I hope you mention Van Hansis wonderful acting skills this past year.Eric Sheffer Stevens too , but Van deserves an emmy.I’m looking forward to hearing what you have to say and hope i can get to talk to you!

I totally agree that VAN HANSIS deserves all the recognition for his amazing work in ATWT.

Hansis would have a difficult time winning bec Jonathan Jackson has pretty much been declared the Supporting Actor winner. While Conroy could win the Younger Actor trophy w/ the right reel.

I don’t think so. Van Hansis is way better than this Jonathan Jackson. Van Hansis conveys emotions with so much more beauty than this guy! And Hansis’ acting is the best!

If you had seen Van Hansis acting skills this last year you might change your mind.He went through every emotion this past year, happy, sad. bewildered, angry , and at the end utterly devastated.Not to mention his beautiful smile and gorgeous face.When he smiles his eyes smile too.on his own he’s the best , but the love story with Eric Sheffer Stevens gave him more than enough material for 10 reels.He really deserves an emmy…i have never missed an actor like I’m missing him now!!!!

Jackson ranked higher than Hansis in their best moments of 2010 according to the On Air On Soaps team so they obviously think Jackson has the better reel. The Daytime audience has pretty much been proclaiming Jackson’s reel as the superior, winning reel for Supporting Actor. To each his own, but I think Jackson’s far better than Hansis and that Jackson will win since people like his acting. He’s reclaiming his throne in Daytime. He grew up in the medium and if they nominated him for not doing much when he returned, they would nominate him now for a reel… Read more »

If it’s the way it works, that’s totally unfair, because Van Hansis has been nominated three times for the Emmy Awards and should have won. During 2010, Hansis did the best work in daytime TV according to a lot of soaps magazines that told that Van Hansis did such an amazing work and had wonderful reels when Luke mourned the death of his boyfriend and when Luke confronted the doc back in May. Van Hansis deserves to win an Emmy in 2011 for his fabulous acting. He deserves it since 2006!

ATWT and its actors has been getting screwed for a long time by CBS and P&G.it’s a shame when they had some of the best actors on daytime.I respect your opinions but to me Van Hansis is superior to all the others.!

Jonathan Jackson potentially winning is not “unfair” to Van Hansis bec Hansis has been nominated a number of times. That’s ridiculous. It’s only a freaking award, so Hansis’s followers are overreacting. The soap press and soap audience are pretty much proclaiming that JJ could win either in Supporting or as Lead. According to many, JJ’s reel is that great that it could win in any category. How is ATWT “getting screwed” by CBS and P&G when Maura, Park and Pinson won recently? If Crystal Chappell could not win for the heavily hyped acting for Otalia, then I doubt Hansis win… Read more »

bottomchef , we’re not overreacting, we just feel strongly that Van deserves to win.ATWT was not treated with the respect it deserved by P&G because they wanted out.Evidentally you are not a Van Hansis fan.but that’s ok because he has so many that love him and appreciate his work!

Here are who I think were the best and worst. Best younger actor goes to Zack Conroy. Conroy in particular did some very subtle, laid back acting w/c isn’t common in Daytime. If he was on Y&R, he would be engulfed by the graduates of the Christian Leblanc School of Scene Chewing. Conroy is a good actor, so it’s terrible that he’s supporting awful actors like Clifton and Frantz, since Scamber is once again, sadly driving storylines. Oliver should be driving storylines since Conroy is attractive and the better actor. Best younger actress goes to Kim Matula. She’s no Jennifer… Read more »

Zack Conroy is a treasure for sure, while the character of Amber makes me want to dump my TV in the garbage.I like Don Diamont, he’s so devious he’s fun to watch.But and this is a big BUT, if you were a watcher of ATWT an award should go to my beloved Van Hansis.He was so good this past year….when he cries you cry and when he smiles you can’t help but smile.I could have watched his story and his story with Eric Sheffer Stevens 24/7. He truly deserves an award….to me he has it all…looks , great acting skills… Read more »

Van Hansis is the best supporting actor. In fact, Hansis should be in the lead actor category but he is still too young, so in the supporting category, Hansis is the best!

you’re right…Van should be lead actor….if it wasn’t for him (and Eric) iI would have dumped my TV in the garbage.He is so deserving.And so nice! I’m missing him on ATWT…but watch some clips on you tube…some are so good and if you’re a crier like me you’ll cry tears of sadness and tears of happiness!i wish him only the very best! Happy 2011 Van …i know all good things will come to you!

I was looking at the list of Soaps on your page….& so sad to see how few there are.
It boggles my mind….& to think that they once ‘commanded’ Daytime TV. I am a long time
GH fan….& its so unsettling to see how low their ratings have become…especially with the BIG talent they have.

I called in to Blazinryradio and could not get through.there was something wrong with the phone line so you couldn’t get in to call much less to listen. .I turned on my computer and there’s something wrong with the sound so I couldn’t hear much but I did hear you mention Eric Sheffer Stevens and his great portrayal of Dr. Reid Oliver.I think you mentioned something about him being best supporting actor.Am i correct?His character was played beautifully, but Van as Luke was memorable with patience and love helping to make this snarky neurosurgeon into a real person.i couldn’t hear… Read more »

Van Hansis played each emotion Luke went through with such beauty! If he wasn’t picked, I am very disappointed and I really don’t understand what Hansis did for him not being supported. I’m sorry but Ess acting was very one dimensional. VH worked his scenes with so much beauty and with realism.

Van deserves an award….he’s a joy to watch.I wish we could see him somewhere.i have never loved a character more in all my years of watching this soap.And as himself he’s so kind and nice…I hope he’ll get cast in a show soon!

CG and JP (formerly on ATWT) should be rated the worst ever team in soap history. They compeltely deserve that dishonor after they destroyed one of the most beautiful love stories (LURE) to ever grace the soap screen, with the horrendous ending.

mmc
Guest

It really was the worst ending…wasn’t it?I’m still not over it after all these months.But Van Hansis really acted up a storm when Reid was dying and then died.ATWT should have ended happilly for everyone because it was going away forever and we wouldn’t be able to see how Luke managed to survive without the love of his life. Why did they choose this horrible ending ….i don’t think we’ll ever really know.Thanks for nothing, CG, JP, CBS, P&G and all TPTB! But Van does deserve an emmy….he should get one finally!!!!!

I’m all for Lexi and Haley from GH. They are wondeful young actresses. In fact, just this evening I saw Haley on a new episode of ‘House’. She was wonderful talking and listening to House talk about his girlfriend and giving him some advice on how to be nice to her. It was very charming! Haley really delivered. So, I would vote for her an any contest, and Lexi too.

right now, Nadia Bjorlin as Chloe is the most fascinating to watch on DAYS. The desperation of a woman and the combination of post pardum depression and the unraveling her marriage to Daniel. Her performance have been magnificent to say the least.

other great performers on DAYS are Kristian Alfonso, James Scott, Arianne Zucker, Suzanne Rogers, and Chandler.

Y&R is by far the most disappointing soap on the air. I have quit watching after 25 years.

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.
