I want;

Bradford Anderson/Damien Spinelli .. GH

Spinelli is not a replaceable character, Spin is onto his own..
It is a difficult character to play and Bradford portrays Spinelli with perfection..

I’d vote for Spinelli/Bradford !!

Eric martsolf and steve burton have the best reels. Don’t count out bradford anderson

Bradford is my first choice and Eric is my second…would be nice to see Dominic win…Dominic and Scott tie in 3rd…no to Steve, sorry Dullan…lol

I have nothing against the other 4 nominees in this category and i think they are all good actors but i want Bradford Anderson to win the Emmy.I think last year Bradford did his best work ever.

Johnny

I am torn. Eric Martsolf is one of the most underrated actors on soaps. He elevates the material he is given. I would like to see him win. But Bradford did some really outstanding work during the baby mess and really knocked everyone’s socks off. Either one would be good.

Dominic Zamprogna for the win, followed by Bradford Anderson. Very strong performances on a constant basis.

Dominic Zamprogna – General Hospital should win for his stand out performances this year. If, I had another actor it would be hands down Michael Mulney.- ? for his role as Adam Newman on Y &R. Sadly, the events prevent him from qualifying.

andrew hass

If Michael Muhney had been eligible i think he would be in the Lead Actor category and not Supporting Actor.I hope Bradford Anderson wins but GH has a 40% chance the winner will come from their show.

Eric Martsolf most definitely

I like Scott Clifton (Liam) and Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) but I hope Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) wins this award. He is such a delight to watch and I love his character.

Bradford should win this year.

Based on the scenes submitted, I would say Bradford Anderson should win. Loved his performance in that episode. That was really some of the best work he did during his entire run on GH. I thought Dominic Zamprogna could have submitted something better. That was kind of just a basic scene of a conversation between Dante and Sonny. Scott Clifton was also very good. Steve Burton and Eric Martsolf didn’t do much for me.

Sand

JASON THOMPSON (GH) Patrick should have been in this line up – he’s had an amazing year in front burner status – Steve Burton shouldn’t be in this line up at ALL!

In my perfect world it would be a tie between Dominic and Bradford. Both did excellent work with material that, for this viewer, was aggravating in terms of twisting characters to fit the plot put together by this particular headwriter. Kudos to both for their stellar efforts. At present, I miss Mr. Andersons’ presence on GH, but am glad that he is free from this mess of a show.

@ Sand-Jason Thompson is nominated in the Lead Actor category.

MM.. Adam should have been nominated and would have won hands down- Yes, he respectivly pulled himself out but I really wanted to see him win.
I still want to support Y&R so i’m gonna say Steve Burton for DYLAN ( Didn’t really follow him as Jason on GH but know he apparently did better?). Anyway, loving his song “you killed romeo”!

Jeff

Bradford Anderson for me.

Mary SF

Again using my tied and true method that the emmy goes to the best crier and or expression of anger I would have to say it is a toss up between Bradford and Steve. Dominic teared up but not much and he didn’t yell. Eric expressed his anger well, but he only had one tear– and it looked like the kind the makeup department gives you. Scott had that one scene that was outstanding for anger, but his tears weren’t as impressive as Bradford or Steve’s– so out my two leading choices I think this might be Bradford’s year. If he fails to get the nod, it won’t be because his performance was lacking, it will be because he was on the wrong show–he might get snubbed simply because GH has been snubbed in major areas.

Clifton…but he won last year.

I love this category because all the performances are rock solid!!! It is a very close competition!!! And the winner is…ERIC MARTSOLF!

#2. Bradford Anderson
#3. Scott Clifton
#4. Steve Burton
#5. Dominic Zamprogna

I tried to be objective.

Blake Berris.

Oh wait…..

God I love him.

Nikki

I’m still extremely sad that Blake Berris was not nominated in this category, he had one of the best performances in 2013.

I’m rooting for Bradford. I’ve never been a particular fan of him or Spinelli, however, in the past year, I believe he earned this nod. He gave a very strong performance. Dominic turned in a great reel, as did Eric, though, albeitly, I think he had better moments to choose from, so I wouldn’t be surprised, nor sad, if they won.

I’ve always loved Scott Clifton and I think he’s a great actor, but I believe that his reel was a bit overshadowed by Don and Jacqui. But it was still great, so who knows.

I still do not understand why Steve Burton was nominated. I’m sorry. I know he has some very passionate fans and, obviously, he’s loved by JFP and his co-stars, but I don’t understand how his one-note performances are nominated against other’s who show a bit more range, versatility, and raw emotion. His acting is very forced to me, very mechanical.

Blake could still be nominated next year im certain…and im still hoping he returns to Days as his identical twin brother Rick Fallon!!!

A tie between Clifton and Anderson. I liked Burton as Jason QUARTERMAINE, but every time I try to watch Y&R, it’s just Dylan standing around looking dumb/confused/dazed.

Patrick

#1 Eric Martsolf : he just has not let up…. since his star turn with Eileen Davidson…. going from being in love…. to anger… to relapse…. and now funning it up with Theresa… and not giving a danged who in Salem…. crusades … love to see how he is so over the charades of do good… he can handle it….I have fun with him . I’m certain with Kristen coming home… fireworks, mayhem, charged amped up testosterone MANIA… YES… currently, I hope he goes back to Theresa… as this will only bring more drama… with Eve as well.

#2 Bradford Anderson : I loved his scenes at the hospital, when he found at Georgia was his…. the betrayal of Maxie… and learning he’s a father… was terrific…. now that he’s not on the show… it kinda lessens my wanting him to win.

#3 Dominic Zamprogna : I have been affected by his performance…. what person doesn’t want Dante, as husband material… ooh la la… more than that… all the pre-requisites… desired…. and he’s got it all.

APB : all points bulletin… I’ve loved how much Dante has taken hold and fired up his being in Port Charles…. he really amps up Sonny’ part of the pie…. since the biggest blunder of letting go Kelly Sullivan…. by the current regime… it’s thanks to Dominic Zamprogna that he’s carrying a big part of GH. he’s a father… loving it

#4 Scott Clifton : kudos to him for making a name for himself… the emmy panel seems to like him… he certainly splashed in GH. I don’t watch B&B. I don’t think he’s a wasted spot for more deserving… just should not win this year

#5 Steve Burton : watching him on Y&R makes you realize… just how good he was on GH… by being their… and NOT talking…. his solid take on GH was worthwhile…. now he has to ply his craft and ACT…. I don’t see it…. he’s lucky he’s got Ray Wise for a dad.

Pre-Nods who didn’t make the cut

DAYS : Wally Kurth : Justin
DAYS : Blake Berris : Nick
DAYS : Greg Vaughan : Eric

Lucas, Stefano, Victor should be mentioned… ALL the men on DAYS stir

I have to give these three props… who made the pre-nom… LOVE their work

I so want EM’ Brady to WIN…. I’d be just as celebratory if DZ’ Dante took it home.

tough category

Burton works with what he’s dealt. He is a darn good actor regardless of what anyone says. I love his cool laid back style. When it’s time for him to shoot for the rooftop he can do it. He’s a very versatile actor and I want him to win.

scyren

I agree with you.

Omar

Its finally Bradford time!!!! He should win!!

He really had the best reel.

Emmy blue panel judges are conservative ( or lazy) and always stick to the same formula, so it gives Clifton the edge.

Martsolf has a good chance too!

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
