These are actresses who deserved Emmy nominations for their roles on shows for which they did not receive a single nomination. If an actress was nominated for a different show I have included her for a role on a show in which she was never nominated. I will be curious to read your lists. I tried to keep the number down to below 5…
All My Children: Kate Collins (Natalie and Janet), Robin Mattson (Janet), Teresa Blake (Gloria), Lynne Thigpen (Grace)
Another World: Constance Ford (Ada), Anna Stuart (Donna), Alicia Coppola (Lorna), Alice Barrett (Frankie), Carmen Duncan (Iris), Nancy Frangione (Cecile), Judi Evans (Paulina), Sandra Ferguson (Amanda)
As The World Turns: Kathryn Hays (Kim), Margaret Colin (Margo), Hillary B Smith (Margo), Lindsay Frost (Betsy), Tamara Tunie (Jessica), Jennifer Ashe (Meg), Marie Masters (Susan), Helen Wagner (Nancy)

I would add Renee Jones to the list from DOOL.July 26, 2019 at 10:50 am #1202997071
This is a thread that has me tempted to recall, season after season, whether there were actresses who I noted delivered Emmy worthy performances but did not get nominated. And this traces back to when I started following the Daytime Emmys with the 1984–85 television season. The Daytime Emmys were not broadcast prior. They returned on August 1, 1985, and were broadcast by CBS.
The year 1984 is when I tuned in all the daytime soaps: ABC’s All My Children, Edge of Night (which signed off that year), General Hospital, Loving, One Life to Live, and Ryan’s Hope; CBS’s As the World Turns, Capitol, Guiding Light, and The Young and the Restless; NBC’s Another World, Days of Our Lives, Santa Barbara (which premiered that year), and Search for Tomorrow.
There are a lot of soaps and a lot of years!
One of the funniest common occurrences with the Daytime Emmys have been actors and actresses who were Emmy worthy on a prior soap but did not get recognition until being on the right soap. Examples: Jess Walton was terrific as Kelly on Capitol but did not get nominated until playing Jill on The Young and the Restless; Bobbie Eakes was effective yet underappreciated as Macy on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful but didn’t receive Emmy attention until she received two well-earned nominations for playing Krystal on All My Children; and Laura Wright was marvelous as Ally on Loving but did not get a first-ever nomination until 20 years later—a difference between debuting on daytime in 1991 and winning the best-actress Emmy in 2011—for playing Carly on General Hospital.
Some more names I will add (in addition to those mentioned by FreemanGriffin): All My Children’s Tonya Pinkins (a Tony winner in 1992 who should have also received a Daytime Emmy nomination as Livia); As the World Turns’s Renee Props (beautiful work as Ellie particularly with the 1989–90 season); Guiding Light’s Audrey Peters (sublime and, to some extent, taken for granted as Reva’s mother Sarah) and Tina Sloan (who should have been nominated, especially with the early parts, for Lillian’s breast-cancer storyline from the 1991–92 season); and One Life to Live’s Brenda Brock (who was introduced in the storyline in which Erika Slezak’s Viki went to Wild West and, from my memory, should have been acknowledged for her luminous performance from the 1988–89 season) and Patricia Elliott (a 1973 Tony winner who, as Renee, took over from Phyllis Newman and was greatly consistent in excellence; she was especially Emmy worthy during the 1991–92 season for work opposite Thom Christopher’s Carlo Hesser, the supporting-actor Emmy winner from that season).July 26, 2019 at 11:24 am #1202997109
^Thank you for reminding me about Tina Sloan and Patricia Elliott – they are two I would certainly add to my long list (:July 30, 2019 at 9:21 pm #1203003288
Kristina Wagner as Felicia on GH most definitely deserved a nomination for her work during the heart transplant storyline. In particular the harrowing scene when Felicia realizes where Maxie’s new heart came from and breaks down in a sob-filled realization.
