Now that you have predicted the expected nominations for the 2016 Daytime Emmys, it is time to vote for the contenders you WANT to see reap bids.
Using this year’s Daytime Emmy contenders as a starting point, tell us who are the people you would like to see nominated in the key categories.
We will reveal your dream rosters next Wednesday (March 23), the day before the Daytime Emmy nominations are announced.
While our current odds are predicting that “Days of Our Lives” will repeat as Best Drama Series, maybe you prefer “The Young and the Restless,” which shared the award last year in only the second tie in that category’s history. (“Y&R” also tied with “Guiding Light” in 2007).
Likewise, we are predicting that Anthony Geary (“General Hospital”) will win Best Actor for an unprecedented ninth time. He left “GH” in 2015 after having played the iconic role of Luke Spencer on-and-off since 1978. But perhaps you want to see one of the five fellows from “The Young and the Restless” take the trophy.
The acting pre-nominations were determined by eligible peer judges who were sent an online ballot containing all entrants in the lead and supporting performer categories. Those judges were required to view and evaluate clips containing each performer’s work before selecting their top 10 performer choices.
Those that made the cut, including Geary, have advanced to the blue ribbon screening round, which began February 22. That round of voting will determine the final nominees in each category, and also the winners. All nominations will be announced on Thursday, March 24 with the winners unveiled on Sunday, May 1.
