Everyone has been asking, just where was Days of our Lives James Scott’s (EJ DiMera) name on the ballot for the list of lead actor’s who are in the running to try and nab a Pre-Nomination in this year’s 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards contest? Well the answer to that came officially today in the latest issue of Soap Opera Uncensored!
James, who many felt was a shoo-in for a nomination for his work, decided not to submit himself and a clip of his work in the initial round revealing, “I looked for a couple of weeks and couldn’t find anything I really felt confident about. I had a lot of pretty good shows, but nothing that I felt would really place me in contention so I thought it best to duck out this year. And, honestly, I am a little disenfranchised with the whole process. Last year I submitted 3 minutes of what I thought was the best material I have done in a long time and it didn’t even make it past the first round.”
So soapers what do you think about James’ sentiments? Do you understand why James says he felt a bit “disenfranchised” with the Emmy process after last year’s knockout in the first round? What scene would you have like to seen James submit to earn him a slot on the Pre-Nomination ballot? Weigh-in!
