When every you talk to any actor or actress in daytime they are always blown away by the talent of Jane Elliot of General Hospital.  Jane is as good as it gets!  And this past week, Elliot landed a nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category for this year’s 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards!

But what is stunning about this, and hard to believe, is that the last time Jane won in this category was 1981, that was 33 years ago! And more intriguing was this is the first time in 20 years that she allowed herself to even be submitted in the competition!

So how come now Jane decided its time to enter the fray again?   Here’s what she told TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan on what went down:  “As usual, I said no and (GH executive producer) Frank Valentini put his foot down and would not take no for an answer. That is how much he believes in me, how much he cares. I have never had a producer go out of his or her way to support me the way Frank does. (Former GH executive producer) Gloria Monty refused to submit me for the Emmy the year I won, so I submitted myself just because I was so pissed that she refused to do it! Frank is the only one who ever said, ‘You’ll be submitted this year, whether you like it or not. It’s not up for discussion.’ And, so, here we are. Submitting myself for awards feels like a weird kind of horn-blowing that’s not comfortable for me. I’m really happy when someone likes my work but I don’t like marketing myself, putting myself on display. For an actor, I’m an odd duck. So I don’t know what to tell you. Ooh! (Laughs) Yes I do know what I can tell you! Deidre Hall broke her arm so I don’t know who’s going to do my roots for the Emmys.”

So, do you think this could be the year that Jane Elliot finally takes home the gold? Do you think as many do, Jane Elliot is the gold standard for soap actresses? Let us know!

Jane Elliot is locked in for the win. She is one of the best actresses in the genre IMO. I am so happy that Frank Valentini made her submit herself this year.

She is one of my favorites i hope will win…my only problem with Tracy…a smart business woman…blinded by love…doesnt realize there is something not right about Luke!!!

Being a good business woman doesnt necessarily make you a good at relationships. Tracy is older, her choices are dwindling, but most of all, she loves Luke and when you love someone you tend to look beyond the obvious.

Some actors may not care about winning awards but just wants to do the best job he or she can do.So Jane Elliot might be that kind of actress but i’m happy Frank Valentini made her submit this year.Plus i think she has a good chance of winning this year.

if it means… every actor on the 4 remaining shows… should submit… to over ride… CBS’ block voting… with 2 shows… versus one each for ABC and NBC.

Miss AJ

back to Jane Elliott : celebrate your show. you make it (acting) look so easy, natural, and a heck of a good time.

” “As usual, I said no and (GH executive producer) Frank Valentini put his foot down and would not take no for an answer. That is how much he believes in me, how much he cares. I have never had a producer go out of his or her way to support me the way Frank does. ”

Way to go Frank !!! You are love by many !!

Very happy for Jane. She deserves whatever recognition she gets. Anything she’s been given to work with over the years, good storyline, bad storyline, whatever the case might be, she’s always brought it 110% every time. She’s always flown under the radar when it came to awards, and I never realized it was her personal choice. I respect her even more for that. But I’m glad that changed this year. It was a long overdue nomination, and I really hope she wins.

Many of us go to our jobs everyday and many of us work hard and never get an award. I think thats what Jane is saying. She doesnt need an Emmy to know she is content. Glad to see she was nudged to submit a scene. Good luck to all those nominated.

I agree.Plus i think Jane might be happier that Frank Valentini believes in her enough to want her to submit than her getting nominated.

If Frank really cared he would fire re-ron and get a real writer. When she was on GL she blew me away. ON GH they have her relish fighting ,not seeing what fluke is and I don’t know what they submitted but Jane is an actress.. She is talented that’s for sure.

No shade, but what storyline did she have this past year that warrants an emmy nomination? She is a very nuanced actor but i didnt see anything unusually brilliant this year.

Charday

That’s my question, too. Still, I hope she wins!!

I hope she submitted the “I want the whole mean” scene. It was amazing. She deserves the win.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
