    Beverlee McKinsey for Alex verbally destroying Roger for his affair with Mindy

    Kate Collins for Natalie and Janet and the well

    Louise Sorel for Vivian burying Carly alive and for Augusta on SB

    Deidre Hall for Marlena’s affair and the scenes where Kristen confronted Marlena (I think Eileen won her Emmy for these scenes) over John and I believe Brady

    Yes, those fantastic scenes did win Eileen Davidson her DAYS Emmy. It was a really phenomenal run of I believe three episodes where things unfolded with Kristen and John and Kristen decided she’d rather be with Brady than seduce John and get revenge, only to find Marlena had convinced Brady not to marry Kristen anyway. I thought the writing of that story was so smart, because John and Kristen both went into it with eyes open: John was willing to betray Marlena to prove to Brady that Kristen was using him, and Kristen was willing to lose Brady to hurt Marlena by proving she still had a hold over John. Great stuff.

    Also, I really thought Eileen Davidson should have been a shoo-in for a nomination and maybe even a win in 2018 (for 2017) supporting actress for her return as Susan in the story of Will turning up alive. The episode where she had to face what she’d done in making Will believe he was EJ was spectacular, very emotional and very grounded (something you’d never say about Susan now). But since Eileen ended up winning lead actress that year for Y&R, I can’t complain.

    Christine Tudor was brilliant as Gwyneth during the Loving serial killer storyline. The scenes when she revealed to Steffy that she was the killer should’ve landed her a nomination.

    I can’t wrap my mind around the fact that OLTL didn’t even get a Drama Series nomination throughout the whole 90s
    Especially the 94 95 era when it was arguably the best daytime soap on television

    One Life to Live had a peculiar experience.

    It set the record for the most lead actress wins. It won in lead actor twice. In 1992, it established having won in supporting actor. In 1994, it took care of winning supporting actress and younger actor. By 1983, it won directing more than any other soap—three times—until it was overtaken by The Young and the Restless. By 1994, it had won its second Emmy for writing.

    Despite its key wins, OLTL through the 1990s was nominated for outstanding drama series only twice—in 1973 and 1983. It did not get nominated again, for its third try at the best series Emmy, until 2000.

    The fact that OLTL finally won the top Emmy, in 2002, felt like a miracle.

    I always thought Victoria Rowell (Dru; Y&R) should have at least one Emmy. She stole every scene she was in and was fun to watch.

    very interesting

    OLTL was on for 43 years only managed 4 nominations and 1 win compare that to Santa Barbara which was on for 9 years, and got 4 nominations and 3 wins

    OLTL never had luck in the acting categories except best actress

    Al Freeman Jr. and Robert Woods – the only lead actor winners

    Roger Howarth the only best young actor winner

    Thom Christopher the only best supporting actor winner

    Susan Haskell the only best supporting actress winner

    OLTL never won in the best young actress category
