OK—
This Is Us
” bested the other nominees in the category which included: The Americans, Better Call Saul, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Ozark.”

This is us, is great but not as good as the others and it’s the ‘Only’ show from Broadcast TV and that is why it won (network politics)

The Americans, Better Call Saul are cable and Ozark is Netflix and The Handmaid’s Tale is Hulu..

And- The Americans, Ozark and The Handmaid’s Tale, is much better than This Is Us –and The Americans should have gotten the award.

And- Chrissy Metz /Kate is Not in the This Is Us, above picture.

disagree with your networks politics comment as a matter of fact it has gotten harder for a network show to break through against the cable shows which have way more liberties if MASH were made today it would be difficult for a show as great as that to beat miss maisel Good for this is us!

as long as “This is Us” remains in the public eye/conscious … i’d really like to see a lot more of the cast nominated for individual performance (s) most notably Milo Ventimiglia, Chrissy Metz. Love Sterling K. Brown work. it’s such a treat to see ( Justin Hartley ) “Our” Golden boy, right ? one of the underlings who flew the coop. I fully embrace and totally agree that – thee whole cast – is so deserving.. what a treat to celebrate; fully acknowledged by their peers. THIS show just has to go the distance… for years to come.. just a warm heart tugging venture, no matter how tumultuous

Constance Towers Returns To GH As Helena Cassadine … But Just How Does She Appear?

Now, any General Hospital fan knows that if there is skullduggery and evil going down, Helena Cassadine (whether dead or alive) is usually somehow involved when it comes to the lives of certain people in Port Charles.

And … some major storyline news from TV Line reveals that on next Monday’s August 19th episode of the ABC soap opera, Constance Towers reprises her role as the evil one herself … Helena!

Apparently, look for Helena to appear in a flashback with none other than Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) and about Drew Cain’s time in Afghanistan.  That scene might hold a key to just what Shiloh wants now that he has implanted Drew’s memories into Franco (Roget Howath), thanks to Dr. Cabot’s work.  But could what is revealed also relate to the story that will see Billy Miller (Drew) exit the canvas later this month? Stay tuned.

Viewers last saw Helena alive in story until November of 2016, but then she was part of Jake’s hallucinations that were a part of the chimera storyline that climaxed at the Nurses’ Ball back in May of 2017.

So what do you think Helena’s presence in a flashback will reveal? And, who is ultimately having that flashback? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Daytime Emmys To Merge Younger Actor & Actress Category Into One As Gender-Inclusive Categories Are On The Rise

The upcoming 47th annual Daytime Emmys are already making some changes to key categories and specifically this one that affects daytime drama performers.  Word from Variety is that NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is going to announce that they are combining the Younger Actor and Actress categories into one gender-neutral category

Not only will the Younger performer category be gender-inclusive, but network soap performances will be combined with digital drama series performances for the category.  Previously, for this past Daytime Emmys, NATAS had changed the Guest Performer in a Drama Series to be gender-inclusive.

This category was initially created in 1985 when it was called the Outstanding Ingenue and then from there tweaked into Outstanding Juvenile Female and Male, and more recently that morphed into the Younger Actor and Actress categories.

Former GH star Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki) and former DAYS star, Kyle Pettis (Ex-Theo) will now be the last female and male to win the two separate categories with this new move for 2020.

Fans of film and TV have noticed that on several award shows on MTV: their Movie and TV Awards and their VMA’s, there are several gender-inclusive categories, as well as the Television Critics Association Awards who for instance doles out Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama in comedy.
