Daytime Emmy Nominee Reaction

CRYSTAL CHAPPELL: It always feel goods. There's never a bad feeling when your nominated. It's exciting, I am sort of in the middle of my day when I am driving my kids around, going grocery shopping and paying bills so it's really kind of this surreal thing that is laid in your lap. I am looking forward to June and seeing people and I am so excited that a lot of new people got nominated. It was really kind of exciting. [I submitted] The second part of Buzz and Olivia's wedding where Olivia is in Company and talking to Jeffrey about their past and the second episode was primarily with Kim Zimmer (Reva). It was Olivia blackmailing Reva to help her with Jeffrey. I thought they were different episodes and told a story, even though it's sort of warped, but it tells a story.

NICOLE FORESTER: It feels fantastic. I am super duper excited and I just feel really grateful that people watch my work and like it. We had to submit two episodes so I picked two episodes around the time of Tammy's death. The first one Tammy was in the hospital and Cassie was keeping vigil and then the next one was a couple episodes later, after Tammy died, and it was a really crucial and emotional time in Cassie's life.

KELLEY MENIGHAN HENSLEY: walked in the building, Eve Luzzi, she handles all the money in the studio, she told me. I actually had my phone off on the drive into the studio. I was having a really nice drive into the city, and I didn't want to ruin it with some bad news, so I waited until I made it to the studio. We had to submit two shows. The first was an episode with Grayson [McCouch, ex-Dusty] and myself. I think I was about five or six months pregnant at the time and Emily was prostituting at the time and was beaten up pretty badly. At the end of the show, Dusty sees her and sees the bruises. It's really a beautiful episode. When I originally read it, I went downstairs to ask who wrote it because it was so beautifully written. The second show had scenes with Grayson again and Robin Mattson [ex-Cheri] and her keeping me in prostitution.

VAN HANSIS: It feels a little bit different [being nominated this year]. I didn't really think about it that much this year, compared to last year, where I thought about it a lot. I didn't really get nervous about it until this morning when I woke up. I had a conversation with my parents and was like, "If it happens that's great. If it doesn't, that's great too." If I wasn't nominated I'd still be just as happy because I have a great job. I love going to work everyday. A nomination is only icing on the top of a cake but it's good to have your cake iced. I submitted this one that was right after the towel scene where Luke and Noah (Jake Silbermann) have their towel fight and Luke is begining to think that Noah has feelings for him. Maddie (Alexandra Chando) comes in and says that she's changed her mind and is not going to move out of Oakdale. It was a good episode because I had some scenes with Alex and also Jake when Noah starts accusing Luke of meddling too much. Also there were some great scenes with Aaron (Agim Kaba). The second episode is right after the first kiss between Noah and Luke and Luke is trying to convince Noah to tell his father that he is gay.

JESSE SOFFER: Once again, it's cool. Very nice. It's a wonderful parting gift. I've been done for a few months now and haven't seen anyone for a while so it will be cool to see them in L.A. and have a reason to go back to California. It will be a good time; I'm excited. I know one [of the scenes submitted] for sure is when Gwen thinks that Will is lying about stealing the money from her mother to pay for Gwen's studio time and Will is framed by Adam and we have this huge fight. So I know that's one of them. I'm not sure what the other one is.
