Bobbie Eakes wasn't even Lead, she did nothing that great last year while Stacy Haiduk was the best performer on daytime period and they don't nominate her.

Drew Garret better win the emmy. Julie Berman is way, way better than all the girls in her category.
 

Oh wait AMC was nominated for writing??? LMAO.

The good news is that Tony Geary didn't get another pointless and undeserved nomination.

It's a shame that David Canary wasn't nominated (I'm not sure whether he was even submitted, though), and I think it's doubly a shame that AMC was nominated.  The garbage they churned out over the past year should not be rewarded.  Grrrr, PRATT!!!!

I think Sharon Case should have been nominated for best actress. MS is good but I think it was more Sharon year. Crystal is going to take it any way.

Stacey Haiduk   They must be on crack how can she not have a nomination.

Yeah these were big nominations that that should had been given out!    What the hell Emmys!

Ari Zucker   I believe she's taken this one.  

James Scott has a shot but I'm given it to David.

Sarah and Crystal congrats, I see Crystal taking it home though with the hype she had last year.

Best Young Actor and Actress lists are laughable.  Julie and Drew are taking it.  I feel bad for Kristen though.

And AMC nominated in both WRITING and DRAMA... boy oh boy the show killer Chuck Pratt is glowing as of this moment.

See, this is why I cannot stand the Daytime Emmys!!! They ALWAYS get it wrong!! First of all, Bobbie Eakes??? WTF??? Bobbie Eakes over Laura Wright and Susan Flannery???? What a waste of a nomination. Love Bobbie Eakes to death, but she's got ABSOLUTELY no chance of winning against Sarah Brown and Crystal Chappell! Even Katherine Kelly Lang had meatier material than Bobbie Eakes. Insanity!! ALICIA MINSHEW had MUCH more material to work with than Bobbie Eakes, so if ANYONE should have been nominated from AMC, it should have been Alicia. Where is Terri Colombino from ATWT??? She did such magnificent work in the wake of Brad's death, and should have been acknowledged!!! Pitiful.I guess Laura Wright and KKL are doomed to NEVER get nominated. Sad, but true.

Also don't understand HOW Jonathan Jackson got nominated for those handful of scenes he did BEFORE he found out about Nikolas and Elizabeth's affair. This does cover the period BEFORE that, right??? Yeah, maybe it was just all the hype about him coming back, but that category of pre-nominees was pretty WEAK anyway!! I wanted to see Austin Peck from ATWT make it onto the list also, and I really wanted Joe Mascolo to get his first nomination. He is the best actor on DOOL, next to John Aniston.
 
I shall offer NO complaints about the Supporting Actress category, because I love ALL the actresses who were nominated in this category. This is the ONLY category that they got right. So glad that Beth Chamberlin and Julie Pinson got nominated. They are both powerhouses, and I hope one of them win it!! Also love Carolyn Hennesy finally get nominated, since the Daytime Emmys usually don't like to reward comedy. This category makes up for the FOOLISHNESS in the other categories!!

Outstanding Younger Actress Where is Kirsten Storms??? You cannot tell me that Molly Burnett had a better reel than Kirsten Storms!! Ugh!! My blood pressure is rising just WRITING about it. I often find it difficult to stomach Maxie, but I still think that Kirsten has grown LEAPS and BOUNDS as an actress over the past year and a half on GH, and she should have gotten a nod this year also. The only saving grace in this category is that Julie Berman will wipe the FLOOR with the rest of these girls. I kinda suspected that Julie would pull a TWO-peat, but I still wanted Kirsten to get recognized.

Outstanding Younger Actor:: Two words: Drew Garrett!!! No competition!! No comparison. Nobody else in this category comes close, and if he doesn't win, I will not be a happy camper!!!
 
Outstanding Show-- WHY is AMC on here??? 2009 was a HIDEOUS year of AMC, just like 2008 and 2007 were!!! EVERY show that was written by Chuck Pratt has been horrible, and I fail to see how this show got nominated over ATWT or DAYS!!! Makes no sense. They have no chance of winning anyway, though. This is GH's Emmy. Pure and simple. I just hate to see nominations get WASTED on undeserving shows.

I can't believe Y&R got that nom. DOOL should have it over them.

 The only nominations  really cared about were Crystal Chappell and Stacy Haiduck's. Why isn't SH nominated, why? What did she submit? I really hope CC gets it, the other women are great actresses, but CC killed it every single scene. She submited the graveyard confession, right?

God, AMC, as best? What is this I don't even..

I love Bobbie Eakes, but why is she nominated at all, let alone for lead actress? What did she do in 2009? All I can think of is the reveal that Marissa is her daughter.

I don't watch ATWT, but I'm glad to see Kevin Collins, er, Jon LIndstrom get a nom.

Supporting Actor is going to be tough to call; lots of good performances,  there. 

AMC for best show? Really? Seriously?  On which planet, and where can I get some of those drugs these people are obviously on?

Did you omit Bree Williamson? CBs's Harry Smith said during the announcement that she was nominated, but I don't see her name here. She'd be supporting actress, right?

 This is INSANE!

No Maurice Bernard after that BRILLIANT performance at Claudia's birthday party in October???? 

No Laura Wright after all of her awesome material with the Michael in coma storyline??

No MELISSA CLAIRE EGAN after she has been one of the only reasons to watch AMC for months?? That girl does more day in and day out that most of the other actresses on that show.

Shelley Hennig over Kirsten Storms? I'll never get that one.

No STACY HAIDUK? This is just the cherry on top of the insanity pie!

 I hate that Laura Wright and Maurice Benard  didn't get it..  they had amazing scenes in 09.. TG should not even be in the pre nom ...
JJ for what???crying in the two month he was???
he's breakout scene was this year not last year....
KS should have been there she was amazing as Maxie she had better scenes..
JMB is amazing and she some good scenes but KS should have been there...

Drew will get it of course because this kid is just brilliant....
Sara will also get it as Claudia, I think she submitted the Baby death scenes...
Happy that Carolyn got it...

Best Drama is going to be GH... and I think they should keep a place for next year Emmy

The thing that bothers me most about JJ's nomination is that he'd been back on the show for like, two days, when the cycle ended. What'd he do in the short time he was there, at that point, to deserve this nomination?

Seriously?!?!?!?

Stacey Haiduk should be HANDED the best actress Emmy, are they for real?  Although Im happy two of my absolute favorites, West and Chappell, are nominate.

Best actor should go to Doug Davidson or Michael Park, Bergman will probably get it because STACEY HAIDUK made him a better actor.

Billy Miller OWNS the supporting actor Emmy, if he doesnt win then they should fold up the Daytime Emmys once and for all.

Love that Beth Chamberlin was nominated, but she should have been nominated years ago.  I think Julie Pinson is gonna walk away with this one.

Would love to see MArnie Schulenberg go home with Best Younger Actress.

Drew Tyler Bell, seriously, at least they didnt nominate the hair model that plays his sister!!

I have a feeling it may be wo in a row for B&B, even though its unwatchable at the moment!

 soooooo unbelievably thrilled for Beth Chamberlain....she's been one of the most underrated and overlooked talents in daytime for YEARS....she's deserved a nomination and a win or two LONG AGO and I'm glad she's FINALLY being recognized

so glad that Bree W. is being recognized as well....she's been OLTL's most versatile actress the last 2-3 years and she was great this past year

I can't believe that Florencia Lozano (Tea, OLTL) was overlooked AGAIN...she's a scene stealer (in a good way) and alot of the most intensely dramatic moments Tea was at the center of this past year

happy to see Brian Kerwin and Crystal Chappell nominated too....Charlie was great after Jared's death and Olivia was on fire during GL's final year....would've liked to have seen Grant Alexsander nominated too, as he was GL's Male MVP in '09 for my money

AMC was virtually unwatchable in '09, but David Canary was the only thing that was watchable...he singlehandedly carried that show

HA! No writing nomination for that hack Guza and his GH goons.  Nothing for Tony Geary, either.

And no drama series nomination for GL?  I thought for sure it would get a nod for sentimental reasons, even though it had no chance of winning.

More gripes:

Forgot to mention the Best Actor category!! WTF is Maurice Benard's name?? He's FAR better than James Scott. Sorry. I like James Scott, but it's like comparing a cub to a tiger!! Not much of a contest. However, I am glad to see some new names in the mix in the Lead Actor category. This category tends to get stale and repetitive, just like the Lead Actress category. Michael Park needs to walk away with this award FINALLY!!! He deserves it.

AMC as Best Writing?? Seriously?? Do they not realize that Chuck Pratt was the WORST writer to ever lay his incompetent hands on AMC??? He made Megan McTavish look like David E. Kelley in comparison!!! Don't get it!!!

Where is GH's nomination for Best Writing??? They deserved it HEADS AND TAILS above AMC!!!! Bob Guza gets a lot of criticism, but he is a great writer, and GH had the best storylines and overall writing of 2009---much more even and entertaining than Y&R and B&B, if you ask me. At least GH is gonna win the Best Show Emmy. Glad to see ATWT get nominated for Best Writing, even though they have had their ups and downs. The show is still more deserving than AMC!!! Ugh. I can't get over this!!!

 Wow, lots of surprises here! Some good and a lot that are questionable.

 Bobbie Eakes? I agree that Laura Wright should have this spot, I don't know what the Emmys have against her. She always got snubbed even when she was Cassie on Guiding Light and she did amazing work on there also.
 I think Crystal Chappell has this one hands down again!
 Awesome that Beth Chamberlain and Zach Conboy got noms for Guiding Light, especially Beth! So glad to see her work appreciated for once, I hope she wins this one! 
 But how did Grant Aleksander or Justin Deas not get nominated for their amazing work on GL last year?!?!?!?
 And good for James Scott for getting a nom, as well as Ari Zucker! But how the hell did Molly Burnett get a nom? She's the biggest hair model on Days!
 And no show nomination for Days? I hope Y&R gets it, it was still pretty good and classy last year for the most part.

Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series

Marnie Schulenburg, As the World Turns
Molly Burnett, Days of our Lives
Shelley Hennig, Days of our Lives
Julie Marie Berman, General Hospital
Christel Khalil, The Young and the Restless

I guess Julie will make it back to back wins because none of the other noms even registered Sad

And A Daytime Drama competition with All My Children and As The World Turns, BUT NO ONE LIFE TO LIVE, for 2009? PUH LEEZE Give Me A F****** break. AMC still sucks and As The World Turns just started getting interesting again this year. RIDIC>

These are not as bad as they could've been. At this point the fans and apparently the industry are indifferent, but I still get excited about these for some reason.

Love the nominations for the ATWT Lead Actors & Actress (big congrats to Jon!) and the rest are good to decent. The 4 big things that make my blood boil are AMC nominations for their homage to Clue and PBS Masterpiece Theater, Days snub for Drama & Writing, Drew Tyler Bell's nomination, and Stacy Haiduk's snub.

Congrats to all of the nominees!

To all of the complainers above:  Please correct me if I am wrong,  but isn't it up to the individual to submit themselves,
if they wish to be nominated for an EMMY?  That is my understanding,  but perhaps I am mistaken. Someone please clue me and the rest of us in on this matter.

that's true, some people didnt submit I know that a lot of the GL actors didnt actually the only two that did submit that didnt get nominated was Jeff Branson and Tina Sloan (and of course show) nobody else submitted for GL its the same with I guess with the other soaps.

What does Laura Wight have to do to get a nomination? Even hough there are glaring omissions, thee are also some nice surprises as well: James Scott, Doug Davidson, Arianne Zucker, Carolyn Hennessy, Billy Miller, Drew Garrett.

Best Actress is really Crystall Chappell's to lose.

My WTF? Nominations: All My Children; Pretty much all of the Younger Actress category, especially Molly Burnett; Drew Tyler Bell; Dylan Patton.
