Performer of the Week
This week was one of the easiest Performer of the Week decisions we have ever made, and it was unanimous. Sharon Case, who plays Sharon Newman on The Young and the Restless, turned in outstanding performances every day this week. A pivotal part of her rich history as the character she has played for almost 30 years was the basis for the storyline that played out and Case nailed every second of it. She played Sharon’s terror, rage, and resolve to perfection. Sharon was facing down the man, Cameron Kirsten (Linden Ashby), who had terrorized her decades before to save her beloved daughter, Faith (Reylynn Caster), and was willing to die doing it. Nick (Joshua Morrow) had told Cameron that Sharon was no longer the scared, weak girl she had been when he had last seen her, and truer words couldn’t have been spoken when it came to Sharon. Her strength and growth over the last 2 decades were on full display this week and it was an absolute joy to watch Case play. Many actors struggle to put together a Daytime Emmy submission reel, but this year Case will have the opposite problem. How can she possibly condense this down, short enough to showcase her best scenes within the time constraints put on submissions? It will certainly be a struggle because every moment was amazing acting, every line, every expression, and every inflection of her voice was absolute perfection. Any aspiring soap actress should watch Case’s scenes this week as a wonderful how-to for the soap genre and that is why we are naming Sharon Case our Performer of the Week. Congratulations Sharon!

We had a host of superb performances this week. Reylynn Caster as Faith Newman (Y&R) got a chance to show off her acting chops as Faith was in a dire situation. Joshua Morrow (Nick, Y&R) was off the charts as a father fighting to rescue his daughter meanwhile Linden Ashby (Cameron, Y&R) blew our minds as the villain we knew we needed as he upended the lives of Sharon and Nick. Then, we had the gutwrenching and heartbreaking performance by Real Andrews as Taggert (GH) who was struggling to come to terms with the harsh reality that after all these years, Trina wasn't his biological daughter. Lisa LoCicero as Olivia (GH) literally broke our hearts as she played the part of a worried wife wondering if her husband would make it after his nasty fall and James Reynolds (Abe, DAYS) once again showed off his incredible acting chops as amnesiac Abe this week.
