Thoughts about Daytime Emmy Pre-nominations 2019

On Thursday, January 24, 2019 Emmyonline.com posted the 46th annual drama performer pre-nominations. The final nominees will be announced on Wednesday, March 20, 2019. 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".  The younger list is based on whomever submitted, so everyone goes to the blue ribbon judging round. The link above also includes the prenominees for digital series. The guest rules have changed again, as former cast members who visit can be part of that category, as shown below.

Lead Actress
Sharon Case (Sharon, Y&R)
Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R)
Amelia Henlie (Victoria, Y&R)
Finola Hughes (Anna, GH)
Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, B&B)
Marci Miller (Abby, Days)
Michelle Stafford (Nina, GH)
Heather Tom (Katie, B&B)
Maura West (Ava, GH)
Laura Wright (Carly, GH)

Last year's winner Eileen Davidson is included. At least two people from B&B made it to the next round unlike last year, when they were shut out completely. Days had 1, GH had 4, and Y&R had 3. This year everyone had lead story for part of the year.

Lead Actor
Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH)
Peter Bergman (Jack, Y&R)
Eric Braeden  (Victor, Y&R)
Tyler Christopher (Stefan, Days)
Scott Clifton (Liam, B&B)
Billy Flynn (Chad, Days)
Drake Hogestyn (John, Days)
Jon Lindstrom (Kevin and Ryan, GH)
Stephen Nichols (Steve, Days)
Jason Thompson (Billy, Y&R)

Last year's winner James Reynolds is not included. We have 10 people listed: 1 from B&B, 4 from Days, 2 from GH and 3 from Y&R.

Supporting Actress
Tamara Braun (Kim, GH)
Kassie DePaiva (Eve, Days)
Linsey Godfrey (Sarah, Days)
Camryn Grimes (Mariah, Y&R)
Martha Madison (Belle, Days)
Beth Maitland (Traci, Y&R)
Mishael Morgan (Hilary, Y&R)
Kirsten Storms (Maxie, GH)
Sal Stowers (Lani, Days)
Vernee Watson (Stella, GH)

Last year's winner Camryn Grimes is included. There are 0 from B&B, 4 from Days, 3 from GH and 3 from Y&R. Many of the people in the supporting category this year did not spend their entire year on their respective program.

Supporting Actor
Darin Brooks (Wyatt, B&B)
Max Gail (Mike, GH)
Bryton James (Devon, Y&R)
Thad Luckinbill (JT, Y&R)
Eric Martsolf (Brady, Days)
Wes Ramsey (Peter, GH)
Greg Rikaart (Leo, Days)
Christopher Sean (Paul, Days)
Aaron D. Spears (Justin, B&B)
Dominic Zamprogna (Dante, GH)

Last year's winner Greg Vaughn is not included. There are 2 from B&B, 3 from Days, 3 from GH, and 2 from Y&R.

Younger Actress
Alyvia Alyn Lind (Faith, Y&R)
Kiara Barnes (Zoe, B&B)
Sasha Calle (Lola, Y&R)
Hayley Erin (Kiki, GH)
Cait Fairbanks (Tessa, Y&R)
Camryn Hamm (Shauna, Y&R)
Olivia Rose Keegan (Claire, Days)
Victoria Konefal (Ciara, Days)
Chloe Lanier (Nelle, GH)
Eden McCoy (Joss, GH)
Nia Sioux (Emma, B&B)
Lexie Stevenson (Mattie, Y&R)

Last year's winner was Chloe Lanier is included. The breakdown is 3 from GH, 2 for B&B, 2 for Days, and 5  from Y&R. This is everyone who submitted, so I wonder if anyone aged out of the category.

Younger Actor
Lucas Adams (Trip, Days)
Adain Bradley (Xander, B&B)
Noah Alexander Gerry (Charlie, Y&R)                          
Tristan Lake Leabu (Reed, Y&R)

Garren Stitt (Oscar, GH)

Last year's winner Rome Flynn from "The Bold and the Beautiful" has moved on and is acting for Shonda Rhimes. There are only eight people included: 1 B&B, 2 from Days, 2 from GH, and 3 from Y&R.
