Your calls are already beginning to come in! Call the Daytime Confidential Hotline with your reaction to the 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.
Chuck Pratt?? For real?? LMAO. Nothing else matter because Chucky P. being a nominee make the rest irrelevant.
The omission of Stacy Haiduk makes no sense-- she turned in the best performance on Y&R last year. Glad Doug and Peter were recognized, but Stacy is the reason their stories were so great. Once again the Emmys are a total joke!
Did you omit Bree Williamson from the list? CBS told her she was nominated, but I don't see her name here...
I think that Stacy Haiduk got penalized for Y&R's silly, cartoonish writing for BOTH of her characters . The writing has been very erratic, and often times, one note, but Stacy has turned all the silliness into magic. This is probably why Deidre Hall never got nominated during James Reilly's writing stints on DAYS, despite her wonderful acting. History shows that when stories become too implausible and off the wall, Emmy voters usually find it difficult to take the ACTOR playing the stories seriously. Bad writing usually overshadows great acting. The only exception that I can recall where this was not the case was Eileen Davidson getting nominated in 1998 for playing NINE characters on DAYS, and DAYS had become a walking cartoon by that point, but still entertaining.
I agree that she deserved to be nominated, but I am not gonna complain about the women in the Supporting Actress category who did get nominated, because they are all deserving, and I feel that this is the ONLY category that the Academy got right.
I am happy for Crystal Chappell- this is surely her year!
Brett Claywell and Scott Evans were robbed..its a real travesty.....
If Chuck Pratt takes home any awards I'll scream bloody murder. Because noticing how some of these soaps are going he'll get hired again at another soap.
I'm happy for all the nominees but sad that none of the GH prenom made the cut for best actor. That's just wrong!
I hope Carolyn H wins this year! She was outstanding in every performance.
I'm thrilled that Drew Garrett got the nomination and I hope he wins the Emmy! He deserves it!!! And I hope GH realizes what a huge mistake they made in dumping him! HUGE MISTAKE!!!
YEAH! 18 nominations for GH!!!
Honestly, Doug Davidson was the only nomination I cared about so I’m very, very happy.
I figure there will be a breaking news esque post about this later, but will post this here anyways:
Brett Claywell's Reaction on His "Snub" http://twitter.com/BrettClaywell/status/555-55558
I roll my eyes at this! I get why he is mad, but really if he wasn't fired there still would've been no way in hell he or Scott was going to get a nomination no matter how much the internet wanted it to happen. Hell 4/5 ppl. nominated in the category he submitted him would take him out in an act off! The Daytime Emmys are a joke now and same can be said about the industry, but his Twitter post is nothing more than him being upset/bitter (I am not even going to lie and act like I wouldn't do what he's doing, but that is not the point) about him not getting the nomination that he and the internets thought he deserved. And yes I will say this too if Stacy Haiduk said this I would've said AMEN and donated money to a collection plate, b/c she is one of the honest to goodness performing snub. Unlike Brett, she carried a storyline, and was very compelling in not just one, but two distinct roles. A lesson he and many should learn is not to believe your own hype (deserved or not).
I only care that Billy Miller made the list!
I agree east.west 100% with you on Claywell. I was very surprised he tweeted that.
Brett has every right to be pissed. He was hired by this soap opera to play Schuyler, then lost that gig, only to be cast as the ill-defined Kyle Lewis. Then when it was announced he was gay and would be paired w/Scott Evans, he didn't walk off set or pull a stunt, he stood his ground, dealt with his reservations and stepped up to the plate, giving amazing work. He served as a PR ambassador for this show, getting them a TON of press, much of which his handlers booked, because, well...yeah. Then, for his efforts, he was thrown under the bus, alongside his costar, blamed for the ratings and accused of being unprofessional. Who would blame him for having a nasty taste in his mouth where soaps are concerned?
The gay thing is a whole other can of worms that I will go there and open. No one would've been saying anything relating to the Emmy's w/Brett's performances if he was not playing a gay character. It would've been relegated to a decent actor doing good work. And if he is so proud of his work than why does he needs an Emmy nom to validate the "Milk" esque work he did. Shouldn't he be contempt w/all the fans and acclaim he got thanks to this joke of an industry? And yes I know this argument is weak/meaningless giving that the Academy made it a fact that Drew Tyler Bell is an Emmy nominated actor now, but I don't know. I see things different than most.
I Think Brett Is Right
ABC basically Whored Him & Scott Out to Promote this story and they gave 150 % to This But then To Be Fired and First Be Told It Was Them that Brought Down Ratings and when people didnt buy that setsiders said they were unprofessional. Then One life didnt vote for them in pre-noms it was because they allowed it to be a genre wude pre-nom they got in and then not to get a nomination
Plus I do agree that Brett had a harder chance to get a Nom but Scott Come on they could have done without DTB Or DP and Put SE There
Maybe Brett Is Not Just Pissed for him but also Scott & Ilene
Those two are family to him
It's truly scandalous that Days and OLTL aren't in for best show.
2009 was a solid year for both shows.
Brett Claywell needs to shut up. He's delusional. The daytime community does not owe him a nomination bec he portrayed a gay character. Also, his reel was crappy. the writing was awful and his acting was underwhelming.
When people like Christian Leblanc, peter Bergman, Adrienne Frantz, Justin torkildsen, Ron Carlivati and Brad bell are prior Emmy winners, then the Emmys are a joke. “Actors” like Teri Columbino have nomination in the past, and “actors” like Farah Fath and Austin Peck get prenominations, so it’s a joke.
While Hunter Tylo, Kimberlin Brown, Eileen Davidson (circa Days), MTS, Victoria Rowell and Bobbie Eakes have either never been nominated or have never won Emmys, then it’s a joke.
Drew Tyler bell’s nomination is a complete joke. One of B&B’s worst actors is its only nominee. At least the panel was smart enough not to nominate Kyle Lowder and Brandon Beemer! Hahahahahahahahahaha!
No nominations for Nelson Branco’s overpimped faves Stacy haiduk, Farah Fath, Ron Carlivati, Nadia Bjorlin, Brandon Beemer, Kyle Lowder and OLTL! YAY! The voters get that he’s pushing his faves while bashing those he personally dislikes! All his pimping did not garner them nominations! LOL! The anti Nelson Branco sentiments are reflected in the nominations. Even in this board, people are against him. heck even the people running confidential were against him when he wrote of kish actor's alleged unprofessional behavior.
CLB had the common courtesy not to submit his histrionic, OTT acting on Y&R! Now he won’t have a chance to deliver his usual awful ramblings that he calls a “speech”. Maurice Bernard’s snub is great also, since Sonny berating Claudia was OTT bellowing.
It’s great that Stafford got a nomination. Stafford for the win!
Jamey, you are right. Brett and Scott was thrown under the bus when they give their 100 percent to the show and what did they get: NADA. SO I would be upset too. The other upset is Alison Sweeney, Stacy Haiduck. They both gave great performances and no nominations. WTF is wrong with that picture? The daytime emmys are a joke.
Days of Our Lives and One Life to Live were robbed for Drama Series.
Alison Sweeney was kickass this past year. WTF!?!
Stacey Haiduk being omitted is just a travesty. Lord in Morning
Jesus take the wheel this year. Don't let Christal Khalil and Drew Tyler Bell go home with emmys. Dear Jesus...*shakes head at epic failure*
the link doesn't work to the Brett Claywell rant. what did it say?
I personally didn't think he or Scott deserved to be nominated. The supporting actor race was probably the toughest one and there were better actors left out.
Sigh, I hate to go there as well but if Brett hadn't played a gay character on soaps he wouldn't have been as popular as he is, same goes for Scott.
So the pimping worked both ways.
"We tell a story that was groundbreaking and powerful, then lose my job and am overlooked for a nomination. Daytime is such a joke."
I do believe that Brett Claywell was fired for the wrong reasons, and his storyline tossed by the wayside for equally as ridiculous reasons, but biting the hands that USED to feed him do not serve him well, or encourage much empathy. If anything, this rant simply makes him look bitter and pathetic.
Whatever happened to GRATITUDE? He did have a job that gave him thousands of fans, mounds of media attention, and that touched the lives of many people, gay and straight, so why not just be appreciative of the good times instead of harping on the bad times??? What does that accomplish at the end of the day?? Nothing.
Besides, an Emmy nomination is NOT an entitlement. If I were to list the HUNDREDS of deserving actors who have been denied Emmy nods over the past 37 years, I would surely run out of space!! People work their entire lives in daytime television---10, 20, 30 years, without getting nominated even ONCE.
He needs to dust himself off and move on, hopefully to bigger and better things.
Brett's tweet. I think he has a right be pissed. I would be in his shoes. And while yes, what he tweeted isn't the smartest, most classy moves. And being a fan of his, find a bit disappointing, since there has been MANY people who have been snubbed and treated badly by daytime as well. Brett's not the only one. But, I think this is a case of letting ones emotions get the best of you. He's only human, with emotions and feelings like the rest of us. None of us are perfect. We all have snapping points from time to time.
I also Think They Both Deserved Nods
Pfft, I get hypersensitive when daytime is bashed.
Maybe Brett can go back and play the village idiot on OTH again *roll eyes*
If it wasn't for daytime I wouldn't even know he could act.
I Dont Think He's Calling His Experience at OLTL a Joke Far From It
I Think It may be Getting Fired Being blamed and Thrown Under The Bus and The Emmy Process
Thanks for your post Jamey...i agree with it 100%....
Brett deserves better than he got after all his dedication to this story and the show that obviously didnt appreciate him as much as his fans do...he should be proud of his excellent work and the fact that he and Scott touched the hearts of millions of people worldwide..They are already winners to their loyal Kish fans who love and support them ..
Brett has every right to be pissed. As Jamie said, he was brought in to play another character and then moved over. Did he quit? No and IMHO, Brett and Scott (Kish) was the best thing on OLTL last year. Not to mention it was a ground breaking storyline. They had more PR than anyone else. Everyone wanted to interview them. They fired him on bogus grounds and then called him unprofessional.
Please anyone one of us would feel the same way if we were in his shoes.
I agree Jamey.
This is bullshit.
