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.

My heart says KKL, but my gut and head say Berman going to win

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 humor, some tears and anger. Whereas KKL’s reel is just emotion, no movement and really doesn’t allow her any range which it isn’t suppose too but up against Julie’s range of performance it’s gonna be tough for KKL to take that gold. All that being said, I am a fan of both ladies and will be happy as long as one of them wins.

KKL for the win. Hands down!

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…

Joyce

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!

RICKIE

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.

Becky

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.

JMB!

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

k/kay

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 not exceptional. I wish them all luck, and congrats to the winner, whomever she is.

Chaz

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 her ridiculous behavior again & again & again. But, I don’t find her compelling. Someone like Arianne Zucker I don’t turn away from the screen regardless of who shares her scenes…they are always riveting and must watch.

SL & KKL just didn’t seem to progress in their craft.

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 did events and circumstances with all the others. I actually stopped watching B&B after Stephanie’s death and the mess with the triangle.

I have to say GH is my fave!!! The other things I noticed about this process is clearly the writing is huge and the phenomenal people that each of these actresses played off of is also huge! Then there is the range of emotions and depth that you see in each of these performances and the feelings you feel watching them in this isolated way that all make the excerise very interesting.

I have to say that all were good performances and each of these ladies should be very proud of there work!!! However for me two stand out as being the most powerful! That would be JMB and KKL. It’s tough to pick… I could go for a tie if hey decided that… but for me they were both very powerful and very phenomemnal… and if I look at them on there own and nothing about whether they have won before or not looking at their body and years of work… I have to choose JMB. I loved Susan’s performance so much and it made me love KKL ‘s that much more… but KKL’s doesn’t have the depth and the range in that prformance that JMB’s has in hers… in my opinion. KKL appears to be the favorite so far above. I also have to mention that Tony’s performance was so great… not his best… but very strong! Oh to see… Tony and Susan some day!!! That would be interesting!

Ari would be my third place… and then Jessica and Melissa sort of tied for fourth place!

Again all should be very proud!!! I will be ecstatic if JMB wins and extremely happy if KKL wins… would love a tie for first!

This is a very tough thing to do and I might understand why some performances win when you would not think they should because of this process! Or because they are not your favorites.

I wish all of the ladies the best of luck!!! Can’t wait to see who wins!!!

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.

Reeling

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, it means you have to stay true to the issue. The Actress portraying the cancer victim along with those who play along side her must reciprocate or feel the depth of the issue themselves in order to execute each and every scene properly. Timing is key, so is the art of being subtle remembering to be careful not to be over the top, holding back a little morsel of feeling – yet maintaining vaunarablity which blooms to fruition. That being said, I found that Katherine Kelly Lang blew a breath of fresh air into what were dismal and bleak scenes (because it dealt with death). The choice of the location added to the fullness or body of the story. I have read many places where viewers were unhappy with the unlikely pairing of “Brooke & Stephaine” for this closing chapter, but it is just that- a closing chapter where two Actresses were raw and open with their acting and most of all with hardly any make up. It came full circle for the characters they play. I tip my hat to all the nominees but my choice is Katherine Kelly Lang for her raw, unparalled and humanistic portrayal. Goodluck to all.

KKL is definitely the sentimental favorite. Strong reels by both Jessica and Melissa as well.

KKL was very strong but most in this section all has strong performances. I got say wouldn’t mind if AZ snuck in a won it!

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 Berman, breaking out of Younger Actress, is clearly talented and I think the scenes she pick were spot on. If KKL was not included, I would say she would win for sure. Arianne is amazing, but I think there were better scenes she could’ve picked that show her range a bit more. Jessica Collins, I was completely baffled as to why she was even nominated. No offense, but I just don’t think she has the skills, not yet, to compete against these women and there were certainly other actresses more deserving of the nod.

Katherine Kelly Lang’s performance was outstanding,she deserves to win.KKL gave all the emotions,feelings of 25 years of B&B Stephanie and Brooke relationship with PERFECT acting that we could not help crying.Such a talent,such greatest acting.

DAYS’ Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes On Doug and Julie’s Emotional Scenes: “We Didn’t Have To Act Them. The Love Between Us Played Them For Us.”

If you have been witnessing this week’s episodes of NBC’s Days of our Lives, you know that Julie suffered a massive heart attack that has rocked Doug to his core, and has made the once invincible Julie devastated that she may not survive this medical crisis to continue her enduring love with her husband.

The heart attack which came about after Julie minced words with Gabi (Camila Banus), has given veteran stars and Lifetime Achievement Daytime Emmy Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes, some emotional and heartfelt material to play.  As everyone knows, the popular duo has been married in real-life for decades.

On their official Twitter handle DaysHayes, the couple shared this tweet to their followers: “Those scenes between Doug and Hope, and the ones between Doug and Julie were so beautifully written, we didn’t have to act them. The love between us played them for us. Thank you, Ron!”

Of course, Bill and Susan were referencing Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati for this storyline and giving them these impactful scenes to play which mean so much to them and the longtime DAYS viewing audience.

So, what have you thought about the recent Doug and Julie scenes, since Julie suffered a heart attack?  What do you think of giving vets like Bill and Susan the ball in this storyline? Comment below.

Leann chats with host Michael Fairman as she weighs-in on the latest story plot, working with her dear friend Thaao Penghlis , the men in Anna’s life through the years, and how the series has written her character over the years and more.

Later, Stacy Haiduk (Kristen) and Arianne Zucker (Nicole)  sit down with Michael and talk about the sisterhood they have formed since learning that Ari would be playing Kristen in disguise.  The dynamic duo share their thoughts on the making of, and the moment of the big reveal when John figures it all out and unmasks Kristen in front of the guests at the Jarlena wedding reception, as Brady (Eric Martsolf) is beyond duped!  In addition, both Stacy and Ari share that they are looking forward for viewers to now see the return of the real Nicole, and that Kristen will no longer be hiding under a mask, and more.
