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 in their portrayals. They both look as if they are reading lines they memorized. They are devoid of emotion. I love Y&R but those two are weak links. Sean Blakemore is strong. My only fault with Sean’s story is that it was weak. He is a great actor but I don’t think he did as good as Dominic. If Jacob Young or Dominic Zomprogna win I will be very happy.

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”.

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.


Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?

General Hospital


You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).


Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.


In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.


Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Jophielle Love Talks On Violet’s Emotional Scenes with Finn, the Loss of Gregory, and Taylor Swift

During General Hospital’s recent episodes surrounding the death of Gregory Chase (Gregory Harrison), who succumbed to complications from ALS, many in the cast delivered touching performances; including Jophielle Love (Violet).

In story, Violet learns of her grandfather’s passing when she comes home from school and her father, Finn (Michael Easton) sits her down to explain that Gregory passed away in the middle of the night. Violet’s reaction was one of devastation and tears.

Michael Fairman TV caught with Jophielle on the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmy Award ceremonies, where she was a nominee for Best Original Song for the song she co-wrote, “Shine.” The track was first heard back on a December 2023 episode of the ABC daytime drama series and is currently available on Spotify and other music streaming platforms.

When talking about the departure of Gregory Harrison, and Violet’s reaction to her grandpa’s passing, Love shared, “Well, I was very tired from the taping of the three-day wedding, so I already had the tears in me. I knew that I was always going to see him (Gregory Harrison) in real life, but I was also very, very sad he was leaving the show. He was such a delight to work with.”

When Violet saw how difficult it was for her on-screen dad, Finn, to cope with with the death of Gregory, Love shared, “It’s hard for Violet, but Michael and I, we still see each other and he’s always happy (in real life). But, those scenes were hard. I was comforting him.”

Receiving her first Daytime Emmy nomination as songwriter was a thrill for Jophielle: “Well first of all, I was jumping up and down and Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) came and told me while I was on set. I was just so excited.”

Since pop superstar, Taylor Swift, started at a very young age as a singer and a songwriter, does Love see herself as a mini-Taylor? Jophielle emphatically stated, “I’m a mini Me“.  As to what she thinks of the record-setting Swift’s music, and if she likes her work. Love shared, “Yeah, yeah … so, so…”

What did you think of Jophielle’s performance during the passing of Gregory? And her comments here on Gregory Harrison, Michael Easton and Taylor Swift? Comment below.
