And the race is officially on!  This morning the nominations were announced for the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Pre-Nominations which determine which daytime drama performers are officially in the running for Emmy gold.  Next step, the final round of judging which gets underway on March 27, 2012.

Here is how it worked:   A ballot containing a full list of entrants in each of the six performer categories was sent to registered, eligible peer judges.  The ballot contained an unrevealed and randomized order of performers in each category, regardless of their show affiliation.

Judges were required to view clips containing the work of each performer entry before selecting their top 10 performer choices in each category.  The judges sent their ballots directly to Lutz & Carr, an independent accounting firm, who tabulated the results. The Lead Actor contains 11 pre-nominated performers due to a tie int his category.  The candidates below who received the highest number of votes now advance to the blue ribbon at-home screening round, scheduled to begin on March 27th, 2012, which will determine both nominees and winners.

And now after the jump, here are this years Pre-Nominees!

Congratulations to all the Pre-Nominees, but yes, there are some glaring omissions! Where is Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH), James Scott (EJ, DAYS) Ilene Kristen (Roxy, OLTL), Florencia Lozano (Tea, OLTL) and Kristen Alderson (OLTL)? And … a host of others!

Take a look at the list soapers, and let us know who you are rooting for in the six acting categories! More soon, as On-Air On-Soaps will bring you our continued Daytime Emmy coverage!

I can’t believe James Scott has not been nominated! He is one of the best actors in Daytime. And his performance during the death of his son Johnny was outstanding. Just don’t get how he could have been overlooked.

Also where is the talented Lauren Koslow? She has been overlooked again? Her performance as Kate is truly emmy worthy.

Congratulations to all the Days of Our Lives nominees! Chandler Massey has the emmy won for younger actor.

Jules
Guest

James Scott’s omission has me confused too. As does Alison Sweeney’s. Did they not submit the scenes where they thought Johnny was dead? Not the sex part, but the tour de france tennis match they had before it? And if not, WHY THE HELL DIDN’T THEY? It was by far their best work of the year, and they both knew it. They talked about how much pre-work went into making those scenes work was. Very odd IMO.

WTH are wrong with the people in charge of the Emmy pre nominations. Dominic Zamprogna is such a passionate phenomenal actor and its beyond my understanding why such a fantastic actor was not nominated. and snubbed by all in charge..

1MALLOYFAN
Guest

I couldn’t agree more! He should have been nominated last year but it was said that he wasn’t qualified because an actor had to be on during a certain time frame. However, Jonathan Jackson was nominated and wasn’t on the show long enough as well. I believe that these nominations are so partial to certain actors/actresses. But Karma will win and those that were shunned will make it big time in this industry!

Cheryl
Guest

I third this. Dominic Zamprogna has been overlooked for three years now. I don’t understand if this is some sort of popularity contest or what? Obviously these people are not voting on acting ability. No offense to Sean Blakemore but that is a joke. He’s like a glorified extra. Everyone says Daytime Emmy’s are a joke. Well I believe them now…..

Outstanding Lead Actress In a Drama Series ~ Crystal Chappell will ALWAYS get my vote in any category. She is truly an Outstanding Actress and an Amazing Lady (not to mention smart & beautiful). She is sooo deserving of any and all awards she receives.

I can’t speak to all, but other than a few places which I can see the Emmys got it right (Michael Muhney, Debbi Morgan, Darnell Williams – and I have never watched Y&R, & haven’t watched AMC really this year), the rest seems to be business as usual. Lead Actress who did not have story? Supporting who was on for a few months & only recaptured character at the end (and I love her)? Younger actor nominees who can barely walk through a line reading? Lead Actor nominees who are unwatchable and barely coherent? I don’t see how anything has… Read more »

Why weren’t James Scott or Alison Sweeney or Katherine Kelly Lang nominated? Why isn’t Billy Miller in lead actor category? Why is Debbi Morgan nominated for Harmony????? Surely there was someone better. Not saying she’s not a good actress, but she hasn’t had much to do on Y&R. Glad to see Chandler Massey, Don Diamont, Michael Muhney nominated. Some good, some bad as it is every year.

I question the wisdom of some of the pre-noms in some of the categories. So, here goes my dissection of the pre-noms: Lead Actress: Jeanne Cooper should NOT have been put on the pre-nom list at all. She did not have a strong storyline at all last year. The fact that Katherine Kelly Lang from B&B was again not on the pre-nom list is another glaring omission. KKL had a great year last year. Another omission would be Alison Sweeney for DOOL. She definitely should have been on the pre-nom ballot for Lead Actress, especially for her work when Johnny… Read more »

Do you think Stephen Nichols’ pre-nom is in the wrong category? I can’t think of any other reason it would puzzle you. I mean, honestly, you couldn’t think Chander Massey deserves an Emmy but not Stephen Nichols, right???

Ok I watch both soap operas and to be honest Stephen Nicholas is not a lead actor and he is good actor, but show nothing that was quite emmy worthy. Chandler Massey is very talented actor for his age and gave emmy worthy perfomance. Both are good actors , but Joshua Morrow and Eric Braeden did better than Stephen Nicholas, but did not submit any thing.

Michael
Guest

Andrew Treschetta?! Seriously?! He can’t act his way out of a paper bag to save his life! Sorry, but that is one actor that I’m glad was not on the pre-nom list. Austin Williams (Shane) can and does act way better than Andrew can dream of doing.

Alexa
Guest
Alexa

Personally, I’m inclined to say that both have improved, as has Shenell Edmonds and Patrick J. Gibbons, but none of them are at the point of deserving a nomination.

The only time I found Austin Williams to be believable, was a brief moment when Shane became convinced that the presumed dead Gigi was really his mother.

Kelley Missal, on the other hand, has come a very long way, and I see Florencia Lozano’s fingerprints on that talent. Where was her pre(pre) nomination?

Erika Slezak more than deserves the award. As for pitting Chandler Massey,Austin Williams and Eddie Alderson against each other..Wow! Talk about ‘Sophie’s Choice’. Damn!

Erika would be the best win. Should she not get it, which I doubt, it will go to Blair.
NOT sure who will win male. ???
NLG deserves to win for supporting actress. But will she? I doubt it.
Supporting actor will be hard….As much as I HATE Spinelli’s character, he is a good actor. But I want Jason Thompson to get it!!!
Is Molly going to win ?? (younger actress)
I bet Shane wins at OLTL. He was good last year in the bullying storyline.

Shes another one that should have been pre nom. no one does a crying scene like Bree.. Shes gotten nominated in the past but never wins.. soo sad! They’re both amazing and will be missed.

Michael,

I agree that Debbi Morgan should not have gotten a pre-nom as supporting actress for her role on Y&R. She hasn’t been on the show all that long for her to have gotten any decent material to present. She made her first airdate late last year.

How old do you have to be before you are no longer considered “younger” as in the “younger” actor category. Because I am wondering why Christel Khalil is in that one.

I don’t know how it will all play out, but there have been some performances in the last few months that have knocked my socks off. Jason Thompson’s this week was one of them.

[I am only familiar with ABC soaps.] Agree on the glaring omissions! Unbelievable OLTL’s Florencia Lozano (Tea) and Ilene Kristen (Roxy) not included, and Trevor St John (Todd/Victor) and Kelley Missal (Danielle) weren’t in the pre-nominations. Lozano and St John have been incredible for the last couple of years. I don’t understand how or why they have been repeatedly passed over. I am happy for OLTL’s Kassie Depaiva (Blair) and hope she wins. She deserves an Emmy for almost 20 years of consistently great work. Jerry verDorn (Clint) is also worthy, but neither Kassie nor Jerry likely have a high… Read more »

I agree ,but you have to throw kassie depava in there to ,she is a good actress and I never understood why she was never up for any award ,especially when one life to live went live ,she was brilliant .so i will be happy if one of those two win ,and I hope that one life to live takes all the awards,the best everything,love and miss my favorite soap.

My objection is that Kassie DePaiva did not have a lead story, so she should not have been submitted in the lead actress category, much like Gina Tognoni should not be on this list for supporting.

I noticed that Florencia was not on the list, neither was Farah Fath who in my opinion killed it on the rooftop and what about Melissa Archer or Bree?

I love Gina, as well, but she had no story and admitted herself that she didn’t reclaim her character until shortly before she left the show.

Also, Kassie DePaiva did not have a lead story, so where does this nomination originate? I also heard she had a very weak reel (which seems to be the popular reason Kimberly McCullough was not nominated).

I don’t see how Florencia Lozano could be omitted again.

How are the awards revamped again?

Torrey

Exactly….Florencia, Bree, Melissa, & Erika were the actresses that were HEAVILY featured on OLTL last year. Hell, Farah was featured WAY more than Gina….so this nomination just makes no sense.

This list sucks! In what world could OLTL not have 1 nomination possible for younger actress but DOOL can have 4….when Kristen Alderson delivered every day of 2011 as well as Kelly Missal. Also a head-scratcher is how neither Farah Fath or John Paul Lavoisier made the cut. The scenes of them talking down Shane from the rooftop were classic and some of the most powerful of the year. Gina Tognoni as the only OLTL supporting actress. Really? OLTL consistently mangled her stories.

Agree with everything. It’s as if there was no connection between the pre-noms and the reality of what we saw on OLTL.

Both of yall should know that days of our lives 90% of time is snub in nominations and at the emmys awards, but. do agree with you , that at least Kristien Alderson should. have been given a nod, but One life to Live is usually does not get any nods in this category and Days usually does not get any nods in lead actress or supporting actor, were one life to live does get nods.

I’m glad I waited for the official announcement of the pre-noms before getting too excited. They are some names on this list that weren’t mentioned before so it’s a nice surprise. I am a little surprised that gh got so many prenoms. The actors are all great but weren’t really given a lot of good story lines to work with last year imho. I’m crossing my fingers that this is KDP’s year. It amazes me that she hasn’t won before. I wish Roger Howarth and Mark Lawson would have been on the list but I think their was some tough… Read more »

Gotta love that Crystal Chappell is the first name and picture on this list. Go, CC!

Very interesting that the only leading lady for Days is the one they fired right after she shot the scene that got her pre-nominated. All the more reason to take it home!

Congrats to Ari, Molly, Chandler, & Nadia also! Good luck!

After the performances Melody Thomas Scott has been giving last year and the past few months in particular, THIS IS HER YEAR! It’s high time they give her the Emmy she’s deserved for 33 years!

Couldn’t agree more, her name jumped out at me because she is hardly ever recognized for her work, and this year in particular she was unbelievable.

Well said! The voting process was a joke for years-all about popularity! Hopefully this year, with the changes they’ve made, that’s finally over!

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.
