Wonder why Elizabeth Moss as June in the Handmaids Tale was left out as leading actress. Especially since almost every other category has an actor from this incredible series as one of its nominees.

I know, Rose. It’s similar to a movie winning Best Picture (like “Driving Miss Daisy”) without the Director getting even a nomination. I also can’t believe the excellent Finn Wittrock wasn’t nominated for “Ratched”. The guy is a great actor and even turns a plain white T-shirt into an aphrodisiac.

Wow, Sterling K. Brown is acknowledged again for staring his way through the season, while the wonderful Justin Hartley and Chrissy Metz are overlooked. At least the magnificent Gillian Anderson is up for THE CROWN and the spellbinding THE QUEEN’S GAMBIT is getting recognized. Josh O’Connor should win for not only a series of great performances but for doing the impossible — making Prince Charles sexy.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.

Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”
