The day is finally here and Soaps.com congratulates David Canary on his Outstanding Lead Actor nomination for the Daytime Emmy’s!
You can read the complete list of nominees for the 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards here.
David was the only nominee from All My Children and he truly did have an amazing year in 2007.
David has played the dual role of Adam/Stuart for several years and in 2007, both characters had plenty to say! In February, Adam lost former wife Dixie to the Satin Slayer and soon after learned that Krystal was carrying Tad’s child and not his!
Adam had been looking forward to this "second-chance child" to right the wrongs he had done to his other children, namely Hayley, Skye, JR and Colby. Once he learned of Krystal's deception, Adam went a little crazy and tried to kick her out of the mansion. When she wouldn't go, he left her - alone and without a phone - in labor! With no one else at home, Colby saved the day and delivered Jenny Colby Carey into the world.
The drama didn't end there. Adam wanted desperately to make Krystal feel the way he did so he enlisted Janet's help to kidnap the child; he then tried to sell the baby. Baby Jenny was found and though she had to be hospitalized for a while, she is fine now. Adam finally realized the error of his ways and has been fighting his true feelings for Krystal ever since. He's even pretended to be Stuart just to spend a little time with her!
Things seem to be shaping up well for another dramatic year for Adam. He's still fighting his feelings for Krystal and now it appears that he is being haunted by dead ex-wife, Dixie!
This isn't the first nomination for David Canary. He has been nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actor category of the Daytime Emmy's sixteen times now (1986, 1988, 1989, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2008) and has won the award five times!
AMC was also nominated in several technical categories. Those nominations include: Outstanding Drama Series Directing Team, Outstanding Achievement in Multiple Camera Editing for a Drama Series, Outstanding Achievement in Lighting Direction for a Drama Series, Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition for a Drama Series, Outstanding Achievement in Technical Direction/Electronic Camera/Video Control for a Drama Series, and Outstanding Original Song. The songs are "The Me Inside" and "Treasure of Love", both were performed by Jeffrey Carlson, ex-Zoe.
