    The links are working now.

    Heinle and Egan have baity reels but are both overshadowed by their leading men. Sullivan doesn’t have to worry about that because her leading man’s been sleepwalking through his role for a decade now. Her performance is good but the reel’s overly complicated and has WAY too much exposition. That makes this a two woman race. Elliot’s fantastic and truly in a league of her own but Hendrickson’s got one hell of a baity reel and delivers a great performance. It’s really too close to call. I could easily see this going either way.

    Ranking
    1. Elliot
    2. Hendrickson
    3. Heinle
    4. Egan
    5. Sullivan

    1. Jane Elliot, GH – it’s the best reel – by far – but she has deserved to win other times and has deserved nominations (when she has submitted, which has been rare) and not been nominated. Still, she submitted what I regarded as the best acting performance by an actress in 2013 daytime – “the whole enchilada” scene, where she talks about deserving true love and wanting to be first. Tony Geary matches her but does not outshine her.  What I love so much about this actress is how she is always great REGARDLESS of whether the writing is there or not. I need for Jane Elliot to win! If she wins, I will be ecstatic!

    2. Kelly Sullivan, GH – she’s wonderful in her reel, quite moving. I still don’t understand why they fired her. Her Connie/Kate was complex and always interesting. Her reel was emotional and riveting. I couldn’t keep my eyes off of her. She certainly has the most emotionally vulnerable reel.

    3. Melissa Claire Egan, Y&R – not a big Chelsea fan, but her scenes were nice and solid. Nothing more than that for me. This is her fifth nomination in a row, but I’m not sure that matters? She definitely outshines her acting partner in her reel.

    4. Amelia Heinle, Y&R – she has definitely improved as an actress and I remember at the time thinking she outacted Elizabeth Hendrickson during the Delia’s death story, but I just don’t care about this character, that’s all.

    5. Elizabeth Hendrickson, Y&R – all I can say is I remember very distinctly when these scenes in her Emmy reel played that I thought her acting was off and not very good at all. It’s “Emmy bait” material, yes, but I felt disconnected from her acting choices. I hear that lots of people think she will win but it will be for the writing (the story) and not for her acting imo.

    So, I predict: Jane Elliot will win her second Emmy, 33 years after her first Emmy! (:

    1: Jane Elliott: Fantastic reel. It was real hardcore acting and I was riveted with her and Geary. Just excellent stuff this woman is a phenom actress.

    2: Melissa Claire Egan: Great reel from her. It was very good acting and built up in a great arc. I have always loved Egan she has nominated four times before and I see why she picked a fantastic reel. Very good with Burton. Smart she chose a non Delia episode to differentiate from the competition.

    3: Kelly Sullivan: she’s a dark horse she had the shortest reel but she drew me in utterly fascinating to watch.

    4: Amelia Heinle: she was good with emotion and more subtle then Hendrickson. Kind of flat though she doesn’t wow I’m this reel. She’s very good but again stiff competition

    5: Elizabeth Hendrickson: totally disagree with her having top reel. Huge crying and histrionics in this reel. It tells the story but she didn’t rivet me. Go watch Sarah Browns 2000 episode when she lost the baby. I felt a lot of screeching here not great acting.

    1) 
    Elliot / Hendrickson


    2) 
    Melissa Claire Egan


    3) 
    Amelia Heinle


    4) 
    Kelly Sullivan


    It’s
    very interesting to see the wide opinions in this category, especially when it
    comes to Hendrickson.  For me, it comes down to Elliot and Hendrickson,
    who I just couldn’t decide between.  This is one category where I wouldn’t
    mind a tie.  I think Jane might ultimately win, just because her reel is
    more subtle, but still equally as powerful as Hendrickson’s.  I get what
    some said above as to Hendrickson, because I did notice moments where it was a
    little over the top, but I was just completely invested in the story and her
    performance.  I was fine with her acting choices, especially considering
    she just found out that her child died as the reel begins, so to me, she hit
    all of the right emotions for that particular situation.  MCE had a very
    solid reel as well.  She showed a wide variety of emotion and just
    captivated me.  I honestly wouldn’t be upset if she won.  She’s
    always the bridesmaid and never the bride in this category!  I was really
    impressed with Amelia.  She had some great standout moments with Melissa
    Ordway in the beginning, but then it turned one note and kind of turned into a
    reel for Billy Miller after that, but she was overall very solid.  I honestly wouldn’t count out any of the
    above four, as all of their reels were very impressive.  As for Kelly, I
    thought she was fine, I just don’t think it will be enough when the other reels
    are so good.  Her reel was actually the most subtle, which surprised me,
    seeing as the character of Connie was always pretty over the top, and she had
    some really nice, emotional moments, but I don’t think she has a shot.

    All of these reels were just OK to me..I’ve heard all the HYPE about Jane Elliot, and when i saw the episode, i was like ” was that it” she was good, but nothing scremed EMMY to me..Truthfully, i will be happy with any of them winning *shrugs*

    A weird category. Not sure which way I’ll ultimately land.

    I think a “Young and Restless” woman will win, but I’m not exactly sure which, and I’m not exactly sure why. Elizabeth Hendrickson has the most emotional scenes, but they had the poor woman screaming through the whole thing. I can hardly blame her given her character’s circumstances, and she does it well, but she’s hitting the same note for the whole reel: wailing, to the degree that anger and sadness feel more or less the same.

    I liked Amelia Heinle‘s performance better. She has more range between the numbness of grief and her big impact moment blaming herself for the accident, and while she yields the floor to Billy Miller midway through her reactions to him are still quite emotional. But she and Hendrickson submitted the exact same storyline; heck the actors are wearing the same clothes in both reels. It seems almost strange to vote for the episode about the stepmother’s grief instead of the main-even episode about the mother’s loss. I give the slight edge to Hendrickson, but I’d probably vote for Heinle, so who knows?

    I liked Jane Elliot, but I had expected more from what I’d heard about her reel. She has a real shot, but we’re waiting for half her reel just for the writers to get to the point (Tracy wants true love), and though she’s very moving, it felt somewhat minor compared to the acting challenges of the other submissions.

    Melissa Claire Egan is good. The nomination is deserved, but the episode serves Steve Burton better than her.

    I’m not sure I could vote for Kelly Sullivan. Excellent actress, but the story is incoherent out of context and it’s impossible to know what she’s even acting about: two car accidents, a split personality, a rape, a dead child, an ended marriage, a couple more dead children, a murder trial, a split personality’s romance with Sonny — I had to watch this episode twice, then read the synopsis, and still I couldn’t follow it. It’s the first reel this year I couldn’t even get the gist of on its own. I’m not sure if voters should hold that against a good performance, but it’s hard to judge a performance if the storytelling is a mess.

    My rankings for now:

    1. Elizabeth Hendrickson
    2. Amelia Heinle
    3. Jane Elliot
    4. Melissa Claire Egan
    5. Kelly Sullivan

    EH reel is very very baity.  JE is a master and MCE also had a VERY strong submission.  My rankings:

    1.) Jane Elliot (GH)
    2.) Melissa Claire Egan (Y&R)
    3.) Amelia Heinle / Elizabeth Hendrickson (Y&R) (tie)
    5.) Kelly Sullivan (GH)

    I think Jane Elliot will win the Emmy for the following reasons:

    1.) She is WAY WAY overdue
    2.) She is a well respected and regarded vet.
    3.) Her reel is not baity, but VERY effective.
    4.) The Y&R girls all have strong baity material, that is more likey to result in vote-splitting.  There is not really a weak submission here from Y&R and with 3 woman nominated, support will be split between all 3.
    5.) Kelly Sullivan is a non factor…her reel is easily the worst and I don’t see her sucking too much support away from Jane Elliot.

    With all that being said… would really love seeing Amelia Heinle win the Emmy or Elizabeth Hendrickson…both have proven in past performances how good they are.  MCE

    Looking at the reels alone, this looks like a battle between Elliot and Hendrickson. Sullivan’s reel requires more info to understand context (just who is Kate is never clear to an unfamiliar judge), and the Y&R actresses (Egan and Heinlie) are CLEARLY “outacted” by their onscreen counterparts (Steve Burton and Billy Miller, respectively).

    Between Elliot and Hendrickson in my eyes.

    I see alot of fake and insincere crying in these soap reels.  But for people who say Hendrickson was over the top?  I thought she perfectly captured the helpless hysterical grief you feel during a tragedy.  As someone who has been there before, I had chills.

    I don’t think voters have ever really been swayed by overdue factor. Susan Lucci lost for 19 years, and she didn’t have a previous win like Elliot does.

    Vote splitting probably won’t hurt Elliot any more than the Y&R women. With nominees and winners decided in the same round, “GH” and “Y&R” would be equally succeptible, since they split the pre-nominations down the middle with 5 actresses each.

    I actually thought Heinle was better than Miller in her reel. He’s usually great, but his voice got kinda squeaky at a certain point.

    I am concerned about this one round of voting thing. I feel very strongly there needs to be TWO rounds of voting; just like the dankies and goldies, where you get a chance to switch your vote. I think this is why we are getting all these repeat winners over & over again lately.

    As for Jane Elliot: I think part of the problem is that for those of us who have watched her day after day, we know that she delivers ALL THE TIME and this particular Emmy reel scene was a culmination of tremendous story for her. I can understand how someone who doesn’t know Tracy’s history with Luke might not understand it, but are the panelists really that out of the loop? Do they really not ever watch the soaps? That seems odd to me and I don’t quite believe it is as widespread as others seem to think. I do wish the voters WOULD think historically, instead of just rubber stamping the same ones over and over.
