The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmys will be held on Sunday May 1st, but today NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) has begun posting the reels of the nominated work of the actors in the daytime drama categories.
First up is the battle in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series category which features several stellar performances. Nominated are: Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos) General Hospital, Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin) The Young and the Restless, Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer Cassadine) General Hospital, Tequan Richmond (TJ Ashford) General Hospital, and Pierson Fode’ (Thomas Forrester) The Bold and the Beautiful.
This year, whichever young man takes home the gold it will be their very first Daytime Emmy win! So will it be: Craig’s performance as a bipolar Morgan as he calls himself a loser compared to his brother Michael? Ehrich’s cornered and accussed Fen in the Cabin/Scooby-Doo murders?
Bechtel as the scene stealing son of Nikolas Cassadine, who’s 10th birthday celebration is filled with heartbreak? Richmond in his heart-tugging performance saying goodbye to Shawn as he carted off to prison? Or Fode’ in Thomas’ showdown with his father Ridge, in which he punches good ole’ dad in the face after being baited?
