One thought on “Our fearless, peerless 100% accurate Daytime Emmy nominations predictions

  1. I thought Kelly Sullivan and Robin Mattson were supposed to be shoo-ins. GH spent so much time invested in Kate/Connie, and Kelly really knocked it out of the park despite some wonky storytelling. I hope Ari Zucker and Bryan Datillo sneak in there too! I actually think Camilla Banus is the favorite to win her category.
