I can only come up with Debbi Morgan and Christel Khalil. Anyone else?
I believe Anna Maria Horsford should win for her stellar work on Bold and her fabulous charatcer actress career.
Time for another sister to win in Daytime!
I think Reign Edwards will win Younger Actress and Anna Maria Horsford will win Supporting Actress if they submitted their scenes during the Julius/Sasha drama.
No others are coming to mind besides Debbi Morgan and Christel Khalil. I am rooting for Reign Edwards to win younger actress, and she’s got some great material to choose from — not only the Julius/Sasha stuff but great scenes of heartbreak dealing with Zende’s betrayals.
As far as I know, only Christel Kahill and Debbie Morgan fit this bill.
And this is really a sad statistic when you think about all the talented actresses who deserved to win, such as Victoria Rowell, Tonya Lee Williams, Renee Jones and many others.
Debbi Morgan—who has been nominated at all three categorical levels (lead, supporting, younger)—is the only one who has been nominated specifically in lead actress. (That was in 2009 followed by 2011 and 2012.) She won the supporting-actress Emmy in 1989. (That was a tie with Nancy Lee Grahn. Morgan won for All My Children; Grahn, currently up for lead actress on General Hospital, won the first of her two Emmys for her work on Santa Barbara.) No other black actress has won the Daytime Emmy in supporting actress. And, right now, Christel Khalil is the only black actress to have won specifically in younger actress. (She won for her work on The Young and the Restless in 2012.)
Having mentioned Morgan in lead actress, other black actresses with Daytime Emmy nominations starting in supporting actress were: General Hospital‘s Rosalind Cash (posthumously in 1996; she died in October 1995); One Life to Live‘s Renee Elise Goldsberry (in 2006 and 2007; she won the 2015–16 Tony for supporting actress in a musical for Hamilton); and The Young and the the Restless‘s Victoria Rowell (1996, 1997, and 1998) and Tonya Lee Williams (1996, 2000). Those with younger-actress nominations (in addition to a 1986 nominee Debbi Morgan and 2012 winner Christel Khalil): Another World‘s Rhonda Ross Kendrick (Diana’s daughter, 1998); The Bold and the Beautiful‘s Reign Edwards (first nominated in 2016); and Ryan’s Hope‘s Tichina Arnold (1988).
This year, 2017, we do have the supporting-actress nomination for The Bold and the Beautiful‘s Anna Maria Horsford. She was nominated for guest performance in 2016. And cast mate Reign Edwards is in the running again.
I do not necessarily think this is complete. It is my effort to recall who is/was applicable to this topic.
