So, here goes! General Hospital’s Finola Hughes rips open the envelope at Saturday night’s 39th Annual Daytime Emmys and announces the winner in the Outstanding Supporting Actress is her cast mate the fantastic, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis)!  Only, Nancy is not at the Emmys.  She is live tweeting in her pajamas, but the tweets, if you were keeping an eye on them on Emmy night and beyond, were hilarious!

As itt turned out, Grahn had a previous family commitment to be at her sister’s lake house on Emmy night!  And today on Chicago’s Windy City Live!, in which Grahn was back visiting her hometown, the actress revealed what happened on Emmy night and finally gave her acceptance speech!

Grahn indicated that when she heard her name called, she and her family were left, “confused, and there was sort of this moment of people looking around and going, ‘What happened?’ And then it was like, ‘You idiot, why weren’t you there?!’”

Next, the Windy City Live crew presented Grahn with an Emmy statue and gave the now two-time Daytime Emmy winner a chance to give an acceptance speech and to tell the audience how it would have gone down, if she were to have been in attendance.  And at first, Grahn was witty and self-effacing, and then it became a beautiful, heartfelt speech to her daughter, Kate who was also in the Windy City Live studio, whereby Grahn gave this Emmy for her daughter to keep!

Nancy said to Kate on-camera, “This is the first time I’m telling her this. This is yours. When you go to college … you’ll take this … because I want you to remember that life is good, and that if you do what you love in life and you do the best that you can and you have faith that all is well, it will be.”

Watch the great video segment after the jump and let us know what you thought about Nancy’s comments and acceptance speech!

Surprising, warm, mutual speech penetrating heart. I live in Russia, and with excitement in heart I looked and watched ceremony and that writes Nancy. Its speeches were witty, cheerful, ardent. When I heard her name, I was happy … as in paradise. This is the surprising, magic woman she should receive it long ago it is worthy without any doubt. I love you, Nancy Lee Grahn ! : ххххо

nancy rocks, glad she finally has an Emmy for her GH character. I know she has one for Santa Barbara, but for sure happy that now she has it for playing Alexis.

nancy is so deserving. she’s put her time in the industry with memorable, powerful performances. there are over-rated (susan lucci, maurice benard) and under-rated performers like her. i love it when the underdog wins!

kudos!!

Thanks for posting this!! Nancy is one of my favorite actresses and the Emmy is well-deserved. I love her ability to tackle comedy and drama so well and her scenes are always fun to watch – even when I don’t care for a particular storyline. I’d love to see her interact with more of her GH colleagues – it’s fun to see her scenes extend beyond the “Davis Girls”. She’s terrific with Tracy, Luke – I would love to see Alexis have scenes with Anna, Heather, Todd, John McBain, etc.

I would like to see her in a court room with tea’ on opposite sides. Now that would be good.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
