Dan J Kroll, the  brain trust  and founder of Soap Central shared with On-Air On-Soaps why the Dankies differ from any other type of online award recognition for the genre: “For more than a decade, visitors have helped to pick the best of the genre. Sure, daytime has the Emmys, but this is something more special. I think what makes the Dankies so special is that the fans are involved in every stage of the process — from the nominations to the finalists to the winners. There’s no other awards process that allows this much fan involvement. ”

No Michelle Stafford for lead actress?

What the hell?

Stafford is pretty much excellent in practically all her scenes. Can people accuse her of overacting or scene chewery? Yes. But no one can say she’s boring or phoning in it in any scene.

I like the acting choices she makes when Phyliss stammers or begins to lose it. Everytime Phyliss goes after Sharon, it’s a lot of fun. Stafford can bring drama and comedy and meld them seamlessly in a scene. It was great when Phyliss threatened to tell people Sharon was a kleptomaniac, and then Sharon called her bluff and had security throw Phyliss outta her room. When security dragged Phyliss outta there, her “You’re hurting my arm.” was hilarious!

Stafford should submit Phyliss sneaking into Sharon’s room and trashing it, or Phyliss screaming at Nick to move on from his first love while he dumps her. Stafford’s one of Daytime’s best actresses. She is certainly better than Sweeney, Minshew, Cooper, Wright, West, Williamson and maybe even Chappell since some of the Otalia scenes (like when Olivia tells her she’s in love w/ her before the wedding) was Chappell overacting in a bad way.

I’m really bummed that Scott Evans and the Kish s/l were snubbed from the fans’ final voting ballot=( At least Brett Claywell won for best newcomer for OLTL, but it’s just not the same (no matter what bottomchef says otherwise to the contrary!)

Oh, congrats to brett claywell for winning best newcomer. He’s certainly the newcomer on everyone’s minds, he’s omnipresent! LOL!

But everything is subjective CLB.

There are countless Emmy wins that I agree on: Finnigan’s second Emmy win, Flannery’s first Emmy for B&B, Case’s supporting actress nod, Grimes beating out Frantz for Cassie’s custody arc.

And there are countless Emmy wins that are completely perplexing.

But there are countless Emmy snubs that are even worse. Still no Emmys or even nominations for Melody Thomas Scott, Katherine Kelly Lang, Colleen Zenk Pinter, Bobbie Eakes, Hunter Tylo and Kimberlin Brown!

I wasn’t talking about the daytime emmys bottomchef, I was talking about’s dankie awards! IDK why you were comparing the dankies to the daytime emmys?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

When it was time for her to make her speech to the audience and the cameras at home, Kelly shared: “I just want to say, first and foremost, thank you, Mark, for being an incredible, incredible partner. You make it look easy and it is not easy and the ease at which you do this job inspires me and all of us every single day. ” Ripa also went on to thank the producers, EP Michael Gelman, everyone at the show behind the scenes, and the loyal audience at home for watching every single day.

Mark expressed: I would have said, my dad always told me to marry somebody who’s better than you and try to work with people who are way better than you as well. So, I’ve done both those things. So ,thank you. Thank you for holding me up. I appreciate it.”

Watch Kelly and Mark celebrate their Daytime Emmy victory on ‘Live’ below.
