The actors on daytime TV are just god awful in their “acting” abilities. Luckily they are good looking otherwise they would be without a job.
Pretty sure Eden Riegel was the first person to win an Emmy playing a gay character. Chandler Massey is the first to win for playing a gay, male character.
His looks definitely exceed his acting ability, but he wasn’t that bad miagoodguy
@miagoodguy: “The actors on daytime TV are just god awful in their “acting” abilities. Luckily they are good looking otherwise they would be without a job.”
That is a generalization + a falsehood. There are several daytime actors who have done an excellent job in their respective roles + deserved to be acknowledged (sadly, they haven’t always received their due, but my point remains). That said, there are some daytime actors who have only gotten by on looks/popularity + couldn’t act to save their own life (but that’s the same for some actors within every genre). For example, I have no idea why Scott Clifton (B + B, Liam Spencer) has won any awards for acting. Come on…
Eric Braeden (Y + R, Victor Newman), however, I think has done a great job in his role.
For a quick minute, the actress playing his g’mother reminded me of Candice Bergen.
@miagoodguy: So what you are insinuating is that if Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, Daniel Day Lewis and Sally Field were to read the lines from a daytime TV show, their acting ability would make the story line/dialogue more believable?
Never said anything about the storyline being believable. The acting of the typical soap opera “actor” (and I use the term actor liberally) is just god aweful.
