SO glad that Y&R chose that episode, since it virtually guarantees they won't be in the race. I wish ATWT would have chosen the Henry/Vienna wedding ep- I was on the edge of my seat the whole time waiting for Barbara to show up to the chapel. That was their Emmy reel- PURE SOAP!

Good for DAYS for choosing a very soapy ep. I hope they get in.

I realllllly hope ATWT is able to best GH or AMC for the 4th slot, if they indeed nominate 4 shows, but who knows?

Based on the reels:

Who I WANT nommed: AMC, ATWT, B&B, DAYS

Who WILL be nommed: AMC, ATWT, B&B, GH

:lol: Why are they lying? There is no way OLTL could be that stupid?! In all seriousness, didn't they do this before submitting a crappy musical episode during a successful year? That's truly shocking as is Y&R's choice. It was just such a dull episode and truly nothing happened. I don't understand the logic behind choosing that. They could've submitted probably 15-20 different episodes with how fast their stories move now (how ironic lol). I thought maybe they'd go for The Women-esque episode.

Didn't last year have 3 nominee's? I'd go with B&B, ATWT, GH

TFP, dragonflies!!

I think AMC, B&B, & DAYS have got it locked for nominations. Great choice by AMC, that was one of the best episodes last year. I hope the part where Kendall ripped into David in the courtoom is part of that reel because it was the best part of the episode. I personally would've chosen the episode before that one where Kendall found out Zach died (and David entered the courtoom at the way end), but hey that's just me.

DAYS picked a great episode as well. And B&B's was soo good, I'm glad I started watching that show last year.

If it's four noms, I think GH will definitely be nominated to. I loved that Franco episode.

Didn't watch ATWT at all so can't judge.

LOL @ OLTL's choice.

Yes, they submitted the High School Musical episode a few years ago. Big problem is people don't get the process and will go on and on about how OLTL should of won because of this story or that story but they don't submit those stories they choose to submit a junk episode.

    • The Lily reveal is what everyone brings up, but I thought her romance with Kirk was better. Their breakup broke my heart.  "Damn you---damn you for making me want and hope for things I could never, ever have with a man like you..." I constantly complain about the writing for Iva in the ATWT thread, but never, ever about Lisa's performance. She never phoned her scenes in. 
    • So we've all seen the famous lab fight between Lauren and Sheila, but I don't think we've seen any of the aftermath till now!    
    • The sad irony of Tick Tick Boom is that it was patterned after Jonathan Larson's one man show about his real life anxiety about not being able to make a career as a theater composer and running out of time (hence the title) It debuted on Broadway posthumously.
    • It was Craig. It took place in the barn at the Snyder farm, the episode before she took the backbreaking fall. Craig was breaking up with her because he wanted to reunite with Sierra and Iva knows that this is what's happening and she knows he wants to let her down easy, so in the process although her heart is breaking, she tries to help smooth the way for him to end the relationship. No screaming and shouting, which is the usual Emmy bait but she did great work and it was memorable. I don't remember which scene she submitted for her Emmy reel for the '88 Daytime Emmy awards, do you remember?  It was a shame that Ellie and Kirk ended it getting married because Iva and Kirk were a much more entertaining and dynamic fit. I thought each was the others' best pairing on the show but I don't know if one particular scene stood out for the Emmys, it was more about the banter they had and the obvious chemistry that Brown and Tom Wiggins had. It's just one of those quirks of the Daytime Emmys that Brown was never nominated for her work on Guiding Light despite how incredibly popular her character obviously was.   My main point is that I don't think that her best work from ATWT is even on YouTube.
    • I didn't like the album either.  I only liked three songs: Easy on Me, Can I Get It, Oh My God.   She said this in the interview with Vogue: And she still takes measures to avoid ramping up her fame. She avoided writing a certain kind of song for the next album, for instance. “There isn’t a bombastic ‘Hello,’ ” she tells me at one point. “But I don’t want another song like that. That song catapulted me in fame to another level that I don’t want to happen again. I’m not saying I’ve got ‘Hello’s in my pocket. I was just conscious that I didn’t want my story on this album to sound like that.”   I love songs like: Someone Like You, Rolling in The Deep, Set Fire to The Rain, Turning Tables, Hello, Water Under The Bridge, Send My Love (To Your New Lover), When We Were Young. Those songs had very good melodies and production - they are tier 1 and tier 2 songs for me.   The three songs that I liked on this new album are not tier 1 or tier 2 songs.
