I miss Cynthia Watros as Kelly on GH..
Dixie (she always acts Dixie/stereotyped) is not cutting it for me, she just could not replace Cynthia Watros..
I will tune in just see Cynthia Watros, it looks good .. I might even like it!!

You are nuts, Cady is way better in the role of Kelly. Cynthia was miscast, but Cynthia was great on Guiding Light as Nurse Annie.

There’s no way in hell Cynthia was miscast. She was magnificent as Kelly. Tortured, vulnerable, the works. Get a clue.

I’ve always loved Cady, but I think that Cynthia Watros brought a vulnerability to Kelly that just seems to be missing from Cady’s performance here. I blame the wonderful Jon Lindstrom for this – Cady’s just too damn happy to play the tortured Kelly!

I hope this does really well for Cynthia. She’s s tremendous actress and deserves prime time success!

I wish she was still Kelly on Y&R. Cady MacLaine is miscast in the role and isn’t bringing it. They should have created a new character for her instead I think.

Kudos to Cynthia on her new adventure <3

I love Cynthia Watros, best of luck to her on her new show. I loved crazy Annie Dutton on Guiding Light, Cynthia is a wonderful actress. Cady Mcclain what can you say, I love her as Kelly Andrews. Sorry to say this Lainey, but Cynthia was not right, for the role as Kelly. Cady is rocking it, She also is a terrific actress. Actually both of them are wonderful ladies, they sure can act. I prefer Cady, in the role of Kelly.

Maybe different but sounds like a reworking of Switched At Birth where a young girl learns she wasnt raised by her real mother and had to integrate into the family she never knew she had…only difference is that S.A.B. involved two girls and both had to make the adjustment…so, been there, done that…ill pass!!!

I miss her as kelly Cady McClain isn’t cutting it and I love Cady! She was so good as Rosanna on ATWT.

I liked Cynthia as Kelly, too.
Not hating Cady as Kelly, but just
not connecting with her, either.
Since Cynthia left, the character
of Kelly just seems kind of pointless
now.

Cady McClain is attractive, talented, sweet, and so.

In my opinion, she was a better replacement of Cynthia Watros than someone else was.

I like her as the new Kelly on Y&R. Jack Abbott finally has a woman who is hot and wants to be with him.

I still think by all intents & purposes JFP wanted to cast her as the Nu-Phyllis but for whatever reason they thought Stafford was coming back. I did prefer her take on the Kelly character but I blame the writers more then the actress they just did a total 180 on the character. As they are doing with Billy and brother Jack neither has any edge anymore they are just bland.

Y&R should change to black lipstick.

I liked her as Annie Dutton on GL. I even liked her as Kelly Andrews on Y&R.

But, I think that she fits perfectly well for the role of Elizabeth Stevens on “Finding Carter”.

How Great is Cynthia Watros on her new show. She is amazing. Watching Finding Carter just for her.

PRIMETIME EMMYS: Soap Alums Murray Bartlett and Amanda Seyfried Take Home Acting Honors

The 74th annual Primetime Emmys were handed out Monday night during a three-hour telecast on NBC and streaming on Peacock.

When the dust settled two former daytime stars, who have gone found much success in television and film, took home the gold in their respective categories.

Murray Bartlett (ex-Cyrus, Guiding Light) won the Emmy for his role as Armond in The White Lotus in the Best Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.

In his acceptance speech, Murray expressed many thanks: “To my P-Town family, I love you, to my partner Matt, thank you for being my sanctuary .. and finally I want to thank my mom all the way home in Australia for giving me the most wonderful foundation of unconditional love and inspiring me to believe that we can all do that for each other.”

Later in the evening, Amanda Seyfried (ex-Lucy, ATWT and ex-Joni , AMC) won the Best Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her performance in The Dropout.  In the Hulu limited series, which is based on the ABC News podcast of the same name, Seyfried portrays disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes.

In a major moment during the ceremony, Sheryl Lee Ralph won her first Emmy ever for her role in Abbott Elementary in the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category.

Ralph became only the second black actress to win in the supporting actress category in 35 years – the first being none other than Days of our Lives’ Jackée Harry (Paulina) who won for her performance in 1987 for 227.

After Sheryl sang when she hit the stage to accept the award, she clarified what she was singing about adding: “I’ve been singing that song for years because I think of myself as an artist as a woman, especially as a woman of color … I’m an endangered species. I don’t sing any victim song. I’m a woman. I’m an artist, and I know where my voice belongs. And there’s so many young actors, artists, even kids that think they know what they’re going to do in life, find your voice and put it where it belongs.”

In an historic Emmy-win, The Squid Game’s Lee Jung-jae became the first actor in a non-English series to win iLead Actor in a Drama Series category for his work in Netflix’s South Korean smash hit.

Lizzo shared: “I’m very emotional. The trophy is nice, but my emotion is for these people who are on the stage with me. The stories that they shared, they’re not that unique. They just don’t get the platform. Telling stories, let’s just tell more stories. When I was a little girl, all I wanted to see was me in the media, someone fat like me, Black like me, beautiful like me.  If I could go back and tell little Lizzo something, I’d be like, ‘You’re going to see that person, but Bitch, it’s gonna have to be you.’”

In the top show categories: Succession won Drama Series, Ted Lasso, Comedy Series and The White Lotus, Outstanding Limited Series. You can check out the full winners circle in all categories here.

Now, let us know, who you were most excited seeing take home the gold statuette during the 74th Primetime Emmys via the comment section. But first check out, Murray, Amanda, Sheryl Lee and Lizzo’s winning moments below.
