With less than a month from the big 2016 event, the Daytime Emmy Awards provide a platform to celebrate the best of the best when it comes to daytime drama. With only six awards to hand out when it comes to the actors and actresses who work hard to deliver quality work on their respective soap opera shows, it is a huge honor to simply be nominated and an even bigger accomplishment to win one of those golden statues. But what about those daytime actors and actresses who get snubbed year-in, and year-out, despite their best efforts? Below is a list of Days of Our Lives (DOOL) cast members who deserve a Daytime Emmy, but have never snagged one.
5. Deidre Hall
Deidre Hall has played the iconic Marlena Evans on Days (on and off) for over 40 years now. Her character has been through it all: battling Stefano DiMera, the Devil, and embarking on countless adventures with the love her life, John Black. Despite the fact that she has won countless awards during her tenure as Marlena (including two Soapy Awards for Best Actress, and three Outstanding Lead Actress Soap Opera Digest Awards), she has yet to win a Daytime Emmy for her incredible portrayal of Dr. Marlena Evans. While Hall has been nominated three times (once in 1980 in the Supporting Actress category, and twice in the Lead Actress category in 1984 and 1985), she has yet to be honored with a Daytime Emmy statue of her own.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
