    Erin Sanders from Y&R? Really?

    I totally think KA and BU from OLTL are deserving. KA really impressed me with her work when she went into labor and then found out her baby “died.”

    That child’s expression was just too painful to watch and now they have gone and nominated her. For What? Being unable to act – i know it is unrealistic to even expect a young actor to act but still HER. Just plain wrong and idiotic.

    Bravo to the OLTL actors, which is the only show that I watch. I hope OLTL will start showing interaction between Jack Manning, Shane Morasco and Jamie Vega since they all seem to be in the same age group the way they do with the older teens.

    I know this will sound like an echo, but…Erin Sanders?!! Seriously? It’s obvious that no one ever actually watched Y&R because they would have seen that she was so awful that she was replaced. I hope both the Alderson siblings win in their respective catregories because they are truly talented young actors.

    Both little girls who were Abby on Y&R were good, altough this SORASed one was on for maybe 2 days in 2008. And the girl who played Hope on B&B. And Meredith Hagner, who is Liberty on ATWT. Sevreal actresses I’d place on that list befre Erin, thank you.

    ERIN SANDERS! Why don’t you nominate Vanessa Morano and make my day! That girl struggling to say her lines gets it, but Meredith Hagner (Liberty, ATWT) doesn’t. ARRG!!!!!!!!!

    Anywho congrats to the other nominees.

    Meredith Hagner is 21 years old. I don’t know the rules of these awards, but maybe she’s too old?

    ETA: Just read the rules on their website. The awards are for actors/actresses under the age of 18.
