    It would be interesting to see if The Bold and the Beautiful‘s Heather Tom can crack the lead-actress list. The official one on Emmy nominations day. Because she would become the seventh individual and fourth actress to have received nominations at all three categorical levels. And I imagine she can successfully pull it off. (Tom has been great in the part!)

    To date, here are the players who generated nominations from all three (year indicated is when the rounds were completed).

    2004: Roger Howarth
    2005: Michael E. Knight
    2005: Steve Burton
    2006: Beth Ehlers
    2009: Debbi Morgan
    2009: Vincent Irizarry
    2010: Sarah Brown

    I wonder if GH didn’t comment because of Katie Couric coming soon to GH time slots

    Didn’t Cady McClain get this honor too? Competing at all three levels?

    considering the amount of airtime she had when she was Rosanna the first time, I am surprised they never pushed for her as lead. Heather Tom will get nominated as has a strong chance to win to.

    I finally got to read the article, and it’s interesting.  I felt like the implication was less that the four remaining soaps survived because they were the best and more like they survived because they were the best at adapting to be times and being profitable, although even that isn’t true.  It would have been an interesting perspective to look at what the more recently cancelled soaps did or did not do to try to remain profitable, but that might have muddled the picture they were painting a little too much, contrasting Guiding Light’s poorly received attempts at cost savings vs. One Life to Live, which was touted as always coming in on time and under budget, much as the article depicts Days of our Lives.  Maybe that’s why there was no ABC/General Hospital comment.  Why would they want to answer questions about having kept General Hospital while cancelling a show that was more successful both in terms of ratings and budget? 

    It was odd how the article mentions eight soaps cancelled in the last 15 years.  That doesn’t really capture the dire nature of things that came from the rapid-fire cancellations of GL, As The World Turns, All My Children and OLTL, and if you want to throw it in, Passions shortly before then.  But then again, the article seemed to be saying that things aren’t as bad as people have made them out to be.
