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.

Oh my goodness, I SO hope Shenell wins! She did a fantastic job her entire tenure on OLTL – but last year especially so!

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.

Lillian

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.

Iakovos

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

Christy
Christy

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

During the event, Soap Opera Digest’s Stephanie Sloane, led viewers through a hilarious opening segment, which featured a walk through the sets with various cast members doing some very familiar soap tropes from: shirtless hunks, to bitch-slaps, a twist on a soapy monologue, and more.

Then, DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday presided over the annual cake-cutting ceremony, honoring the cast and the crew for their accomplishments of keeping the show strong and continuing its legacy for 53 years and counting.

Several cast members took part in a special tribute honoring the late Peggy McCay (Caroline Brady), which was an emotional high point of the event. Eric Martsolf led several key members of the cast who worked with Peggy, as they shared remembrances of this one-of-a-kind actress.   Later, Galen Gering, Lauren Koslow, Nadia Bjorlin and Eric Martsolf did a little “Show and Tell” preview of some of their videos inside the new DOOL app.

Martha Madison returned to the backstage celebration where cast and crew took photos against the step and repeat for the series 53rd anniversary and the launch of the DOOL app.  Madison chatted with several cast and producers who stopped by including returning fan favorite, Matt Ashford (Jack Deveraux).

The facebook live event concluded when Stephanie Sloane walked into the celebration with the cast as they gave a big “Thank you” to the fans for keeping the show on the air, and telling them to check out the new DOOL app for all the exclusive, fun content now and in the days and months ahead.
