Here is some information on how the second round of voting went this year:
For Drama Series, Directing, Writing, Casting and Ensemble GH had comfortable margins of victory over Days and B&B. Y&R fared really poorly getting only one vote each for Writing and Casting.
For Best Actress Maura West won fairly easily with Ari Zucker in second place and a three way tie for third (Herbst, Thiebaud and Watros). It is Ms. West’s 4th win in the category, breaking the tie for most Best Actress wins over our 20 year Goldies history.
Best Actor was one of the closest categories with Paul Telfer winning by just one vote over Feuerriegel, Flynn and Novlan in 2nd, with just one vote between them and Atkinson and Vaughan.
Best Supporting Actress was a fairly comfortable win for Genie Francis with Brook Kerr in 2nd, Kathleen Gati and Cady McClain in 3rd, and Kirsten Storms in last place. It is her 2nd Goldies win in this category and her 4th overall.
Best Supporting Actor was a two man contest with Chandler Massey winning his 4th Goldies by a one vote margin over Greg Rikaart. Shaugnnessy and Tinker were in a distant third and Lindstrom didn’t get any votes in the final round.
Younger Actress was as close as Best Actor – Sidney Mikayla won by one vote over her replacement Tabyana Ali, Eden McCoy and Avery Kristen Pohl – all tied for second! Ms. Mikayla won her second in a row despite only appearing on the show for 17 episodes!
Nicholas Chavez had the largest margin of victory, with William Lipton in a distant second, and Hofer and Samiri tying for last place. Chavez was a repeat winner as well this year.
Alison Sweeney won her 4th Goldies for Guest or Limited Performer and now has 6 Goldies in all. Jane Elliot and Casey Moss tied for 2nd, with Alley Mills in 3rd and John Aniston in last place.
Alison Sweeney had a narrow margin of victory over Susan Flannery for Lifetime Achievement with Victoria Wyndham doing well one vote behind in third place. Julia Barr and Hillary B Smith both received a single vote in the category.
9 of the ten Hall of Fame nominees made it to the 2/3 threshold. Sonya Eddy, Anne Heche and Barbara Walters would have been nominated if it had not been for the 3 recently deceased rule – they will be eligible of course in the future.
Performer of the Year went to Maura West for a third time in the five year history of the category. This makes her our most honored performer with a total of seven Goldies. Nicholas Chavez came in 2nd, Cynthia Watros in 3rd, Kelly Thiebaud in 4th, Alison Sweeney in 5th place (despite only appearing in 10 episodes!). 26 performers out of 34 were cited for Performer of the Year.ReplyCopy URL

Surprise surprise, another GH lovefest lol.
Zero nominations for Y&R in the performer categories is appalling, especially when Y&R’s acting ensemble continues to set the bar. But I get it, there’s only a few of us here that regularly watch and are truly invested in the show, so this outcome was to be expected.
As much as I love me some Ali Sweeney and Maura West, both winning two Goldies feels a bit like overkill, considering how competitive the past year was.ReplyCopy URL

Lol! I had a feeling I’d be in the minority.ReplyCopy URL

Congratulations to all of the winners, and thank you, Freeman, for once again pulling these together!
Some of those stats are interesting, especially taken in tandem. I’m very surprised that Cynthia Watros, Rebecca Herbst and Kelly Thiebaud all tied for third place in Best Actress. I would have guessed Watros would win. But she then leapfrogged Best Actress runner-up Arianne Zucker for third place in Performer of the Year. Paul Telfer winning Best Actor also really surprised me.
Not to suggest that any individual winner is undeserving, but I do think there could be some merit to discussing ways to make the awards a little more dynamic next year. In theory, the fact that most of us don’t watch Y&R and/or B&B on a regular basis shouldn’t preclude either show from having a shot at the awards. I realize that who is watching what is also largely a product of the quality of the show, but everyone also has a strong bent to vote for their favorites. And I don’t mean to suggest that anyone is doing anything wrong — people love Jon Lindstrom and Maura West and Alison Sweeney and Chandler Massey, and who can blame them? — but when the favorite shows and performers of the group skew as heavily as they do in a certain direction, is there anything we can do to try to make things more balanced? Freeman, I know you and I have discussed ways to try to get more people voting, which I think would be best, but so far not much luck. It also doesn’t help, of course, that there are only four shows.ReplyCopy URLNot now
