If Casey Moss loses this it would be a crime

Tristan impressed me as soon as he arrived. I wish him well.

Plain and simple, while all actors were great in these clips, Casey Moss stole it. That young man’s acting chops are natural and pure. He is stunning as JJ Devereaux. No shade to any one else involved in this process but Casey deserves the prize for his EXCELLENT work.

Casey should win but his reel was poorly assembled. It’s slow and plodding and doesn’t include his best scenes from the shooting story. Lucas Adams’ reel is much more captivating. I think if Casey wins it will be because of the nature of the story they were telling about white on black copy shooting.

Younger actor, younger…
there are 2 that I’d consider Younger;
Tristan Lake Leabu (Reed), and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake).

The other 3 are not young as in young..
I’d date them ..

The age limit for the category is 26, su. (Or it used to be. I think it still is.)

Now, maybe that’s the wrong age limit, but the Daytime Emmys have never been very logical. . . .

I am pulling for Casey Moss. I think he is terrific playing all the facets of JJ. The suicide episode was riveting. All of his work during the Theo shooting story was outstanding. Good luck Casey!!!!!!!!

Gotta go with Casey Moss here. JJ’s been through a lot of shit in the relatively short time he’s been in Salem, and he usually knocks it out of the park, especially this recent storyline with Theo’s shooting. (and the after effects of that whole mess – Lani’s pregnancy and all that – might already have next year’s nomination wrapped up for him)

Gotta say that Casey Moss was riveting in his portrayal of someone contemplating suicide.

Lucas Adams lights up the screen in every scene, even if I don’t agree with some of the decisions that he has been forced to show his character making.

As a side-note, I guess it’s only fair for Chandler Massey to leave some of these awards for other actors occasionally. 😉 (I’m also wondering what the heck happened to the chemistry that Chandler clearly showed in every scene with every other actor during his previous enlistment.)

Hudsdon West makes me wish they had a Child Category. He is SO good, and very reminiscent of the young guy who played Brandon on Santa Barbara whowon an Emmy in this category. These young categories, with only four soaps, are so weird because they are filled with young people, some of whom would never be nominated in a million years if the playing field wasnt so small. I REALLY like Tristan as Reed. Although he hasn’t had major story, he just has that IT factor that separates young actors from future stars. Casey had some very challenging material and… Read more »

“… This category is entirely incomplete without Kyle who played Theo on Days. ” absolutely – the “firing” of Kyle.. because of an immature leak and/or mistake… was simply that I’ve posted – NO ONE CARES what leaked… WE, THE AUDIENCE, just want, GOOD story. that has been asked and answered… DAYS is ON top. simply put… our mindset, in this industry…. just want the show to go on. Firing Kyle Pettis , is WRONG. he is an excellent actor NBC / Sony / DOOL – have their standards ? LOL sigh Kyle was not even in the pre-nom list.… Read more »

I’m really only familiar with Casey Moss (JJ) and Hudson West (Jake)-both are great. Casey Moss has definitely grown as an actor; and Hudson West has more talent in his pinky than most of the adult actors on the show. Best of luck.

Hi, dmr, I wish ‘they’ would have a separate category for children actors/actresses. Choosing between an adult, albeit a young adult, and a child is sort of discombobulating….does not jive. Little Hudson is a natural….quite a dilemma. This child is on his way to greatness, as an actor, if he sticks to it. He’s a baby….the world is open to him and his to take…..so many roads. Yes, my friend, you are sooo right; Hudson does put some adult actors to shame. He never steps over his lines…..never looks ‘staged’ or prompted….his lines flow naturally and flawlessly. I’m for either,… Read more »

It’s Casey Moss’s to lose. He was brilliant in that Christmas episode, and IMO, his reel didn’t even do his entire performance justice (because of all the splicing). If he submitted full episodes like they used to do, the magnitude and the impact would have been even more compelling.

Still it doesn’t take away from what a phenomenal fourth quarter Casey Moss had in 2017.

Casey Moss, for sure. Not only has the actor come a long way personally, but his acting has improved 100%!

lil’ Jake , broke me, when he first heard that Drew was not his father. in that moment he didn’t want Jason to be. every since that moment… before and after

GH can drop that sugary sweet syrupy run. OK Jake we get it.

I’ll take James Nigbor for shade and because he’s cuter.

Well, young Mr. West is outstanding, especially in his scenes with Billy Miller (Drew), but to me, this is Casey Moss’ award by a long shot. He’s gone from teen eye candy to an accomplished actor who can handle heavy material. The others are good also, but the story and the gravitas brought to it should bring Casey the prize.

I agree, Soaphound. Casey was so moving during the whole Leo story and his suicide attempt. But Hudson is so darn cute (as is the actor who plays Danny. Love these kids!)

Hi, Soaphound, Oh, yeah….Casey for the award!! Do you remember how we were soooo ‘iffy’ about him when he first stepped onto the Days’ stage? Well. He certainly made a rewarding and literal transformation as an actor and as an upstanding Salem citizen. His talent actually ‘grew’ right before our eyes. I must admit I wasn’t really into JJ ( but always appreciated Casey—gorgeous!!)……and, I thought he would always remain the brat; the angry teen; the trouble-maker….but, wow!! What a jump and leap into maturity he made. I think Paige had much to do with it as JJ came into… Read more »

Lucas Adams – “Tripp” son of Steve Patch Johnson… step-mom “Kayla Kayla Kayla” I love this young man foray in to acting… he’s doing a bang up job. his job is only going to get that much better… in scenes with HOT off the track, nuErica Kane herself, Cierra Alice LIVES in scenes with dad Steve… battling his blindness in scenes with Kayla – this one I want … because they have wild chemistry as mother and son… who are off the tracks and finding their way back. with dad beset with going blind… this will UNITE Mary Beth and… Read more »

Taken from Wiki : Moss began his acting career on May 3, 2013, by joining the NBC soap opera, Days of Our Lives. from the get go he turned – it was he that kept his family forefront: mom Jenny Bear, and sis Abs. he was electric with Kassie DePaiva : what ? daresay you ? this young buck with megawatt Kassie DePaiva . go their… it was that HOT. JJ is now back in the drivers seat… Thanks to , Ron Carlivati. he’s a riveting act. let’s call him James Dean. that sensitive portrayal of , shock and hurt,… Read more »

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
