I have asked Daniel if I could be “deputized” to get the Goldies started for this year. This is the phase for the nominations for work we loved between January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015 on daytime soaps. Daniel sent me an e-mail detailing the rules and they are as follows:
– voting will end in the nominations phase on February 14, 2016
– in each category, select your top THREE candidates, ranked from 1st to 3rd. Your top choice will receive 5 points, your next choice will receive 3 points, and your last choice will receive 2 points.
– if you feel an actor is borderline between categories, you may vote for them in BOTH categories if you wish. If an actor receives enough points to be nominated in both categories, they will be nominated in the category they received more points.
– you may vote in as many categories as you like. If you vote in a category you MUST vote for 3 candidates or that category will not be counted.
– your ballot will be consdiered if it includes at least TWO soaps on it. This is to discourage voters from stacking the deck in favor of one particular soap. If you believe, for instance, that Days had the 3 best lead actreses, that’s fine, but don’t submit a ballot with 21 Days actors on it.
– Drama Series, Writing, Directing, Casting & Ensemble are NOT included among the categories for voting in the first phase of voting – this is the nominating phase – they are default nominees for the final round of voting.
– Send your ballot to me (FreemanGriffin) via private message. To do so, hover your cursor over my name and select “send message’ from the drop down message.
– FYC’s are o.k. but DO NOT post your entire ballot in the thread.
– You will receive a private message acknowledging receipt of your ballot ASAP.
Lifetime Achievement (for a living individual – previous winners are ineligible: David Canary, Agnes Nixon, Helen Wagner, Eileen Fulton, Susan Lucci, Erika Slezak, and Robin Strasser)
Legacy Award (for a deceased individual – previous winners are ineligible: William J Bell, Beverlee McKinsey, Douglas Marland, Frances Reid, Helen Wagner, irna Phillips, Jeanne Cooper, John Ingle and Darlene Conley)
The 2nd round of voting will commence in mid-February after the annoucement is made of our nominees (:January 27, 2016 at 12:45 pm #430207
Was Douglas Marland a previous winner for Legacy Award? Anyone else missing from Lifetime Achievemnt or Legacy Award? I will edit them in…January 27, 2016 at 1:44 pm #430208
Cool, thanks Freeman!
Doug Marland was a winner for the Legacy Award. Not sure which year.January 27, 2016 at 2:12 pm #430209
Haven’t Jeanne Cooper and John Ingle won the Legacy Award?January 27, 2016 at 4:53 pm #430210
Jeanne Cooper definitely did. I believe she was actually nominated for the Lifetime Achievement Award, but passed away during the voting period, and so her win was converted to a Legacy Award at the time it was announced.
Thanks so much for getting us started on this, Freeman! I love these awards.January 27, 2016 at 6:30 pm #430211
What’s the max number of nominations per category?January 27, 2016 at 7:13 pm #430212
My memory was that we had four nominees per category last year, except if there was a tie for 4th place and then there was a fifth nominee…
You get to nominate your top three, with 1st place getting 5 points, 2nd place getting 3 points, and 3rd place getting 2 points.January 27, 2016 at 7:31 pm #430213
A couple questions…
Can we post FYC’s in this thread?
David Canary previously won the Lifetime Achievement Award, is he also eligible now for the Legacy Award now that he has passed?January 27, 2016 at 8:16 pm #430214
Yes, FYC’s can be posted in this thread, but sparingly.
Helen Wagner has won both the Lifetime Achievement and Legacy Awards, so YES, David Canary is eligible for the Legacy Award now that he has passed away.January 27, 2016 at 9:07 pm #430215
Thank you for getting this started, Freeman!January 28, 2016 at 12:44 pm #430216
FYC: Elizabeth Hubbard for Lifetime Achievement Award
Elizabeth Hubbard was on five soaps between 1962 and 2010. She started on The Guiding Light and The Edge Of Night and then found one of her two signature roles, Dr. Althea Davis, on The Doctors. She was on the show for 14 of it’s 19 years and won the first ever Best Actress in a Daytime Drama Series Emmy award in 1974. Her character was a female Doctor, strong, intelligent, a working mother, and had volatile relationships due to her being so headstrong and independent. She then had a short-term role on One Life To Live before finding her other signature role, the fiery and indomitable Lucinda Walsh! A business tycoon, a mother, a lover, she had complex relationships and was so memorable; she received 8 Emmy nominations for her role on As The World Turns. She played the role between 1985 through 2010. She deserves the Lifetime Achievement award for her service to daytime television as a fierce independent strong woman.January 28, 2016 at 4:54 pm #430217
Debbie Morgan for Lifetime Achievement. She is the first African-American actress to win a daytime emmy and broke ground for her popular work as Angie on “AMC”. She is credited with being one-half of daytimes first black supercouple and has delivered excellent performances for over three decades.
