Tuesday morning, Leslie Jones along with Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, Tatiana Maslany and television Academy chairman and CEO Frank Scherma announced the nominations for the 72nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

The award presentation (which will most likely be produced and given-out virtually due to COVID-19, although no final decision has been revealed) is set to air on Sunday night, September 20th live on ABC and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, who will also serve as the shows executive producer along with Reginald Hudlin.

Netflix leads the nominations with 160 nods, followed by HBO with 107 nominations.

I am Shocked absolutely stunned that Tom Pelphrey was not nominated for Ozark he was the reason to watch season three! Indeed a head scratcher.

Really was hoping for Better Things to get nominated along with Pamela Adlon, though I do believe Better Things is in a category all it’s own.

You’re probably one of the very few mortals who watches Yellowstone. It’s a good show, but it got buried on that Paramount network that most of the cable companies moved into the high priced digital tiers, once the channel morphed over from “Spike TV”.

Now that the first two seasons are streaming on Peacock, I’m thinking they might find a new audience. If they put the third season on there soon, they might actually get some nominations next year. (No spoilers, I haven’t seen Season 3 yet myself, but I plan to remedy that situation within the next week or two)

Lindsay Hartley On Temporarily Replacing GH’s Kelly Monaco: “Some Big Shoes To Fill … Precious Too.”

When General Hospital returned to shooting new episodes amid the coronavirus pandemic, Sam McCall looked a bit different temporarily and that’s because the role was played for a bit by soap veteran Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Passions, All My Children, and Days of our Lives).

Hartley has been subbing for series star, Kelly Monaco (Sam) and according to Daytime Confidential is filling in only for a few weeks in the role,

Lindsay tweeted when the news broke: “Some big shoes to fill…precious too. I hope you enjoy watching Sam as much as I have enjoyed playing her, temporarily.”

In addition on Friday, Monaco’s mom, took to Twitter and informed a fan of Kelly’s the status of her daughter’s health which was good news that she will be back (as it looks as of now) on Monday to tape new episodes of GH,

Carmina Monaco shared:”Kelly is great and should be back on set Monday. 14 day quarantine after a breathing problem with mask 1st day back. 3 negative Covid test, I’d say she is better than great. Thank you for all of the love,”

GH fans are eagerly awaiting new episodes of the long-running ABC daytime drama series to begin airing, and they won’t have to wait much longer as this coming Monday, August 3rd, the story picks back up.

We look forward to Kelly’s return to the series in the role she made soap-famous, while Lindsay takes over to keep the character present in the storylines.

So, what do you think of Lindsay being the temp recast for Kelly? Glad to know Kelly is doing OK? Share your thoughts below.
