Chandler and Blake are not in the same category so I don't so it's irrelevant how they compare to one another.

Already posted this in the Emmy thread on the daytime board, but figured it could go here too. Someone asked Judie (who does the promos) which scenes Chandler and Ari submitted for the awards this year, and she answered below. Apparently she edited the scenes for the academy.@heyjude14:
@lulumama2009 chandler's episode aired 2/22/13 and Ari's aired 11/15/13
Thank you for posting this!! What I'm about to say has nothing to do with the kind poster who shared the clips;
All these clips did was piss me off and here's why. Ari was fantastic as always but her clip reminded me with detail just how badly the show destroyed Ericole. I hope there's a way to redeem the horrible mistake they chose, not once but twice, and if there is I really wish they'd hurry up and do it. Some may argue Fetch is the worst mistake this show has done in years. They sure as shit don't help anything but I find the ridiculous "lets stall out an impeccable storyline in the worst way possible" decision to have Nicole shred that evidence regarding Eric to be THE single handed worst thing this show has done since it first hired Dena Higley. It stalled the story, yes but it took away the most beautiful transformation of one of my all time favorite characters and just ripped a hole in the core of what was once a budding relationship like none other on the show. Ari is so good in these scenes and I'm excited for someone who doesn't know what happens next to see them. I don't know if she could win....that will either go to Eileen or Eileen and Ari could cancel out each other. Ari may end up the new Susan Lucci of the daytime Emmys. It's a great clip and worthy....my mind just can not get over how the next chapter literally got on paper.
As for Chandler....I love Chandler and I felt he's been very worthy of the award wins he's received but the majority of us here agree he had long began phoning it in which is why I totally understood the reason to recast (although that wasn't the only reason or maybe not even a reason for the show)....but this reel is interesting because all I can do is see how great Blake Berris is. Chandler's not bad here but holy moly there were more exciting scenes than this. Chandler, to me, is just there. Blake doesn't have a ton here either but he's out shining the entire room. Chandler is an Emmy darling and that's whatever but based on this reel ALONE Blake deserved the nod over Chan Chan....and Blake had many many more intriguing things to pick as well.
I love seeing what actors submit so thanks for posting. Just my 2 cents and a dime. ;)
Although, I loved the hospital scenes and I really think Chandler did an amazing job and he compares well with any actor on the show. If I were Chandler, I would have submitted the wedding reveal, when Sonny rejected him and when he was telling EJ about the baby and why he kept it a secret. Those were great scenes.
