All My Children’s 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards Actor Nominations
Debbi Morgan (ABC)
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.
Fellow Outstanding Lead Actress nominee Debbi Morgan had a big year as Angie, who battled David, became pregnant and faced permanent blindness.
She may have left the show, but Melissa Claire Egan made an impression as Annie before doing so. Last year, Outstanding Supporting Actress nominee Egan's Annie donated her bone marrow to JR (Jacob Young), went through three Chandler men and began her downward spiral when she couldn't take keeping her and JR's relationship a secret.
There may be another actress in the role now, but Outstanding Younger Actress nominee Brittany Allen made her mark before leaving "All My Children." Allen portrayed Marissa as she helped JR through cancer, discovered he was cheating on her with Annie and had a dalliance of her own with Scott (then played by Adam Mayfield).
