AMEN! You would have to be def, dumb and blind to vote for Kirsten Alderson for anything other than annoying.

oh, well if i did facebook, i’d pick Ellen or Kristen… bad they’re all lumped together talk hosts and actors. I’ve enjoyed watching Kristen since was just a little squirt. I can only catch Ellen on clips of her show, but she’s gotta be a fan favorite as she’s just so funny.

Excuse me but Kristen Alderson has grown up on soaps and is a fine actress and she deserves any/all awards that come her way. Go Kirsten!

I’m not voting either. I think this is lowering the standard of “The Emmys” to have such a category. This is something for “The People’s Choice Awards”, not this show. Also, you must register using your Facebook account and it says they will be able to get a whole lot of personal information from your FB page. Don’t like that. So, don’t care about this one iota.

What a totally random group of people to nominate for an award. Did they pull the names out of a hat or something?

OMG!

Gag!

you cannot be serious

Michael and Kiki of GH… no other actors from any of the 4 serials

unbelievable

it’d better go to

Sharon Osborne
Steve Harvey
or Dr. OZ

incredible that this tired twosome merits

heck i’d even boast more that Daniel and Jenn deserve this
course I just have to think about deer in headlights Jenn and stalwart i don’t know why he’s ON Daniel and wait their scenes over

Unless I misunderstood the article, I believe they chose daytime personalities that have a large presence on social media and are asking their followers in that media to chose their favorite daytime personality to follow on facebook, twitter and so forth. It is an award for using social media to connect with fans, and now fans from that arena can reward them for that effort by voting for them to get this special Emmy. It has nothing to do with their work — but how they use social media–at least that is how I read it.

So in other words we’re voting for the girl who came onto GH with a purpose because RC liked writing her. ABC pulled an oakey-doke and becoming a different character (KIKI) proves this girl was a one trick pony. Starr as a brunette. Knowing she’s not a show favorite she started dating Chad and keeps her name out there in social media for whoever chooses to follow her. Bottom line this award makes absolutely no sense at all since other daytime actors interact with their fans and have a much larger following. Somebody needed a time filler towards the end… Read more »

What a random group of people. Lol. How were these names determined…pulled from a hat?

The way I understood it is that they chose daytime personalities that are very active in social media and are asking fans which one is their favorite to follow in that area– it is reward to the star who uses social media to connect with their fans the best—it isn’t an award for their work– that’s how I read it anyway.

I clicked on to vote. I could not get to where I needed to vote. It gave me some strange message in a box.

Not voting either! There are absolutely NO CBS daytime drama stars included, so there’s absolutely no reason to vote. And like someone said, they wanted access to my Facebook and I’m not about to let them have access to it. It’s bad enough as it is.

Why are there two from GH and none of the other soaps? Who came up with the nominees?

Kathy Griffin!

Ummm..why 2 GH players and no people from any other soaps?

And what odd choices too- what makes these two such fan favourites above others? Ali Sweeney, Maurice Bernard, Sharon Case, Kirsten Storms etc ok I get it. But Chad and Kristen? No offense, but what in fresh hell? They are liked and have plenty of fans, sure. But the only two daytime drama representatives of fan favourites? I would have never have chosen these two.

And people complain about the list of nominees…..OY!

The Fan Favorite Award was created by the Emmy staff/promoters..
The same group who snubbed GH ..
Perhaps that is why Kristen Alderson & Chad Duell were chose to calm the waters with GH fans .. By throwing GH fans a bone; so to say..

Jules
Guest

Yeah right. They didn’t do this because GH was “snubbed”- which in and of itself is a subjective notion I do not agree with. DAYS only got 4 actor nominations, by your logic, shouldn’t those actors of the show have been “thrown a bone” too?

It’s just not so. Even IF your logic tracks, which IMO it does not, why those two GH actors? Why not Finola Hughes or Kelly Monaco, actors who were both quote unquote ‘snubbed’ and with large enough fan bases to ‘calm waters’?

Omar

I agree with you Jules all the way..

In my opinion, this award is just plain dumb and useless..

Maybe an award for best couple in a soap, or Best overall fan favorite who was NOT nominated this year..Kind of “6th man of the year” , like the award they give in NBA basketball, to any daytime performer : soaps, talk show, informative show, judge show, etc

Nutshell: Cannon is a racist, Harvey is annoying, Oz is full of BS, Osborne is classless, and Michael and Kiki, puke! There, I voted!

You’ve got to be kidding me? My least favorite actress and character on General Hospital is Lauren Kiki Jerome. She seems to be used as a filler in scenes because she can not hold her own storyline. Such a waste of air-time.

ABC Previews General Hospital’s Halloween Episode

Fight Night will definitely have an impact on the lives of the citizens of Port Charles, on the upcoming Thursday, October 29th episode of the ABC daytime drama series.

Announced by ABC today, along with primetime’s Dancing with the Stars, The Conners, Supermarket Sweep, and America’s Funniest Home Videos, GH is having some ghoulish goings-on for the trick or treat holiday.

According to the GH preview: “As an impending storm approaches Port Charles, Trina and Joss decide to meet up with Cameron and Dev at Charlies before heading off to a Halloween party for the night. Unbeknownst to them, Julian notices the kids are being watched a little too closely by a masked individual. Uneasy and unable to shake the feeling that something is off, Julian confronts the man. Meanwhile, Carly is stunned when Cyrus brings a familiar acquaintance to dinner at the Metro Court. And elsewhere, Finn and Anna’s plans to take Violet trick-or-treating are hampered when Finn is called back to GH, leaving Anna alone, unaware that a particularly evil threat awaits her.”

So, excited to see what goes down on Halloween on GH? Comment below.

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

With Harrison taking on the role of Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father, that makes things a little juicier in the romantic department.

According to EW.com who broke the casting news, Harrison begins taping today Wednesday at the ABC studios for General Hospital and fans can look forward to his debut on-screen in a few weeks.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

TV fans remember Gregory from the hit series Trapper John M.D., then later on Falcon Crest, Judging Amy, One Tree Hill and more.  He also has frequently appeared in Lifetime and Hallmark Channel movies most recently.

So, what do you think about the Gregory Chase recast with Gregory Harrison? Intrigued? Comment below.
