Don't ask me why, but the Emmy panel is nuts about Bradford Anderson. He has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor three times out of the past four years.

If he gets his fourth nomination this year, he will probably bring it home. This is how the Emmy panel usually plays things (think Christel Khalil but do not think Susan Lucci).

The whole thing is a popularity contest and it boils down to who is in favor at the moment. Emmy winner Sharon Case. She was always getting nominated in the late-1990's and early-2000's but even though she has turned it out year after year, she hasn't received a nomination in nine years.

What is going to be interesting is that this is the first year ever when both All My Children and One Life to Live have absolutely no impact on the nominations. So if there was ever a time when Days of Our Lives had an "opening," this would be it.
Christel Khalil probably had the best reel, honestly. I mean she isn't a great actress, but that category was as weak as its ever been. Shelley Hennig may have had the actual best, but she might not have even had DAYS support behind her because some of the voters may have never even met her. Khalil had Y&R's huge backing. That show is most into the Emmys. And a definite top 2 reel in the category.

Everyone gets gift awards, that happens here, happens in primetime and it happens most frequently in the Academy Awards. Its always the "Oh you were good again so we are going to give you this award for being GREAT 2 or 3 years ago."

Bradford's reel is actually pretty good and the category has some weak competition. I don't think he's going to win it, but I think he will get pre-nominated and then get an actual nomination, but who knows who will change their reels. I think he will stick with his. Its always hard to judge the people when you actually watch the show because that was a huge moment for the character of Spinelli and Bradford nailed it, but if you are just watching him yelling at Maxie, it might not have any impact on someone who has never seen the characters and doesn't know their history. I do agree that he's been nominated in the past for lesser scenes, against better competition. Not sure what that's about, its not like he has been a show-hopper and aside from the "Port Chuck" thing he doesn't seem to have a lot of friends in soaps, outside of GH.

As for DAYS, I think Chandler will win and I'm not sure what younger actors will be going for it, but that's really their best shot to me. Who knows about writing and everything else. They won last year, by some miracle so anything can happen. I wonder if OLTL submitted for the non-acting categories. It would be shame if they didn't.
