Will we see Emmy reels this year?

The one performer who I MOST want to see on the nominee’s list for her work in 2021 is Kirsten Storms as Maxie on General Hospital. I will be really disappointed if her name is missing (unless she didn’t submit for recognition, of course). I don’t know if she would be in lead or supporting, a case could be made for either category. Her work during the Peter August/baby switch storyline, especially the scene where she finally told Peter (“Henrik”) what she really thinks of him after the birth of her baby when they meet at the hospital was simply the best scene of 2021 for me. Kirsten has somehow only been nominated once before and she deserves recognition for her outstanding work in 2021.

I’ll just stick to who should be the nominees from GH (based on performance in calendar year 2021)

Younger Performer (gender neutral category):
Nicholas Chavez (Spencer)
Sydney Mikayla (ex-Trina)

Guest Performer (gender neutral):
Lydia Look (Selina)
Robert Gossett (Marshall)

Supporting Actor:
James Patrick Stuart (Valentin)
Kin Shriner (Scott)
Wally Kurth (Ned)

Supporting Actress:
Amanda Setton (Brook Lynn)
Kelly Thiebaud (Britt)
Brook Kerr (Portia)

Lead Actor:
Maurice Benard (Sonny – think it’s mandatory)
Who else fits here? Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) had an off year, Michael Easton, Roger Howarth and Dominic Zamprogna didn’t do much. Steve Burton could sneak in.

Lead Actress:
Kirsten Storms (Maxie – not supporting)
Finola Hughes (Anna)
Cynthia Watros (Nina)
An off year for Genie and Maura

Michael Easton and Josh Swickard deserve nominations for Chase’s paternity/Chase’s poisoning and then for Easton the “killing” of Peter and for Chase the being paralyzed and dealing with Willow and Michael while she was married to Chase.

Genie Francis did wonderful work in the Cyrus Renault storyline. Lisa LoCicero did Emmy worthy work all year with both the Alexis and Leo stories.

I agree with Josh Swickard. Maybe it’s just the character, but Finn always seems to have the same emotion. That said, I could see a nomination, but I think lead actor is the one category where GH gets only one nomination.

The Cyrus reveal wrapped up at the end of 2020, which is before the nomination period. Otherwise, Genie took a 5 month break (well earned).

LiLo did some good work indeed.

Next years awards are going to be tough for GH. Kinda hard for any of your contract players to get nominated when all the key parts of their storylines were played by temp hires.

That’s funny because I wanted to put Lindsay Hartley in the guest performer category. She made me pay attention to Sam for the first time in years.

I always look forward to hearing the nominees, but not enough to hear it on this awful show. I will wait to see it from Michael Fairman!!!

Deidre Hall hasn’t been an Emmy nominee since the 80’s. She certainly deserves one this year. Kimberlin Brown was nominated one in the 90’s. Let’s give these vets the recognition they deserve.

Trevor St. John Announces His Departure from The Young and the Restless

In a shocker, Trevor St. John revealed on Tuesday that he is leaving the cast of The Young and the Restless and his role as Tucker McCall.

The popular actor took to his account on X and in a series of posts said his “thank you’s” and bid farewell to the top-rated soap opera.

St. John shared, “As you well know, Tuckers come and Tuckers go, and so the cycle continues… this Tucker is in his go phase… I thank each and every member of the wonderful cast, the crew, the directors, the producers and production staff, and CBS/Sony for the great experience from day one to the last. I feel so fortunate to have played such a terrific role.”

Trevor continued: “Most importantly, I want to offer my heartfelt gratitude to you the (Y&R) fans. THANK YOU!” Tucker might be gone for the time being, but I’m not going anywhere. I’ve got projects in the works, and if you haven’t seen my film, A Good Enough Day, it’s now available to stream for free on Tubi!”

The news of his exit comes just two years shy of his time on The Young and the Restless.  St. John made his Genoa City debut in September of 2022 as the new Tucker, last played by Days of our Lives, Stephen Nichols (Steve). The role was first played by actor William Russ.

No word from St. John or Y&R as to when his last episode will air on the top-rated soap opera.  In story, Tucker is losing his company to a takeover by Audra and Victor, while Ashley is finally getting help she needs after her personality split.

So, what do you think about Trevor’s departure from Y&R? Comment below.
