GH pretty much swept everything lol.
And a tie! We love to see it! So Camryn Grimes’ victory here reboots that past Goldies trend of Y&R securing a win every year in at least one category. Interesting…ReplyCopy URLJanuary 27, 2022 at 3:18 pm #1204755277
So here’s some info on the voting in this round!
There were quite a few landslide or close to landslide wins: GH for Best Series, Directing, Writing and Ensemble Cast; the biggest performer win was newcomer Nicholas Alexander Chavez who joined the cast mid-year and managed to get the most votes of anyone in this year’s Goldies (due partly to a lack of competition admittedly – he got all but two votes, both of which went to co-star William Lipton), and Sydney Mikayla got a pretty large win despite three votes for Alyvia Alyn Lind, two for Eden McCoy and one for Lindsay Arnold. Bill Hayes win for Lifetime Achievement was also by a wide margin, with Kim Zimmer in a distant second place.
Greg Vaughan won fairly handily over Marla Gibbs and Jane Elliot, tied for second, and Ted King and Naomi Matsudi, tied for third.
The closest vote was obviously Supporting Actress, where a tie occurred on the very last ballot!
There were 3 one vote victories: Cynthia Watros over Kirsten Storms (the last ballot broke a tie!); Josh Swickard over Paul Telfer; and Mike Manning over James Patrick Stuart! Also: GH winning for Casting was a one vote victory over Days!
Our experiment with a hall of fame voting for the Legacy award wound up with 3 recently deceased within this past calendar year, and 4 winners who had passed from earlier than last year. 4 soap performers, a talk show host, a game show host, and a children’s show host!
General Hospital won 10 Goldies, Days Of Our Lives won 3 (I am including Bill Hayes win), and The Young and the Restless won 1 Goldies this year.
Performer of the year was also extremely close between Cynthia Watros and Kirsten Storms, with others who did well including Deidre Hall, Mike Manning, Alison Sweeney, and Nancy Lee Grahn.ReplyCopy URL

Interesting behind the scenes info!
Deciding my casting vote between DAYS and GH was really tough for me. It’s the one I thought about the longest, and both shows had some fantastic casting in 2021. I’m surprised that apparently no one but me voted for Lindsay Arnold. That was another tough decision for me between her and Sydney Mikayla, though ultimately I felt like Lindsay just had more material and was really stellar with it. I’m also surprised that William Lipton didn’t put up a stronger fight in younger actor, with how great he was in the aftermath of Franco’s death.ReplyCopy URL

I voted for Chavez largely on the strength of him taking a character that was beloved with the previous actor and establishing himself firmly and appealingly in the role while more than holding his own with celebrated vets.ReplyCopy URL

Thanks again FreemanGriffin for doing this! Great winners. The GH sweep was not unexpected; I don’t think there’s any question that the show was the best last year.
My favorite win: Bill Hayes for Lifetime Achievement! <3ReplyCopy URL

My favorite win has to be Lisa LoCicero.
My biggest surprise is Greg Vaughn. Nothing against him, I just thought Jane Elliot had that category in the bag!ReplyCopy URLFebruary 6, 2022 at 2:57 pm #1204780480
Looking forward to seeing how many of our nominees wind up getting Daytime Emmy nominations this year. We usually get around 50% – for the most part I think almost all of our nominees would be worthy nominees but there are plenty of others who could assemble amazing reels too…ReplyCopy URLNot now
