Hey, su0000, can anyone believe this–I agree with you for a THIRD TIME on this blog–must be a charm–lol!

With one caveat–not because of the writing–but because she is Dee Wallace!

Agree 100% Su, Dee Wallace for the win! She was fantastic in her short stint on GH. It was a shame they made the decision to kill off Patricia so quickly. I understand it was necessary for the story they wanted to tell, shoe horning “Val Chops” as Shay calls her into the show, lol. But I thought there was so much untapped potential story there if Patricia had lived.

Thanks for the shoutout, Dan! Alas, I’m not allowed to use my favorite character monikers anymore, but I’m so glad they’ve not been completely forgotten!…LOL. As for Dee Wallace, you are so right! She was phenomenal as Patricia and richly deserves the Emmy for her far-too-brief portrayal, even if I haven’t forgiven her character for foisting her obstinate daughter on the canvas to nearly destroy the Falconeri’s marriage. ‘Twould have been far better to have kept her longer to explore the Spencer family history, than to leave Val orphaned(?), bereft and lusting after her cousin’s husband!

for ALL the hoopla still being felt… resonating….

LOL… will he or won’t he …. show up… and “supplant” with, his 9th Oscar

Anthony Geary… COULD very well – be – the MOST CELEBRATED ACTOR

any way: for ALL the oohing and aweing of the 50th black and white gala premiere… meh?

Dee Wallace Stone was the most interesting part

Patrick

ie: I read , either here…. or elsewhere…

“…Among performers, Cloris Leachman is the all-time champ with eight prime-time Emmy Awards. ”

*Anthony Geary has 8 and is nominated for an all time record, 9th

Sentimental choice …Dee Wallace. But Obba and Anna were excellent.

I’m a little confused on the eligibility for this category. Anna Maria and Obba have been in several episodes for B&B and I would classify them as recurring rather than guest stars. Anyone know what the rules are for this category? Thanks.

Rose

Mo… Good question. I would also include Ray Wise as Ian Ward in Y&R. How would he fit?

Patrick

there was a three way tie in this category , last year

LOL imagine that

GUEST ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES
Sally Kellerman (ex-Constance, Y&R)
Donna Mills (ex-Madeline, GH) — WINNER (tie)
Elena Tovar (Rosalie, GH)
Fred Willard (ex-John, B&B) — WINNER (tie)
Ray Wise (ex-Ian, Y&R) — WINNER (tie)

LOL

whew! can WE ALL just look the othe way… blinders on….

and minimally have a two wy tie…. for BEST LEAD ACTRESS

Mary Beth Evans, Kayla; DAYS
Kassie DePiava, ex-Eve; DAYS

or heck…. 3 way tie

add in Finola Hughes, Anna; GH

sounds good to me

Kim B

They are now recurring. During 2015 they were guest stars.

Nikki

Dee Wallace is by far the best. I thought a very close second was Obba Babatunde. All of them we’re good but I thought these two we’re the best.

RICKIE
RICKIE

Being completely objective here (I don’t watch any of the surviving soaps regularly): It’s definitely Obba Babatunde. It’s great to see Frank Runyeon again (loved him as Steve Andropolous on “As the World Turns”). And I adore Anna Maria Horsford (not only did I love her on “Amen” and “The Wayans Brothers,” but also as Holly Thorpe’s cellmate Clara Jones on “Guiding Light” in the late 1970s). She’s my sentimental favorite. But Babatunde’s performance towers above the rest. Dee Wallace was wooden, and I never took anything from “Days of Our Lives” seriously since the 1970s.

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.”
