With nominations for Regina King, Alfre Woodard, and Octavia Spencer, I’m happy. And Susan Kelechi Watson had a brilliant year on THIS IS US. But, and I know I’m in a minority here, I find Sterling Brown highly overrated. I can predict nearly every expression he’ll have. And straining to hear his “underplaying” has become tedious. Still, there are many worthy nominees to root for. Congrats to all!

Nicolas Bechtel On His Return To GH: “I’m Back and I Am Still Spencer”

Look for Spencer Cassadine to finally return to the canvas of General Hospital!  Next week, Nicolas Bechtel reprises his fan favorite role as Nikolas’ son!

What will happen when Spencer learns that the father he grieved for over three years is alive and well?

Meanwhile, Bechtel took to Twitter to confirm his return to the ABC daytime drama series expressing: “Well…it’s out of the bag. It was so hard not to reply to all of you. I’m back and I am still Spencer. I can’t wait for next week. Thank you SO much to everyone who supported me. I love being a part of this phenomenal show #gh”

Viewers are looking forward to scenes between Bechtel and Marcus Coloma (Nikolas), Maura West (Ava), Genie Francis (Laura) and James Patrick Stuart (Valentin). Will those all come to pass? Stay tuned.

So, happy to know Bechtel is back as the mischievous Spencer C.? Comment below.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.
