The Daytime Emmy nominations were announced yesterday with quite a few surprises for Days of our Lives fans.

Overall the Peacock soap did pretty well with acting nominations for Wally Kurth (Justin), Tamara Braun (Ava), Eric Martsolf (Brady), Emily O’Brien (Gwen/Therea), Linsey Godfrey (Sarah), Dick Van Dyke (Timothy), and for Daytime Drama Series.

Dick’s nomination made history because, at age 98, he’s the oldest actor to earn a Daytime Emmy nomination.

However, not all Days fans were happy with the Daytime Emmy nominees.

Arianne Zucker (Nicole) was missing from the list, which was one hot topic.

Let’s take a look at what Days of our Lives fans are saying after The 51st annual Daytime Emmy Award nominations were announced.

Days of our Lives fans celebrate Dick Van Dyke historic Daytime Emmy nomination.

The hottest topic over on X (formerly Twitter) was Dick making history and adding to his already stellar career.

“BIG CONGRATS to the National Treasure that is Dick Van Dyke on his Daytime Emmy nomination At 98 years old to still be getting nominated for his work is incredible You literally can’t root against him Dick is forever a legend #Days #DaytimeEmmys,” read an X.

A different one shared an on-set picture of Dick, Deidre Hall (Marlena), and a production team member to share his historic news.

“I’ll toast to that! #Days #Jarlena #DVDad #DaytimeEmmys,” said an X user with a photo of Dick and Drake Hogestyn (John).

Dick wasn’t the only Days star getting props on social media either.

“I am so happy for Tamara Braun! I just love her and she’s doing wonderful as Ava! I so hope she wins.. #DaytimeEmmys #Days” wrote on X user.

Another gave Linsey mad props for shining as Sarah Horton on the hit Peacock soap.

Eric also earned some serious praise for this year as Brady Black.

While Days of our Lives fans were happy to celebrate those nominated, they also had words for two people who got snubbed.

“Is this some bulls**it I hope its not all there because where is Ari Zucker she carried that show last year aswell as all the others. This is not right #dool #DaytimeEmmys,” said an X.

One X user wasn’t happy Arianne didn’t get nominated and that The Young and the Restless star Melody Thomas Scott was snubbed.

“Congratulations!  But how was @DaysPeacock’s @Ari_Zuckernot nominated?!  Thats insane! #DaytimeEmmys #DaysofOurLives #GeneralHospital #EmnySnub,” read an X.

A different one simply stated that Arianne should have been in the Lead Actress category.

Other Days fans hoped to see Stacy Haiduk on the Daytime Emmy nomination list.

“From the NYE ‘kidnapping’/orchid fallout to winning custody of Rachel and f***ing things up with her back from the dead sister, Stacy Haiduk killed everything they gave her last year,” read an X user who was also hoping Stacy would get a nod as a supporting actress which didn’t happen either.

Wowza! Days fans are speaking their minds about the Daytime Emmy nominations.

Here’s hoping Dick makes history come June and that Arianne gets a nom next year. After all, her time on the hit Peacock soap is ending, and you can read all about that here.

Days of our Lives airs weekdays on Peacock.
