The Bold and Beautiful’s Katherine Kelly Lang Receives FIRST Daytime Emmy Nomination!





It's a happy, happy day for fans of The Bold and the Beautiful's Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Logan), which any Daytime Confidential reader knows, I am Chief BeLieFer among them! The striking and emotive actress was nominated for her very first Daytime Emmy nomination this morning.

Ironically, the soap's longterm leading lady finally snagged a nod by putting herself in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category. KKL will compete with General Hospital's Julie Marie Berman (Lulu), The Young and the Restless' Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) and Jessica Collins (Avery) and Days of Our Lives' Arianne Zucker (Nicole). Congrats to all the nominated ladies!

    On what planet is Brooke Logan a supporting character? Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for KKL. I just wish it could have been in the leading actress category where she belongs.

    Imagine if KKL and Susan Flannery end up winning in the same year? That would be wonderful!

    And yes KKL has always been a lead on that show but I would argue she spent most of last year supporting the ridiculous Liam/Steffy/Hope storyline and is therefore a supporting actress for the year in contention.

    @AngieLucy, isn’t this for the period of time that was spent propping up the Hope/Liam/Steffy triangle? She really didn’t do much other than that. Now, hopefully with the menopause story and the Brooke/Katie/Bill triangle and the Brooke/Taylor reheated rivalry, now we have leading lady material.

    The scene between her and Taylor, where KKL snapped her fingers and said seductively that she could have Eric back IF she wanted him was the vintage Brooke I knew and loved. Taylor’s insecurity over Brooke’s overt sexuality is classic B&B; I do wonder how Brooke’s menopause is going to play into the next chapter of Brooke’s story.

    Happy for KKL. No matter how I might feel about Brooke as a character, she HAS earned the award, for all the 26 years she’s been making Brooke her own.

    Ari Zucker is the one I’m rooting for, and has a pretty good chance to win, too. I’m assuming she submitted the episodes where she pretended to lose the baby in the stairs. Even though the storyline was dreadful, she did a great job.

    Julie Marie Berman hasn’t really had many storylines last year, if any. I can’t imagine what she could have submitted? Anyway, I love her as an actress, she’s great, so if she wins, I won’t mind.

    HOWEVER: Jessica Collins? Missy Egan? What the heck are they doing on this list?! Granted, Missy is able to do good scenes, but still. Her golden time was as Annie, not as Chelsea. Ugh.

    The actors can decide for themselves, to which category they submit to. So, it was KKL’s decision to put herself up in Supporting, so that she would have a shot at actually winning the award. I’m sure she would have done that even she had been lead last year.

    In a cast full of hair models, KKL is definitely one of the standouts as far as acting goes(along with Susan Flannery, Heather Tom and maybe Scott Clifton). Still, I’d love to see MCE or AZ get acknowledged for working magic with material that was sometimes beneath their talent(AZ particularly had to wade through an ocean of shitty material when she was inserted into the show-eating Dannifer debacle).

    I’m extremely disappointed by the lack of General Hospital stars to be nominated and by the ones who were nominated. There is no way that KA or LM deserved a nomination in my opinion. And that there were no General Hospital leading ladies nominated is unbelievable!! I hope that JT, JMB and BA sweep the Emmys!!!

    Actually both Jessica and Melissa had some great material and scenes last year right before and after the transition of teams and should be here. I used to really like the Avery character up until SB came aboard. I’d be happy to see a Y and R actress take this, but again I feel KKL should win.

    There are a couple of Y and R noms that I don’t support, and I feel that both Sharon C and Peter P SHOULD be here this year.

    But does anyone really think these noms are 100% accurate. They never have been unfortunately.

    Chris you said it right on AZ…”wade through” she’s one of DAYS best all around actresses they have on show by far. She proves it every ;) time.

    KKL is supporting on B&B? These games should not be allowed. They make stupid Emmys. It makes no sense. KKL has been put herselfe into supporting because it’s an easier category to win a nomination. The next year she can try at Best Young Actress

    Interesting list of nominees … are there any links to the specific episodes they submitted? I would enjoy watching all of them.

    And to Yoryla re Julie Marie Berman. I agree that she wasn’t given much good material in 2012. However, on January 30, 2012, she had an amazing performance in scenes with Tony Geary in which their relationship was laid bare and healing began between them. Julie very effectively portrayed a wide range of emotion and I think that this episode definitely deserves to be acknowledged. (And I do find it ironic that this episode happened before the current regime took over at GH).

    Re KKL – I expect submitting as supporting might have been because her talented co-star was submitting for lead. Whatever, the case, I respect her talent .. and do see where she would be a favorite, not only because of this talent, but also because she would be a sentimental favorite as an older 1st time nominee.

    I don’t know the work of the others especially well.

    [quote=pferrando]Hey mon, I actually could see Melissa pull this one off.[/quote]

    Yeah, definitely Melissa or Ari Zucker. Hell, I’d be thrilled with a tie between those two(it has happened before).
