    I have had an unbelievably difficult time posting this.

    I did not have time to write a reaction to the nominations last week, so this post serves as a combination reaction/order of preference. This has nothing to do with predictions or reels, which I imagine we will discuss in future threads.

    Lead Actress
    While I admire all five nominated actresses, many of the movers and shakers were omitted in favor of actresses who in some cases drove significantly less story. Looking back on 2016, I think first of Sharon Case, Melissa Claire Egan, Rena Sofer, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, and Arianne Zucker, none of whom are nominated, either because they were overlooked or did not submit a reel for consideration. Heather Tom did amazing work last year, but was essentially supporting in terms of air time. Jess Walton did some strong work, but had very little screen time overall. Gina Tognoni had a big story, but I still cannot accept her as Phyllis. That leaves Nancy Lee Grahn and Laura Wright, both of whom were truly lead actresses in 2016. Wright deserves credit for turning in strong performances in mostly weak stories, but Grahn seems like a sure bet as she turned in countless performances of extreme intensity (although I actually did not like her story either).
    My Personal Ranking
    1. Nancy Lee Grahn
    2. Laura Wright
    3. Heather Tom
    4. Jess Walton
    5. Gina Tognoni

    Lead Actor
    My 2016 favorite, Darin Brooks is not on the list. But a nod for Billy Flynn is some compensation. He carried major story all year and did a great job, even though the writing was wildly inconsistent. For Vincent Irizarry, I think the nomination is his reward, although I may be blinded by the fact that I do not enjoy his character. Scott Clifton did some great work and deserves the recognition. Peter Bergman was good, but he has been nominated so many times. Kristoff St. John did some strong work and is worthy of consideration.
    My Personal Ranking
    1. Billy Flynn
    2. Scott Clifton
    3. Kristoff St. John
    4. Peter Bergman
    5. Vincent Irizarry

    Supporting Actress
    I rarely root for departed actors (especially if they left voluntarily). So I am not excited about nominations for Mansi, Haiduk, and Sullivan. That leaves Horsford and Hughes, both of whom turned in great but very different types of performances. I would be fine with either one, but the intensity of Hughes is almost unbeatable.
    My Personal Ranking
    1. Finola Hughes
    2. Anna Maria Horsford
    3. Kate Mansi
    4. Kelly Sullivan
    5. Stacey Haiduk

    Supporting Actor
    Keeping with the theme of not supporting exited actors, I am not excited about Steve Burton or Jeffrey Vincent Parise. James Reynolds is fine, but gets very little screen time. Chad Duell turned in some strong performances in horrible stories. John Aniston is the stalwart here, and had plenty of good material in 2016.
    My Personal Ranking
    1. John Aniston
    2. Chad Duell
    3. James Reynolds
    4. Steve Burton
    5. Jeffrey Vincent Parise

    Young Actor
    Bryan Craig is no longer on GH and Tequan Richmond rarely appears. Anthony Turpel is very promising, but did not appear until the end of the year. James Lastovic has suffered through the poor writing for the teen actors. That leaves Pierson Fode who, for me, wins by default.
    1. Pierson Fode
    2. Anthony Turpel
    3. James Lastovic
    4. Bryan Craig
    5. Tequan Richmond

    Young Actress
    Alyvia Alyn Lind is very good, but does not have the material to compete. Hunter King did pretty much the same routine as in years past. Reign Edwards turned in some strong performances. Lexi Ainsworth was outstanding in her story. Chloe Lanier is a revelation, although her story is awful.
    My Personal Ranking
    1. Lexi Ainsworth
    2. Chloe Lanier
    3. Reign Edwards
    4. Alyvia Alyn Lind
    5. Hunter King

    We agree on all but two categories; I do think that Bryan Craig’s hospitalization scenes were more than Emmy worthy: they were among the finest acting scenes I have ever seen in my life (specifically: when he was begging his parents not to commit him in the psychiatric ward). I will be shocked if BC does not repeat with a 2nd Emmy win for his work. And I choose Kate Mansi over Finola Hughes, but both were exceptionally good. I have never understood the logic behind not giving awards to departed performers, but to each their own!

    Very interesting thoughts robbalto! (:

    I agree that Bryan Craig did a great job and I would have no issue if he won. I just find it anti-climactic when a departed actor wins. Awards are coups for the shows, but it is not much of a coup if the winning performer no longer appears on the show.
