FLASHBACK: Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series

Nelson Branco has been advocating the return of the "Guest Performer" category at the Daytime Emmy Awards, including the latest "Nelson Ratings" today.

Here's a look back on the winner of this category when it actually existed in 1987. And by the way, I totally agree with Nelson - bring it back!

At the 1987 Daytime Emmy Awards, held on June 30 at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in New York, John Wesley Shipp won as Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series for SANTA BARBARA. Shipp played the short-term role Martin Ellis on the show and won a second straight Emmy. He won in 1986 as Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Douglas Cummings on AS THE WORLD TURNS.

The other "guest performer" nominees that year were:
- Pamela Blair, ALL MY CHILDREN; ABC
- Terrence Mann, AS THE WORLD TURNS; CBS
- Celeste Holm, LOVING; ABC
- Eileen Heckart, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; ABC
