Sounds like it was pretty much a clean sweep for ABC’s lone sudser this year. and wow, this has to be the first time CBS has been totally shut-out of the Goldies right? In previous years CBS was fairly dominant right?January 26, 2020 at 9:38 pm #1203313504
GH really deserved top honors this year, producing some great soap opera.
While it’s true that CBS, and Y&R in particular, strongly dominated the Goldies in the early years, I recall the last couple of years being heavily focused on DAYS and GH.January 27, 2020 at 3:58 am #1203313989
There were 5 categories that were won by one vote: Best Directing and Best Casting (Days in 2nd place), Jon Lindstrom over Chandler Massey, Robin Strasser over Marla Adams and Alison Sweeney (tied for 2nd), and surprisingly Kristoff St. John over James Mitchell and Hogan Sheffer (tied for 2nd).
The biggest margins of victory were Maura West’s wins for Best Actress and Performer of the year, followed by GH’s Drama Series win.
2nd place in other categories: Days for Series, Ensemble, and Writing; Camila Banus, Brandon Barash, Deidre Hall, Olivia Rose Keegan, Casey Moss and Eric Braeden.
Very few were “skunked” (didn’t get any votes) this year: Y&R for Drama Series and Writing; Arianne Zucker, Parry Shen and Lucas Adams.
Maura West is now at 5 Goldies, the most for any performer – she won for a second year in a row in both Best Actress and Performer of the year.
Roger Howarth won his first Goldie. Jon Lindstrom his second (in a row). Suzanne Rogers won her 3rd and 4th Goldies. Eden McCoy and Garen Stitt were first-time winners. Robin Strasser won her 3rd Goldie. Kristoff St. John his first.
19 performers were cited for Performer of the Year. Maura West won by a huge margin, with a pileup for 2nd place: Chandler Massey, Paul Telfer, Jon Lindstrom, Camila Banus, Olivia Rose Keegan, Robert Scott Wilson and Suzanne Rogers!
In the first round of voting it looked like Nancy Lee Grahn was going to get a nomination but Beth Maitland and Gina Tognoni took her spot at the last moment in a tie for 4th place.
Parry Shen took the 4th spot instead of Jordi Vilasuso.
GH won only it’s 2nd Best Drama Series Goldie this year (2012 was the other year it won). 4th win for Directing, 2nd for Writing, 4th for Ensemble and Casting.January 27, 2020 at 10:05 am #1203314580
Thanks for that insider info, Freeman! About how many voters did we get?
Seems like most of the people I voted for came in first or second, with my ballot being a pretty even DAYS/GH split. I had the hardest time voting in best actress. I went in thinking I’d be voting for Maura, but then switched to Arianne, and then, when trying to decide on a performer of the year, ended up switching to Camila for both categories. I was definitely influenced by looking at last year’s winners and applying extra scrutiny to anyone who won last year. The biggest surprise to me, actually, was Garen Stitt winning younger actor, which I expected to come down to William Lipton over Casey Moss.January 27, 2020 at 11:13 am #1203314716
^ I was thinking about Lipton but I rewatched those episodes where Oscar passes. That’s one of the best episodes a soap has done in years.January 27, 2020 at 11:51 pm #1203316019
There’s been at least one tie in the acting categories every consecutive year since 2015. This year, not a single tie. Hmmm… coincidence?January 29, 2020 at 5:02 pm #1203319091
I haven’t voted in years, but only because once OLTL and AMC went off the air I basically stopped watching soaps. And I don’t want to skew the voting since I don’t watch any of the remaining four soaps enough right now to be familiar enough to vote in a fair manner.
