"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.

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

Her nomination is likely due to a combination of sentiment and respect...probably more so than the other 3 nominees in her category.

I'm happy for Peggy! She's a pioneer among soap actresses having been a lead on Love of Life over 60 years ago. And even though that one was even before my time, I do remember her on General Hospital in the early 70s, where she was very good. I don't understand begrudging an 80-something year old actress with this background (and who can still act) of getting a nomination. This could be her last chance at getting one.

I'm surprised Reynolds didn't get nominated... Gold Derby had him as a lock!

Glad to see Days' hair department duly recognized. :p

The thing that drove me crazy about her was how she was always like "Oh, Bo-wwww!!" the way she said Bo just irritated me lol Other than that she was ok, I guess. Pinson was the best Billie for ISA/cop Billie anyway.

If I had to pick a favorite I would pick Lisa Rinna's most recent run but ONLY for its hilarity. She was so unintentionally funny, I actually found myself looking forward to her scenes. (which I guess is partly because everything around her was so horrid lol)

IMO, Pinson was probably the BEST "combo Billie" that took the best of Rinna/Allen and blended them together. Rinna's original Billie was truly that raised rough, scrappy, underdog Billie. Allen's Billie was "Sex Kitten Billie" (which perfectly suited the new "Sex Kitten Kate" i.e. Lauren Koslow). Rinna's "Cop Billie" was... a mess. Her most recent run as Pop-Up Billie was fun if only for the character's snarkiness and Greek Chorus quality. I miss when soaps had regular, connected supporting background characters whose sole purpose was to gossip/recap & comment on what was going on with everyone else. I miss characters who are nothing other than "talk tos".

Considering the backgrounds of some of our characters, I'd like to see one of them try to buy a gun & not be able to. lol
