    This is a randomly-specific topic forum, but it addresses an interesting question…

    GH surprisingly led the soap field with 28 Daytime Emmy nominations; and has 2 nominees in every single acting category (except Supporting Actor, with only 1) And usually, the soap with the most noms takes the most trophies. When GH had the most (23) in 2012, it won the most (5). When Y&R had the most (25) in 2014, it won the most (5)

    I’ve noticed an odd pattern this year in predictions and our Preference forums, that nearly all of us have a GH nominee at #1 or #2 in our predictions… I also feel that a very strong case could be made for a GH victory in every single acting category. 

    So if the trend continues, GH will win the most overall trophies on the night of April 26, and most likely the most acting races since it has the most noms. Now just how many acting categories will it win? In 2012, in won 3 acting races (Lead Actor, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress)

    My predictions would be:

    Outstanding Lead Actor (Jason Thompson)
    Outstanding Supporting Actor (Chad Duell)
    Outstanding Younger Actor (Bryan Craig)

    This kinda seems unlikely to me, for the same show to take all male acting Emmys, so I’ll probably change this in the coming days… However, 3 seems to be the number for the amount of wins it could take in acting. Add your input below!

    I have Chad Duell. I haven’t seen his submission yet but he generally is great. I have Tequan Richmond. I thought his submission was the best. Lisa Locicero to me is the true definition of a supporting actress and she stood out. She is the apple in the bag of oranges and had humor in her reel. Finally I have Geary but I still have to watch all the submissions.

    Two to three

    They are NOT sweeping the acting characters. The CBS/Sony thing will stop that from happening. 

    Here are my new predictions:
    Actor: Anthony Geary (I hope Jason Thompson wins over this mess)
    Actress: Alison Sweeney (I still feel that it’s her this year)
    Supporting Actor: Kristoff John (still have Chad Duell as the spoiler)
    Supporting Actress: Lisa LoCicero (this would be such a cool win and I actually think she will pull it off Rena Sofer-style)
    Younger Actor: Bryan Craig (I hope he loses and it goes to Tequan Richmond; wouldn’t be surprised at a Smith or Ehrich win)
    Younger Actress: Camila Banus (her reel was the best, so I think the best will win out here)

    That’s three for GH, two for Days and one for Y&R.

    Just saw the lead actor submissions. Geary is good but over the top. Jason Thompson is good but subtle. Miller won last time but with a stronger submission.I would say it’s either Thompson or Geary. I was so turned off by what Bryan Craig submitted. I thought Richmond had the best reel.

    The most any soap has ever won is four of the six performance categories. (I’m not factoring guest acting. That was last in play back in 1987, when Martha Byrne and Michael E. Knight won their first Emmys and The Bold and the Beautiful marked its debut on CBS. Yes, that was a little while ago!)

     

    Strange thing with my predictions, as of now, is that I don’t have The Young and the Restless winning anything between series, directing, writing, and the six performance categories. Now, I haven’t looked it over since I shared my predictions; so I may be returning to that because Y&R has a terrific chance to win in guest performance.

    By the way: Santa Barbara (1989) and Guiding Light (2006) were the two soaps which won four of the six performance categories. In both cases, they took the supporting races. (Although, SB did share, in a tie, with All My Children in supporting actress from 1989—referring to SB‘s Nancy Lee Grahn and AMC‘s Debbi Morgan.) Maybe, for those who lean to predicting one soap to win in four acting races, this is the route to go.

    I predict that GH will win in four of the six major acting categories. Probably Lead Actor, Supporting Actor, Young Actor, and Supporting Actress.

    I am predicting it will win four  –

    Lead Actor: Christian LeBlanc, Y&R
    Lead Actress: Alison Sweeney, Days
    Supporting Actor: Chad Duell, GH
    Supporting Actress: Lisa LoCicero, GH
    Younger Actor: Tequan Richmond, GH
    Younger Actress: Haley Pullos, GH
    Guest Performer: Meredith Baxter, Y&R

    I can’t predict for Series, Directing and Writing because I don’t know what each show submitted in those categories.

    (I think GH is also competitive in Lead Actor with Geary or Thompson; and Guest Performer with Donna Mills)

    I’m predicting three to four, Lead Actor (Geary or Thompson), Supporting Actor (Duell) and Supporting Actress (LoCicero or Hughes) with a strong shot at Younger Actor as well (Craig or Richmond).

    The real question is how many acting wins are we predicting for Y&R. They usually clean up, but I don’t have a single Y&R reel ranked above third place in any of the six major acting categories. I expect to be wrong since I’m sure Y&R will take at least one major
    acting award. I’m thinking Y&R’s best chance at a major acting win
    are Tognoni or King but DAYS clearly has the best reel in both of those categories. I’m seriously considering predicting a complete Y&R shutout in the six major acting categories.

    Yes, OLTLfan, that is the more interesting question.  My feeling is that GH will take four of the major six, with one for DAYS and one for Y&R.  (I haven’t seen the lead reels yet, I’m thinking more in terms of numbers distribution.)  It’s hard to think of Y&R not winning any, especially since I feel like B&B doesn’t have a shot of winning any, and that would mean CBS, with which the Pop network is affiliated, wins nothing, when they were only competing with two other soaps.  The other thing is, though, it isn’t that helpful to think of this holistically, because the blue ribbon panel for each category was different.  There’s some overlap, but it may be a mistake to think of the voters as a single group with certain intentions.

    I’m looking forward to watching the rest of the acting reels this weekend and trying to see the full picture.

    That’s three for GH, two for Days and one for Y&R. 

    This looks very balanced and quite possible. However, I’d MUCH rather see Jacob Young win over KSJ if we’re going with a CBS actor. Jacob and Chad the strongest reels. Scott and Kristoff were a bore.

    I want Camila to win… and I haver ranked #1, but someone interestingly pointed out that Days has never won Younger Actress before. I dont know if it’s a big deal, but it’s something to consider… I’d go with Haley Pullos then if that is the case.

    I was trying to think earlier of how many times I’ve thought the person who won younger actress has had the best reel.  It has probably been like once or twice in the last ten years for me personally, which is not to say that I didn’t like the winners, just that Camila Banus having the best reel doesn’t make me feel great about her chances.  Anyway, it would be cool for DAYS to win a category it’s never won before.

    I don’t think a CBS or Sony block will be a big factor this year. If that were the case, I doubt that GH would have done so well with the nominations. With only four soaps and all the frequent soap-hopping among actors (as well as behind-the-scenes staffers), I think pretty much anything goes.

    EmmyLoser, you make an interesting point pertaining to the Young Actor and Young Actress categories. There have been so many years where the winner in one of these categories was a big surprise and/or upset. 

    I think GH will win in a minumum of 3 acting categories, but I am sticking with my prediction of four. I am all for a balanced group of winners representing all four shows and, who knows, we might get that. Nevertheless, GH has the potential for a sweep this year.

    As for how many awards Y&R will win, I do not see it winning more than one or two acting awards this year. I think Y&R’s chances are much better in drama series, writing, and directing. I doubt GH will win in these categories.

    Name a year where a CBS soap was completely shut out of the acting categories. I just don’t see it. GH might do well, but I still bet on CBS taking at least one of the acting categories.

    Also, when GL won its four acting categories, did they lead the nominations? I just don’t recall.
