The nominations for the 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards have been announced. The actual ceremonies will be held in Pasadena on May 5, 2019 (the Creative Arts "technical" Emmys will be handed out on the Friday prior). There are always a few glaring omissions, and a few nominees that make us scratch our heads. I also question whether some of the actors are in the appropriate category. I just hope they can manage to hand out the trophies without any major scandals like we seem to have virtually every year.

Her work in the recent Abbott family storyline was excellent.
