HomeTVAll My ChildrenEileen Davidson WINS Daytime Emmy For Outstanding Lead Actress! Jillian Bowe June 22, 2014 19 Comments Days of Our Lives tore it up at the 41st Annual Daytime Emmys! Eileen Davidson (Kristen) snatched up her first Daytime Emmy win for Outstanding Lead Actress. Davidson was previously nominated in this category in 1998 for the role of Kristen Blake, and in 2003 for the role of cosmetics heiress Ashley Abbott on The Young and the Restless. The in demand star will begin airing again as Kristen on DAYS this summer. She is also set to return to Y&R full-time. 19 Responses blake3b June 22, 2014 Congrats and well deserved to Eileen! I’m so glad she won this playing Kristen on Days! I just wish it was Days she was back on full time, she’s much more interesting as Kristen than as Ashley. And this Emmy win definitely proves it!

Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 June 22, 2014 Well deserved! I’m so happy that Eileen won the award. She did such amazing work last year as Kristen and truly deserved it. And yeah, it’s also good to see someone other than powerhouse Heather Tom up there. And this year, Davidson was the one that got her. That’s fantastic. Log in to Reply Nk3play2 June 22, 2014 Eileen DEFINITELY deserved this…… I’m happy her reel was so different from Heather Tom’s too. However, I’m worried Y&R won’t take advantage of this woman and give her good stories. Log in to Reply blake3b June 23, 2014 Me too, she’s so much better at Days. Log in to Reply K8LVR June 22, 2014 I screamed I was so happy for her! I love all the ladies in the category, but I was really pulling for Eileen this year! She gave DAYS new life! Log in to Reply ChrisGa June 22, 2014 Oh yeah, I was yelling like crazy when they announced her name! C’mon Y&R, it’s your turn to prove you’re worthy to showcase this woman’s talent!(FYI, I have ZERO faith they will). Log in to Reply Angie Lucy June 22, 2014 Her Emmy reel was off the charts. She deserves it. Log in to Reply BoricuaAngel June 22, 2014 BRAVA ..well deserved! Congratulations Eileen! Didn’t she look amazing tonight. It’s your world girl! Log in to Reply kgdallas June 22, 2014 Beyond speechless in excitement for Eileen’s first emmy win!!!!! Congratulations to her!!!!! It’s about time! Log in to Reply rozzberry June 22, 2014 Well deserved! It’s incredible wishful thinking(I know), but it would be awesome to see her win next year for Y&R as Ashley. *fingers crossed* for good story. Just out of curiosity has that happened before? I mean an actor or actress winning two years in a row with two different roles/shows. Log in to Reply 1titanman June 23, 2014 I didn’t think she would win on Days for her Emmy but at YR instead ,but so happy for her. She commands the respect of her peers when she won…They all stood up for her, and I’m happy for her. Jill coming up something good for Ashley….hmm Log in to Reply Yoryla June 23, 2014 Needless to say I was over the MOON at Eileen Davidson winning! This was beyond a doubt not only the most deserved win of all the Emmys ever for me, also the most right one. There was always this underlying feeling that she is the one who should really win it, and I am so glad she did! Also, she looked gorgeous, one of the best dressed women of the night, and her acceptance speech was really classy. I also loved everyone’s reaction, the standing ovation, especially Guy Wilson’s reaction. CONGRATULATIONS Eileen!!! Log in to Reply hey mon June 23, 2014 The moment that she first graced our screens in 1984, we knew that we were in for someone special over the years. Her husky voice, flawless looks, statuesque appearance, and beyond compare acting skills. Eileen Davdison. Young and the Restless, Santa Barbara, DAYS. Congrats to the greatest woman on Daytime.

Log in to Reply LizzieVee June 23, 2014 Congratuations to Eileen! A fresh win and not the usual ones that win over and over and over! So well deserved!!!! Class all the way. At first I wasn’t thrilled when it was announced she was back on Days because I was afraid we would be seeing all of those other characters she did the last time. But, boy, did she deliver and she won the prize!
