Well .. hmmm ?

Jessica Collins/Avery / Y&R..
was very good..

My bitching of it-
Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series;
Not one from GH.. GH has a very powerful cast, the best of best..
I would have thought someone from GH would have been nominated..

Just on of other reasons I have always seen the daytime emmy’s as a waste of time, bunk..




Jessica Collins gets my vote!


This category is probably the worst of them all. The ladies selected by the members of the academy who vote were so poorly chosen. Of the candidates I’m forced to deal with I will have to go with Melissa Reeves. This was the scene we had been waiting for — for MONTHS — and she delivered. The anger, the disgust and the pain she felt were perfectly delivered. Melissa Reeves has coasted through this role for such a long time that she has become routine but here she shone like a diamond. All the other ladies over reached. Lauralee Bell? She is such a horrible actress. She knows one emotion. Anger. That’s it. In a love scene, she’s scowling. In a hospital room she’s scowling. In a country club she’s scowling. Just bad acting all the way around. Lindsay Godfrey was okay but the writing on B&B kills the emotion. They don’t let the impact hit cause they are always REACHING for a manipulated emotion. Peggy McCay? I seriously throw my hands up on this lady. She is awful. Her ridiculous story and her canned emotions. She is just painful to watch. How she gets nominated is a mystery. There are so many other actresses worthy of that nomination and they were ignored. I don’t know maybe perhaps a check is being written? I just don’t get it. Jessica Collins is a solid actress. She did a great job as Avery on Y&R but I am not feeling her. So with some hesitation and confusion I give it to Melissa Reeves. The only sincerely acted delivery. On to the main categories.


Mateo : Thank you for couldn’t have said it better myself”

“… Melissa Reeves has COASTED through this role for such a long time that she has become routine but here she shone like a diamond. ”

I’ve posted before… that she owes her resurgence… to Kassie DePiava

i’ll leave well enough alone… i’m hoping… for a good return… to see if ; Melissa Reeves can truly deliver… ie: her dependence on prescription PAIN killers should be any time now… just how hopped shes spinning and twirling


RIGHT ON, MATEO!!!!! To me, this category itself (for this time around, anyway) is such an EMBARRASSMENT!!!!!! Y-U-C-K!!!!!



These are mostly worthy nominees, though Ms. Bell is a monotonous actress for me. Jessica Collins, however, was absolutely stunning this year, particularly in her scenes with Scott Elrod (Joe Clark…another good character treated poorly like Austin & Courtney, et al). When she confronted him with her accusations, it was literally breathtaking. The Emmy would be a great send off gift for her…and might even leave open a return?

I said Melissa Reeves who did an outstanding job in these scenes!

Often it is the subject matter that wins the category and for that reason alone I think Ms. Bell might have a shot. Also her scene partner was strong which helps when viewing reels. If I was handing out the hardware I would give it to LG—scenes with a good mixture of tears, anger, vulnerability usually do well at awards time. Missy went the angry route, but I fear those over the top moments of her wrestling Eve might come off as too soapy for the Emmy Award. Of course sometimes the Academy members go sentimental and if they do Peggy has an outside chance. Jessica’s the dark horse, she is no longer on her soap and that might hurt her chances, but if the reel is strong enough that will not stop her from taking the category. So I don’t know who will get the award, but I do know I did enjoy all those performances when aired and seeing them again now.


Plain and simple “Linsey Godfrey. All the others we’re ok but she came through with fling colors. I don’t understand how they pick, who does the picking or how it is judged but Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) from the Y & R should have had her reel put in this as Justin’s was where she confronts Justin Hartley in Victor’s office. Also was this not around the same time Camryn Grimes (Mariah) was trying to drive Sharon crazy? Where is her reel? Or Sharon Case (Sharon Newman) during the time she was talking at the graveyard? Really this is why I feel people don’t take these awards seriously. JMO.


“Oh, that Jennie Bear”

I read that endearment… on…. I tried to research it…

I’m assuming… perhaps that was Jack Pet Name for his nearest and dearest

Oh it just tore at me some… how the disdain for this storyline… did not let up

“I was enthralled” and yes… it’s because… it’s the first time… I really GOT and became fascinated… with Ms. Kassie DePaiva… and i’ll go their… what’s not to love about Casey Moss

Kudos to the lovely True O’Brian… as Paige Donovan !

I am just delighted… that all those associated with this storyline… ARE NOMINATED

Jennie Bear gets a hug !

so… this story ROARED in the finale… and culminated in tour de force ACTING CHOPS REAL

Congrats to Melissa Reeves… she should be hopped up more than we know…

LOL… haven’t seen Jennifer in quite awhile…


Melissa Reeves for the win!! The character of Jennifer has been treated horribly by the past few regimes, with writers who did not understand or know how to write for the character. I loved her rage, and her disgust, and her hurt. When she smacked Eve, it was just great soap. I hope she wins, as she deserves it, and it would be a nice reward for her 32 years in daytime. I was also impressed with Lauralee’s reel. It was actually very sad, and stirred my emotions, which Y and R rarely does. Jessica is a pleasant actress, but Avery was an ill defined character that never really found her niche on the show. Lindsey is a capable actress, I just don’t get the character’s throughline or motivation, so it’s hard to invest in her. And Peggy, poor Peggy…I think that’s enough said.


Melissa Reeves has my vote too! This was one of the most memorable scenes of the year and expectations were high. She surpassed them! Hope she wins.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.
