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.

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 Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!


Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
