Ron Carlivati did not write that anniversary episode, or the day before or after, all KUDOS go to Our very Own Elizabeth Korte…

p.s. Ron C. is the reason Genie was written off back to Paris in one episode, as he stated that he could NOT write anything for Laura without Luke… I am loving the new Writing Team, never a dull moment + Genie is back on long term contract for atleast 3 more years, possibly more once the 3 year deal, bringing her back home!!! I think WE have the BEST Cast, Crew, Frank Valentini, and NOW a great Writing team!!! By the way, when Ron C submitted reels for Best Writing, his ego didn’t allow for that… He didn’t even… Read more »

I for one am turning handsprings knowing that “Y & R” will NEVER receive a WGA nomination with Chuck Pratt as the Head Writer/Plagiarizer/Hack!!

GH ratings fall so far that RC is fired and GH gets a writing nomination. This is why awards that are decided on one or two episodes for a genre that does 250 a year are ridiculous and meaningless. Just like it was meaningless when GH won last year.

Why only 2 (out of the 4) soaps get nominated?
Why doesn’t WGA Awards nominate all 4 soaps?!

B&B! I love the Maya SL! It’s great to see a soap that is timely and relevant. We don’t live in 1950 — and soaps can’t be stuck their either and survive. All soaps have to evolve and reflect current times or be left behind and die. Younger viewers love SLs that relfect the times — and no current daytime soap can survive without younger viewers because older viewers do not count in the ratings/demos. I am a B&B fan, but congrats to both B&B and GH for these noms!

Just another testament which proves that those who vote on such matters do not watch the shows. GH has been horridly written for the last two years. I heard B&B has been pretty horrid too.
These awards are meaningless.

Wait, Y&R’s Chuck Pratt didn’t get a nomination?? All is right with the world.

If I knew which episode or episodes they are using I might be better able to decide which one I would be rooting for. My guess that BW episode with Luke finding out he killed his mother is the one GH is using, if so, I think they have it hands down, but then again, awards are given for so many reasons, it is hard predict—-

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
