2010 Daytime Emmys: We Predict the Nominees

by Allison Waldman, posted May 10th 2010 10:00AM
soony_alexis_general_hospital_abcOn Wednesday, nominations for the 37th Annual Daytime Emmys will be announced, and we here at TV Squad are placing early bets in all of the top categories. Will last year's winner, 'The Bold and the Beautiful,' triumph again? Will Peter Bergman ('The Young and the Restless') earn his 16th nomination? Read our fearless predictions below, and don't forget to tune in to CBS when the Daytime Emmys air live Sun., June 27 at 9PM.

Outstanding Drama Series
'Days of Our Lives'
'The Bold and the Beautiful'
'General Hospital'
'The Young and the Restless'

The likeliest nomination here is 'General Hospital,' because it produced another terrific, big-event episode -- the hospital carnival, in which a car crashed through the crowd. It was an impressive and unique moment for daytime TV, so look for it to translate into a Drama Series nomination. Meanwhile, 'The Young and the Restless' offered up Colleen's death, which was moody and sad, and should be good enough to earn the seven-time champ a spot in the final four. 'Days' has been rising in Emmy estimation in the last few years, and is looking set for a nomination after the episode about Grace's death. And after last year's big win, expect 'Bold and the Beautiful' to round out the category.

David Canary, Adam and Stuart Chandler, 'All My Children'
Jon Lindstrom, Craig Montgomery, 'As the World Turns'
Anthony Geary, Luke Spencer, 'General Hospital'
Maurice Benard, Sonny Corinthos, 'General Hospital'
Peter Bergman, Jack Abbott, 'The Young and the Restless'

Will David Canary win a sixth Emmy in his last year on 'All My Children'? At the very least, expect him to land nomination number 12. Maurice Benard and Anthony Geary are both likely to get recognized for 'General Hospital,' and if 'As the World Turns' has any sway, Jon Lindstrom should also get a nom. And with Eric Braeden not in the running for 'The Young and the Restless,' the path is clear for Peter Bergman to snag his -- wait for it -- 16th nomination.

Outstanding Lead Actress

Maura West, Carly Tenney, 'As the World Turns'
Susan Flannery, Stephanie Forrester, 'The Bold and the Beautiful'
Alison Sweeney, Sami Brady, 'Days of Our Lives'
Jeanne Cooper, Katherine Chancellor, 'The Young and the Restless'
Crystal Chappell, Olivia Spencer, 'Guiding Light'

For the most part, these are women who have been honored before and are more than worthy of recognition again. Alison Sweeney has never won an Emmy in competition, but this might be her year thanks to an impressive storyline, in which her character, Sami, believed her baby had died. The dark horse, however, could be Crystal Chappell. Her character's revelation that she was in love with another woman was the strongest storyline on 'Guiding Light' before it came to an end, and a win here could be a nice farewell gift to the recently departed soap. Meanwhile, Jeanne Cooper and Susan Flannery are both locks for nominations, considering their stature and the quality of their performances.

Melissa Claire Egan, Annie Lavery, 'All My Children
Betty White, Ann Douglas, 'The Bold and the Beautiful'
Stacy Haiduk, Patty Williams/Dr. Emily Peterson, 'The Young and the Restless'
Rebecca Herbst, Elizabeth Webber, 'General Hospital'
Bree Williamson, Jessica Brennan, 'One Life to Live'

Will Betty White swoop in and win a Daytime Emmy for her brief turn on 'The Bold and the Beautiful'? Don't bet against her. White's toughest competition is Stacy Haiduk for her double role on 'Y&R,' which is always an impressive turn. As for the final three slots, look for them to be filled by past nominees Egan, Herbst and Williamson.

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Daytime Series

Jacob Young, JR Chandler, 'All My Children'
Austin Peck, Brad Snyder, 'As the World Turns'
Brett Claywell, Kyle Lewis, 'One Life to Live'
Jonathan Jackson, Lucky Spencer, 'General Hospital'
Billy Miller, Billy Abbott, 'The Young and the Restless'

Billy Miller's nomination is the sure bet here, and he's got the inside track to win, because he's been a scene-stealer all year long. Three-time winner Jonathan Jackson has been terrific since returning to the show this season, so expect him to get lucky again in the morning. Meanwhile, Brett Claywell's performance as part of the gay romance on 'One Life to Live' is worthy of a nom, and Austin Peck's role on 'As the World Turns' blended drama with romantic comedy to good effect. As for Young, his character's bout with cancer was poignantly enacted, and should be enough to warrant a nomination.

I'm really rooting for Crystal Chappell to get a Outstanding Lead Actress nom. She definitely deserves it. She did some amazing work in the last year of GL that blew me away.

Although I don't have any solid information, it always seems to me that the network that hosts this event has the winners.
