Just when One Life to Live's Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) finally seems to have it all, a new "dad", the girl of his dreams-minus her mother's meddling-(or so he thinks) in walks Gigi (Farah Fath), the sassy, street smart girl he dated 10 years ago, complete with a pretty cool kid in tow. So what's a guy to do? Should Rex finally head down that aisle with Adriana (Melissa Fumero), or see if he and Gigi have a shot at happiness?
I was laughing my behind off at how Adriana knew all the words to "Sensual Seduction". Now she knows they didn't let her listen to hip hop at that convent Dorian had her tucked away at! Do yo thang Bitchy Bangs! I ain't mad at you, have fun at your bachelorette party, because Gigi's going to make sure your wedding is the pits!
This could be a tough category. I can't fault any of the actors nominated in this category because each is a true supporting actor. However, at first glance there seems to be some obvious omissions amongst the nominations. Where is One Life to Live's Tuc Watkins? Is John-Paul Lavoiser suffering from the same thing Trent Dawsom did for years, in that Rex is to much of a comedic character? Why isn't at least one of the three actors from General Hospital nominated?
Looking at the prenominations list below and comparing it to the nominees above is there anyone who you feel is missing from this list or who should be on it instead of someone else?

Well, well, well. It looks as if ABC Daytime is putting their super hero cross promotional abilities to good use once again. TV Guide is reporting that the nominations for the 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be announced on The View on Wednesday, April 30th.
ABC has lined up several stars from all three networks to help announce the nominations live. They include All My Children's Rebecca Budig and Cameron Mathison, As the World Turns' Van Hansis, Alison Sweeney and Bryan Dattilo of Days of Our Lives, Marcy Rylan of Guiding Light, and Farah Fath and John-Paul Lavoiser of One Life to Live.
This isn't the first (and probably won't be the last) time that ABC has used its knack for cross promotion to announce the nominations on The View. And you know what, I'm glad. I always look forward to any promotion that the soaps can get and lets face it, CBS doesn't do the greatest job when it is the one airing the Daytime Emmy Awards.
As an aside. Does anyone else find it odd that no one from General Hospital is helping to announce the nominations? Of all the ABC soaps I would expect it to have at least one actor there.
