2012 Daytime Emmy Predictions: Actress
Will Win - Debbi Morgan "All My Children" Could Win - Heather Tom "The Bold and the Beautiful", Erika Slezak "All My Children", Laura Wright "General Hospital"
Commentary - This appears to be a three way race that does not have a frontrunner at all. Heather Tom could easily win for her role on B&B, as she is a long running soap actress with a huge history with the Daytime Emmys including three wins. There is also Erika Slezak who has won a grand total of six Emmys for her role on the now cancelled One Life to Live. Now I know what your thinking: with that kind of star power, why are neither one of them your choice? Well, I think that All My Children's Debbi Morgan, also a previous winner, has the benefit of double exposure, which includes her new role on Y&R. Voters will be viewing her on several occasions, and as we have seen before with many awards ceremonies, so much exposure can really help boost your chances.
