Definitely agree about NLG’s work and her lead placement. Drunk Alexis is a hoot and has some of the best one-liners on television.
Nancy Lee Grahn as Alexis Davis (GH)
Alexis is diagnosed with Osteoporosis.
Alexis freaks out on Valentin and tells Sam about her diagnosis.
Alexis attends Neil’s memorial. Neil’s brother confronts her and blames her for Neil’s death.
Alexis and Ned get drunk and reminisce about their engagement.
Alexis and Ned wake up together and discover they cheated on Olivia the night before.
Sam confronts Alexis about falling off the wagon.October 17, 2020 at 5:23 pm #1203784977
I thought Brown was totally wrong for this. John Spencer played Leo as cranky and crotchety but with an undertone of genuine decency and affection. I saw none of that in SKB’s Leo. Brown played Leo as smooth, suave and aloof. Plus he’s far too young to play around the same age as Martin Sheen.
All the guests were great though. Loved seeing CJ’s assistant and the reporters at the press briefing. Loved seeing Ed & Larry. Loved Ainsley Hayes as narrator. And Josh & Donna still give me all the feels. Too bad they couldn’t find a way to fit in Stockard Channing.September 1, 2020 at 7:31 pm #1203681273
August 31st & September 1st 2020.
Nancy Lee Grahn as Alexis Davis (GH)
Alexis decides to start a relationship with Neil. They sleep together. The next morning, she finds him dead in her bed, apparently of a heart attack.June 26, 2020 at 7:04 pm #1203554004
They did a good job spreading the wealth this year. Series, Writing & Directing went to three different shows.
And every show won an acting award. And three first time acting winners.
B&B won lead actress two years in a row (for the third time)
I only got 2 out of 6 acting categories right (Dismal predictions again!)June 26, 2020 at 6:57 pm #1203553980
Heather Tom is now tied with Erika Slezak for the actress with the most Daytime Emmys. Slezak still has the most Lead Actress Emmys (6 to Tom’s 3).June 26, 2020 at 6:47 pm #1203553925
Finally! Jason Thompson is an Emmy winner.June 26, 2020 at 5:28 pm #1203553725
I loved the signs in Keegan’s speech. Really cute!June 26, 2020 at 3:59 pm #1203553603

I remember the primetime episode of OLTL where Todd Manning was wearing a bomb and holding half of Llanview hostage until Rachel (Nora & Hank’s daughter) confessed to killing Georgie (a crazy woman trying to break up Nora & Bo). EPIC! I miss those.June 14, 2020 at 3:39 pm #1203532859
Lang was fine but I can only see her winning as a sentimental choice because she’s never won before. Not much to this clip.
Tom was much more subdued than usual but I actually missed the fireworks. Fine but not Emmy-worthy.
I didn’t realize Alex was on GH last year. We know they like Hughes because she’s already won and is almost always nominated when she submits. And the Emmys love a dual role. But the clip felt oddly hollow. It was a little better than Lindstrom’s evil twin clip but not much. Hughes is always great but I can’t see her winning a second Emmy with this.
Apparently Zucker is not playing Nicole in this clip but is instead playing Kristen pretending to be Nicole. There’s no way of knowing that based on this clip though. It plays as a pretty straightforward scene of a mother finding out her child is dead. It builds nicely and Zucker is absolutely phenomenal by the end.
West is downright chilling as a woman threatening to murder her daughter’s killer. Many users here feel West is overrated and usually hams it up in her reels but I thought the high emotions on display fit this extreme situation perfectly. I’m on board for Emmy # 4!
(As a disclaimer, I have the odd distinction of being completely wrong about this category. I ranked JMW, Davidson (Y&R), Tognoni & Evans dead last in the years they won this category. Which means KKL is probably taking the big prize home!)June 14, 2020 at 3:29 pm #1203532836
In 95, she submitted Mona’s death. Slezak won for Sloan’s death/Viki finding out her father raped her.
In 96, she submitted Erica’s Woman of Year speech. Slezak won for Viki discovering and admitting she murdered her father.
In 97, she submitted Erica returning the baby to Maria. Walton won.
In 99, she won for Bianca’s eating disorder intervention.
I have no clue what she submitted for her other nominations.June 13, 2020 at 1:17 pm #1203531408
Kapneck was bland.
Parise and Stause were fine but not Emmy worthy.
I think it’ll come down to the two former AMCer’s. Knight is an Emmy fave and was good in his clip but I was most impressed by LaRue’s performance.June 12, 2020 at 8:39 am #1203529704
Grossman’s clip was far too much yelling from him (& Braeden). Grossman didn’t bring any emotion or nuance to it. He could be a great actor but his clip wasn’t a good showcase for him.
Kurth is one of my favorite daytime actors but his clip is boring.
Telfer is perfectly fine but the material isn’t all that exciting or challenging.
I don’t usually care for the actor and I can’t stand the character, but Stuart was really good in his clip. He was menacing with Lulu and vengeful with Laura. He emoted like a champ throughout.
James was outstanding delivering a heartfelt eulogy for his father.
Massey was fantastic in an emotionally charged breakup scene.
I think Massey will take it in the end but I wouldn’t be shocked to see Stuart or James win. Definitely the most competitive acting category so far.
(It’s a real shame Smith wasn’t nominated; I’d have ranked him above every nominee except Massey based on his performance in Massey’s clip.)
