    Can’t wait until the bitching commences about the nominees.

    For the past couple of years a lot of people have proclaimed that these awards are no longer valid, or at least, a true representation of Daytime’s best work.

    But maybe this year will be different, right? ;) ;) ;)

    The Emmy’s truly are a joke. They have been for a very, very long time. The nomination and voting processes are ridiculous.

    Having said that, who is DESERVING this year?

    – The same woman who deserved it LAST year: Finola Hughes. (lead)
    – Jason Thompson (supp)
    – EILEEN DAVIDSON (lead)
    – James Scott (lead)
    – Wally Kurth (supp)
    – Days and GH both richly deserve Best Show nom’s.

    And I’ll throw in:

    Billy Miller
    Michael Muhney

    Elizabeth Hendrickson
    Sharon Case
    Tracey Bregman

    Of the four soaps, I think YR had the weakest year, but I’d like it to be between BB and Days.
