Laura Wright and Maurice Bernard have really shown how great of actors they are through the Morgan Corinthians’s story line all there emotional scenes brought tears to my eyes many times they deserve to be recognized for their work such great chemistry and out standing actors

I think Katherine Kelly Lang aka Brooke from B&B should finally get a nod. Her scenes with Heather Thom when Katie gave her the kiss off were excellent. She is so overdue for something. I am hoping the show will be on a channel that I can see. I also think Steve Burton should be acknowledged as well. Although I could take him or leave him, he had some incredible scenes during the outing of Christian. Especially on Christmas Eve. Sometimes he didn’t have to say anything. I felt his pain through his actions alone

I can only speak on GH since it’s the only soap I watch.

Maurice Benard and Laura Wright without a doubt, whether people like them or not, they were excellent during the Morgan’s death storyline. Laura turned in Emmy quality scenes every day for like a week straight.

Speaking of Morgan, Bryan Craig is deserving for sure. He got a lot of criticism from a number of posters here over the years, but I think he really developed into a good young actor, and his performances portraying bi-polar disorder right up until his last day on the show were very well done.

Nancy Lee Grahn had a great year, so did William deVry playing opposite her. Maura West always has to be mentioned, I love watching her in everything she does. I think Hayley Erin really shined with the Morgan’s death stuff as well. Jane Elliot is always overlooked, but when they gave her meaty material when Tracy was sick and dying, she knocked it out of the park, as she always does. I thought Richard Burgi did some great stuff as Paul, even if the storyline twist where he was revealed as the hospital killer wasn’t one of their best.

Those are some of the names from GH that really stand out to me as doing Emmy quality work in 2016.

I think Dominic Zamprogna deserve an emmy for when Morgan died and he was at the police station . He got so upset, and flipped over the file cabinet .

Patrick

YES… so in agreement…. doesn’t matter that … the Sonny and Carly show… have ruined GH. the behind the scenes production team is so lame… to continually prop these two characters… they are MOB… not any where near what GH means.

with so much overkill… yeah, Sonny and Carly, even as a couple, are not interesting. the only three characters who brought any level of interest to : The Sonny and CArly SHOW…

Dante
Ava
Kiki

ps: I loved that scene of Dante in the interrogation room…. by himself… loved the silence in filming that scene… it rocked me to the core for Dante.

it is Dante / Ava / and Kiki who DESERVE emmy nominations…. certainly more than overkill… PROPPED … Carly and Sonny. meh

Marzy Dotes

She’s submitting in the lead actress category this time of year. Only right because she’s been one of GH’s leads. Brilliant decision making on part of GH and ABC.

This year you have to give it to Laura Wright and Maurice Bernard. Their acting during the death of their son was the best on TV!!!!!

I hope Arianne Zucker and Suzanne Rogers get nominations for their work during Days Daniel death story.

I know soaps are daytime drama– but I honestly wish there were categories for performances that used humor or less obvious conflicts– every single year there are reels upon reels of characters either crying, getting mad or dying– that’s it, if your character did any of those things you have a shot at an Emmy —-

Personally I like to see someone like Ms. Grimes who plays Mariah on Y&R get a nod– or the actress who plays Diane on GH– she is rarely on, but when she is, I think she is brilliant as tough as nails lawyer to the mob. WK in either his roles on Days or GH, always overlooked— JA who plays Victor on Days– subtle but always great– so many over looked actors and actresses, because in order to be considered for a lead or supporting nod you have to have a major story line where you either cry, get angry or die– and those who do, it is usually the same few major names that get the award in the end

Totally agree, MIss Mary of SF!

My votes:

Female Lead: Nancy Lee Grahn – no one can even come close to what she did last year and is still doing
Male Lead: William DeVry
Young Actress: Lexi Ainsworth or Haley Erin
Supporting Actress: Jane Elliot

HUH? You mean the overly affected, overly self conscious actress who plays the petulant, spoiled brat Faith?
No one likes her and she is on wayyyy too much.
Nothing against the actress but the character is horrid.

I would love to see Deidre Hall, Melody Thomas Scott, Eric Braeden, Genie Francis, Lynn Herring, John McCook and Katherine Kelly Lang nominated again.

Enough with Heather Tom, Maura West, Nancy Lee Grahn, etc. They are all awesome performers but they each already have tons of Emmy nominations and wins.

Spread the wealth! 🙂

Yes, Genie Francis and Jon Lindstrom based on that beautifully written scene where Jon (Kevin “high” on medicine or pain?) says he has just been existing up to this point and declares his love for Laura–so sweet and uplifting and exquisitely written.
I declare my vote–and love–for Genie and Jon.
And on Days, I do vote for Kate Mansi–and the “burning bed” scene!

Judith Chapman Confirms She Is Back On DAYS And As Leo’s Mom

Exciting news DAYS fans, those rumblings were true! Judith Chapman will be playing the trouble-making Leo Stark’s (Greg Rikaart) mother on Days of our Lives.  And that reunites Chapman with Rikaart as mother and son.

As soap fans know, they played Gloria and Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless for many years together.  Now they will be playing a new mother/son dynamic duo in Salem. But, just what kind of twisted relationship might they have, since Leo has given clues that she was a bad mom?

Soap Opera Digest revealed that Judith will play Diana.   Her first airdate will be on January 29th.  DAYS fans know Judith from her time as Angelica Deveraux from 1989-1991, and most recently when she returned to the show for the 2018 Halloween episode doing a guest-turn as Angelica AKA Satan in Hattie’s (Deidre Hall) nightmare.

Chapman confirmed her arrival on the Salem scene in a tweet today, stating “And I don’t have to keep the secret either Mitch Sandusky! What a GREAT way to start 2019… More articles to come in TV Guide Magazine and Soap Opera Digest… and to be reunited with my TV son.

Diana will have a past with John Black (Drake Hogestyn), which could cause trouble for John and Marlena’s wedded bliss.

So, excited to know Judith will once again tear up the soap-screen, but this time back on DAYS? Comment below.
