Shenell Edmonds from OLTL should win her category hands down….One, she’s the only one that had an on-going storyline, Two she was great with the story that was giving to her…..And Three, it’s about time OLTL win something.

Why is Tatyana even nominated? She had NO story and brought NOTHING to the show!!! She wins every year for some unexplained reason. I like her but let’s get real people, stop wasting an award on someone who has not growth potential as an actor!

Angell Conwell is the winner for me. She didn’t have a main storyline but her court scenes made me watch and whenever she graced the screen she commands attention. Glad she’s in the running.

Reynolds deserves it. He had some great scenes around the time of Lexie’s death, and it was heartbreaking to watch that storyline.

Leslie played by Angell Conwell from The Young and The Restless would get my vote. Love her acting and enjoy reading all of her interviews. And Kristoff should win his category.

All deserving actors but many in small or little-seen roles. It shows that there is a lack of diversity on our daytime dramas.

while I liked Valdez’s acting, I’d have to vote for Shenell, too! She did a great job and her character/storyline was much longer and more involved.

Why the hell isnt Renee Jones nominated for Actress??? She did a phenominal job as Lexie this year. I agree about Tatyana Ali. She had zero storyline, yet she’s nominated??? BS

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
