The Daytime Emmy Awards are coming up on Sunday, April 30, and as the day nears, fans are eager to find out who will take home the gold on the big night. Votes are cast based on the clip reels that the actors submit, so selecting the right scenes is crucial to not only earning that nomination but having a chance to win the Emmy!
Now you have a chance to judge for yourself who delivered the best performance of the year by checking out these official Daytime Emmy reels from Outstanding Younger Actress nominees Reign Edwards (Nicole, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina, GENERAL HOSPITAL), Hunter King (Summer, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS), Chloe Lanier (Nelle, GH), and Alyvia Alyn Lind (Faith, Y&R)!
Reign Edwards (Nicole, B&B)
In Edwards’ reel, she showcases the emotional scene where Nicole confronted Zende about catching him in bed with her sister, Sasha, followed by the one where she considered Zende’s apology when he proposed marriage and she ultimately turned him down flat.
Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina, GH)
Ainsworth’s reel starts off with the thrilling scene where Kristina finds herself held hostage at gunpoint during her mother’s wedding to Julian. This is followed by a more subdued but equally powerful scene where the young woman confessed to having an affair with her college professor in exchange for a passing grade. Next is Kristina’s desperate attempt to keep her relationship with Parker going, and the reel concludes with the young woman asking her father if he could accept a gay daughter.
Hunter King (Summer, Y&R)
King selected the scenes where Summer visited Victor in jail to confront him about how he destroyed her mother, which include tearful flashback scenes of Summer at Phyllis’ hospital bedside. Then, as a change of pace, she ended with the scenes where Summer angrily confronted Luca about his betrayal and visited him behind bars to show she didn’t need him anymore.
Chloe Lanier (Nelle, GH)
For her very first Emmy reel, Lanier started off with the scene where Nelle tried to get through to Morgan and he startled her with a kiss, followed by the scenes after Morgan’s funeral where she comforted a grieving Michael, and finishing up with the scenes where drugged Sonny and then claimed to have slept with him!
Alyvia Alyn Lind (Faith, Y&R)
Lind’s reel contains the scenes where Faith is told by Sharon and Dylan that Sage had died in a car accident as well as the ones where she learns that Sully is not really her brother. It also showcases Faith’s struggle to come to terms with her mother’s lies and her attempt to run away where Victor convinced her to come home.
