So, here goes! General Hospital’s Finola Hughes rips open the envelope at Saturday night’s 39th Annual Daytime Emmys and announces the winner in the Outstanding Supporting Actress is her cast mate the fantastic, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis)!  Only, Nancy is not at the Emmys.  She is live tweeting in her pajamas, but the tweets, if you were keeping an eye on them on Emmy night and beyond, were hilarious!

As itt turned out, Grahn had a previous family commitment to be at her sister’s lake house on Emmy night!  And today on Chicago’s Windy City Live!, in which Grahn was back visiting her hometown, the actress revealed what happened on Emmy night and finally gave her acceptance speech!

Grahn indicated that when she heard her name called, she and her family were left, “confused, and there was sort of this moment of people looking around and going, ‘What happened?’ And then it was like, ‘You idiot, why weren’t you there?!’”

Next, the Windy City Live crew presented Grahn with an Emmy statue and gave the now two-time Daytime Emmy winner a chance to give an acceptance speech and to tell the audience how it would have gone down, if she were to have been in attendance.  And at first, Grahn was witty and self-effacing, and then it became a beautiful, heartfelt speech to her daughter, Kate who was also in the Windy City Live studio, whereby Grahn gave this Emmy for her daughter to keep!

Nancy said to Kate on-camera, “This is the first time I’m telling her this. This is yours. When you go to college … you’ll take this … because I want you to remember that life is good, and that if you do what you love in life and you do the best that you can and you have faith that all is well, it will be.”

Watch the great video segment after the jump and let us know what you thought about Nancy’s comments and acceptance speech!

When I heard her name, I was happy … as in paradise. This is the surprising, magic woman she should receive it long ago it is worthy without any doubt. I love you, Nancy Lee Grahn ! : ххххо

nancy is so deserving. she’s put her time in the industry with memorable, powerful performances. there are over-rated (susan lucci, maurice benard) and under-rated performers like her. i love it when the underdog wins!

kudos!!

Thanks for posting this!! Nancy is one of my favorite actresses and the Emmy is well-deserved. I love her ability to tackle comedy and drama so well and her scenes are always fun to watch – even when I don’t care for a particular storyline. I’d love to see her interact with more of her GH colleagues – it’s fun to see her scenes extend beyond the “Davis Girls”. She’s terrific with Tracy, Luke – I would love to see Alexis have scenes with Anna, Heather, Todd, John McBain, etc.

I would like to see her in a court room with tea’ on opposite sides. Now that would be good.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
