    I am now opening voting on the 10th Annual Goldie Awards! Thanks to everyone for your patience.

    The rules are as follows. PLEASE READ BEFORE VOTING: 

    – Voting for nominees will last until Friday, April 19, 11:59pm ET.

    – You may only vote if you are a registered member as of today, April 1, 2013.

    – In each category, select your top 3 candidates, ranked from 1st to 3rd. Your top choice will receive 5 points, your second will receive 3, your third will receive 2. This is slightly revised from last year’s 5-4-3 scale. With fewer soaps on the air I want to give slightly greater weight to passionate support.

    – If you feel an actor is on the borderline between categories, you may vote for him in BOTH categories if you wish. If an actor receives enough points to be nominated in both races, he will be nominated in the category where he scored more points.

    – You may vote in as many or as few categories as you like. If you do vote in a category, you MUST vote for 3 candidates, or that category won’t be counted.

    – Your ballot will only be considered if it includes at least TWO soaps on it. This is to discourage voters from stacking the deck for one particular soap. If you believe, for instance, that “B&B” had the three best lead actresses, that’s fine, but don’t submit a ballot with 15 B&B actors on it.

    – Drama Series, Writing, Directing, Casting, and Ensemble are NOT included among categories for voting. With only four soaps on the air, those shows will be the default nominees in those categories.

    – As previously discussed, younger acting categories have been eliminated from this year’s awards due to the limited number of soaps. Worthy young actors are eligible for consideration in lead and supporting races. 

    Send your ballot to me via private message. To do so, hover your cursor over my name and select “Send Message” from the drop down menu. In case of a problem with the PM system, when you submit your ballot, please also post a message in this thread saying that you have submitted a ballot. If for any reason I have not received it, I’ll provide an email address and you may resubmit it that way.

    – FYCs are okay, but DO NOT post your entire ballot in this thread.

    VOTING CATEGORIES ARE AS FOLLOWS:

    – Lead Actor

    – Lead Actress

    – Supporting Actor

    – Supporting Actress

    – Limited/Guest Performance

    – Talk/Service Show

    – Game Show

    – Host (Talk/Game/Service)

    – Lifetime Achievement (For a living individual. Previous winners are ineligible: David Canary, Agnes Nixon, Helen Wagner, Eileen Fulton, Susan Lucci)
    – Legacy Award (For a deceased individual. Previous winners are ineligible: William J. Bell, Beverlee McKinsey, Frances Reid, Helen Wagner, Irna Phillips)

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Happy voting!

    Unfortunately, I may not be able to vote this year. I have not really watched any soaps except GH this year, so I have very little basis on which to vote for any other soap.     Perhaps I will vote in some of the non-soap categories, but I’m undecided about that.

    I am in the same boat in a way. So I have decided to do my voting as if I were an Emmy voter. Not trying to guide anyone to do the same thing, but I think it could be a good guide in deciding who to vote for if you are in a pinch. Looking at the clips from the people who submitted for the official race and considering those who didn’t submit their names (like DAYS Renee Jones).

    Excited for these!

    It’s not the worst idea I’ve heard, eastwest.  I watched very little of any soap other than DAYS last year, so I will definitely watch some of the Emmy-submitted material and some other stuff before voting.  Anybody want to throw out some names of people I might check into who aren’t on the Emmy list?  For DAYS, I was disappointed not to see James Scott, Renee Jones, Christie Clark, Melissa Reeves or Alison Sweeney on the list.  The five of them did better work than a lot of the DAYS stars who did submit.

    Looking back at the inagugural awards noticed two things:

    1. The NY soaps were where it was AT! 4/5 nominees and the majority of the winners were on east coast soaps.
    2. Matt Bomer is now a star, but it is nice that the blow of his criminal Emmy snub was lessen w/a win here. Going back to a tradition of the fans really knowing what’s awards worthy.

    In the spirit of GH & Y&R’s milestones, I’ll do two things. First, here’s to another ten years of the Goldies. And some FYC’s for the lifetime/legacy categories:

    Lifetime Achievement
    Claire Labine
    Wendy Riche
    Ed Scott

    Legacy Award
    Gloria Monty
    Paul Rauch

    i might end up voting based on the suggestions you have all given me (to look at sticked thread, look at Emmy performances, etc)…  I have a good idea for some of my votes, but it will be hard.

    What is the eligiblity period?  Is it based on the calendar year 2012?  Does it follow the same eligibility period as Emmy? If so, is OLTL eligible for about a week or two weeks worth of episodes?

    I’m pretty sure we decided to include the last 2 weeks of OLTL in last year’s awards, which is really what the Emmy’s should have done too. 

    FYC: John Ingle and Anna Lee (Edward and Lila Quartermaine) for the Legacy Award.

    Eligibility is calendar year 2012.

    “OLTL” is NOT eligible for these awards because I decided to include those “hanging” episodes in last year’s awards.
