Viewing Single Post From: 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Nominations

Less soaps definitely helps Days get more nominations, but I think the Academy's attitude towards Days changed, as well. I guess they've become less disrespecting. Don't forget that Days got 5 acting nods, 2 of which they won, in 2009, when there were still 8 soaps on air. The trend continued in 2010, when 7 were on air, but 8 still eligible for awards. But, maybe I'm the only one seeing the change.
I can't explain Darin Brooks but Tamara Braun got a nomination because more soap people know her. She didn't do anything phenomenal. It's just frustrating to see actors who are barely a part of the shows' history walk away with nominations and awards when the actors who've put in decades of hard work couldn't get recognition because of politics. Besides, the industry's attitude wasn't the problem. The problem was that number of votes was decided on based on how many soaps each network had. Now ABC and NBC are even. Days specifically benefits in the Emmy process when there are fewer soaps.
