Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers has some news to report about popular DOOL star Camila Banus (Gabi DiMera). As you probably know, the Daytime Emmy nominations were announced earlier this week (May 21), and there was plenty of joy and congratulations to go around for those who were nominated for awards. Camila Banus, who was unfortunately not nominated for an award, is speaking out about the situation.
The nominees for Outstanding Performance by a Lead Actress this year went to Finola Hughes (Anna Devane, GH), Heather Tom (Katie Logan, B&B), Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Forrester, B&B), Maura West (Ava Jerome, GH), and Arianne Zucker (Nicole Walker, DOOL).
Given Camila’s involvement in multiple lead storylines, as well as her popular ‘Stabi’ pairing with Brandon Barash (Stefan DiMera, Jake Lambert), Camila very well could have been nominated for this category.
Camila posted a note on Twitter explaining her perspective on not being nominated. “Happy for people that are nominated!” Camila said. “Not being nominated for something I know I deserve recognition [for] is an interesting feeling but honestly I already feel like I have even won multiple Emmys with the kind of support and love I get shown everyday by so many people.”
Camila’s fans have been responding in droves to her tweet about her disappointment over not being nominated for an award. “I was shocked beyond belief that you weren’t nominated,” one fan replied. “Such a shame. You rock it every day.”
Other fans noted that they simply didn’t care about the status of awards. One fan said: “You gave wonderful performances last year and continue to do so. For me, the #stabi love story was the highlight of Days. I watch you because you do good work and give your all, not cause you won an award.”
And someone else said: “Thank you Camila for bringing Gabriella Josefina Hernandez DiMera (almost Grant) lol to life. You are a phenomenal actress that deserves all the trophies. Know that in your fans’ eyes you are already a winner and that we are fortunate to watch you everyday on #Days. Love you.”
At any rate, Camila’s fans certainly have her back on this one, and they’ve been clear that they tune into DOOL to see what Gabi’s up to. Of course, it’s true that not everyone can be nominated, but considering how central Gabi’s storylines are and the popularity of the character, it is surprising that Camila wasn’t given a nod.
