Who actually has a say in who's nominated?

I'm one who's for One Life to Live, but I think it was a serious omission to leave out Arianne Zucker for what she's been doing this year on Days.

I do agree that the absence of Zucker is a glaring ommission. She was one of the very few bright spots on DAYS this year, and she's put in some of the best work of her career since she's been back.

How many episodes have even been made available for the Life in General and Greenville General web soap. I saw one and I never saw anymore go up, but I got bored waiting and haven't checked in awhile.

With Arianne and Melissa Claire they're doing their best work NOW, and they'll definitely be included next year (as well as Bree Williamson I think), but the group of us had to quantify who had better acting scenes throughout the whole year, and we felt KKL opposite Storm/Phoebe's death, and Kathy Brier during the culmination of the Paris, Texas story and then Starr's baby trauma, that they deserve it this year. Supporting Actress is hell to decide on because they're are so many talented featured players in soaps. More than leads.

I don't see the talent that everyone is seeing in Zucker. MCE, for sure, deserves to be on the list. Yes, she's getting acclaim now because she's pretty much starring in her own story as a psychopath, but I think she's been great all year with the Ritchie story in the beginning and towards teh end. She's been great. Zucker, not so much. She's still the amateur actress she's always been.

I disagree but I guess you expect that LOL.

She single handedly kept the character afloat all summer through the backstage BS. She's given great performers all year. Should she have won? Probably not but her omission is glaring, as is MCE. As Drew said, she's done good work all year.

Weirdly, I think the show I watched the most this year, after DAYS, was GH. I really don't mind the mob show like most people do. I never watched GH in its glory days when it was about the actual hospital though so...LOL.
I never quit watching it. I just hated most of what I was seeing but I've been enjoying it now since around October.

There seems to be more focus on other things in addition to the mob. I like Sonny/Claudia. I like Maxie/Spinelli. I'm excited about Lucky/Liz and Jason/Sam. I'm enjoying alot of it right now. It still needs work but it's better IMO.
I think Claudia is one of the biggest and best bitches to hit daytime in a while. Some of the dialogue with her and Carly was just amazing this year.

Maxie/Spinelli - LOVE them.

I agree.

Hated her to start but once they threw her in with Sonny, I really started enjoying her. Sonny/Claudia/Ric has enormous potential as a triangle.

Claudia/Carly is pretty good. I despise Carly right now so I love when Claudia and her go at it.
