It should have been Maura West hosting the luncheon! Oh well, I do wish they would put the whole thing up online for us to enjoy!!! If only Genie and Nancy could tie and both win for their extraordinary work in 2020!!!!

Well, for me, there’s only one choice this year: Genie Francis. What a year! Acting at its peak and a career high for her as well. Melissa was great, too, and is my second choice. The Alexis story seemed like retread — for us and for excellent Nancy. Finola is always good but defending Peter made it hard to watch all her scenes and JMW is (sorry) out of her league here. Sharon Case should have had that slot. GO GENIE!

I would be jumping and down, clapping and overjoyed if Genie Francis were to win! But I would also feel that way about Nancy Lee Grahn. I have been hearing from some people that they are convinced JMW is going to win and I think I will burst into tears if that happens – I really want a GH actress to win this year. They have only won 3 times in the Best Actress category (by contrast, 10 times in the Supporting Actress category!). It is time for another GH actress to win this year! (Kirsten Storms next year, please!)… Read more »

JMW was nothing special even with her addiction story and I’m a B&B fan of 30 years. Heather Tom really takes the cake submitting herself in the lead category all these years when she has never been a lead on this show.

The ladies look so different than when in character.I am so not interested in Alex and Shawn’s new cause they are delving in to about the lady judge.

I think they all are deserving, but my choice goes to the actress whose storyline I enjoyed most compared to the others. So I’m for Genie.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
