I agree this nomination is loaded with appeal!!! Many I have seen throughout
the years!!!. For about 5 yrs or so, I have watched The Bay and have seen what a
phenomenal actor with power house performances by Kristos Andrews ( aka- Peter Garret)and
I can’t wait to see more!!! Congratulations to all nominees!


I love that we get to see all the reels! Thank you, Michael! Pete’s face when Daniel tells him Janice was raped. D’oh! Kristos Andrews’s eyes were just … oof! I also love his straight man stuff to Eric Nelson’s Daniel in the pool. Pfft! Good stuff.


All are impressive, but I’ve got to go with Kristos Andrews for the win. Excellent work, very moving. Here’s hoping Kristos brings home the gold.


Kristos Andrews was by far the best. I hope he get the win. The second runner up would be Rick Hearst who always is good at what he does.


Digital what? where does one find digital performances anyway?

EastSiders Season 3 Starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson Kickstarter Campaign Underway!

EastSiders is on its way back for season three, which is great news since the LGBT series starring former As the World Turns star Van Hasis (Ex-Luke) as Thom and creator/writer/producer Kit Williamson as Cal.

Over the last few seasons, the funny, poignant, and extremely well-written series tells the tale of a couple who go through the struggles of their relationship while living in Silver Lake, California.

The journey home to Silver Lake was shot on-location in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and  California over 35 days last fall.
