Killing myself slowly

That year was an INSANELY competitive year among the Leading Actresses at the Emmy's...I believe Kim Zimmer won that year with her "slut of springfield" episode...I may be wrong though on which of those 3 years it was.

I would absolutely LOVE a cancer type storyline for Marlena...Deidre Hall needs something to sink her teeth into, something that is ABOUT Marlena.
Hall needs to win an Emmy before this show goes off the air!
It's a ridiculous fact that she hasn't. I can name 10 storylines just off the top of my head that she deserved it for.
In the 1980's she was nominated three times, and I thought for sure she would win with the reel of Bo telling her he left Roman on the beach. That was just a hideous close call that should have given her the statue.
Then, the affair with John and Belle being announced as John's daughter came along, and she wasn't even nominated. She played those scenes with such conviction and it was electric, but still there was not even an Emmy nod for the work. It astounded me at the time, because to this day, I think the way she portrayed Marlena during the affair saga was her best work. It literally turned an entire fan base on it's head and made us rethink what we thought was obvious. I went in with a feeling that she should be with Roman, and by the time she and Drake were through, I wanted Roman out of her world. That is an amazing performance.
