    I thought the creation and implementation of the younger-acting performance categories, beginning in 1985, was smart. Then, by the first half of the 1990s, I gained a new perspective: they were a way of keeping young actors away from those actors who submitted and were nominated for lead. So many—too many—competed at this third tier when they should have been in the first tier. Barely anyone went against this. I can think of Santa Barbara’s Marcy Walker, who was 25 when she was first nominated as a lead in 1987, and won at age 27 in 1989, and that is it.

    DSO816 I totally agree. Unfortunately it sometimes worked against an actor. No doubt One Life To Live’s Bree Williamson would have made the cut and won in 2008 for Best Younger Lead Actress for her breakout performance as Tess year one. Sadly the actress had aged out of the category and the show rightfully submitted her in Lead Actress where she belonged. Yet some in the industry took a ” Who does she think she is competing with big gals when she should be in younger?” attitude. If Bree Williamson had played it safe like Susan Haskell did in 1994 by going in Best Supporting Actress ( Susan had also aged out of Younger Lead ) she might have gotten in. I hate category fraud and applaud the show for submitting Bree in Lead where she belonged.

    ^You must mean for 2007 (in 2008)? Because Bree Williamson was nominated for 2008, 2009 and 2010 for Best Supporting Actress, and deserved to win at least one of the three times – she lost to Tamara Braun (Ava, Days), Julie Pinson, and Heather Tom. It is ridiculous she never won.

    I also thought it was crazy that Robin Strasser, Kassie DePaiva and Hillary B Smith got such a meager number of nominations (4, 1 and 2 respectively). At least Robin and Hillary won Emmys for their roles but Kassie still has never won an Emmy.

    It’s crazy a lot of these young actors/actresses were carrying the bulk of these storylines and they couldn’t compete in the lead category

    Whoops, my bad, I meant 2007 for Bree. I think there was a voting bias against One Life To Live in general unless your name was Erika Slezak. I can’t argue that she was named checked because she was deserving of her nominations and most of her wins. The fact that Emmy winner does not preface Kassie DePaiva’s name is criminal. While the Emmys does acknowledge what is good, it’s also a popularity contest.I’d argue that it’s the actors off screen work that gets them a nomination more so than their onscreen work. Robin Strasser having only one win is outrageous. But unfortunately she’s in the same boat with Victoria Wyndham and Melody Scott Thomas, actresses that delivered Emmy winning work but can’t get nominated to save their lives due to the fact that they weren’t/aren’t well liked by their current or past fellow cast members.

    I remember that whole brouhaha about Bree Williamson being submitted in lead. Before that, I didn’t realize how much both people within the industry and critics/viewers associate the acting levels not with screen time or storyline prominence, but respect, time served, and general importance, which is really a shame.

    At the same time, though, I think having the younger categories was a great way of rewarding young talent and incentivizing that young talent to stick around in the industry rather than leaving for greener pastures.

    Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith were discussing how when they tried to submit in lead they couldn’t get a nomination – the only year Chandler didn’t get nominated that he submitted was for 2018 when he submitted in lead – and they submit in the supporting category as a result of it. My biggest pet peeve about the nominations is when someone who is clearly a supporting performer is nominated in lead (Peggy McCay, Jess Walton, Tracey Bregman, Thaao Penghlis – the latter wasn’t even supporting but was really only a guest performer the year he was nominated in lead).

    It was odd to me that Kristen Alderson had to wait until Starr was on GH to get a nomination (and an Emmy) – it was always strange that she was never nominated for OLTL. Erin Torpey only got ONE nomination! I wonder what the nominators had against OLTL?

    Hi – this is FYI

    I’m the person that puts together past Daytime Emmy Reels on YouTube

    I joined this forum because I need information I can’t seem to get anywhere else

    Does anyone know what the second reel the following actresses submitted to win the “Younger Actress Emmy”

    Sarah Michelle Gellar – All My Children 1995

    Sarah Brown – General Hospital 1997 & 1998

    I only know one of the two shows these actresses submitted. If you know what the second show was, I can update their reel.

    Thanks in advance.

    I’ve often wondered about Gellar and Brown’s second reels myself. I wonder if Gellar picked Kendall’s appearance at Mona’s funeral. Those were some good scenes. I can only imagine what Brown picked. She would have won with the scenes they showed during the telecast alone.

    Do you plan on putting reels together for Lead Actor, Supporting Actor, Younger Actor, and Drama series in the near future? I’ve seen countless episodes of the best drama Series wins
