Maybe Burnett was helped by the fact that she'd been nominated before?

What did Hennig do? I mean that seriously, not as an indirect slam on her talent, because it seems like she's been gone forever and I can't remember what she actually did while on the show.

I feel like OLTL was robbed. They played with soap cliches in a loving way and that should have been honored, imho. Are they eligible again next year because their last airdate was in 2012?

And if Days was nominated for deadbabysex that to me shows how meaningless awards are. How can you take one piece of a soap and use it to judge the whole thing? Not to mention that in my opinion those shows featured some of the most strained acting I've ever seen. Everybody was trying SOOOOO hard, all I saw was the effort.

When they nominate soaps for writing/best drama- do they at least read a story outline so they can see how things fit in?

Even though I question the value, I think it's hilarious that most of Days nominated actors are no longer with the show, and neither is the writing team.

I'm glad Ashford got recognized (again though- kinda weird, because his amount of screentime doesn't really rise to the level of supporting, imho, in a genre defined by long-term stories playing out daily).
