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 with you su0000! I will never sign up/on for anything that requires access to my Facebook information! As soon as that popped up, I “un-liked” their page.

I would like to see ms. alderson walk away with this award…she has grown up on Daytime and is fabulous to fans…always!

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

there is no way either or deserve this accolade

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 of the show and quickly came up with those bonehead idea. SILLY…SILLY…SILLY….Like they used the superlotto machine to whirl around names printed on balls and these popped out.

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.

Michael

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.

None of them are my favorite.

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

Timmm

Kathy Griffin!

Jules

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
Jules

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
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

Tsuds

HMMM I guess I am not voting either..I go with the majority!

The same people who didnt nominate GH for and Emmy for “Soap of the Year!”!

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.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
