We'll get into all the design and technical awards later, but those are the "big" nominations. What are everyone's immediate thoughts? I'm totally ready to go all scorched-Earth regarding the absence of Finola Hughes on this list. That's pretty much my first response.

Also, how sweet! Best Show nominations are a participation award! Literally every eligible show got a nomination.

For me, there aren't as many "Are you freaking serious?" names on that list (uh, outside of a couple standouts in Younger Actress, but I will be nice for now) as there usually are, and I am over the moon that OLTL got a writing nomination that was very, very deserved.

What say you? Who or what was cruelly snubbed? Who or what made the cut and it makes no sense whatever and you're wondering who paid off whom?

Congratulations to all the nominees!

Oops, wasn't done. I don't watch Y&R so don't know anything about Hunter King. But there are some decent young actresses on Days. Better than LM, at any rate.

Erika Slezak deserved a nomination for her speech in the penultimate episode of One Life to Live. That is all.
