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 of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
