    1. KASSIE DePAIVA, Days Of Our Lives

    Eve’s grief over the death of her daughter Paige was the very best acting on daytime in 2015. Superb performances.

    2. FINOLA HUGHES, General Hospital

    Anna’s grief scenes over the death of Luke were stunning!

    3. MAURA WEST, General Hospital

    When Ava thought she was dying she did superb work; I enjoyed the beginning of the twin story but it got monotonous. She is best when Ava is manipulative.

    4. KATE MANSI, Days Of Our Lives

    Abigail had great stories with Ben and Chad in 2015. She really stepped up her acting game!

    5. TRACEY E. BREGMAN, The Young and the Restless

    Really a supporting actress, she nevertheless did great work early in the year with Michael’s cancer story and their almost breakup.

    6. EILEEN DAVIDSON, The Young and the Restless

    Ashley felt supporting to me as well, but she is always great, and she did some really good work mid-year.

    7. MELISSA CLARE EGAN, The Young and the Restless

    Her work with Justin Hartley is always a pleasure to watch!

    8. MARY BETH EVANS, Days Of Our Lives

    Why is she in lead? She’s always wonderful, esp. in scenes with Peggy McCay, but I haven’t enjoyed her with acting partner Stephen Nichols at all.

    9. LAURA WRIGHT, General Hospital

    Others love her, I know, I find her shrill and irritating, oh well!

    10. GINA TOGNONI, The Young and the Restless

    The biggest disappointment is her inclusion here. I hope she isn’t nominated. She simply isn’t Phyllis for me at all.

    KDP for the win…she was simply put…OUTSTANDING.

    She has a number of episodes she can choose from….IMO no other actress in daytime was able to touch her performances.

    The episode where Eve realizes she is going to have to call Stanford and tell them Paige is never going to arrive for the fall semester….OMG heartbreaking…it was acting at its finest.

    Paige’s funeral would be another strong episode, she showed a ton of range in that episode.

    1.  Kassie DePaiva, DOOL
    There is basically consensus here that she is the front runner so I won’t say too much.

    2.  Laura Wright, GH
    I think she benefits the most from the two-reel system this year.  If she can pair something strong opposite the anniversary reel she has this in the bag.

    3.  Eileen Davidson, Y&R
    I don’t mind her in Lead.  She really was borderline Lead/Supporting so it’s fine with me.  I think she has some competitive options from mid year plus I”m biased because I adore her in this role almost as much as I love her as Kristen.

    4.  Finola Hughes, GH
    I am a long time FH fan, but she’s been snubbed for better work.  If she makes the ballot, it’ll be by a hair.

    5.  Kate Mansi, DOOL
    From what I remember, I can’t think of what combination of reels she can submit to compete against such big names in this category.  However, I hope she finds the right combo because it would be great to see her recognized for a great year.

    6.  Maura West, GH
    Denise was a bust and she played Ava’s medical issues exactly the same way that she played Carly’s same issues a few years ago.  She was nominated then and I don’t see why should be nominated again now.

    7.  Mary Beth Evans, DOOL
    In 2010, Bobbi Eakes was nominated for a few minutes of brilliance in what was already a pretty short reel.  I feel like if MBE is nominated it’ll be this year’s equivalent.  She’s a pleasure to watch, but there wasn’t enough in the way of stand out moments to justify a nomination.

    8.  Tracey Bregman, Y&R
    See MBE 

    9.  Melissa Claire Egan, Y&R
    I would have given this slot to Amelia Heinle.  AH is getting better and better as an actress whereas MCE is losing her nuance.  She was a favourite of mine on AMC, but she is now stagnating.

    10.  Gina Tognoni, Y&R
    I have complained a lot about her work in the past, so I won’t repeat it in the interest of limiting the spread of hate.

    No Karla Mosely!

    How screwed.

    I suggest no more than two.

     

    • Finola Hughes, for the 25th anniversary of her 1991 win, General Hospital (ABC)
    • Kate Mansi, for proving that you don’t have to be past age 30 to crack this category, Days of Our Lives (NBC)

    Gina Tognoni is not a good fit for the role of Phyllis. I wish TPTB had had the foresight to bring her on as a new character. Maura West was stellar in her cancer scenes, but her stories for the rest of the year were such a disaster that I think she might sit this one out. Tracey Bregman and Mary Beth Evans both did fine work, but were really not prominent enough this year to make the final cut. Melissa Claire Egan has become a stalwart, but her storylines resulted in little that is new or different for her.

    Finola Hughes gave strong performances to the backdrop of poor storytelling and characterization, while Eileen Davidson was compelling but lacked a major storyline for much of the year. Kate Mansi really brought in the final months of 2015; those weeks during the kidnapping were challenging and she sold it. Laura Wright brings her A-game everyday, even when the story is frustrating and/or implausible. Kassie DePaiva had great material and gave consistently amazing performances throughout the entire year. In this race, she is clearly unmatched.

    1. Kassie DePaiva, Days

    2. Laura Wright, GH

    3. Finola Hughes, GH

    4. Eileen Davidson, Y&R

    5. Kate Mansi, Days

    6. Mary Beth Evans, Days

    7.  Tracey Bregman, Y&R

    8. Melissa Claire Egan, Y&R

    9. Maura West, GH

    Kassie DePaiva for the win, and Maura West sucks and shouldn’t have won last year.

    Goodnight.

    These rankings are a little tricky for me, having seen so much more DAYS and GH than Y&R and B&B over 2015, but I’ve got opinions nonetheless, so here we go. The Daytime Emmy rulebook implied that they would try for five nominees in a category as long as there were enough entrants (something like seven or more), unless there’s a tie, so I went with that in mind.

    I’d Rather Not:

    Gina Tognoni
    Melissa Claire Egan
    Mary Beth Evans
    Tracey E. Bregman

    Most of this as already been said. I haven’t seen anything in Gina Tognoni’s portrayal of Phyllis that’s really impressed me, and that includes her Emmy reel from last year. I was never fond of the Chelsea character, and for me Melissa Claire Egan’s portrayals are becoming kind of tiresome. I adore both Mary Beth Evans and Tracey E. Bregman, but neither had a year that warrants a nomination in this category.

    Borderline:
    Laura Wright

    Laura Wright is great, but she wouldn’t make the cut for me this year. Carly spent most of the year as a supporting character with a lot of screen time, and even though Wright played her as if she were a lead all along (in some circumstances admirable and in others more annoying), I feel the others edged her out. But I wouldn’t cry too hard if she were to slip into the lineup in place of West or maybe Davidson.

    My Nominees:
    Eileen Davidson
    Kate Mansi
    Maura West
    Finola Hughes
    Kassie DePaiva

    Despite there being a question about category placement, I thought Eileen Davidson’s work was significant enough to warrant a nomination, and I always enjoy what I see of her. Kate Mansi has been doing solid work for a couple of years now and really kicked into high gear in the last quarter of the year as things in the Abigail/Chad/Ben story became increasingly complicated and her character went from hormonal ingénue to protective mother. I wasn’t totally convinced Maura West would really make waves in this category for her work in Ava’s cancer story, between the writing being somewhat flat and the similarity to when she played a similar story on ATWT. But the added bonus that came with the reveal of Ava having faked her death and attempting to resume life as her own long lost twin sister put her in the running for me. The Denise story was awful and insulting (nothing West could have done to save it), but there were some delicious performances in the denouement and ensuing custody battle. Finola Hughes is just consistently excellent, and did a wonderful job of layering complexity into Anna’s grief and her unsettled mental state in the wake of Duke’s death. But I’m with the consensus that Kassie DePaiva is the strong frontrunner here. I was already ready to give her this award after her brilliant work when Eve was busted, first by Jennifer and then by Paige herself, for sleeping with JJ. And that only added to what DePaiva had to work with in the fall when Eve had to deal with her daughter’s murder. A stellar range of tremendous performances across the year.

    Overall, I am amazed by the level of consensus in this category. Aside from Laura Wright and Maura West, our rankings and commentary are quite similar. Of course, only a handful of us have weighed in. It will be interesting to see how the final nominations stack up.
