Acknowledgment.

Earlier this morning the 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards Nominations were announced and “All My Children” was well represented with five actor nominations.

Ricky Paull Goldin is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor for his work as Jake. The last year saw Jake help Angie (Debbi Morgan) fend off David (Vincent Irizarry) and navigate her blindness, romance his wife Amanda (Chrishell Stause), and deal with his ex-wife Cara (Lindsay Hartley) re-entering his life.

Outstanding Lead Actress nominee Alicia Minshew may have had to play out other drama last year, but it was her portrayal of Kendall’s grief over Zach’s (Thorsten Kaye) death that made the biggest impact.
