Whoaaa!
I’m surprised at= Steve Burton (Dylan)
He is very monotone, I can’t think of one earthshaking performance, but apparently he at least one lol..

Sean Blakemore (Shawn) never got the credit he deserved he was phenomenal.
Perhaps he will bring home the gold, that would be good..

Sean is the only one i think should win but it’ll probably go to Jacob Young-haven’t watched the latter’s show in a very long time but he is a very fine actor.

Its a weak group but I think Jacob should and will win it!

You make a good point. The question is WHY the group is weak, don’t you think? With so many good actors, this field should be stronger. Y&R’s Scott Elrod was impressive in his scenes with Jessica Collins, and what about Greg Rikaart’ s touching scenes during Chloe’s breakdown? Is there a rule that a “leading” actor can’t submit in a supporting category during a slow year? If u ask me, Christian LeBlanc really belongs in the supporting slot this year, while Daniel Goddard’s exceptional work during the Lily/Joe affair could have had his leading slot. Just a thought…

weak group. Strange. I think Sean is really good and should have been utilized by the show much better.
Steve Burton, really? lol!!

Jacob Young is the BEST! He deserves to win this year. He’s phenomenal as Rick…

I like Dylan, but although his scene with Avery had its emotional moments on his
part, watching it really only made me miss Avery, and Jessica’s portrayal of her, all
over again! She was great!

This one was hard. I watched them all and I was drawn to the consistency of Jacob Young and I don’t even watch B&B. It was a strong performance. The writing on that show is way too campy however. So in the end I went with Dominic Zamprogna. His portrayal of Dante is beyond reproach. His expression while revealing his affair with Valerie was without fault. There was the pain, the disappointment and even the disgust. He was fantastic and other worldly. I watch Y&R but both Bryton James and Steve Burton are way overrated. They are both too fake… Read more »

I don’t watch GH so between Bryton and Jacob. I say Jacob. He’s scenes were more compelling.

His scenes-oops.

They all look good but I think it will be between Jacob Young and Bryton!

I am not familiar with James but the other actors are all very good. I used to watch AMC and thought Young was one of the best actors on that show. Good luck to all of them. It will be a tough decision.

To me there is no question it needs to be Dominic Zamprogna. Whether you watch GH or not, just watch his reel and it is absolutely riveting. The scenes are all raw emotion; anger, pain, realization, remorse. His portrayal is so real and believable it is painful to watch, but you can’t look away. I can’t watch this reel without tissues handy. Dom is one of the most under-rated actors on TV it is time he was recognized. I hope this is the year he takes home the Daytime Emmy Award.

From these reels, I would go with Dominic Zamprogna.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Jacob to win! He is such a good actor

After watching the reels handed in , I couldn’t pick just one. I would have to say my first choice is “Dominic Zamprogna as Dante G.H.” or “Jacob Young as Rick Forrester B & B”.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
