Can anyone explain this stupidness to me ?

Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos) General Hospital; in the Younger Actor category.

He is far from young, he is grown man (in every way..

Bryan is 24 ..
Old enough to have a master’s degree/Doctor, Attorney, Congressman, he is not a child, and not a ”young actor” , he is an Actor .
How embarrassing for him..

They should cap that category at age 18 ..

25 is the cut off year

Historically, that category has been capped at 28, with a little leeway. Why should he be embarrassed to be recognized for a body of work in a legitimate category? He could not compete in the higher categories because he wouldn’t stand a chance. He is in exactly the right category, and if after age 28, he continues to mature as an actor, then he can move into the bigger categories.

You go su!!!! Even under 18, which is old enough to vote and conceive a child.

@Dylan. No, Craig should not be embarrassed. I mean, the categorization is neither his fault nor his doing. I am blaming whoever is responsible for devising the strange lumping of babies with adults. I just realized Kelly Thiebaud is about four years older than I. If she were still playing the role of Britt, would she also be a younger contender for the Emmy? As I said, the cut-off point should be less than eighteen . Then again, what do I know? Well, I know that anyone over 18 is an adult. How does one compare the performance of a… Read more »

yah but c’mon.. at age 24 any man would cringe at being referred to as ‘a young one” ..
24yr old Marines/military are no longer young ones, they are men and killing machines..
That goes for all at age 24; embarrassed to be noted as young, expecially when holding a Masters ..
I think they should make the young category end at 18..

I’m partial to Pierson Fode’s scenes on B&B. I think he’s done a great job in a short amount of time, plus he’s been given some heavy duty material. I hope he wins.

Believe me when I say, I am shocked to say it but Bryan Craig gets my vote. If ever anyone ever showed so much growth it is him!

The audio for Tequan’s reel doesn’t work. Besides that my vote goes to Bryan with Pierson a close second

Out of all them Nicholas Betchel (Spenser) on GH in my opinion is & should be the Emmy Winner for Younger Actor in a Drama Series GH!

Max Ehrich (Fen Baldwin) gets my vote but lets face it, I think they already know who’s got the vote and it has to do with the producers themselves. That is why I never watch them.

Why is Nicolas Bechtel in the same category as these guys? They are old. He is the ‘YOUNGER’ contender, is he not? I don’t get it!!
But, be that as it may…….Bechtel has my vote. Big time!!!!!! He leaves everyone in the dust, considering his age. This is a STAR !!

heeey Ceecee..
I’m with Bryan/Morgan.. he has been giving A+ performances..

Not as a youngster, su. LOL. compared to whom? Bechtel? Age achieves maturity and ‘Mortem’ is no youngster. As you said, he is 24….. Almost old enough to be little Nick’s father. As a matter of fact, his girlfriend and I are about the same age. Bryan should be in the ‘adult’ category.
However, he is not good enough of an actor to be in that league….is that why? I don’t know. So he’s dumped at the ‘younger’ category’s door? Just speculating here; just sayin’.

Because there are no Emmy categories for Cutest Child Actors/Actresses As cute as the kids might be they’re basically just good at memorizing their lines and following the instructions of the director. They’re far too young and lack the life experience to deliver a truly nuanced acting performance. Nicholas Bechtel is a very cute kid but let’s be honest here…he’s also a little ham who’s just delivering overly precocious lines about his true love, Emma Drake. GH got a little carried away with their kiddie quad but the kids themselves who did do solid work for their age really don’t… Read more »

Oh, I understand KM. I have two small children myself and a ‘brigade’ of nieces and nephews.
More so the reason to establish a category all their own. To bunch these ‘cuties’ with adults is simply idiotic.

Nice work from all the nominees but Nicolas Bechtel is a standout. Tequan Richmond also delivers very understated, natural and believable performances.

They were all very good, but Bryan Craig would get my vote. My mother has dealt with bi-polar disorder for the past 20 years, so I know it very well, and he portrays it in a very real way. The sudden, random shifts from almost euphoria to suicidal despair. The manic episodes, the roller coaster of emotions. I think he’s really matured and grown as an actor since he joined the show in 2013. I’m also gonna say what I say every year at this time when I see the Emmy clips. It’s always amazing how many GH actors actresses… Read more »

I agree with the need for an age rule-overhaul regarding these “younger” categories. That being said, I don’t feel that Tequan or Max even deserve a nod this year. TR’s acting hasn’t progressed much and Max was barely seen. My vote goes to Bryan Craig for some really unforgettable and heartbreaking scenes this year. This actor is a real find. It took a while for me to warm to him, and now I can’t wait to see what he’ll do next. You can’t say that too often. Bechtel and Fode are also very good and would be deserving winners any… Read more »

I feel that this should go to Bryan Craig hands down. Regardless of what his age is or how people feel about him, his portrayal of Morgan going through all of the ups and downs of being bi-polar before he was diagnosed and put on medication has been played beautifully. To be honest, I wasn’t a fan in the beginning but he has grown into an amazing actor playing such a powerful story arc and deserves the award for that reason.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Comes Home as Jason and Carly Begin Their Wedding Night

Monday’s episode of General Hospital continued to set the stage for major payoffs in the long and winding road tale of everyone in Port Charles believing Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is dead.

Only now, with his memory in tact, Sonny is very much alive, no longer living as “Mike” in Nixon Falls. and back in the town which he ruled as the mob kingpin.  Problem is: his wife, Carly (Laura Wright) just got married to his best friend, Jason (Steve Burton) and they are about to have their first night together as newlyweds.  And without all the subplot and subtext, Sonny has no idea that they were first brought together to be a united front to save Sonny’s territory from the ‘Five Families’.  Only now, the two have admitted they truly are in-love with each other.

In story, after the bomb that went off was proven to kill mobsters Buscema and Novak, and not its intended target – the newlyweds – thanks to a double-cross from Ms. Wu – Jason, Carly, and Ms. Wu discuss Cyrus Renault’s (Jeff Kober) involvement and that Wu is happy for Jason and Carly.

 

At the wedding reception, Michael (Chad Duell) gives a touching speech about his mom and Jason and gives the official toast.  Later, Jason and Carly head out after Carly throws the bouquet which Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) catches.

Meanwhile, back in Nixon Falls, Sonny gets out of dodge and away from Nina (Cynthia Watros), thanks to Jax’s (Ingo Rademacher) plane, while Nina gets a visit from Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna (Finola Hughes), where she admits that Peter (Wes Ramsey) was in Nixon Falls, and caused the fire, and is going to go after Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and the baby.  She does not tell them what she did keeping Sonny away from his family for 9 months.

Anna and Peter split up to find Peter, and Peter’s exit ride hasn’t show up yet to get him out of Nixon Falls, so Anna catches him, gun drawn.

Later at the Corinthos home, Jason and Carly are alone together in the bedroom with wedding night jitters, but Jason says there is no rush as the two kiss, just as Sonny arrives home, smiles, looks around, sees photos of himself with Carly and the family, and heads upstairs!

Will Sonny find the two in each others arms and not tell then he is alive?  Will something call him away? Will Jason and Carly have sex? When will Nina get payback for all that she has done to Carly and Sonny?  Will Peter get away from Anna? Let us know your theories in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
