It's easy for a fan that watches the soaps every day to determine who was the best actor or actress on a particular show over the course of a year. However, in order to win an Emmy, a performer only has to put in two really good episodes in a calendar year. Is that fair? It depends on who you ask. Some critics have suggested that the media, the folks who watch every episode for their jobs, actually vote for the winners. Others say it is impossible to get a panel of judges to watch a year's worth of episodes.
Here are the clips submitted by the nominees this year for Emmy consideration.
