36th Annual Daytime Emmy Nomination Snubs





USA TODAY's Daytime Emmy nomination headline reads "Daytime Emmys Honor Sesame Street, Snub The View." In the article they bring up how once again Susan Lucci was snubbed and The View was "overlooked" as best talk show nominee this year. Ironically, the majority of this year's nominations are a joke. Certainly some snubs aren't a surprise. We know from the Daytime Emmy Prenominations that Melody Thomas Scott and Trevor St. John didn't even make the prenom list on their respective shows. However, there are certainly snubs among those who did make prenomination list. Kristen Alderson, Brandon Buddy and Arianne Zucker come immediately to mind. One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless were both snubbed, that is clear to almost anyone who actually watched them in 2009. One blessing - in this era of opposite thinking - Molly Burnett wasn't nominated. Had that happened both hell and heaven would have frozen over.

Looking at the Prenominations, of the people who were prenominated, who do you think was snubbed?

Not that I need people to ask me this in the first place, I just blurt it out randomly, but thanks for asking anyway.

Crystal Chappell was freakin snubbed.

I know you guys like to beat up on Molly Burnett for everything and anything, but seriously... it's tired. We get it, she's not a good actress by any means but what's the point of being "Mean Girls" about it? Quest Talk about beating a dead horse.

.
Probably the biggest snub is Crystal Chappell.

Crystal Chappell, Gina Tognoni, Brandon Buddy is leaps and bounds better than that guy who plays Rafe on GL.

i second joshua's list, but add laura wright in best actress as a big fat snub. i am especially pissed about all the OLTL snubs. i was completely shocked when i got to read the full list of nominations. they are pretty much awful across the board (with a few exceptions of course).

Crystal Chappell, Gina Tognoni, and Marcy Rylan were all snubbed!! But seriously, why am I even surprised by this??? GL has got the best actors and actress' in daytime, hell in practially ALL of television - no wonder they were snubbed because they would have just kicked ass and brought the damn trophies home!!

I am happy to see Daniel and Jeff with noms; however, bittersweet it may be for them. Congrats guys!

Who was snubbed? We all were. I am adopting Jamey's "Opposite Thinking" here and say that the right actors and actresses were picked. Remember, this is now a genre for the "not fans" of soap operas. So yes, I agree with all of the nominations, considering that we will have to wait until the year that they all are cancelled and then the real fans will finally have their say.

To say all the right people were snubbed is a gross understatement. Where is Crystal Chappell, Arianne Zucker and Gina Tongnoni's nomination for best supporting actress? I should've known when I heard B&B & DOOL were nominated for Best Drama Series all the wrong people/shows had been nominated. It's the craziest thing I've ever heard/read. This has been a dark day in daytime history in my book!!

Where are Billy Magnussen and Mick Hazen in the "Younger Actor" category, especially the former. Totally snubbed. Sad
.

Zack Conroy better be nominated in this category next year (unless he is too old but I have no idea how old he is)

It makes zero sense that "The Bold & the Beautiful" could be nominated as best of anything. That show was HORRIBLE last year! Seriously, not one actor from the show is nominated and it receives an Outstanding Drama nomination? How is this possible?

"Y&R" was the BEST written show followed by "One Life to Live" last year. "Guiding Light" has suddenly shot to the top since Phillip returned. (Yeah, I'm really surprised at how much the show has done a 180!)

How can "Days of Our Lives" get it's nomination? What are these people thinking.

CRYSTAL *THE GODDESS* CHAPPELL!!

Gina Tognoni
Marcy Rylan
Kim Zimmer

Congrats to the GL guys, but what did the GL ladies do to the voters to have this injustice done to them??? There is no reasonable explanation for none of these 4 woman, and especially Crystal from getting nominated!!! Nothing that involves judging on pure talent anyway!!!

Its crazy I tell you!!!

For the first half of 2008 (the year the Emmys are for), DAYS was excellent. Ed Scott was the ep and the show FINALLY after years of garbage had a great umbrella story with a very mixed (young and old) ensemble cast.

It FINALLY deserved and EMMY and so did Peter Reckell, Rachel Melvin and Blake Berris. Darin Brooks, not so much.

The whole cast of Guiding Light.
(Excluding Grady, Cyrus, Ashley, and Daisy of course)

But, I mean, you look at it. In so many ways GL has the most outstanding cast, and actors on their show. Period. The are just great. No doubt about it.

Crystal Chappell was snubbed as well as Gina Tognoni, and Marcy Rylan.

These actresses had to deal with a new production model and limited budget, and have to do their scenes in one take. That's acting for you - to be able to flawlessly perform your role in the midst of those challenges with grace and dignity. They are truly class acts like no other, and I'm so proud to be called one of their fans.

You three ladies are stars in my book!

No offense to Molly, but she can't act and Corday forcing this character down our throats with no rooting value and no connection with a core family except Max I think that people have the right to be dissing her, LOL. I don't think we are mean, but when you are an actor, you are suppose to learn to act or bring it or be gone, not taking valuable air time for other characters people want to see.

why bash Molly Burnett? She's not the best actress, but considering she's playing with the big guys, and is in lead SL's, she's doing pretty dang good.

Besides, she's better than Alderson.
