This year 'Outstanding Lead Actor' nominee is James Reynolds as Abe Carver in DAYS OF OUR LIVES
From Soap Opera Central: Abe offers J.J. a scathing rebuke for J.J.'s decision to shoot Theo / Abe sobs as he begs Theo not to leave him / Abe tells Jennifer that he might be able to forgive J.J., but he would never forget what he'd done / Jennifer asks Abe to remember how he'd felt when he shot Brady / Abe pays a visit to J.J. to tell him that he has forgiven him / Surrounded by family and friends, Abe begs Theo to open his eyes
Reynolds is a 4 times 'Supporting Actor' and 'Lead Actor' nominee, once for his work in GENERATIONS and 3 times for this role in both categories, and he has a great chance to win. This reel is way better from that one he was nominated for last year and one of the best of all the performers nominated this year. There is drama and a lot of tears, with classical tearjerker moments for which I almost cried... well, I think in front of this dramatic it is impossible to not be moved and understand, or at least trying to, his character's anger and suffering. Let's say Reynolds does a really good job - even in the scenes with an equally good Moss - and if last year I did not fully understand his nomination, this year not only I understand it, but I want him to win. His reel feels so real and his performance is something of so natural that it can barely called an acting job. The last scene is simply heartbreaking. He is my winner, no doubts about it!
