Eric Martsolf – Days of our Lives

As his addiction to drugs and alcohol steadily worsens, Brady Black finds himself confronted by his friends and family. Determined to blame everyone else in his life for his “habit”, he lashes out at the very loved ones dedicated to see him through his torturous and self-destructive lifestyle.”

Scott Clifton  – The Bold and the Beautiful

Heartbroken and anguished at the loss of his unborn child due to a tragic traffic accident, Liam turns to his father, the powerful Bill Spencer. Bill urges Liam to go ahead and let out all of his feelings, but not to his wife Steffy who is still in the hospital recovering. He urges Liam to say everything he wants to say to Steffy to him instead. In a heart-wrenching scene, Liam unleashes a torrent of emotion about his wife, his life, and the child he will never know, to his father. Later, Liam arrives at the hospital to take Steffy home.  Upon arriving at the cliff house, Liam warns Steffy that nursery items are still inside.  Wallowing in her own pain, Steffy turns to her husband and tells him to burn everything.

Bradford Anderson  – General Hospital

Damien Spinelli believed that his girlfriend, Ellie Trout decided to end their relationship on New Years’ Eve. Heartbroken and drunk, Spinelli turned to former lover/always a friend, Maxie Jones for a night of consolation sex. Spinelli soon learned that Ellie was involved in a terrible accident while on her way to see Spinelli. Spinelli & Maxie agreed to never speak of their indiscretion again. As Maxie’s surrogate pregnancy progressed, Ellie became suspicious of Maxie and soon learned Maxie’s secret. The day had come for Maxie to give birth to her best friend, Lulu Spencer & her husband, Dante Falconeri’s baby. Ellie knew that it was time that Spinelli learned the truth regarding Maxie & the baby!!

Dominic Zamprogna – General Hospital

2013 was to be a banner year for Dante Falconeri.  He & his wife, Lulu Spencer were expecting their first child via a surrogate, Maxie Jones.  But Lulu was kidnapped by psychopath, Stavros Cassadine.  Dante, along with Lulu’s parents, Luke and Laura rescued Lulu but quickly discovered that Lulu had amnesia! Dante wasn’t going to give up on his love and soon Lulu’s memory returned. Lulu & Dante welcomed their daughter, Connie into the world. Connie’s true maternity & paternity were revealed at Connie’s christening sending the Dante & Lulu into court to battle Maxie and Damien Spinelli for custody. Dante & Lulu lost the case and their daughter. Dante doesn’t know what will come next when it comes to his marriage and family with Lulu.

Steve Burton -The Young and the Restless

Dylan’s plans to leave town are shelved when one-night-stand Chelsea tells him she is carrying his baby. Virtual strangers at first, Chelsea and Dylan fall in love and marry, baby Connor is born, and the little family is blissfully happy until Chelsea is forced to confess the truth: Connor is really her ex-husband’s child, not Dylan’s, and she knew it all along. She tries to convince Dylan that nothing needs to change and pleads with him to stay – but will he listen?

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 !!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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”!

Bradford Anderson for me.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

#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… Read more »

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.

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!

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

While Abe revisits the past, he will meet up with his late wife and love of his life, Lexie, only according to Soap Opera Digest, Renee Jones was not available to be a part of the milestone episode. So, in a pivot another actress was brought in.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

Check out the latest NBC promo featuring Abe’s life hanging in the balance below.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Photo: NBC

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
