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 gag.I don’t drink kool-aid,

YES I AM ROOTING FOR MAURICE TO WIN. LONG OVERDUE!!!!
