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
