Earlier today the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, announced the Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards.

All entrants that submitted this year were judged by their peers via an online ballot. Eligible judges viewed clips containing work of each performer and were required to select their top 10 performer choices. In the case of the Outstanding Lead Actress and Outstanding Supporting Actor categories, there were ties this year that resulted in more than 10 pre-nominees.

The candidates below will now advance to the blue ribbon screening round, which will determine both nominees and recipients. The final nominations will be announced May 1.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? Comment Below...
  • Nancy Law

    Well, for the Y&R, why not nominate the whole cast
    and make it all the more obvious that you’re not nominating Michael Muhney … nothing but politics … disgusting!!!

    • Bexx

      Do you even understand the nomination process, or are just bitter and looking for anyone to blame?

      • Nancy Law

        I’m not a bitter person … and since MM has pulled his name out for any consideration, its just moot.

        • Bexx

          Well hopefully next time you won’t rush to judgement and blame.

    • Jenah4

      Michael actually pulled himself out so…

      • Nancy Law

        thank you for telling me that … that makes a big difference.

  • Fred

    Appalled that Michael Muhney was snubbed. One more reason to boycott CBS for their treatment of Muhney and disregard for fans.

    • Bexx

      Get over it! He wasn’t nominated because the female nominees didn’t want to have to bind their breast.

  • J.E. Shurasna

    What about Michael Benyaer as ‘Dr Chyka’ on “Days of Our Lives”??

  • DAYS fan since 2000

    Go Freddie Smith! So many absolutely outstanding scenes last year, for example when Ari was born and Will was in the hospital.

    Chandler Massey (Will Horton) really deserved his two Emmys and he’d deserve a third one any time, but I think now it’s Freddie’s turn, for his wonderful portrayal of Sonny Kiriakis!!

    • Jeanne Hyde

      BILLY MILLER AND MICHAEL MUL.

  • Sofia Vogel

    OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS IN A DRAMA SERIES

    SHARON CASE, as Sharon Newman
    “The Young and the Restless”, CBS

    • Jeanne Hyde

      ADAM NEWMAN (MICHAEL) DESERVES THE SHOT AT AN EMMY. HE WAS A FANTASTIC ACTOR EVEN KNOWING HE WAS BEING FIRED. COME ON MAN……SURELY OTHER PEOPLE AGREE?

    • sands of time

      But she’s the friend of that molester! I think Eileen Davidson, whom played a molester, deserves the win!

    • Jenah4

      I CANNOT STAND Sharon…. But I have to agree, Sharon Case is super talented

  • sands of time

    They should have Kim Novak present an emmy award, in hopes she receives a standing ovation that the Oscar attendees did not afford her. Maybe she would be more comfortable with Hunter Tylo at her side.

  • sands of time

    It’s obvious that DAYS will be all the rage on emmy night!!!

  • Blkboynz

    Eileen Davidson deserves to win an Emmy for her portrayal of Kristen she’s such a great actress.

  • Sofia Vogel

    Sharon Case as Sharon Newman best of the best leading soap actress for over 20 yrs on The Young and The Restless

  • Daytime fan

    Michael Muhney is the best actor- hands down!! I really miss him!

  • nancy

    I would love tosee everybody from days of our lives and days of our lives the soap opera to get it this year they all deserve to win it all

  • Jenah4

    I am really surprised by like, half of these nominations.
