2015 Daytime Emmys: Actresses Who Got Snubbed
Melissa Claire Egan
For nine years, Egan has made a name for herself in daytime. She had a five-year run on All My Children before jumping ship to The Young and the Restless in 2011. Her character Chelsea is one of the show’s most popular characters and Egan has proved her acting chops are on par by earning her five Supporting Actress nominations. This year Egan submitted her work into the lead actress category, but fell short of a nomination. Egan will have to wait until next year to take home the elusive gold.
After a nine-year absence, Grimes returned to Y&R in the role of Mariah, the long lost twin of Cassie. Mariah was far from the sweet-natured Cassie, and she proved she’s a tough as nails woman as she stood up to everyone around her. Grimes showed Mariah’s vulnerable side as she dealt with the trauma of being kidnapped by Ian Ward and learning her true identity. Her performance was enough to move viewers, yet wasn’t enough for the Emmy voters.
While the character of Hope annoyed some viewers, this year her portrayer Kim Matula gave an emotional performance as Hope suffered a devastating miscarriage and her unresolved feelings for her ex, Liam Spencer. With the material given, Matula knocked it out of the park with her performances and seeing as this was her last year on The Bold and the Beautiful, she deserved an Emmy nom.
