43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination Performer Voting Has Begun!

Courtesy/NATAS

The  race is on!  NATAS has opened the voting in the Pre-Nomination round for this year’s 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.   Voting began on Monday, January 11th and will continue through till January 25th.  The results of which of your favorite daytime drama performers move on to the Blue-Ribbon round will be announced by the academy on January 27th.  This year, there are a record number of entries across all categories, which is great news for the annual competition.

And now some of the rules:  Ten performers will move forward to the Blue-Ribbon round, unless their is a tie.  However, NATAS  is aiming for ten in every category.  Those categories include: Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress and Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series.  For the Pre-Nom round, actors were allowed to choose material from up to 2 episodes not to exceed 4 minutes for judging.

The Pre-Nom Emmy system will not allow the voters to submit their choices  unless they have viewed all the entries within a category.  Actors can vote for themselves only in the Pre-Nom round.

Those entered in the Younger Actor and Actress, Guest performer, and Actors and Actress in a Digital Drama Series will move forward to the Blue-Ribbon round automatically.  Those entered in Guest Performance in a Drama Series must have appeared in a limited number of episodes, and a must be a character that was created in 2015.   Therefore, someone who returned to the series such as GH’s Jonathan Jackson (Lucky), would not be allowed in the category as a “Guest” performer.

One of the exciting major changes this year for the Blue-Ribbon round of voting is that actors can submit appearances from two episodes not to exceed 20 minutes in their reel, thus giving them the opportunity to show more variations to the character they play, and their talent.   Those who go on to the Blue-Ribbon round from the Guest Performer, or Digital Drama Series actors will submit only one episode for contention.

On-Air On-Soaps spoke exclusively with David Michaels, Senior VP of The Daytime Emmy Awards and Events for NATAS who noted: “Since I am the only one that has seen the Pre-Noms, I can tell you that the judges have a real treat in store, because the work is outstanding.  The support from the daytime drama world is overwhelming.  It would be a much shorter answer if you asked who did not enter as opposed to who did.  It’s a very exciting time, and NATAS is looking to unveiling who is the running come January 27th.”

So, who do you hope gets a Pre-Nom from your favorite daytime dramas in the top acting categories? What do you think of some of the rules and a few of the changes this year?   Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Elizabeth

Elizabeth

Rebecca Herbst did an outstanding job in 2015 portraying Elizabeth Webber on GH. Her character’s story lines ranged from giddy romance with Billy Miller as amnesiac Jake, through the shock of finding out his true identity as Jason, and the subsequent months of guilt-ridden angst while she kept the secret and built a family, culminating in the train-wreck wedding at which he was revealed, And of course the break off of the relationship. Rebecca played all of the beats. She is a consummate professional who deserves recognition for her amazing acting skills.

Rebecca should win an Emmy every year just for being there—she is always so good to watch.

I don’t like the Elizabeth character but, Rebecca has done a fine job this year. For this award, her body of work is irrelevant. It boils down to the reel she submits to the judges. Fortunately, she has some good ones to choose so let’s hope she gets help picking the right one to make her a winner.

Timmm
Guest

She is a good actress but she only has a small chance of winning. There are bigger names in the female category that will prevail. Maybe they wouldnt deserve to win over Rebecca but their names roll off tongues quicker than Rebecca’s. Sucks but true.

Becky should get the first annual “They Trashed My Character But I Still Sold It” Emmy, for Best Actress in a Character Assassination storyline used to prop a couple with no chemistry (Sam and Ja-borg).

I also gotta say, the scenes with KMc and Ja-borg on the bridge were really special. Kim should get a special “They Begged Me to Try to Get Emotion out of Ja-borg and I Did” Emmy for exceptional service to the daytime industry under trying circumstances.

I am excited to see the 10 in each category. This year has seen some unbelievable performances on “DOOL” and “GH.” I hope we do not have any headscratchers like in previous years. I love Peggy McCay (Caroline, DOOL), but she did not deserve to be in Lead Actress last year. It seems that if you are driving a storyline, you should not be able to submit yourself in the Supporting Actor/Actress category. With that said, I am hoping to see Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi (Chad and Abigail) in the Lead Actor/Actress. I would like to see the following:… Read more »

There were so many outstanding performances in 2015 it would be nearly impossible for me to pick a personal favorite— I say this every year, but the truth is the real winners are the viewers who get to be entertained by so many talented actors, a true embarrassment of riches— good luck to all who submitted a reel— let the games begin and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Man, did Rebecca Herbst blow me away this year. She hit every note of that storyline, and did not miss an opportunity to add subtext in subtle and meaningful ways. I hated the story, but I really got a kick out of watching her depth and range.
Finola Hughes is also an absolute powerhouse of an actress, and I’m sure she had many very compelling scenes to submit. Loved them both this year!

Tristan

Finola Hughes and Becky Herbst: these are the two women from GH I also hope receive nominations. Whatever is put before them as story, they make wholly believable. Sentimental hope for Laura Wright as Lena Spencer. She was phenomenal in that performance. And a shout-out to darling Brooklyn Rae Silzer for her astonishingly real performance in the episode where Sam and Patrick broke up. Gut wrenching!

My preferences for GH are Becky Herbst and Finola Hughes for their work all year, though I am really sentimental over Laura Wright’s one-off as the tragic Lena Spencer. Tony Smoney…I see that award going to Peter Reckell. Even though I do not watch Days the buzz has been relentlessly strong for the power of his performance. He is the sentimental favorite. Let’s not forget our adorable Brooklyn Rae Silzer! Phenomenal and gut wrenching in the Sam/Pat break-up episode.

DAYS got this!!! DAYS stories, actors and actresses were all amazing in 2015. GH was and is still disappointing. GH’s stories are inconsistent and their actors/actresses though have been great years ago did not have the wow factor for 2015.

Of course, I agree with you, Timmm. Only Rebecca H. deserves recognition from that list. Kelly Monaco? Yes, she should get an Emmy for falling so gracefully (for the umpteenth time) into Billy’s arms after her continuous tripping. Bryan Craig for the worst rendition of bipolar disorder; and Maurice for stuttering and mumbling through his lines. As I said, only Kassie has touched deep, human and raw emotion. Perhaps we should rewind…..go back to those episodes when Paige died. Nothing even comes close to that pain. It is called human struggle. Y&R presented us with a tear-jerker today.

HILARIOUS Timmm. I was just scrolling thru here & thought to myself nobody from Y&R deserves to be nominated this year. BORING, so repetitive, so predictable at every turn. No big surprises-just same old, same old. Now, I watch it every day (although I cheated last week one day & read the synopsis on Soap Central-didn’t miss a damn thing by not tuning in) I love all soaps & will never quit watching any of them but jeez, Y&R needs an overhaul like nobody’s business, anyone agree with me?

Elpa

Yes y&tr needs an overhaul. I watch it religiously and so have a finger on the pulse. One of the worst performances was Adam’s return. Until very recently, when Victor assured he’d be safe from prison, for a year nearly every sentence this new Adam uttered was followed by a question. In his faux desperation instead of acting the emotion he used questions to portray it. “you know?” “you hear?” “you see?” “oh how?” “oh why?” I was exhausted watching this over-acting. At first I found it unbelievable that it occurred so often, but when it became regular I had… Read more »

Its not about having fans its about awarding the best actor or actress. She doesnt qualify. BUT, as you pointed out, she has won before AND thats why I take ALL these award shows with a grain of salt! I GUARANTEE you if the fans voted she would not win. BUT, if your a fan of her work, thats okay to.

Shelley
Guest
Shelley

Because some how YOU think you’re an expert? She’s a celebrated, 2 time Emmy winner with a lead role on daytime’s #1 drama, a recurring role on a prime time show and just had a lead role in a movie. Do you think YOUR opinion is more accurate than that of daytime casting directors, prime time casting directors and big screen directors?

She’s OBVIOUSLY good enough to be loved and supported by professionals in HER industry. Perhaps you should take THAT into consideration.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

You are full of anger. You are on the wrong website dear. We all share opinions here and many times we do not agree, but we dont lash out and strongly suggest what one SHOULD do. A lot of fans on this site dont like Hunter King. Its a fact if you follow the posts day in and day out. But thats beside the point, I stated at the end of my last reply to you that if you are a fan of Hunter’s, and obviously you are, thats okay. Have a better day, Timmm.

Although I didn’t like the previous writers vision for Eve, Kassie’s performances blew me away, especially under the new writers. Eve’s grief for her murdered daughter was a great showcase for Kassie!

Agreed. Although I think Mz. D was the perfect choice for the Eve recast, she was just saddled with a story line that was…well…poorly written and just plain creepy. Unfortunately the new writing team, under pressure of time restraint and tasked with a quick fix, simply chose to get rid of anyone involved in unpopular story lines and unpopular characters. If you noticed every one who was removed from the canvas in Days Neck Tie Killer story were all characters the viewers were very VERY vocal about hating.

I love the fact that the Academy FINALLY is allowing a reel that contains more than one episode. This will allow the award and nominations, somewhat, to be based on sustained performance, and discount episodes that have basically been designed “to win the Emmy”. All four soaps have been at times unwatchable this year, but all four have also been incredible; so it looks like an even race this year. As for the actors, I seem to agree with most of the comments on this thread, “Days of Our Lives” has had some jaw dropping performances, and should get a… Read more »

Days of our Lives Returns To Production After Temporary Halt Amid COVID-19

UPDATED:  According to Deadline  the cast and crew of NBC’s Days of our Lives will actually be returning tomorrow, October 20th to begin taping ahead of schedule after a positive Covid-19 test shut production down originally scheduled for two weeks.

The outlet cited, “Following a thorough investigation including contact tracing, quarantines, testing, and a deep cleaning of the studio, the health and safety experts at Days of our Lives have determined that it was safe to return to production before the end of the two-week period. As a result, the show will be back on set tomorrow Oct 20.”

The word of the early return initially got out Monday, although at that time unconfirmed by the show, apparently, via a posting by Lauren Koslow on her Instagram account where she is pictured in a Kate Roberts outfit in her dressing room.

Koslow shared: “Stepping into Monday in alice + olivia black velvet,” She also tagged the post #dressingroomselfie and the words. “Stay strong.”

She also added a quote from poet Maya Angelou: “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

So, happy to hear it seems like DAYS is back … once again? Comment below!

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
