    Originally, I thought SSH was going to win (since it’s been almost 40 years since her last nomination). However, since she and Bill are getting lifetime achievement awards, the favorite should be Marla Adams.

    Without a doubt
    Marla Adams – Dina GH ..
    She is real, the real deal ..
    Marla is absolutely phenomenal in every single scene ..

    BRAVA!! Marla ..


    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    You mean Y&R, not GH, right?


  3. Frank Drake Jr says:

    I think it’s Marla for the win but Camryn, Elizabeth and Mishael all have a shot as well.


  4. Tony says:

    If Marla Adams doesn’t win, she was robbed.


    Karen R replied

    Totally agree, Marla Adams plays the role beautifully.


  5. K/kay says:

    If it is sentimental SFh or MA if it is reality Camryn no contest


    K/kay replied

    Hopefully she will thank SC who always carrys the story


  6. Ray says:

    Marla Adams!!!!


  7. Jules says:

    I wanted Susan’s reel to be stronger. It seemed like an odd combination of material. I was really rooting for her.


  8. Jimh says:

    i wish Susan Seaforth would win…she never did win an emmy but i think it will go to Marla Adams


    Violet Lemm replied

    Kind of ironic, these two women being in the running, with Dina always bad mouthing Lauren’s mother, played by SSH. She was a shrew, for sure. My vote goes to Marla Adams, whom I’ve loved since Secret Storm, the young , vivacious Belle.


  9. Mateo says:

    This category is hard. But with her strong and real performance, no one but Camryn Grimes should walk away with this award. She is one of the most amazing actresses in the daytime field. She has comic timing, dramatic prowess and sincerity. No one compares. I loved all the performances nominated but Camryn just takes it away. C’mon give the girl an award already.


  10. Karen R says:

    Marla Adams by far has been wonderful in her role.
    Misheal has been very good as well, second favorite after Marla.


  11. Jovin says:

    This category is tough because it is a total battle of sentimental favourites versus current and trendy favourites. Lets rule out the Bolr and Beautiful chick right away. Sorry. No Emmy there. Camryn Grimes, a past Emmy winner, is always great, but her story was kind of weak this year. Hilary on Y and R…is SO reminiscent of Brenda Dickson as young Jill ,, she does deseve an Emmy. I think this competition though is down to the old timers, and it will be between Susan and Marla. The story of Davids death on Days however, was told too fast, her reaction was way too quick and over the top. I think Marla Adams had the kind of star turn that wins Emmy awards.


  12. Mo says:


    Camryn is also fabulous.


  13. dmr says:

    Marla Adams, for the win, no question!


  14. Michael says:

    Marla Adams for the win!


  15. Mary SF says:

    Boy what a tough choice each performer had a great reel of material for consideration. I think it will be one of the ladies from Y&R, and I would be happy with any of them— but out of the four of them I think Mishael had the strongest reel showcasing a variety of emotions- although Marla’s work was stellar, I believe her best work came after the stuff on her reel and is to come, so I will be rooting for her next year.


  16. Joel says:

    Camryn or Marla.


  17. eddie says:

    Marla adams did not have the best tape,but overall her performances throughout the year and her tenure from 83-86 gives her this award.


  18. Carlos says:

    Marla Adams , deserves the award, Susan does too, either will win, CG, should be the winner, despite the backlash the show ,writers got for the direction of the storyline…….she is awesome.


  19. Soaphound says:

    I’ll go with Marla as well, with Camryn and Mishael close seconds. Hendrickson was good also, but JMW doesn’t even belong here. Y&R’s Amelia Heinle or Melissa Ordway (Victoria & Abby, respectively) are far more accomplished actresses.


  20. Phyllis Fontaine DeMarco says:

    I am so hoping for Marla Adams to win. Love Camryn Grimes and Mishael Morgan as well, but this is pretty much Marla’s last shot at the trophy and her decades of solid performances in daytime are so very deserving of acknowledgement and praise.


  21. Alan says:

    I think it is going to come down to Marla Adams or Camryn Grimes. Unfortunately, the writing for both has been so uneven that I would just give it to Elizabeth Hendrickson who at least had an arc under Sally Sussman’s tenure.

    Marla has made the most of the material she has been given but sadly Dina’s Alzheimer’s storyline has been pretty lackluster with her character either being played for laughs or used to commit various crimes to provide something to watch other than local billionaires trying to buy a park, Devon’s off-camera search for the next American Idol, Scott’s total lack of chemistry with both Sharon and Abby, or Billy and Phyllis’ forced “comedic” antics.

    Camryn Grimes’ coming out scene was outstanding…but then the show immediately dropped the storyline and is now hinting that Mariah is probably bi-sexual at most so it really negates the performance for me. I’ve read that the show caved to negative viewers’ complaints about the story and if that’s true then they shouldn’t have attempted to tell it in the first place. Writers come and go but viewers have very long memories and I find it very unbelievable that Mariah caught “the gays” for a few months and then got “all better.”


  22. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    Based on the reels alone, this is a tossup for Marla Adams (Dina, Y&R) and Camryn Grimes (Mariah, Y&R). Their reels are the strongest in the category. However, had Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, B&B) been able to nominate her scenes where Liam confronted her about sleeping with Bill and the baby potentially being his, then she would’ve been another contender. However, the other reels lack something in them.


  23. Irene says:

    Camryn Grimes–From submissions. She broke my heart


  24. Phil says:

    If only I liked the character of Julie! I would hand her the Emmy though because clearly she is doing the job, but Marla Adams would be my pick! I don’t even like or watch Y&R!
