Daytime Emmy Pre-Noms Announced!

emmy.jpg

While the actual nominees won't be revealed until May 1, the National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences has announced the Drama Performer categories for the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

Peer judges viewed clips of each entrant, then selected their top ten performer choices in each category, the results of which were then tabulated by an independent accounting firm. (There are 11 ladies in the Lead Actress category due to a tie.) Those who received the highest number of votes now advance to the Blue Ribbon screening round, which will determine both the nominees and the winners. This year, the Younger Actor and Younger Actress categories, for performers under the age of 25, only had 9 submissions each, so there was no pre-nomination round necessary.

In alphabetical order, here are the pre-nominated performers:

LEAD ACTRESS
Sharon Case (Sharon, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS)
Jeanne Cooper (Katherine, Y&R)
Susan Flannery (ex-Stephanie, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL)
Finola Hughes (Anna, GENERAL HOSPITAL)

Kelly Monaco (Sam, GH)
