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.

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.

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 Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
