    I’ve decided to place actors in the categories I think they belong, not necessarily the ones they will be placed in. I also pick consistency over “Emmy reel” scenes. There were so many amazing performers for 2014!

    My first five names are my dream ballot choices; the next five would be on my pre-nominees list. (Supporting Actress I decided I needed a longer list).

    Best Drama Series:
    *Days Of Our Lives
    General Hospital
    The Young and the Restless

    I choose Days for its consistency. GH had some great individual “Emmy reel” type epis and Y&R improved greatly in the last quarter, but Days shone – not as brightly as 2013, but close. Ejami and Sonny/Will were my favorites.

    Best Actress: Alison Sweeney is my MUST win for this year. Thanks for the memories, Sami! (: 

    Sharon Case, Y&R
    Nancy Lee Grahn, GH
    Kirsten Storms, GH
    *Alison Sweeney, Days
    Maura West, GH

    Amelia Heinle, Y&R
    Michelle Stafford, GH
    Melody Thomas Scott, Y&R
    Laura Wright, GH
    Arianne Zucker, Days

    Best Actor: (I could be happy with James Scott winning, but JT’s work early in the year with the Robin leaving and Gabriel’s death and I will be rooting for JT to finally win)

    Darin Brooks, B&B
    Roger Howarth, GH
    Joshua Morrow, Y&R
    James Scott, Days
    *Jason Thompson, GH

    Doug Davidson, Y&R
    Don Diamont, B&B
    Anthony Geary, GH
    Christian LeBlanc, Y&R
    Eric Martsolf, Days

    Best Supporting Actress: (I’m choosing Days actresses over GH actresses this year, but it’s SO close, so many great performances! ED’s 12 week stint, esp. her two days playing Susan and Kristen, is my choice)

    Kristian Alfonso, Days
    Teresa Castillo, GH
    *Eileen Davidson, Days
    Deidre Hall, Days
    Lauren Koslow, Days

    Leslie Charleson, GH
    Jane Elliot, GH
    Finola Hughes, GH
    Robin Mattson, GH
    Rena Sofer, B&B

    Vinessa Antoine, GH
    Meredith Baxter, Y&R
    Kathleen Gati, GH
    Cady McClain, Y&R
    Kelly Thiebaud, GH

    Best Supporting Actor: (I hope Blake submits, but I also loved Chad’s work in 2014)

    *Blake Berris, Days
    Chad Duell, GH
    Sean Kanan, GH
    Ryan Paevey, GH
    Greg Vaughan, Days

    Billy Miller, Y&R
    Michael Muhney, Y&R
    Parry Shen, GH
    Guy Wilson, Days
    Ray Wise, Y&R

    Best Younger Actress: (How has Haley never been nominated? The Ric storyline was her finest work yet)

    Kristin Alderson, GH
    Camila Banus, Days
    Camryn Grimes, Y&R
    *Haley Pullos, GH
    Brooklyn Rae Sigler, GH

    Best Younger Actor: (Freddie might submit in Supporting, but even though he can only submit from early in the year, he has the material imo)

    Nicolas Bechtel, GH
    Bryan Craig, GH
    Casey Moss, Days
    Tequan Richmond, GH
    *Freddie Smith, Days

    Best Directing Team: (I pick Days conistency over GH’s flashy, but this is razor thin close)

    *Days Of Our Lives
    General Hospital
    The Young and the Restless

    Best Writing Team: (Days all the way!)

    *Days Of Our Lives
    General Hospital
    The Young and the Restless

    Freeman!  I posted my Best and Worst almost at the same time as you, and we have a lot of similarities.  🙂  I love your ballot.  Except I put Arianne Zucker in Supporting and Finola Hughes as Lead, but could go either way.

    Love that you recognized Kristian Alfonso, Lauren Koslow, Darin Brooks and Teresa Castillo…  all underrated but excellent, and worthy of nominations indeed.

    I didn’t put Younger Actors categories but I ADORE Haley Pulos.

    One thing I don’t get is the nearly universal love for Blake Berris…  I never found him that great.

    Here are a few categories from me.  I specifically skipped Best Actor and Supporting Actor because the choices are so underwhelming this year that I’m not sure what to make of them yet.

    Best Drama Series
    Winner: DOOL.  So consistently great.
    Runner up: Y&R.  Definitely the most improved of the year.
    B&B and GH had their moments too, and I’m learnig to not hate the latter.

    Best Actress
    Michelle Stafford, GH
    Maura West, GH
    Amelia Heinle, Y&R
    Melody Thomas Scott, Y&R
    Next up: Arianne Zucker, Laura Wright, or Finola Hughes
    Amelia Heinle both belongs in this category, and has been good enough to be on the ballot.  I think Stafford should be, but West will be the frontrunner.  I have a feeling Sweeney won’t be recognized, and she’s proven herself so many times at this point that I don’t think it matters anyway.  But then again, Days won big last year so maybe voters will finally be more open minded to Sweeney.

    Supporting Actress:
    Rena Sofer, B&B
    Eileen Davidson, DOOL
    Kassie Depaiva, DOOL
    Jen Lilley, DOOL
    Cady McClain, Y&R
    This is by far the most exciting race of the year.  Eileen submitting the Susan scenes would be gutsy because they’re comedy and potentially hard to follow if the viewers don’t know the history, but she has nothing to lose and could easily win because she is so good.  Sofer and McClain have been great this year and I’d love to see them both nominated.  If McClain is nominated, would that be some sort of record being nominated for three different characters?  I guess Heather Tom (and anyone else?) has done that.  What if McClain won for Kelly, after having won as both Dixie and Rosanna?

    ^^  I can’t believe I forgot about KKL as drunk Brooke!  She and MTS may cancel each other out if they both submit drunk scenes, and head to head I personally would likely pick KKL.
