    Question…If you were a Daytime Emmy voter, could you be a fair voter? Could you vote based off what is on the reels and not favortism? Could you vore for a actor who might not be on your favorite show? I would truly like your most honest answers.

    I’ll go first….of course I can be a fair Emmy voter. I would watch each reel and after I watched each reel I would analyze each reel then I would decide who had the best out of 5 or 6 reels (depending on if there was a tie in the first round voting). When they did allow the fans to see the reels I always picked the reel that wasn’t over the top and the reel that had great range. Over the top reels always seem to lose especially with a lot of screaming and screeching. A lot of people don’t understand that a simple reel is best. I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed AZ, NLG, LW, and MWs reels these past few years, but in all honesty their reels were either over the top or it had nonsense in it. I can’t base my winner off whether I like a nominee or a show. It wouldn’t be fair.

    I believe I could be fair for the most part, though I can’t claim I’d be impartial by show or performer. If I believe someone isn’t that great of an actor, it’s extremely unlikely any reel they submit could convince they deserve a win. I don’t know if that’s unfair per se, though. It’s not like I’m forming opinions based on gossip. My feelings on actors are based on watching them do their job. I wouldn’t hold a person’s personal behavior against them when judging their work, though. I could be impartial about people who have said or supported things I completely disagree with on social media. There are always performers that I’m more invested in than others, but that doesn’t make me favor them necessarily. Sometimes there’s a year when I’m really rooting for someone, but then it just makes it more of a disappointment if I see the reels and theirs doesn’t stack up to the competition. Then there’s the matter of having knowledge of the rest of the eligibility period outside of what’s on a reel. I watched DAYS and GH for all of 2020 and B&B for a couple of stints. I couldn’t just dismiss that knowledge, so if I saw a reel of a strong episode that was just a single bright spot in a bad storyline, I couldn’t pretend not to know that. But I think that’s fair.

    I’m sure many a voter (as I certainly would) go into this process with the intention of judging reels as objectively as possible. The truth of the matter is, though, there’s always going to be some degree of subjectivity intrinsic to the task because acting is an art form, and as a judge one is essentially evaluating a work of art. Naturally, opinions are going to vary. What one judge views as a really great performance might be a complete non-starter for another. Also, for me personally, so much of how I look at a performance hinges on the writing. If an actor is able to navigate challenging material and transcend what’s written on the page, giving me all the feels, that’s an undeniable winning combination.
