I hope GH submitted a dramatic episode as the other show they were able to submit for consideration, to balance things out. Like the show when Oscar died. I absolutely loved the Christmas Carol show, but I seem to recall them not doing too well in the past when they submitted gimmicky episodes, like the years when they submitted shows from the Nurses Ball. The years they won for Best Drama, I think it was for more dramatic, emotional material. I don’t know that the “variety show” type stuff plays that well with the Emmy voters.

I am really disappointed that GH submitted the Christmas carol episode as one of it’s two episodes; the other episode, Oscar’s death, was the very best episode on daytime last year. I am hoping GH can win despite such a poor second episode selection. I get depressed at how many people are predicting Y&R, which submitted two episodes from Neil’s death. The show was mostly awful in 2019 – a mess – and I resent it went shows get rewarded for choosing a strong reel despite having had a poor year overall. I hope it doesn’t win and would be… Read more »

I don’t see anyone beating Y&R for Best Drama! Kristoff St. John’s death is STILL rocking the daytime world PLUS Y&R did a great job writing out his character.

If it were solely based on the clip released, Young & Restless by a landslide. Peter Bergman and Eileen Davidson shine in those scenes. So natural, so moving, such emotion — what daytime drama does best.

Thank God I missed that ep. @GH certainly has made B&B and DAYS look that much better. which isn’t much who ever for gods sake would watch a whole hour of ???? “PUSH !!! ” and then see her COMA’d. which is certainly what would have happened sooner w/watching Jenny Bear… come to .. after a year long lapse…. and/or sleep… who wanted more COMA’d for Jenny Bear…… Read more »

Who should win? DAYS. The time jump breathed fresh air into the show and into the genre. The payoffs continue.
Who will win? Y&R because the Neil episodes they submitted were gold, but they were the only bright spot in a year when the writing on this show hit a devastating rock bottom from which it has not risen.

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?
