Daytime Emmy Pre-nominations Announced 2016

On Wednesday, January 27, 2016 Emmyonline.org posted the 43rd annual drama performer pre-nominations. The final nominees will be announced on Thursday, March 24, 2015. The winners again will be decided based on who got the most votes during this round. Below is the list and my thoughts on those who were included this year.

This year there are only four soaps that are eligible for prenominations in the soap opera categories: "The Bold and the Beautiful", "Days of Our Lives", "General Hospital", and "The Young and the Restless". It has yet to be announced whether or not the pre-nom list for younger actors/actresses included all possible people like in prior years though since 14 women are nominated it looks to be the case.

Lead Actress

Tracey Bregman (Lauren, Y&R)
Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R)
Kassie DePaiva (Eve, Days)
Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea, Y&R)
Mary Beth Evans (Kayla, Days)
Finola Hughes (Anna, GH)
Kate Mansi (Abby, Days)
Gina Tognoni (Phyllis, Y&R)
Maura West (Ava, GH)
Laura Wright (Carly, GH)

Last year's winner Maura West as Ava Jerome on GH is on the ballot. This year no B&B performers made it in this category. (I'm stunned and annoyed by this especially if Karla Mosley was in this category, as she should have been nominated for her work on B&B this year as Maya.) Five people who were in this category at the pre-nomination level are in it again this year. Kate Mansi was definitely a lead on Days in 2015, so I'm glad she submitted in the correct category. By show it breaks down for 4 for Y&R, 3 for Days, and 3 for GH.

Lead Actor

Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH)
Eric Braeden (Victor, Y&R)
Tyler Christopher (Nikolas, GH)
Doug Davidson (Paul, Y&R)
Billy Flynn (Chad, Days)
Anthony Geary (Luke, GH)
Justin Hartley (Adam, Y&R)
Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B)
Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Y&R)
Kristoff St. John (Neil, Y&R)

Last year's winner Tony Geary (Luke on GH) is listed in his last year of eligibility as he has left the program. 11 people were pre-nomined last year, six repeated. By show it breaks down as 5 for Y&R, 3 for GH, and 1 each for Days and B&B.

Supporting Actress

Lauralee Bell (Christine, Y&R)
Molly Burnett (Melanie, Days)
Jessica Collins (Avery, Y&R)
Judi Evans (Adrienne, Days)
Linsey Godfrey (Caroline, B&B)
Christel Khalil (Lily, Y&R)
Peggy McKay (Caroline, Days)
Sofia Pernas (Marisa, Y&R)
Melissa Reeves (Jennifer, Days)
Kelly Sullivan (Sage, Y&R)

Last year's winner Amelia Heinle isn't on the list again, though she won two in a row. Eleven people were in it last year compared to now, and only two of them got this far again (Linsey and Kelly). Jessica and Peggy were listed as leads last year. By show it breaks down to 5 for Y&R, 4 for Days and 1 for B&B. Obviously the idea that no females would be eligible from GH isn't realistic, though Days picked up a lot in 2014 & 2015 they only had one pre-nom in total for this category..

Supporting Actor

Sean Blakemore (Shawn, GH)
Darin Brooks (Wyatt, B&B)
Steve Burton (Dylan, Y&R)
Sean Carrigan (Ben, Y&R)
Bryton James (Devon, Y&R)
Wally Kurth (Justin, Days)
Greg Rikaart (Kevin, Y&R)
Christopher Sean (Paul, Days)
Jacob Young (Rick, B&B)
Dominic Zamprogna (Dante, GH)

Last year's winner Chad Duell (Michael on GH) is not listed. Ten people were pre-nomininated both this year and last year, and half repeated (Darin, Steve, Sean, Bryton, and Jacob) as well as Kristoff moving up to lead. By show it breaks down as 2 for GH, 2 for B&B, 4 for Y&R and 2 for Days. 

Younger Actress

Camila Banus (Gabi, Days)
Lauren Boles (Ciara, Days)
Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy, B&B)
Reign Edwards (Nicole, B&B)
Hayley Erin (Kiki, GH)
Kelli Goss (Courtney, Y&R)
Camryn Grimes (Mariah, Y&R)
Vivian Jovanni (Ciara, Days)
Olivia Keegan (Claire, Days)
Hunter King (Summer, Y&R)
Alyvia Alyn Lind (Faith, Y&R)
True O'Brien (Paige, Days)
Ashlyn Pearce (Aly, B&B)
Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma, GH)

Last year's winner (her second in a row) Hunter King is prenominated again, will she get a third golden statuette? Otherwise only Camryn has won this category, though she was playing a different character at that time. Nine people were prenominated last year, and this year the list is 14 with 7 in both years though four people only premiered on their shows in 2015. By show is breaks down as 4 for Y&R, 5 for DAYS, 3 for B&B and 2 for GH.

Younger Actor

Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer, GH)
Bryan Craig (Morgan, GH)
Max Ehrich (Fen, Y&R)
Rome Flynn (Zende, B&B)
Pierson Fodé (Thomas, B&B)
Connor Kalopsis (Chase, Days)
James Lastovic (Joey, Days)
Jonathan McClendon (Chase, Days)
Casey Moss (JJ, Days)
Terrell Ransom Jr. (Theo, Days)
Tequan Richmond (TJ, GH)


Last year's winner was Freddie Smith (Sonny on Days) and he is not on the ballot. Eight people were in this category last year (and other than Freddie only Max Page who left Y&R wasn't listed again) , this year it jumped up to 11. By show it breaks down as 3 for GH, 1 for Y&R, 2 for B&B and 5 for Days. Like the younger actress category, we have two performers listed for the same role, but at different ages.

Congrats to everyone on the ballot. Commiserations to anyone who did submit and didn't make it.
