45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards Drama Performer Pre-Nominations Announced!

We are off to the races for the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with the announcement today of the Daytime Drama Performer Pre-Nominations from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS). “We are excited to officially launch the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with this list of extremely talented actors and actresses. Our 45th Anniversary show promises to be a star-studded gala filled with lots of surprises,” said David Michaels, Senior Vice President of the Daytime Emmy Awards and Executive Producer.

Here’s how the Pre-Noms were determined:  An online judging ballot containing all entrants in each of four performer categories (Lead Actor and Actress and Supporting Actor and Actress) was sent to all registered, eligible peer judges. The ballot contained a randomized order of performers in each category, regardless of their show affiliation. Judges were required to view clips online containing the work of each performer entry before selecting their top 10 performer choices in each category.  Please note that there are 11 Lead Actresses due to exact ties in the voting.   Ballots were submitted directly to Lutz & Carr, Inc., an independent accounting firm, who tabulated the results. The candidates below who received the highest number of votes now advance to the blue ribbon screening round, scheduled to begin on February 22, 2018, which will determine both nominees and recipients. Please note that this release also contains the names of the entrants for the Younger Actor and Actress categories, who will proceed directly to the Blue Ribbon Round.

Look for the final nominations to be announced on Wednesday, March 21, 2017, live on CBS’s The Talk.   The Daytime Emmys will be held on Sunday, April 29th.

Congratulations to all the Lead and Supporting Actors moving on to the next round, and best of luck to all and the Younger Actors in the competition as well.   After the jump, check out the Pre-Noms going for gold in the 45th Annual competition.

Why oh Why R sssssooooooo many bad actors and actresses being
nominated ❓❓❓❓❓❓❓❓Poor acting doesn’t warrant an EMMY.
That’s the problem w/ no longer having a dozen soap operas on the air,
The academy will nominate just about anybody… Hopefully they’ll triple

GH needs more supporting actresses!!!
Also hayley Erin should be in that category not the kids one. Ugh

Steve
Guest
Steve

Haley Erin qualifies as Younger Actress since she’s 25 or under.

Her acting has greatly improved in her time on GH. Her role was greatly diminished when Robert Palmer Watkins was let go.

Eden McCoy and Chloe Lanier should take two spots. Both drove story and are good actresses. Whether you like Nelle or not, CL plays her well.

Annalee

I love them all! I didn’t know that 25 was the magic number. Thanks for clarifying!

Wow Michael, not even a “Pre-Nom” for Genie Francis in the Supporting category…
Guess I will have to go put on my “shocked” look…

Steve
Guest
Steve

Laura wasn’t given a lot to do last year. She went to Turkey with Tracy, struggled with Spencer and finally at the end of the year married Kevin and started a mayoral campaign. Genie’s a great actress, but the material wasn’t there for the Supporting category.

That LiLo got the only GH nom in Supporting Actress says a lot. Nancy Grahn probably should’ve submitted in supporting. Rebecca Budig could’ve filled a spot as well.

Omar
Guest

Genie Francis gave one of the best performances in daytime when Spencer was “kidnapped”..Most of performers in the pre-nominations are submitted with just one or two scene reels! There is just no respect to this great actress by TPTB!!

Buddy Lee, you are so right!! No respect for this legend by her own show, smh!!!

Is one of the surprises that the show will be televised???

Why isn’t Rena Sofer nominated????

Why is Paige Searcy nominated? It’s been ages since she was last on Days.

I’m so torn between Eileen and Marla for supporting, but I think I have to go with Eileen. Just loved her as Susan.

Ok I’m going to be the first to vote. #1 Best lead actress–Sharon Case as Sharon Newman Y & R. Best lead actor #2 Scott Clifton as Liam Spencer B & B—Outstanding supporting actress Marla Adams as Dina Mergeron Y & R—Outstanding supporting actor Steve Burton as Jason Morgan G.H.—Outstanding younger actress Hayley Erin as Kiki Jerome as Outstanding younger actor Tristan Leabu as Reed Hellstrom Y & R.

Celia
Guest

I second thst, Nikki….except for B&B…don’t watch it…
I must say, though, that Casey Moss brought me to my knees ( I was so moved, I cried) with his “suicide” performance.
Not too many appreciate Reed, but he is acting the perfect teen who has been ‘bound’ by his mother …..can’t really blame Victoria…considering she was trying her best without Reed’s father as backup.
Wow!!! Kelly Monaco’s dress looks so much better in black. I have a similar number in cranberry red….I like the black better. She looks beautiful.

He really is, such a hot guy. I’m surprised he’s under 25 years old, he’s been on the show for many years now. But he definitely deserves it for his scenes at Christmas.

Yes, he has, Jimmy, Casey was unbelievable…..that makes sense….Billy Flynn makes sense, Peter Bergman makes sense….but Eric Martsolf, Galen Gering do not, to me. I do not like Jack, but Peter is outstanding…….Love Rafe, but the character is too sedate and the acting not desrving of an …with Hope? Even worse. Brady? I have no words….I am sick of this character…..never changing. He snaps out of his stupor with drugs and alcohol for a NY minute, then climbs back into his playpen, like the baby he is.

My favorites are Eileen Davidson (either role, well-deserved), Nancy Lee Grahn, and Maura West. I also love, love, love, James Patrick Stuart as Valentin Cassadine. Of course I love Gina Tognoni and Wally Kurth, and a few others, just not sure what their “big story” or scene was this past year.. Melissa Claire Egan, seriously? I cringe every time that Chelsea and Nick are forced together. They have zero chemistry and Chelsea is as annoying as insipid Lulu (GH) and annoying Abby (YR), IMO. The same goes for Haley Erin as Kiki Jerome. #fastforward I wish that the event was… Read more »

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Dmr, I agree about Melissa Claire. A talented actress trapped in a dullsville storyline. Plus, how much dramatic story did she have this year? I hardly think that ooohing and aaahing over a half-naked Nick takes much acting. Just saying. Eileen had a great year, and Maura West should just be redubbed Maura “Best”.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Great description, Soaphound. Love Melissa, not Chelsea—add ‘dollsville’ to ‘dullsville’.
That’s how I see her represented : a doll. Melissa, as seen on AMC, has so much more to offer other than being Nick’s playmate.

Hi Soaphound! I hope all is well! Over the years, I have visited this site and commented only on occasion, although lately I have been more active, given my disdain regarding the Genie Francis decision. I have saved links to several threads in which I participate. I was just going through them and noticed a very nice reply you gave to me in 2016 in a thread about GH Sonny (I am no fan of that character, to say the least…). You stated in part: “I’ve been watching GH on & off since the 70s. This current stint of 10… Read more »

Soaphound, thank you for your most gracious and thoughtful reply to me below. I value your insight. I wholeheartedly agree with you about Billy Miller. Your assessment of his contributions to GH the last 2 years are correct. He is undoubtedly a great actor who flexibly rode this roller-coaster nobly. I also saw his great work on Y&R. The choices of characters with whom you are tired are clearly warranted. I echo you on all. And I do understand your interest in Julian. Glad you feel the same way about Genie Francis. I think it’s clear that GH is losing… Read more »

Awwwww, Jamesj75. I just read your “note” to Soaphound” above and your last line …”…just as I miss the glory days of Jamesj75.”

Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind…”

And…I’m baaaaaaack! No warning, probably a good thing… Soaphoud, thanks so much for your reply! I appreciate your sentiments on nostalgia, which we share. I also appreciate our friend, @rebecca1, for, among other things, her injection of that great quote by Wordsworth! I think you’ve listed a few remarkable movies and music talent. I like them as well. And to this day, for me, my favorite singer of all time is the late Karen Carpenter. Carpenters’ music, for me, was incredible, and it was Karen’s angelic, clear, emoting voice that was the highlight — and always will be so. With… Read more »

@dmr. I totally agree with your assessment . They should have a category for the boringiest (that a word?) Couple, actor, SL, etc.

Steve
Guest
Steve

As for GH performers: Lead Actor Easton is probably viewed as more Supporting. That said, he was in a lot of story last year, so this might be correct category this year. Benard rightfully overlooked. Miller came alive the last 3 months once Burton returned. Lead Actress Grahn was a Lead for first half, then Supporting. Based on screen time, Wright is a lead, but did Carly really drive story in 2017? Supporting Actor In his last two weeks on the show, Montgomery shone more than his previous 3 years. GH could get 3 nominations here as JPS and WK… Read more »

I think Laura Wright is just written into a lot of scenes without driving a lot of story. I am sick to death of the “hell yeah” and the “hell no” ad lib lines during her scenes. She sounds like a teenager.

Maybe it comes from dating a much younger guy in real life.

@blake

Wes is 7 years younger than Laura Wright. Don’t know if that qualifies as “much”.

Tell me about it, dmr!!!! Love Laura, sick of Carly!!
To reply to Steve’s comment:..,
Yes, 7 years, in the grand scheme of things, is nothing.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but Laura’s love, Wes, does not look his age….a very youthful appearance. I must say, though, I appreciate the fact that Laura is ‘natural’ and not knife-happy, compared to those whose faces look like they’ve been stung by bees.

Hello James…so good to see your posts. And I’m glad you asked, because I’m in a quandary about GH. The only reason I’ve stuck the past 2 years is my love for Billy Miller. He is the best Billy Abbott that ever will be and he worked so hard to make Jason palatable and interesting. And though the actors have made a difficult situation at least partially successful, I believe, like many, that all knees bend (inexplicably) to Steve Burton and that Billy was shafted. Until…he reminded us of what a great actor, and apparently a real gentlemanly professional, he… Read more »

Oh, Jamesj75, where to begin. You remind me of myself in regard to the glory days past. Unlike some, I LOVE nostalgia and don’t find anything wrong with it. Like our dear Celia quoted from Wordsworth, I do find strength in what remains because we ARE our experiences. I grew up in the late 1960s/early 70s when everything good still seemed possible. The singer/songwriter era was my life..I just hung on the records of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Carly Simon…these records spoke to me. They were MY feelings and someone else understood and felt the same. And guess what….I still… Read more »

Hi, Matthew, I have really begun to appreciate Steve his subtle nuances, Matthew. He has that quiet, decisive manner about him, almost methodical; as if by rote…yet, I cannot condone a criminal. But, this is about talent, not what a character is…. Everyone will get a good laugh over this, but; I nominate Kathleen Gati—-how does someone who shows a face ( pretty at that) with tears running down her cheeks, yet expressing no emotion except for an ” Oh, well”-kind of countenance, such as Kelly Monaco, get a nomination and not this “never-fails-to-surprise-me” thespian of the acting ‘elite’, does… Read more »

Marla seriously GREAT!!! Camryn’s coming out and when she
confronted (Tessa) on how she felt….was most probably the best acting
I’ve seen by her in forever. These two women (Marla & Camryn) truly
deserve EMMY’S Call it a tie at the podium.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hey, Fanny,
Neil giving Hilary a baby didn’t even cross my mind….but, I like it. After Hilary and Devon had that exchange ( about her wanting a baby and looking for a sperm donor), it felt like Devon was going to offer his services tout-de-suite. LOL.
I definitely agree with your choices. Marla is a seosoned thespian and never disappoints….but, Mariah just broke my heart by ‘exposing’ herself…..her heart was naked for everyone to see….her performance was both torturous and awesome to watch. It was such effortless acting, I felt she bared her soul to me alone….so credible!!

soapqueenforever
Guest
soapqueenforever

And don’t forget the episode when she showed Noah her diary with tears glistening in her eyes. I was crying right along with her. I think Tessa got what she deserved. Even though he sometimes annoys me, I hope for Mariah’s sake that he makes amends with her

Fanny
Guest
Fanny

@CeeCee, Morning Sweets…
What I meant to say was …I wanted Neil back on
screen ASAP, Devon running the show without him
feels like there’s a void in the room.. And truthfully
Neil & Ashley would make a smart, beautiful pairing,
together they’d make heads turn. Hillary and Devon
belong to one another…Devon never fell out of love
with her, she’ll get her baby with him.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hi, my lady, Fanny,
I agree, Devon is deeply in love with Hilary….so obvious. That’s why I said he seemed to want to jump right into ‘helping’ her with her having-a-baby-plight.
As I mentioned somewhere else, I bet Mishael is pregnant in real life; ergo, the urgency of having a baby.
Neil and Ashley? Hmmmm. Never thought about it. Were they involved before? I don’t remember. I think he and Vicoria ( Heather Tom) were involved at one point….

@Shay.
Exactly, Shay,
I don’t know….perhaps, it’s just moi? But, I don’t get that good, fuzzy feeling when I see Alexis…as I do with Genie….and Finola is just exciting to watch….both have that intangible IT factor….
Alexis has come a long way for me….I ‘d like her to stay that way without Julian’s dark presence….
At the same time, as good as an actress Nancy is……her delivery is not natural; one can see she’s ‘acting’……Finola and Genie are born to this…it’s an innate gift, and it comes out in their delivery.
So, it is stunning to me!!!!!

How in the world is Bryton James even considered on a pre-nomination list? The guy is not a horrible actor but no one will ever confuse him for Denzel Washington. Maybe I’m impartial, I’ve always thought James’ character, Devon, and Cane Ashby were uninteresting and, to keep both actors employed in those roles, was a complete waste of scarce money that could go to better actors and screen time that could be given to other characters. But I digress.

I really hope that Marla Adams ultimately wins in her category.

I know , right ? lets at least see Devon… spending his 2 billion dollars

doing something with personality.

he’s tapped in as filler to fill the void of person(s) of color. and that’s bad… because I do not see one shred of capability and reason enough to keep him? what for ?

as i’m going to start .. there are so many … so many other men who would love to get their chops on and MOVE that much farther. Devon is boring and dull

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS ; GH. Laura Wright, the one that needs to be shot with a tranquillizer gun simply because she is the screaming banshee and that deserves an award. No way for Kelly Monaco.. She is a Professional Cryer… Every time she has one of her nose dripping crying jags, some yell she needs an Emmy, for best sniffling, not gonna happen, hopefully. ……………………….

Hi Violet Lemm… I was having a problem with comment placement, too. However, it only happened when I was using my Samsung tablet! Sometimes from my cell phone. However, seems to be fine when responding from my desktop. So, THAT’S been strange! Comments would just seem to pick a random spot. At least yours landed in the right thread! 😉 Bascially, just reply under the actual reply box (where you literally see the word “reply” in black under a comment,( regardless of how many people posted under it) of the person you want to respond to.

Oh my!!! The world must be shifting on it’s axis because I … GASP …..agree with you, man! Lol. Maybe not for ultimately who will win each category, but definitely the descriptive language you used on each one were spot on and hilarious!!! Lol. Your descriptions of Sam and Carly? PERFECTION! Lol!! Marla Adams YES. Chloe Lanier? YES! I don’t know what Nelle’s endgame or throughline, nor why she is so frickin weird out of the blue, lol, but I love her!!

Agreed, su….also, Kelly Monaco did step up a bit, but, not enough to deserve anything. I feel the same way about Nancy Grahn….other than her A-grade performance of her bout with alcoholism, she is a no go, in my humble opinion. Not even an A+ For me.
You don’t watch Days, but, Judi Evans and Eileen Davidson are so unique because they both play dual characters on the same show—it cannot be so simple to switch personalities ….it takes work and talent…not an easy feat.
Mary Beth is another exceptional contender.

@CeeCee.. Kelly/Sam only came alive when OJ/ Steve Burton was in a scene
with her….otherwise she’s one note like Maurice B,Chad D, Billy M, and so many others.
Their not breathing LIFE into their characters…R they so blasé that they no longer
care….it comes across that WAYYYYYYYY!!! So comfortable in this role, been here
forever ….taking it for granted instead of bringing it.

@Fanny.
Hey, again, Fanny,
Oh, I am right up there with you. I have only seen Sam show any signs od life, interest or a sense of anything, twice….maybe three times. She is not fun….ever!! Hardly ever smiles—Ahh, Sam, morose is thy name!
One note is right….but, it takes an entire concerto to even teach her that one ‘note’.
Billy M did well with Liz…unfortunately, now, the character can’t seem to exist without Sam’s demoralizing presence.
Billy Abbott is forever gone.

@CeeCee….I’m not all that bothered by Kelly’s pre-nom because it will probably end up being just that….I would be surprised if she made it into the final round given her often too-subtle expressions of emotion vs. some of the other powerhouse players she is up against….hence this little pat on the back for her past year’s efforts really hurts no one. But the overrated NLG kudos are truly unwarranted…for what? A sloshed Alexis drowning her self-pitying sorrows in the bottom of a bottle whilst trotting about town in all of her condescending glory telling everyone how to live when she… Read more »

Hi, Shay,
Believe me, as I stated on the other site, Genie Francis is like no other—-whatever character dhe plays…..she pours her heart and soul into said character. And, her smile brought dundhinr….there is no comparison.
Nancy Grahn, as far as I sm concerned, is not in the same league as Finola and Genie….
Nancy plsyed the best drunk ever….fighting her demons and alll. But, that record has been played so much, the chips and scrstches make it impossible to plsy it….

It is so baffling to me, not only that Finola has not been given the honor of a nomination…but, Ari Zucker ( DOOL), as well.
Are you familiar with her acting? She has a killer talent, Shay….and gorgeous, to boot. I am not in these people’s heads….therefore, I hope it’s not politics.

Chloe Lanier can win for cutest nose! Check that sucker out…total button nose! LOL… …..But, she sheds more tears in a nano second…and definitely would beat out Kelly Monaco/Sam for best watershedder!

Camryn Grimes – from child star to full on womanhood… Mariah imbues her character with more acting skill than the genre itself. she’s that captivating… doesn’t steal the show… but leaves an indelible mark. she’s solid . 3. Max Shippee – Graham. theres a very disarming display of character(s) going on here. that any one would have wanted him redeemable…… Read more »

Hi, Soapqueen,
It seems that Lauren fought every woman over any man….LOL. She’s another who slept with every guy, available or not….or so I heard….
I think ( as per my Gran) Lauren wrecked Jack (Terry Lester) and Patty’s marriage? Correct me if I’m wrong…. Can’t be sure. My grandmother is 77, with a sharp wit and memory. However, this was almost forty years ago….and Lauren still looks the same. LOL.
Not only that, but Lauren was a bully….always persecuting and ridiculing Traci about her weight….who then became addicted to diet pills.

Happy with most of the Days nominations. Soooo glad that Eileen Davidson is in it for Best Supporting Actress for playing Susan Banks. I really hope she wins it, she deserves it just for that one episode of Susan’s breakdown! Glad to see the men of Days nominated like the actors who play JJ, Tripp, Joey, Brady, Chad and Eric. I could see JJ taking the Best Younger Actor for his Christmas scenes. Sooo glad to see Judi Evans nominated, she should get it just for playing Bonnie and Adrienne, who are polar opposites. She kills it as Bonnie! Glad… Read more »

This was the best year daytime has had in several years. It seems every show had a standout storyline that featured great talent. As always, certain actors did not get acknowledged or didn’t submit their work for the awards. There are some actors that seem to not be in the correct category. I believe some actors are more “Supporting” rather than “Lead,” and vice versa. As I have stated before, I am a faithful “DOOL” and “B&B” watcher. But I am aware of the great talent and storylines on “Y&R” and “GH.” Laura Wright, Gina Tognoni and Eileen Davidson are… Read more »

I’d like to add my choices for several categories… Outstanding lead actress…Nancy Grahn, or But then that’s because Laura does such a good job. Outstanding lead actor…John McCook..loved seeing him break out of the his regular calm Eric role when discovering Quinn had had a thing with Ridge. And his followup performances as to whether he would forgive. Outstanding supporting actress…Tough between Marla and Camryn, but was so impressed on how Marla seamlessly switched personalities during Dina’s episodes. And as i’ve said before, a lovely, accomplished actress. She gets my vote. Outstanding supporting actor…I’m even surprising myself, but picking Steve… Read more »

I like how she has handled some of the challenges she has been up against. Except maybe Victor, but at least she draws a line at the Ranch sometimes.

For kicks I’ve spent the last two nights watching YouTube clips of GH from 1998. Seach for “GH alan’s addiction.” 73 clips of Stuart Damon giving it all he’s got in a terrific story line that weaves in so many other characters. It was his only Emmy and he deserved every golden inch of it. The writing is something else — you really cared about the characters. … This is the GH that I miss.

DAYS Cady McClain & Rob Scott Wilson Talk Being Recasts, All My Children Reboot, Future of Cin & Jennifer’s Bitch-Slap

Current Days of our Lives and former All My Children reboot stars, Cady McClain (Jennifer, Days, Ex-Dixie, AMC) and Rob Scott Wilson (Ben, Days, Ex-Pete AMC) chat with Michael Fairman in an enlightening and exclusive conversation for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.

McClain, who recently took over the role of Days of our Lives beloved heroine Jennifer Horton from mainstay Melissa Reeves (who chose to stay with her family in Nashville during Covid-19 thus forcing the series to recast the role for now) talks about stepping into the key part of the Salem canvas, plus the recent Jennifer/Kate fight over Jack (Matthew Ashford), and how the legacy series is coping with production during Covid-19.

Cady is no stranger to be a recast.  She was the second actress to play Dixie on ABC’s All My Children, as well as the second actress to play Rosanna on As the World Turns, and she had previously taken over the role of Kelly Andrews on The Young and the Restless.

Rob, talks about landing the role of Ben and being a recast, and in an emotional moment, reveals how he credits the opportunity to the late producer, Lisa de Cazotte. Wilson also shares his hopes for his Salem alter-ego who is struggling to move on with his life after the supposed death of his wife, Ciara.

The actor also opens up on if DAYS decided to recast the role of Ciara, since Victoria Konefal is not presently with the NBC soap full-time, how he would feel about it and thus the future of Cin.

Photo: JPI

Both Cady and Rob first appeared together in Prospect Park’s online revival of All My Children. In this interview, they discuss how they had high hopes for the continuation of the series, how it ultimately fizzled, and what it was like to be a part of the then, groundbreaking first, for a daytime drama series along with One Life to Live.

Photo: TOLN

In addition, Cady gives the viewer insight on how she runs lines for both DAYS and GH at home with her real-life husband, Jon Lindstrom (Kevin and Ryan, GH), while Rob talks about his recent storyline where Ben was kidnapped and tortured by a vengeful Eve (Kassie DePavia) and much more.

Check out the full chat with Cady and Rob below. Then weigh-in: How would you feel if there was a Ciara recast? What are your hopes for the holidays for Jennifer? What did you think of the stories shared by Cady and Rob in the interview?

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
