Reign Edwards (Nicole; B&B). She rocked those scenes.

I watched these twice now and Chloe Lanier is the only one who I believe is deserving of the Emmy; her reel made me understand Nelle and was full of fire! I was surprised by how much I disliked Reign Edwards’s reel: I found it one-note, lakcing in variety and vocal power, underwhelming. Cait Fairbanks is overshadowed by the brilliance of Camryn Grimes but had some nice moments. I found Hayley Erin’s reel the most disjointed and disappointing; I love her but not this reel. Olivia Rose Keegan surprised me in a good way: didn’t think I would like it. Still don’t get why it’s backwards but whatever! I think Chloe Lanier will win and should win.

Cait.

Although, she plays a highly unlikeable character, she does it well-Chloe Lanier (Nelle, GH) gets my vote. She is diabolical. I’ve never been a fan of Kiki Jerome (either actress); and I don’t know why Tessa from Y/R was even nominated. She is not a contract player and was involved in one of the worst storylines of the year, IMO.
Nelle is cold, cruel, and nasty-all of which comes from hurt and shame. Chloe is a great actress. It’s just too bad that she’s been written into a corner, and most fans of the show would rather the character leave Port Charles.

Agreed, dmr. It takes talent AND courage to play such a diabolical character and do it so well. Cait is a lovely presence but it’s way too soon for Emmy consideration. Hayley had some good moments but I see her turn coming perhaps next year with this harassment story unfolding. So for me it’s Chloe all the way.

I agree, Chloe Lanier plays Nelle great!

Absolutely, Chloe Lanier, dmr…

Chloe lanier..

Absolutely, Jimh! Chloe has shown phenomenal acting in roles on GH not just the once, but twice! First, as the lovely young Patricia, then as the far more dastardly Nelle. To show such a range in portraying these vastly different sort of females just goes to demonstrate how very talented Chloe is….she totally deserves the Emmy!

Rumor is she is Nina’s daughter..ugh!

Jimh

Nina seems to be in everbodys story…Maxi needs her mom(i need more Feliia)not her sister-in-law…i hope Nelle keeps gaslighting Carly and she ends up next to Heather Webber whom i sorely miss…as for Sonny Of A (bleep) im so tired of him too that i only watch a few times a week and mainly when Nelle is on…i wish she was Heather’s granddaughter instead !!!

Phyllis Fontaine DeMarco

She is a good actress, but she is certainly hindered by the poor material she has been given. Since it seems she is going to be a permanent resident in Port Charles, I wish she would be allowed to turn it up several notches. I like Nina. Make Nelle her daughter.

Shay
Shay

UGH, indeed, Jimh!!!! The notion that Nina has a long-lost child needs to be dead and buried once and for all…I’m so tired of her endless babylust….especially now that she seems to be coveting the thought of Nathan’s unborn offspring…run Maxie run!!!!! If this character is so bound and determined to be a mother, then she should be sent off the GH canvas to Western Europe, China or Africa in order to buy herself an infant via the international adoption market….

That still isnt far enough…

Hayley Erin (Kiki, GH) …..

None of these woman I like Marci Miller but then again what do I know.

You know a lot because Marci is nominated for LEAD actress, these ladies are for YOUNGER actress– a separate category

Well I hope she wins the lead actress.I kind of figured it was a different category.I just wanted to say she deserves something.Don’t you think that Marci is doing a great job with her playing three roles?That must take a lot out of her.Got to give her a lot of credit for her work.

As much as I hate Nelle, Chloe Lanier should/will win. Because, well, clearly she’s doing a phenomenal job in the role.

Have to go with Nelle here. Probably good that she’s nominated this year, since I suspect she’s not going to live long enough to be nominated in 2019.

Guess she’ll have to win awards in Hell when that happens, because there’s zero chance she will be heading “upstairs”

HAVE TO GO WITH CHLOE LANIER …DO NOT LIKE THE STORYLINE BUT SHE IS A TERRIFIC CONVINCING ACTRESS…..

It’s bizarre the way this works some years. There were a couple of years where I thought Hayley Erin did good work on GH, such as the aftermath of the death of Silas (Michael Easton character #2 of 3 on GH, lol), and then 2016 with Morgan’s death, and she didn’t get nominated. This year, her stuff isn’t that great to me, and she got nominated. Go figure. Still like her on the show.

I’ll have to echo what some others have said, can’t stand the character of Nelle, but that’s because Chloe Lanier does an exceptional job playing the bitch, for lack of a better word. Every year when commenting on these things, I always include the caveat that I’m biased towards GH, because it’s the only soap I watch. But I think this is Chloe’s to win.

Reign Edwards should win, but it will probably go to Chloe

Loved Haley Erin from the first moment she took over the role of Kiki. Chloe Lanier is very good but she needs to cut back on the tears; I don’t think there’s one scene she’s played where she hasn’t called on her eyes to do the talking. She’s got happy tears, sad tears, angry tears, vengeful tears. I’m getting all teary just thinking about it!

But, still, she’s good at being bad. Chloe for the win.

Chloe Lamier is extremely convincing as the scheming Nelle! Reign Edwards reel is flat no real acting range ! Haley was good but Chloe Should get this Emmy !

None of the performances really did much for me (due in large part to the writing) but I’m guessing Chloe Lanier will win.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lives Are Forever Changed When Kristen and Xander’s Plans Blow Up In Pivotal Episode

In an explosive and can’t miss episode of Days of our Lives, all roads lead to a warehouse that appears to be filled with presumed dead bodies of former Salemites!  Behind the experiments and illegal activities going on in this creepy place are Xander (Paul Telfer) and Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk)!  This takes us to the action where Nicole (Arianne Zucker), who has been forced under Xander’s thumb, knocks him out and takes the recording of her confession to murdering Deimos, as she desperately tries to find Eric (Greg Vaughan), who has been tied up to a chair in another part of the warehouse thanks to Kristen!

Nicole is traumatized with baby Holly in tow as she comes upon a confusing maze of locked door with the initials VA, AD, AV, SD, ED, JD, and WR on them.  Had you figured out who they all stand for???   Brady (Eric Martsolf) hears Nicole calling out for Eric and is now locked in the E.D. marked room thanks to Sami (Alison Sweeney), who is searching for EJ!  Brady asks Nicole to let him out, she says “no” and not until she finds Eric!

Kristen, who has Eric hostage, tells him that she and Xander need to move precious cargo in the warehouse and the building has been compromised! Sami finds her brother with Kristen! She demands to know where EJ is and attacks Kristen.  Cut to another shocker! Dr. Rolf (William Utay) is alive and prepares a large syringe for his mystery patient.  He explains to the man that the formula was far from perfected back then when they tried to use it, so he understands how apprehensive the patient would be trying it again. After injecting the patient, who we believe could be EJ, Rolf tells him Samantha Brady is here in the warehouse!  The man jumps up on the hearing of Sami’s name and grabs Rolf, but then a Bunsen burner is knocked over by accident and Rolf yells, “Fire!”  Then, the burner explodes in the man’s face like a fireball!

Elsewhere, Xander comes in and finds the Sami/Eric/Kristen situation as sounds of explosions rock the warehouse and everyone starts screaming. Xander and Kristen run out, Sami frees Eric, then rushes out to mind the man she believes is EJ.  But then, rubble falls upon Nicole and she is separated from Eric and Brady.  She fits Holly fits through a hole and Brady runs out of the building with the little girl leaving star-crossed loves Eric and Nicole holding hands through the rubble.

Kristen finds Brady outside with Holly and begs him to come with her.  She wants him back and he tells her no way, and she tells him he will be sorry for this! She runs back inside the burning building.  Sami goes into the lab and calls EJ’s name, but she sees Dr. Rolf and he runs out.  Sami gets the burned man out of the blazing inferno!

Back inside, Nicole begs Eric to watch over Holly, as she is not going to make it out of the fire.  Brady runs back in to save his brother, and hits him with a crowbar, when he won’t leave Nicole and could die himself. A gut-wrenched Nicole knows she is left to die with no way out!  Outside the warehouse, Eric comes to and loses it when he realizes Brady saved him and left Nicole inside!  Next, the warehouse door explodes!  Brady and Eric can’t get back in to save Nicole.

Inside, as the warehouse burns around her, Kristen says she is not afraid, and turns and reveals the Phoenix tattoo on her back! Looks like she is burning herself in the fire only to rise again!

But that’s not all! Rex has returned to Salem in the form of Kyle Lowder making his debut as Kate and Roman’s son. You remember the Gemini Twins???  During Lowder’s first scenes back in Salem (he previously played Brady Black), Ron Carlivati and the DAYS writing team took the opportunity to give us some quickie Rex history including that: sister Cassie was stuck in a piñata and left for dead once, and how he and Cassie fell out of the sky!  Now in present day, Rex tells Roman (Josh Taylor) he is engaged and before he can tell his dad her name, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) walks in with Baby Bonnie.  Rex holds the baby, not knowing that elsewhere Mimi Lockhart (Farah Fath) is confessing to Belle (Martha Madison) that Rex is the true bio-dad of Baby Bonnie!
