HomeAwardsAwards CentralWatch the 2014 Daytime Emmy Lead Actress Reels Luke Kerr June 17, 2014 19 Comments It’s Daytime television’s biggest week, Daytime Emmy week! Before the curtain rises on the award show, check out 2014′s Lead Actress submissions! Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), Heather Tom (Katie) from The Bold and the Beautiful face off against Arianne Zucker (Nicole) and Eileen Davidson (Kristen) from Days of Our Lives in the 2014 Daytime Emmy Lead Actress category. Each submitted the scenes they believe featured their strongest work. Which Daytime Emmy Lead Actress submission do you think was the best? 19 Responses met June 17, 2014 Oh my good, KKL thought that scene was Emmy worthy? Well I see Ms. Lang is as delusional as her character. The other ladies (Heather Tom, Eileen Davidson and Ari Zucker) submissions are ten times better. If Ms. Lang win, then its because of pity. Yet another reason why no network wanted this hot-mess of a ceremony. Log in to Reply Angie Lucy June 17, 2014 I was glued to Heather Tom’s and Eileen Davidson’s reels. Katherine Kelly Lang’s didn’t even hold my interest. I cut it off before the 4-minute mark. Log in to Reply Wrecklesslove June 17, 2014 All hail Queen Heather. Give her all the statues! Log in to Reply hey mon June 17, 2014 I am biased, but I think that Eileen had the best,followed by Heather Tom, then clse behind Arianna Zucker. Log in to Reply terriebari June 17, 2014 I don’t get KKL being in this category. She is the worst actress on daytime. Everything she delivers is plastic and unbelievable. Just so boring. Log in to Reply blake3b June 17, 2014 Eileen (Kristen) from Days definitely deserves to win this!!! Log in to Reply rhythmchyc June 17, 2014 Eileen Davidson wins hands down. She had so much diversity in her reel, more so than the other women. Log in to Reply rhythmchyc June 17, 2014 I don’t even watch Days and my interest was piqued. Log in to Reply kgdallas June 18, 2014 Oh man… Heather Tom should just get her Emmy display case to bring this baby home to add to the others! Log in to Reply rhythmchyc June 18, 2014 Heather Tom’s reel screams Victoria Newman. So enraged Altman and Passanante don’t write her like this force of nature anymore. Log in to Reply DenverDean June 18, 2014 Eileen and Heather rocked. I’m also glad AZ finally received some attention for her work – she has truly evolved as an actress. I still rue the DAYS wardrobe people – what were they thinking putting ED in that hideous yellow jacket for almost a month of episodes???? Log in to Reply Jon June 18, 2014 Eileen for the win, but I’d be happy too with Arianne. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 June 18, 2014 Eileen Davidson HAS to win this one. I don’t know why Katherine Kelly Lang made the list. I like her and I know that she can act but her reel isn’t impressive at all. You see these emotional outbursts with Brooke every month if not every week. It’s nothing unique, nothing special. Heather Tom’s reel is strong but not as strong as Davidson’s. Same goes for Arianne Zucker. Log in to Reply Dyllan June 18, 2014 KKL is a good actress, but her scene wasn’t impressive. I’m going with Heather Tom, but I can see them denying it to her. Log in to Reply Secrets and Lies June 18, 2014 Eileen’s performance in that episode was practically legendary among days fans from the moment it aired. I’d go so far as to say that it’s one of the best performances of the last year in any medium – film, prime-time, daytime… you name it. Do the right thing and give Eileen the statue, people! Log in to Reply ChrisGa June 19, 2014 No other actress in daytime drove story so effortlessly last year the way Eileen Davidson did. I love both Heather and Ari Zucker and while I suspect Heather will win yet again I truly believe Eileen is not only LONG overdue but deserves that trophy. Log in to Reply pumpkin June 19, 2014 Heather Tom had best overall meltdown. She is good at this. Eileen Davidson will give her run for her money this year. A Zucker was good but against Heather/Eileen, it iwll be tough Katherine Kelly Lang is a more laid back actress. She is good but it almost hurts her for awards. She gets dominated by whoever is in her scenes. It used to be Susan Flannery and now DD or Heather. These shows do need the laid back actors also. They help keep the shows going also. Log in to Reply Mets82 June 20, 2014 I have to go with Heather. She cries and does angst like nobody else. Even though I dont watch Days, Eileen was great and she looked damn sexy. HE WAS ALL OVER ME!! WOW!! She completely owned Marlena in that scene. That was Marlena right? Log in to Reply CtFireWitch June 21, 2014 Yes, Mets82, that was Marlena. I say Eileen (Kristen) FTW!
