Susan Lucci hopes to be nominated for an Emmy again

By Greg Hernandez For so many years – 18 to be exact – Susan Lucci attended the Daytime Emmys as a nominee only to hear another actresses name called when it came time to announced the winner in the outstanding lead actress category.

It became the most intriguing part of the Emmys and Susan went on to spoof the losing streak with commercials and a skit on Saturday Night Live.

But enough is enough and in 1999, on her 19th nomination, Miss Lucci finally took home the Emmy for her portrayal of Erica Kane on All My Children.

Susan never misses the Emmys and was present on Sunday night to present Agnes Nixon with a lifetime achievement award and also to present the outstanding drama prize with Regis Philbin.

When we chatted on the red carpet, I asked Susan if she preferred showing up as a presenter without the pressure of being nominated (she’s only been nominated twice since her big win and lost both times).

“I would hope to be nominated again,” she said. “I love my work and they are writing beautiful material.”
