On Sunday evening, Days of Our Lives’ own Patrika Darbo (Nancy) took home a primetime Emmy for Outstanding Actress in a short-form comedy or drama. The award was for her portrayal of Margo on the web series, Acting Dead — the first time this category has been used in the primetime Emmys.
Nighttime Winners’ Circle
“Last night was thrilling,” shared the excited actress. “I really thought I was out of the running when they played my 30-second video [before the winner was announced]. I’m thinking this is my consolation prize. Then Ryan Seacrest announced my name. Surreal — I’m so grateful — thrilled! This comes from my peers.”
Congratulations from some of those peers started pouring in on social media:

During the Day
Days of Our Lives fans will get to see Darbo return to the show this fall. She spoke briefly with us this past summer about it. “We don’t air until November. so of course I can’t even talk about this. It’s fun, there’s things going on there that I can’t share,” she laughed, knowing full well that TPTB prefer to keep a tight lid on upcoming storylines.
Her character, Nancy, is Chloe’s (Nadia Bjorlin) mother. Could this mean that Chloe gives birth in November, or will there be another reason that brings Nancy to town? Either way, you can bet Chloe’s world will be rocked when she arrives!
