All outstanding reels. It’s a toss-up between Anderson, Clifton & Miller (sorry, Jeff Branson). Anderson goes the distance with his stern yet soft-spoken Spinelli; Clifton’s scene with Don Diamont was dynamite; but Billy Miller’s measured, focused performance with all his scene partners in his reel was the standout. (Amazing how many Y&R nominees so far had the good sense to include Michelle Stafford scenes in their reels.)

Having watched all four reels, I too am going to say it is between Anderson, Clifton, and Miller. Jeff Branson’s reel was good but not good enough to outshine the other three. If I have to give the edge to someone, it’s gonna be Billy Miller, with a very slight edge over Bradford Anderson. The dark horse to pull an upset would be Scott Clifton. If Jeff Branson wins, that will be a huge upset.

Billy of course. he is great, so understated, he can play hurt without tears or screaming. Scott also has certainly improved since GH. have fun voters. I really think who is in the scenes with them helps, D.Diamond and Jack forgot the actors name certainly gave them plenty to play off of. Bradford Anderson is OK now,now that Spin is speaking Normally ,but .I disliked Spin for so long I have trouble seeing him a winner.

For me there are two stand out performances… Bradford and Billy!!! Bradford and GH are my faves. Both were very good and had incredible depth and range. I am so invested in Spixie and will always be rooting for them to find their way back together again… but Spinelli had every right to those feelings about Maxie and Bradford made those scenes sing as painful as they may have been. What stands out for me with his performance compared with the others is that… he did most of the heavy lifting and I am sorry to say… did it without the strong partners performances that the other guys had. Isn’t it great that so many of these Emmy award winning performances are with Michelle Stafford. Bradford did that performance with such depth and with such quiet emotion. This has to be his year!!! Would also be happy to see Billy win… but will be hoping that Bradford gets this one!!!

All of them should be very proud of their performances and it is incredible to be nominated! I can’t wait to see who wins and I will be over the moon and probably crying with joy if Bradford gets this one!!! Spixie forever!!! Well done Bradford!!! Best of luck to all!

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?
