ok..
I don’t know of any of these guys but Peter..
So, I liked this one. He is the most handsome- Vincent Irizarry (Ex-Deimos)

((I’m probably no worse than the judges, I pick who is the most handsome lol))

Peter Bergman! Billy Flynn has so much promise but it’s not his year and his chosen scenes will not convince the panel. next year Billy should submit the marriage falling apart scenes with Abby. God know, Peter won’t have worthy scenes based on Sally’s stories. Scott Clifton’s material was sub par, a bad Brad Bell story line. But he’s first rate. Nobody beats Peter this year.

Wouldn’t it be great if Mr. Irizarry finally got his EMMY for so many years of great work across the soap world!

He has an Emmy in the Supporting Category with AMC. He tied that year with someone who was on GL (and later Y&R).

No ifs, ands and buts….Billy Flynn, all the way. He, as nuChad, came in unassumingly, yet fiercely, and conquered the role with éclat. His acting is effortless; his panache gives him an air of belonging…..as if the role were tailored just for him. Peter Bergman’s Jack feeds the viewer the same fare over and over again. Steak and potatoes; which is a great meal, but, tedious and monotonous…..sometimes too chewey, LOL. Jack seemed to have turned the corner, somewhat; gain some integrity. But, acting like a hurt schoolboy over his wife’s cheating should not a monster make, at this stage… Read more »

Wow! I didn’t even remember Scott was on OLTL! I watch B&B now and I love it but I had to get used to him as Liam since I had strong memories of him as the original Dillon Quartermaine!

Billy Flynn, hands down, and I don’t even watch Days of Our Lives on a daily basis. However, when I do tune in, Billy brings his “A-Game” to Chad Dimera in every scene. I was really happy when TPTB recast the character, as the last actor was dreadful. Kudos to Billy and best of luck to him!

Totally agree. I don’t care what kind of material they give him, no one can even come close to approaching his talent. Way to go Billy.

Kristoff St John has deserved it for years. Awesome reel this year.

Runner Up goes to Vincent Irizarry. He did wonders with crazy on/off material at DAYS. Shame on DAYS for not utilizing Vincent as the stellar actor he is. He brought it even when it wasnt on the page.

If there is a fairness GH will cast Vincent as Dr David Harward in Genoa City.

I like all these guys but I have to go with Billy Flynn. There’s something about him when he is on the screen that makes me take notice. His acting chops are raw and he goes for the jugular with every performance he gives in front of the camera—he really is that good!!!

I, am ecstatic… and thrilled nonetheless…. DRUM ROLL Maurice Benard – DID NOT – make the finale I couldn’t believe when the nominations came out… all that lLaura Wright could muster is how …. “flawless” her co-worker REELS there is so much not right… w/ GH. and the blame is entirely on Jean, Shelley, and Frank Valentini.. that these three , are in fact the REAL dullard WHAT ??? do these three … see in : Sonny, Carly, Jason, Sam, Finn, Hayden, and Michael. they are the most, BORING characters… and that’s mild. they kill this show I will cry… Read more »

I really do not have , great , things, to say about any of the other nominees Peter Bergman – the show is over I haven’t watched since Sussman and Young have re-invented the wheel… as it were. last I know… you are a lost “man” who no longer befits a true Abbott. the writers have written you in to a corner. from what I’ve not read on this blog.. is neither excitement or appreciation of how challenging it is to be Jack Abbott. have you risen past the doppelganger ? are you leading the pack … where the true… Read more »

Billy Flynn all the way I enjoyed all the reels but his had all kinds of moods n phases n I just loved it. Reminds me if when James Scott should have won some odd years back but I digress. The scene where he finds out about Abby’s death broke me down. Great work Billy u deserve it.

This list of nominees is sorta weak compared to recent years…none of these reels did much of anything for me…compared to the powerhouse performances in the lead and supporting actress categories this year…or even last year’s lead actor field…and it is still ridiculous that Benard, Braeden and McCook were all snubbed after the years they had as lead actors…moving on to these just okay clips…btw why is St. John not in the supporting category?

1. Vincent

2. Bergman

3. Clifton

4. St. John

5. Flynn

Geary, Christopher, Hartley and Le Blanc all had way better reels last year.

Unfortunately St John has not had a decent story since Rowell left yes I know she is a handful but the lady can act watching Diagnosis Murder reruns she has a presence that is sorely missed.

I think all of them we’re good but by far I think Peter Bergman was the best 2nd. to that would have to be Billy Flynn.

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

Photo: JPI

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Photo: JPI

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
