    Oh, I wouldn’t want to give this much focus! (It’s too much.)

    Let me just say that, among those who actually did win Emmys, a big shout-out has to go to the three-time winner Helen Gallagher for her down-to-earth, emotional reality on Ryan’s Hope.

    Seeing that Boidiva02 made a list, it’s fun. There’s no harm. And a big thank-you, from some time ago, to BERLIN2002 for singling out Another World‘s Victoria Wyndham who, frankly, had such conviction with her work on Another World. She was nominated in 1978 and 1979 but I didn’t tune in regularly until the mid-1980s (it was a gradual process; I have now topped 30 years of soap-opera viewership).

    As for this breaking down of the categories…that’s part of the turnoff to me. So many “younger”-acting nominees were carrying lead roles, circa the second half of the 1980s and first half of the 1990s, the only reason they weren’t stepping up to “lead” ranks, on the nomination ballot, was due to office politics. So, I’m not going to get into any categorical listings. But, during my time frame, any salute wouldn’t feel right without mentioning Helen Gallager.

    It’s fun to read people’s lists, though I agree that it is difficult to do this because of category placements that changed year after year.  Would be fun to do it by including the actor/actress and year, but my memory wouldn’t be able to do that.

    Here’s some that came to the top of my head: (bear in mind I have watched soaps since circa 1995)

    One Life to Live (Carlivati years)
    Guiding Light (1997-98 or around the early Paul Rauch/Esensten&Brown years)
    Days of Our Lives 2014
    General Hospital (1995-96, early Guza/Riche years)
    General Hospital (1994-95?, the Labine years)
    The Young and the Restless 1995-97
    As the World Turns (2000-2002?, the Hogan Scheffer years)

    Eric Braeden (Y&R, either the year he lived with Hope, or 1996-97)
    Tony Geary (GH, the year Lucky found out about Laura’s rape)
    Hunt Block (ATWT, early 2000s)
    Billy Miller (Y&R, 2012-13ish)
    Robert Newman (GL, 1997? — the Reva clone story, he was amazing)
    Robert S. Woods (OLTL, the year that Nora cheated with Sam)

    Cynthia Watros (GL, 1996-98, Annie’s reign of terror)
    Eileen Davidson (DOOL, either 1997? or 2014)
    Martha Byrne (ATWT, around the second year that she was playing both Lily and Rose)
    Susan Flannery (B&B, the year she reconnected with her mother)
    Colleen Zenk (ATWT, either when Barbara burned her face or when she went psycho during the Scheffer years)
    Genie Francis (GH, the year of Lucky’s death)
    Melody Thomas Scott (Y&R, either 2014 or 2010-11?)
    Maura West (ATWT, the Scheffer years)
    Debbi Morgan (AMC, 2010-11)
    Leslie Charleson (GH, 1996 breast cancer)

    Michelle Stafford (Y&R, 1994-95 her introduction)
    Cady McClain (ATWT, the Scheffer years)
    Amy Ecklund (GL, the year Abby was raped)
    Jess Walton (Y&R, the year she was convicted of shooting Victor)
    Tonya Lee Williams (Y&R, 1995-96? when Nathan cheated on her and got AIDS)
    Julia Barr (AMC, 1996-97?, the year of the plane crash) 
    Eva LaRue (AMC, 1995-96?, the year of the custody battle and romance with Edmund)
    Maeve Kinkaid (GL, 1995-96?, the romance with Matt and when she thought she got a terminal disease)
    Gina Tognoni (GL, the year Dinah went blind) 
    Beth Ehlers (GL, 1997 or around, the year of her romance with Philip)

    Michael O’Leary (GL, 1996-97) 
    Jerry ver Dorn (GL, the year he found out about Blake and Ben Warren)
    Rick Hearst (B&B, his first year on the show — I loved Whip!)
    Doug Davidson (Y&R, the year Paul Williams was found alive)
    Shemar Moore (Y&R, 1998 or so)
    Trent Dawson (ATWT, mid-2000s)
    Justin Deas (GL, the year Jenna died)
    Stuart Damon (GH, when Alan became addicted to speed — was it speed?)

    Eden Riegel (AMC, the year Bianca came out)
    Jennifer Finnigan (B&B, the Brooke/Deacon reveal)
    Camryn Grimes (Y&R, her early years)
    Rhonda Ross (Another World, the year Toni was raped)
    Kimberly McCullough (GH, the Stone storyline)
    Joie Lenz (GL, as the younger Reva during the clone storyline)
    Sarah Brown (GH, her first year)
    Heather Tom (Y&R, she was phenomenal in the mid-90s)

    David Tom (Y&R, 2000-2001)
    David Lago (Y&R, 2001-03 or about)
    Jonathan Jackson (GH, jeeez so many, I would have to say the year he found out about Laura’s rape, and his relationship with Liz)
    Tom Pelphrey (GL, his introduction to the show)
    Jensen Ackles (DOOL, 1999-2000) 
    Chandler Massey (DOOL, 2012-13)

    Wow, that was fun…  I’m probably forgetting MANY, but those are the ones that stuck out in my head. The mid-90s were a great soap era.

    Soapsarecool, Alan was addicted to a painkiller (hydrocodone). Also the Monica breast cancer storyline went from 94-95. I’d also nominate Brad Maule’s iconic work from May of 1994 when BJ dies. It’s been over 20 years and it is still gut wrenching.

    I had to look up the different categories on wikipedia to make sure I included people from a cross section of different soaps.   Of course it was easier for me to name people from the ABC soaps which I watched most closely… It’s hard cause somebody always gets left out… but I did my best.
