Daytime Snubs Itself Out of Awards Contention

The Casting Society of America
Last week, the Casting Society of America (CSA) presented "The 31st Annual Artios Awards," which honors casting directors for their hard work and dedication to casting television shows and films across the country during calendar year 2015. Sadly, for the first time in as many years, daytime was shut out of recognition by the organization. It only has itself to blame.
Lynn Herring
Since being brought back to ABC's "General Hospital" in a recurring capacity in 2013, actress Lynn Herring has proven time and time again how viable her role as Lucy Coe is to the legacy of the daytime drama series, particularly in regards to the annual Nurses Ball event. Sadly, the soap hasn't provided the actress with enough story potential for her character, whose married so many men in Port Charles that she rivals only Pine Valley's Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) from "All My Children." Herring recently took to Facebook to share her desire to do more than an average day player appearance on the soap.
As we get closer to daytime's biggest night, taking place on Sunday, May 1, the industry is abuzz today over which actors were submitted for a pre-nomination for the "The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards," presented by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). With at least two actors per show for each category (exception being Supporting Actress) several of daytime television's biggest and brightest stars are looking to vie for the coveted trophy that celebrates their hard work during calendar year 2015.
James Nigbor
"General Hospital's" Jake (James Nigbor) hasn't been the same since he was rescued from the Cassadine compound. There's something off and menacing about Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Jason's (Billy Miller) son. What happened to the boy, while he was in captivity that caused the personality shift? And, more importantly, is Sam (Kelly Monaco) safe from 'The Bad Seed' Helena (Constance Towers) created?
Kimberly McCullough, Freeform, Pretty Little Liars
On the Tuesday, January 26 episode of Freeform's "Pretty Little Liars," entitled "The Gloves Are On," former "Days of our Lives" actor Blake Berris (ex-Nick Fallon) makes his debut as Damian Hayes. While you won't be seeing "General Hospital's Kimberly McCullough (ex-Robin Scorpio) on camera, you might want to pay special attention to the opening and closing credits as the actress directed the episode.
