Bumping this up! So glad to see that you guys from before my time (here on Gold Derby, not soap watching!) gave Tuc Watkins the recognition he deserved! I wonder if his lack of Emmy nominations was because he didn’t submit his name or did the blue ribbon panels make a huge mistake by never nominating him? (;
It could be either, but more likely it has to do with the fact that rarely did the Academy remember “OLTL” when it came to voting. “OLTL” was often considered “the ugly stepsister of daytime soaps.” It had neither the promotion, attention or industry enthusiasm of other soaps. Even among ABC soaps; it was given the least attention and the smallest Emmy campaigns as ABC typically spent most of its time marketing/campaigning for “General Hospital” and “All My Children.”ReplyCopy URLJanuary 26, 2020 at 4:57 pm #1203309870
Maura West now has the most Goldies with 5. Suzanne Rogers joins David Canary with 4.
Maura West and Jon Lindstrom are repeat winners from last year.
General Hospital’s Drama Series win is only it’s 2nd win in the category.ReplyCopy URL

Damn. I was hoping Olivia Rose Keegan would have won for younger actress. Days has yet to win in that category, and this is the one year that she deserved it, well i will cross my fingers for the actual emmys, that she somehow pulls off a nom and win in the comnbined younger performer actegory…ugh. I wonder if they’ll at least make it a fair even number of nominees still per gender, or at least 5 nominees, since there would normally be 8 between the 2 categories.ReplyCopy URL

Refresh my memory: why were the younger acting categories not awarded in 2012?ReplyCopy URLJanuary 28, 2020 at 5:46 am #1203316265

At the time Daniel Montgomery was administering the awards and he persuaded enough people to eliminate those categories that year. It was the first year I voted and I was annoyed because I felt that Chandler Massey would win. At least Chandler was nominated for Best Actor and I voted for him in Best Actor that year. Fortunately the category was reinstated the very next year!ReplyCopy URL

Yeah, I remember being really annoyed that Daniel eliminated the younger acting categories that year. It was cool that Chandler Massey got nominated in lead actor, and I think was probably fairly competitive to win, but it still seems like we essentially robbed him of an award he clearly would have won.ReplyCopy URLApril 17, 2021 at 1:32 pm #1204205931
Bumping this up – does anyone know if we can make this a sticky, or somehow save it from the chopping block of eliminated threads on the 21st??? I have all the nominees and winners from the soap categories written down (in the early years there were other daytime categories; I don’t have those written down). If these do get the axe at least we will still have the information and maybe I would have to laboriously put them back up for all of us…ReplyCopy URLNot now
