Hi all, I’ve decided to open voting on the 9th Annual Goldie Awards. I apologize that they’re later than usual, but with the Daytime Emmy nominations also coming up, perhaps these will be even more relevant.
I’ll try to keep the rules simple. Please read before voting:
– Voting for nominees will last until Friday, May 11, 11:59pm ET.
– You may only vote if you are a registered member as of yesterday, April 28.
– In each category, select your top 3 candidates, ranked from 1st to 3rd. Your top choice will receive 5 points, your second will receive 4, your third will receive 3. (This scale will give greater weight to second and third place contenders than a simple 3-2-1 scale.)
– You may vote for a borderline actor in BOTH lead and supporting 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 the most 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 top three best lead actresses, that’s fine, but don’t submit a ballot with 21 B&B actors on it.
– 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. I have heard of problems in the past where not all private messages have gotten through, so 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.
– OLTL’s January episodes ARE ELIGIBLE for this awards cycle. Though the series ended outside of the 2011 calendar year, those hanging episodes will not be eligible next year, so please consider them as your make your decisions for these awards.
– Unless there is a tie, there will be 3 nominees for Drama Series, Writing, Directing, Casting, and Ensemble. There will be 4 nominees for Talk Show, Game Show, Host, Lifetime Achievement, and Legacy. There will be 5 nominees in the drama acting races.
The categories are as follows:
– Drama Series
– Lead Actor
– Lead Actress
– Supporting Actor
– Supporting Actress
– Younger Actor
– Younger Actress
– Limited/Guest Performance
– Drama Writing
– Drama Directing
– Drama Casting
– Drama Ensemble
– 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)
– Legacy Award (For a deceased individual. Previous winners are ineligible: William J. Bell, Beverlee McKinsey, Frances Reid, Helen Wagner)
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Happy voting!April 29, 2012 at 12:28 pm #422280

FYC: IIleen Kristin- Supporting Actress- OLTLApril 29, 2012 at 9:20 pm #422284
Haven’t voted, but thought I could FYC for some ppl.
David Canary (ex-Adam/Stuart, AMC)
Andrea Evans (ex-Tina, OLTL)April 30, 2012 at 8:43 am #422285
Yay! I love the Goldies.April 30, 2012 at 3:49 pm #422286
FYC: Lead Actress- Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord/OLTL)
Slezak was (thankfully) front and center during One Life’s final season with the end of Viki’s marriage to Charlie and the rekindling of her relationship with Clint and Slezak delivered some of the finest performances of her 40+ year daytime career.
FYC: Supporting Actress- Susan Haskell (Dr. Marty Saybrooke/OLTL)
Character assassination never looked so good. I wouldn’t have blamed her for half-assing it considering they were writing her character into the ground, but Haskell completely committed to her alter-ego’s nervous breakdown and knocked this story out of the park.April 30, 2012 at 7:20 pm #422287
