Of course I hope Maurice wins! General Hospital has unlimited, top shelf talent with and without the former OLTL additions and I appreciate them all but, Maurice/Sonny is my favorite, favorite. He is the flavor, the polish and the elegance that helps to set GH apart. Even after the extremely beleaguered 2011, 23 Daytime Emmy nominations. What a show! Best of luck to all the GH nominees in all categories but for Outstanding Lead Actor, Mo for the WIN!

Sonny on GH has been one of the best characters on Daytime. There will always be only one ‘ Sonny Corinthos, Jr.’.

Michael, how come you’re not showcasing ALL HLN’s interviews with daytime stars? Deidre Hall, Heather Tom and all the other great links they have on their site right now in honor of daytime? Nothing against Maurice, because I do like him, I just don’t know why only he’s gotten attention on your site for his interview.

I cannot stand Sonny and the guy who plays him he mumbles and always looks like he is looking for his crib notes.No thanks If they give him the emmy over some of the more talented other actors that are also nominated.That will be a shame and we will know the reason no one is watching. Sonny made me shut the show off for quite a few years,and if they keep the mob on every day,I may just shut it off again. I don’t like the mob,I don’t like the killing,the mob with a heart of gold,GMAB. That makes me… Read more »

GH Double Wedding Promo: Who Will Tie the Knot? Maxie and Peter? Anna and Finn? Neither Couple?

This week’s it’s the highly-anticipated double wedding of Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) on General Hospital, but already things look pretty dismal that any nuptials will take place, or will they?

We already know that Anna and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) have figured out Peter is a very bad guy, Maxie is having second doubts of marrying the guy, someone enters the picture unexpected from the latest promo and the end of last Friday’s cliffhanger, Obrecht’s (Kathleen Gati) got some motherly news for Peter,  and Finn is on a mission to find out if he is the bio-son of Chase (Josh Swickard), and not his father Gregory (Gregory Harrison) and more!

On Monday, ABC released its promo for the nuptials, which does have guests seated at the wedding, but who will show up to say their “I do’s”?

 

In the latest issue of SOD on newsstands now, GH co head-writer, Chris Van Etten shared what fans should expect, revealing: “The double wedding is the crescendo and climax of years of stories, secrets and lies – and by the time it’s over, the lives of everybody involved will have been changed forever.”

Watch the teaser below.

Now, let us know: Do you think either couple, Maxie and Peter, or Anna and Finn ,will actually get hitched? How do you think the drama will go down on Port Charles? Weigh-in via the comment section.
