    Wow……………Y&R really cleaned up the nominations!

    Why are you getting mad at the show? Ms Case submitted a reel, she got a pre nom. It was the final panel from the Academy that decided on the nominations, and it will be members of the Academy that will vote for the winner. It has nothing to do with the show. If you want to protest something — don’t watch the Emmy broadcast, complaini about the way nominations are selected, but don’t stop watching the show, that is a little like cutting off your nose to spite your face.

    WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS !!!!!!!!!!!! SHARON CASE IS THE BEST OF THE BEST! NO ONE DESERVES BEST ACTRESS MORE THAN HER. YET YOU HAVE THESE FOOLS LIKE MCE AND JESSICIA C. AVERY AND CHELSEA WHO MAKE THE SHOW SUCK #BULLSHIT! DONE!

    Yeah what about Sharon case she has really delivered that time she was on the run and that lady took her car wrecked and got killed and when Sharon was in the diner and saw it on the news that look on her face was classic and where she burned down victors house. Then again not all actors submit their work for an emmy I know Robin Strasser from one life to live doesn’t.

    You forgot Sharon Newman aka Sharon Case! That is the winner! She was outstanding! She was put through more than I have every seen in 34 years of soaps. What a fantastic actress.

    In the Supporting I will be real shocked if KKL does not take this one home if she had put herself in lead she would of had to go up against Flannery I am sure that is why she put herself in supporting. I can’t see where ME or JC had the material to get the nomination. I guess cooking class and crayons were the motive yuck.

    Mary SF replied

    Doug Davidson didn’t get snubbed- he is on the list for Best Performance by a Lead Actor– Hopes he wins it– he deserves it.

    It’s almost 35 years I’m watching Y&R. It most definitely was Sharon Case’s year. This was supposed to be her second win! Very disappointed in what is going on. MCE and JC who play Chelsea and Avery are the worst characters I can’t even deal with it. :( :(

I’ve never seen anything like this. I know sometimes the deserving actors get snubbed but that’s because the nominations went to other shows, not their own shows rejects! Someone’s dropping acid.

    There must be a conspiracy against GH’s powerhouse cast taking home any Emmy’s and instead if flat out snubbing the show they took the sneaky route and nominated everyone who thru their name in the ring with no reel to back it up. The panels obviously on crack.

    They threw Sharon Case under the bus after giving her the lousiest roles in daytime history. She gave her all to the garbage and this is what she get. Only to be overlooked because Stafford is their golden girl. This has got to stop and believe me it will. There’s an old saying and so very true. You reap what you sow. Stafford has done nothing this past year that is deserving of an emmy nod. It’s favortism. Something has to change. Case has been done wrong for way too long and it needs to stop. She is an outstanding actress and she deserves better writing than what they have been giving her. With the slop they have given her lately she deserves better than to be tossed aside like yesterday’s news.

    Chrissy replied

    I agree. Sharon Case was so robbed! So sad what they did. She had this with a land slid. She gave a very diverse performance ever this past year and she keeps giving it to us. Im a fan 35 yrs with this show and I know she was supposed to win best actress. We all know what is going on here! :(

    Congratulations to Michelle Stafford. So we’ll deserved! She has been backbenched since new regime arrived and yet she is BOSS. So richly deserving. I could watch her read the phone book. I was looking forward to self entitlement seething rage from Muhney but he got nominated.
    Now we have to live with his grandiose of perceived greatness. Loved that Jason, Peter and beautiful Doug got the nomination. He was so flawless in the Ricky storyline.
    Sorry about MTS surprised by McKay did not know she was lead. Not surprised Case was not nominated..she should have put in for supporting. Scratching my head at Collins and James..Congratulations to all. These are my opinions and does not reflect my total. Disdain of Muhney&Case

    The whole system is based on a reel that is under 5 minutes worth of work. Peggy McCay most likely submitted her scenes when she was coming to grips that she might have dementia. The problem is the whole awards system is flawed– I think it needs to rework or done away with.

    Reply

    Ces replied

    I agree with you Mary. It has always been flawed and shouldn’t be based on a 5 minute reel but a majority of good work for the good year like Finola Hughes who is always on target in all her scenes not just a short story arc. Oh well..

    Yes you are so right Rod thanks for saying what I was thinking I would like to see Doug pick it up for Best Actor because this will probably be the last chance since he is once again being used for props for other undeserving cast members on that show. Lead actress would be nice if Peggy Mckay took it just because everyone else has won one. Even though I did not see her work since I do not watch Days.

    I agree with all of you regarding the ladies of GH. Something’s rotten in Demark here. Kelly Sullivan (remembering Connie’s rape) was also an exceptional stand-out. Not nominating her, Finola, Robin, etc. makes no sense when you look at someone’s acting who is definitely not as seasoned, Lindsey Morgan as Kristina, who got a nomination, not to mention Y & R getting 23 nominations, when it was talked about all year how the show was pretty bad. This nomination process sucks!

    Are they kidding me? How do Finola Hughes and Laura Wright get left out of the Lead Actress category? That’s an absolute travesty.

    I’m also shocked to see that Roger Howarth for Lead Actor and Robin Mattson for Supporting Actress didn’t make it. They were both fantastic on GH last year. I would have thought they would have been a slam dunk for a nomination.

    Did the people that vote on these nominations actually watch the tapes that were submitted, or do they just randomly check off whatever names on the list that they feel like checking off?

    That’s the only explanation when someone like Lindsey Morgan gets a nomination, and no disrespect to her as a person, but she was not good on GH, and people that deliver day in and day out, like Finola Hughes, Laura Wright, Roger Howarth and Robin Mattson get left out. Very disappointing.

    On the positive side, I’m very happy for Jason Thompson. At least they got that one right. I hope he wins.

    I forgot to mention Kelly Sullivan as well. Another one that was pre-nominated and got left off the final list. How great was she during the peak of the Kate/Connie storyline?

    Reply

    Michael replied

    You all need to look at Frank Valentini, who has a horrible track record when it comes to nominating things. Ergo, the reason why GH probably didn’t do so well in the acting categories. With Y&R/B&B pretty much dominating the acting cats, I don’t see Y&R winning Drama Series, unless it was something that Jill Farren Phelps submitted that was far more superior than anything Maria Arena Bell did. If that’s the case, then Y&R may have a shot.

    However, I’m thrilled for KKL for finally getting that elusive Emmy nom that she has so richly deserved over the years. My bets on her to win Supporting Actress. I’m also thrilled that OLTL finally got a Drama Series Emmy nod. It’s about time. Despite being a Y&R/B&B fan, I’m really hoping that OLTL takes the Drama Series Emmy.

    Iakovos replied

    I like Sharon Case, too, and if she is ever to win a nomination or Emmy, the writers need to realistically make her character strong. We need to see Sharon Newman really evolve into someone other than the drippy punching bag she has become (Thank you, MAB!). Let me see her risk something, lose something, find something in herself (not others!) to achieve or succeed or try (even if she fails). Sharon needs some stakes in life. Case is a fine actor done no ofavors by the plot lines given her in recent years.

    It took until now — 25years! — for Katherine Kelly Lang to win a nomination. Why? Because Brooke Logan was played as a real human being who took a journey with Stephanie, one that challenged and changed her (until B&B threw Brook at Bill Spencer and suddenly all that strnegth and individual spirit conferred upon her by Stephanie was left on the Big Bear forest floor!).

    It is a lovely gesture all five broadcast dramas, including OLTL, received a nod as Best Dramatic Series. Still, I think only three merit the nod: GH (for consistent excellence); B&B (for the “Stephanie dies” storyline alone); and OLTL (its grand and satisfying finish on ABC).

    I quibble with the noms for Y&R and B&B in the writing category. Serial dramas do seem to rely on recycled storylines but these two shows rely too much on that, and the storytelling quality has been less than what it has been in other years. Y&R surely gets lots of love from the academy, and in a year when the series was not strong overall. Allowances for the actors on the show, several of the best received noms today. I just wished they were served by better writing. Special cheer for Doug Davidson!

    I am not embracing the acting nods for Bryton James on Y&R and Lindsey Morgan on GH. I think the nominators should have looked closer at Morgan’s on-screen sister, Haley Pullos. I also offer the idea that a Younger Actor should not be kept out of the Best Actor category only by age. Chandler Massey as Will on DOOL surely deserves a nom with the “big boys” as he carried (carries!) his storyline and is a lead on the series.

    Glad to see Katherine Kelly Lang from B&B get a nomination. The B&B powers-that-be miss opportunities to go new challenging places with Brooke (please stop the endless mind-numbing mistakes in men) but her scenes with Susan Flannery in the “Stephanies dies” storyline were very good indeed.

    And what about Peggy McCay from DOOL? Very good to see her name on the list today.

    I am missing Finola Hughes (GH), Roger Howarth (OLTL and GH) and Robin Mattson (GH). I think they should be on the roster, too.

    Can someone tell me if Venesa Marcil’s run is up on General Hospital. I thought she was hanging around, for awhile…….. not permanently, but for a little while. She appeared at just after April 1st, and last aired Friday April 19th. I don’t call that hanging around for awhile…..

    Anyone know anything.

    But they said Jax was hanging around, and he hasn’t been seen, only but to usher Brenda back in Port Charles and thus dump her.

    Anyone know anything

    Doug Davidson, (Paul Williams),The Young and the Restless should win this… The storyline with his son Ricky.!!!! A stellar performance from this fine actor… Please give Mr. Davidson more scripts worthy of his talent… He can handle it!!!

    You are right. It will be between him and Michael Muhney. Muhney is good. He came in and made the Adam character his own. Davidson should have won it last year. He has been giving some stellar performances lately. They should give him more heavy roles to play because we all know he will nail them. The best leading actors on the show are Davidson and Muhney.

    Glad to see KKL finally got a nom. Too bad she had to go supporting to get it.

    Don’t know why OLTL is on for Best Show as it wasn’t even on for a month in 2012, was it? But they go by one ep, so there you have it.

    Nice to see Michael Muhney nominated.

    Overall, I’d say I’m happy. There are some names I’d like to see, but that’s always the case, isn’t it?

    Oltl was robbed last year from a nomination for best drama where clearly it was the best show in 2011. I would say its a nice surprise. In my opinion I think oltl should win for writing if they submitted those episodes involving Vicki’s speech. That’s what daytime soaps are all about.

    I really think GH overall should have gotten more especially in the acting! I watched all of them last year and GH was always #1 for me, OLTL was #2, and after OLTL was gone Y&R took #2 in my opinion. The quality of the acting… for a whole show follows my favorite rankings above with individual exceptions… like Susan Flannery. To have GH miss out on so many truly talented performances is very shocking and disappointing.

    With 11 fabulous actresses in the pre-nom process… to come up with only 4 is very sad!!! The 11 ladies are all very talented and their performances were great… but there are only some that would be stellar and in my opinion of the 4 nominated… only 1 was stellar and there could have been at least 2-3 more that were stellar worthy and they were not nominated… very unfortunate! There has for at least the last few years… been a CBS/Sony bias and it has continued into this year!

    With 10 fabulous actors in the pre-nom process… there should have been more than 4!!! Of the 4 nominated I agree that they were nomination worthy… but 2-3 others are missing from the nomination process.

    In both the supporting actress & actor categories… I am very disappointed with the final nominations… many missed opportunities. The only good thing about only 4 and of the 4 selected… my favorite… Bradford Anderson should have his best shot at a win this year!!!

    Within the younger category… huge missed opportunities occurred… enough said!

    Someone should tell the folks at GH who to pay off for these noms next year, because this is a joke. Aside from Jason Thomson, the others are not only the wrong actors to be nominated, but the ladies? Come on! Laura Wright, Kelly, Kelly Sullivan, Finola Hughes, Robin Mattson, where the hell are they? Even Roger Howarth should’ve been nominated! BB and Y&R got everything, which makes no sense unless it was a public vote. This has to be rigged.

    ITA- the whole award system is either corrupted or simply a popularity contest with members voting for people they know. Most of us work day in and day out, and the reward is doing a job well and getting paid for it. I don’t need a little statue on my shelf- so why does the performing arts community whether it is film or music have this constant need to award their works? One reason- to promote themselves- it all about spin, not talent– about money, not excellence– time for the all these awards shows to go bye bye. I would love to see all actors refuse to submit reels next year and end this madness.

    This list is unbelievable!! Where is Finola Hughes and Kelly Sullivan?! Why the hell is Bryton James, Max Erich, Hunter King, Jeff Branson, Jessica Collins, and Bradford Anderson nommed?! This is a joke! I’m happy Doug Davidson got a nomination, but where is the guy that played Ricky? He did a FABULOUS job in those bathroom scenes with Doug. I’m also happy Michael Muhney got nommed, but where is Sharon Case?! She did some of her BEST work in 2012! Lead actress and supporting actress, I guess won’t even matter with Flannery and Lang’s reels this year, and rightfully so, but I would like to see more people who deserve nominations be on this list.

    I am hoping Kristen Alderson wins though, its a travesty that she has yet to win an Emmy with how many years she’s been on soaps and how many terrific performances she’s turned in,

    THIS is why the Emmys keep losing viewers BECAUSE THEY DON’T NOMINATE PEOPLE WHO DESERVE THEM.

    How the hell did General Hospital not get more noms than Young and the Restless? Y&R was HORRIFIC last year and is slowly getting worse by each day! GH last year and to this day, have had compelling, emotional stories that turned out outstanding performances, especially from the ladies!! Robin Mattson, Finola Hughes, Laura Wright, and Kelly Sullivan completely deserved to be on this list. Kelly Monaco also was very powerful during the baby-switch storylines! Not to mention Maurice Bernard and Roger Howarth who were also brilliant in 2012! I’m happy to see Jason Thompson rightfully get a nom, but that doesn’t flush out the fact that 90% of these nominations read like a bad joke. I shouldn’t be surprised since this has been happening for the past few years, but I always hope that they will do better… and they never do. Pathetic.

    As far as B&B for best writing team and drama. I don’t know about that one. All B&B fans know there’s been a certain triangle going on for the last three years that we’ve been begging them to end. As far as Stephanie’s death, that scene caused pandemonium with the fans. There were more people outraged about that then ever before. The B&B hotline crashed, their twitter was overrun. They really pissed off alot of fans with that like I have never, ever seen before. So I don’t know about them being the best writing team last year.

Oh, well…………………………..The viewers should pick the winners so it can be fair. I have a problem with this. Something’s wrong. If Michael Muhney does not win for the lead actor category, I know for a fact that it’s something fishy going on.

    It says a lot about the depth of talent on daytime television that we are argue so passionately about who deserves recognition for their work. In the theater when an actor gives a great performance you can reward them will a standing ovation. Perhaps one day, soaps will have an interactive hook up to social media, so when you see something on the screen you want to reward you can give the actor a like or something like that- and if the actor or a show get a certain amount of those in a year- they would be entitled some kind of statue or something. Then the fans, those who actually watch and appreciated these performances will have a real say in who deserves recognition for outstanding work.

    I agree that there has to be a better way than the one they have now. Doug Davidson delivered on the Ricky storyline and the one when Nikki decided she would go back to Victor after they supposedly had found eachother again and I truly believe the writers could have made something special of it had there been a good enough writer there at the time. Doug Davidson delivered as though it was happening in his real life. He and Muhney should come in for a tie this time around. Davidson should have gotten it last year. For the love of all good actors I don’t understand why he did not get it. I want him to win this time. But at the same time Muhney is deserving also. So they both should get it.

    I am so happy that Davidson has more screen time and will be in our face more often. Him being Chief of Police is wonderful. I am so happy for him. I know….we fans somethimes get a little carried away…………..that’s ok……that’s what it is all about. The actors become a part of our lives in a sense……….They keep us entertained. I love Y&R. I am just so grateful that some of the ones we thought were being left behind are now recognized for the wonderful talent they are. Now if they can just redeem Sharon Case……………That’s a whole new subject so I will stop here.

    I am sick of the females on Y&R behaving like women who are defined by having a man in their lives. I loved the Skye character. She was a strong, independent and intelligent woman that could hold her own. They should bring this character back on the scene if for nothing else but to show Sharon how to woman up. I was so hoping that they would strengthen Sharon and let her hold her own without a man in her life for awhile and eventually find an actor that will fit perfectly with her and one that respects and adores her and one that will not throw her away for someone else like Nick did. She deserves better. Yes, she deserved the win this time around. But I guess good things come to those who wait. I’m sure Stafford never thought she could be replaced either. It looks as though all good things will at some point and time come to an end. Life is so unpredictable. We never know what a day will bring. I realy hope Doug Davidson wins it this time around. He so deserves this and it has been a long time coming for one of Y&R’s finest actors. Jeanne Cooper will be missed more than I can say by so many of her fans. Till me meet again, Kay. I will live till I die and laugh till I cry. You will be missed more than you know.
