    I am now opening voting on the 12th Annual Goldie Awards! A few important notes before discussing rules:

    ** Because of dwindling voter participation in recent years for Talk and Game Show categories, those categories are discontinued this year.

    ** The last time there were only four soaps on the air, I eliminated the Younger categories. Not so this year. But those acting categories will have only THREE nominees each. Every other acting race will have FOUR (unless there are ties).

    The rules are as follows. PLEASE READ BEFORE VOTING:

    – These awards cover the calendar year 2014. No material from 2015 should be consider when filling out your ballot.

    – Voting for nominees will last until Friday, April 10, 11:59pm ET.

    – You may only vote if you are a registered member as of today, March 18, 2015.

    – 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.

    – If you feel an actor is on the borderline between categories, you may vote for them in BOTH categories if you wish. If an actor receives enough points to be nominated in both races, they will be nominated in the category where they 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 21 “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 automatic nominees in those categories.

    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
    – Younger Actor
    – Younger Actress
    – Limited/Guest Performance

    – Lifetime Achievement
    (For a living individual who has made a lasting impact on daytime television. Previous winners are ineligible: David Canary, Agnes Nixon, Helen Wagner, Eileen Fulton, Susan Lucci, Robin Strasser)

    – Legacy Award
    (For a deceased individual who made a lasting impact on daytime television. Previous winners are ineligible: William J. Bell, Beverlee McKinsey, Frances Reid, Helen Wagner, Irna Phillips, Jeanne Cooper, Douglas Marland, John Ingle, Macdonald Carey)

    FYC: Lifetime Achievement Award – Elizabeth Hubbard. She started on soaps in 1962 on The Guiding Light, then had a role on The Edge Of Night in 1963. Then she had her first of two signature roles as Dr. Althea Hamilton Davis Bellini Morrison on The Doctors (1964-69, 1970-77, 1981-82). Then a brief stint on One Life To Live, followed by her best known role as Lucinda Walsh on As The World Turns (1984-2010).

    Are talk show hosts eligible in the Lifetime Achievement category? For example, Oprah Winfrey or Phil Donahue?

    FYC for Legacy Award: Douglas Marland

    He started on daytime as an actor – one of his roles was as Lisa’s gynegologist during her ‘phantom pregnancy’ storyline on As The World Turns.

    He wrote scripts for headwriter Harding Lemay in the mid-1970’s (won his first Emmy as part of the Another World team)

    He was the headwriter of The Doctors (1976-77), introduced the Dancy family.

    He worked with Gloria Monty (producer) to save General Hospital from cancellation (1977-79), but left when he disagreed with pairing Luke (her rapist) with Laura (his victim).

    He won Two Emmys (1981 & 1982) for his work as headwriter of Guiding Light (introducing Nola Reardon, played by the amazing Lisa Brown, and Carrie’s complex split personality, played by Jane Elliot)

    He created the cable soap A New Day In Eden; short-lived but excellent.

    He co-created Loving (1983) with Agnes Nixon.

    He then did his best writing on As The World Turns (1985-93). The Snyders, Hughes and Walsh families were prominent.

    He had soap writing rules and understood what the audience wants and needs from soaps; I wish today’s writers would follow his rules!

    He died in 1993 from complications during stomach surgery ):

    He deserves the Legacy Award for his writing, certainly, but also for what he brought to daytime in terms of integrity and intelligent writing!

    Totally agree with Freeman on the suggestion for Elizabeth Hubbard for Lifetime Achievement. And of course Doug Marland is one of my all-time favorite writers! I noticed he is not listed above with previous winners, but I thought he already won.

    Yes, talk and game show hosts are certainly welcome when voting for Lifetime Achievement even though we no longer have those as regular competitive categories.

    My mistake. I went back and checked past nominees and winners and I failed to include the 2012 recipients. I’ve added the following Legacy winners to the above rules. They are ineligible this year:

    Jeanne Cooper
    John Ingle
    Douglas Marland

    Thanks! I’ve changed my Legacy Award portion of my ballot accordingly –

    FYC for Legacy Award: actor Michael Zaslow

    Best known for his work on Guiding Light as the nefarious and complex Roger Thorpe (1971-80; 1999-2006) – he also played David Rinaldi on One Life To Live (1984-86; 1998). He passed away from complications from ALS disease ): He was a truly brilliant actor! He did especially great work with Maureen Garrett, who played Holly on GL; and Robin Strasser, who played Dorian on OLTL. He is missed.

    I am loving the buzz for Elizabeth Hubbard and would be ecstatic if she got some Goldie recognition this year!

    Michael Zaslow is a great choice for the Legacy Award! Two other suggestions: Charita Bauer and Mary Stuart. Bauer played beloved matriach Bert Bauer on Guiding Light for more than three decades before passing away in 1985. Stuart played the prototypical heroine Jo on Search for Tomorrow for its entire run, 1951-1986; she remained a core character for the entire duration of the series. In 1996, she began a recurring role as Meta Bauer on Guiding Light, and appeared until her death in 2002.

    What is the cut-off for Younger Performers? Is it one who turned 25 anytime in 2014?
