    Since there’s no prenominations this year, who would you like to see get a Daytime Emmy nomination and win?

    We all know all 4 drama series will be nominated for Writing, Drama Series, and Directing so no need to name those three categories.

    For Lead Actress I’d like to see Sharon Case, Jacqueline MacIness Wood, Katherine Kelly Lang, Maura West, and Arianne Zucker on the list with Wood winning for Steffy’s pill addiction storyline.

    Lead Actor…Jason Thompson, Maurice Benard, Billy Flynn, Scott Clifton, and Peter Bergman with Thompson winning for his performance in Billy’s stand alone episode in December.

    Supporting Actor…Matthew Atkinson, Robert Scott Wilson, Max Gail, Bryton James, Paul Telfer, and Chandler Massey…this could go 3 ways in my opinion. Gail could win for his exit story, but on the other hand it could be Atkinson for Thomas’s breakdown or James for Devon confronting Elena for her tryst with Nate.

    Supporting Actress…Annika Noelle, Lindsey Godfrey, Stacy Haiduk… someone help me with this category it’s always been a trick one.

    Younger Performer…William Lipton, Victoria Konefal, Eden McCoy, Lindsay Arnold, and Olivia Rose Keegan. I’d like for Konefal to take it if she’s nominated (which she definitely will be).

    What are your thoughts and before we start no one show is going to win every award.

    I’d love to see JMW score a Lead Actress victory for her extraordinary set of heart-rending performances in what was imo the single-most compelling storyline of the year.

    It would be interesting to see one of the four shows not be nominated in one of the major categories (series, writing or directing). It’s my understanding that this is possible, though very unlikely. I don’t want to see a show be punished per se, but it would be a good reminder that the shows are earning these nominations, even if it is easier than it used to be because there are potentially enough slots for everyone.

    I’ll also say, before I mention performers, that the Daytime Emmys for me are about the year of eligibility but certainly also about overall balance. So, someone like Heather Tom would have to basically perform literal magic for me to put her on a wishlist to get another Emmy at this point.

    It would be nice to see JMW get a nomination, and I hope her work in 2020 quiets the naysayers from her win for 2018. I could get behind a win for Nancy Lee Grahn or Genie Francis if they showed up here, but I’m also pulling hard to see Camila Banus show up here and challenge for a win. (Camila is one of the three people I consider to be owed an Emmy based on losing one despite having a far superior reel. She was incredible in the episode where Gabi confessed to killing Nick, but lost to Hunter King. The other two are Casey Moss losing to Rome Flynn despite turning in probably the best performance of any male actor that year when JJ nearly committed suicide and Arianne Zucker as Nicole faced the consequences of the baby switch story with Sami losing out to Julie Pinson.) Anyway, it was a second consecutive year of Camila breathing life into her corner of the show on DAYS and a win would be well earned.

    In lead actor, I’d love to see Stephen Nichols get recognized for doing really difficult work that I’m sure won’t be appreciated during the awful Stevano storyline. Not sure where he’ll submit, but Matthew Atkinson also did some really strong work this year and would be a good nominee. Call me a grinch, but since Maurice Benard and Max Gail both already have Emmys for Mike’s Alzheimer’s story, I’m not really in favor of giving either of them another for it, and Maurice didn’t really do anything compelling outside of that storyline in 2020.

    Supporting actress is an impossible category because there are so many doing such good work. Lisa LoCicero and Courtney Hope really stood out to me this year for different reasons: Courtney because she was unceremoniously fired and Lisa because she was really giving me all the feels when so much of the buzz was about performers in other storylines.

    In supporting actor, I’d love to see the DAYS guys make a strong showing here, based on some of the performances during the time jump flashback week (over a year ago now) especially, but also who knows where some of the actors will submit. Robert Scott Wilson and Paul Telfer both had the presence to run as leads but seem more likely to submit in supporting.

    Younger performer is very tough. It feels almost criminal that Eden McCoy doesn’t have an Emmy yet, but Victoria Konefal and William Lipton were both absolutely dynamite this year, so one of those three would make a great winner.

    Oh, also I think Alison Sweeney should win whichever category she submits in. I’d call her supporting, but she’s probably eligible in guest (though her Christmas appearance may complicate that). Now that the guest submission rules are the same as the other categories (15 minutes but however many episodes you want, rather than the previous rule of submitting just one episode), she probably has a strong shot.

    I only watch Y&R and I hardly watched it last year. I would love to see Sharon Case get nominated for Lead Actress. I’d also like to see get Camryn Grimes get a Supporting Actress nod.

    For me I have 5 actors and 5 actresses who I am really hoping will make it this year. For Actors it would be Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith, Lucas Adams, Mike Manning and William Lipton. There are others I would like to see in there too but those are my top 5.

    For Actresses I most hope to see Genie Francis, Alison Sweeney, Nancy Lee Grahn, Maura West and Suzanne Rogers (but she doesn’t usually submit). There are some others who I think did really great work in 2020 as well but those would be my personal top 5 picks who I think did consistently great work last year.

    I think Kristian Alfonso should at least get a nomination for her final episode.

    My wish list is for GH to win Series, Directing and Writing, and then for Best Actor:

    Michael Easton, GH
    Mark Grossman, Y&R
    Roger Howarth, GH
    Chandler Massey, Days
    Robert Scott Wilson, Days

    Best Actress:

    Sharon Case, Y&R
    Nancy Lee Grahn, GH
    Rebecca Herbst, GH
    Finola Hughes, GH
    Maura West, GH

    Best Supporting Actor:

    Lucas Adams, Days
    William deVry, GH
    Mike Manning, Days
    Freddie Smith, Days
    Paul Telfer, Days

    Best Supporting Actress:

    Marla Adams, Y&R
    Genie Francis, GH
    Lisa LoCicero, GH
    Beth Maitland, Y&R
    Suzanne Rogers, Days

    Best Younger Performer:

    Lindsay Arnold, Days
    Olivia Rose Keegan, Days
    Victoria Konefal, Days
    William Lipton, GH
    Eden McCoy, GH
    Sydney Mikayla, GH

    Best Guest Performer:

    Kassie DePaiva, Days
    Jane Elliot, GH
    Louise Sorel, Days
    Alison Sweeney, Days
    “Vincent” (actor who played Vincent), Days

    It will be interesting to see how many of my dream ballot nominees actually make it on to the ballot this year. I usually get about 50% of my wish list most years – hard to know who has submitted and who hasn’t and in which category too.

    There are five performers that I am hoping do not make it onto this year’s list: Maurice Benard, Steve Burton, Laura Wright, Heather Tom and Peter Bergman – I personally find it disappointing when they are nominated, particularly the last two who besides Susan Lucci have the most nominations of anyone. I have simply never warmed to Peter Bergman’s Jack – have always preferred Terry Lester in the role. And I find Heather Tom’s over the top crocodile tears Emmy reels irritating beyond endurance. I dislike the three main characters on GH and simply would prefer other performers from their show to get recognized instead.

    I am always both thrilled and disappointed every single year when the nominations come out. Of course since we never know who did and who did not submit some of the disappointments are misplaced since they didn’t submit anyway. I miss having the pre-nominations list, to know which ten were considered and having opinions and dashed hopes (for example a few years ago when they nominated and awarded Vernee Watson instead of Kirsten Storms, or learning that Chandler Massey submitted in lead for 2018 and they didn’t nominate him)… I usually get 50% of my nominees on the final ballot. Most irritating for me though is when they nominate supporting performances in the lead category – I still believe that Peggy McCay would have won an Emmy had she submitted in Supporting Actress for 2014 (the wedding speech) rather than in the lead category.

    I’d like to see Deidre Hall honored with a Lifetime Achievement Emmy. I don’t think she submits herself anymore for competitive Emmys but she should always be on the short list for Supporting Actress.

    With the nominations coming out tomorrow here is who I am hoping will show up in the performer categories as nominees! I am never sure which category they will submit in, so I am putting them where I think they ought to be! I am hoping I will get my usual 50% of these on the final list tomorrow! (I hardly watched The Bold and the Beautiful during 2020 and that is why I don’t have any nominees for that show).

    Best Lead Actress:

    Sharon Case, The Young and the Restless
    Nancy Lee Grahn, General Hospital

    Robert Scott Wilson, Days Of Our Lives

    Best Supporting Actress:

    Genie Francis, General Hospital

    Very difficult without the pre-noms list to give us a better idea on who submitted and in what category, but here are some names that should be favorites to score a nomination based on performance and material. I am only going to do three of the six acting categories for now.

    Lead Actor

    Maurice Bernard

    Mark Grossman

    Matthew Atkinson

    Thorsten Kaye

    James Patrick Stuart

    Benard is going to be hard to beat if he submits (he sat out last year) from the episodes in August to October. Peter Bergman was the finest male actor on soaps for a long time, but something about his performance last year was very much underwhelming. Grossman and Stuart submitting in supporting again would be disappointing. They belong right here in leading based off last year. Sleeper pick: Steve Burton.

     

    Leading Actress

    Laura Wright

    Sharon Case

    Nancy Lee Grahn

    Jacqueline Macinnes Wood

    Finola Hughes

    No clear cut favorite among these five. You can make a strong case for any of them. IMO, Maura West should not be nominated based on the lack of material. It was the first time in seven years on GH that she didn’t lead her own story. The reel just isn’t there to be a winner. Sleeper pick: Kristen Alfonso. BTW: Heather Tom sitting this one out would be really nice.

    Supporting Actress

    Lisa LoCicero

    Genie Francis

    Alison Sweeney

    Beth Maitland

    Chloe Lanier

    Two horse race between LoCicero and Francis. Both should have dynamite reels that show two completely different sides to their characters. Sleeper pick: Courtney Hope.

    3 of the Best Actress nominees were on my wish list! Genie Francis, Nancy Lee Grahn, and Finola Hughes! Here’s hoping that the rest of the nominations go as well as that category!!!!
