I agree with you too Georgia, the little fellow who played Sam was terrific, and a nom would have been nice for him. I miss him as well.

I completely agree no one is as cute and lovable and lights up a scene like the young actor who played little Sam.

I liked the boy that played Jack before he was aged. I thought he was adorable and played the role exactly right. Wish they would not have SORASed him. The last little girl who played Emma was fabulous.

Patrick Gibbons Jr AKA Sam Manning was robbed.

Impressive that Austin Williams (OLTL) and Haley Pullous (Molly on GH) got two nominations. Pullous was also nominated for a guest appearance on House MD (FOX). Disappointing that Kelly Missal (Danielle on OLTL) and Patrick Gibbons, Jr (Sam on OLTL) received no nominations. Andrew Trischitta (Jack on OLTL) looks like a young Tom Cruise. I think Williams is likely to win, but I am a sucker for anyone from OLTL.

haley pullous was cute in house,I didnt know she was nominated ,I think austin williams should, and will win.And like you I am pulling for anyone on One life to live to.

Oh yeah, Sam from OLTL should have been nominated also. It’s too bad we can’t see him on TV anymore 🙁

I only watched OLTL for a few months, but the Shane story was the reason I kept tuning in. The actor who played Shane should win hands down.
Sam was also great.The little boy said his lines as though they were the truth,and he didn’t look like he was acting. A sign of an actor.
Haley Pullos also deserves to win. She is terrific on GH.
Ciera on DOOL also was good.

I think Shane from OLTL should win.

I can sure understand that Shane was nominated, and he should win too! But Jack? Seriously? He may be cute, but he just can NOT act! I would cringe during some of his parts! I have seen numerous comments over time saying the same thing. A real dissapointment is that little Sam was not nominated. I don’t get that at all! He really deserved a nom! A better actor than Jack! I enjoyed Sam! I hope to see him again!

Sam was great, and I agree with you: Jack was the WORST. Shane will probably win because he had some great stuff to work with and his acting broke your heart. And, can someone tell my why SPIKE from AMC was nominated?! Did the boy even speak on the show?! If he did, it was barely noticeable.

Lynda

I agree with you about Spike. Can’t recall the child saying much, or giving any notable performance. And that’s what makes it even more puzzling about Sam. How did Spike get a nom, and Sam did not? That little kid gave some notable performances, and especially for his age. A real snub! I do not get it at all! I’ll bet his little feelings were hurt!

I’m so glad Lexi Ainsworth was nominated, I hope GH is embarrassed over their ridiculous and inept decision to send her away….she was amazing, she gave Alexis/Nancy more legitimate story – which was warranted – it was all good. As you can tell, I’m still irate over her departure….and 85 people return…….for splash and dilution of stories and lack of Nancy. Sigh.

Alexa

Wait, all of these children were nominated and Kelley Missal was not? I don’t understand. Austin Williams and Andrew Trischitta are sweet, adorable boys whose acting has improved slightly, but award worthy they are not.

Andrew Trischitta the kid that played Jack on OLTL was horrid. If he wins I’ll stop watching GH too.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
