TVG Canada reveals pre-pre Daytime Emmy nominee list & we explain the voting process!

Ah, the game is on, and what a tangled web we weave in the soap world! TV Guide Canada’s Nelson Branco today revealed and compiled a list from each of the daytime soap operas of the performers who are now eligible for this year’s Daytime Emmy competition. And, in the first list you will find some big shockeroos!  Namely,Van Hansis is not competing from As the World Turns after his final year of amazing performances. Then Y&R newbie, the talented soap veteran, Tristan Rogers is in the lead category, and OLTL’s  scene-stealer, Robin Strasser entered herself into supporting group,  plus a plethora of other head-scratchers.

On-Air On-Soaps today, after receiving numerous inquiries from our readers and fans, had a direct discussion with NATAS’s Daytime Executive Director, Brent Stanton, who adminsters the Emmy voting process.  To clarify: all soaps nominate performers they feel deserving of a nomination in each of the acting categories.  However, that does not exclude other actors on the show from also submitting their names on the ballot in the category they deem for themselves, if they feel they have emmy-worthy material to submit.

Then, performers who are registered with NATAS for the Emmy voting process, vote in the acting categories, cross-soap, and it is their votes that determine the pre-nomination ballot which will be announced on February 25th.   No reels of the actors work are submitted for viewing in the pre-pre nomination process.  Once selected as an official pre-nominee, then those actors will have to submit one show of their work to be judged in the competition.

Stanton also expressed that he did his best to encourage all As the World Turns performers that wanted to take part in the Emmy process this year to do so, even saying he assisted with helping them get the paperwork, etc, in order, since there was no one left at that show anymore, since it’s cancellation last fall.

View the complete list of pre-pre nominees here and then let us know any glaring omissions in your opinion,  or who you think deserves a pre-nomination!

Thank you, Michael, for explaining that real complicated process of the Emmy pre-pre-, pre- and just noms procedure 🙂 .

I´m really happy to see Eric Sheffer Stevens on the list 🙂 . I want him to win an Emmy. His performance was just too remarkable to go without a special honor.

Van Hansis deserves an Emmy more than everyone else! His emotional scenes were so wonderfully gut-wrenching!

Eric deserves an Emmy more than anyone else. Without him a lot of people wouldn´t even have watched this soap. Van didn´t submit himself, so actually the thing is eaten. Tell Van, how disappointed you are. I f.e. can´t change a thing.

It is a total shame that Van Hansis isn’t included in that list! I am sure he didn’t submit his work, God knows why. I am totally sad that Van Hansis won’t be, AGAIN, recognized for his amazing work!

OMG Van Hansis not submitting his work or having it submitted is so sad.This should have been his year to win an emmy.Michael , can you please find out why?I was and am a LuRe fan and while I loved them both as a couple and admired both of their acting skills ,Reid could not stand alone whereas Luke could.Van is such a wonderful actor and he’s so real.I hope he’s not frustrated with ATWT going off and trying to find a decent job.It must be so tough for him.Van if you read this please know so many of your… Read more »

So now it begins … . Reid could have totally stood alone, he actually most of the time did. It´s not Eric´s fault, that Van didn´t submit himself. Eric totally deserves to be nominated.

I love Eric and he is deserving too, but in my mind Van should win this year.Why he didn’t submit is a mystery to me.He had so many good scenes , especially when Reid died and he was so devastated!!!

mmc, I totally agree with you. Van deserves to win en Emmy. I don’t understand why he didn’t submit his work. He was so consistent and in several episodes, he was more than perfect!

Van is a good actor, and of course he deserved to be nominated, BUT he didn´t submit himself. Maybe he would have been nominated in another category anyway, I don´t know about the choices, who is “leading” and who is “supporting” actor etc..

But I want Eric to win his more than deserved Emmy.

It´s good, that this is a big world with billions of different opinions … .

Eric (Sheffer Stevens), you are the best. Go and get your Emmy 🙂 . You are the most brilliant actor I have ever seen. You didn´t play ‘Reid’, you were ‘Reid’.

As a viewer who’s witnessed countless Emmy snubs and wins over the past 30+ years all I have to say is it’s astonishing to find Brandon Buddy from One Life To Live absent from the nomination list, while a few talentless newbies entered themselves into the race. Guy is crazy if he didn’t submit material from his last days! He did an impeccable job. I would have hoped someone would have acknowledged that behind the scenes over there. Hate or love his character, Brandon Buddy has grown so much over the years as an actor and he deserved a nod.… Read more »

I’m really happy for Eric Sheffer Stevens, he definitely deserves to be nominated. But I can’t believe Van Hansis isn’t on the list. He was incredible this past year, especially when Reid died. I don’t know how this all works, but I’m really scratching my head about Van.

What the hell!! Galen Gering as Lead actor Really!!!! He’s Ok but NOT Emmy -worthy material. I’m happy about James Scott , John Aniston & Peter .

My son just sent me some E mails with statements from Van Hansis as to why he didn’t submit an Emmy.They were on his facebook.He seems to be ok with not submitting.even though those of us that love him know this should have been his year to win, we have to respect his choice. Go to lovelures board and she wrote the same info my son sent me.I really feel sad because his acting was more than good, it was excellent.When you read what he posted you’ll not only love him as an actor but more than that you’ll see… Read more »

Even though I respect so much what he had to say , I think it can’t hurt to have a nomination and hopefully a win.I hope he’s not making a big mistake by not submitting.2010 was his best year ….it doesn’t make sense to me and i feel really sad about it!

I remain very frustrated with these awards. Thank you for explaining the process for us. Personally, sometimes I scratch my heads on why some people are nominated over and others and win. For example, I think Kirstin Storms is the most talented in the young actresses category on GH in my opinion– remember her heartbreaking scene at Georgie’s funeral a few years ago when she verbally attacked Felicia? Bravo! Did she get an award? No. Kimberly McCullough should have been nominated for her post partum depression story and she wasn’t. I think she deserves to win this year for the… Read more »

Honestly I thought Van Hansis did better work during Luke’s coming out storyline. He should’ve won the Emmy back then.

Good luck, ESS. You’re going to need it.

I can’t believe OLTL’s options. Gina Tognoni in lead? She has had almost nothing to do since her return. I adore her and she should get an award every year just for being on tv, but not a lead actress nomination this year. OLTL should get it together and help her get one next year. Their best bet is Florencia Lozano. It gets scary at supporting actor. Does Sean Ringold really think he is going to get nominated? And what about Shenelle Edmonds? She is adorable…but still seems so unnatural. Even worse……David Gregory for outstanding younger actor? He is just… Read more »

Will someone explain to me why Nic Robuck, Farah Fath and David Gregory bothered to submit themselves? Parading around in the buff is not Emmy worthy nor does it constitute as acting! OLTL’s younger set is far from perfect but Nic is by far the show’s weakest link. My 6 year old can cry on command in a far more believable manor than he can. Eddie Alderson is fantastic, he’ll make the cut. That kid will go far. Jason Tam was another fantastic performer (his talents go way beyond Daytime) but of course this show loves to throw away the… Read more »

Completely forgot about Farah Fath’s work with Stacy on Ice. Definitely see why she submitted her name now. She did a phenomenal job with that particular storyline.

I think Kimberly McCullough and Jason Thompson did amazing work this year with what was certainly a difficult storyline to perform. What astounds me is that Brianna Brown who portrays likely the most despised character on the canvas is also considered in the same category as Kimberly, who gave the performances of her career. While Brown did okay work in this storyline, it was nowhere close to what Kimberly performed. I hope the daytime Emmy committee realizes that Brown’s performances were nowhere close to the work of the other actors in this category and eliminates her from the final ballot.

I absolutely agree. Jason Thompson & Kimberly Mccullough gave a stellar performances. They both deserve nominations.

Brianna Brown doesn’t deserve to be in any Emmy category. She is mediocre at best.

Brianna Brown? Is this a joke? How much talent does it take to repeatedly say “ok” or “alright” and smirk like an idiot?

I see there is a little Van vs. Eric grumbling on here. I love both of them and give them props on their amazing acting skills. But Eric has nothing to do with Van’s decision, and it WAS Van’s decision. He has stated his reasoning, and I repect him for that. He also said on his FB page that he thought Eric would win. I am assuming they are each OK with their decisions. I would love to see Eric win. I would say, instead of pitting them against each other and saying one could stand on his own and… Read more »

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.
