    ^and last year’s winner, Steve Burton for Y&R…

    I am predicting Chandler Massey, and will be very surprised if he doesn’t win. So long as it doesn’t go to either of the GH actors I will be happy…

    As long as it’s Greg Vaughan or Chandler Massey I will be happy as well. Greg Rikaart’s second scenes sealed his fate. Anthony Montgomery shouldn’t have put that scene with Franco in his reel. And Wally Kurth just didn’t do anything for me at all. He should have submitted himself for Days of Our Lives.

    The reels for Supporting Actor are very good. I am more interested in this category than in Lead Actor.

    Wally Kurth is a pro who’s enjoyable on both GH and Days. His reel is very pleasing, but probably not enough to win.

    Anthony Montgomery’s reel is more dramatic and more of a contender. However, it lacks the power of the reels from the Days gentlemen.

    Greg Rikaart is a powerhouse actor. But his reel is rather brief and the scenes do not play so well out of context.

    Greg Vaughan’s reel is just lovely. His acting really ramps up the intensity.

    But none can top Chandler Massey’s reel. For starters, the reel is well-developed with a lot of substance. We get to see Will in various situations interacting with many different characters. The reel highlights Massey’s range and the complexity of his acting choices. I see this as a win, although I would not rule out Vaughan.

    My Rank:

    1. Chandler Massey

    2. Greg Vaughan

    3. Greg Rikaart

    4. Anthony Montgomery

    5. Wally Kurth

    I preferred Greg Vaughan’s reel over Chandler Massey’s. Anthony Montgomery’s came close to their reels, but not quite there. I’ll go with Greg Vaughan for the win, but I won’t be surprised if Chandler Massey takes it.

    1. Anthony Montgomery

    The last five minutes plus of this reel was an outstanding dramatic performance. He has that emotional outpouring moment starting at the eight minute mark that was the most poignant stretch of any of the reels. It screams out…Emmy award! I loved the way it all built up in Andre as he told the story and the way he released those feelings to Anna with those tears dropping. I think that his tape ended on the strongest note and leaves the best lasting impression. Look at him alone in that sad final shot. You wanna give the man a hug. Not only did his character come off the most sympathetic, but the actor was really able to sustain the crying. I don’t see the lesser middle part hurting him too much (it shows him in doctor mode for three to four minutes) and it won’t take away from what was a good start and great finish to his reel. The first two minutes and last five minutes plus is a winning showcase for him. If they are looking for heartbreaking, he is the man that delivers it the most.

    2. Greg Vaughan

    He was exceptional in the first six minutes plus and makes the strongest early impression with killer intensity. I don’t think his reel had much of a lull point and his story was the easiest to follow from my top three. This was probably the best reel from start to finish to be honest, but it lacked that one bigger “OMG” scenes of my predicted winner in this category. Voters tend to flock to those types of scenes and that man had a more money stretch. In a perfect world, Vaughan and Montgomery would tie. They had the best reels start to finish.

    3. Chandler Massey

    This emmy darling could play spoiler to the two first time nominees above since he’s back in the race after three years. Nobody has the more flashy explosive moment and he was outstanding for three minutes in the middle part. My problem is that it’s a very long reel and it does drag for extended periods to near boredom. Cutting about six minutes off this near twenty minute reel would’ve helped a lot. I wouldn’t watch it a second time for that very reason, but it has that fireworks display scene when Will raged at Sami, and that is certain to get lots of votes. The longer reels have been losing out to the shorter ones in the last four years. Will this continue?

    4. Wally Kurth

    This is a solid diverse reel that is a welcomed break from all the heavy angst. I can understand why he got nominated and it’s a really good blend of well acted scenes. Kurth is allowed to show several different sides to Ned in just under eleven minutes. Romance. Family. Business. He is never short on charm or emotion in his reel. This does lack the type of bigger drama that win emmy awards, but it’s more than worthy of a darkhorse pick. Probably won’t win….but very enjoyable.

    5. Greg Rikaart

    This reel just never got off the ground for me when you stack it up to the other four. I don’t only think this was much too short, but he left out his best scenes from last year. The discovery that he was Bella’s father and after Chloe ditched him at the altar were the high points for Rikaart. But, I am glad to see him get a final nomination after 15 years of strong performances on Y&R.
