How many of them are people who quit their show before the Emmys.  I'm also interested to know how that process works.  Do they choose their own submission?, or do they leave it up to the production?, or do they leave a note on the way out the door "use the Capwell dinner scene"?

There’s no way that list includes every Daytime Emmy winner who won only once. You’re saying every other winner has at least 2 Emmys?


No way.

The list are those who won in the main acting categories on their first and only nomination. There are Emmy acting winners with single wins but they also have multiple nominations.
