Who Will Win – Anthony Geary

Emmys love Tony Geary and he loves them back. This year will be no different. Our dislike of GH’s absurd and tragically awul “Fluke” storyline aside, Geary’s reel is actually the best of the bunch. It’s also Emmy catnip, not that he needs it. We all knew that the scenes of Fluke/Bill Eckhert/Tim Spencer/Luke’s darkside vs. Luke in the padded cell would be the submission the moment it aired. It is cool to see a very sedated Luke converse with his menacing look-a-like.

Not taking anything away from Anthony Geary as an actor, but the Emmy voters love the dual role trope. The Fluke storyline in its entirey dragged and ended terribly. Geary’s reel is one of the few, if not the only, brightspot in the bumpy ride that was the Fluke plot. Anyone watching the entirety of the story might not find it nearly as enticing as the reel makes it out to be, but Emmys are awarded on the best of the submission, not the entirety of the year.

Counter Opinion: Billy Miller is like the Emmy golden boy, for that reason alone I think he will win. His reel was okay but it’s his popularity that will bring home the gold. Remember that farewell video? – Walker Ragsdadale (@iamwalkerR), Staff Writer.

Originally, I pegged Billy Miller to take home the win. Everything he does is top notch and this was no different. But when I rewatched the reel, it became evident that Michael Muhney (ex-Adam) was the true star of the scenes. Given Miller’s limited episodes to choose from it’s understandable that there may not have been stronger material, but nevertheless his performance was striking. — Ryan White-Nobles (@SourceRyan), Editor-in-Chief

The 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be televised live on Pop (formerly TVGN/TV Guide Network) at 8:00 p.m. EDT/5:00 p.m. PDT.
