why didn’t Days submit the aftermath of Daniel’s accident and death? Writing and especially the acting were both the best all year round.April 18, 2017 at 3:06 pm #1202070077
Four of the five were great. I expected Grahn to have a killer reel, but it was too disjointed for me. She just doesn’t generally submit good reel and this was an example of that to me. Wright was brilliant in her arc and her scene selections. Loved Walton, Tom and Tognoni and ranking them 2-3-4 was my most difficult choice. Ranking Wright first was my clear choice.
Interesting to see the different takes on this, as with the actual voters, it may come down to not who got the most first-place votes, but the other rankings, which could be all over the place, may decide the ultimate winner.

Craig blew me away and the ending of Fode and the middle of Richmond’s were EMmy worthy, but for me, Craig clearly is my pick.

I was torn between Horsford, Haiduk and Hughes, whose reel played out better to me than the rest of you. When comparing breakdowns, I thought Haiduk was way better than Mansi and, as for Sullivan, she had like 30 seconds of brilliance and have no clue why she didn’t submit an extra episode.

I ranked the reels exactly the same way as DML Interesting to read everyone’s varying opinions, though.March 31, 2017 at 7:06 am #1202051509
Maura West did not submit.
My quick take on Lead Actress is that, based on storyline, NLG would be the favorite to win, but it is a STACKED category and anything could happen. Grahn, in the past, has not always submitted wisely and Walton generally does. While, technically not lead, she does have the material to win following Billy’s accident, if that is the material she submitted. Remember in 97, she scored a huge upset over Genie Francis. I see Wright as a possible threat, too, and Tognoni had great stuff. Will really come down to what they submitted.
To me, Mary Beth Evans wasn’t really lead in last year’s race, but still submitted wisely and captured the Emmy. She had much stronger material this past season and didn’t get nodded. Go Figure.
I’d have Bergman as the favorite in Lead, but something tells me that Billy Flynn may score a Tyler Christopher-type upset win.
It all comes down to what they submitted and can’t wait to view the reels.March 3, 2017 at 9:02 am #1202028682
Yes, Hubbard should have won in either 87 or 88 – or both – tho many see her work as over the top, which was exactly the character she was playing.
Zenk’s reel in 01 was tremendous, how she or West, lost to Kay still mystifies me. And her final lead actress reel was, to, me the stuff that Emmys are made of.March 3, 2017 at 8:49 am #1202028674
I can’t rank till I see what they submit. Like, Jess Walton, for example. I think she should have gone supporting. However, she has a tremendous reel if she goes with when they all thought Billy was going to die. Not lead, however, voters don’t necessarily know that. Like Mary Beth, last year, her material really wasn’t lead to me, yet she won. This year, I think she has much more lead material than last.March 26, 2016 at 7:40 am #601691
Want to watch all the reels before voting, but am leaning toward Hughes first then DePaiva based on what they submitted.
Pre-watching reel ballot

Think these are hard to predict until I’ve seen what they submitted.
GH’s 52nd anniversary should be enough for the win, but TPTB are notorious for submitting bad and who knows what second reel might be.
Will’s death would be a good directing episode and maybe overall best series one, too, but is it enough?
Y&R and JFP always know how to submit, so wouldn’t rule them out.
B&B and Maya’s reveal is pure, classic soap,. would voters go for that?
Of course, who knows what they actually submitted.
Feel a tie coming on in this category for some reason.March 26, 2016 at 7:25 am #601685
Obviously, Mosely not even being pre-nommed is the major snub, but for me Braeden not getting a nomination is ther biggest snub of the actual noms.
ACTOR – Geary will probably win, and not saying he doesn’t deserve it, but is it wrong for me to hope their is a backlash toward him because of his exit comments and comments about Luke & Laura and his treatment of Francis?
Would say Braeden should have gotten Christopher’s slot, and LeBlanc wasn’t a surprise, cuz he had the reel and early storyline before being set to soap Siberia.
ACTRESS – Same for Bregman, but wish she had gone supporting. Thought Egan gave the most consistent performance of the year, but it’s all about the reels. See my comments on the what they submitted thread regarding West and DePaiva. Not surprised Tognoni not in it this year, but wait till next year. Tho Evans was also a surprise, am glad for her and also think she’s a real contender….next year.,
SUPPORTING ACTRESS – So glad Bell is in it and McCay finally gets a nomination in a category she is appropriate for. Think this is the most well-rounded category, tho am leaning toward Bell.
SUPPORTING ACTOR – Not any real surprises here.
YOUNGER ACTRESS – Did think Banas would get in, but not sure who she would have replaced. King had an overall weak year, but definitely has the reels. Hope she submitted the funeral episode.
YOUNGER ACTOR – Thought Moss would be in there, but other than that worthy nominees.
Overall, not that much to complain about and certainly nothing to complain about compared to other years.March 26, 2016 at 7:04 am #601684
Hmm. Not thinking either Maura nor Kassie submitted their best material. Kassie should have submitted confrontation with Jenn or the day she found out Paige died to go along with one of the others. And definitely, Maura should have submitted the episode confronting Sonny at the trial. Leaning toward Finola now for the win.April 22, 2015 at 10:32 am #428531
Having watched the reels totally changed my opinion.
1. GINA TOGNONI – Yes, tiotally believe she is miscast – or maybe not written properly – as Phyllis, but her reel impressed me beyond belief. Great range.
2. MAURA WEST – Could easily win and was a tossup, but think she had better reels. Still, she is Maura West and I adore her.
3. LAURA WRIGHT – Spoiler. Former Emmy winner and strong reel.
4. ALISON SWEENEY – Who I really want to win, but long reel and up against three heavy hitters.
5. PEGGY McCAY – Good reel, but it is a supporting reel.May 23, 2014 at 5:11 pm #426800
I agree with Daniel on Miller’s reel. Thought I was the only one. keep going back and forth on this one, I actually have problems with all the reels, not one stands out above the rest, tho Bergman’s is the only one I cried watching, so going with him.
