    I want Jon Lindstrom to win but worry that Maurice Benard’s submission will win it. Tyler Christopher’s second part of his submission is the best acting he has ever done and is definitely Emmy-worthy. Billy Flynn and Peter Bergman submitted really well too. I am predicting Jon Lindstrom but feeling really unsure about it.

    1. Maurice Benard

    2. Peter Bergman

    3. Tyler Christopher

    4. Jon Lindstrom

    5. Billy Flynn

    What a difference a year makes in this category. Much better submissions this time around. Lead actor has been lukewarm in recent memory. Benard couldn’t have picked a better dramatic reel from that excellent story. I have a feeling it will leave the strongest impression. He was great in those episodes and made magic with Gail.

    Yeah Maurice Benard will probably get this but I do like Peter Bergman’s reel. Excellent acting dealing with Jack’s paternity, the aftermath and finding out Ashley rigged the results.

    I don’t see Maurice winning as much as I love his acting.

    I see Peter or Tyler winning.

    Jon’s reel is good but I can’t see him winning this year maybe next year.

    Billy’s is good especially when he finds out Stefan is the father.

    Oh god Maurice is gonna win this. That’s so crappy. That scene at the end is a good sweet kicker and …Jesus this is gonna be a crummy Sunday.

    I think Maurice Bernard has the strongest reel— I thought Jon Lindstrom would, but his is just not layered or nuanced enough. However, clearly the Emmy voters do not really enjoy MB’s work (neither do I, usually), so I think Tyler Christopher will win. His reel is fantastic and subtle. He’s the dark horse here.

    5. Jon Lindstrom, GH
    His reel dragged on for what seemed like forever, and it felt like the same scene was happening over and over again! This is an example of how NOT to make an Emmy reel. Which is awful, because Jon Lindstrom has really been doing some fantastic work in the Kevin/Ryan storyline. It’s a pity that his reel does not showcase much of it.
    4. Billy Flynn, DAYS
    I really appreciate the dramatic/comedic contrast in this reel…I remember thinking Billy Flynn did some wonderful work when he found out Abigail was pregnant back when the episode aired. And the scenes delivering the baby mesh so well. I don’t think he will win, and I think there are people who deserve it more, but this is a solid reel.
    3. Peter Bergman, YR
    This really tugs on the heartstrings. I’ve never been a huge fan of Jack Abbott, but I really did feel for him in this reel…The moments with Ashley leading up to the explosion at the end of the reel were fantastic. I’m impressed! I wouldn’t be surprised if he won; he is an Emmy favorite, after all.
    2. Maurice Bernard, GH
    I have to preface this: I really DON’T like Maurice Bernard as an actor, nor do I enjoy his character on GH. But this reel is so poignant, and subtle…out of all his years on GH, it might be my favorite work of his. It’s so well constructed, and I love that it finishes with the Nurse’s Ball performance. I wouldn’t mind seeing him win at all!
    1. Tyler Christopher, DAYS
    As much as Maurice Bernard’s reel touched me, this reel had me on the edge of my seat. That scene with Kate Mansi is, without a doubt, one of the best scenes in daytime television all year. I was worried this reel might seem disjointed, but when I watched it all, it worked perfectly; it had ups and downs and transitioned smoothly. It shows so many facets and layers of Stefan DiMera…bravo TC! He might not win because his work isn’t flashy, but he deserves it in my opinion.

    I desperately want Tyler to win so bad. It’s like I can taste his or Bergmann’s victory.

    Have people actually seen the reels or are they basing it on memory? I haven’t found any of the reels on any sites. They may “play” differently than they are described.

    I’m going based off memory since we can’t view them online. I watch all 4 shows.

    Daniel Montgomery and I are doing in-depth analysis and will be doing a slugest in the next week or so.

    Based on my viewing of the reels (I got press access), this is a race between Bergman and Bernard. They both submitted perfectly. Flynn and Christopher are out. Flynn submitted badly and Christopher’s is too villainous. Lindstrom could win, but his acting might be too subtle. Benard’s reel is heartbreaking, but for someone that’s usually over-the-top, his reel is almost too subtle. Bergman has one of the best reels he has ever submitted, but Y&R underperformed, and I’m not sure how many people realize he hasn’t won in 17 years.

    It’s going to be either Bergman or Benard, but as Benard’s show has the more personal storyline, I give him the edge for now.

    Bergman’s scenes, or what I remember to be the scenes from the synopsis, are almost a continuation of Davidson’s reel, except last year was Jack’s renaissance year in contrast to Ashley’s the year before. The nominations for many of the players involved showed the power of this storyline during the 2018 Daytime Emmys, carrying into this year’s Daytime Emmys as well.

    From what I have been able to see from YouTube clips of parts of Benard’s story, Sonny seems subdued, subtle, fearful, and consumed with his father’s future and care. He is a mobster with heart. If Gail wins, I don’t know if Benard will. I’ve almost never seen close screen partners win both titles.

    Intense, white-hot rage scenes are in Bergman’s wheelhouse and could be one of the reasons his character gets so many of these kind of scenes. It is also helpful his reel synopsis ends with a powerhouse performance as Jack lights into Ashley.

    As I see it, Benard’s story is a fish out of water story; Bergman’s is a fish in water story. I would be just as happy if Bergman walked away with a nomination after this year’s ceremony. He gave everything he had and took this storyline to the hilt.

    Should win: Oh sweet justice, Peter Bergman! His character has been through hell lately. Plus, winning for his 30th year on Y&R would be icing on the cake.

    Will win: Most likely GH/Days. Daytime Emmys always surprise/upset and I know, are far from over, but I have a funny feeling about Bergman…

    If Bergman wins I’ll be over the moon this reel in particular is good as it gets

    My rankings:

    1. Jon Lindstrom
    2. Tyler Christopher
    3. Billy Flynn
    4. Peter Bergman
    5. Maurice Benard

    I have no idea what this year’s blue ribbon panel is going to do in this category but I am rooting hard for Jon Lindstrom – he definitely has the material to be competitive again next year if he doesn’t win this year.
