The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Pre-Nominations were just announced and several key daytime performers who turned out quality work were conspicuously missing from the final Pre-Nomination ballot.

So now that many soap pundits and fans are in a justified uproar, we throw this question out to you for in our poll of the week, “Who deserved a Daytime Emmy Pre-Nom, but didn’t get in?”  Now remember this is based on those performers who were pre-selected on the first round ballot which was the pre-pre nominations! So only those performers were eligible in the first place to make it through to this round.

You can vote only for ONE candidate, so pick the one performer that you are most upset did not score a nomination.  You can only vote ONCE from One IP Address. Votes will be tabulated and announced next week at On-Air On-Soaps. Voting ends and the poll closes at Midnight Monday Night, February 28th, Pacific Standard Time.

OK, let’s go to the polls! Cast your vote after the jump and then leave a comment on who you picked and why.  We have also given you the OTHER option, if you feel someone else’s absence off the ballot upset you the most.

I mentioned earlier the HORROR that was the omission of Melody Thomas Scott, but I failed to recognize another complete MIND-BOGGLING omission: Stacy Haiduk on the Young and the Restless. Ms. Haiduk was absolutely RIVETING to watch as she seamlessly went from portraying the cool and collected Dr. Emily Peterson to the fury of a completely out-of-touch-with-reality Patty Williams. Melody and Stacy were definite VIP’s in my book and MVP’s in Genoa City in 2010. They have both won my personal award for best actress in a lead role!! Congratulations to you both on a fantastic job!! U are amazing!!

I think she hurt herself by submitting as Lead rather than Supporting. I think she would have definitely been Pre-Nommed in Supporting, and most likely made the final ballot, as well.

I am BEYOND pissed off that Dominic Zamprogna was not nominated. he is INCREDIBLE, SENSATIONAL and AUTHENTIC. what the hell is going on here?! The Emmy noms are a joke. DZ absolutely deserved to be nominated. this is heart breaking. I am crushed. But I see that the noms are all about politics and not TRUE talent…which is total BS. Dominic Zamprogna is KING!

I feel Crystal Chappell’s return to DOOL breathed some life back into the show.Even though lately her storyline has stalled, she always made the most of what she was given. Also, I feel her presense has made other actors on the show bring their best, such as Molly Burnett and Nadia Bjorlin. I loved the chemistry between CC and Louise Sorel also.Thank you.

Really? She and her story are BORING

Lisa

Her story being BORING is all on the writers at DOOL, but that says nothing about her skills as an actress. No matter what crap the story is, she graciously makes the best of it and puts on a great performance. Definitely the biggest snub on the list.

Michele
Guest
Michele

CC is at the top of her game. She definitely brings out the best in those that are in scenes with her. Days failure is to give her a storyline that highlights her talent. What do you expect when all they write are about clones, kidnapping, organ stealing and people attacking under the influence of sleeping pills….very realistic?! I agree she make the best out of the crap she is given. Hoping the new storyline is realistic and of some quality!

I thought the category was ” Best Actress”. What was Kelly Monaco nominated for? Her outstanding impression of an woman trying to wave a plane in for a landing? The woman does nothing but flail her arms, flip her hair and look for her lines posted on the ceiling. Worst actress on daytime.

I have to agree. Though there may have been years with more substance to make a nod believable, I wouldn’t say 2010 stretched her chops at all. Maybe it’s because they the show has only 2 lead females that she got the nomination? Either way, I can’t say I’ve ever been impressed with KM’s performances except when she was a ‘bad’ girl. Rather liked her then and she kept her arms at her sides mostly.

Eric Braden and Melody Thomas Scott for Y&R. Them not making the cut was a surprise to me since they were so front and center in storylines. And Kimberly McCullough for General Hospital. I just started watching General Hospital because I caught some “Scrubs” scenes and was hooked.

I think Eric Braden and Melody Thomas Scott should have been in pre-noms; however, MM as Adam, no way. He has been the downfall of Sharon Case and Y & R. This hated character needs to leave GC. Many have stopped watching because of this character.

Stephanie
Guest
Stephanie

I am torn on MM. As a character I am no fan of Adam, because this Adam and Sharon pairing makes me sick. But MM as an actor is another story. As an actor he plays the villian well and was a key player in the year’s biggest storylines (such as they were).

But out of everyone I still go with Eric Braden and Melody Thomas Scott. Both of them have given flawless performances and deserved to be recognized.

Jasmine
Guest
Jasmine

To me MM as an actor is nothing special. The villain he portrayed is beyond redemption and, in my. Opinion, has caused the show great harm. I don’t think MM’s portrayal was any better than the original actorEXCEPT, when MM took over, the blindness seems to come and go. Nothing against the actor, I just think he has been forced on the viewers, so he has been on a lot BUT his performance was nothing special.

It is an absolute travesty that Dominic Zamprogna did not receive a pre-nomination for an Emmy. His performances all year were intense, emotional, riveting, dramatic; they were subtle, nuanced, quiet; they were funny; they were romantic; they were strong — in other words, he ACTED every day in every show — he gave 110% every time he was on screen. He has incredible chemstry with his love interest, but also with his other co-stars. I think the man could have chemistry with a tree he is so good. How he wasn’t nominated for just the Sonny shooting his son episode… Read more »

I must agree, for the Best Actress Female prenoms, hands down it should have been Laura Wright and Kimberly McCullough. Kim and Jason Thompson consistently gave stellar performances during the entire Fatal Attraction storyline. The clincher being when Patrick finally told Robin that he slept with Lisa. Those scenes alone should be what moves both actors to the final five of Best Actor and also on the reel for Best Writing. I don’t understand exactly how the Emmy process works but it sure seems messed up when an actress who never had a storyline that gave her a lead role… Read more »

DZ should have received a nod. Absolutely floored that he wasn’t recognized. Just goes to show that this is more of a popularity award, than one based on actual performance. Not trying to take away from the other actors pre-nominated in DZ’s category, but he DESERVED this pre-nomination based on last year’s phenomenal performance.

Kimberly McCullough was the one who broke my heart. She FINALLY had the material and made it work. I felt Robin’s pain as if I was cheated on. She was just amazing during the reveal and after. Even today she had me crying for Robin. She had the material and worked it beyond what it could be. I felt for Robin. Even non Scrub fans were complimenting her work and thought she had it sewn up and then nothing. This is just insulting as a viewer. The whole process. How can you pre nom when you never saw the work?… Read more »

Deeply shocked about Kimberly McCullough’s snub by the academy. The Daytime Emmy’s are a joke to me now and truly showed they have no concept of talent. No offense to Julie Marie Berman, but what did she do to top KMC’s performance? Nothing, she just happens to be a favorite.

I am very disappointed Susan Lucci was not nominated this year. She has a very difficult role; many people think it is her because she is Erica Kane but those in the know will recognize Lucci is not Erica Kane. Very different people which goes to her credibility as an actress. The writers could help Lucci but she has done some amazing work this past year with her daughters on the show and even her dealing with her mother who she misses. She is a very under rated actress.

imasoapfan
Guest
imasoapfan

I agree, I think Susan Lucci did some truly moving work this year: Palmer’s death, her reunion with her friend/enemy Brooke, saying goodbye to Adam, missing her mother Mona, the campy “Dorothy” scenes, and her struggles to keep her daughters safe and happy.

Markus
Guest
Markus

Sadly, the soap opera genre tends to skew itself to the younger market. I’m in my thirties and admit Lucci looks great for any age. But they seem to give her more of a supporting role to her daughters often when she still has the “it” qualities. Lucci in my opinion is at a disadvantage – to the world she is Erica Kane and Erica Kane is over the top, out of this world with a bit of camp. Still if you look at Lucci’s performance they remain true to the character – multi faceted as we see but she… Read more »

For me I thought the biggest error was not including FL instead of GT. Second would be Kim in place of JMB. In the end, I hope the award for supporting goes to MCE, so theres part of me thats glad Kim didnt get selected as she would have been MCE’s biggest competition. Now she just has to get past NLG.

An actor is NOT eligible for a pre-nom if they didnt first make the list of individuals under consideration. I jokingly called that the pre pre nom list because thats really what it is. If becky wasnt on that list, then she wasnt going to make this list either, no matter HOW anyone FEELS about it. You can FEEL she should have made THAT list, but once she didnt, she no longer became eligible. Conversely both Kim and Florencia actually made that list of eligible actors but did not make the cut for an actual pre-nom. Dont blame me, I… Read more »

I cannot believe that Kimberly McCullough was snubbed. The confession scenes between her and JT were phenomenal, and I think they both deserved to be up for it (Congrats to JT!). I think it’s pretty clear that JMB is up there again simply because she’s on all the time, rather than her actual acting ability. Don’t get me wrong, she’s good – but her scenes were not nearly as powerful as Kimberly’s this year.

Cathy
Guest

KImberly is the biggest surprise. With everyone talking about her and the FA story and then she is snubbed is ridiculous.

It wasn’t just the reveal scenes with Kimberly it was even after that. Heck even now during Sonny and Brenda’s wedding. I am speechless.

Sorry but JMB didn’t have anything. I agree about her being on all the time and more noticable. Too bad it isn’t on talent first and then best talent.

So many top stars ignored tell me the process is OFF!

I cannot believe that Dominic Zamprogna was not nominated!! He has been outstanding ever since he first joined GH, and his work this past year, the reveal as Sonny’s son, his scenes with his mom following the reveal…they were just mezmerizing and intense and heartbreaking. Dominic is one of the finest actors on TV…and NOT just daytime TV. This goes down in my book as a biggest mistake the Emmys made this year. How can Julie Berman get a nom and not her leading man…freaking unbelievable!!!

His scenes in the shooting with Maurice Bernard would easily solidify him a nomination. I started watching GH again because of Jonathan Jackson and stayed because of JJ and DZ. Those two and Lante and really the reason I have once again invested in the show. This is just plain crazy.

There were a few snubs this year that pissed me off. First of all, Kimberly McCullough. I was actually thinking about it, and while she is a supporting actress on the show, she probably would have been pre-nominated if she submitted as a lead. I have been trying to think about what Nancy Lee Grahn did last year and certain scenes did come to mind; Julie Marie Berman was harder to remember.

Absolutely the one who got snubbed the most is Dominic Zamprogna. How can he not be a pre-nom when he gives 1,000% every day and has one amazing, stunning and captivating performance after another. There is no other actor on TV (daytime, night, etc) that puts that much emotion into every scene, he is so real. No other actor has given me smiles, brought me to tears, and given me so much to look forward every day watching GH. He is the winner in my heart and a winner every day.

There is no “agenda” – because the soaps themselves no longer control the Pre-Nom voting process. Anybody can submit now, they don’t have to be submitted by the show. The in house voting only counts for a small part of the Pre-Nom process now. They started doing this last year to avoid on-set politics, cries of favoritism,and to refute the old “popularity contest” argument.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

Photo: JPI

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
