She is in my top 3! Kathryn Hays and Robin Strasser are also in my top 3 of all time! I really hope Maura wins her 4th Emmy on the 26th! (:

I absolutely loved Maura West and Arianne Zucker and will be ecstatic if either of them win! They were on FIRE! (: Finola Hughes is fine but underwhelming, and I really didn’t like either of the B&B women’s scenes. I will be really disappointed if the winner isn’t Maura or Ari – I am hoping for a tie! I truly do not understand why so many are rooting for Katherine Kelly Lang. What bothers me about her is that her scenes are always endless repeats – deja vu – I have seen her fights with Ridge, Taylor and Katie a… Read more »

Who should win? Stacy Haiduk. How the eff is she not nominated?
Who will win? Arianne Zucker, who did a fantastic job playing Nicole and Kristen as Nicole. I could say the breathtaking Maura West every year, but that hardly seems fair!

it’d be great to see Arianne Zucker and/or Katherine Kelly Lang take home, because they are over due… no question this is a lack luster list. so it’s by process of elimination… my own Heather Tom is unmentionable’ WHY ? that 1/2 hour show… and/or all 19 minutes of it… can KEEP her. too much air time and we’d be all over her Maura West… you are on a lackluster … dullard focus…no writing… they can’t even drum up any focus eps like Y&R to emmy shoot. Finola Hughes : You are so boring…. !!!! w/Finn AND Peter… PERIOD no… Read more »

It’s a no-brainer–Maura West—a trillion times over!! This superlative thespian is a chameleon. Her rendition of any character is perfected from A to Z. No diamond in the rough, she!!

I would have to say Maura West, although I am not an Ava fan. I think Finola was cheated through no fault of her own, by getting her so involved with Peter, Finn and Robert with nothing ever really coming of their relationships, but boredom.

I am not an Ava fan–certainly am not! And I am not a fan of West’s acting–I find it overblown and histrionic, Violet. I AM a fan of Finola–always, but, unfortunately, I am not a fan of her storyline with Peter; it renders her weak and gullible. She is much better with Tristan Rogers (Robert); their quips and improvisations are always funny and exciting. They, like Genie, can do a lot by raising one eyebrow! 🙂

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
