Some, including myself, had expected Geary to take home the award since the voting academy is known to favor actors portraying multiple characters. Geary's Emmy submission had featured him in at least three roles. However, it wasn't quite enough to win out over LeBlanc's It's a Wonderful Lifesque submission. If Reckell had won the award, it would have been the first time since Macdonal Carey's win in 1975 that a Days of Our Lives actor had won in the category.
