I’d like to submit my request that with the normal, inevitable nominations that come this year, Blake Berris will be given a nomination for Best Younger Actor. Of course, I believe he deserves to win in this category but he can’t do that unless he gets a nomination first. I realize that it’s possible Darin Brooks might receive his second Emmy nod in as many years (which MoodyMadMax was a failure on the writing part but DB’s performance was so overdone that it turned many people off before Dena had a real chance to, thus concluding in no short order he did NOT deserve any such recognition) but I will allow that to go through IF Blake is given his own as well.
Of course, Rachel Melvin, Arianne Zuker, and Peter Reckell really stood out last year as well and deserve to be nominated too. Also, I could point to Mary Beth Evans when Kayla watched her father die during the plane crash to be my favorite performance from an actress last year, followed shortly by AZ’s scenes of losing the baby. RM’s moments right before her surgery last March were marred by the Chan propping, but she is next to deserve the nomination.
But it’s Blake Berris who is my favorite and given that the show wasted him for over a year, and was promptly let go, is the most deserving of the nomination. He also has the best shot to win, certainly more so then DB, which maybe why you won’t nominate him, you CBS/ABC affiliated bastards who may have reason to ignore Days in the writing and producing department, but many of their actors should be given their due.
