WATCH: Outstanding Younger Actress Daytime Emmy Nominee Reels! Who Should Win!

This morning, NATAS posted on their official facebook page, the nominated performances in the Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series category vying for the gold at the upcoming 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards to be held in ceremonies on June 22nd!

Nominated in the category are: Hunter King (Summer) from The Young and the Restless, Kristen Alderson (Starr now Kiki) from General Hospital, Linsey Godrey (Caroline) and Kim Matula (Hope) from The Bold and the Beautiful and Kelly Missal (Dani) from One Life to Live.  Below are the synopsis of their submissions and following that their reels! Take a look at the playlist of videos below!  Then let us know, who you think deserves the win?

Kelley Missal  – One Life to Live

Sometimes there is only so much a person can take before they make a very bad choice that leads them down a dangerous road.  Dani is lost.  After mourning the death of Victor (the man she thought was her Father) who was shot by her biological father, Todd, Dani has been neglected by both her Mother and Todd. Todd left Llanview for Port Charles, and Tea was so buried in grief over the loss of her infant son, that she could not see how badly Dani was hurting.  In the previous Episode, Dani overdoses on Oxy and collapses at the opening of Blair’s new club, Shelter. Todd has come to town because Dani has been “drunk dialing” him, and he is worried about her.  He arrives just in time to see Dani collapse and picks her up and rushes her to the hospital.  Victor, back from the dead, also arrives at Shelter and sees Dani collapse.  Victor and Tea wait bedside for Dani to wake up, while Todd watches from a distance.

Linsey Godfrey  – The Bold and the Beautiful

Socialite Caroline Spencer is determined to win back the heart of her boyfriend, Forrester Creations President, Rick Forrester.  However, Rick is currently in love and in a committed relationship with Maya Avant, a woman who has pulled her life together from a sketchy past.  In her attempt to break Maya and Rick up, Caroline ensures that Maya is hired by her friend; producer Rafael, to star in a web series entitled “Room 8.”  While watching the opening titles with Rafael and Maya’s hunky co-star, Carter, Caroline is not impressed with what she sees.  She offers up her services to revamp the entire episode and comes up with a plan where she and Rafael can both be satisfied with the series.  She explains how she will intercut ‘fantasies’ and sex it up between Maya and Carter.

Kim Matula  – The Bold and the Beautiful

Always forgiving and understanding in the past when it comes to her true-love Liam Spencer and her half sister, Steffy Forrester, fashion designer Hope Logan is confident that this time she and Liam will make it to the altar without interruption from Steffy who is far away in Paris.  Unfortunately, even though she truly does own Liam’s heart, unforeseen forces are still conspiring against her.  Days before their wedding, Liam made Hope a video tribute to their love.  Having accidentally seen it when Liam was asking Steffy to send the signed annulment papers, Steffy requested Liam make one for her.  Making it clear that he doesn’t intend to reunite with her, Liam honors Steffy’s request.  Innocent enough.  Right? Well, not if you’re Quinn Fuller, who desperately wants Hope to be with her son, Liam’s half-brother, Wyatt.  Quinn finds the video that Liam sent Steffy and anonymously sends it to Hope.  The outcome is heart-wrenching.

Kristen Alderson  – General Hospital

New Year’s Eve turned out to be a head on collision of lies and truth for Starr Manning.  After being involved in a serious accident, Starr was forced to help the one person she wished was dead, Connie Falconeri.  Starr held Connie fully responsible for the death of her daughter, Hope Manning, and her boyfriend, Cole Thornhart.  Starr quickly learned that it wasn’t Connie that caused the death of Starr’s family but someone else that she thought was her friend.

Hunter King- The Young and the Restless

Summer’s parents, Nick and Phyllis, have done everything they can to discourage 18-year-old Summer’s crush on Kyle Abbott, and now she knows why: he’s her brother. Nick delivers the shocking news that he’s not her biological father. Jack Abbott, Kyle’s father, is. Reeling, Summer resists Nick’s overtures to comfort her, insisting that she has no home, no family…and her whole life has been a lie.

I’d be okay with GH hiring Kelley Missal but i can already see some posters having a problem with the casting and saying that RC and FV were hiring another former OLTL actor.Plus i don’t think GH has revealed yet what sex Nina and Sila’s baby is/was because they may want to keep their options open if and when they do bring that character on.However the character’s age will have to be in his or her early to mid 20s and probably around Kiki’s age because Nina was pregnant around the same time Ava was.

Rodd

Andrew Hass, here’s a question re: your post…Are we really sure that Ava was ever pregnant? Kiki was already an young adult when we met her. Could Kiki be Nina’s child and Ava took her to raise, in cahoots with Nina’s mother? As I write this, it seems a little improbable, but you never know on a soap.

andrew hass
Guest
andrew hass

I have the same theory that maybe Kiki is really Nina and Silas’s daughter and somehow Ava got her.I’m sure it’s Nina could give birth to a baby even though she was in a coma.However Madeline probably didn’t want the baby around because as Nina’s child he or she could be the heir to her fortune.So Madeline could have given the baby to Ava because Ava probably wanted Silas’s baby.Plus maybe Ava was pregnant but lost the baby somehow.However by then Franco may have known Ava was pregnant and Ava didn’t know how Franco would react to her losing his… Read more »

Please not Kristen Alderson. I can’t stomach her any longer. She needs acting lessons. Should not be in scenes with Maurice Benard, Jane Elliot, or Tony Geary. I don’t really know any of the other actresses. The little actress who plays Emma Scorpio Drake should be nominated, regardless of her age. She’s incredibly talented.

I AGREE! Kristen Alderson is awful, awful, awful. Yet another reason to hate GH. GH is an awful mess. But Kelley Missal makes KA look like a genius. Please don’t let her on GH. She was so bad she should never be on any TV ever again. Kim Matula should win for putting up with the actor who plays Liam. Can’t remember his name, don’t really care. He’s a former OLTL and is a truly horrible actor! Those two women are nuts for wanting him. 😉 There were so many great performances on OLTL, none of which are recognized. Viki,… Read more »

I disagree with everyone who agrees with you. Or something like that. I agree that KA is an awful actress and doesn’t deserve an award. I’m surprised she even has a job. There are so many other actresses who are more deserving of an Emmy than her.

Kim Matula. Nobody plays heartbreak and has passion like Hope and Liam. Kim Matula is great in these scenes, so is Scott Clifton. Kim is deserving of this award for her continued great work.

Jimmy
Guest

I hate to say this because I don’t like Liam at all, but everything he said to Hope was spot on. He can love her and have memories at the same time. He spent a long time with Steffy and they shared something equally as special as what he shared with Hope. She can’t expect him to wipe those memories away and be perfect for Hope because she herself is not anywhere near perfect no matter how Ally thinks of her or how Brad Bell wants to write her.

KM does not deserve the emmy. In fact, she should not have been nominated! Her emmy reel is loaded with her looking at the camera.

Kim Matulas reel made me want to give the emmy to Scott Clifton. He was way better than KM in that scene. (I guess Scott Clifton will have an “extra reel” to show his stuff…)

I want Lindsey Godfrey to win the Emmy. She is fantastic in this reel.
This reel is also kind of a breath of fresh air compared to all the drama/weepy stuff that almost always win….

Isn’t Kristen being nominated for her role as Kiki? She won last year for playing Starr.

Kristen played Starr for part of the eligibility period.Which means she could have submitted scenes as her playing Starr or Kiki.Just like Roger Howarth could have submitted scenes as either Todd or Franco and Michael Easton could have done the same because he played John or Silas on GH during 2013.

I would like to see Kelley win. She was a breakout star on the new OLTL and it would lend a lot of validity to what Prospect Park attempted. I could be on board with a repeat by Alderson. It would make up for all the years she was overlooked on OLTL. I can understand some of the initial Kiki bashing…the character was horribly written…but the hate aimed at Alderson herself has been vicious and misdirected. She has grown up before our eyes and always delivered whatever has been asked of her including handling some very demanding storylines from a… Read more »

I think several of the actresses suffered from being upstaged by their co-stars. Scott Clifton seemed more front and center in Kim Matula’s reel than Kim herself. I also think KA’s reel suffered from way too much clutter from at least 10 other characters and too many short scenes cuts where she barely had a line or two. I was very surprised that she submitted as Starr too. I’m not sure that will help her. I didn’t care for the campy, cartoonish tone of Linsey Godfrey’s reel at all. I’d put her at the bottom of the list. That leaves… Read more »

Kelly Misal will probably win but she faces stiff competition from Hunter King and Kristen Alderson,

Not to diminish the work of Ms Godfrey, but how did this reel earn her a nomination??

The actress that played Kristina over at GH, should have been nominated instead for her fine work during the submitting period! I guess GH did not submit a good tape of her work?!

Kelley Missal is truly deserving of a win in this category. Her reel is so far above the other nominees that it is laughable. She really grew up and brought a mature performance, well beyond her years, showing an abundance of range as well. Unfortunately, Hunter King will win. Her name was front and center this year, being heard on various news outlets that normally don’t even mention soaps. Publicity is publicity and, sadly, I think that will shine more than actual talent (which, compared to other nominees, she is lacking) and she will win. Hope she thanks TMZ in… Read more »

Personally, I’m not a fan of Linsey Godfrey. She’s whinny and prissy and too over-the-top. Kim Matula is the the same way, but her form of over-the-top is her constant weeping and crying.

My list is:
1. Kelley Missal & Hunter King
2. Kristen Alderson
3. Kim Matula
4. Linsey Godfrey

Why wasn’t Jacqueline MacInnes Wood in the running for this? Her scenes when she lost her baby were some of the best scenes she’s ever had, and her scenes with Heather Tom and Hunter Tylo were fantastic.

Looking at the reels they chose it is Hunter King by a landslide because she was smart enough to pick a reel where it showcased her. This should be a no brainer!

Not necessarily..
The judges need to see what they are acting in context to the scene ..
To see how they are acting expressing themselves to the situations around them..
And to see them preform next to the Stars..

Kim Matula’s reel was overshadowed by Scott Clifton, he was amazing in that scene! Whereas, Hunter’s scene was about her, not Joshua Morrow.

If I got to vote I’d cast for Linsey G. on B&B and Bryan Craig on GH. Good luck all!

Personally I can’t stand either of them. Back when Caroline was cast, I always thought the show should have cast Chrishell Stause in the role. Linsey is very whinny and prissy and all around annoying, I know that’s how her character is supposed to be but it’s not good when viewers are fast forwarding through every scene with a certain actor/character in them. That’s what I did when Caroline was acting crazy. As for Bryan Craig, he just doesn’t measure up, IMO, to Maurice Benard or Chad Duell. Chad has really grown on me since his debut, back then he… Read more »

I see it completely different. Usually younger actors are irritating to me at first but then slow grow on me. But something about Bryan Craig had me hooked from day 1. I think he is such a talented young man. I really enjoy all his scenes. And I find Linsey to be great at playing multiple side of the character. She manages to make Caroline sympathetic while playing out so much humor. I’m impressed by her as well.

They were all strong reels– I would happy with any one they chose– I think the one with the least chance is Linsey’s simply because it was a lighthearted piece– she was great in it, but most times the emmy goes to a really dramatic scene that involves the actress crying and expressing anger– so out of the reels submitted I think Hunter King has the slight edge in that department. For me this one is too close to call outright.

Sry to say, but hope its anyone BUT hunter king unfortunetly… Not impressed with the storylines and wardrobe tthey have writtten and gave for her character. For examble, the “bra” scene with “kyle” was cheesy and led to nowhere and if anything may have caused trouble for her

Tony
Guest

KA is the only actress in this category with series acting chops and she had the material to play as Starr. Runner up is the actress who plays Dani. None of the others can touch those two in these clips. The irony is that Josh Morrow is the riveting performer in the Summer scenes as is Scott Clifton as Liam.

of these, I like Kristen’s the best. I wouldn’t have picked those scenes for Kelly Missal…. those scenes were more interesting of the Manning boys than her. Especially since we hadn’t seen Victor for so long.

Not sure what I’d pick for her, but there were many scenes where she was in catflight mode with the mystery gal that Mathew was dating, or the earlier scenes where she was drugged up and rushed to ER, then skip forward to the scenes with Michelle and the Arturo guy.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
