    Definitely agree about 1995! That was amazing work and it rankles me Leslie lost. She and Brad Maule both deserved Emmy’s that year!

    This was a great idea, Freeman, and I would have replied sooner if not for my hectic schedule. I wanted to do my own list, but that has not materialized, so I will just make a few comments.

    Nancy Addison was great on Ryan’s Hope. I think she should have won at some point. Elizabeth Hubbard on As the World Turns was one of my favorites. I continually predicted her to win from 1986 to 1991, and was surprised every time when she did not win. Similarly, Jeanne Cooper from The Young & the Restless did some of her best work in the late 80s and early 90s; although I was glad to see her win years later, she really should have won much sooner. Jessica Tuck’s death scenes on One life to Live embodied some of the best acting ever on daytime. I predicted that Ellen Dolan would win for As the World Turns the year she was nominated, and then two years later I was sure the award would go to Leslie Charleson for General Hospital. I was also pulling for Colleen Zenk (As the World Turns) and Beth Ehlers (Guiding Light) when they were nominated.

    So I guess what I am saying is that I appreciate this list in that it includes many of the nominees that I predicted for the win and/or rooted for.

    There were three actresses from Ryan’s Hope who were totally robbed of Emmy nominations: Kate Mulgrew (Mary), Ilene Kristen (Delia), and Karen Morris-Gowdy (Faith). They all deserved Emmys for their work, as well as Nancy Addison (I also loved the work done by Catherine Hicks (Faith #2), Sara Felder and Marg Helgenberger (Siobhan #1 and #2), Judith Chapman (Charlotte Greer), Yasmine Bleeth (Ryan), and Felicity LaFortune, Cali Timmins…. Helen Gallagher (Maeve) and Louise Shaffer (Rae) were the only acting winners from RH, with Ms. Addison, Randall Edwards (Delia #3), and Tichina Arnold (Zena) (Joan Fontaine was nominated for her bit part cameo appearance) all getting nomimations. RH from 1975-83 was AMAZING! (:

    My choices:
    I did my best to pick non-winners, but in some cases it was clear to me that the correct person won.

    1975: Susan Flannery (Days Of Our Lives) (the actual winner)
    1976: Denise Alexander (General Hospital)
    1977: Beverly McKinsey (Another World)— The fact she’s never won an Emmy remains a huge injustice.
    1978: Victoria Wyndham (Another World)
    1979: Helen Gallagher (Ryan’s Hope) (the actual winner)
    1980: Judith Light (One Life To Live) (the actual winner)
    1981: Judith Light (One Life To Live) (the actual winner)—I just can’t take her Emmy’s away.
    1982: Robin Strasser (One Life To Live) (the actual winner)
    1983: Leslie Charleson (General Hospital)
    1984: Erika Slezak (One Life to Live) (actual winner)

    1997: Genie Francis (General Hospital)

    I wasn’t reading Freeman’s lists as giving the Emmy to another person instead of the winner so much as in addition to the winner, or maybe just taking the winner out of the equation and working with who’s left.

    These are fun threads!

    Kate Mulgrew and Ilene Kristen ruled Ryan’s Hope in the 1970s. They were both Emmy-caliber performers. I was always puzzled that the recognition went only to Helen Gallagher. She was very good, but the most dynamic material and memorable scenes were the ones with Mulgrew, Kristen, and Addison.

    And although this thread is meant to focus on the non-winners, I agree that Hilary B. Smith earned her Emmy award. She was one of the actresses who made me laugh often but really delivered during the dramatic scenes.

    I totally understood what you intended. I guess I’m just sort of a rebel and decided to do it my own way. I instead chose who I’d give it to out of all the nominees. In some cases I just couldn’t bring myself to take it away from the real life winner. No disrespect to you!

    Yeah, that’s cool. While there have been a good number of Emmys I probably would redistribute if I had the power, I think I agree with just about all of the ones you wouldn’t change, Boidiva.

    This thread reminds me what a waste the Daytime Emmys have been for the overwhelming period of their existence.

    By the way: The 1991–92 Emmy for lead actress should have gone to Beverlee McKinsey, as Alexandra Spaulding, on Guiding Light. She was nominated four consecutive years for Another World, from 1977–1980, and too much time passed between nominations that made it easy for nominating members of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences to fail nominating her. She did a guest arc on General Hospital, in Fall 1994, and she told a publication numerous of its actors only knew of her as being director Scott McKinsey’s mother. Scott is an Emmy winner for directing and editing. McKinsey is on a long list of those the National Academy failed to prize.
