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.

Without a doubt
Marla Adams – Dina GH ..
She is real, the real deal ..
Marla is absolutely phenomenal in every single scene ..

BRAVA!! Marla ..

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

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.

Marla!

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.

Phyllis Fontaine DeMarco

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!

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!
