    nomination and first Lead Actress nomination.

    Interesting typo: Jeanne Cooper was 29 when she won her Emmy! (; (I believe she was 79)…

    this list was fun! (: It brought back memories of characters and actors from the past….

    LOL, thanks for pointing that out.  I caught a few others that I had made.

    Pending the outcome of the June 22, 2014 outcome, Doug Davidson’s best-actor Emmy was in 2013. (It was for the 2012-13 television season.) As for the rest, I feel a little of a headache coming up because I can’t believe some of the numbers racked up by some of the people who I don’t think were all that worthy of the high numbers. Not that they’re generally unworthy; but that it’s ridiculous and, ultimately, silly.

    Technically Alderson’s nod this year is for playing Starr not Kiki since the tape is from when she found out Johnny caused the accident.

    What really bugs me about Heather Tom’s 8 in a row nominations for Y&R is that they were the same years that Alison Sweeney was eligible in the younger actress category and was snubbed year after year after year (Christie Clark got 2 nominations for Days and also Charlotte Ross got 2, so the NBC factor isn’t the entire reason)…. it’s insane that HT has 16 nominations, unfair and ridiculous! Perhaps mine is a minority opinion, but I believe that Alison Sweeney ought to have 16 nominations! (I love and adore her – even when I hated Days the most I watched for the antics of Sami Brady and the acting by Ali Sweeney!)

    I hope Alison submits for this year – she definitely has the Emmy reel if she has the good sense to submit it (the fakeout reveal episode)…

    Heather Tom’s “Victoria Newman” pretty much dominated the storylines on Y&R and she was one of the better younger actresses of that decade. I wouldn’t begrudge her of her nominations in favor of Ms. Sweeney, who I think should have had at least two younger actress nominations. If anything, I would say she deserved nominations before actresses such as Ashley Jones and Christie Clark. I never got why she was never nominated for one Emmy. She wasn’t the best actress, but I looked back at some actresses who were nominated in the past – particularly the Younger Actress nominees – and I don’t think many of them were very seasoned actresses or more seasoned than Alison Sweeney. But it took Katherine Kelly Lang over 25 years to be recognized for her work on B&B. I feel if Alison goes to another soap, she could be nominated.

    The Heather Tom bashing is getting out of hand.  The woman is a Daytime legend.  Does she deserve to win this year?  No.  Her reel is not her best work, nor is it the best reel (especially compared to Eileen Davidson).  But HT has earned every nomination and all of her previous wins.  She is a record holder because she started young, stuck around for the long term, and knows how to choose her reels, not because she is necessarily better than everyone else.  And for that reason I don’t understand what makes everyone so defensive about her achievements.  Hardly anyone complains about how many nominations Lucci or Stafford have, and Tom is a far better actress than Lucci and on par with Stafford.

    That’s your opinion and I have a different one, that’s all. I think Robin Strasser is the best actress EVER in daytime history – she has one Emmy and only four nominations. I simply believe that Alison Sweeney is a much better actress and much more deserving of recognition than HT. The list of actresses who are more deserving than HT is a very long one imo. Stupid panelists may reward HT yet again, that’s their opinion and I disagree with it.

    Honestly, I never made it around to watching the submissions so I had no idea.

    Yes, difference of opinion, and that’s fine.  I guess my overall point is that volume of nominees or wins doesn’t mean anything.  I think MTS contributed more to the institution of Daytime soaps in the 80s and 90s than Lucci did, but MTS has 1 nomination and Lucci has 21.  Flannery was 10x better in the 90s than she was after that, but her nominations and wins for B&B didn’t start until the next decade.  But IMO none of those trends means anything.  Nominations and wins are awarded based on a selection of work that aired in a given year.  I don’t think analyzing beyond that has any real validity.

    Thanks for sharing the list, jcar! Interesting and fun to read. I used to keep all these statistics in my head, but that was back in the 80s and early 90s when the awards were relatively new.

    Alison Sweeney should have picked up a Best Younger Actress nod or two during the 90s but definitely not at the expense of Heather Tom! Sheri Saum, Ashley Jones or Christie Clark perhaps but Tom’s work as Victoria Newman still stands and has Y&R fans still hoping she will return to the role one day.

    I agree 100% Heather was amazing during this time period. 

    IMHO, Heather Tom was without a doubt in the top 5 of the Younger Actresses working in the 90’s…  I would say Heather Tom, Sarah Brown, Kimberly Mccoullagh,  Sarah Michelle Gellar and Allison Sweeny were IMHO the best younger actresses of the decade.
