    Originally, I thought SSH was going to win (since it’s been almost 40 years since her last nomination). However, since she and Bill are getting lifetime achievement awards, the favorite should be Marla Adams.

      You mean Y&R, not GH, right?

    I think it’s Marla for the win but Camryn, Elizabeth and Mishael all have a shot as well.

    If Marla Adams doesn’t win, she was robbed.

    I wanted Susan’s reel to be stronger. It seemed like an odd combination of material. I was really rooting for her.

    i wish Susan Seaforth would win…she never did win an emmy but i think it will go to Marla Adams

      Kind of ironic, these two women being in the running, with Dina always bad mouthing Lauren’s mother, played by SSH. She was a shrew, for sure. My vote goes to Marla Adams, whom I’ve loved since Secret Storm, the young , vivacious Belle.

    This category is hard. But with her strong and real performance, no one but Camryn Grimes should walk away with this award. She is one of the most amazing actresses in the daytime field. She has comic timing, dramatic prowess and sincerity. No one compares. I loved all the performances nominated but Camryn just takes it away. C’mon give the girl an award already.

    Marla Adams by far has been wonderful in her role.
    Misheal has been very good as well, second favorite after Marla.

    This category is tough because it is a total battle of sentimental favourites versus current and trendy favourites. Lets rule out the Bolr and Beautiful chick right away. Sorry. No Emmy there. Camryn Grimes, a past Emmy winner, is always great, but her story was kind of weak this year. Hilary on Y and R…is SO reminiscent of Brenda Dickson as young Jill ,, she does deseve an Emmy. I think this competition though is down to the old timers, and it will be between Susan and Marla. The story of Davids death on Days however, was told too fast, her reaction was way too quick and over the top. I think Marla Adams had the kind of star turn that wins Emmy awards.

    Camryn is also fabulous.

    Boy what a tough choice each performer had a great reel of material for consideration. I think it will be one of the ladies from Y&R, and I would be happy with any of them— but out of the four of them I think Mishael had the strongest reel showcasing a variety of emotions- although Marla’s work was stellar, I believe her best work came after the stuff on her reel and is to come, so I will be rooting for her next year.

    Camryn or Marla.

    Marla adams did not have the best tape,but overall her performances throughout the year and her tenure from 83-86 gives her this award.

    Marla Adams , deserves the award, Susan does too, either will win, CG, should be the winner, despite the backlash the show ,writers got for the direction of the storyline…….she is awesome.

    I’ll go with Marla as well, with Camryn and Mishael close seconds. Hendrickson was good also, but JMW doesn’t even belong here. Y&R’s Amelia Heinle or Melissa Ordway (Victoria & Abby, respectively) are far more accomplished actresses.

    I am so hoping for Marla Adams to win. Love Camryn Grimes and Mishael Morgan as well, but this is pretty much Marla’s last shot at the trophy and her decades of solid performances in daytime are so very deserving of acknowledgement and praise.

    I think it is going to come down to Marla Adams or Camryn Grimes. Unfortunately, the writing for both has been so uneven that I would just give it to Elizabeth Hendrickson who at least had an arc under Sally Sussman’s tenure.

    Marla has made the most of the material she has been given but sadly Dina’s Alzheimer’s storyline has been pretty lackluster with her character either being played for laughs or used to commit various crimes to provide something to watch other than local billionaires trying to buy a park, Devon’s off-camera search for the next American Idol, Scott’s total lack of chemistry with both Sharon and Abby, or Billy and Phyllis’ forced “comedic” antics.

    Camryn Grimes’ coming out scene was outstanding…but then the show immediately dropped the storyline and is now hinting that Mariah is probably bi-sexual at most so it really negates the performance for me. I’ve read that the show caved to negative viewers’ complaints about the story and if that’s true then they shouldn’t have attempted to tell it in the first place. Writers come and go but viewers have very long memories and I find it very unbelievable that Mariah caught “the gays” for a few months and then got “all better.”

    Based on the reels alone, this is a tossup for Marla Adams (Dina, Y&R) and Camryn Grimes (Mariah, Y&R). Their reels are the strongest in the category. However, had Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, B&B) been able to nominate her scenes where Liam confronted her about sleeping with Bill and the baby potentially being his, then she would’ve been another contender. However, the other reels lack something in them.

    Camryn Grimes–From submissions. She broke my heart

    If only I liked the character of Julie! I would hand her the Emmy though because clearly she is doing the job, but Marla Adams would be my pick! I don’t even like or watch Y&R!

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

DAYS Elani Wedding (Photos): What Did You Think Of The Nuptials?

This week on Days of our Lives saw the first African-American couple to be married on-screen in the 54-year history of Days of our Lives.  Now while Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) tried before in a previous ceremony, this one did the job … they are now officially husband and wife!

The ceremony was attended by Lani’s dad, Abe Reynolds (James Reynolds), her mother Tamara Price (Marily McCoo), Billy Davis Jr.  as a former FBI mentor to Eli, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) – it was her restaurant after all and she is Eli’s grandmother.  Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) presided over the ceremony.

There were some unwelcome guests at the ceremony as well; leading the bride to question, are we doomed?  Why does this keep happening to us everytime we tried to get hitch!

However, fate was on Lani and Eli’s side this day, as even Gabi (Camila Banus) with her antics, and a shocking arrival from Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel), couldn’t rain on this day.  Vivian even tried to shoot the bride, but thanks to Rafe (Galen Gering) saving the day and armed with news that her son Stefan (Brandon Barash) could be alive; he informs Viv firmly that she would be killing someone for the wrong reason, even though Vivian is in disbelief that her son is alive.  Next, she is whisked out of the ceremony.

Lani still feeling rattled by all the wedding interruptus gets a sign she should marry the man she loves; when her mother, who needed to go lie down earlier, as she was feeling faint, was able to show back up just in time to restart the wedding.


During the ceremony, Eli mentions the loss of little David Abraham and the struggles they went through, but how in the end it brought then closer together.  After the rings are exchanged and they are pronounced man and wife, the newlyweds “jump the broom” a wonderful tradition and a symbol of African-American heritage, where the sweeping of the broom signifies sweeping away all the bad energy.  After they sweep the broom, Elani jumps over it.

In a behind-the-scenes of the wedding segment released this week on the DOOL app, Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey talk about the inclusion of the ‘jump the broom’ moment in the episode, and how they suggested the idea to DAYS Co-EP Albert Alaar, and how  it was written into the episode.

So, what did you think of Lani and Eli’s wedding? Did you enjoy it? Let us know via the comment section below, but first check out this wedding photo gallery of the big day!
