Did Obba Babatundé's Performance On Tuesday's B&B Just Score Him His Next Daytime Emmy?

Courtesy/CBS

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Obba Babatundé was just named the Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series at Sunday’s 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

Obba won the gold for his scenes where Julius and his transgender daughter Maya (Karla Mosley) have a major confrontation at Maya and Rick’s (Jacob Young) wedding.

Now, comes another stirring and memorable performance that should be remembered come Emmy time next year!  The action happened on Tuesday’s episode of B&B.  The set up has that Nicole (Reign Edwards) has learned that Sasha (Felisha Cooper) is her biological sister, and that Julius is their father, but Vivienne (Anna Maria Horsford) is not Sasha’s mother.   This happens when Sasha spills the beans to Nicole in a confrontation over the man in their life, Zende (Rome Flynn).

Now alone with Julius, Nicole lets him have it for his deception, and Julius in tears explains to Nicole how he was driven to another woman, which seems to have stemmed from Myron (now Maya) and Vivienne turning his back on him years ago, and turning to someone else for comfort, or so he explains.   In these scenes both Obba and Reign Edwards brought the drama in compelling performances.

Later, after promising to set the record straight with Vivienne before Nicole does, Julius instead goes to confront Sasha. He lets her know how he took care of her, and how me made sure Vivienne was in her life. But now that she betrayed him, by revealing the one thing he asked her not to do and to keep quiet about, Julius bascially tells her he doesn’t want her as part of the family.  With one tear streaming down his face, and defiant and hurt, it was Obba at his best.

Watch the scene between Sasha and Julius after the jump, and make sure to catch the episode and the scene between Nicole and Julius.   Then let us know, will Obba make it a two-peat at next yeat’s Daytime Emmys?

It was a great performance. Can’t say enough about Obba. But don’t forget Sasha and Nicole…they have been very good as well. Helps being in scenes with a really good actor…rubs off.

I replayed the last 3 minutes of yesterday’s B&B to observe Babatunde’s masterful handling of his scene with Sasha. What he did in those few moments was really special, true artistry! Felt really fortunate to be watching…

It is not easy to portray a jerk, yet evoke a bit of sympathy for the character at the same time, and he did that with the scenes that won him an Emmy and he has done it again with these scenes. Actually his character is one of more complex ones to come along on B&B, normally Brad’s characters are pretty shallow and one dimensional, but this character has layers and this actor knows how to reveal them slowly and with restraint– so he is jerk, but he is a jerk for a reason and that is refreshing on any… Read more »

I always love the scenes Obba does—he really knows how to chew scenery but this was definitely his best day yet. What had to have helped was the 2 young ladies he was acting opposite with because they were very good in their scenes with him too so that must have added that extra punch he needed to wow us with his performance. This has been one story that I have been interested in from the beginning.

Today’s episode should be good as well.

And yes, very impressed with Reign and Felisha. And Anna is always good!

I can’t believe this man had me in tears! I truly believed his performance as if it was life imitating art. Wow! Standing O, but you’re still a jerk, ;).

Anna, Reign and Felisha were brilliant in their performances. I appreciate the writers/director for choosing to give these women the normal and realistic reaction to a difficult and hurtful situation that no one wants to deal with.

Lori Loughlin To Make Holiday Movie For Great American Family

Lori Loughlin (Ex-EON and Full House) will be making a holiday movie for Great American Family. Look for production to start later this year.

The announcement of the upcoming Christas pic follows on the heels of Loughlin’s Fall Into Winter which dropped on January 28th on GAF.

The movie marked Lori’s first romantic comedy screen appearance since serving time in 2020 for her part in the college admissions scandal. She returned to acting after her prison time, and after being let go by the Hallmark Channel in When Hope Calls which was a spinoff of When Calls the Heart.

Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media had previously shared: “Lori is a genre-defining star that I have had the honor to call a close friend and collaborator for more than 15 years. We have a shared vision for creating meaningful and memorable movies that resonate with our passionate fans, and I look forward to welcoming her back to Great American Family to anchor our 2023 winter programming slate.”

So what do you think of a Lori Loughlin/Great American Family holiday film on the way for later in 2023? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
