102 February 12th, 2012 Who will land a Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination in the Daytime Drama Acting Categories?

Courtesy/NATAS

The revised Daytime Emmy voting system is in place, and the official voting for the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards got underway last week.   With the new process, 2- minute reels have been selected by each performer,  as an example or excerpt of a their work within the calendar year for consideration for the first phase of getting a shot at the  gold in the six acting categories.  The Pre-Nomination voting will conclude on February 27th and the official announcement of the Pre-Nominees is set by NATAS for March 2nd. Then, the next round of voting begins through March with full submissions by the Pre-Nominees, and the voting through April via Blue Ribbon Panels.  The final nominees for this years awards will be revealed for the first time on May 4th!

So just who is vying for a pre-nom from the Emmy voters? Nelson Branco compiled a list of the six acting categories, in a recent issue of Soap Opera Uncensored.  As you will see, there is some switching of categories from some of the usual suspects, as well as  some very familiar faces, in what looks to be some very hotly contested categories right out of the gate .

After the jump, review the names on the ballot,  and let us know your thoughts on who you think the voters should be seriously considering for a pre-nomination!

    Well obviously loving OLTL and heart broken it is no longer on air…. I would hope that there are nominees and winners from OLTL…. I think from OLTL definately Hillary with Eddie Ford, Eddie Alderson for the brain trauma, RSW is just phenom, but I feel JVD will be put up…..

    I’m just predujice with OLTL and would love for them to take home alot :)

    I see that John Wesley Shipp made the list. I would love to see him win a third Emmy. His portrayal of Crazy Eddie is the reason I started watching OLTL again. However, some of the names do not belong on this list. ONE LIFE’s Andrew Trischitta pouted his way thru the role of Jack Manning. Why Y&R’s Christel Khalile keeps getting noms is beyond me? All she does is whine. cry and speak Valley Speak. B&B’s Jennifer Garies? Huh? Did I miss something here? What has she done that would warrant her getting nominated? Another person I would love to see win is the adorable Patrick Gibbons (Sam, OLTL). This little boy acted circles around some of the adults, even the seasonsed veteran actors. He definitely acted circles around that dreadful Trischitta kid, the pathetic Austin Pecker and that Contessa Williams chick (the girl who played James Ford’s ex).

    i agree john wesley ship deserves another emmy. his eddie ford was something to watch allright. and yes some of the names do not belong on the list Andrew Trischitta being one of them. Patricik Gibbons(sam oltl) acted CIRCLES AND RINGS around ALL the younger cast members and hes all of what 7 maybe. The only younger cast member of oltl that was remotely as good as patrick was Kristin alderson and as far as im concerned she dosen’t count because shes been on the show so long she is a seasoned vet and should not be in this category. my favorite is roger howarth. why is he in the supporting catagory. he deserves a nod in the best actor catagory not supporting.

    I don’t watch all the soaps, so it’s hard to judge who the nominess might or should be. But it will be a travesty (IMHO) if the following actors are not nominated:

    Lead Actress: Kassie dePaiva, Hillary B. Smith and Debbie Morgan

    Lead Actor: Robert S. Woods, Anthony Geary and Darnell Williams

    Supporting Actress: Ilene Kristen and Genie Francis

    Supporting Actor: Roger Howarth (should be lead actor), Jonathan Jackson, Scott Clifton and Dominic Zambrogna

    Younger Actress; Lexi Ainsworth and Kristen Alderson

    Younger Actor: Chad Duell, Eddie Alderson and Austin William (I’ll add Patrick Gibbons just because I just adore that sweet little boy!)

    Chandler Massey certainly deserves an Emmy for an outstanding young actor that he is. Also my favorite…James Scott. He can turn a bad script into gold and is THE best actor ever. I only watch days so can only comment on this soap. I love Ali for best actress and Ari for supporting actress. Matthew Ashford gave a real good performance as a captive in Afghanistan for supporting actor. For younger actress I would have to say Molly Burnett.
    Just my thoughts, Michael.

    I agree I think Erica Slezak should be in the winners circle. I also like Kassie DePaiva. I love them all from AMC and OLTL and wish they could all win or at least give them recognition for having two of the longest running daytime serials that ended way too soon as they had not run their course yet. We want them back!!! They are missed dearly!!!

    I think it would be totally crazy if Trevor St. John didn’t receive a nod. The man was totally awesome. Trevor, Florencia, Kassie, Bree & Melissa Archer were the main reasons why I tuned in so hard….I mean there were others that were amazing too. Let’s not forget about John Paul, Farah & Austin…I watch those rooftop scenes and still cry.

    And I’m going on record and saying, if OLTL doesn’t win Outstanding Drama, I will know that the Emmy’s are a complete total joke. I know the show was cancelled, but it outshines all other shows, without a doubt….there was no better show that One Life, last year….

    Why is Farah Fath and JPL not on this list? Did every watch the same rooftop scenes as I did? In that 1 episode JPL went from quirky character to leading man. Farah was devastating….I cried my eyes out. This scene was one of my all time top ever of OLTL. It is up there with Karen on the stand, Tina going over the falls, Nora throwing the Todd rape trial, and Todd’s execution. I fully expect Florencia Lozano to be nominated and win.

    Tough call– really want actors from AMC & OLTL to get due props for their work, especially now, but no soap is really safe. This could be last daytime emmys & there are many I would like to see recognized. All that participated in the GH intervention episode did great, but that’s my opinion. I think Anthony Geary is still doing some great work, especially this past year. Nathan Parsons deserves a nomination, but Chad Duell and Austin Williams did great work this year! I think Matthew Ashford is doing some of his best work this time around. Other names I would hope to see are Erika Slezak, Laura Wright, Debbi, Crystal C, Vincent I, Michael M, Michael E, Darnell, Steven B, Roger H…

    Stephen Nichols! He was so good in the scene where Tucker learns Devon is his son. It’s time he got an Emmy!! The man is such a wonderful actor. He never got an Emmy as Patch and he never even got a nomination as Stefan Cassadine, which is a crime itself. I am keeping my fingers crossed he finally gets a nomination after so long and wins a very well deserved Emmy for Best Actor!

    LIZA replied

    I hope not. I feel it’s a extremely unfair to the younger actors that older ones get a best actor-type award simply because they weren’t recognized in their glory years.

    An award for work over -time would be lifetime achievement award or something like that- the daytime Emmy committee should create and hand out that type of honor IF there are actors that were truly overlooked that they want to recognize.

    Reply

    Sherry replied

    I don’t want him to get it because of his past work. I was just commenting on he should have a string of Emmys already. His work this past year on Y&R has been wonderful and he DESERVES a nomination for his work as Tucker. He can act circles around most of the younger actors.

    Kristen replied

    I hope Stephen Nichols wins as well! Y&R has always been my show. I’m not even all that familiar with his past work. I love him as Tucker! He is such a talented actor and deserves at least a nomination, and I really hope he wins. His performances after Tucker woke up from the coma, after Katherine humiliated him in court, when he admitted the truth about Diane to Ashley, when he asked Abby if she meant to kill him when she ran him over with her car, and especially the moment he realized Devon was his son, those performances were all brilliant. He more than deserves to be honored, as Tucker!

    Stephy replied

    Whoa, I had to read these comments twice. A tad surprised by the excitement because I haven’t felt any of it. I’ve watched Y&R for about 25 years, and while I’m sure the actor is extremely talented, I feel Tucker (the character) sorta of a dud (so far.) He’s too harsh with Mrs C and boring with Ashley. I even fast-forward him some now. Maybe that will change with the addition of Harmony, but I haven’t seen her or Devon perk him up yet.

    Reply

    Sherry replied

    Well, I just guess it’s who you like and your perception of who is as a good actor. I have watched the show off and on for over 25 years and I think he brings good acting and his character new storylines for many of the veteran cast. Jeanne Cooper has had some really great stuff with Stephen as well as Eileen and Marcy. The scenes with Jess are good too, I just wish there were more of them. If you FF through scenes you may be missing some of the best stuff. :)

    Especially in light of last year’s fiasco of an omission, if Florencia Lozano does not win the Lead Actress category, there is no point in even trying to fix these awards, as they will be broken beyond any repair.

    Kristen Alderson over Kelley Missal? The first has only gotten worse, and the latter has improved beyond the talent the former ever had (as a child – I don’t know what has happened to her in the last 5-6 years) in just a few years. Shenell Edmonds has also improved, but again, not to the point of deserving a nomination. KM held her own with Florencia Lozano and Trevor St. John, which very few of the celebrated adult actors have been able to do (many of whom were listed, but I shall refrain from commenting on their lack of talent and/or commitment, specifically).

    Also, while Andrew Trischitta has improved, he’s not at the point at which he deserves a nomination, much like the adorable and sweet Patrick J. Gibbons and Austin Williams.

    I would love to see Trevor St. John get a very deserved nod, but I read that he no longer submits himself. Assuming that is correct, I am not surprised about his omission.

    I don’t watch Y&R, but Debbi Morgan has so much talent.

    Eddie Alderson is by far the most talented among the younger males on OLTL (much like Kelley Missal is among the female young actresses), and I don’t understand why David Gregory was even cast, let alone listed, although he seems like a very genuine and nice person.

    It going to be interesting. Erika did not summit the “2 minute reel” from Viki 40th episode but from where she catches Echo and Charlie in bed…Florince two minutes is from where Tea rips into Todd when he shows up at Victor Funeral. Kassie summited Blair confronts Jack and demands he is sorry for bullying Shane nearing leading to sucide. Hillary b smitt summited matthrew grabbing nora hand,

    For supporting Irene summited the screen where Roxy begs Clint to say Fratery Row, not sure about other OLTL’s but Bree’s reel is supposely strong (I’m guess telling Nat she not her sister and ripping off the neckless, but we see), Not sure about the other reels. By the way Evens was going to summit herself and the court screen where she gives up the move but forgot about the deadline. She would of likely be the frontrunner if she did.

    Younger Actress: No info on any reels for OLTL’s

    Younger Actor Eddie Alderson summited screen from the confession episode where he tells Clint at the hotel how he killed eddie. Austin Williams summited something about the sucided or leading up to the attempt.

    Supporting Actor: Roger summited screens option TJS. No word on what Mark or John summited

    Lead Actor: Jerry Ver Doran summited some bo and clint screen. Michael Emerson summited John finding out that Liam was “not his”, no word on Robert S Woods

    BB Lead Actress: Heather toms summited Katie finding out Bill nearly slept with Steffy, KKL summited Brooke telling Thomas she cannot trust him after finding out he lied about island sex, Susan Flanney summited a screen talkign about bev being a foster kid. Only other info from BB reels is that John McCook summited screens with Eric talking about how he is hurt because he does not feel Stephine desire him anymore

    Supporting Actress – Melissa Archer always makes the show more exciting! I want to pick the actress that portrayed Allison Stewart – she was phenominal!

    Supporting Actor – definitely RH – he brought some life back into the character of Todd again for me, plus JWS.

    Florencia should win, but I have no faith in the voters since she wasn’t even pre-nominated last year…hopefully the new system will actually work and result in the best being nominated. Other than that Erica Slezak had a great year too. Kassie and Hillary had great moments but not a great year like the other two. I also think Crystal Chappell and Debbi Morgan should get nominated. As for the lead actors no one really stands out to me as having a really great year…I guess Tony Geary would be my #1 choice. Supporting: Ilene Kristen or Kimberly McCullough & Jonathon Jackson, Jason Thompson or Roger Howarth.

    What has Erika Sleazak done that is Emmy-worthy lately? She seems to call in in about 75% of the time in the last several years. I mean, when she’s paying attention, she’s okay, but I don’t see why she is so revered.

    Hello Alexa. Did you see the 40th Anniversary Show in 2011 ? Erika Slezak was Viki in the Courtroom Trying to get Custody of Jessica’s Baby. Then, Niki came out and Niki was in the Courtroom. Niki put Viki in A Warehouse. Then, Niki got the Key and wouldn’t let Viki out of the Warehouse. Jean wouldn’t make Niki give the Key to Viki and Jean was in the Courtroom. The Judge couldn’t get over how Jean did not love the Child. It was Phenomenal how Erika kept going back and forth between Viki and Niki and Jean. That is why I want Erika Slezak to Win Another Daytime Emmy. Jody

    I love how most fans pick they’re favorites because he or she is cute but can’t act. LOL

    Lead Actress – Debbi Morgan (AMC, Y&R) who I think got rob last year should definitely win this year. Finding out the her baby died, those scenes from both her and Darnell Williams were some of the best acting I’ve seen in a long time, bravo guys you both did some excellent acting. And can someone please explain to me why Laura Wright won because I just didn’t see anything to warrant her Emmy.

    Lead Actor & Supporting Actor – Anthony Geary & Jonathan Jackson (GH) both are great actors alone but when we’ve been lucky enough to get them in the same scene we get superb acting, riveting and believable scenes, I just can’t say enough great things about both actors. Can someone share with me what the criteria is for a nomination in the lead actor category because Jon’s acting is beyond most the the actors on that list?
    When Lucky finds out that Luke was the driver of the car that hit and killed his son, the confrontation scenes in the bar were some intense and riveting scenes bravo to both of you, you’re the best father/son team ever.

    Supporting Actress – Gina Tognoni (OLTL) or Genie Francis (Y&R). Genie because everything she touches turns to gold, she is by far one of thee elite actresses and I for one have been over the moon since her return to daytime TV. Gina because her excellent acting finding Victor dead in their living room was superb, she has been ignored for far too long and deserve to win.

    Early word is that Erika (Catching Echo and Charlie in bed together), Florince, Heather Toms (Finding out Bill almost slept with Steffy, Lucci (Erica talking about wanting a drink, KKL (Telling Thomas she can’t trust him anymore for lying and Debbie Morgan (Jessie telling her the baby died( are the standout base on the reels they summited for lead actress with usuall favorites Flanney, Wright, Scott ( who did not summit the I’m a drunk screen) and Michelle are summited weaker reels and opening the door for newcomers.

    In Leads buzz is strong for of close Geary (Invetion), Williams (Baby being stillborn), Scott (screens leading up to ejami sex), Michael Mulalney (Adam ripping anyone at Sharon’s Funeral), Steve Burton (Carly and Jason on the roof after where she askes about Jake being use to save her baby) Michael Emerson (John Finding out that liam was not his) and John McCook (Eric talking about how he feels that Stephanie does not desire him anymore) Meaning looks like Jerry Ver Doran depsite what should be frontrunner status did not summit his best work according to Nelson.

    Hello Paul. The Actor that Plays John McBain is Named Michael Easton. I think there is A Michael Emerson or there is An Actor that has the Last Name of Emerson that is on Night Time TV. He was in Several Episodes of The Practice and I think Lost and he I think was on Law And Order. Jody

    I’m rootin’ for Kassie but would be thrilled with anyone from OLTL. For best supporting actress – Ilene Kristen. I watch other soaps but if someone asked me who would you really like to meet from Y & R? No clue. Ask the same question from OLTL I have a ton of answers. Kassie feels like a niece. I would love to go drinking with Ilene Kristen (I don’t drink so I could do the driving). I just love them all they are like family! Wish ABC would smartin up and bring them back! It’s no shame to be wrong! Get the guy off with the crocs and the weird lady with the glasses. They will never be family much less ever watch them. Barbara PS My husband said to say he whole heartily agrees!

    Without a doubt, Trevor St. John needs to be written in to the field of actors. As always, he was superb this year-right to the very last scene of One Life To Live. This should be Kristen Alderson’s year, too, she was always exceptional.

    Yes, some who know me would say I am a ‘nutjob’, however, I was not all that thrilled with Crystal Chapelle’s return to Days. I was looking forward to seeing her come back, but for me, it just didn’t work. The drug addiction story was just a way to get her off the show when Days did their big clean-out, and it became tiresome. She seemed to be nothing like the old Carly, and I was very disappointed. Alison Sweeney never disappoints-even when she’s ticking me off, I enjoy her. Florencia and Kassie put in great performances for their last year on OLTL. The other 2, I must admit were just speculation on my part, knowing their acting in the past. Without a couple from other shows, I would have all OLTL and Days actress and actors. The only real omission (and, perhaps by his own doing) is Trevor St. John-he should not just be nominated, he should win! But thanks for the concern for my mental health :)

    i am hearing u but cc had one of the worst scrip i had seen on daytime in a long time and she made u feel some as for st john there is no reason he should not be on the list of lead actor and made sad sorry about the nut job it not me it my brain

    Cody replied

    Yes Crystal Chappell return to Days was not so hot and her stories were not own par with her acting ability, she gave good performances inspite of the medicore story , she deserves a nod. Don’t. Blame. Crystal , because the writers didn’t get her character.

    A PRE- nomination? Weren’t there around 14 or so PRE-Nominated for each category in past years? OMG look at best actor- only 16 male actors submitted. LOL

    Maybe the question should be, what 2 actors should NOT be pre-nominated? Seriously, it would be silly to PRE-nominate 14 actors out of 16. The committee needs to slim down the pre-nominees to reflect the fact that it’s not nearly as competitive as it used to be.

    I only have eyes for OLTL, and I want people to win who have never won before, but naturally, all past OLTL winners were wonderful and deserve to be included.

    Actress: Lozano (should win), DePaiva (should have won in the past, consistently good for years).
    Actor: Ver Dorn. Where is Trevor St John’s name?!
    Sup Actress: Kristen, Williamson, Archer.
    Sup Actor: Lawson.
    Young Actress: Where is Kelley Missal’s name?!
    Young Actor: All of the OLTL males in this category have improved over time (Gregory, Williams, Trischitta), but Alderson has been consistently good the longest. Gibbons is so irresistibly cute he must be included (I cannot be objective about him).

    I so agree with your picks-Florencia should win and Kassie should have won several times in the past. TREVOR ST. JOHN, TREVOR ST. JOHN, TREVOR ST. JOHN!!!!!!! The Alderson sibling have been wonderful for years, but always overlooked-travesty!!!!

    I don’t think Susan Lucci or Jeanne Cooper should be on there. I think Erika Slezak should win for her Alters in the Courtroom even if that wasn’t Submitted. Then, I would take Debbi Morgan for All My Children learning that her Child was not her Child and in the Park. Then, I would Take Florencia. However, They will probably Take Susan Flannery. They will probably Take Anthony Geary for the Intervention. However, I would have Darnell for when the Baby was Stillborn and having to Tell Angie that Their Child is not Their Child and even Watching Angie in the Park. I would have Jerry Van Dorn and Robert Woods was pretty good as Bo. I don’t think Jake should be Lead Actor and Tad Supporting Actor. I don’t even think Jake is that Good. Where is Jacob Young ? I would Take Shane and Matthew. I don’t think Roger Howarth should be on there. I thought he was Too Cutesy. I think they should at least Write in Trevor St. John. They probably will have Jonathan Jackson for Supporting Actor. Jody

    YAY!!! John Wesley Shipp is on the list for supporting actor. Not since Sheila Carter and Roger Thorpe have I enjoyed a soap troublemaker as much as I enjoyed Eddie Ford. That does not take away from his four other soap roles. I happen to meet him and David Gregory (Bobby Ford) on Veterans Day, when they taped the ‘HELL’ scenes on ONE LIFE. They both are Facebook friends and nice guys in person. David should have been on that list as well. I would love to see JWS win his third Emmy. Some of the actors on the Younger Actor leave a lot to be desired, The Trischitta kid who played OLTL’s Jack? Really. My least favorite actress Christel Khalil (Lily, Y&R) cannot act her way out of a paper bag.

    If I had to pick my faves to win, from OLTL of course….LOL They would be the following:

    Lead Actress: Florencia
    Lead Actor: Trevor St. John or Jerry Ver Don (Think they are both spectacular)
    Supporting Actress: Going out on a limb and saying Farah Fath. (Those rooftop scenes still make me cry, and I think she is highly underrated.) But I also think Bree Williamson has been overlooked too long, as well as Melissa Archer. Then there’s Kassie De Paiva. OMG this is tough.
    Supporting Actor: This is a tough one…but John Paul, Michael Easton or Mark Lawson. (They all equally did a great job this past year.)
    Younger Actress: Kristen Alderson or Kelly Misal
    Younger Actor: Austin Williams….HANDS DOWN!
    Writng: OLTL
    Best Show: OLTL

    I know I chose multiple people for categories, but that’s because the competition was extremely tough. OLTL was so spectacular that it was just impossible to pick just one. But I will tell you this, it should be a OLTL clean sweep at the Emmy’s because the show was just that damn good! ABC should be ashamed of themselves for canceling this crown jewel.
