Interesting list of nominees! Thanks for putting these together, Freeman. I guess once all of the voting is over, you can tell us some behind-the-scenes stuff like which races were close, who almost made the cut, who surprised with their lack of votes, etc.?January 16, 2020 at 12:08 pm #1203288000
Thanks, Freeman! It’s a great list… and probably a lot better than the upcoming Emmy noms.January 16, 2020 at 12:40 pm #1203288033
I can share who almost made it in each category, and how many performers were cited:
For Actress Rebecca Herbst and Katherine Kelly Lang came close to making it; there were 11 actresses who received votes.
For Actor Mark Grossman and Eric Martsolf came close; there were 10 actors who received votes.
For Supporting Actress Nancy Lee Grahn came close; there were 15 actresses who received votes.
For Supporting Actor Jordi Vilasuso surprisingly came close; there were 12 actors who received votes.
For Younger Actress Sasha Calle came close; there were 9 actresses who received votes.
For Younger Actor nobody else came close and there were the fewest in any category to receive votes, with only 6 actors getting any votes.
For Guest/Limited Performer William Utay and Judi Evans came close; there were 15 performers who received votes.
For Lifetime Achievement Ken Corday came close; there were 12 who reeived votes. I was very surprised that last year’s nominee Kim Zimmer didn’t receive any votes this year.
For the Legacy Award James E Reilly and Frank Parker came close; there were 13 who received votes.
B&B had 8 performers who received votes. Days had 28. GH had 21. Y&R had 20. (I am pretty sure I got these numbers right!)
Thanks to everyone who voted! I look forward to finding out who this year’s winners are! (:January 16, 2020 at 2:59 pm #1203288250
Curious, was voting turnout during this round even less than that of last year?January 19, 2020 at 6:32 am #1203292126
I wonder what you guys think about what I should do if there is a tie? Should I go with whoever won in the first round of voting or do want ties? We had a 3-way tie in Supporting Actress last year…
btw, besides the four Best Actor nominees the other actors who we cited were: Matthew Atkinson, Michael Easton, Mark Grossman, Thorsten Kaye, Eric Martsolf, and Joshua Morrow.
Besides the four Best Actress nominees the other actresses who we cited were: Sharon Case, Amelia Heinle, Rebecca Herbst, Katherine Kelly Lang, Michelle Stafford, Melody Thomas Scott, and Heather Tom.January 19, 2020 at 3:42 pm #1203292962
It’s no secret, I always welcome a tie but I know others here have been pretty vocal in their objection to ties in the past. I admit a three-way tie is a bit much, in which case we could proceed as you’ve suggested, rendering a winner with the most votes during the nominations round. But perhaps someone else has another idea on how to work around a three-way tie?January 20, 2020 at 8:03 am #1203294787
I don’t feel all that strongly about it, but I’m generally against ties, especially when there are only four nominees. I would delay the results by a day or so and do a 24-hour runoff for any ties. If the votes come back tied again, the tie stands. I also don’t like using the first-round voting points because people may have been voting more strategically and skewed the numbers. For example, if I assumed that Jon Lindstrom would get nominated, I might have put him third or fourth on my ballot in favor of someone I thought was more of a longshot getting the first place spot, even if they weren’t really a longshot. The votes could be a little skewed.January 20, 2020 at 10:38 am #1203295079
We could always preference rank the nominees. If two or more tie, take the reciprocal of their placement on each ballot (I.e. first place is worth 1, second is worth 1/2, third is 1/3, etc.) and of those tied whomever has the greater sum is the winner.January 22, 2020 at 8:51 am #1203298800
Voting ends on Jan. 26th at 1 p.m. EST! Get your votes in! (:January 23, 2020 at 11:07 am #1203300484
Reminder: 3 more days to vote for the Goldies! Voting ends on Jan. 26 at 1 p.m. EST! (:January 23, 2020 at 3:05 pm #1203301065
I like your idea, Sean, which perhaps would be more feasible if the Goldies had more participants, but EmmyLoser does make a very valid point about the first-round votes possibly being skewed. I can’t speak for everyone here who voted, but I know firsthand when filling out my ballot that those performers who I estimated had longshot chances of getting nominated I gave priority with being assigned first and second-place spots. So I agree, in hindsight, that it wouldn’t be fair to use that ranking as the basis for breaking any ties during final-round voting. I think the 24-hour runoff as EmmyLoser suggested for any ties sounds like a good plan.January 23, 2020 at 5:42 pm #1203301541
My concerns about a 24 hour runoff is it would make more sense if it were just those who did not vote for either of the ones who had tied participating in it. I’m not sure it’s very feasible. I am hoping there will simply be no ties!
