I am not saying her material wasn't emmy worthy...but LEAD...come on...she is not a LEAD actress.

"Lead" is as much about tenure and stature as it is about airtime or story. I remember when Frances Reid was nominated for lead in the 80s. When you're only judged based on specific submitted episodes (in whatever category who chose to make those submissions in), it is those individual performances that affect who gets a nomination. Surely Peggy submitted material from the Alzheimer's storyline which has already received awards and critical acclaim. Peggy is ALSO an Emmy Award winning actress OUTSIDE of Daytime. She chose to submit in Lead and clearly the judging panel deemed that her submissions in that category (when compared to the other submissions in that category) were among the Top 4 and worthy of nomination.
Her nomination is likely due to a combination of sentiment and respect...probably more so than the other 3 nominees in her category.
