WOW! What a category. I have to go with Genie Francis. Her scenes in response to LuLu’s coma was the best acting by a male or female soap actor this past season. Nancy Lee Grahn is a VERY close second…

The Emmy will go to Genie Francis – GENERAL HOSPITAL!
Top-notch acting in all her scenes with all her acting partners… this past year.
It’s hers for the WIN. And, no Anthony Geary required. lol

It’s crazy that Genie only has 4 nominations! This is only her 2nd Lead Actress nomination – her first was way back in 1997! She won for GH for 2006, and her only other nomination was for Y&R for 2011. It would be wonderful if she were to win this year! But I am also rooting for Nancy Lee Grahn!

…Ms. Francis should have won in 2012 as Cane’s mother Genevieve on Young and Restless.

@Jamesj75 – Thanks for finding humour in my little joke there. Genie Francis is a Queen of Daytime in her own right. And, she is being recognised for it… it’s a long time coming.

Completely, AGREE !!!! Ms. Francis red carpets , with ALL due respect. I AM completely, gobsmacked that NOT ONE @DAYS of OUR Lives got a nomination. STUNNING PORTRAITS this past year. Most notably, Linsey Godfrey AND Stacey Haiduk… ( the return of Rachel ) Bar none- Genie Francis , just got pegged up that much more… none of the other nominees even got mention, or standout. Laura has been carrying a lot of Port charles… so why not. WOW

STUPEFIED … what ?

It was literally the worst year EVER for DAYS OF OUR LIVES in terms of acting and writing. The cast from those Progressive Insurance commercials featured more compelling drama than DAYS.

I’m beyond thrilled for Genie Francis, one of the all-time soap icons! The first time she’s been nominated for GH in 14 years, when she won for Best Supporting Actress. They don’t always write well for her, but they gave her some juicy material with Lulu going into the coma, and she knocked it out of the park, as she always does when they give her the material. What a great story her winning would be after the disgraceful way the show treated her a couple of years ago. Nancy is always good, but Finola would be my second choice… Read more »

I have to agree with those below on the lead actress category. Genie Francis will get this one IMO.

I am torn between Genie Francis and Nancy Lee Grahn for the win!!! Genie had such memorable scenes when Nikolas came back from the dead (her confrontation scene was amazing!), Lulu’s being injured by the bombing, and learning that Cyrus and Martin were her half-brothers. Nancy had such memorable scenes surrounding the deaths of her new boyfriend and Julian, her alcoholism, and her relationships with her daughters. Finola had the Anna/Alex scenes, the evolving Peter drama, and her relationship with Finn. I really want a GH actress to win, a snap of the 4 years in a row of CBS… Read more »

I think Chelsea will win next year for her now infamous meltdown/confession to Michael Baldwin and the psychiatrist for Rey’s poisoning.

I am more than thrilled to see Genie Francis on this list. She never fails to deliver. I am disappointed not to see Sharon Case’s name on the roster this year.

Sharon Case hasn’t received an Emmy nomination in 17 years. I think it’s safe to say she has fallen out of favor with the Emmy panel.

I cried like a baby during some of the “Laura scenes” when Lulu was in the hospital. Especially when Laura saw Tracy, ran to hug her and wept. I’m delighted 3 GH ladies are nominated but I would love to see Genie win.

Chelsea, Melissa Claire Egan, was fantastic in her portrayal as the paralyszed poisoner.

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
