I didn’t know he took a leave of absence. I love him on the show. I hope he comes back asap.January 25, 2019 at 10:53 am #1202748185
^they tape so far ahead (six months from what I have heard?) he hasn’t left yet; Brandon Barash will be filling in for him in his role. I am not sure for how long though?January 25, 2019 at 11:32 am #1202748272
The nominations will be announced on Wednesday, March 20. The ceremony will be on Sunday, May 5.January 25, 2019 at 1:19 pm #1202748395

Ummm have you not been paying attention to the news? Christopher isn’t coming back to the show. They announced in November that Barash is taking over the role permanently.January 25, 2019 at 5:45 pm #1202748805
They really need to ditch the Younger categories. The Younger Actor options in that lineup are actually Embarrassing.January 25, 2019 at 5:50 pm #1202748808
^victornewman, anyone who wanted to put their name in got in, there are actaully no “pre-nominations’ in the younger acting categories. They just submit and are automatically on the list. Casey Moss, for example, didn’t submit this year ): He would have been my winner if he had. I am wondering if there will only be 3 or 4 nominees in Younger Actor since there are only 8 choices?January 26, 2019 at 9:58 pm #1202749882
For Lead Actress I feel like West, Heinle, Miller, and Stafford will get in.
I think Hughes, Davidson, Tom, or Case will get that last slot..or we may get 6 nominees this year and two of them will make it.January 27, 2019 at 1:49 am #1202750007
I read that there is only one round of voting this year. I don’t underestand why it takes them so long to vote. In this day and age of technology there is no reason for it to take so many months not only to vote but then to have the awards show. It’s ridiculous.
btw the voting is done by using ordinals. Each blue ribbon panelist chooses their top five and gives them points from 1-5 and the rest of the pre-nominees all get 6’s, then the LOWEST number is the winner.
So my ballot if I were a blue ribbon panelist would look like this for Best Actress:
1 Maura West
2 Amelia Heinle
3 Sharon Case
4 Marci Miller
5 Eileen Davidson
(in alphabetical order:)
6 Finola Hughes
6 Jacqueline MacInnes Wood
6 Michelle Stafford
6 Heather Tom
6 Laura Wright
That’s how it is done in all the acting categories.
I wonder how many nominees there will be in Younger Actor? Only 8 actors submitted; is that 3 or 4 nominees for the category?January 27, 2019 at 11:42 pm #1202752243
I’m just getting around to reacting to these, but I saw them as soon as they came out. I was kind of shocked by some of the people who are prenommed, and surprised and disappointed by some of the people who aren’t. I think I was most sad that Robert Scott Wilson didn’t get a supporting actor prenom. He was consistently great last year. Other than that I think my biggest surprises were who was in which categories. The list of guest performers was a little crazy. A few specifics:
It is stunning to me that Kate Mansi qualifies as a guest performer. I know she only came onto the show in late November/early December, so she didn’t have that many appearances, but I still would have assumed supporting.
Great to see JMW submit and be pre-nommed in lead. Ditto for Jon Lindstrom. (Didn’t James Patrick Stuart get a lead prenom sometime in the last couple of years, or am I making that up? He’s also never been on contract. Judi Evans has been on recurring for DAYS for a couple of years now and she also got pre-nommed in lead last year. It’s surprising not uncommon.)
So glad to see Mishael Morgan on the supporting actress list, and really surprised that Martha Madison submitted there, but good for her. I hope they both get nominated. It’s funny that John Black and all three of his kids were pre-nommed, with Drake Hogestyn, Christopher Sean, and Eric Martsolf all making the cut.
Speaking of supporting actor, what a fun surprise seeing Greg Rikaart show up there. He’s probably got a great chance at a nomination, which the hilarious scenes around Leo and Sonny’s wedding and a few of the other pre-nominees feeling like non-starters. I know that’s a dangerous mindset, since these guys obviously beat out some people we really like to make the list, but it’s still hard to imagine, like, Aaron D. Spears, for example, making the final five.
The two categories that feel underwhelming to me are younger actor — I wonder if Casey Moss didn’t submit because he didn’t feel like it or because it was mad about losing last year? His work in 2018 ran circles around the rest of that group — and lead actor, where many of these guys were underwhelming or annoying in their storylines in 2018.
Lead actress is very strong and supporting actress is very interesting. I can’t wait to see the reels that come out of those categories. With now a 15-minute limit of material you can submit, it will probably be even more challenging to pick the right scenes. I’m also just going to say I hope for her sake Maura West doesn’t take up time on her reel with those scenes where Ava sees Kiki’s body on the stretcher and is telling her to get up. I found it very difficult to get emotionally invested in the scene when something that felt so nonsensical was happening.January 28, 2019 at 5:24 am #1202752478
I wonder if Casey Moss just feels that they are never going to give him an Emmy? He finally got in last year, was told he was definitely going to win (for good reason!) and lost! He may have just decided to heck with it. Garen Stitt is my runner-up so now he’s my #1.
I disagree respectfully about Maura West, who must put the scene with Kiki’s dead body on her reel. Since they can now just put any 15 minutes of material on, she can just put those 2-3 minutes on to other scenes from earlier in the year. It should be Heinle vs. West, but it’s always hard to tell.
I would be upset if Greg Rikaart were nominated. He is fun but not Emmy-worthy imo. I know they are going to go for Max Gail, and he will likely win (I just plain don’t like him in his role, but everybody else does) – I am hoping Christopher Sean gets a parting gift and gets a nomination, along with Eric Martsolf, Wes Ramsey, Thad Luckinbill and Darin Brooks. But I think Bryton James will get yet another nomination for the Hillary dying story.
I was surprised by Kate Mansi making it in – both Abigail’s could get nominated this year. I must have blinked and missed them because although I watched 3 of the shows all year long and B&B more intermittently I don’t remember most of the guest performer pre-nominees work at all, with few exceptions. I do hope Hunter Tylo gets a nomination, and Patricia Bethune as well. Some are citing Wayne Brady and I don’t remember him at all?
Does anybody know what the rule is when there are only 8 in a category? Will Younger Actor have 3, 4 or 5 nominees?February 1, 2019 at 10:03 pm #1202758660
what is “opens a new window” supposed to mean?February 2, 2019 at 5:20 am #1202758835

Yeah, I’m still trying to wrap my head around Massey getting snubbed.
There are just certain glaring omissions this year, along with some people getting a pre-nom that honestly shouldn’t have received one. I just can’t with the inclusion of Linsey Godfrey. She’s a talented woman and one of my faves on Twitter, but her contribution to the canvas last year was minimal at best. Also, don’t get me started on Wes Ramsey. He seems like a nice enough guy but I don’t think he should be included either. Of course that’s just my opinion.
Right now, the sure fire bets for me are Days for outstanding writing, and Max Gail for Supporting Actor. That writing award literally belongs to Carlivati this year. When it comes to Gail, he did such a superb job that it almost made GH watchable when he was featured in 2018. I said almost…
The toughest race for me to call this year has to be Outstanding Lead Actress. It’s looking like a nail biter to me. For the final nominations I pick….
Eileen Davidson, (Y&R)
Amelia Heinle (Y&R)
Marci Miller (Days)
Maura West (GH)
Laura Wright (GH)
I think the winner will be Maura West, but with this group of actresses, and the performances they put in last year, you can’t feel overwhelmingly confident about projecting a winner. Last year, I KNEW Davidson would take the award, but I don’t think this year will be a repeat for Eileen. Others had better material in 2018, and had breakthrough moments on camera that will resonate with voters. I can’t see Laura Wright going home with a statue either. I am almost certain she will get a nod just out of habit, but it wasn’t her strongest year. As a matter of fact, if I were basing it strictly of performances and material, I’d give Laura Wright’s spot to Sharon Case, but Wright is an Emmy darling! I just can’t see a situation that would exclude her from the final nods, so I have to include her.
The three remaining ladies had more dramatic and high stakes moments to pull from than Davidson or Wright, so they are easily off my list of potential winners. Then we have Amelia Heinle and Marci Miller, two strong actresses that carried the main stories on their respective shows through most of the year. Both of them had moments and scenes that could tip this award in their direction. Their story lines could not have been more different. Heinle carried a gut wrenching story revolving around spousal abuse, giving onscreen moments that literally churned my stomach on several occasions. Miller had the Ron Carlivati special to chew on, DID. If some other young actresses had been given this story in daytime, they would have camped it up to the heavens and that would have annoyed the pure piss out of me. Marci Miller didn’t sink into camp or overact through the span of the story. Most of the time she made strategic acting choices and remained believable and understated in a story that is as realistic as a Star Wars movie. Then, when the time was right, she’d ramp it up and tare into a scene like a pit bull would tare into a steak. I can think of several key moments that could potentially bring her the award, but she’s not my pic. Both she and Heinle are dark horses, IMO. If they do a get the right scenes to voters, one could easily sneak in a bring an upset.
So I think this is Maura West’s year to bring home Emmy gold because she has scenes in her arsenal that scream “Give me the Emmy!” I made it clear that I think Heinle and Miller may have scenes that could tip the scales in their favor, but neither of them have the scenery chewing scenes given to West this year. 2018 was an embarrassment of riches for Maura, and though I am less sure about this category than I was last year with Eileen, I still feel confident enough to pick West and run with it.
And Eileen, my dear…If you want to add some more gold trophies to your collection, I suggest you accept Days offer and return. I mean, I’m quite happy with Haiduk, and the truth is she was flat out snubbed herself in the supporting actress category. However, if Mal would have just let you do double duty last year, you’d be nominated for lead at Y&R, and supporting at Days, and your portrayal as Kristen would have won the day. That was meaty material, a soap actresses dream come true.
I’ll post about other categories later. Sorry folks, I’m long winded.February 4, 2019 at 10:13 am #1202761069
^^It’s so funny that Laura Wright is now an Emmy darling, at least as far as racking up nominations, when she went totally unrecognized for her work on Guiding Light, during which time I remember there being a lot of complaints about her being snubbed.
