She is in my top 3! Kathryn Hays and Robin Strasser are also in my top 3 of all time! I really hope Maura wins her 4th Emmy on the 26th! (:

I absolutely loved Maura West and Arianne Zucker and will be ecstatic if either of them win! They were on FIRE! (: Finola Hughes is fine but underwhelming, and I really didn’t like either of the B&B women’s scenes. I will be really disappointed if the winner isn’t Maura or Ari – I am hoping for a tie! I truly do not understand why so many are rooting for Katherine Kelly Lang. What bothers me about her is that her scenes are always endless repeats – deja vu – I have seen her fights with Ridge, Taylor and Katie a… Read more »

Who should win? Stacy Haiduk. How the eff is she not nominated?
Who will win? Arianne Zucker, who did a fantastic job playing Nicole and Kristen as Nicole. I could say the breathtaking Maura West every year, but that hardly seems fair!

it’d be great to see Arianne Zucker and/or Katherine Kelly Lang take home, because they are over due… no question this is a lack luster list. so it’s by process of elimination… my own Heather Tom is unmentionable’ WHY ? that 1/2 hour show… and/or all 19 minutes of it… can KEEP her. too much air time and we’d be all over her Maura West… you are on a lackluster … dullard focus…no writing… they can’t even drum up any focus eps like Y&R to emmy shoot. Finola Hughes : You are so boring…. !!!! w/Finn AND Peter… PERIOD no… Read more »

It’s a no-brainer–Maura West—a trillion times over!! This superlative thespian is a chameleon. Her rendition of any character is perfected from A to Z. No diamond in the rough, she!!

I would have to say Maura West, although I am not an Ava fan. I think Finola was cheated through no fault of her own, by getting her so involved with Peter, Finn and Robert with nothing ever really coming of their relationships, but boredom.

I am not an Ava fan–certainly am not! And I am not a fan of West’s acting–I find it overblown and histrionic, Violet. I AM a fan of Finola–always, but, unfortunately, I am not a fan of her storyline with Peter; it renders her weak and gullible. She is much better with Tristan Rogers (Robert); their quips and improvisations are always funny and exciting. They, like Genie, can do a lot by raising one eyebrow! 🙂
