All: Single Scenes You Think Should Have Won An Actor/Actress an Emmy


Recommended Posts

Which is a shame cause she had both the airtime & the material to justify several Emmy wins.

Though Lauren's later work inconsistent most of her stuff with Lago (and Luckinbill to a lesser extent) was definitely Emmy worthy.

Agreed that Fonseca was green but she also had more than enough material (especially during the beginning of her relationship with JT) to justify winning an Emmy.

It took awhile but I ended up liking Adrianne too.

Not more than Lyndsy but definitely I definitely appreciated Leon on her own merit.

She may have had Supporting airtime but she was turning in Lead work.

Margo wasn't on the "Divas" episode. It was Nancy, Lisa, Kim, Susan, Babs, Lucinda and Emma. And I don't think Tunie was still recurring. She was pretty much gone after the Marshall stuff ended. I thought the last thing she really did was represent Carly after Jack came home with amnesia to try and have him declared incompetant, and that was the fall of 2004.

Maura should have won in 2004 when Jack was presumed dead. And in 2008 when she told Jack she was dying. That was great stuff.

Agreed. Her work in her final year, ESPECIALLY in her final episode, more than justified a Lead Actress Emmy win.

Again, I agree. I would point to JT's affair with Anita Hodges as Fonseca's finest hour, and the fire at Gina's as some of the strongest work of both Luckinbill and Diamont's careers.

You're right about Margo, so that would have made Tunie out of place. The "Divas" episode was AMAZING IMO. Is any of that on youtube? The Kim/Susan scenes and flashbacks were divine.

I think you're wrong about Tunie though- I believe she was somehow involved in the Baby Switch story, wasn't she? Either in the part with Casey vs Gwen (paternity), Carly vs Gwen, or after Paul was shot. Either way, she appeared after 2004 and I remember her coming back and being involved somehow in story, which leads me to believe it was Baby Switch.

Also, didn't she defend Casey for cheating in college?

Disagree and history takes my side. Yes, the show itself only has one Best Drama Series Emmy but the actors are hardly ignored.

Slezak has won 5 times, Hilary B. Smith won Lead, Judith Light won Lead twice, Robin Strasser won Lead once, Susan Haskell has won in both Lead and Supporting, Roger Howarth has a Best Younger Actor win, Al Freeman Jr. won Lead Actor in '79, Bob Woods won Lead Actor in '83, Thom Christopher won Supporting Actor in '92, and OLTL won Outstanding Writing in '94 (deservedly IMO) and '08.

OLTL has the most Lead Actress wins of ANY soap! The only category that OLTL has never won is Outstanding Younger Actress.

So, while OLTL may not have a lot of wins in the 2000s (when the Emmy started losing its meaning), I'd hardly say the show as a whole has been ignored.

The Divas episode is definitely on youtube---that's how I checked.

Randomly checking episode counts, Tunie's still making appearances in 2006. She makes five appearances in Jan/Feb 07, and then nothing.

Yes, that scene with Robin Christopher on the witness stand was AMAZING, I will never get over Vanessa beating her that year. I remember I was watching and flipped the [[email protected]#$%^&*] out, I ran all around my house cursing her name...my family laughed :lol:

I can't believe this wasn't posted, Tamara Braun rocked this scene, she gave it her all and then some.

It's strange that NB was making fun of that clip - I thought Alfonso was very good, very raw.

Did they have Lexie as the doctor because of her history with Zack or did the show just use her because she was the only doctor on the canvas?

The beginning of that has the always awkward Reilly recapping...I think most viewers probably knew that Bo was Roman's brother.

Alfonso is GREAT in that clip. That deranged, guttural scream -- that's exactly how Hope would be in facing the death of a young child. Especially in a tragic, unexpected accident, after all they'd been through to get him and after they lost JT.

That ridiculous Reilly exposition kills me, though! Naming everyone by their full name, job title, and relation. God.

      with the anonymous letters to Macy. I think it is good written i am almost conviced it is Sly.... but he is not...
    • This Phyllis story has completely ruined all the good recasting Summer with a capable actress has done. I assume the writers wanted to show how similar at the end of the day she actually is to her mother, but I’m over it.
    • We're celebrating our National Day here today. Not as fervently as some other countries, but still....

    • Again, with this show and their priorities.  Shawn/Belle could be the best storyline on the show right now, yet this is the only day we’ll see them this week. Those characters should be frontburner right now and the fact that they still can be after years of storyline proves that there’s a lot of story to tell. I don’t understand why we can’t see them more. Availability? Guarantees? If the show can give the world to RSW, Greg Rikaart and Emily O’Brien, they could do more for Martha and Brandon.  Speaking of which, this Megan pushing Gwen to be Dimitri’s wife crap is so pointless. But after today, it’s pretty obvious that Dimitri is gay. And all I’m gonna say is that I hope this storyline written right and not like some big joke. This storyline could actually be good if it’s written well. Tie it to Shawn’s storyline and it could be even better.  And, after today, it’s pretty clear that Xander and Chloe have chemistry. I’m kind of interested in them as a couple. It’s too bad that Victor/JA is not here to give his reaction to Chloe hooking up with another Kiriakis man

      And btw, I like ya, Xander, but the best Kiriakis man always has been and always will be, Sonny
    • Yea, I know it’s in the NY Times but this Op-Ed, which speaks of the perils of ‘vocational awe’ and how industries can exploit workers who happen to love their jobs is especially relevant to this WGA strike. I have personally experienced this before on a number of occasions.   https://www.nytimes.com/2023/06/05/opinion/employment-exploitation-unions.html?smid=tw-share
