The Beetlejuice reviews are mostly mixed to negative with the design aspects getting the most praise. Leslie kritzer’s name keeps popping up as a Featured Actress nominee and I wonder if she will get one of the five Tony nominations? I am not predicting her, is anyone else?April 26, 2019 at 4:14 am #1202867643
1. Jon Lindstrom
2. Tyler Christopher
3. Billy Flynn
4. Peter Bergman
5. Maurice Benard
I have no idea what this year’s blue ribbon panel is going to do in this category but I am rooting hard for Jon Lindstrom – he definitely has the material to be competitive again next year if he doesn’t win this year.April 25, 2019 at 5:30 pm #1202866917
Where are people WATCHING the reels? I haven’t been able to find them. I saw most of the scenes back when they first aired but reels play differently than reading about them.April 25, 2019 at 2:53 pm #1202866744
Have people actually seen the reels or are they basing it on memory? I haven’t found any of the reels on any sites. They may “play” differently than they are described.April 25, 2019 at 4:08 am #1202865888
I want Jon Lindstrom to win but worry that Maurice Benard’s submission will win it. Tyler Christopher’s second part of his submission is the best acting he has ever done and is definitely Emmy-worthy. Billy Flynn and Peter Bergman submitted really well too. I am predicting Jon Lindstrom but feeling really unsure about it.April 25, 2019 at 4:06 am #1202865884
I think Maura West is going to win, but I must say that Marci Miller and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood submitted great material as well. I will simply SCREAM if Heather Tom wins yet another Emmy – five is enough! I actually don’t like the material she submitted very much but I don’t care about Katie at all. I would need to see Laura Wright’s submission to know how it “plays”. Maura is in my opinion the best actress working on daytime these days and deserves to win for her work in 2018. (She also submitted way better than she did last year; she did not submit her very best material and lost to Eileen Davidson as a result of that mistake in my opinion).April 25, 2019 at 4:02 am #1202865882
Eric Martsolf is the only one of these who I would have nominated and I am rooting for him but I think Max Gail will win. His is my least favorite of these five though. Dominic Zamprogna’s reel sounds really good also though. This is a category where seeing how the reel “plays” would have helped – my own boredom with the character of Devon doesn’t mean that his reel isn’t really good, but I don’t really remember those scenes well, despite having seen them last summer.April 25, 2019 at 3:59 am #1202865880
I have a strong feeling that Beth Maitland is going to win and I absolutely love her varied submission! But I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Mishael Morgan or even Vernee Watson were to win. I will be happy with Kassie, Martha, Beth or Mishael, and not happy with Vernee and furious if Linsey Godfrey wins (I really dislike Sarah Horton and her portrayal of her intensely).
Beth’s reel has enormous power and variety. She submitted from quite a few different episodes and the only problem I have is that she didn’t choose the best possible ending for her reel – all of the rest of the reel is stronger in my opinion. But I think the Colleen tribute scene is enough for her to win. It’s been 34 years since she won her Emmy on her first and only other nomination.April 25, 2019 at 3:55 am #1202865866
I am rooting so hard for Garen Stitt but I wouldn’t mind at all if Lucas Adams or William Lipton would win. Reading the descriptions I could most clearly remember Oscar’s scenes the best. I would be furious if Zack Tinker were to win for his nothing performances as Fenmore on Y&R.April 25, 2019 at 3:52 am #1202865861
I think Chloe Lanier will repeat but I am rooting heavily for Eden McCoy. I really love all 5 of these actresses, they all deserve to be nominated – I do wonder though how the reels would “play”? Reading about them is not the same as experiencing them, which can alter one’s predictions drastically!April 25, 2019 at 3:50 am #1202865855
I would need to know what Y&R submitted but based on the other 3 I am going with GH winning this year.April 25, 2019 at 3:49 am #1202865851
I am predicting Kate Mansi will win a 2nd Emmy but watch out for Patricia Bethune. I don’t get why Philip Anthony-Rodriguez was nominated, his material was dull in my opinion. The description of Wayne Brady’s submission didn’t excite me at all ): If he gets a name recognition Emmy I will be disappointed (and why weren’t Hunter Tylo and Kelly Kruger nominated? Grrr!)April 25, 2019 at 3:46 am #1202865845
Both Hadestown and Tootsie got great rave reviews from a majority of the critics. While I am predicting Hadestown I do think it is a two-show race for the Tony for Best Musical.
The Ink reviews were mixed to positive and a common theme in them was that this would play better in England than in the U.S. I am predicting Tony nominations for Best Play and Best Featured Actor for Bertie Carvel.April 25, 2019 at 3:42 am #1202865841
So Nathan’s funeral and a Nurses Ball episode were featured in GH’s Drama Series submission. Kirsten Storms was featured heavily in both episodes (it’s ridiculous that she isn’t up for Supporting Actress for 2018). Mike singing “Summer Wind” with Sonny, Nina eulogizing Nathan – good solid choices. Y&R hasn’t been put up yet though, so I would say out of the 3 I have read so far GH is the strongest material-wise (how it would play in an Emmy reel though I don’t know).April 24, 2019 at 3:59 am #1202864472
For B&B I want Felicia Forrester to return and to be a major character, played by Lesli Kay.
On Days, I want Sami to return full-time.
On GH I want Alan Quartermaine and A.J. Quartermaine to be miraculously brought back from the dead!
From Y&R I have wanted for Drucilla (Victoria Rowell) to return but now that Neil is gone it’s a moot point… I am friends with Thom Bierdz, so a return of Philip Chancellor would be great!
If they could lure Jonathan Jackson back to GH I would have no problem with his returning – it might be interesting to have Jacob Young return to the role since most of us think he wasn’t very good (despite winning an Emmy) when he played the role way back in 2001-02.
