1. Chandler Massey, Days – Freddie Smith should have won this Emmy, but… CM has to carry the Wilson banner alone. Just love his acting chocies – he had better material from early 2013. He has 4 nominations and has won the last 2 years in this category.
2. Bryan Craig, GH – loved the Metrocourt scenes, when he confronted Sonny – powerful! (: He also holds his own with Maura West! This is his first nomination.
3. Chad Duell, GH – Michael got saddled with Kiki for a love interest, but he did great work with both BC and with Sean Kanan’s A.J. throughout 2013. Glad he’s back in the race! This is his second nomination.
4. Daniel Polo, Y&R – Jamie was only on the show for two months in 2013, but he had terrific scenes when Jamie was suicidal. They were very emotional “emmy bait” scenes – I do wish they would bring him back on to the show, don’t know why they let him go… His first nomination.
5. Max Ehrich, Y&R – don’t like Fenmore, find him boring. He’s solid as an actor, though. This his second nomination.
1. Kelli Missal, OLTL – the only acting nominee from the online soaps – KM delivered, particularly with Dani’s drug overdose scenes, harrowing. She has grown so much as an actress. Hoping she will find another soap soon. First nomination.
2. Kim Matula, B&B – I never liked Hope at all until…Wyatt!!! Love the chemistry between Darin & Kim! Is this her first nomination?
3. Kristin Alderson, GH (Starr Manning) – KA has submitted scenes from the first two months of 2013, so I am moving her up to #3! I loved Starr, don’t love Kiki, who I find incredibly annoying! It’s the writing more than the actress, I suppose…
4. Hunter King, Y&R – not a big fan of hers. She had good material to act with the paternity reveal. She was nominated last year as well.
5. Linsey Godfrey, B&B – imo nothing special… Caroline is O.K., but she doesn’t register for me. I think this is her first nomination.
My original #5:
(5). Kristin Alderson, GH – she won last year for playing Starr. I loved Starr. I don’t love Kiki. What can I say? I find Kiki extremely annoying! This is her second nomination.

Tho, apparently Alderson submitted material as Starr, so wonder if that changes Freeman’s opinion of ranking preference?
