Today NATAS has released the first of six daytime drama acting category reels for soap fans to view the nominated work and performances by some of their favorite daytime drama performers in contention for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards to be handed out on June 22nd!

In the first category of submissions revealed on the Daytime Emmys Official Facebook Page, you watch the nominees in the Outstanding Younger Actor categories.

Below are the nominees who include General Hospital’s Chad Duell and Bryan Craig, The Young and the Restless Max Ehrich and Daniel Polo and former Days of our Lives star, Chandler Massey with a synopsis of their Emmy submission, followed by the playlist of the scenes that won these gents a nomination!

Chad Duell  -General Hospital

Michael Corinthos considered having 2 dads a good thing. He was raised by Sonny Corinthos.  Michael’s bio dad, AJ  recent return to Port Charles allowed Michael to get to know his other dad. While Sonny & AJ never got along, they both loved Michael. Sonny faced a massive tragedy when his girlfriend, Connie Falconeri was brutally murdered. Before Connie died, she wrote the letters “AJ” in blood. Sonny’s anger drove him to seek revenge against AJ. Michael would be the only one that could stop Sonny.

Bryan Craig – General Hospital

Morgan Corinthos returned to Port Charles with his girlfriend, Kiki Jerome after a run in with an online gambling ring. Kiki learned from her mother, Ava Jerome that she was related to the wealthy Quartermaine family. Morgan & Kiki soon made themselves at home at the Quartermaine estate. Morgan’s older brother, Michael Corinthos ound he was drawn to Kiki. While Kiki felt something for Michael, they knew it could never be since they were Quartermaine cousins! Morgan learned that Kiki wasn’t related to the Quartermaine family. To keep his relationship intact, he quickly married Kiki before the truth was revealed in the local press. Morgan also turned to his father, Sonny Corinthos and begged him to keep Morgan’s secret: that Morgan knew Kiki was not a Quartermaine before the story was published. Ava & Sonny decided to throw Morgan & Kiki a wedding reception. Unbeknownst to Morgan, Sonny was no longer taking his medication and therefore capable of doing and saying anything at any time…

Max Ehrich  – The Young and the Restless

The affair that Fenmore’s mother, Lauren, had with Carmine Basco has been over for a while, yet the scorned ex-lover has repeatedly harassed the family, including showing a sex tape of Lauren at an event in her honor.  Fen races out of the event in horror; he wakes up the next morning with no memory of the night before.  Lauren breaks the news that Carmine was found shot dead in the alley and slowly Fenmore comes to a realization: he could be a murderer.

Chandler Massey – Days of our Lives

Will professes his love for his unborn daughter to his true love Sonny.  And expresses his desire to raise his daughter in a healthy happy family

Daniel Polo – The Young and the Restless

A juvenile delinquent with a troubled home life, Jamie Vernon already had a lot to handle. And then high school classmate Summer began harassing him online. Summer’s friend Fen condemned Summer’s behavior at first, but when Summer discovered she actually liked Jamie and Fen’s father took an interest in the boy – even letting him move in after trouble at his foster home – a jealous Fen took over the cyberbullying. When Jamie is found unconscious after falling from a roof, he refuses to say what happened but the evidence implicates Fen. Fen’s parents, Summer, and Police Chief Paul Williams question Jamie about the incident…and they may not like his answers.

Now below watch the nominated performances in a playlist that includes all of the scenes! Then weigh-in!  Who should get the gold?

Sharon Case has fallen out of favor with the Emmy panel. She hasn’t been nominated for an Emmy in eleven years.

Besides, this thread is about Outstanding Younger Actor so why get off topic girlfriend?

Max is fantastic but CHANDLER MASSEY went above and beyond with his role as Will and the gay storyline. I know a lot of people are not fans of that storyline, but regardless, Chandler’s performance was OUTSTANDING! He is sorely missed on DAYS!

It’s going to be between Bryan Craig and Max Ehrich. The others don’t stand a chance. Chad Duell and Chandler Massey’s reels were very weak and I couldn’t see Daniel Polo’s at all.

without a doubt..
The gold will go to one of the The Corinthos brothers.. GH

Bryan Craig/Morgan Corinthos – General Hospital

Chad Duell/Michael Corinthos -General Hospital

Both are powerful actors…
It will be a toss-up ..

As much as I adore Chandler Massey and Chad Duell, I truly see Bryan Craign as the winner in this category. He made me feel that rejection, that Sonny chose his brother over him. Daniel Polo was also very effective.

I wish all 5 actors luck and let the best one win.Now here’s my order of who i think will win:1Chandler Massey.2 Max Ehrich.3 Bryan Craig.4 Chad Duell.5 Daniel Polo.However i think Chandler,Max and Bryan might be the favorites.GH has a 40 percent of one of their actors winning.

I watched all five of the reels, and I think Bryan Craig from GH was by far the best. Those scenes with Maurice Benard were so powerful that Maurice could have have submitted them for his own Emmy reel, cause he was fantastic, as well. I would rate Chandler Massey second. I thought Chad Duell could have definitely picked some better scenes. The two from Y&R didn’t do much for me personally.

I dove into the viewing with the idea of not wanting Chandler Massey to be the best because he is no longer with DAYS. And the winner is…CHANDLER MASSEY!

I should add:

In the future, all acting categories should contain at least one performer from each soap, a true celebration of the genre!!! The writing, directing and show categories should also contain all the soaps!!!!!!

With four soaps left, it is idiotic not to have a full representation!!!

As for favorite daytime drama…And the winner is…DAYS OF OUR LIVES!!!!!!!!!!

I do not watch B&B. Does anybody care to suggest whom from B&B should have been included in the Outstanding Younger Actor category?

andrew hass
Guest
andrew hass

That might be a little hard because i think the younger actor and actress categories have an age limit of 25 or younger.However Chad Duell will be 27 this coming September.So maybe they raised the age limit to 27 or so.As for the other actor’s ages Bryan will be 23 in September,Chandler will be 24 in September also,Max will 23 next month and Daniel is about 18/19.Yeah in a perfect world every soap would have a nominee in every category but that may not always be the case.

you could clearly see the maturity level of said nominees. Chandler Massey : is a pedigree unto himself… he naturally ensconced… pulls you with… he could have been straight or “gay”… so be it.. he is real far and away: the clear winner my sincerely, big wish : Freddie Smith… Days’ Sonny : be acknowledged all the accolades given CM are because Freddie Smith was with him… every step of the way my outa the box… surpise win: as he’s new to the scenery and has shown strength growth and prow… Bryan Craig. he more than catapulted his belong.. with… Read more »

I was honestly trying not to let my bias filter in. I only watch GH, so I was completely unfamiliar with the other three actors and their stories. I had heard phenomenal things about CM, but that reel was not strong at all. The two Y&R guys were okay, but I really wasn’t that impressed. I thought Max Ehrlich was probably a little better overall, but I still don’t feel he’s that strong an actor. Tracey E. Bregman completely overshadowed him. Daniel Polo, it’s just not there. Chad Duell is a decent actor, but he just doesn’t quite measure up… Read more »

Max Ehrich or Daniel Polo…Y&R. Got to stick with my soap and Fen’ did a good job in his storyline, and I also felt for jamies’ chracter as well.

Based on these reels alone, I’d choose Daniel Polo from Y&R. I thought Max Ehrich had better work than was submitted. If not Polo, then Chandler Massey from DOOL has my vote. The two guys from GH got overshadowed by Maurice Benard’s over-the-top acting.

I agree that 2013 was Bryan Craig’s year. He completely blew me away in many episodes. However, his Emmy submission wasn’t one of those eps. I think he has a couple of good ~moments, but overall I think that he absolutely chose the wrong tape for submission. I think that Chad outshines him in the scenes, and it is just an over-the-top, hysterical, clearly “Emmy bait” episode that really doesn’t measure up. I wish he had chosen the episode where Morgan admits the truth to Sonny and asks him to keep the secret. That episode was much quieter and shows… Read more »

I also think that this race might be very close and in the end i think 4 out of the 5 have equal chances of winning the Emmy and they are Bryan,Chandler,Chad and Max.I have nothing against Daniel Polo but he was only Y&R for first 3 months of 2013 i think.Plus i don’t think Daniel submitted the best episode he could and maybe the one he should have submitted was the one where Jamie tries to commit suicide by jumping off the roof.Plus i do agree that there were other younger actors that should have been nominated also including… Read more »

I predicted Bryan Craig would win this category since his scenes last summer and I’m sticking to that. He is BRILLIANT and far better than some of the other nominees (looking at you, one-tone Max Ehrich!), though he may have competition in repeated winner Chandler Massey. But I’m rooting for Bryan and I believe he’ll bring in a win.

Based on experience I’ve noticed the emmy seems to go the actor who yells or cries the best– so after watching the reels I say since Bryan Craig did both, and extremely well, my money is on his performance being the one chosen as the most outstanding of the bunch. Although Emmy panels do love a cause– so Daniel Polo bullying storyline might get the nod even if the performance only had yelling at the end and no tears. Also the Emmy panels tends to vote for former winners and Chandler did have a good crying scene, so he has… Read more »

Bryan Craig showed so many different emotions in his reel. Sadness, Anger, Love, Jealousy, Regret, and Fear. No one else showed that kind of range. I think that emmy is his.

I really love that we can watch the clips and see what the judges see. Honestly, if I didn’t know differently I could believe both Bryan Craig’s and Chad Duell’s reels were actually Maurice Benard’s submissions. And am I seeing things or did CD submit two nearly identical scenes? I ‘d put both at the bottom of the pack with a slight edge to BC. Both were over shadowed by their co stars. Chandler Massey was good but the reel was so short it made me wonder why he didn’t have anything else. Daniel Polo was also good. His made… Read more »

I would say Chad Duell but the writing for much of his scene was so bad and so Sonny propping it can’t even allow me to see his talent. Here the man who kidnapped him as a child is going to execute his biological father in cold blood…and he is forced to say lines like “I respect you dad. You were a great father”. Blah blah blah. Sickening. For consistency I would say Duell. He is a reliable actor who keeps Michael a likeable character. For growth as an actor I would say Bryan Craig. Chandler has two..he is gone…enough.… Read more »

This is a pretty strong category.

Why were the GH reels so long? And DAYS so short?

I’m thinking this is Max’s year. I did like Daniel’s as well, but he went more understated. The two GH guys were pretty good as well.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
