All day long we have been tracking and keeping tabs on social media, fans comments, and within the industry of some of the glaring omissions and performers who many have noticed that are MIA from the first cut for contention for this year’s 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Award Pre-Nominations.
Two women from General Hospital, who many felt were a lock to be part of the highly competitive Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series Pre-Nom list did not make the cut. We are speaking of the beloved Kirsten Storms (Maxie) and Kathleen Gati (Dr. Obrecht), who this past year gave stellar performances throughout their storylines.
The TOLN online version of One Life to Live only scored nominations in the Younger Acting categories, however performances in Lead Actor and Actress from Jerry ver Dorn (Cint) and Florencia Lozano (Tea), and Supporting Actor and Actress, Tuc Watkins (David) and Kassie DePaiva (Blair), failed to move on for a slot on the pre-nom ballot.
In addition, in celebrating her 35th anniversary with The Young and the Restless this year, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) did not land a pre-nom slot in the Outstanding Lead Actress, nor did The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont’s (Dollar Bill Spencer) in the Outstanding Lead Actor category Pre-Noms, and both were heavily in storylines throughout the eligibility year.
Another name everyone was talking about today was General Hospital’s Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma). It is our understanding at this time from reports, that Brooklyn was not entered into the competition. Therefore, she was not left off the list of the Pre-Nom finalists in the Younger Actress category.
This year, the quality of work we hear was exceptional and made for highly competitive categories, which in turn, unfortunately, means some people’s Emmy journey ended earlier than had been anticipated.
So, who do you think was the most glaring omission from performers who were entered into the race for the this year’s Daytime Emmy gold? Let us know!
