In a hotly contested race at this year’s 44th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, five men, two who have been previous winners in this category, vie for this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
The five finalists include: Days of our Lives icon, John Aniston (Victor), who after decades has landed his first ever Daytime Emmy nomination. Aniston faces stiff competition from his DAYS castmate James Reynolds (Abe), General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael) and Jeffrey Vincent Parise (Ex-Carlos/Joe Rivera) and former Y&R star, Steve Burton (Ex-Dylan).
From Steve Burton’s performance when Dylan learns that baby Sully is not his, to Chad Duell’s reel where Michael loses both the love of his life and his brother in the same year, to Parise’s tour de force as a hit man trying to stay alive and out for revenge, and then playing the bad boy’s brother, the voters had their work cut out for them.
Watch their nominated work after the jump. Then let us know who you think should win the Outstanding Supporting Actor prize on April 30th when the ceremonies are live-streamed in the comment section below!
