And Denise Vasi told me to ask the NAACP where the hell is her nomination if Eva Marcille got one! Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens January 6, 2010 Abominable as usual. Log in to Reply Smitty January 6, 2010 Thanks NAACP for making us look bad again, and again, and again…sigh Maybe they should discontinue the acting categories for daytime like they did for daytime series years ago…just a thought! Log in to Reply goyankees January 6, 2010 Eva Marcille shouldn’t be in the same ROOM with Debi Morgan let alone UP FOR THE SAME AWARD!!!!! This, coming from a Y/R fan SLASH AMC loather. I’ll call a spade a spade – DM is one of the few OUTSTANDING actress’s on that show. I harly remember that whole Ty-Ty debacle in Genoa City anyway (shudder) That should tell these people something. If you’re Award Worthy, please – at least be memorable. Log in to Reply joshua2854 January 6, 2010 Terrell Tilford, Texas Battle, Eva Marcille . . . a veritable who’s who of DC dishonorable mentions. Log in to Reply Katiebug9624 January 6, 2010 Ok what about Remy/Christina/Mel from GL? I realize not everyone embraced the new production model but if Texas Battle and Eva Marcille can get on the noms list why not them? Log in to Reply season1217 January 6, 2010 Texas Battle over Darnell Williams. Never thought I’d see the day. Hell, Sandra Bullock got a nomination! Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens January 6, 2010 Where are Tika Sumpter? Shenell Edmonds? The lady who plays Epiphany? Reneen Jones? Log in to Reply east.west January 6, 2010 Time to combine these categories if they are not going to take this seriously. Log in to Reply doctormo77 January 6, 2010 This list brought a much needed chuckle to my day. Come on NAACP, Texas Battle!!! Really? Somebody needs to explain to them the definition of supporting actor and actress. Log in to Reply maxsmom January 6, 2010 How exactly do these nominations advance colored people? Log in to Reply TmontyB January 6, 2010 Eva Marcille?? It’s a joke and half.

Log in to Reply angrierblackerman January 6, 2010 Ugh…Eva Marcille? She is the Denise Vasi of Y&R. Log in to Reply troymcclure January 6, 2010 Who is Cassius Willis? Seriously, no Tika Sumpter???? Texas Battle, Terrell Tillford, did they purposely pick the worst of the worst? No words, I would prefer them discontinue the category quite frankly. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe January 6, 2010 WTF!? No Sonya Eddy (Ephiphany) Kristoff St. John and Darnell Williams don’t get a nom but TEXAS BATTLE DOES?!?!?! Thank YOU SOOO much NAACP! Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 January 6, 2010 He got nominated for that? NAACP is a joke and this list proves it. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 January 6, 2010 Well, at least Denise Vasi wasnt’ nominated. Log in to Reply THEBEST January 6, 2010 I would rather see Christel Khalil on that list over Eva…Debbi better win! TexasBattle over Darnell Williams? WTF? Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin January 6, 2010 Is it April 1st??? Log in to Reply josser January 6, 2010 What a disgraceful joke! Eva Marcille instead of Renee Jones or Christel Khalil? Texas Battle instead of James Reynolds or Kristoff St. John or Darnell Williams??? Just a joke! Tatyana Ali??? Why the hell did she get nominated as a LEAD actress? The woman just shows up and says hi and bye. I’m appalled and embarrassed that this award has been hijacked. What exactly did the guy who plays Det. Gil do to deserve a nomination? Why some of these people are good actors, they simply did not earn a nomination. Log in to Reply angrierblackerman January 6, 2010 They just needed an excuse to put lots of eye candy in the audience…they use the actors and talent they consider the attractive ones, and then added 2 top actresses to give it some cred. This sucks Tika my Goddess is robbed Sonya Eddy is robbed SHENELL EDMONDS ^all this talent, but instead NAACP wants to show the buff and or light skinned guys and light skinned gals with long flowing Auburn hair. Log in to Reply josser January 6, 2010 Katiebug, You’re right! Saint Victor and Mosley had substantial roles on GL unlike Tatyana Ali and the guy who played Det Gil on Y&R. If Sandar Bullock can get an award nominee why not Latina Florencia Lozano? Isn’t Kamar De Los Reyes part black? Someone needs to resign her/his post for allowing these nominations to go through. Could you imagine Eva Marcille accepting her award for best actress portraying and incestuous manipulative cryer? Seriously, instead of Tatyana Ali, why not nominate Sonya Eddy from GH? She actually speaks occassionally complete paragraphs of text instead of a single sentence hear or there. (Look, I like Tatyana Ali. If she actually had a role that required her to significantly act, I’d be happy to support her–l ike on Buppies. This nomination is just wrong.) Log in to Reply Thankulord13 January 6, 2010 This is funny…. The NAACP needs to catch a clue. Heads need to roll over this… maybe these people were nominated because they paid their NAACP dues on time or at least made a particle payment. Log in to Reply josser January 6, 2010 I’m sure Bryton James is laughing in frustration… Log in to Reply east.west January 6, 2010 I will equate the oversights of James Renoylds and Darnell Williams to them most likely not submitting, but where’s Renee Jones and Sonya Eddy? And y’all this is Texas Battle second nom! Now how sad is that? Lawrence St. Victor is somewhere bench pressing in furry. Log in to Reply ladydiamond215 January 6, 2010 Uh do me a favor?! Tell Denise I said she didn’t get nominated because she can’t ACT! Her acting SUCKS! Log in to Reply josser January 7, 2010 East.West, Nope. I’m not going to buy that Williams and Reynolds didn’t submit their names. Do you think Sandra Bullock submitted her name? Lawrence Saint Victor and Karla Mosley were both overlooked. They both deserve nominations over Willis and Ali. Where is Tika Sumpter???? Hell! Where’s Yvonna Kopacz-Wright? My Mel Beaudreaux deserves a nomination over that hack Pigford. In previous years, Image Award nominated Latina/os. Why didn’t they nominate Florencia Lozano or Kamar de los Reyes–he’s Puerto Rican and obviously part black. What’s really sad is that in 2009, although we still have a terrible lack of diversity on soaps, some of the few decent African-American actors and actresses can’t even get an EARNED(!!!) nomination from their own people! Give me a break! Christel Khalil is half of one of Y&R’s most popular couples. What a joke. Nope, I will not be watching this crap when it’s on the air. What a terrible insult to the actors, actresses, and their fans. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 January 7, 2010 But these choices of nominees should show that they are a very lack of minorities roles on soaps and that AA is the majority of the viewer audience and not being given the fair roles or s/ls like the Causcians counterparts. Log in to Reply TC irene January 7, 2010 These nominations get worse every year. They need to start handing out fresh butt whoopings on their judges panel or better yet they should be made to watch Eva,Terrell and Texas act . Why not Denise Vasi her hair is as pretty as Eva’s? Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 January 7, 2010 I think that they just pick any black actor on each show like, einy, meeney, mighty moo and they are the nominees Log in to Reply east.west January 7, 2010 These awards have been crazy since last decade on the Daytime side. The requirement now is to be black or some other ethnicity and to at least appeared for more than 30 seconds in an episode. Log in to Reply east.west January 7, 2010 These awards have been crazy since last decade on the Daytime side.

We should do the same here, b/c Texas Battle? Yesh! Log in to Reply ChrisGa January 7, 2010 Actually, I could almost live with the womens’ list if Eva Marcille weren’t on it–she’s as bad if not possibly worse than Denise Vasi. And while I like Tatyani Ali(whose only on five minutes a month), Tonya Lee Williams(on five minutes every six months) and even Daphne Duplaix(on slightly more but paired with the worst actor on the show), Tika Sumpter is one of the absolute best things going right now on OLTL and has been for, I don’t know, EVER. Hell, I could even stomach the highly inconsistent Christel Khalil. But Marcille? That one’s a dealbreaker. Thank heavens for that goddess Debbi Morgan, still far and away AMC’s best actress. And sadly, the men’s list is even worse–Bryton James and Cornelius Smith are the only ACTORS represented. I mean, I don’t even like the character of Neil but I can appreciate the talents of Kristoff St. John. And no Darnell Williams? Biggest. Travesty. This. Year. Log in to Reply Grimm January 7, 2010 NAACP proves its irrelevance once in this category. Better to have no nominations as a critique of the LACK of good roles for actors of color than to scrape the bottom of the barrel for nominations. If the Oscars can do it, anyone can. Log in to Reply weezny January 7, 2010 Bummer — OLTL has a whole troupe of terrific actors and actresses of color, and hardly any of them nominated (Duplaix merits it, Tilford most certainly does not). (And the Darnell Williams slight has been mentioned already, glaring as it is!) Log in to Reply josser January 7, 2010 Siomonstuart, There were better qualified black and Latino actors on daytime. How could Tatyana Ali get nominated over Tika Sumpter, Renee Jones, Karla Mosley, Nia Peeples, Christel Khalil or Florencia Lozano? Whoever made up these lists should be sent packing. It’s disgraceful that Darnell Williams was not nominated as that Willis guy was. Log in to Reply josser January 7, 2010 Hell, why not Jason Tam, who plays Markko, or David Fumero instead of Texas Battle? Log in to Reply pecola January 7, 2010 If it were up to me: Outstanding Actor in a Daytime Series Darnell Williams – All My Children David Fumero – One Life to Live Nicholas Rodriguez – One Life to Live Cornelius Smith, Jr. – All My Children EJ Bonilla – Guiding Light Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Series Tika Sumpter – One Life to Live Debbi Morgan – All My Children Florencia Lozano – One Life to Live Jessica Leccia – Guiding Light Shenell Edmonds – One Life to Live Log in to Reply shackfan January 7, 2010 This is a shame. I don’t know who to feel sad for the NAACP or for Debbie Morgan Log in to Reply aveRex January 7, 2010 NAACP indeed is a joke. No Tika = No Credibility! Log in to Reply Katiebug9624 January 7, 2010 I completely forgot about Jessica Leccia, honestly I think Guiding Light was an afterthought to them. Log in to Reply Mencha January 7, 2010 I am ashamed for them….a mess a terrible horrible mess. Log in to Reply Coffee_Junkie January 7, 2010 This is positively LAUGHABLE. Eva Pigford can’t act for SHIT, yet she’s the top nominee?!? WHAT A FREAKING JOKE. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
