General Hospital's Jane Elliot Comments On Her Daytime Emmy Nomination!

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.

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!!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
