TVSource Magazine names its pick to win Outstanding Supporting Actress at the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. We watched all of the Emmy reels and picked the ones we felt were best based on the submissions. Check out our 2015 Daytime Emmy predictions inside!
For 42 years, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has honored the soap industry and all of the hardworking persons involved by acknowledging the great talent daytime has to offer. The cast and crew of these programs are arguably the hardest working individuals in the entertainment industry and they deserve the accolades.
Though most soaps produce over 200 episodes a year, when it comes to the Daytime Emmy Awards, it’s just a few minutes that matter. Watching an actor bring his or her character to life over a course of a year is very different than watching a sampling of what they consider to be their best work. It’s up the actors and shows to pick the scenes that best show off their talents.
TVSource Magazine staff got together and reviewed the submissions, breaking down our picks by who should win and who will win. We’ve all been there, wondering why a star with a great tape didn’t win over someone who didn’t have one as good. A variety of factors play into why some reels play better with the jury than others. We tried to venture into that area with our breakdown this year.
Outstanding Supporting Actress was a difficult category for us to decide. Initial discussions and voting led to a tie for who should win, but we were fairly unanimous when deciding who would win.
