    1.  Eileen Davidson – what a pleasure she has been to witness in action
    2.  Heather Tom – when given her moment, she can be amazing to watch 
    3.  Katherine Kelly Lang – always finds a way to keep it fresh, even after all these years
    4.  Arianne Zucker 
    5.  Finola Hughes – heartbreaking with the Robin stuff, otherwise unremarkable IMO
    6.  Jess Walton – what she lacked in quantity she made up for in quality 
    7.  Laura Wright
    8.  Alison Sweeney 
    9.  Maura West – always charismatic, but not much in the way of range this year
    …then the bottom three…
    10.  Sharon Case
    11.  Jessica Collins – I like her in general, but nothing resonated with me this year unfortunately 
    12.   Kelly Monaco

    1.  Finola Hughes
    2.  Maura West:  GDFL – you must not be watching GH.  West gives more range than Wright and Monaco combined.  She’s illuminating in the role of Ava Jerome which is a far cry from Carly Snyder and Diane Jenkins.  
    3.  Eileen Davidson
    4.  Jess Walton
    5.  Heather Tom
    6.  Arianne Zucker
    7.  Alison Sweeney
    8.  Sharon Case
    9.  Kelly Monaco
    10.  Laura Wright
    11.  Jessica Collins
    12.  Katherine Kelly Lang

    ^^  I do watch GH.  And I, more often than not, regret spending my time doing so. There is so much potential with that cast, but the writing and direction is so poor it’s sometimes sad to watch.  The fact that I watch GH is precisely why I have Finola Hughes ranked where she is; the woman emotes like a champ with the heavy stuff but most of the material she was given this year was not nearly enough to elicit the complexity of performances that Davidson/Zucker and the B&B women all excelled through.  So I ranked them higher because IMO they did more, and with more challenging material.

    As for Maura West, I loved her as Carly and I love her as Ava.  I would have loved her as Diane too if the character she was playing on Y&R was more Diane Jenkins than just in name-only.  But specifically as Ava, West is charismatic in every scene, but she didn’t have a scene last year where she showed the full depth of the character, or at least not in a way that connected with me.  Do I think West is a better actress thatn Wright overall?  Yeah.  And I adore Laura Wright’s work.  But I ranked Wright ahead of West here because I thought she made more of an emotional connection in her scenes this year, even if the quanitity of those scenes was few.  But in my predictions for the ballot in the other thread, I have West ahead of Wright because that’s what I think will likely happen, with neither of them really being competitive for the win.

    My problem with this category is that I will be unhappy if the Days actresses aren’t on the final ballot – still dont’ know if there are 4 or 5 finalists. I will be extremely upset if Heather Tom is on the final ballot. I get that others like her work; I just want others to get recognized, particularly Alison Sweeney, because it’s just insane she’s hever been nominated. During times when I wasn’t loving Days, I still watched specifically for Sami Brady.

    As for Maura West, I simply adore her! Her work as Ava Jerome is extremely complex: she plays a villainess who I am openly rooting for! She is SO incredibly sultry! She is always interesting and complex. I would have voted for her all 7 times she was nominated for her Carly Tenney, so I must admit she’s a personal favorite!

    I truly want a tie in the category, Eileen, Ali & Ari (: If they submit correctly, it is possible they could all make it to the final ballot. But historically, Y&R does better than Days ):

    This is Eileen’s Emmy people….no other actress deserves it more than her for 2013 work.  Davidson absolutely rocked it at DAYS and put the entire soap on her back.

    Anyone other than Davidson winning this Emmy would be a massive mistake IMO and will be debated as so for years to come.

    I will be HIGHLY upset if Y&R dominates nominations, yet again. I was shocked when they led the pack

    last year. But, then again, I wasn’t surprised. Y&R/B&B are most definitely gonna vote for each other. I’m more than convinced

    that they did last year. DAYS was great last year and should be honored. But, they’ve got to overcome that damn

    dragon lady known as JFP. She loves getting those Emmys and she knows how to get them. She is my biggest concern.
