    I completely agree no one is as cute and lovable and lights up a scene like the young actor who played little Sam.

    I liked the boy that played Jack before he was aged. I thought he was adorable and played the role exactly right. Wish they would not have SORASed him. The last little girl who played Emma was fabulous.

    Impressive that Austin Williams (OLTL) and Haley Pullous (Molly on GH) got two nominations. Pullous was also nominated for a guest appearance on House MD (FOX). Disappointing that Kelly Missal (Danielle on OLTL) and Patrick Gibbons, Jr (Sam on OLTL) received no nominations. Andrew Trischitta (Jack on OLTL) looks like a young Tom Cruise. I think Williams is likely to win, but I am a sucker for anyone from OLTL.

    Oh yeah, Sam from OLTL should have been nominated also. It’s too bad we can’t see him on TV anymore :(

    I only watched OLTL for a few months, but the Shane story was the reason I kept tuning in. The actor who played Shane should win hands down.
    Sam was also great.The little boy said his lines as though they were the truth,and he didn’t look like he was acting. A sign of an actor.
    Haley Pullos also deserves to win. She is terrific on GH.
    Ciera on DOOL also was good.

    I can sure understand that Shane was nominated, and he should win too! But Jack? Seriously? He may be cute, but he just can NOT act! I would cringe during some of his parts! I have seen numerous comments over time saying the same thing. A real dissapointment is that little Sam was not nominated. I don’t get that at all! He really deserved a nom! A better actor than Jack! I enjoyed Sam! I hope to see him again!

    Sam was great, and I agree with you: Jack was the WORST. Shane will probably win because he had some great stuff to work with and his acting broke your heart. And, can someone tell my why SPIKE from AMC was nominated?! Did the boy even speak on the show?! If he did, it was barely noticeable.

    I agree with you about Spike. Can’t recall the child saying much, or giving any notable performance. And that’s what makes it even more puzzling about Sam. How did Spike get a nom, and Sam did not? That little kid gave some notable performances, and especially for his age. A real snub! I do not get it at all! I’ll bet his little feelings were hurt!

    I’m so glad Lexi Ainsworth was nominated, I hope GH is embarrassed over their ridiculous and inept decision to send her away….she was amazing, she gave Alexis/Nancy more legitimate story – which was warranted – it was all good. As you can tell, I’m still irate over her departure….and 85 people return…….for splash and dilution of stories and lack of Nancy. Sigh.

    Wait, all of these children were nominated and Kelley Missal was not? I don’t understand. Austin Williams and Andrew Trischitta are sweet, adorable boys whose acting has improved slightly, but award worthy they are not.

    Andrew Trischitta the kid that played Jack on OLTL was horrid. If he wins I’ll stop watching GH too.
