One of my (many) favorite memories of 2-time Daytime Emmy award nominee Renee Elise Goldsberry’s work on One Life To Live (as Evangeline) was a scene in which she sang “Ain’t No Way”, a beautiful song most associated with Aretha Franklin – she has an incredibly beautiful voice! She got a Tony Award nomination this morning for her work in Hamilton (Best Featured Actress in a Musical) – she is considered a shoo-in for the actual win on June 12th! Congrats to her! (:
I lover her so much..I’m still mad that she lost to Gene Francis in 2007…I want her to win that Tony! 🙂
I’m a huge REG fan and was thrilled for her Tony nomination. Congrats to her!
I am a massive fan of REG and have always considered her losses at DE to be tragic, but unavoidable. Unfortunately, as I recall she did not submit the best tapes in either season she was nominated for. In 2006, both Tognoni and Chappell had stronger tapes. And in 2007, the only person that was going to beat Francis was Lesli Kay.
Her firing from OLTL remains one of the saddest moments in my career as a daytime TV viewer. But it clearly has worked out well for her.
