I am rooting so hard for Garen Stitt but I wouldn’t mind at all if Lucas Adams or William Lipton would win. Reading the descriptions I could most clearly remember Oscar’s scenes the best. I would be furious if Zack Tinker were to win for his nothing performances as Fenmore on Y&R.April 25, 2019 at 5:24 am #1202865976
One big issue I see is Garren Stitt’s scenes are way out of order. Like why is him finding out about the diagnosis the THIRD scene?April 25, 2019 at 7:30 am #1202866145
I’m still trying to figure out how Zach Tinker got nominated in the first place???!!!!
Garren Stitt could easily win Younger Actor but we might see an upset in Lucas Adams.
Why is there no post about Writing and Directing??? I think Y&R or DAYS will win Writing (leaning towards Y&R if they submitted Hillary’s death) and GH for Directing, Y&R could win this too.April 25, 2019 at 12:18 pm #1202866522
I really want this win to go to Lucas Adams. He’s such a good actor.
Garren could win but usually they don’t give Emmy’s to cancer storylines. We’ll see.
Kyler’s reel was good. I miss Theo.
William’s is good as well.
Who knows Zach could win with something simple.April 25, 2019 at 12:27 pm #1202866543
I’m inclined to believe Adams will win this too. I don’t know who decided how to do Stitt’s reel but that was a major f up.April 25, 2019 at 1:01 pm #1202866616
I really like Lipton’s reel. I think he has great instincts as a young actor. I’m really NOT a fan of Stitt’s; Oscar really doesn’t feel like a real teenager to me. I think Lucas Adams will win (deservedly so) though part of me wants Lipton to take it!April 25, 2019 at 3:23 pm #1202866788
If the horribly wrong order of Lucas Adams and Olivia Rose Keegan’s reels from last year are any indication of why neither of them won last year, the same might be for Garren Stitt this year as well.April 25, 2019 at 3:27 pm #1202866795
I’ll be honest, I hated all of these reels. The acting is actively bad, in my opinion. So it’s kind of like picking from a whole lot of yuck.
Stitt’s has the best chance. He has the most sympathy in his storyline. Tinker (WTF). Adams (Snooze). Lipton (Meh). Pettis (does nothing but cry and the last half of the reel has no dialogue, just tears). I’d hate to see the reels that DIDN’T make the cut here.May 1, 2019 at 5:54 am #1202875483This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.May 1, 2019 at 6:25 am #1202875512
Michael Mealor turned 26 on Feb. 28, 2018, (He’s a leap year baby.) so he could have been nominated.May 1, 2019 at 1:54 pm #1202876100
As has been mentioned above, this is not an especially good category. I think it comes down to two: Lucas Adams vs. Garren Stitt.
Adams is the most natural actor in the bunch, and he plays some real emotions, but there’s not a whole lot of emotional impact, and not much of any emotional range.
Stitt has the best reel in terms of the material he submitted: the scenes have strong impact, the stakes are high for his storyline. Here it’s his acting that’s the problem. He has moments that are decent, but he’s not quite up to the task of these scenes overall. Occasionally feels like a high school production. So it depends on what voters think of his acting.
Zach Tinker is watchable, but his reel is a snooze. Kyler Pettis doesn’t really do much but lie there. And William Lipton was actively bad in his scenes.May 1, 2019 at 7:18 pm #1202876350
Younger Actor was a good category once upon a time. Tom Pelphrey, Kevin Mambo, Jonathan Jackson, Monti Sharp, David Lago, Michael E. Knight, Billy Warlock, Justin Gocke, Andrew Kavovit, Rick Hearst, Kristoff St.John, Roger Howarth, David Tom, Justin Torkildsen, Jacob Young, Chad Brannon, Jordi Vilasuso, Bryton James, Darrin Brooks, Drew Tyler Bell, Scott Clifton, Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith, Bryan Craig, and Rome Flynn have all won this award. This year it’s a lil unpredictable. My votes for Lucas Adams.
