Finola Hughes for so many of her scenes, and Ian Buchanan in his double role as Fuke and Duke. In supporting, perhaps Anders Hove (not sure if he qualifies–maybe as guest star), Jason Thompson, Kimberly McCullough. So many spectacular GH performances in the Robin/Faison s/l. Scrubs’ daughter Emma for younger actress


Susan Flannery, Heather Tom & Sharon Case for Lead Actress
Eric Braeden & Michael Muhney for Lead Actor
B&B for Best Drama. Stephanie’s death did it!
Jacqueline MacInnes Wood for Younger Actress

I know there are many great performances worthy of a Emmy nod, but my sentimental favorite, but probably doesn’t have a hope in hell of getting nominated, would be Doug Davidson on Y&R. I think that scene where he had to shoot his own son was one of the best moments on the show this year. I know no one will agree with me and tell me all the other actors who deserve a nod more than him, but I guess I like the underdog. I hope DD at least submits the scene for consideration.


Amen, Mary SF. That poor man killed those scenes and is very deserving.


I wish they would of added the guest star categories So Hove and Kassie Deprive can win emmys.

Jerry Ver Dorn

For Series

OLTL Final Episode
GH–To many to choose from….Thanksgiving? Jacks vs. Sonny/Jax showdown?..
B&B-Stephanie’s death


Sorry, but I don’t feel anyone from OLTL should be nominated. They worked 2 WEEKS when the actors on the other shows put in a full year. I really wouldn’t be fair, no matter how deserving they may have been in the past.

I also don’t feel a person who was on for only 7 shows should be in a supporting category, for the same reasons.

It would be nice if there were awards for guest appearances though.


Of the 8 or so comments, the only ones I agree with so far that are worthy are:

Doug Davidson (Y&R)
Susan Flannery (B&B)
Jason Thompson (GH)
Finola Hughes (GH)
Heather Tom (B&B)

No disrespect, but I just don’t see Andre Hove’s’ acting being that mindblowing – unless it was for a guest star nomination. Sadly I don’t see what Ian Buchanan has done this far on GH that is above and beyond what anyone else has done.

I could possibly see Sharon Case only because the way the character was written wanted me to smack her almost every day for several months, so that has to be good acting there as well.


To edit my comment, I meant ANDERS. This bugged me after I went to bed last night. I just knew I spelled the man’s name wrong. I’m sorry.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.
