For me the night was ruined by Heather Tom’s ridiculous win for Best Actress ): I am so heartbroken! Once again Maura West is robbed! Heather Tom was hardly on B&B during 2019 and we’ve seen her shtick time and time again. I really hope she will stop submitting from now on. Glad for Jason Thompson, Tamara Braun, Olivia Rose Keegan, and Eva LaRue, and GH’s Directing Team win, but Y&R had a lackluster year – I think GH shot it’s chances by submitting that weird Christmas Carol episode and should have just done back to back Oscar’s death episodes… Read more »

Agree on the Heather Tom win, I’m sorry but lets be truthful here, she wins because she what a good cryer? every time she wins if you look at the reels all she’s doing is crying dramatically. At this point you can’t fault her, she’s figure out what makes the dumb voting panel whose easily manipulated. Somebody told them, if someone cries that’s really hard and emotional to do so reward them, lol, omg. I’ll be truthful I was bias and would of been happy with Any of the two GH leading ladies winning but also to note its scrary… Read more »

Congratulations to #YR on a big night for the show. 8 trophies is nothing to sneeze at. My three jaw drppers were #YR not snagging Special Class Special, #BandB winning Writing (which #YR should have won) and Christel Khalil not winning Supporting Actress.

I was stunned KSJ’s tribute didn’t win Special Class Special but I had a feeling Sesame Street 50th would be their threat.

I was disappointed Christel Khalil didn’t win but Tamara Braun was the favorite to win.

I’m cool with B&B winning Writing. The baby Beth reveal was Writing.

As much as I still watch Y&R, I just can’t believe they won for Outstanding Drama. So much of the show is unwatchable and has been for years. I would have gone for B&B or DAYS but I’m not on the “blue ribbon panel” so…

And so, the annual travesty known as the Daytime Emmy Awards saunters on…

Nominating shows for Drama Series in a number of categories for which there is a pool of only four possibilities is the height of absurdity.

No award for DOOL other than Outstanding Music Direction and Composition?

Another win for Heather Tom? Really?

And is it truly acting when, as an actor, you’re eulogizing a character, played by another actor who tragically passed away, an actor who has been your screen partner (and ostensibly friend) for many years for whom you have personally been mourning?

I’m commenting specifically on your last point: “And is it truly acting when, as an actor, you’re eulogizing a character, played by another actor who tragically passed away, an actor who has been your screen partner (and ostensibly friend) for many years for whom you have personally been mourning?” This is obviously directed against Bryton James’s win for Best Supporting Actor. Yes, his reel BEGAN with a scene from Neil’s funeral – scenes we all knew brought back feelings associated with Kristoff’s death. However, this was only ONE SCENE of SIX included in Bryton’s Emmy reel. It simply set the… Read more »

I expected Bryton James to win but I disagreed with the choice and was really disappointed. I was so hoping they would come to their senses and the panelists would recognize great acting: Chandler Massey or Paul Telfer! I find Devon to be a boring and dull character, I never enjoy his acting. Competence shouldn’t win Emmys, great acting ought to win. I read what was in Bryton James’s reel and saw those scenes – I believe he won not due to his acting but for other reasons entirely. I think these panelists really need to watch more daytime television.… Read more »

Hello Aurora! And Bam! You really put me in my place! And quite respectful while doing so. Sincerely, I appreciate your reply, as you have not only provided a differing view, you have eloquently and comprehensively backed up your premise. In my defense, it seems that the success of Y&R at the Emmys this year is, in large part, an emotional reaction to the sad and tragic death of Kristoff St. John. We’ve seen countless emotional reactions pervade many an awards show of multiple genres. Also, many awards shows tend to reward the same actors/actresses repeatedly with wins and nominations… Read more »

The sentimental vote is the reason he won. Bryton was not the best actor in the category. As for the full reel, I am sure it had other scenes, but the clip that was released to the public was all about Neil’s funeral. It was the real life grief talking in those scenes for him instead of acting. Isn’t that fair to say, CR?

Caitie
Guest
Caitie

Not really because, as I said to James: “One futher point about “acting” grief where emotions echo such a real-life experience: Perhaps, because these emotions are so real and so raw, the acting challenge is in delivering them in character rather than as yourself.” This is what I saw Bryton doing – feeling deeply for his (Bryton’s loss) of Kristoff but working even harder as an actor to deliver his eulogy as his character Devon expressing grief for his loss of Neil – NOT as Bryton. Overcoming one’s natural expression of emotion to react IN CHARACTER requires even greater acting… Read more »

Jason Thompson’s win was a LONG time coming. He’s a fantastic actor that was robbed time and again on GH. He turns in consistently solid performances and can make the best out of any material he’s given.

As for Heather Tom, she’s also a fantastic actor, but I don’t think she deserved the win this year. Maura West was robbed after giving such phenomenal performances during the Kevin/Ryan story. This is like what happened a few years ago when Eileen Davidson won instead of Nancy Lee Grahn, who clearly deserved the win that year.

I was most disappointed that Jon Lindstrom and Eden McCoy didn’t win. I thought it was Eden’s year with the scenes surrounding Oscar’s death, which she was tremendous in. Congrats to Tamara Braun, btw. This was a reminder of how good she can be, but also of how much GH wasted her talents for most of her tenure this go around. Was really rooting hard for Jon Lindstrom after he didn’t win last year. I’m happy for Jason Thompson, he’s deserved an Emmy for years since his days on GH. But it’s a real shame that Jon gets totally shutout… Read more »

I felt the exact same way. The problem is these panelists don’t watch the shows so they don’t know that Heather Tom was hardly on her show in 2019. I too was rooting for Jon Lindstrom, Eden McCoy and MAURA WEST, with Arianne Zucker another acceptable choice. JT ought to have won for playing Dr. Patrick Drake but at least he did excellent work. I was really upset with the merging of the younger acting categories. This robbed William Lipton and/or Garen Stitt from an Emmy – but knowing what poor choices the panelists make they would have screwed that… Read more »

Agree 100%. I despise that they merged the younger acting categories. Don’t recall anyone clamoring for that change to be made. They tried to fix something that wasn’t broken and in the process the guys ended up getting excluded. William Lipton and Garren Stitt should have definitely both been nominated, and it was an outright travesty that neither was. If there was one thing I could tell the Emmy producers, it would be to reverse this stupid, unnecessary change they made, and give the younger guys and girls their own categories again next year. Let’s be honest, Maura could win… Read more »

Freeman – I agree 100%. Y&R has gone downhill, so seeing them get all those awards was quite comical. The GH actors you mention had far more impressive scenes throughout the year. This is why I ignore these awards.

Where do you begin. Bold and Beautiful should have won Best Drama along with their win for Best Writing. Bell did a great job with the Baby Beth storyline hands down! It brought practically the entire cast into the storyline and had a very dramatic ending. If not Bold, then General Hospital should have won Best Drama with the Kevin/Ryan murder storyline, the baby swap storyline featuring Michael’s real child and the death of popular character Oscar. But I agree that the Scrooge feature was not the best reel and GH was still able to nab Best Directing. Jon Lindstrom… Read more »

I was thrilled to see all the wins for Y&R – (too bad Gina T) was replaced during this time period. Had she not been replaced I am sure she would have been nominated again. Big fan of Bold & Beautiful, however, Heather Tom really, how many times does she need to put her name in, we got it you won a lot, but give others a chance. I was really hoping Katherine Kelly Lang would win, she’s was due after being on the show since day one and her acting is just as good as Heather’s . Lang was… Read more »

Ms. Olivia Rose Keegan. “MY” Star…. nest graduate

she’s marvel’ous to watch… it took three years in a row nominated… so be it

respectively, she “lost” out to :

2018 Chloe Lanier, Nelle @GH
2019 Hayley Erin, Kiki @GH

WANT THIS TO BE KNOWN: @Josselyn, Eden McCoy, does not deserve to win an emmy. Thankfully, those “better” years are behind her… YES @Oscar made her better.. a maturity. no more… she’s bland just like momma

Olivia Rose Keegan ! you ring it up … you delight, for a newbie… stronghold

Jason Thompson , is a delight to the senses… YEAH, He triggers I mostly know him from @General Hospital… dag didn’t he swag man up before settling down with Robin … Dr. Drake any one !?!?

I enjoyed the show & thought they did a great job considering circumstances. As I try to support 3/4 remaining shows, never been a B/B fan, I think for the most part selections were good. I do agree with Maura West not winning; she never takes a scene off. Days acting is almost like watching actors in an over the top Monty Python movies at times, too melodramatic and with the writing, I’m not surprised they didn’t win. Do think next year, Stephen Nichols will be a front runner for leading actor for Days, he has been putting on a… Read more »
