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.

Lead Actor
Jerry Ver Dorn
Steve Burton
Doug Davidson
Ian Buchanon

Lead Actress
Susan Fanney
Finola Huges
Heather Toms
Erika Slezak

Supporting Actor
Andrew Hoves
Roger Howarth (GH)
Jason Thompson
Tristan Rogers

Supporting Actress
Kimberly McCullough
Arianne Zucker
Katherine Kelly Lang
Kassie Depaiva (GH for the scenes Blair tells todd she is marrying Tomas)

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: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

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?
