Now here’s a very clever way to utilize network television promotional synergy! With the Academy Awards just one week away airing next Sunday February 26th on ABC, the cast of General Hospital has taken on memorable moments from the nine nominated Best Pictures!

First up on Friday was a take-off on Arrival with Hayley Erin (Kiki) taking on the Amy Adams role, and Matt Cohen (Griffin) taking on the Jeremy Renner role.

Then posted on Saturday was a take-off from a scene from Fences featuring Anthony Montgomery (Andre) and Donnell Turner (Curtis). The film stars Oscar nominees Denzel Washington and Viola Davis.

The other remaining Oscar-nominated Best Pictures include: Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Hidden Figures, LA LA Land, Lion, Manchester by the Sea, and Moonlight. Will GH reveal seven more video nuggets? If so, which actors do you hope will be in which take-off from which film?

Watch GH’s salute to the Oscar-nominated Best Pictures after the jump, and then let us know what you think of the concept, and more!

DAYS did this back in 2011 for their July 4th ep. They used the actors to put them into Academy Award nominated movies, spoofing them of course- EJ was in the King’s Speech with his British accent trying to make him American, Chad was in the Social Network, Melanie and Bo were in True Grit and there were a few more. It was funny.

I’m hoping the Nurse Amy Vining does the opening monologue from Manchester by the Sea on what it means to be a man. It can’t be any worse than Lesser Batfleck’s somnambulant performance. What a snooze fest that movie was! 2.5 hours of unrelieved tedium. And it’s got an ambivalent ending; if ambivalence is the end point, then can we wrap it up in ninety minutes instead? Asking for a friend….

Unfortunately, the actress who played Amy Vinning died many years ago.

For Moonlight–Genie Francis and Jon Lindstrom. Does anyone else remember all the “take offs” GH used to do? Remember Laura, Scotty, and Luke (yes, I dared say that name–LOL) doing a great take off in Hollywood? And Lois and Ned? Was so much fun!

Nancy… About vintage Laura and Luke. On the weekend CNN was airing one of their documentaries on the 80’s which included what was happening on tv. They mentioned the popularity of soap operas, highlighted Laura and Luke’s big wedding, and how many millions watched. They even had an interview with Genie at the time…I forget the network. I know we have to be “careful” about mentioning hairdos, but her’s was long and ” crimped” (not sure if this is they right word or not). She looked wonderful.

Oh, wish I had seen that, Rose! Maybe they’ll play it again–or I can find it online.
Thanks, again!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

So, what do you think of Carly and Sonny getting close? What did you think of the performances of Laura Wright, Steve Burton, Cynthia Watros, and Donnell Turner within this episode? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
