I think her hatred is more towards Deidre Hall than the show itself ;) Oh feud, I kind of love thee.

I'm not sure that the shows hold the SOD domination against Days. I'm sure some individuals do, like Melody Thomas Scott lol. My theory has always been that GH and Y&R take the Emmys so much more seriously than Days. They specifically plan episodes and scenes and stories for certain actors as Emmy bait. Days just really doesn't do Emmy bait. Even when the show is bad and someone gets nominated it still happens organically.
Also Days hasn't had a partner to block vote with for years now. Most of the voting panel is from Y&R, I believe. B&B and Y&R definitely vote together. Every single time. Every year. And you see the results. I feel like people from Days and the dead shows may play favorites, but if they see a reel that they love they vote for it, whether the person be from B&B, Y&R, OLTL, GH, Guiding Light, ATWT, AMC, whatever it may be. I've said for years they need to get the soap press involved in the voting to steer it away from so much bias. Roger Newcomb, Michael Logan, Jamey Giddens, Carolyn Hinsey. People like that should have votes too. This show will NEVER be fair.
That's very true about taking it seriously. I mean, GH gives Tony Geary a certain amount of Emmy bait a year, yet you don't see them doing that for Peter Reckell or even Drake Hogestyn (who have been DAYS' leading men the longest for the same period). Nor do they do it for Deidre or Kristian.
The Emmys have never been fair, why start now? ;)
