I am rooting for Eden McCoy because Oscar’s death was so incredibly moving and everyone performed at their very best throughout the story. But Olivia Rose Keegan and Katelyn MacMullen were wonderful too! Keegan may have an advantage in that she’s the only one who doesn’t cry crocodile tears at some point in her full reel. I don’t care for Thia Megia and Sasha Calle all that much and wouldn’t be pleased if they were to win.

I am really unhappy with the merging of the categories; William Lipton and Garen Stitt really ought to have been in contention for an Emmy this year for Best Younger Actor, with the latter my choice for his superb performances.

Agree that the merging of the categories is sad. Who thought of such a stupid move? Yes we have 5 nice performances by females that were selected but there were an equal number of males including William Lipton and Garen Stitt as you stated. However, what about the heartfelt performance of Scott Clifton, the manipulative and tense performance by Matthew Atkinson as Thomas and the excellent, cute and haunting performance by Henry Joseph Samiri as Douglas when he strongly reveals that Phoebe is Baby Beth? I am very disappointed with the Academy. Bring the other category back next year and make an apology to the fans!

Scott Clifton is way over 25! He has won Supporting Actor and Actor since he aged out of the category. How old is Matthew Atkinson? If he is under 25 I would agree that he was an excellent choice!

Agree that Scott Clifton and Matthew Atkinson are not in that category but should have got Best Supporting Actor nods. We need more categories –not less.

I couldn’t agree more, the merging of the categories is a joke. One of those occasions where NATAS tried to fix something that wasn’t broken. William Lipton and Garren Stitt both got robbed of a nomination. I was floored when I read the list of nominations and neither one of their names was on it.

Tough category and a reminder of how good Gerren Stitt was as Oscar. By the way, the young man playing opposite Steve Burton in his scene was strong, too. Watching Sasha Calle reminds me of how dumb the sudden return of Kyle to Summer is, and that Michael Mealor is a good actor, too. But unexpectedly, I think in this grouping Thia Megia’s clip reads strongest. Quiet, understated but emotionally impactful, and she has the gift of letting her face act along with the words.

No Matter how you dish… who what where when or why? “My” Ms. Olivia Rose Keegan… FLIES to the Emmys NOMINATED ! three years best

there’s no need to mention fellow nominee

@Days of OUR Lives , has triumphed with

Agree!

Who should win? It’s a tough call between Katelyn MacMullen and Eden McCoy. I give a slight edge to MacMullen, who was rock solid all year, but when you consider how young McCoy is, what she’s done is remarkable. I would be thrilled to see either of them win. Honourable mention to Sasha Calle, who suffered from the white supremacy of Y&R fans & show-runners and had some of the worst writing I have ever seen on a soap, but she really made the best of it.

Who will win? Olivia Rose Keegan.

Jason George Returning to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Main Cast for Upcoming Season

Soap opera alum Jason George (ex-Michael Bourne, Sunset Beach) is rejoining Grey’s Anatomy as a series regular for its upcoming 21st season.

According to Deadline, Jason will reprise his signature role of Ben Warren. Previously, the actor played Ben since season 6 of the ABC medical drama. Later, George became a series regular for seasons 12-14 before departing to join the ‘Grey’s’ spinoff, Station 19.

With Station 19 now canceled, it paved the way for George to bring Ben back to Seattle Grey’s Sloan. Over the past seven years, Jason was a mainstay on the firefighter drama and would make appearances and crossover to “Grey’s’.  Both series are produced by Shondaland and ABC signature.

In story, the seventh season of Station 19 had Ben tapping leaning into his medical skills while questioning his future as a firefighter in light of his shoulder injury. Then, in the Station 19 series finale, Ben told Captain Herrera that he was going back to finish his surgical residency. The story all fits together because when Ben was a fifth year resident at Grey Sloan, he found a way to pursue his other dream as a firefighter without jeopardizing his chances to return to the hospital and medicine one day.

George was featured on NBC’s Sunset Beach from 1997-1999 as lifeguard Michael Bourne and his love interest, Vanessa was played by Sherri Saum (ex-Keri, One Life to Live) who is also the wife of the late Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio, One Life to Live)

In a post on X, following the story of his rejoining Grey’s Anatomy, George posted a video with the music from “Welcome Back Kotter” and the words “Well … it WAS kind of hush-hush. But now it’s official. Where my scrubs at?”

So, glad to hear Jason George is returning as a series regular to Grey’s Anatomy? Comment below.
