BREAKING NEWS: Eric Braeden and Trevor St. John Didn't Make Emmy Pre-Nominations!





As if we needed more proof of what a dismal joke the Daytime Emmy Awards have become, the two best leading men in daytime this past season, Eric Braeden (Victor, The Young and the Restless) and Trevor St. John (Todd, One Life to Live), were both left off the list of Emmy Pre-Nominations, according to TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco. Someone remind me why we still bother?  Branco managed to get his hands on the Pre-Noms for both OLTL and Y&R, Click here to see what else he found out.

What really disgusts me even more: Chapman over Melody Thomas Scott? Heinle over Hendrickson? And that Kahlil is even on the list should be reason enough why it is at least on good thing we don't have to see it on the screen this year.

I just wish i was shocked by this, this is just what's become 'normal' if you are a amazing actor you will get snubbed -.-.

The Daytime Emmy's wonder why nobody wants to air their show and why the numbers go down every year? Hmmm...maybe because this system is a joke! Some of these actors that should be winning this award can't even get on the PRE-nomination list...this is ridiculous!

Judith Chapman over Melody Scott Thomas? Are you kidding me? Then you have hair models Christel Khalil, Bryton McClure and Amelia Heinle who everyone knows will somehow make it to the final nomination list. I refuse to watch the Emmy's this year!

I with you all, thats why the Emmys is a joke and with theses noms, some was deserving, but others was not. I just do not seeing the industry surviving more than five years.

Didn't TSJ say in his interview that he did not submit his name for the Emmy pre-noms? I may not be remembering that right, but I thought that is what he said.

There is no accounting for taste or sanity in the daytime emmy system. I mean seriously Michael Easton, Antonio Sabato Jr emotes better than he does.

I saw Nelson's news and a chick screamed when she saw the pre-noms. Judith got over on MELODY!? That is highway robbery!!!! Don't get me started on Amelia and Christel.. At least it wasn't Vail yet again or Tammin! I think I need a Xanax.

Amelia? Adrianne?
I like OLTL lineup and I am not suprised by Y&R's lineup.

Michael Easton, with his total of two facial expressions, over Trevor St. John? Give me a break.

I can't believe Robin S wasnt nom. for her work this year as Dorian Lord! The BE Take-Over & the the entire Langston storyline.... that woman has been on her game!!!! COME ON FOLKS

I think TSJ not getting them nom from his cast is just more proof that he may be leaving and the cast is annoyed with him.

I believe TSJ said he wasn't submitting himself in his interview with Nelson.

What the hell did Michael Easton character do. But brood and screw Blair. TSJ deserved that nomination.

I'm actually very satisfied with the OLTL pre-noms...especially lead actress. It is about time for Kassie to get a nomination. Hopefully, she'll get the "real" nomination (I'm sure Robin Strasser is also doing everything that she can to make it happen!). Robin could care less about being nominated and this wasn't Slezak's year.

I am so glad Christel Khalil was recognized. She worked her scenes with the pregnancy s/l and the miscarriage! Not to mention she did a great job when Drucilla died. She deserves this big time!

The fact that Melody Thomas Scott, Eric Braeden and Trevor St. John did not receive a pre-nomination and will, therefore, not be on the final Emmy ballot is blasphemous. Truly BLASPHEMOUS. And oh so very disappointing. Whatever will become of this industry that we all appear to love far more than the people who actually work in it?

I looked back at Nelson's interview, and TSJ said that he has not put his name in for Emmy consideration the past couple of years because he thinks the system is screwed up. So in all likelihood he did not this year, either. So I don't think anybody should read too much in his non-nomination.

I'm with someone else who said I'm pretty happy with the prenoms this year. There are a couple of "WTFs?!" like ME's prenom. He seems like a nice guy, but his character doesn't emote--there's nothing to "ACT." But I think Bree Williamson, Kathy Brier, and Kristin Alderson did great work this year. I wish Robin Strasser was nominated, but she might not have participated either. She did do a great job, though, with the BE takeover and when she was talking to Mel after that car crash.

I agree with half of the Y&R pre-noms.
The only people missing are Eric Braeden who I think deserves a pre-nom this year over Peter Bergman.

Judith Chapmen should be in the supporting and replace Amelia Heinle. Melody Thomas Scott should then be in the best actress category..

Greg Rickart should replace Michael Graz. and Jess Walton(if considered for supporting) should replace Adrianne Franz.

The younger pre-noms are fine imo. Isn't the cut off age 25? There's not much to work with if thats the case.

Christel Khalil deserved her pre-nom considering her pregnancy/miscarriage/psychloe storyline.

The 2nd nom is a toss up for me between Vail and Emily.

What other young male is there besides Bryton and the guy who plays Noah? So yeah give the pre-nom to Bryton.

I hash out the bad and now the good.
Susan Haskell placement will hopefully Lead to a nom. She could've done the easy thing and gone Supporting, but she stepped up and that should be rewarded w/a nom.

I'm so glad the Emmys won't be televised because watching these head scratchers have the distinction of being nominated would only cause me to get gully and chuck my remote at my TV. Its a recession and I ain't in the market for no new TV!

Everything that everyone else has said but LOUDER! JUDITH "SCREAMER" CHAPMAN OVER MELODY THOMAS SCOTT! WTF??! NO ERIC BRAEDEN? NO ELIZABETH HENDRICKSON? AMELIE HEINLE. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! WE'VE BEEN PUNKED, RIGHT?

MICHAEL EASTON? NO TREVOR ST. JOHN? BREE "I HAVE 3 PERSONALITIES BY THE WAY I DO MY HAIR" WILLIAMSON? NO ERIKA SLEZAK? KASSIE DE PAIVA WAS GOOD BUT NOT ERIKA GOOD.

And others are right, this is why no one gives a crap to air the show. It does not reward deserving talent? It rewards over-acting and pretty people! Christel Khalil is pathetically boring and has given Lily no personality. Something is rotten in Soapville because these show nominated pre-noms must be so politically insider based and chosen by owners, producers, corporate suits. I am sickened. These are the 2 best shows on air. If they cannot come up with decent pre-noms, who are the other horror soaps going to nominate. I swear if Molly Burnett shows up on DOOL's pre-nom list then I won't watch the awards even if they do air somewhere.

Fans should get to pick the pre-noms and the actors should get to vote on who wins!

Just kidding! I think there are a lot of good actors who are on the pre-nom list. Sure, you scratch your head at some..but overall, its a pretty good list.

I gave up on DayTime Emmys

A LOoooNG TIME AGO

It is political always has been imo
It is a travesty, a sham....
"Most" of

DayTime is a political orchestrated event...depending if you are a pet eg if you are not a Frons poodle you will not get a storyline, airtime or anything else that's it period..you will not get an emmy reel because he simply will not give you a storyline to get one, its that's simple. Good actors he holds back so his poodles will be up front center.

I simply do not agree with the "politics" of this genre and it hinders the drama for me because I know politics supercedes good story. Y&R had no trouble holding Victoria Rowell hostage to an emmy nom so I think if its not going to be fair ...

why bother with it.

Trevor St. John and Eric Braeden were riveting this year. It would have been tough to decide between them, though I would have given the edge to St. John. The Daytime Emmys were rendered meaningless years ago. Remember the year that ATWT nearly got every single acting nomination? The pre-nomination system has got to come to an end next year. Please assemble a real expert panel of soap industry people, fans, and soap media who will actually come to this from a viewer perspective. In other words, let people who actually watch the shows judge this stuff or OMG Anthony Geary will get up there again, which is total bullshit.

Nelson confirmed that Eric did put his name up for consideration.
All I can say is that WHAT THE FUG.
