While there won't be any ONE LIFE TO LIVE actors nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award when the contenders are named next Wednesday -- even though the show did have three weeks of eligibility from the 2012 calendar year before their final ABC broadcast last January, none of their stars made the pre-nomination list -- castmembers from the soap, as well as ALL MY CHILDREN, will be able to compete next year!

And that includes all of the actors and crafts people!
