The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) released today the nominated reels in the Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series category for this year’s 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards to be handed out on May 1st. In the running are: Ashlyn Pearce (Ex-Aly) The Bold and the Beautiful, Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) General Hospital, True O’ Brien (Ex-Paige) Days of our Lives, Hunter King (Summer) The Young and the Restless, and Reign Edwards (Nicole) The Bold and the Beautiful.
In this category, only Hunter King has won previously having taken this category twice. So who’s performance will have them taking home the gold on Emmy night? Will it be Pearce’s twisted Aly who is out to kill Steffy? King’s Summer, who learns the truth of her late husband’s infidelities with Abby? Edwards compassionate Nicole, who tries to tell her unwavering parents about Maya, and that she wants to stay in L.A. and live her life? O’Brien’s Paige, who learns her mother has been sleeping with her boyfriend? Or, Silzer’s Emma, who falls apart upon learning that Sam and Patrick are breaking up and once again she has no mother figure in her life?
