    Did they change the rules for best geust performer? How did morgan fairchild get nominated when her character is not brand new.Also,I assume all the pictures are the winners in each category.If that is true then someone told you who the winners are.

    Reply

    Steve replied

    Originally, I thought that about existing characters, but apparently the performer must be new to the show, the character can be existing. I’m not sure if there’s a maximum number of appearances quota in the guest category.

    Voting starts all a new now that the nominations are out.

    eddie replied

    There is no more voting.The winner has already been picked.The actor or actress who received the most votes is the winner.This has been the ridiculous procedure for the past 4 years.

    I truly feel that Galen Gering was totally snubbed for Lead Actor! His work as Rafe Hernandez in Days of Our Lives was outstanding this past year and more than deserving of the Emmy. Let hope next year Galen get the nod!

    She has done phenomenal work with the 3 personalities. Ron C & team always make stories better. Unexpected twists. Not sure what she submitted because she seems to have great stuff as of late. Hope she wins. She is great with both her lead guys. Lucky her.

    “THIS ” is the nicest far out spot on

    LOVING THIS… she’s amazing

    listened to her “take” on the MF emmy nomination show…. and as pointed out.. she broke in… tore it up… leveled the playing field.. as it were

    and as mentioned.. all the other nominees.. are emmy winners.

    WHY NOT emmy win this newbie.. this ingénue.. this marvel.. this token bona fide dedicated to this craft

    I LOVE Marci Miller

    she’s captivating … watch her everyday.. no histrionics.. just on your mark contained camera loves her… poised performance

    Cassey Moss-yes…he improved a lot and is a fine young actor…Chandler Massey-sorry but what started out as a much welcome return has fizzled lately…Chandler just isnt given enough…seems to stand around in scenes like a rock and looks like he ifs going to burst out laughing…Days is such an improved soap but im already tired of the Gabbi or Abbi story-would be nice if Days won…Chloe lanier-sometimes i like Nelle and sometimes i dont….she is crazy Heather Webberish…could she be Franco’s daughter????

    Celia replied

    Agree with everything you said, Jimmy. You must agree that Chloe Lanier is as good as crazy gets. Love her!! Impeccably acted.

    Reply

    Jimh replied

    I was starting to get a little bored but she does remind me of Heather…maybe she is Franco’s daughter and Heather’s granddaughter???….

    Shay replied

    @CeeCee….Chloe Lanier’s nomination is one of the few GH kudos that actually makes sense…the girl can act her socks off! Best of luck to her! As for the others, given that the two best actresses from that soap, Finola Hughes and Genie Francis, didn’t get the Emmy respect they’ve earned and deserved, I can only hope that the tiresome trio from Port Charles cancels each other out and Y&R’s Eileen Davidson gets the golden nod!! Quite frankly, I’ve had it up to here from both Ava and Carly, and you already know where I stand on the character of Alexis….as if NLG’s perpetually-condescending combo of nagging and shagging, rutting and tut-tutting is Emmy-worthy!!!! Give me a break!

    Llanviewer717 replied

    I absolutely agree with you Jimh concerning Casey Moss. He is a fine actor who gives a very solid performance. I’m happy his work is being recognized.

    I did not see Chandler Massey during his prior tenure with the show. Since coming on this time, I’m completely underwhelmed. The actor seems bored and the character seems arrogant.

    Reply

    Jimh replied

    Will used to be far more interesting…and i totally agree with you about the actor!

    Mo replied

    They haven’t quite given Chandler enough material. He is a great actor. I don’t know that he will win an Emmy this year, but he totally deserves the ones he already has.

    Celia replied

    You know better than I, Jimmy, that anything is possible. I still think Nelle is Nina’s and Silas’. …as is Kiki.
    I do praise Nelle’s acting, but not the story….only because there’s a baby involved.
    ….do not like Michael…ugh…I used to, but since he has completely forgotten who his real father is; and, how easily he has forgiven both Sonny and his mother….well, he is at the bottom of the totem pole for me.
    However, the more I think about it, the more I believe you are on to something……Nelle and Maxie go into labor at the same time …..Nelle’s baby dies, and she steals Maxie’s. I find what I just said distasteful, but it is typical soap fodder.
    I hope not….but, there it is.

    Reply

    Jimh replied

    Wish they move on away from Carly and have Nelle search for her birth parents….we did have to endure Nina attempting to steal Ava’s child…i think they will repeat the story…Crazy Nelle …it would seem she could be the granddaughter of Crazy Heather…or perhaps Nelle is Nina’s…and im bored with Micheal-he is a snooze

    Celia replied

    You make sense to me, Jimmy……
    Yet, I hope to God, Nelle does not do what Nina did…..
    If Nelle turns out to be Nina’s? Well, my Jimmy….the story comes full circle.

    Yes, DONNA, and as far as I’m concerned, GV is still owed some overdue recognition from his stellar work as Lucky on GH years ago. Gorgeous and gifted…what a combo!

    Patrick replied

    let me get out two things….

    1. how – just – over the moon I am that Greg Vaughan made the cut. I want an all out campaign for this guy to WIN. Greg Vaughan as Eric Brady is my current day William Holden… just so doggone good looking… you notice every thing. Roaring laugh out loud… his scenes with Jenny bear… it’s almost like he’s in on the “joke” and teasing the hell out of her. OK OK. even I have to admit… Jenny Bear is not floundering. Would I fare any better

    Man … I want Greg Vaughan to be recognized. not just for all he is. his talent this year… with RC scripts… ALIVE and WELL … one of… the BESTEST Leading MEN

    2. OK the biggest diss of them all. Judi Evans not being nominated and recognized for her all out tour de force .. as Bonnie AND Adrienne Kiriakis.

    She ran the gamut of doppleanger… SHE WAS HYSTERICAL… any actor who can run the gamut of comedic to drama and all that traverses with… every beat .. she noted sang and raced to the finish. she’s a marvel of a woman. she owns you… and is a doggone trooper its all in a days work.. with her spirit. WOAH

    just love love love her to bits… her story for breast cancer… her break up and reconciliation with Justin… her missing out on her son Sonny “wedding” and her comedic triumph as Bonnie. now her heart beat heartfelt feat as sister to Steve Patch Johnson. tear up

    GO Greg Vaughan. WIN IT FOR THE TEAM

    So glad to see Susan Seaforth Hayes and Marla Adams nominated–wondering IF Genie Francis would have been nominated had she been given a good story line AND air time.
    Hmmmmmmm.
    And glad to see Mary Beth Evans nominated-again!–on The Bay.

    Glad also to see Casey Moss nominated as JJ on Days.
    And finally to see Wally Kurth nominated (on one of the series he is on!)

    So happy Marla was nominated and hope she gets it. Next year Max Gail definetly should be nominated in the guest star category. He has been amazing in the dementia story as has Marla.

    So, I’m thrilled over the following nominations: Billy Miller (finally out from the “Jason” shadow); the great Maura West; wonderful Greg Rikaart (ridiculously released from Y&R); Casey Moss (proof that pretty AND talented can exist together); Hudson West (a real pro already); and, mostly, those 3 great supporting actresses from Y&R: the towering Marla Adams (what a thrill this must be for her also), fantastic Camryn Crimes, and the criminally overlooked Mishael Morgan as the deliciously devious Hillary. I like Laura Wright, but this nomination is inexplicable to me but, overall, I’m happy for the first time in several years.

    Agree all the way down….all your comments, dmr. I don’t want to run the risk of being repetitious……but, Marci Miller is done for me. I do not believe the acting…….the subterfuge and quick thinking kill it for me. She looks great, though….
    Oh, someone sent me a comment in my inbox….hilarious. Was it you? ….about Carly and Peter and “Parking Lot”? Such a baby face. Me no like!!

    Love Eileen-always have-talent and brains (and beauty)! Marci-why was she nominated? A complete snooze-fest!

    Patrick replied

    I am , of course , baffled by two , who made the cut -

    1. Eileen Davidson – ??? what for? her relationship with mom… Dina ? her sparring with Graham ? it seems to me this show just glossed over .. and covered ground to keep appearance. I did not hear or read, one iota of gut wrenching pull out all the stops contained performances. unless, this is for the “outing” of who her biological father is. even then I’ve not read in SOD or this site any significance . @Days of OUR Lives… absolutely she is riveting. not that it’s worth comparing her lead actress story to @DAYS.

    hey… Y&R as a production has been so quiet. the last couple years… that outside of Dina Altzheimers … is Mariah still holding fast that she’s lesbian?

    god.. it’s stymied time.. to even think … two monumental un momento…

    1. that Plane Crash .. w/ Chris Pratt
    2. the opening Abbott breakfast w/ Kay Alden

    Now we are in the midst of Mal Young – it’s surreal to see what is not happening @Y&R. no excitement nothing generating… no word of mouth… till now

    FACT: the story line going on now… despite the protest that JT would never act this way… is breakout stuff for both Amelia Heinle and Thad Luckinbill. dag , i’m so happy for my girl.. Amelia… LOVE IT

    what’s going on with the denizen of Genoa City ? drawing blanks for too long

    2. Laura Wright . ??? what for ? when Frank Jean Shelley Chris … continue to bash our heads in with the same character day in and day out… with the constant annoyance .. because that’s all she can be is loud . has to trample any and all denizen.
    as I’ve oft posted… WHO… ANSWER THIS … WHAT .. IF ANY characters SEEK her out ? why would they ? yeah, she’s so lucky she has bobbie.. otherwise she’s DOA material… and a constant reminder, all the rest of the cast not getting REEL TIME. I’ve asked… what quality if any defines her ? sure she’ll read the hell out of a script given her. she barrels over any one she shares scenes with. even the writers thought they could ring out something .. with the women of : Bobbi, Carly, Nelle, Josslyn. not a go. especially if Nelle survives what she’s doing to Carly. does any one care ? why waste your time… if Sonny and Jason are just right outside the door. such a bore
    Carly has had no story this past year. just plopping her here there and everywhere because Frank can.

    I would have switched these two OUT. for @DAYS Judi and Mary Beth Evans

    as for @GH. I’m actually thoughtfully happy for NLG” Alexis… if her REEL is for her alcoholism story. she was GREAT. now she’s that much more staid and lifeless. PARTAY!

    as for @GH. Maura West should OWN this year.. if it has any thing to do with her going to the cemetery to see Morgan… and Carly and Sonny show up. in the bag

    as LONG AS Laura Wright is eliminated and the GH votes cancel her out. I’ll take it.

    THIS years EMMY rightfully belong; to @DAYS Marci Miller, @GH Maura West

    I dont have to look at the reels to know that Days of Our Lives is gonna win best drama and best writing team. GH or B&B could win best directing. James Reynolds or Peter Bergman is gonna win lead actor. Maura West, Eileen Davidson, or Marcy Miller will be named lead actress. Greg Vaughan or Chandler Massey is gonna win supporting actor. Marla Adams or Camryn Grime is gonna win supporting actress. Casey Moss is the winner for younger actor. He cant be beat. The only person i see beating him is co star Lucas Adams. Reign Edwards or Chloe Lainer for younger actress. Im gonna watch the reels when they come out. My final predictions will probably be the same.

    Was surprised Scott wasn’t nominated. He was great in those scenes when he found out his father slept with his wife. Some of his best acting, yet in won three times before for lesser material. Think Peter will win though I think Michael Easton has been great as Finn. The character has so much added dimension lately.

    @GH : of the dullard Corinthos’ Clan and FRANK agenda

    Maurice Benard – not even nominated . YES
    Laura Wright – have no idea WHY she even submitted

    Steve Burton – Jason . YOU NEED TO ACT.. sorry ole blue eyes
    Kelly Monaco – Sam . you have run your course. be gone

    Chad Duell – Michael . simply one of the worst in all of daytime
    Chloe Lanier – Nelle . Congratulations… you’re wasted in this pie.

    Michael Easton – Finn . this is the most stupefying of all. what for ? could it be … your godlike cure of addiction ? the biggest syringe and yellow opioid connect.

    Roger Howarth – all this pressure on Liz to forgive what happened as a kid. not even your fault if you did push him down those stairs. kids will be kids ? so blown up. EASE on down the road Franco. your mind is all we know. just over ripe overkill.

    3 of Franks dullards made the cut : Laura Wright / Chloe Lanier / Michael Easton

    I take this year as indicative that Frank NEEDS to seriously think about his direction

    You know, jamesj75, I had an odd reaction to Mr. Easton’s nomination. At first, I remembered fondly his little “assignment” with Anna, which I enjoyed. But then I thought: where are the deeper, profound moments that we expect from a Lead Actor nominee? I didn’t see them. There’s none of Peter Bergman’s commanding authority or the heartbreaking sadness we saw in Billy Miller’s eyes when Sonny & Carly dropped Drew. Oh well, I’m so happy over Billy’s nom, plus those for Greg Rikaart, Mishael Morgan, Camryn Grimes, Marla Adams, Casey Moss, and Maura West that I can let this one slide. Though I do feel that Carly’s clomping shoes and constantly flipping hair deserve nominations, too. THEY really worked hard this year!

Here in the real world people are trying to feed their kids pay for insurance keep a roof over their head, so to see these actors use their filthy language on Twitter about us has turned me off I am still a viewer of y &r but about to drop it because of my dectroying JT

    Laura Wright and Maura West had another great year. They always get nominated cause they are the best actresses on soaps. Kelly Monaco was not snubbed. She never gets nominated for a reason. She is not in the same league as the other GH leading ladies. Nancy Lee Grahn deserved that third spot in outstanding actress.

    Billy Miller? The man grunted and mumbled through another year on GH. He needs to go back to Y&R and stop phoning in his performances. Michael Easton finally gets himself a nomination. Well deserved and well played as Finn.

    Anthony Montgomery was the unsung overlooked hero of the tale of two Jason storyline. He is going to win this category next month and people better not act surprised when takes the gold. Wally Kurth is a very deserving nominee and put in his work for GH over DOOL. He was wonderful last year taking over the Quartermaine family.

    Chloe Lanier is easily the best actress in her category. She is the next Laura Wright, Maura West, Nancy Lee Grahn, Finola Hughes and Michelle Stafford all rolled into one. She will dominate at the Daytime Emmy awards for years to come. Hayley Erin is a very deserving nomination as Kiki Jerome. She has grown so much as a performer since playing Abby on Y&R.

    Hudson West is the next big thing. A star is born in this young man.

    Maura West is an amazing actress and performer. I absolutely love her as Ava Jerome. I think she is truly talented and never, ever phones in her dialogue. I can’t say the same for Laura Wright, sorry. I used to be a fan…

    Patrick replied

    “…Anthony Montgomery was the unsung overlooked hero of the tale of two Jason storyline. ” NICE HEADLINE

    THEE Toughest Category. inarguably.

    I WANT AM Andre to take home GOLD.

    I think this will be a 3 way race : between :

    Anthony Montgomery, Andre, GH
    Wally Kurth, Ned, GH
    Greg Vaughan, Eric, DAYS

    ie: AM’ Andre is also bringing it home… with Finola Hughes…. NOW THIS IS Chemistry. Finn and Anna ? don’t go their. keep Finn with Alexis . Anna looks so relaxed and at ease with Andre. as he helps Anna search for her missing son.

    you know… I’ve posted about this… Wes Ramsey as Heinrick is not making any inroads… why couldn’t they have made this son a newbie… and yes… it’d be a new character… like Anna.. not knowing who this child is… seems like it’d be fun for the audience as well… to just drop in this son… and every one gets to explore this newfound family.

    Wes Ramsey Peter / Heinrick is not working. he can try all he wants to establish and connect with any one he can. I just don’t see it… even with the ditzy chicks Maxie and Lulu. just ho-hum.

    Best Supporting Actor , Male. I will salute these men. too close to call

    Soaphound replied

    Well, Vince, I completely disagree about Billy Miller, but thanks for highlighting Anthony Montgomery’s stellar work. He really came into his own during the 2-Jasons story especially that riveting scene in the interrogation room when he began to unravel the twisted tale. He looked like a man still half-obsessed with the brain-mapping idea, while also realizing it has been his doom. Practically Shakespearean! And Maura West just gets better every year!

    rebecca1 replied

    Hey, Patrick…well, we know we all have our own taste. I love Wes as Peter and I think he has quite a bit of chemistry with Maxi. His style reminds me of Tyler Christopher, kinda mellow but present. He’s soothing to listen to, beautiful to look at and I just like his style. (I can actually see him in an old black ‘n’ white movie as a detective, LOL.) I hope his character stays on and Wes continues in the role.

    Always liked Anthony Montgomery/Andre. Good, natural actor.

    LOVE Ned/Wally Kurth! Always have!

    It’s weird for me to say that I’m feeling a little old after seeing Chandler’s name in a different acting category now after years of seeing him getting nominated in the Younger category (when he was carrying stories equivalent for that of a lead actor).

    Not sure about the other nominees in the Younger Actor category but I think Casey Moss got this in the bag. Although I’m curious on what reels he and the other actors have submitted for consideration.

    Wow. I’m really okay with the list this year. Seems more balanced this time around. The ones that didn’t make the cut (thanks, Patrick!) were the right call. Each category has some close contenders, which is neat. Maybe a lock in one of the categories, but still some good competition. Good job nominaters! Congratulations all around to the nominees!

    Interesting to see if the voters go for best performances last year or consider lifetime work.

    In the Lead Actor category, McCook is probably favored. Bergman and Miller are 3-time winners. Reynolds and Easton are more supporting.

    Will the GH trio cancel each other out in Lead Actress? Marci Miller’s best work came after the eligibility period.

    This is Kurth’s first acting nomination. He won for an Emmy for songwriting. This category is wide open.

    Hayes was last nominated almost 40 years ago. As a daytime legend that has never won, she has to be the favorite.

    Moss and Lanier are near locks in the Younger categories. Whether you love or hate Aunt Stella, Vernee made an impact from her first GH screen appearance.

    Pure joy at seeing Wally Kurth’s name on this list. Ned is one of my all time favorite characters.
    Billy Miller is great when he is not playing Jason Morgan. I liked JakeDoe and I like Drew. I would be happy to hear his name called.
    Marci Miller, I guess I need my eyes checked. I think her portrayal of Abby is laughable.
    Hudson West and Lucas Adams, I’m torn. They were both terrific.
    Laura Wright, please no.
    Michael Easton, I like him, but what was his Emmy worthy story?
    Nancy Lee Grahn, what was her Emmy worthy story?

    ABSOLUTELY – without doubt. Wally Kurth fully imbues both characters. he just loads them… with his artistry. and REELS so affectingly and TAKES YOU IN.

    he seamlessly weaves both characters so effortlessly. I know we’re just talking about @Ned from GH. nevertheless… @DAYS Justin… he’s on fire.

    when two different networks.. HIRE THIS man… because he’s that charismatic

    WHAT A LIVELIHOOD. WHAT a Career. how much fun can one have .

    I LOVE what he brings to this genre. I’ve read in SOD… he clearly has more affection for @DAYS.. and that could only mean.. because he started out @DAYS.

    Wally Kurth deserves this nod and laud of GOLD on his mantle.

    watching Ned saying good bye… as an actor and as a character… with mom Tracy Quartermaine… was staggering … you wept at this closing of history.

    I can’t stand this category… it is chock full of talent. so much recognition this year.

    Wally Kurth characters are so solid ROMANTICIZED

    Very pleased that Van Hansis is nominated for lead actor for Eastsiders. I couldn’t get into the series when it came out, but should try again. He should have won for Luke Snyder (As The World Turns) when he was nominated two or three times.

    Anyone else miss As The World Turns, All My Children, and going back further The Edge of Night, Somerset, and Secret Storm?! I like the idea of an award for Most Missed Soap. It hits home when all four existing soaps are nominated for every category, and they’re not that great.

    That we have Daytime Emmys at all is a blessing after what has happened with the program in the last decade. I am pleased we can still have debates. With the genre reduced in scope anymore, we need to really embrace our programs and people, awards or no.

    thank you for stating. 100% agree

    1. Easton. from listening @MF emmy nomination show.. EASTON shared his scenes were with Rebecca Buddig… on his scenes with ??? drug … argh ! he straps himself tapes himself down in a chair… and has some trance moments of bleak and his love for Hayden. etc…. the cold turkey drug intervention … doing this for Hayden.

    it just doesn’t follow.. he was alive and well and back working @GH.. thanks to Monica. and Tracy. his character hasn’t worked with any one on the show. I say I like him with Alexis.. because they do have conversations.. and have already changed the sheets. AND if this duo keeps them from Julian and Anna. I’d say go for it. ME is wanted so badly by Frank Valentini.. then have at him.

    2. Miller : finally… if I dare say… and yes I have been waiting , forever.. it seems for many a character @GH to live… and be seen on the show. Billy Miller as Drew… finally came to… alive this past OCTOBER… not the full year.. at his and sam Gala premiere of Aurora… since that time… BM has had plenty to enjoy. 2017 was not the year of Billy Miller… his take as Jake Doe was the only other time he should have been recognized… his relationship and falling in love with Liz was prior to 2017. so yes.. if the writing holds 2018 plus… plan on BM Drew being recognized… and I only see this happening if he’s involved with Kim. and back home with mom Monica, and his son Oscar.
