    I am very disappointed that Sharon Case only submitted herself as "best supporting" for Young and Restless - she has had an enormous year this past Emmy season. I am very happy to see Victoria Rowell, Melody Thomas Scott, Jess Walton and Jeanne Cooper in consideration for the "Best Actress" category.

    I thought each show had three nominations per category. Why does ALL MY CHILDREN only have two in two categories and none in younger actor? The show has been awful lately, but it is certainly not the fault of the actors who make the most of the material they are given.

    Megan Ward for "Lead Actress" Are they kidding? I hope Sabine wins just to stick it to AMC! I'm STILL mad about that foolishness!

    This year's voting was a little different. It took so much longer as well! What a wait! Still, it's nice to have been the first place to get the real deal up here.

    Shannon and I will once again cover the event and Lori Wilson will be with us this year as well! Hope to see some of you there as well!

    Congrats to Michelle Stafford. She is my favorite and she had one heck of a year with playing Sheila, the blackmail, Nick's death, her husband returning from the dead with amnesia, the trial, etc. Love you, Michelle!

    I want to request a double check. Wasn't Beth Ehlers submitted for "Guiding Light" -- and in lead actress, where you've listed just two from that show, Crystal Chappell and Nicole Forester?

    Also, I thought I read from James Scott ("Days of Our Lives") that he was submitting this year in supporting, not lead, actor.

    Wow, so very exciting. There are some surprises here for sure. Now, to land some interviews so all of our fans can hear about the excitement from the nominees themselves!
