Some interesting noms. Some I wouldn’t have included and some I would include are not. Well, good luck to all.

Speaking to the acting nominees related to GH: Lead Actor How is Steve Burton in this category when Jason plays a supporting role to Sonny, to Carly, to Michael and even Sam! Does rescuing Sam for the umpteenth time deserve a nomination? If the nomination period is for calendar year 2019, then Jon Lindstrom was lead for the first few months, but definitely supporting once Ryan was tucked away in Pentonville. He should have beaten Maurice last year in this category. If Jason Thompson doesn’t win, Lindstrom should. Lead Actress The consensus was Maura would walk away with this award… Read more »

Maura West losing last year was one of the biggest travesties I have witnessed in a long time. 2020 will be her redemption.

I hope so but Arianne Zucker was amazing during the fiery scenes where Holly was “dead” (she wasn’t) and she was playing Kristen masquerading as Nicole. Either one would be a great winner!

Zucker is the only other person I’d be happy with winning; also, nice to see you hear, Mr. Griffin, from the YT reunions!

I disagree with you about Rebecca Budig, who didn’t resonate with me at all. Tamara Braun should win for her scenes during and after Oscar’s death, which moved me to tears. and yes, Michael E Knight’s accent alone should disqualify him! But the worst nominees by far are Thaao Penghlis and Thia Megia ):

A lot of good nominations! Some head scratchers, too. But this wouldn’t be the noms without the mix. I am sooo looking forward to seeing the show on CBS! Thank You to CBS for giving our soaps so love.

No Max Gail (GH)!!!, no Stacey Haiduk (DAYS), no Freddie Smith (DAYS), no Suzanne Rodgers (DAYS)!!! no Camila Banus (DAYS). No Cynthia Watros (GH). No Rebecca Herbst (GH).

Powerful performances from Max Gail, Stacey Haiduk, and SUZANNE RODGERS!!

Does Herbst even submit herself for consideration? She’s one of the most underrated actresses in daytime.

I’m not sure who does and doesn’t submit their own work on the soaps. All I know is the soap stars I mentioned (for me) deserved nominations. I don’t know the politics of it all. But, damn, like Suzanne Rodgers (DAYS) has been so brilliant, SO brilliant!

I am happy that The View got a nomination for Best Informative Talk Show!

Freeman Griffin
Guest
Freeman Griffin

I know that Camila Banus and Freddie Smith submitted but I am not sure about the others. I wish we would be provided with the information about who submitted and in which category, and also if we had been given the pre-nominees list. I am worried they will withhold what they submitted.

I do not know if Becky submits or not years ago when we had the Jason hysteria over who he should be it’s Sam or Liz the hysterical fans were so nasty to both actresses I really think it took its toll . She could read the phone book and bring you to tears she is that good. She is like a tiny little porcelain doll with all this emotion and range she should have a mantle full of emmys ! That’s why I just don’t get it so the emmys have for years been disappointing to me!

What a pitiful bunch for lead actor. One-note Steve Burton? Are you kidding me? I honestly can’t choose among them because they all play basically the same note over and over. Maybe Jason Thompson, on days when he chooses to try, but he seems bored to me on Y&R. His fire has somehow been dampened. The only nomination I’m really excited about is Paul Telfer. Probably a long shot but finally there’s once again a villain in daytime that people love to hate. He gives every scene he is in a boost of energy, even finding eyebrow-raising humor in heavy… Read more »

YES YES YES ! ” thank you ” @sonnior… for the “credible” reason… Paul Telfer deserves to be LOVE THE love to hate Villain character.

Mixed feelings as always. Thaao Penghlis is NOT a lead actor! He was a guest performer, on for very few episodes, and not very good imo. I am only happy with Jon Lindstrom and Jason Thompson in Best Actor, rooting for Jon to win. Roger Howarth deserved to win for 2019 – did he submit? I love Maura West and Arianne Zucker for Best Actress – either would make me happy. I do not understand why they love Heather Tom so much – she already has 5 Emmys, and that is plenty – enough already! Where is Camila Banus? Disappointing.… Read more »

There are some really surprising names on this list. I only watch GH, so that’s the only show I can comment on. I love Finola Hughes, but she was away from GH for a good part of the year, and I honestly can’t think of anything all that great that she did. Mostly due to the total butcher job the writers have done on the Anna Devane character. Rebecca Budig, she was back for what, like a month? Steve Burton as Lead Actor, all due respect to Steve, but no. No Max Gail is a travesty. I know he won… Read more »

I clearly, agree; Maura West and Jon Lindstrom , were robbed

this years echelon , dim cheer ?

for best actor’ : I’ve only read about Jason Thompson… we have long memory

Thaao Penghlis WOULD BE shoot out of the dark… way better than Burton, Kaye. NOT EVEN worth word just don’t

the other one Jon , getting his just due ! take it back from Maurice

Heather Tom is not a lead actress on B&B she shows up for a two week crisis that’s it, for me I would be happy if Lang won she has been on that show for 30 years as for lead actor who cares not happy with any choices MG/ Adam he ate up the show for a year and yet he puts himself in supporting the same with the actress who plays Hope ate the show up and yet the actress put herself in supporting this is exactly why the award show is a mess

BEST NEWS EVER !

Maurice Benard – AND – Laura Wright ARE NOT nominated

YES ! rejoice that Carly and Sonny continue to drag General Hospital down

How on earth could they have left out Max Gail?! HIs portrayal of Mike Corbin has been amazing – touching, realistic and heartfelt. He’s an enormous talent, and provided such insight into the sad and devastating effects of Alzheimer’s. Max, you were robbed.

Heather Tom is not a Lead Actress Please!!!!she comes on and does a crisis story for two weeks and gone the rest of the year. KKL please hand the Emmy to her she has basically carried the show for thirty years and she is a decent actress liked by her peers in fact I have never heard a unkind word about her ever. Concerning the rest I have no opinion because I have not been invested and think the shows are all struggling . I still think it is a popularity contest .

Kevin C

K/kay, I totally agree about KKL, so long overdue and I so hope she finally wins an Emmy…Regarding Heather Tom, she is one of my if not top favorite actress ever, IMO Heather is a powerhouse performer but I feel the same about KKL, love them both…

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Soap Veteran Michael Tylo Passes Away at 73

Michael Tylo, well-remembered for his roles on daytime soap operas, has died at the age of 73.  Tylo, was most-loved in his role as Quinton Chamberlain, in the Quint and Nola (Lisa Brown) romance on Guiding Light, as well for his time on The Bold and the Beautiful (Ex-Sherman), All My Children (Ex-Matt), The Young and the Restless (Ex-Rick/Blade), Another World (Ex-Lord Peter Belton), and General Hospital (Ex-Charlie).

Tylo’s death was announced by Nancy Uscher, Dean of College of Fine Arts at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where Michael was a film professor.  Michael died on Tuesday at Henderson Hospital in Henderson, Nevada, following an illness.

In a statement on the UNLV website, Uscher said of her colleague: “Michael Tylo was a beautiful and caring human being — he was so special.  He was an exemplary friend, colleague, teacher, and artist. He had such a distinguished and rich career, but he was humble about his accomplishments. He loved his family dearly and lived a joyous life, but he left us way too soon. We will miss him greatly, but feel deep gratitude about all that Michael contributed to the College of Fine Arts, UNLV, and the world.”

As soap fans know, Michael was previously married to Hunter Tylo (Taylor, B&B) and they shared three children together: Izabelle and Katya, and tragically, their late son, Mickey, who drowned back in 2007.

Michael is also survived by his wife Rachelle, and their daughter, Kollette.
