No nominations for Crystal Chappell and Hillary B Smith as best actress/drama?? No nomination for Elizabeth Keifer as best supporting actress/drama?? WTF!

It’s mind boggling that Jessica Leccia did not get a nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Jessica was excellent in EVERY episode of season 2 just as she was in season one. Leccia should have gotten a nomination. I’m going to give this awards show a miss.

Congratulations to Venice the Series for its well deserved nomination for Best Soap Opera. Bravo Crystal for writing a compelling story that made Season 2 must watch programming. Congratulations to Nadia Bjorlin and Jordan Clarke of Venice the Series for their supporting actress/actor nominations. Jordan was amazing. The Colonel’s walk to the mail box to send Gina’s letter to Ani was one of the most moving moments I have ever seen. Just one of many moments for him this season. I have never seen Nadia more raw as an actress. I agree with the first poster, I would have added Hillary B. Smith. Crystal was also fantastic but I think this year the nomination for best soap is more a credit to her talent than any other category nomination. Such a huge improvement from Season 1 to Season 2. And although they had their best material in the finale, Wes Ramsey and Gina Tognoni were also good this year.
