    This is the most disappointing category this year – I only truly like ONE of the nominees, and am really upset that Blake Berris wasn’t nominated ):

    1. CHAD DUELL as Michael Quartermaine, General Hospital. He was GREAT during A.J.’s hospitalization/death and again when Michael learned Sonny killed A.J. He is the only nominee I like and the only one who hasn’t won an Emmy yet. This is his third nomination.

    2. KRISTOFF ST. JOHN as Neil Winters, The Young and the Restless. He played a blind man and this gets awards. But I don’t particularly like Neil, and I didn’t think the scenes he submitted (his talk with Shemar Moore’s Malcolm) were at all strong for an Emmy win. Sympathy over the death of his son may play a part in his nomination. He has won twice in the past.

    3. SCOTT CLIFTON as Liam Spencer, The Bold and the Beautiful. I find Liam totally annoying! I know others like his work, so be it, but I cringe when I see Liam on my screen. I just plain don’t like his character, who I call “The Waffler”. I guess he might have submitted saying “goodbye” to Hope after the baby died….

    4. JACOB YOUNG as Rick Forrester, The Bold and the Beautiful. Guessing it was the Oct. 24 & 27 episodes where Rick learns about Caroline and Ridge. It was good work, but boy, do I dislike this character and his acting choices! JMO…

    1.  Jacob Young: not generally a fan, but thought he did great last year.
    2.  Kristoff St John: generally a fan, but didn’t think he was that great last year.
    3.  Chad Duell:  It’ll depend on his submission, but I thought in the big moments he ws conveying either anger or hurt.  If he has something where he can do both well simultaneously, he would be well deserving.
    4.  Scott Clifton:  See Freeman’s comments above.

    My Order of Preference:

    1. Chad Duell

    2. Jacob Young

    3. Scott Clifton

    4. Kristoff St. John

    Duell has really come into his own as an important GH character. His storyline throughout 2014 was very demanding, and he had full command of his scenes, despite the sometimes weak scripting and awkward direction. Like Duell, Young has also evolved; I do not think he had the material for a win this year, but he may have a strong reel. As for Clifton, I try to separate the character from the actor. I find his work to be consistently strong and convincing. I like St. John too, but since he and Clifton have won previously in this category, they are not my top picks.

    Robbalto, Jacob Young submitted two strong back-to-back episodes (Oct. 24 & 27) in which Rick learned that Caroline was involved with Ridge – his best work of 2014. It’s a strong reel. I’m hoping Chad Duell has submitted wisely. I was completely underwhelmed by Kristoff St. John’s reel (blind Neil has a heart-to-heart talk with Malcolm) but he could get a sympathy vote (his son died recently) and his playing blind could help him as well. Haven’t heard what Scott Clifton submitted yet.

    I also found this category somewhat disappointing, but it’s also the one where I’m least familiar with the work of the nominees.  I will have to see the reels before really making any fair assessment.  Nothing I saw from the other three impressed me that much, so I’m backing Chad Duell at the moment.  It was particularly disappointing to see Scott Clifton in here over some of the other options.  While I don’t really like Liam Spencer all that much, I more have found Clifton’s acting to generally be short of spectacular.  A lot of times he’ll hit an emotion hard and really drive that through, but it tends to lack nuance and complexity.  When I watch his reels, I generally think, “Yes, Liam is ANGRY” or “Yes, Liam is SAD,” but I feel like I should be getting more than that, just based on what I’m seeing in those episodes.

    The reels are up for Supporting Actor!

    Wow. I haven’t even watched the rest of reels; I just finished Chad Duell’s and it’s phenomenal. He completely stands out on his own, with sublime supporting work from Maurice Benard and Maura West. I really liked the writing in this episode as well…

    Chad leads the scene and exhibits are strong, equal amount of anguish, discord, struggle, and general emotion. I’ll have to see other ones before I list and predict; but his is already hard to beat.

    Yes! I would have rather seen Blake Berris here; the true winner. Scott Clifton’s reels of past years have been completely over the top and overrated. Especially last year’s; I couldnt believe most thought he was going to win.

    Just watched Scott Clifton’s reel. It’s a lot more subtle than his from last year; but Darin Brooks equally shines in it. It could have easily been his submission as well.

    I will definitely check these reels out tonight.  I’ll try to get all of my irritation about Blake Berris’s omission out during the day so I won’t be distracted by that.

    This blue ribbon panel blew it big time – not only Blake Berris, who submitted a BRILLIANT episode, but also Darin Brooks, who outshone Scott Clifton by a million to one in SC’s submission (don’t know what DB submitted)… I truly only like one of the four actors but I have a crummy sinking feeling they will give Kristoff St. John a third Emmy (blind character + son’s real life death + Y&R – oh brother! I couldn’t wait for his reel to end! BORING!)

    I’ve gone in to more detail elsewhere, and there is a HUGE drop in quality between #1 and #2, but here’s my ranking of the four reels:

    1. Chad Duell, GH
    2. Jacob Young, B&B
    3. Scott Clifton, B&B
    4. Kristoff St. John, Y&R

    I really hope Chad Duell wins (:

    SC is completely overrated. That was also completely Darin Brook’s reel from start to finish. How Scott got in over Darin or Blake is mind-numbing.

    Haven’t watched Jacob Young’s reel. I thought KSJ’s was O-K but not particularly third Emmy-worthy. He could benefit from having Shemar in it though…

    Ranking based on personal preference:
    1. Chad Duell (GH) – It’s nice seeing most people here (so far) back Duell. I found his reel thrilling and Duell plays “betrayed” well.
    2. Jacob Young (BB) – Overall strong reel.
    3. Scott Clifton (BB) – I don’t think he was bad, but he was overshadowed by Darin Brooks. I wonder if Darink Brooks also submitted this reel…
    4. Kristoff St. John (YR) – Honestly, I found this reel just too long and meandering. And there were so many flashbacks that I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to consider those as well. However, I could see voters (and long time viewers) go nuts over it.

    I think this is between Duell and Young.

    An uneven lineup mostly because Scott’s an outlier.

    #1 Chad Duell, GH: This is one of his best performances, ever, of his 5 year show tenure. It’s a powerful 10 minutes which he completely commands. Demanding performance.

    #2 Jacob Young, B&B: I havent seen his work, really, since All My Children (which he was robbed a lot for), so I was pleasantly surprised with how strong this performance was. He may suffer from sharing the screen with other prominent players, Thorsten Kaye, Linsey Godfrey, John McCook.

    #3 Kristoff St. John, Y&R: A long and sometimes numbing reel. It was a good compilation of current and past stories, and he could certainly benefit from having Shemar Moore alongside him… Sadly, I could see him winning a third time.

    #4 Scott Clifton, B&B: This was almost embarassing for Clifton as Darin Brooks shined in his reel through and through. Brooks gave a powerful leading performance here, and somehow was not recognized for it…

    Who Will Win: Kristoff St. John, Y&R
    Who Should Win: Chad Duell, GH

    Scott Clifton
    Fine but boring. Clifton had a couple of good moments but nothing strong enough to win him another Emmy.

    Chad Duell
    Killer reel. There’s lots of yelling but also some tears and quieter moments when he realizes AJ wasn’t guilty.
    It’s not a ton of range but that’s true for all these reels and Duell’s performance just towers above his competition.

    Kristoff St. John
    Reel starts well with Neil struggling with his blindness. But it’s poorly edited and overlong. I wish all the flashbacks
    were edited out. They distract from the actual story and makes it feel like the reel is padded. They add nothing to the
    reel and just make it longer than it needs to be. Overall, he has some good moments here but nothing amazing.

    Jacob Young
    Young delivers a good performance here but it felt lacking. With strong material like this it should been a slamdunk
    submission but it felt like he was slightly disconnected from the material. This was just good when it should have been great.

    1. Chad Duell
    2. Jacob Young
    3. Kristoff St. John
    4. Scott Clifton

    While it’s a risk to predict a young actor who’s never won an Emmy before against three Emmy winning vets, I don’t see how you can argue against a Duell win based on tapes. Duell’s is far and above the best reel here. Young has a well written reel but I felt like his performance lacked that something special. St. John’s acting was strong but the reel was poorly constructed. Clifton’s reel just isn’t enough to be a threat.

    Agreed. Jacob, again, proved why he is a fantastic actor, but the confrontation scene was nothing like Jonathan Jackson’s 2011 Emmy tour de fource.
