthorne
Anthony Geary, General Hospital

These 3 ladies, all of them deserve the gold;
Finola Hughes, General Hospital
Maura West, General Hospital
Kassie DePaiva, Days of our Lives

And why in heck is Bryan a ''young actor''? he is a man.
Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series
Bryan Craig, General Hospital

There should be a special category for;
Hunter King, The Young and the Restless lol

Ever notice;
Eric Braeden
Maurice Benard
never submit themselves.

Sprite

I disagree about actor/actress. We’re all mankind, but there is a distinction between men and women. Frankly, if you wanted to go there, it would just be one category. That would be fine with me. At the end of the day, it’s semantics, but I get your point. I just think calling women actors and not actresses steals their feminity, and that is something to be celebrated. It’s why Wonder Woman was my hero (heroine?) as a child. She represented women’s strengths and virtues, something this world needs more than ever. But again, I wouldn’t mind including men and women in the same category. We don’t give out awards for best female director vs best male director, etc. In any event, I hope Netflix or someone picks up the show so we can see it.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Agreed. I never refer to a female thespian as an actor….always as an actress.
Good turn of words, Sprite: “….calling women actors and not actresses steals their femininity”. Amen!!!!!
We, as women are all heroines.

Dan

Maurice Benard and Eric Braden did submit themselves, they both received pre-nominations, but didn’t make the final cut.

Patrick
Patrick

YES !

is it not…. saying, some thing

that Maurice Benard and Laura Wright (celebratory) DID NOT… (giddy)

deserve a nomination

ugh! same goes for tired ole Victor

HOWEVER : Y&R DUDS : Hunter King (Summer) and Bryton James (Devon) ???? !!!!! REALLY gobsmacked with dumbstruck… they are the definition of DULL

4ever DAYS

Hunter is going to need her large “rack” to hold all her Emmys!!

CeeCee

Now, now, 4 ever. We cannot make fun of what is God-given. I KNOW!!!! It’s not a good feeling. It’s as bad as a man being ridiculed for his tiny ‘feet’. LOL. Happy Easter….

LOL, Happy Easter to you too, CeeCee!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Agreed on all counts, su.
I did notice the categorically misplaced actors/actresses ….I did mention that children , in particular, should have their own category. Hunter King is a young, grown woman, not a young girl, as someone said…..just as you say, Bryan Craig is. Strange.

Jeremy
Jeremy

I’m pretty darn pleased for DAYS OF OUR LIVES,

Melissa Reeves is killing it!
MaryBeth is just delicious.
Kassie will WIN!!!
True O’ Brien, I miss Paige!
No Emmy love for Judi Evans & Christopher Sean? I know they were both pre-nominated.
Good for Peggy McKay, this year she really deserves this nod.
Very grateful that none of the ‘new kids on the block’ on DAYS were recognized.
Happy to see Brooklyn Rae (Emma), from GH made the cut! And, Dee Wallace!!! Some of the other GH nominations are the usual suspects, but I’m grateful, too that they got recognized, again. A bit surprised, Hayley Erin didn’t make the cut, she’s really ‘owned’ the role of Kiki. That’s all… for now.

Jeremy
Jeremy

Oh no… I just realized NO KATE MANSI????
No BILLY FLYNN??? Perhaps, submitting for Lead category was too ambitious? That’s a huge let down for Kate Mansi, what a big bummer. I’m hoping she will be eligible next year?!?!

CeeCee
CeeCee

I know, right, Jeremy? But, Bryton James, is a go?

It is terrible that this show wouldn’t be televised for all the fans to see and it is not fair to the actors and actresses who work so hard for their fans not to be recognized and honored in the right way that they should. We as fans watch the soaps for years and enjoy seeing them receiving their awards just like some fans enjoy the music award shows and the movies and other Tv shows awards. I hope someone will do something about this and change their minds.

Brian
Brian

If it’s Dr Malcom it’s Adam Leadbeater not Leitbetter. I think everyone nominated is deserving but there were a few actors that were even more deserving that didn’t even make the first round (PR and KA from Days to name a couple).

MARYANN VOLLENWEIDER

It’s horrible that they will not be televised, it makes me so angry – There are so many other awards shows being televised that are stupid and unnecessary.. these actors deserve their recognition and the fans deserve to watch it… very disturbing…

Ummm Lauralee Bell? Peggy McKay? Really? It’s bad enough seeing Hunter King nominated again but those two no talents are not lead actresses. PIcture me with the Caroline Brady confused look as I have a premonition of vomiting on her clam chowder. How do these three do it? Well I have an idea but it’s not based in fact so I will have a moment of angry silence like Lauralee Bell when she realizes she has lost yet another baby and court case. Sometimes I just don’t get it.

Peggy

xox!!

jaybird369

Mateo…dude…I get (and agree with) what you’re saying about both Lauralee Bell and Peggy McKay. But…for me, the difference between both of their on-screen characters is this: At this point, DOOL’S Caroline (for some reason) annoys me. And…Y&R’S Christine has ALWAYS ANNOYED ME!!!!! Oh…and y-e-p…it TRULY SUCKS that Hunter King is being nominated…AGAIN!!!!! Truly dreadful.

Too bad it won’t be televised. The academy should use periscope. Won’t cost a thing except a phone/tablet battery. Also where is Jason Thompson’s nod?

Mary SF

The quality of the broadcast of this award show has gone down so much over the years that it is probably for the best they don’t air them rather than slap together a half ass effort. I know POP made a valiant effort last year to improve the ceremony for the viewing public, but it still pale in comparison to the ceremonies given during daytime golden days. I hope they don’t decide to live stream the ceremony on the web. I respect those working in daytime but I have zero interest in watching they be drunk and vulgar on stage, like they were a couple years back when there was no network standards holding them accountable.

As for the nominations themselves. I’m not surprised. The only one that have a real issue with is Max Ehrich getting a nomination for Y&R; the guy was on the show maybe a few times last year– during the Scooby Doo murder mystery–I thought there was some rule that you have to be on the show so many hours to be considered for the supporting or leading acting awards? I guess he just squeaked by and it is a real shame because in my mind he doesn’t deserve to be in that category and he has stolen the spot that an actor who actually works in daytime deserves.

Mary SF
Mary SF

Okay, he is in the younger category, not supporting, my bad, but still he was on the show for about a minute last year, doesn’t seem fair–

robert
robert

their is no respectibility left of the daytime emmys. so many people that were more deserving got nothing. a majority of these nominees are people that are rarely seen. i like Tracey Bregman,but getting a lead actress nomination for only appearing in so few episodes doesn’t make much sense. Chuck Pratt who is terrible got a writing nomination. i can’t believe their not gonna air on tv again,do they not remember that online disaster two years ago. i have very little interest in watching this year

Tomas Torquemada

I’m sure the actor who plays Nathan on GH remembers. That was truly awful.

The actors and actresses in the Young and the Restless have dealt with the worst writing in the history of the show.. I hope they all win in their categories for making bad writing look good…

Christie O

I’ve watched all 4 soaps (not much GH tho’) and I feel Days’ actors and actresses were quite slighted! Very disappointing…

So four actresses nominated from DAYS wasn’t enough for you, Christie? Wow.

Tyler or Justin for Lead actor though they may give it to Tony Geary unfortunately
Finola for GH, though Maura West and Kassie Killed last year too
I’m excited about Brooklyn Rae being nominated for emma
Bryan Craig or Tequan for younger Actor but with all the GH noms I wonder if the votes will split for them.
Jacob Young will Probably win lol but Dom did great work last year as well.
Jessica Collins as Avery

I cannot believe that our Emmy’s are not going to be televised! What a load of crap……………………….. Anyway, congratulations to all the nominees.

I don’t think this is fair , so many soap fans look forward to this it should be on TV

Timmm

Ladies and Gentlemen, we just witnessed a virtual crap on daytime! NOT GOING TO BE TELEVISED? You have to be kidding me! This shows that daytime is basically treated like a dishwasher in a five star restaurant! [No offense to dishwashers!] Really, I see CBS being the last network to televise soaps within the next 2-3 years. What the soap industry should do, ALL three networks, have a dinner AFTER the awards, even though we know who won, televise an after party hosted by soap people and have all the winners take the stage and say a couple words, show a scene they were in and then walk off blowing kisses to the fans. Really, the soap community has to do something for themselves because the networks could give a virtual crap!

Rose
Rose

You would think since The Talk promotes anything CBS all of the time, they were already doing the announcements, the “head” lady is married to the head of CBS they could at least have had at least a mini-soap presentation with red carpet day-time event. Could have been fun. I’m sure there could have been some sort of reciprocal arrangement with ABC and NBC…just for the day.

Timmm
Timmm

Rose, always the voice of reason! I like your idea. OR, broadcast the awards right here on Michael’s site. He has all the big soap fans already clicked in place and it gives his site a ton more traffic he may not be getting?

Joe

I’m sure someone there will be running around with their smart phone airing it on Periscope.

It is meaningless when there are four soaps on and each one is nominated in many categories.
No one must have watched last years telecast or they would have found sponsors. Daytime drama is on life support.

Can’t believe Laura Wright wasn’t nominated !!! Was glad to see Kassie DePiava listed, she should win!!!!!

Very upset it will not be televised !!! I’ve been checking over and over and waiting for the announcement of, NOT IF” but “when” it will be televised and on what channel!! With all the senseless reality shows on tv, surely someone could televise the Soap Opera Awards…….just once a year !!!!!

How about a nomination for an actor who played more different roles on one soap in a short time-the WINNER by a landslide-Micheal Easton-he takes home four trophys…lol…ok, Millette Alexander played three on Edge Of Night…on Dark Shadows most of the cast played two or more roles in less than a five year period…lol

It’s nice that online series are now being recognized…and a lot of the nominations for them are very recognizable, like Kathleen Gati & Rick Hearst from GH. I wondered what he’s been up to since Rick fell off of GH’s canvas.

CeeCee

I am satisfied with the female/male lead nominations. My faves were nominated….as were supporting and younger.
One question: why Tyler C?.., oh, ok, three questions: why Bryton ; why Hunter? What is it about these actors performances that makes them unique? I do not see it.
A couple of nominations here and there are baffling, but, oh well !!.
What I don’t understand is why the small kids are lumped in with the younger adults. Just doesn’t make any sense to me. There are enough younger children to hold a category of their own, yes? No? That’s not how it works?
Not televised?!?!?! That stinks. I want to say something else, but I shall refrain. LOL.

I’m guessing Tyler C submitted the scenes after Spencer was burned. He was quite good in those scenes. I actually don’t have too many issues with the noms this year. I’m more happy about the people that had pre-noms that didn’t make the cut like the teen set from Days.

Mr. X

Eric Braeden as Victor Newman killed it this year. Him not being nominated is like the awards show not being televised, an insult to the actor and all soap fans.

He really is the “misunderstood” guy you can have a deserved love/hate relationship with. Well at least Eric is setting himself up for next year with the courtroom/jail scenes.

I despise anyone that even comes inches to Victor’s twisted mentality. But, Timmm….he is admirable as an actor. He is so good….soooooo I-did-a-double-take kind of actor, he leaves me breathless; but, never speechless, LOL…since I have a lot to say.
So, I agree, Timmmy.

Phil

I really think Laura Wright should have been nominated… Tough race this year for lead actress… I would give it to Finola Hughes or Kassie DePaiva though I love Maura West. Days was so good during the anniversary, sucks now, but good then… Why no writing nod? Tyler Christopher us a decent actor, but nothing Emmy worthy IMO! Nic is so boring.

Patrick
Patrick

Tyler Christopher… all of last year… was a phenom… LOVE his bad boy MANLY reel

meh????

not so much this year… not that it’s bad at all… just… long winded

ie: when it was shared… that GH scenes…. are… much longer… more dialogue.. and have more depth and characterization….. ??? hum? REALLY ?

take for example… Wednesday ep (3 – 23)

Carly and Dr. Finn : REALLY ? was it that necessary for Carly to bring Dr. Finn a bottle of champagne… LOL because he has an open CHECK… his stay is indeterminate ? and TWO… because she wanted to prop her hotel from getting another bad rating from the Port Charles mayoral office . Carly and Finn spent so much TIME chewing up scenery for nothing ??? it went nowhere ! it ended up being all about Roxie the Lizard ??? OK that was meaningful… once again the GH production trots out Carly for what? glitz and high yield drama . whatever

same goes for : Hayden and Liz… when Liz overheard Hayden mention Naomi Dreyfus…. Hayden went on and on and on and shot herself in the foot… as in you lose girl…. hayden spouting everything under the sun about … whatever… LOL and told Liz that either she or HER husband will kick Liz and her three boys out of their… Liz isn’t going to let up… get a grip writers… Hayden character is ruined and all the drama that Hayden has… with Liz and Sam… are just that… not moving anything….

Nicholas… : every since the new writers… have started… giving and handing the character of Jason… win after win in any and all dealings between these two… has become yawn and snore… yet again… there goes Nicholas… repeating the same ole stuff… with both Hayden and Laura… about Helena… alright… I get it…
Now… Nicholas is being dumbed down about his wife machinations… REALLY ?

OK GH… you have a huge cast… at this point… may as well trot out the cast as a whole… and just see them all delivering lines

PS: same goes for Franco TELLING anyone who’ll listen… including telling Nina AGAIN .. just as she was about to be in stirrups… that HE IS NOT FATHER material… argh! ??? doesn’t follow… because he sure has a thing for Liz and her family. which is where he needs to be any way….

If this wasn’t so sad it might be funny. No wonder they can’t get sponsorship. With this list I wouldn’t sponsor it myself. I would love to know what” Lauralee Bell, Steve Burton, Bryton James and once again Hunter King” did to even get nominated. This is nothing more than producers giving their pets a prize. Where is Sharon Case or Melissa Clair Egan? We already know the so called winners .

OMG…..I AGREE WITH EVERY WORD YOU SAID!!!!! IT IS NOT FUNNY BUT IT IS SAD WHEN SOME OF THESE PEOLE ARE NOMINATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, my dear Nikki: it’s like this…..
Lauralee Bell was nominated because her character is always angry; because she tell her husband, Paul, how to talk, how to walk etc. nothing impressive about this character except that her name is BELL.
Tracey Bregman (sp) was nominated because her character wants to be twenty again, cheated on her husband; and was such a great mother her son turned to drugs.
Steve Burton was nominated because his character responds to, ‘sit’, ‘fetch’, ‘walk robo-cop’. And, of course, due to his extreme military experience, he became a cop overnight…no Police Academy, and no acting to speak of.
Bryton James was nominated for Devon just being a dufus; being led by his ‘unmentionables’ by the greedy hands of his bedeviled wife, Hilary.
Hunter King was nominated because Summer is the belle, the summer breeze of all soaps put together; past and present. Oh, let’s not forget she’s grandpa’s little cuddly she-cub.

DAYS of OUR Lives : ???? I acknowledge the nominations… as they ; are, in fact… heavy hitters… as in longtime veterans

that being said: DAYS of OUR Lives… Kate Mansi ( 5 years) and Billy Flynn (debuted Sept. 12, 2014)

AS YOU CAN SEE… these two are relative NEWBIES… and are riveting !!!

Abs and Chad have been knocking it out of the park… and giving us nonstop serial recipe of ole… and have been supercoupling their characters

I commend them… and laud their performances

whomever is behind the scenes in the prenom process… NEED to start acknowledging the underlings… newbies… in order to make this genre ??? competitive and worth it’s gold

Chad and Abs have been carrying DAYS through all it’s upheaval

Patrick

Justin Hartley… sure seems like a newbie…

he was on Passions… from 2002-2006

He is so fine… once again… the panel of voters need to acknowledge surefire hit and give out gold to newcomers

I first saw Justin as the Green Arrow on Smallville, a show I really liked. Not so much for his role in a Revenge. It never seemed to go anywhere.

Days is horrific. If there were more than 4 shows on the air, I’m certain they’d have only 1 nomination. That being said, Go Kassie!!!

So many questions…

How did Christian LeBlanc and Tracey E. Bregman snag leading actor and actress noms with that mess of a cancer storyline that got played once a week at most?

How did sainted secret cult baby Dylan who was front and center (and sadly a part of nearly everyone’s storyline) wind up in the supporting actor category?

How did Lauralee Bell garner a best supporting actress nom for what was probably two weeks worth of work when Cricket lost her baby — her only real “storyline” — yet Becky Herbst, Melissa Claire Egan, and Kathleen Gati received nothing for a full year’s worth of screen time? (And yes, I know Melissa Claire Egan is lead material but the Y&R noms seem to operate in reverse.) If there’s no minimum amount of airtime needed to land in this category then Ilene Kristen should’ve been a lock for her role as Delia on GH.

Why can’t the ceremony be shown on an Internet live feed?

Only angry fans are from Days of Our Lives. Shouldn’t they be used to it by now? Days only does well when fans can vote (SoapOpera Digest, PeoplesChoice), but when it comes to Emmys, they get it right. GH & YandR are clearly superior. Always have been, always will be…

Absolutely. Days is subpar to all the legacy soaps cancelled in the last 10 years.

if I had my way… with regard to NBC… serial history Another World… would still be on the air Santa Barbara…. handily… before DAYS… what a “feast” is DAYS on for the legacy supercouple modus operandi I second @emmy emotion… Days of OUR Lives , with post support… has done its level best to retain the Serial recipe of ole… I cant say that , THIS YEAR Days of OUR Lives… has won … and DESERVED best of show … two of the last 3 years… DAYS ; AGAIN: should handily WIN… the accolade of best in show, for: 2015 I don’t know that I can say it , at all… for 2016.. but that’s next year, and theirs still 9 more months to assess; if it goes by calendar year Y&R certainly has the momentum ; for 2016 ? it certainly isn’t working… via: considering POSTS akin word of mouth I think DAYS is lacking… and going the same venue.. if you will… short story arcs… why else would Ava be killed off so soon why else would Andre be taken off canvas readily why else would Ben be returning ? I mean.. it’s like attention span regurge .. it’s disappointing, how much DAYS does not have solid characters to carry…. which pains me I love Steve and Kayla I love Chad and Abs that’s about it… because they took Justin and Adrienne off contract they fired Kassie DePaiva Brady and Theresa… although interesting…. haven’t fully sparked the whole Hernandez clan… didn’t they seem unsure of how they should meld? argh! same goes for .. thank god it’s over… the john and Marlena debacle… oy! to see Deidre Hall… with gun in hand… was too much Paul … is still intriguing stuff Deimos… Vincent Irizarry is TOP DRAW … I wish he was a doctor.. he’d have been excellent in the Salem “General” hospital… alongside Kayla… would have made all the difference in the world the SORAS teen stuff… so mad about most of this… it still smarts and has set in… that I still haven’t got over… Ciera Alice being raped… it has cast such a pall over my viewing pleasure.. the serial murder , all of it, is one thing… but, Ciera… too much to digest and overcome OK ! A part of me… of the SORAS… will miss Chase ! The actress who portrays… Ciera Alice… tho LOVELY to look at… is simply not strong enough to carry such a big story… and it’s huge because… it’s cast a pall over the entire production… what would rectify this ???? rehire Eve and Will… and that means.. ? is Chandler Massey in fact back? and YES .. they are two of MY favorite characters.. but it’s vital to the cast as a whole.. that two core characters .. that they be made returned… the actors CARRIED this show you know…. all fans and posts can repeat their imagination, lament, and quick to anger… I still think.. of… Read more »

I want Tony Geary, Finola Hughes, Nicolas Bechtel and Brooklyn Rae Silzer to win. IF Hunter King wins again I will PUKE!

Nikki

Me two Timmm but remember she has J.F.P. in her large back pocket so get prepared to puke. She shouldn’t even have been nominated but then again she shouldn’t have won twice before. For goodness sake Camryn Grimes, Linsey Godfrey could do circles around her.

Timmm

Oh Nikki, I guess I need to accept your reality that HK has BIG pockets and SOMETHING else that keeps her in the winners circle! Camryn Grimes is the perfect example of who SHOULD win! She is a beautiful, talented wise ASS and I love her! I feel that the computer geek has stolen Mariah’s screen time and her one liners? I dont mind Natalie and I understand her role on the show but where has Kevin and Mariah been? Plus, I feel the girl who plays Natalie should have been a Chloe. She looks like Liz Hendrickson and can act.

What exactly is that comment from the Academy spokesman saying? Is he saying that no network would broadcast it? Or, is he saying that the Academy can’t afford to put it on the air due to lack of corporate sponsorship? Either way, it is a clear sign that the interest in the daytime shows continues to wane.

Regarding the nominees, the list speaks volumes about the (lack) of shows. There are too few shows left to choose from. How in the world did Lauralee Bell even get a nomination? At best, Bell is passable as “Cricket.” No one would ever confuse her for Meryl Streep. After watching Bell on Y&R for almost 30 years, I cannot recall even ONE scene where I thought “She really can act.” Bell is not horrible (probably due simply to having played Cricket for decades); however, nominating her for an acting award is an entirely different matter.

It is a BAD sign when the awards can’t even get on television but even worse, when Bell is nominated (and equally “talented” Amelie Heinle wins twice!), but the very talented Jess Walton, Tricia Cast, and Judith Chapman can’t even get onto one episode of Y&R.

I have to agree with you about Ms. Bell, Barbara. She’s gotten better through the years, and she’s credible in most of her scenes, but it’s hard to view her performances as Emmy worthy. (But on the other hand, she’s no worse than some of the others who have actually won the award in past years, which just points out how ludicrous the Daytime Emmys have become through years of bad management.)

They still (clearly) haven’t solved the problem of how to handle awards for a genre in which most of the people who could be considered as judges haven’t watched the majority of the episodes through the majority of the year. I see a very uneven list, with some real gems and some real clunkers, but I suppose it’s not impossible to imagine any of the nominees having a few shows to offer in which they gave performances that might make them look like Emmy material. Those of us who watch across the year, however, know who really brings it on a daily basis and who just has an occasional good performance.

@Barbara… I posted… about ??? two or three years ago… how stunned I was… that Michelle Stafford… emmy reel consideration…. included… Lauralee Bell… and I posted… at that time… how STUNNED I was… with HER performance…

yes… it was Lauralee Bell… she just nailed it ! that was then… and this past year… I posted below… that I’m certain her screen time… alone.. is not worth consideration… and that she , basically. stole a nominee potential… from Judi Evans… from DAYS

the thing that most fans/posters… will never be able to get over ???? is the body of work… considerations… that fans/posters KNOW…

dang! I love this site… for this reason… long time advocates.. and long attention span… KNOW.. whats going on

LOL… giddy time… every avenue is sourced… behind the scenes in front of the camera… mind recall… and what stirs

it’s passion at its BEST… and I’ll never relent or back down from how much I digress and soapbox

I get angst and bent some.. over … how fans vocalize their dissent over Amelia Heinle…

her first emmy win… was with Billy Miller… he wouldn’t have won without her
her 2nd win… she did ON HER OWN.. without… I saw her reel and knew she deserved to win

she carries the Newman family… god.. I think Victor, Nikki, and Nicholas ARE BORING ! period

it’s time to think outside the box… I DO NOT want Anthony Geary… to swan song… and coast in to town… and FAKE gratitude and … has never given daytime it’s full due…

he deserves his retirement… GH gave him that… how fortunate… how resilient.. GH over the years..

GIVE to the underlings… newbies… reward talent… all around… I’m sick of the long time veteran…

I’ll do it now… !!!! Days of OUR Lives… Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi.. submitted themselves in Best Lead Actor and Best Lead Actress… and … the panel of voters.. SHOUD HAVE KNOWN… that.. they carried DAYS…

These two… deserved nominations… sucks

dang it tho…if audience doesn’t have other things to fall on… and carry … Kassie DePaiva is WORTH , GOLD….

you hear that Ken Corday Productions… ??? rest on your parents legacy much?

I – hope – this show is aired on the internet… dang it! for a 365 day production to be so disregarded.. and lack of respect

no money…

suck it up… corporate entity… leave enough alone… I celebrate the remaining 4

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

Through all of the emotional drama, Banus sustained a level of performance that is no easy feat. That is why Michael Fairman TV names Camila’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”

In the latest can’t miss ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives‘ podcast, two major interviews are the focus of the episode.  First, Camila Banus who had been turning in bravura performances as Gabi, discusses with host. Michael Fairman, her reaction to finding out that Brandon Barash (Stefan) was being killed-off the NBC soap opera, now that Gabi’s love, Stefan is brain-dead.

The duo who became so popular as “Stabi” reveals why Gabi and Stefan’s love/hate relationship worked so well, and those sexed up love scenes.  Later in the interview Camila discusses her recent scenes with Sal Stowers (Lani) where Gabi wants Lani to get down on her knees and beg for forgiveness for Lani shooting Stefan, even though he got in the line of fire to save his mother, Vivian (Robin Strasser).  In addition, Camila talks about working with Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and how Julie hurled some minority slurs at Gabi shortly before her heart-attack.

Then in a very special roundtable chat, Matthew Ashford (Jack) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) chat with Fairman about playing those key scenes where Jack rescues Jennifer from Dr. Shah, hits his head, and then finally his memories come flooding back.   The duo known as ‘JnJ” talk about their storied on-screen history, and tease what may happen in the next leg in their storylines.
