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.

Back in June, ”Days of our Lives’” Casey Deidrick (ex-Chad DiMera) and Chandler Massey (Will Horton), along with their And I Still Rise bandmates Stephen Haynes, Mike Gross and Josh Bonaparte, launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a music video for their song, “Sixty Five Roses,” in support of those living with Cystic Fibrosis. Last week the group released the music video on YouTube with a digital copy of the song made available for purchase on the iTunes store. The band received nearly $31,000 in funding for their online campaign, which exceeded their goal of $20,000. The video was directed by Robby Starbuck.

As we previously reported, “Days of our Lives’” Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) revealed to Soap Opera Network that Guy Wilson will replace Chandler Massey onscreen in the role of Will Horton beginning in January 2014. And now, we have the details of the transition, including Smith’s thoughts on the controversial super-quick recast and how Wilson is fitting into the role.
“I’m the middle man who keeps getting asked about it,” Smith says with a laugh over being slightly hounded by the media to comment on Massey’s departure and Wilson’s start in the role. “But basically, what’s most important is that the storyline continues on, because it’s a wonderful story. I’ve had so much positive feedback, and it’s really been life changing for some people. And to think our work can do that? It’s really cool. It’s helped people come out of the closet and tell their parents, and it’s great. I miss Chandler. We started this journey together. But I also love working with Guy. He’s an incredible person.”
