As the Daytime Emmy Awards nears, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is giving soap fans a taste of what the nominees submitted in the hopes of winning the gold on the big night. Today NATAS released clips from the reels of the nominees for Outstanding Supporting Actor, and there is a lot of talent here. So much so that there are six nominees in this category instead of five!
THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS‘ Mark Grossman (Adam) chose the episode where Adam confronted Victor about how he’s always kept him out of the family. His Y&R castmate, Bryton James (Devon) submitted the show featuring Neil’s emotional funeral and Devon’s heartfelt eulogy.
DAYS OF OUR LIVES nominee Wally Kurth (Justin) selected the episode where Justin opened up to Kayla about how difficult the past year has been for him and his son. DAYS co-star Chandler Massey (Will) picked the scenes where his character pushed Sonny away and urged him to file for divorce. GENERAL HOSPITAL‘s James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) submitted the episode where Valentin reacted to his wedding day imploding. And Paul Telfer (Xander, DAYS) chose scenes where Xander both professed his love for Sarah and threatened Ciara.
