This will be an interesting vote since GH was shut out of it.

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!!!

None...really?

All are great actresses on their shows.

Oh wait...is the comment because no one from GH was nominated. Really?

I don't watch Days, but I know Peggy did some great work. Same with both HT and MS.

But SF will most likely win.

Congrats to all who were nominated!

Susan Flannery. It was her final year and she really touched with her last scenes. It was great to see all the things why the audience loves Stephanie before she died. SF did wonderful work there. The script ended up being a little cheesy but as for the acting, it was brilliant.

Heather Tom did some great work too. But Susan should win this one.

Peggy McCay just because I think it's totally ludacris that she was even nominated.

Peggy McCay's role these days barely qualifies as a supporting actress. Lead is absurd!

Peggy McCay. She not only did stellar work in the memory loss storyline, she deserves this award if for nothing else, for 30 years of wonderful work on Days as the warm, soulful matriarch of the Brady family. She was a lead in her storyline.

I will say Susan Flannery did great work aswell, and probably will win. The thing is though, she has won already so many times, I wish someone else could stand a chance this time.

How the hell did Stafford get nominated? Her scenes were horrendous. Her waving her hands at Crimson lights were so poorly acted.

SF deserves this award. She acted her ass of in Stephanie's death scenes.

I am also disappointed that GH was shut out of all these nominations. Finola Hughes deserved to be nominated! So obvious, Heather Thom will win, though it may go to SF because she's now retired.
