Why hasn’t Deidre Hall ever won a Daytime Emmy?

The woman has her own Barbie doll. 3 nominations, no wins. She hasn’t been nominated since 1985. What’s the problem? The ribbon?

OP, have you ever seen her act?

Deidre has been no worse than any other actress in daytime. To not even be nominated is telling. She pissed someone off.

Politics. They didn’t do the block voting like the Bell soaps. Days did not seem to get a whole lot of nominations Or maybe it was the ribbon.

Being insufferable might have something to do with it.

R6, Days have been raking up the Emmys for some time now. They nominate just about everyone on the show EXCEPT Deidre. It’s weird.

She was up against Kim Zimmer (for the Slut of Springfield scene), Robin Strasser, Gillian Spencer and Erika Slezak for one of her nominations. She was never going to beat any of them.

There are a lot of excellent actresses in daytime that never won, like Beverlee McKinsey. Kathy Hays wasn’t even nominated for some of her work, too.

by Anonymousreply 14June 6, 2024 5:38 PM

She really is one of our finest actresses and it's a shame (but so typical of sexist Hollywood) that she has never been given her due. It's common knowledge in the biz that there are few greater honors than being invited to the scene studies that she and Jaclyn Smith regularly hold at one another's houses or hotel conference rooms, wherein they workshop the works of Moliere, Strindberg and Ntozake Shange, after which they give one another extensive acting notes.

She was so powerful as Electra Woman. There's a strong (if brooding) reunion script circulating that includes the line: (dangling an enamel red ribbon pin) "I'd hang you from my nipples but it would shock the children.."

Deidre did good work in the 80s on Our House, and after that she was a prime-time vixen for a season on Wiseguy where she was great as Tim Curry's trophy wife Claudia Newquay.

She elevated both parts playing a nice, normal mom on Our House, and a very mean, bitchy character on Wiseguy who becomes more of a sympathetic victim later on.

by Anonymousreply 31June 7, 2024 4:06 AM

Days was never respected for good reason- it was the stereotypical soap known for bad writing and worse acting. Daytime had a lot of great actresses, but she wasn’t one of them. Lucci shouldn’t have one and never should have had all those noms which curiously dried up as soon as she was given an Emmy.

by Anonymousreply 32June 7, 2024 4:18 AM

Unfortunately, the "Dead Dog Records" arc of Wiseguy that features Deidre Hall has never been released to the public because of copyright issues relating to the show's music.

by Anonymousreply 33June 7, 2024 4:19 AM

Tim Curry and Hall had a dynamic chemistry on Wiseguy. I like the introductory scene at the party where he greets his estranged wife "Why Claudia, the liposuction certainly has paid off"!

I'll never forget all the characters who were killed off in the early 90s, and then came back. It really was something stupid to behold.

by Anonymousreply 37June 7, 2024 8:59 AM

Deidre refused to wear a ribbon as she said it detracted from people doing anything tangible for AIDS except what is now called virtue signalling. She felt all people did was pin on a ribbon then forget about the cause after the cameras stopped rolling. She actually did work for the charities and didn't she help care for a friend dying from AIDS?

How can people not remember she refused to be a sheep and said that people need to do more to help? She has my respect for that as it was largely true.

by Anonymousreply 38June 7, 2024 9:15 AM

^ Except she could have just taken the ribbon and rolled with it while still doing good charity work. By refusing the ribbon she came off as homophobic and the label stuck

by Anonymousreply 39June 7, 2024 9:23 AM

And has been pointed out she did great work in her early years (Samantha's death, the stalker storyline, her baby's death from SIDS, Roman's murder) and probably should have won there.

Soap had become OTT by the 90s but she was very affecting in her big return storyline and Belle's paternity storyline). She had the balls to do the possession storyline and didn't care if it was sneered at.

She was great (and hilarious) in the overblown serial killer storyline, especially playing evil with great camp. Her playing up Hattie Adams was also hilarious.

She might not have an Emmy but she's been consistently professional and entertaining throughout.

[italics]First, it misguidedly politicizes human tragedy. These red ribbons provide a means by which public figures can appear to make a 'politically correct' statement in favor of a cause they do not support. A prime example was Barbara Bush wearing a red ribbon while seated among the audience at the Republican National Convention but removing it before joining the president on the podium.

Agreed. Hall was right, but she overestimated herself here and didn't stick the landing.

Lucci 100% deserved it the year she won. Her competition was weak, but she also finally submitted the right reel— scenes from Erica’s daughter’s eating disorder intervention. She was excellent in those scenes.

Maybe Deidre will win a Primetime Emmy for her Guest Starring Role in HACKS!

Oh please, I love this idea of respected soaps versus soaps that are not respected. It's all soap opera. Deidre Hall playing the devil is no more ridiculous than Erika Slezak running around playing 6 different personalities or going back in time to the Old West or traveling to heaven. Or Susan Lucci screaming at a bear. It all melodrama and the performances are what they are.

It doesn't matter how many Daytime Emmys someone has, because at the end of the day they are still just Daytime Emmys, no more or less meaningful, than the old Soap Opera Digest Soap Opera Awards.

Kudos to OP who made sure to refer to the award as a DAYTIME Emmy.

Primetime star Dee is probably holding out for an actual Emmy.

Plus, Dee's already received her Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which is far more noteworthy and significant than a Daytime Emmy statue, which is about as useful as a fancy door stop.

Dee is still a beauty and all the cast seem to love her. I do think the Emmys don't like her though as there's been plenty of times she could have been conceivably nominated but ignored.

The last time I know she submitted was when she played mad Hattie

by Anonymousreply 58June 7, 2024 8:08 PM

A couple of years ago when the Daytime Emmy folks made some changes to their Rulebook on how the awards work, they actually used Dee as the example to explain things.

From the 2022-23 Rulebook section on ACTING CATEGORIES:

[quote] One Entry Per Performer / Per Character. Performers are only eligible to enter for a single character once. If the character appears on multiple shows, they are eligible for multiple shows and their reel may contain clips from the multiple shows, but the performer may not enter multiple categories for that same role. As an example, Deidre Hall as Dr. Marlena Evans on “Days of Our Lives” and “Beyond Salem” may submit once for her performance as Marlena, but her reel may contain clips from both programs and any resulting nomination or win would credit both programs. Alternatively, she may choose to submit instead for just “Days of our Lives” or just “Beyond Salem.”
