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.

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

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.
