Nelson Branco is so biased and too often nominates his favorites even if they don’t have reels to present for their nominations. Van Hansis should have been nominated in the Supporting Actor category, not Jon Hensley, for example: Jon is a talented actor but hadn’t real amazing scenes during 2010. Van Hansis has so many amazing scenes and very gut-wrenching episodes! But Nelson chose Jon because he loves Jon and dislikes Van. That’s a well-known fact actually. Nelson never nominated Van in one of his bast acting ranking lists. This Branco is the worst soap journalist out there.

I agree that Van should have been nominated.He is such a wonderful actor and makes every emotion believable .Van should get many awards for his acting in 2010 and he should have years ago.Not only is he a great actor but he’s such a great guy! And it doesn’t hurt that he’s got the best smile and best face anywhere !Do I love him?……You bet !!!!!!

When I posted before i hadn’t read the list….i cannot believe Jon Hensley ( who is a fine actor) was nominated for best supporting actor and Van Hansis wasn’t ? What ATWT was Mr. Branco watching…he could not have been watching what we were to omit Van.This was Vans year….he was so wonderful.What is Nelson Brancos problem ? Anybody who watched ATWT in 2010 knows that Vans acting was superb in every way….with or without Eric.Shame on you nelson branco….please never refer to yourself as a journalist .

Really Ducourage? I agree that Branco’s biased w/ Brandon Beemer, Haiduk, Farah Fath, Crystal Chappell, John Paul Lavosier, Muhney, Carlivati, Brad Bell, Nadia Bjorlin, Valentini, B&B, OLTL, etc when I used to read his blogs and I also agree that Branco’s the worst soap reporter. When I used to read his blogs, he’d often write very unflattering things abt Ellen Wheeler, P&G, Christopher Goutman, Barbara Bloom, etc. What made you think that he’s biased against Hansis?

bottomchef….did you read the list? To put Jon Hensley from ATWT in the best Supporting actor category and omit Van Hansis is really a slap in the face.While I like Jon this was Vans year and there was no comparison between these two actors.Unfortunately people do have their favorites and sometimes it clouds their judgement as in Mr. Brancos case.I’m a long time viewer of ATWT and I will say again Van was brilliant in 2010…He was a joy to watch and so many people agree….read any of the blogs…..

mmc they’re not actual awards though. Outstanding female actor in a new role or recast is an actual category according to someone that wrote on this message board. Hello, what kind of category is that?! Then practically anyone can get nominated.

Van Hansis and Eric Sheffer Stevens for outstanding performance by a duo….absolutely!As a long time soap viewer, i can honestly say there has NEVER been a couple(duo) like them and i don’t think there ever will be again!These are two of the finest actors ever and i wish someone would come along and give each of them a fabulous part.

YES James Scott nominated love it, James Scott is one of the best actors i’ve ever seen because he’s so believable, unpredictable and talented, I just can’t turn it off. He deserves it. I really hope the voters see his work, He was all over the scale in what emotion he had to portray, and he kept nailing it scene after scene. He carries scenes much better than people give him credit.

ITA!! James is outstanding, dedicated, believable, true to his craft and an absolute joy to watch. I just wish that the writers would see the treasure that they have not utilized in James and in addition to his chemistry with Alison.

Congrats James you are a brilliant actor and it definitely shows on the screen!

Also as a teacher THANK YOU for supporting Love Bully it means a lot to us educators whom see it daily in our classrooms, thanks!

Can I get an “AMEN” for lead actress nominee, “Melody Thomas Scott”!? This is soooooo long overdue! She makes the most of every scene she’s in and delivered a genuine, tour-de-force performance as the ever-struggling, orgasmic vodka swilling, original desperate housewife, Nikki Newman! If there’s any justice, MTS will win this one and win the biggest award at this year’s Emmy telecast. It will be a triumph not seen since La Lucci won her first Emmy. Emmy voters, are you listening?!

OUTSTANDING FEMALE ACTOR IN A NEW ROLE OR RECAST

Nadia Bjorlin (Lara, Venice)

Bjorlin most probably would because biased tvgc always pushes for her. Chloe has been a terrible char and Bjorlin has been atrocious as Chloe since she was being called ghoul girl on Days. But as w/ many of Branco’s faves, their acting, despite how terrible, is always praised.

Crap.Naid always did an amzing job as Chloe,no matter how crapy the writimg was sometimes.And now she is given good material on Venice allowing her to finally have more people seeing how amazingly talented she is.You don’t like her acrting, fine,it doesn’t make her less talebnted.

Venice did not begin 2010. So Bjorlin’s char is not new/recast. Therefore, she should not even be nominated. The argument abt her lack of talent aside, she should not be nominated based on eligibility. Also, there are so many categories: actor, actress, supporting actor, supporting actress, younger actor, younger actress, duo, new/recast actor, new/recast actress. It takes away from a nomination when practically anyone can get a nom bec of all the categories. Majority if not all of the people on goldderby Daytime forums disagree w/ you, dislike Bjorlin’s “acting” on Days and consider her acting/storyline the weakest.

Well watching Nadia Bjorlin on Days and Venice is like night and day. I do not know if she is just bored with her DOOL character and storyline or what but she is painful to watch and it is not just the character. Yes she has no chemistry with her current on screen love interest, Shawn Christian and Chloe is a moron but you are paid to give 100% to every performance and she just does not do that on DOOL. That is why when I found out she was going to be cast on Venice, I shuddered. She has… Read more »

That doesn’t make Bjorlin a recast though. From what you wrote, Keener was originally supposed to be on Venice, but she never did portray that role. Many actors were originally supposed to portray Daytime parts. But if they don’t assume those roles and someone else/a second choice does, that doesn’t make the second choice actor a recast. Therefore, since the role is not a 2010 recast and is also not a 2010 new role, then there should be no nomination.

Hi Michael – I was surprised I haven’t seen anything from you or Nelson on this front. Will they still be announced on a podcast tonight? Or has this quietly disappeared into the cyber-ether?

Thanks,

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot in development at ABC, Pine Valley.

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited. It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time,  and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds since they learned the show was in development at ABC,  she got a solid response from Mark.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series,  Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.
