I am rooting for KKL. I have loved the SL of Stephanie’s cancer, with Brooke, since Mrs. Forrester was diagnosed in 2010.

And KKL deserves an Emmy for her portrayal of Brooke Logan! She is just fabulous and continues to make me root for Brooke, even when the writing is against the character.

I am rooting for KKL too! She deserves to win for her portrayal of Brooke. She is a talented actress and seems to be a genuinely lovely person in real life. Good luck KKL!

Glad I am not judging the problem with Julie & Katherine’s reels are you are distracted because TG & SF are such dominating forces. Would not even try to pick glad that is up to somebody else.

I don’t watch B&B but KKL seems like the overall favorite to win. However my second choice would be Melissa Claire Egan. Loved her on AMC and am glad to see she in not the crazy one on Y&R.

It’s great to watch five incredibly talented ladies perform so well. My two choices are Julie Marie Berman and Katherine Kelly Lang – both such awesome performances that I’d love to see both win for different reasons. I appreciated the quiet, deep emotion of KKL’s portrayal .. and death scenes can be especially compelling. I also admired the range and intensity of emotion in Julie’s reel – anger, fear, frustration, vulnerability and contented strength and calm at the end. And I love how Julie’s reel tells so much of the whole story of Lulu and Luke Spencer. Amazing work ladies!

I pick Julie Marie Berman as the winner after watching all the reels!! Katherine Kelly Lang is her competition here and she does amazing in Stephanie’s death bed scenes which are very constricted and all the focus is on her face. There is no movement to the scene as she sits on the bench with Stephanie as she dies. I think Julie’s scene shows a wider range in her performance and she can and does use her whole body. Julie’s scenes have movement and in my opinion better writing which allows Julie to make smart acting choices with a little… Read more »

KKL – she absolutely pulled you in to that scene and made you feel as if you were right there with them. Those two, Brooke and Stephanie, ARE the B&B, and as a fan from the beginning, it was so fitting these two were together at Stephanie’s end…This brought their story full circle. Fingers crossed KKL…

For me, Katherine Kelly Lang is the winner! She puts her heart and soul into her work and always, always delivers a winning performance! She is Bold & Beautiful!

Although KKL is the sentimental favorite, I’ll have to agree with Caitie — Julie Marie Berman’s performance is so raw and layered, you don’t even have to be a regular viewer of GH to get LuLu’s complex relationship with Luke. Although all the performances were excellent, the real surprise (for me) was Jessica Collins — wow! You could almost hear Avery’s innocence shatter like glass in that scene. But overall, Berman shines brightest.

Tough choice. I just know who I don’t want: KKL. She does most of her “acting” by squinting (just like Cady McClain). I have to say that on the end of her reel, she did do a great job of crying.

Chaz

After watching all the clips my first thought was: Everybody cries! LOL.

I know that she has been overlooked for years & years and probably KKL win win. That said, I have always liked Arianne Zucker. She is so good running the gamut of emotions. You just know that underneath the bitchiness, the anger and the crazy Nicole is just pining to be loved … and to have a child. I thought her losing this last child was just cruel. I would like to see her win.

KKL deserves the win. And after the horrible temper tantrum of Hunter Tylo, ruining Katherines. Enjoyment of this time, even more so.

Lynn it is the so called fans of these two actresses that start the temper tantrums. Brad Bell is the one who writes poor story for both ladies read Mr. Fairman’s interview with HT in January. The fans are doing a disservice to both Hunter Tylo & Katherine Kelly Lang. I feel very sorry for both ladies. If Hunter Tylo is indeed leaving it has nothing to do with KKL. It is the writing of her character since she came back when it starts becoming a chore and not a pleasure to act it is time to move on.

I vote for Arianne Zuker. I have watched Days in the past and she is the most talented one always giving a great performance.Judging just from these clips .her talent was the most prevalent. If the judges use just these clips she should win. If they are going from this is the first time KKK was nominated, shades of S. Lucci. just because they have been around a long time ,no way. If it was for crying ,they would call it a three way tie. I watch GH and JMB did not do much for me. She is OK but… Read more »

Totally agree. I know it is not popular to be negative about a long time soap star but, frankly, in my opinion there was a reason Susan Lucci was not nominated forever,,,,her acting was just not that great. She never seemed to move beyond the petulant, spoiled teenager that Erica was in 1971. To some degree I feel the same about KKL. I am not a faithful viewer of B&B and wouldn’t even turn it on once it became the Steffy/Liam/Hope show but, KKL has never seemed to mature either. Part of it could be the writers fault…Brooke just repeats… Read more »

Thanks Michael… this is a very interesting excerise! I started with this one and will do all. It is so different judgeing them all together like this. I saw all of these performances when they aired and you have your favorites and more importantly at the time of watching and with all that was there and before and after you have different feelings about what is happening… for instance with KKL… I remember being angry that she wa with SF when she was dying rather than Eric or Ridge or Pam. Those feelings skewed my impressions about the performance as… Read more »

I’m adding my thanks to Michael as well for providing this forum. Separating these performances from the shows and stories in which they aired and watching them all at one time enables us to be more objective in our choices and more understanding of the overall process. Thank you again, Mr. Fairman!

Wel said Caitie… totally agree! Having now done four… it’s very different and I can see how it would be for people judging who have not watched the shows or the actors/actresses and the stories consistently. It explains why people in the past have won over someone who you thought should have won.

Jessica Colons for the win. She is the surprise of the year and has the best reel in my opinion. I am hoping she wins.

There is a caliber of writing, directing and portrayal within a specific storyline. The scope an actor/actress delivers depend on these simple factors. In soaps – especially soaps, the “Hook” is “Emotion”. The acting delivered from each Actress was superb – each to his own. However, when a scene becomes chaotic and littered with unnecessary elements it loses depth. One Actress in particular remained true to the “Emotion” roots. Yes, death scenes are very emotional – but, to infuse that emotion in a raw, real life scenario it takes precision. To handle a storyline that is cancer driven means caution,… Read more »

I was very disappointed in all of the actress catagories because all of the women from GH that were overlooked. I believe Katherine Kelly Lang will win and she should. Not only has she been consistantly a brilliant performer, but her reel was spectacular. Susan Flannery (Stephanie) said she was going to go the Emmys this year just to see KKL win and I believe she will get to see that sight. Melissa Claire Egan is fantastic, she was overlooked many times for her work on All My Children, but I don’t see much strength in her reel. Julie Marie… Read more »

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
