^^^ Agreed, Sharon Case always shines with this kind of material. And Alyvia has been killing it pretty much all year, such an incredible talent!March 26, 2021 at 10:16 am #1204159594
I am citing Alyvia Alyn Lind for her phenomenal performance on the March 26 episode of Y&R – Faith learns that the boy she has been falling in love with online is actually a female cyber bully. AAL gives a beautiful performance as a heartbroken teenaged girl who is being bullied. She is truly delivering superb performances!!!!April 1, 2021 at 9:32 am #1204169197

Nancy Lee Grahn as Alexis Davis (GH)
Even after her friends and family try to talk her out of it, Alexis pleads guilty to assault and attempted murder and is sentenced to 3 years in prison.April 8, 2021 at 12:04 pm #1204186624
Drama Series GH
Lead Actress: Nancy Lee Grahn as Alexis Davis on General Hospital
WOW. Just wow. This standalone episode that honors NLG for 25 years on the show is powerful, has incredible range and is seared in my brain. Also great seeing NLG with a lot of her best scene partners over the years (Monaco, Ainsworth, Pullos, Rademacher, Kurth, Easton, Stuart) as each brings out a different part of one of the most rewarding characters and actresses on this show. This should be a top contender next year!April 8, 2021 at 1:22 pm #1204186822
I also wish to cite Nancy Lee Grahn for a beautiful performance on today’s episode!April 9, 2021 at 7:06 am #1204187970

Outstanding Supporting Actress
Victoria Konefal – Ciara Brady
Marlena hypnotizes Ciara, and she remembers the fire at the cabin that almost killed her. Traumatized, Ciara assumes Ben set the fire to try to kill her, but Marlena tells her it was Claire. Ciara confronts Claire and learns that Claire actually tried to burn her alive twice. She declares that she wants nothing to do with Ben or Claire and seeks comfort in Theo’s arms.
Great work by Victoria in these scenes. This storyline isn’t very compelling on paper, but I do really enjoy all of VK’s scenes. These would probably feel stronger if they were competing in the younger performer category, but I believe with the rule changes that Konefal is aged out of the category now.April 11, 2021 at 5:42 pm #1204194743

The Bold and the Beautiful
Outstanding Lead Actor: Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer)
Outstanding Lead Actor: Don Diamont (Bill Spencer)
Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series
Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series
After regaining consciousness at the Spencer mansion, Liam is overcome by the grim reality of the events that transpired earlier that night, in which he accidentally hit Vinny with his car on a dark stretch of the road on his and Bill’s way home. Believing he is responsible for Vinny’s death, a panic-stricken Liam wants to turn himself in to the police, but Bill is able to dissuade him from doing so. Convinced that the police would prosecute his son on the basis of murder charges given Liam’s complicated history with Vinny, Bill vows to protect Liam at all costs.
Powerful performances from both Clifton and Diamont, who play so well off each other here. Wonderful direction by Jennifer Howard in the build-up of tension and suspense. Huge props to Brad Bell and the writing team for crafting this perfectly-timed, intriguing murder mystery. Particularly loved some of the humorous notes Shannon B. Bradley (Wed. ep.) mingles into the script, which works as a nice contrast with all the intensity of the dramatic parts in the episode.April 15, 2021 at 11:01 am #1204202407

Days of our Lives
Outstanding Lead Actress
Marci Miller — Abigail Deveraux
Abigail overhears Jack and Gwen say that Gwen is pregnant with Chad’s baby. She’s furious, and at first doesn’t believe it. Once convinced, she pushes Gwen to terminate the pregnancy.
Wow, Abigail is taking no prisoners and neither is Marci Miller. She’s been great in this story and with giving her version of Abigail more of the edge that Kate Mansi’s version has. This performance is full throttle but doesn’t feel overdone. I especially love it with the capper at the end where Abigail goes home and tells Chad. I don’t love this story on paper, but I absolutely enjoy every minute Marci is on screen.
