    Sick with the flu today and ruminated over my favorite daytime actresses who were either never nominated and/or deserved to win. I decided to make my own personal top ten lists in various categories!

    1. TEN ACTRESSES WHO WERE NEVER NOMINATED FOR DAYTIME EMMYS (they were robbed!)

    1. Kathryn Hays as Kim Hughes, As The World Turns. One of my two all-time favorite daytime actresses, she was feisty, loving, warm, nurturing, dramatic, and my all-time favorite t.v. mom! Her “listen, kiddos” always made me smile. She was esp. dazzling in 1990-91 during the Kim/Bob/Susan triangle story, and also when Dan Stewart died. She was magical!

    2. Anna Stuart as Donna Love Hudson, Another World (and Dr. Toni Ferra Powers, The Doctors). Toni was a heroine; Donna was a complex villainess. Her scenes during Toni’s pregnancy when she thought Mike was dead on The Doctors was superb, and all of her work on Another World, esp. scenes with Ellen Wheeler, Anne Heche, Jensen Buchanan (as Marley and Vicky), Kale Browne (Michael), and Matt Crane (Matthew). Simply superb!

    3. Constance Ford as Ada, Another World. Mostly for her scenes with Rachel (Victoria Wyndham) but for all of her work on the show (esp. loved her scenes with Larry Haines in 1989!). She was on the show for 25 years and added so much to it!

    4. Tamara Tunie as Jessica Griffin, As The World Turns. Amazed she was never nominated; her “downfall” storyline when Jessica got weak over a bad guy was great, she was always so strong and fascinating!

    and Margaret Colin as Margo Hughes, As The World Turns. The first Margo was the reason I watched the show as a teenager. I just loved her! I wish she had stayed on daytime.

    5. Karen Morris-Gowdy as Faith Coleridge, Ryan’s Hope. Faith drunk, Faith furious with Jillian for taking Frank away from her, Faith feisty and strong! She was marvelous!

    and Kate Mulgrew as Mary Ryan Fennelli, Ryan’s Hope. If there had been a Younger Actress category (she was 20-24 when she played the role during her original run, 1975-78) she certainly would have won for her amazing performance. She seemed much older and was extraordinary in this role!

    6. Mary Kay Adams as India von Haiken, Guiding Light. India was a complex villainess who added so much to the show.

    7. Kate Collins as Natalie and Janet, All My Children. Particularly the season she played both characters where the contrast was incredible, but Kate Collins was magnificent in both roles!

    8. Nada Rowand as Kate Rescott, Loving. Her love interest – Bernard Barrow’s Louie – won an Emmy, but her Kate was never nominated and I was always surprised. Loving wasn’t an Emmy favorite but she was marvelous!

    9. Frances Fisher as Deborah Saxon, The Edge Of Night. Particularly for 1979-80 when she worked opposite the amazing Kim Hunter as Nola Madison. I loved her character and wish she had stayed on the show for more than her five years!

    10. Marie Masters as Dr. Susan Stewart, As The World Turns. Esp. for her work in 1990-91 but other years too she was simply terrific!

    (there are dozens more I could cite. Some that come to mind are: Holland Taylor, TEON; Catherine Hicks, RH; Sarah Felder, RH; Julie Adams, Capitol; Anne Sward, ATWT; Lindsay Frost, ATWT; Barbara Rodell, ATWT; Melanie Smith, ATWT; Sofia Landon, GL; Millette Alexander, GL; Charita Bauer, GL; Helen Wagner, ATWT; Susan Marie Snyder, ATWT; Melanie Smith, ATWT; Jennifer Ashe, ATWT and Loving; Louise Sorel, Days; Lauren Koslow, Days; Tudi Wiggins, Love Of Life; Nancy Frangione, AW; Yasmine Bleeth, RH; Candice Earley, AMC; Judith Barcroft, AMC; Lynne Thigpen, AMC; Marcia McCabe, SFT; Brenda Dickson, Y&R; Alice Barrett, AW; Mina Kolb, Generations; Jada Rowland, The Doctors; Kathleen Turner, The Doctors; Lisa Peluso, Loving; Marilyn Chris, OLTL; Patricia Elliott, OLTL; Judith Chapman, RH and Y&R; Carmen Duncan, AW; Alicia Coppola, AW; Christine Tucci, AW; Sandy Gabriel, AMC – I am sure I have forgotten many others!)

    TEN LEAD ACTRESSES NOMINATED WHO DESERVED TO WIN EMMYS (in alphabetical order)

    Nancy Addison, RH
    Leslie Charleson, GH
    Kassie DePaiva, OLTL and Days
    Ellen Dolan, ATWT
    Sharon Gabet, TEON
    Kim Hunter, TEON
    Beverlee McKinsey, AW
    Alison Sweeney, Days
    Victoria Wyndham, AW
    Colleen Zenk, ATWT
    (and Deidre Hall, for this year, for Days!)

    TEN SUPPORTING ACTRESSES NOMINATED WHO DESERVED TO WIN EMMYS

    Beth Ehlers, GL
    Maureen Garrett, GL
    Renee Elise Goldsberry, OLTL
    Eileen Herlie, AMC
    Robin Mattson, GH and Santa Barbara
    Meg Mundy, The Doctors
    Kathleen Widdoes, ATWT
    Bree Williamson, OLTL
    Jaclyn Zeman, GH
    Arianne Zucker, Days

    10 ACTRESSES WHO WON OR WERE NOMINATED BUT DESERVED NOMINATIONS FOR OTHER SHOWS

    Denise Alexander as Mary McKinnon, AW
    Lisa Brown as Nola Reardon, GL
    Jane Elliot as Carrie Preston, GL
    Judi Evans as Paulina Cory, AW
    Ilene Kristen as Delia Reid Ryan, RH
    Robin Mattson as Janet, AMC
    Beverlee McKinsey as Alexandra Spaulding, GL
    Hillary B Smith as Margo Hughes, ATWT
    Rena Sofer as Quinn Fuller, B&B
    Gina Tognoni as Kelly Cramer, OLTL

    A FEW YOUNGER ACTRESSES:

    Yasmine Bleeth, RH
    Gina Tognoni, OLTL
    Jennifer Ashe, Loving and ATWT
    Erin Torpey, OLTL (nominated)
    Lisa Trusel, Days (nominated)
    Kirsten Storms, GH (nominated)
    Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, B&B (nominated)
    Haley Pullos, GH (nominated)
    Kirsten Alderson, OLTL (won for GH)
    Brooklyn Rae Silzer, GH (nominated)

    Additionally, Elizabeth Hubbard – who won for The Doctors – should have won at least 1 Emmy for her Lucinda Walsh on ATWT; and Robin Strasser should have been nominated way more than just 4 times (81, 82, 83 and 85) and it was crazy that she was never nominated again after 1985. imo she should have the most Emmys of any daytime actress!

    When I read your list of actresses who were never nominated, it was like reliving my entire history with daytime. Or, to be more specific, my entire history of anticipating the announcement of the nominations, only to be disappointed by the exclusion of some favorite or another. Freeman, you did a great job of compiling that list! The one that really stood out to me was Kathryn Hays. I was certain she would be nominated for her work in 1990/91, although there were many other years for which she might have been nominated. Thinking back, I especially loved the scenes in which Kim would tell off another character. I remember when she confronted Seth Snyder. OMG. I especially loved it when she would say to Barbara, “Listen, toots.” And the other variations like kiddo, pal, etc. Thank you for reminding me of that, Freeman! I also loved the story of her wedding to Bob and the secret admirer storyline that started later that year with John Wesley Shipp and Julianne Moore. ATWT was so good back then.

    The list of nominees who never won reminded me of the pain every year, rooting for my favorites, only to watch them lose time and again, while the same people seemed to win over and over.

    I don’t have the time or energy today to make a full top ten list, but here are a few people who come to mind:

    I’m also considering supporting actresses and younger actresses for this instead of separating them.

    Never Got Nominated, But Deserved To Win:

    Sarah Buxton as Annie Douglas, Sunset Beach: I know that “Sunset Beach” actors never really stood much of a chance at the Emmy’s, but one of the biggest snubs ever was not nominating Sarah Buxton for an Emmy. Her Annie was the kind of role that would have WON an Emmy if it was on say “General Hospital” or “Young & Restless”. And to this day Annie remains the most memorable character that show ever produced.

    Kristina Wagner as Felicia Jones Scorpio, General Hospital: Kristina was on “GH” for so long that it is kind of shocking she never got her due. Especially given the surprising range she showed during Maxie’s heart transplant when Felicia found out that Maxie had gotten BJ’s heart. That display of raw emotion was unlike anything she ever showed before.

    Catherine Hickland as Lindsay Rappaport, One Life To Live and as Tess Wilder, Loving/The City: Given her long career in daytime it is very upsetting she never got a single nomination. Her work on “OLTL” was often the highlight of the episode and she was given ample oppurtunity to shine with episodes like “Babes Behind Bars” and Lindsay’s “Woman Of The Year” ceremony.

    Kate Collins as Natalie Marlowe/Janet Green, All My Children: In the 1980’s, Kate Collins was the character to watch (besides Erica Kane) on “All My Children” gold-digging snob Natalie eventually became a heroine and almost saint-like figure in Pine Valley. Collins gave tour de force work as Natalie’s evil twin sister Janet entered the mix and she produced one of the most memorable storylines in AMC history as Janet threw Natalie into a well and assumed her life.

    Susan Batten as Luna Moody, One Life To Live: Susan Batten is a one of a kind actress and her work as Luna Moody was also one of a kind. She brought a lot of heart and depth into the character, so much that she’s remembered even today as one of the most memorable characters in OLTL history. Her lack of nomination for OLTL is baffling.

    Lynn Herring as Lucy Coe, Port Charles: Beloved on “GH” Herring was a fan favorite who got her own spin-off in “Port Charles”. Her work on this show was nuanced, balancing light comedy and high drama and Herring gave it her all. The fact that as the star of this show she never got a single nomination for her efforts is shocking; especially as Kin Shriner got nominated for his work and some of the younger actresses (Monaco, Hershey Presley) got nominated.

    Got Nominations, But Were Snubbed For Other Roles That Deserved Emmy’s:

    Beverlee McKinsey as Alexandra Spaulding, Guiding Light: nominated multiple four times for “Another World” she never won, and it is absolutely shocking that McKinsey never got a single nod for her career defining role on “Guiding Light.”

    Robin Mattson as Janet Green Dillon, All My Children: She’s given memorable performances on many shows and earned three nominations for “Santa Barbara” and one for “General Hospital”, but she was never nominated for her wacky work on “All My Children.”

    Gina Tognoni as Kelly Cramer, One Life To Live: It has been amazing to see her career thrive on CBS, but it is her work on ABC’s “One Life To Live” that she deserved to be nominated for and was snubbed consistently for.

    Amber Tamblyn as Emily Bowen Quartermaine, General Hospital: Emily was often portrayed as the heart of “General Hospital” as she brought love to the Quartermaine family. Tamblyn’s performance was full of youthful energy and a lot of clear talent. It is a shame she was never nominated for her work. Especially as Emily often brought out the softer side of characters like Alan, Jason and Sonny.

    Actresses Who Got Nominations, But Never Won:

    Lynn Herring as Lucy Coe, General Hospital: Twice nominated she never won for this role. Sadly.

    Robin Strasser as Dr. Dorian Cramer Lord, One Life To Live: As mentioned by freemangriffin Robin deserved to be nominated after 1985, and the fact that she never was is shocking. Especially given the level of work she gave over the years.

    Kassie DePavia as Blair Daimler Cramer Manning, One Life To Live and as Eve Donovan Larson, Days of Our Lives: For her decades long career in soaps, DePavia has gotten only two nominations. Once for “OLTL” and once for “DOOL.” She has deserved multiple other nominations, and was snubbed for perhaps her best work ever during OLTL’s “LIVE WEEK” in which she gave a fantastic performance as Blair confronted Todd about his giving her baby away.

    Victoria Rowell as Drucilla Winters, Young & Restless: This one goes without saying: Victoria Rowell deserved to win an Emmy.

    Melody Thomas Scott as Nikki Newman, Young & Restless: I think it would be fair to say that MTS is the actress people often forget can act. She earned a nomination in 1999 but lost to Susan Lucci on her historic win. For one reason or another (likely internal politics at CBS/Y&R) she has never gotten another nomination.

    Kimberlin Brown as Sheila Carter, Y&R/B&B: She has played the notorious villain Sheila on two soaps and yet, only got a single nomination in 1993. This is a fact that I think should be fixed soon, even if I’ve lost respect for her based on her political views.

    robbalto, thank you for reminding me about Kathryn Hays’ work during the Douglas Cummings storyline (: her work with Julianne Moore was esp. amazing, and also with Scott DeFreitas (I miss him and wish he would return to soaps). If you ever get a chance to watch her performances during Dan Stewart’s death and aftermath she was simply superb in those scenes!

    boidiva, thank you for reminding me about Catherine Hickland as Lindsay Rappaport! I know I forgot a few favorites; also, Amber Tamblyn’s wonderful Emily Q! Fortunately Robin Strasser did win an Emmy (in 1982) but she deserved so many more nominations and wins! (btw, are Sunset Beach episodes available on YouTube? I didn’t watch that show very much and don’t remember Sarah Buxton’s Annie).

    I am certain I could think of even more actresses I loved over the years; the high quality of acting on soaps has always been astonishing. Perhaps because they get to develop roles over years there is a greater impact on me than in movies or theater…

    As for the male actors:

    Never Nominated, Deserved To Win:

    Sean Kanan as Deacon Sharpe, Y&R/B&B: Kanan’s work on “GH” was always very strong, but it was his role as bad-boy Deacon on CBS’s two soaps that really showed his skills and it is absolutely unfair that he never got a single nomination for his efforts.

    Randolph Mantooth as Alex Masters, Loving: By the time he made way to daytime in Loving’s fictional town of Corinth, PA Randolph Mantooth was already a veteran of primetime TV and a fairly well known star. So it is kind of shocking that his work never earned a nomination. Yes, “Loving” wasn’t particularly well represented at the Emmy’s, only earning a handful of nominations during its run (most notably for Celeste Holm), but Mantooth deserved to be nominated.

    Trevor St. John as Todd Manning/Victor Lord Jr: A lesser actor probably would have failed miserably given the circumstances St. John dealt with at “OLTL.” He was a recast for Roger Howarth, an actor so popular in the role it seemed impossible for anybody to replace him. But, St. John managed to make the character his own and became a bonafide fan favorite in his own right. And when he was thrown right into front-burner story after front-burner storyline he delivered each and every time. Memorable archs for him include: Todd on death row; Todd fighting Marcie for custody of baby “Tommy”/”Sam”, and Todd’s continued relationship with Blair Cramer. He even managed to make the best of potentially career-killing story arcs like Todd romancing Marty while holding her hostage and the reveal that he was Victor Lord Jr and not Todd Manning.

    Paul Michael Valley as Ryan Harrison, Another World: Probably the one who is least remembered from this list, at least today (only because of how long ago AW was cancelled), but PMV was insanely popular during the his brief run on “AW”, and the fact he never got nominated is sort of outrageous, especially considering some of the actors who have gotten nominated over the years (Cameron Mathison and Aiden Turner, I’m talking about you).

    John Callahan as Edmund Grey, All My Children: During his tenure on “AMC”, Callahan had many ups and downs as the character went through tragedy after tragedy and Callahan’s personal life interfered with his character (his nasty divorce from Eva LaRue essentially derailed his character). But when he was at the top of his game he was spectacular to watch, and it is a crying shame he never got his due.

    Kamar de los Reyes as Detective Antonio Vega, One Life To Live: This is an actor who doesn’t ever get enough credit for the work he did. He took what easily could have been a stock-character, the angry gangster from the wrong side of the tracks and turned him into a memorable, likable, viable character who stayed on the show for decades (with brief absences here and there). Often saddled with terrible writing and idiotic storylines that tried their best to render Antonio unlikeable and annoying, De los Reyes always managed to overcome that.

    Nominated, But Never Won:

    Ricky Paull Goldin, as both Gus Aitoro, Guiding Light and Dr. Jake Martin, All My Children: For his two popular character he received four acting nominations during his long career as an actor. Never winning a single one.

    Tom Eplin as Jake McKinnon, Another World: For playing Jake on “AW” for nearly a decade this talented, popular actor received ZERO nominations for his work. He received his only nomination in 2001 for playing Jake on “As The World Turns”, a tenure that was too short for a man this talented.

    Stephen Schnetzer as Cass Winthrop, Another World: For his lengthy run on “AW” he received a single nomination for lead actor in 1990, losing to A. Martinez for “Santa Barbara.” This actor deserved better than that and should have earned more nominations.

    Mark Derwin as AC Mallet, Guiding Light and Ben Davidson, One Life To Live: For his work as AC, Derwin was rightfully nominated for Lead Actor in 1993, one of the many actors who lost to David Canary. For his work on OLTL, Derwin was given ZERO nominations despite fantastic work.

    and just for fun:

    Nominated, but didn’t deserve to be:

    Cameron Mathison as Ryan Lavery, All My Children: One of the weakest actors to ever grace daytime, it is an embarrassment that Mathison twice for his role on “AMC”.

    Aiden Turner as Aiden Devane, All My Children: This is an actor who barely even acted and was mostly known for running with his shirt off in tight jeans. He routinely contributed nothing of value to “AMC”, except stilted delivery of lines and a confused expression when he was asked to “emote.”

    Alicia Leigh Willis as Courtney Matthews, General Hospital: One of the weakest performers to ever grace daytime TV it is absolutely disgusting that this abomination of an “actress” was given TWO nominations for Younger Actress.

    Lindsey Morgan as Kristina Corinthos Davis, General Hospital: I remember watching her “reels” when she was nominated in 2013 and being physically embarrassed by her terrible performance. It was painful to watch and was symbolic of the kind of acting that gives soap operas a bad reputation. It just wasn’t good.

    Jacqueline MacInnes Woods as Steffy Forrester, Bold & Beautiful: A pretty face without much talent. She is to daytime what Sofia Vergara, Megan Fox or Olivia Munn is to Primetime TV.

    Nominated – and won – and shouldn’t have for me was Kevin Mambo for Guiding Light – I watched the show almost daily during his 3 years (2 Emmy wins and 1 additional nomination) and I cannot remember his character or his acting at all – not even a little tiny bit. He was a complete and total waste of time, at least for me, on the show.

    These are great, guys. Because I was largely one network (NBC), and even among that pretty heavily one soap (DAYS), I don’t have the same frame of reference, but some of these really resonate with me. I know that back when there were a dozen soaps on the air, the competition for getting nominated was really stiff, which makes some of the older omissions seem at least more comprehensible while the more recent ones are in some cases just baffling. Here are some standouts over the years:

    Catherine Hickland on OLTL — Usually the first person who comes to mind for me with lists like this. Unbelievable she was never even nominated for her phenomenal work as Lindsey, a character I just loved.

    Judi Evans on AW — I know she won for GL and has been nominated for DAYS, but it’s astounding she was never nominated for her consistently great work as Paulina, especially considering that AW was getting pretty decent Emmy recognition for its actors around that time. Also a shame that Mark Pinter wasn’t nominated for his memorably devilish Grant.

    Trevor St. John on OLTL — It is truly stunning he was never nominated for successfully inhabiting an already iconic role, making it his own and taking it to new places. A lot of writing for the character was questionable to say the least, but his performances were fantastic.

    And to throw out just a few people I feel really deserved a win and didn’t get it:

    Arianne Zucker — I think I’ve mentioned it enough times, but I still can’t get over Julie Pinson winning that supporting actress Emmy that, IMO, should clearly have been Zucker’s.

    James Scott — Not a case of basically robbery like above, but it stings that when the Emmys finally decided to stop ping-ponging between Anthony Geary and Christian LeBlanc, as they had for the past six years, and award someone new, Scott wasn’t able to capitalize. It also bugged me that Michael Park (who’s great) beat him on both of his nominations, when one each would have felt like a much more deserved distribution.

    Blake Berris — Like a lot of people, I thought he should have won in younger actor the year his co-star Darin Brooks did, but he was excellent after Nick got out of prison. He was great that year that ended with Gabi, Kate and Sami dumping Nick in the river was great, and the half year after that between him returning from the “dead” and his actual murder was stellar.

    Never nominated:

    Catherine Hickland (Lindsey OLTL) How she wasn’t nominated for Lindsey’s Woman/Murderer of the year performance is beyond me. Should have been an easy win.

    Phil Carey (Asa OLTL) & John Ingle (Edward GH) Both should have easily won supporting actor for taking characters that you should hate and making them lovable.

    Wally Kurth (Ned GH, Justin DOOL)

    Greg Vaughn (Lucky, GH & Eric DOOL)

    Never won:

    Jason Thompson (Patrick GH) He should have Tony Geary’s last two Emmys.

    Kathy Brier (Marcie OLTL) She should have won for the eps when Marcie held Viki hostage in Paris, Texas. Ridiculously, she wasn’t even nominated that year.

    Jackie Zeman (Bobbie GH) Between BJ’s death, Tony’s affair and Carly being her daughter, she should have multiple Emmys.

    Leslie Charleson (Monica GH) I love Erika Slezak and she completely deserved her 4th Emmy, but Charleson was stellar that year too for her breast cancer arc. It should’ve been a tie.

    Diedre Hall (Marlena/Hattie DOOL) Hopefully that will be rectified soon.

    Kristian Alfonso (Hope/Princess Gina DOOL)

    Kirsten Storms (Maxie GH) How she never won younger actress is beyond me.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, three times that Emmy got it wrong are:

    —-Vanessa Marcil winning against extremely stiff competition, including co-star Robin Christopher, Cady McClain and Rebecca Budig in career-defining storylines.

    —Brad Maule losing to Justin Deas in 1995. His work in 1994 was legendary and deserved an Emmy win!

    —Jacob Young’s inexplicable Emmy win for GH. Just inexplicable considering how horrifically miscast he was as Lucky Spencer.

    I agree with so many of the above, and would like to add one: Tonya Lee Williams (Olivia, Y&R) in 1996 during that year when Nathan cheated on her with Keesha and Keesha was diagnosed with HIV. It was an incredible storyline, with powerful performances from Shemar Moore, Victoria Rowell, but most especially by Tonya Lee Williams. Both Tonya and Victoria Rowell were nominated that year. I wish Tonya had won, and that she would come back to Y&R.

    I always wanted to see Tonya Lee Williams and Victoria Rowell win for Y&R. They were terrific and brought so much to the show. The Olivia/Nathan/HIV story is one of the reasons why I got hooked on Y&R in 1996.

    I’d also like to see Melody Thomas Scott and Eileen Davidson win for their roles on Y&R (Yes, I know Eileen won for Days).

    I know I’ve mentioned this before, but considering the length of her career it seems kind of odd to me that Robin Mattson does not yet have an Emmy.

    My daytime soaps viewing goes back to the 1980s, with exposure to ABC’s Ryan’s Hope as I was in elementary school from the late-1970s to early-1980s.

    The one name which stands out as the worst snub—meaning, not as little as one nomination—was Kate Collins.

    By my estimation: Collins—who regularly played Natalie Hunter on ABC’s All My Children from 1985–1992—could have had up to four nominations for lead actress in a drama series. To deliver at that level within a time period of seven seasons—absolutely sensational. By my count: 1985–86 (electrifying debut season in which she commanded attention as Natalie fought Erica for Jeremy); 1987–88 (harrowing work as Natalie was raped by Ross; Robert Gentry was nominated for lead actor); 1989–90 (the season which paired Natalie with Trevor romantically; an unusual and striking pair); 1991–92 (with the introduction of Natalie’s twin sister Janet “From Another Planet”).

    I applaud the efforts by everyone.
