Earlier on Wednesday, the Pre-Nominations were announced for the 43rd annual Daytime Emmy Awards in the daytime drama performer categories.  Daytime fans and pundits quickly reacted to the omission of The Bold and the Beautiful’s Karla Mosley, who was front and center in 2015 in soaps most daring and socially relevant storyline.

On The Bold and the Beautiful, Karla plays Maya Avant who viewers learned last year was a trans woman, originally born as “Myron”.  Mosley’s performance was heralded throughout many twist and turns of Maya’s storyline.  However, not enough of the Emmy voters chose Karla’s work to pass her through to the blue ribbon round of voting in the Lead Actress catetory Emmy Pre-Nom reel’s are up to 4 minutes in length and can conclude scenes from up to two episodes, so as they say it’s all in the reel and the reaction of her peers that vote.

The talented actress, who many thought was shoo-in for a Lead Actress final slot, shared her reaction when throughout the day people commmented on social media about her being off the final ballot.

Karla related via Twitter, “I am so humbled – to tears, really – by the beautiful outpouring of love from fans (& even and some friendly foes) today. #HeartFull”

So, what do you think about Karla Mosley being out of the running in the Lead Actress field? What did you think about her note via social media to her fans and colleagues following the outpouring of support shown to her?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I think it sucks. She is an excellent actress. I am very unhappy. Looks like I will be boycotting this award show as well. In fact, the last few years of the daytime emmys have been terrible at best. I will still watch my soaps but long for the day when the fans get to select the best

I agree the fans should be the ones to vote and nominate, I’m sure there would be a way different outcome.
I never liked Maya when she was trying to get Rick away from Caroline. I do have to admit she is a good actress.

The Bold and The Beautiful created a great character with amazing writing and Karla Mosley brought Maya to life in her emotions and depth she added to the character. It is a subject which is more and more in the news. I am stunned Karla did not get the nod. I would have bet my last cent on her receiving a nomination. Boo to the members who did not put her on the pre-ballot. I know Karla must be hurt but as always, she is handling this with dignity and respect for her profession. Know that we love you and… Read more »

Maya is such an UNLIKABLE character that I’m not surprised at her omission. In fact, the entire storyline, including the introduction of Maya’s family, has not been a riveting storyline for me.
NOTE…this is MY opinion, so if you don’t agree, that’s your right, as this is mine.
The whole transgender story has been nothing but a ratings ploy, and not that well told. If they had REALLY wanted to do it right, they would have used an ACTUAL transgender woman to tell the story. I doubt very much if “Rick” would have so willingly gone to bed with a true-to-life tran.

The character being unlikable is irrelevant. It’s about Karla Mosley’s performance as Maya, the character.

The performance as the maya character was not strong enough to win her a nomination.

Agree with you 100% – if everyone on the show is so proud of this transgender story, why didn’t they get a real transgender to play the part? They instead used the trans story to try and whitewash the months of awful behavior and bullying Maya (and Rick) did.

The actor who plays Rick has said how he is grateful and proud to be part of this ‘love story’, but would he be saying that if he had to do kissing scenes and love scenes with an actual trans person instead of a woman?

The bottom line is what did Tracy Bergman and Eileen Davidson do this last year to put them in Lead Actress. JFP up to her old nauseating tricks. Here is how it should have went down for Lead Actress Kristian Alsfonso Karla Mosley Becky Herbst Sharon Case Melody Thomas Scott. Enough said !

Melody Thomas is nominated every year, no matter if she had a decent storyline or not. Why is that? I like her portrayal as Nikki Newman, but I think a nomination EVERY YEAR is way past ridiculous, when an actress of Karla Mosley’s talent is snubbed. What’s wrong, Nominating Committee? Don’t have the guts to nominate THE daytime drama performance of the year? Cowards.

Just to be clear, I was agreeing with SZima! Melody is an amazing actress and she is portrayed age appropriately & also has her hair and clothes appropriate for her age & status unlike someone who shall remain nameless & emmy nom-less Karla did not make anyone feel for her or shed a tear. She did not hit the mark of emmy worthy-ness. The script she was given had major holes and left people mad as all get out. The s/l was horrible. An embarrassment to the transgender community. Had it been written correctly & portrayed correctly, the former abreva… Read more »

I expected Karla to be nominated. Some of the nominees barely had airtime and some no real story at all. The SL was ground-breaking and her performance was moving.

I do not believe anyone was ”snubbed”
They simply didn’t like whoever and liked whomever more..
That is what happens when people judge people, it gets personal to their tastes/likes what they see as good, is personal choice ..

Karla was given a very sensitive role to play and she played it to the hilt. She should be very proud of her role portrayal. Unfortunately, the popularity of transgender storylines are not daytime mainstream as of yet. They really have only been popular on non mainstream broadcasting channels. Kudo’s to her for her brilliant work on a sensitive subject. It hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Sheryl

The fact that Maya is such a controversial character – fans either LOVE or HATE her – and Karla has helmed B&B throughout most of 2015, it is downright shocking that she did not receive a nod for her work. It’s the first time I have watched a black actress lead on a soap opera and she couldn’t be acknowledged? Yes, I know that Debbie Morgan was nominated for Lead Actress but that was before my time. This snub by the daytime emmy committee is VERY TELLING and communicates a very loud and clear message to minority women.

I don’t know why everything needs to be made into a race-based issue. Maybe the nominating committee simply didn’t think her material was a good as some of the other material submitted.

Karla is a great actress but the fact that Maya is such a unlikable character is probably why she wasn’t nominated had Maya been a nicer person maybe it would have made a difference. The transgender sl wasn’t appealing to many viewers it was a ratings ploy by Bell jumping on the Bruce Jenner bandwagon . If Bell wanted to educate viewers about transgenders then he should have done a documentary and aired in on one of the educational channels and should have used a real transgender instead of Karla who’s character is already the most despised on daytime television.

I think it was a combination of race and storyline. If they give her a nom that means the producers might go searching for more black actresses or more transgender people. These people who vote have been in the business many, many years and know exactly what they’re doing. Take a look at who was nominated and tell me that half of those women belong there and then tell me why? The same meaningless storylines involving those nominated are told over and over again but something FRESH and NEW and delivered so professionally and talented by Karla Mosley is overlooked.… Read more »

Haters can say what they want (you know who you are) but Karla Mosley turned out multiple emmys reels during this storyline. Reality check to people who say she wasn’t snubbed well she most definitely was snubbed. Karla was incredible in that storyline even people who are not fans of the characters realise that the Maya storyline was the best Storyline of 2015. This was the one actress that pretty much everyone that was tuned into the daytime world believed would get a nomination at least so the fact that she couldn’t even get a pre-nomination is disgusting. However Karla… Read more »

I thought the race for Best Actress was going to be between Karla Mosley and my pick for Best Actress of 2015 Kassie DePaiva (Eve, Days Of Our Lives). I would have preferred for both to be nominated on the final ballot and may the best (according to the BRP) win. I’m not sure why the panel didn’t like her work? Too subtle? Too different? It’s a real mystery! I do wish Mary Beth Evans, Tracey E. Bregman and Eileen Davidson had all submitted in the Supporting Actress category where they belong, and that would have opened up a slot… Read more »

No, a different actress was Evangeline. Kara Mosley was on “Guiding Light” until its cancellation. She was the love interest of Lawrence St. Victor’s character on GL, and now they are both on B&B.

GMAMFB! This was just one of many HATED BS S/l’s that Bell & his script recyclers came up with. Karla’s performance was NOT emmy worthy. In fact the actors, writers & s/l made a mockery of the whole transgender community and this was a total embarrassment. The emmy committee has spoken and I totally agree with them. Mr. Fairman, we all know who pays your salary or a chunk of it for your biased B&B blog. Maybe you should take time and actually watch the show which is awful, might I add, and not just write what that person tells… Read more »

Mr. Fairman is equally supportive of all the soaps, as far as I can tell. If anything, I think General Hospital gets the most love — but that’s to be expected, when you look at the replies, GH posts tend to get the most!

I agree that entire transgender sl was an insult to the real transgender community and having Karla do that role just shows that Bell was looking for shock value to increase his lagging ratings if he really wanted to educate the public then he should have used a real transgender to tell this story he should have done a documentary and air it on lifestyle or educational channel not on daytime soaps. Your right the show SUCKS big time now it has totally gone down the tubes with all the triangles Bell writes isn’t it time to go back to… Read more »

Not surprising. I will be glad when the writers get back to the show as we first knew it to be. these drastic stories are not necessary in our home through the TV. Bradley said he wanted to make people aware….. we are plenty aware of what goes on in the world and for those that did want to watch that, there are plenty of reality shows ,sitcoms, videos ,library’s and so on.. that they can go to. Seems like Television is all concerned about Trans, gays ,Lesbians etc…. that they take a show,from what we liked and what attracted… Read more »

Are you kidding? Straight characters ignored on B&B? That’s ridiculous! Maya is the only LGBT character on B&B. Everyone else is straight!

Your prejudice is showing. You can’t see the forrest from the trees. Look at all the straight characters on B&B: Bill, Katie, Brooke, Liam, Ivy, Steffy, Wyatt, Nicole, Zende, Sasha, Eric, Quinn, Deacon, Vivian, Julius, etc.

The scene where Maya and Caroline make peace with one another should have gotten her and Lindsey the nom. Also the ones with her dad, I think it might be because a transgendered woman isn’t playing the part.

I think K.M. did a great job in the storyline and deserved a nomination.

It’s sad that people still can’t understand that no one chooses to be transgender. This is about science. Why can’t people who use the Internet to make derogatory comments not use Google to do basic research on transgender issues?

As for Kamala Harris, Behar added: “It’s very important we keep her healthy and safe. The Secret Service is doing things to make her feel safe.”

While the delay was announced, Behar and Haines took questions from the in-studio audience.
