This was posted on the December 2016 thread

ABC’s General Hospital, who has delivered some very emotional and compelling storylines in 2016, received the sole WGA (Writers Guild America) Award nomination for a daytime drama series on Monday, when the TV categories were announced.

Thus, GH will be the victor in the category as well when the awards are handed out in ceremonies on Sunday, February 19th in Los Angeles.

Last sentence, please take note. They only won because they were the only series nominated…..hahahahaha

I love the 1st sentence of this article

ABC’s General Hospital took home the Writers Guild Award for in the Daytime Drama category.

Of course they took it home, they were the only one nominated……..so funny to me. Cannot wait for Ron Carlivati to take Days to number one and show the fans how a soap should be written. GH has not had any good stories at all in the last year and a half. JMHO.

Ron couldn’t even get GH to break 3 million viewers on a regular basis when he was writing, and he’s gonna double DOOL’s viewership to overtake Y&R as the #1 soap? Lol, I’d like some of whatever you’re smoking!

@Scott – I read this somewhat differently. You say GH was the only series nominated. Very true. You could also say GH was considered to be the only soap worth nominating this year. What prevented the other four from being nominated by the WGA? Nothing really…except a year’s worth of work. 220+ episodes written by 3 other soaps, and none of them had work that attracted the WGA. GH should be proud, especially considering that Carlivati won the very same award the two consecutive years prior for his work on GH. If he thought it was an honor to receive it at the time, why shouldn’t anyone else?

Jelly are just plan crappy writers. Boring storylines Boring couples. All the couple are boring and they are all the same looking. Why are Nathen and Maxie on prop duty..

What a sad joke! “Jelly” couldn’t write a coherent letter to Santa Claus. Although they’re not really writing the show, anyway. They’re just taking dictation from Valentini and Varni, GH’s true HWs. The show was a silly, unwatchable mess in 2016, a total waste of and insult to its stellar cast (they deserve so much better than this team of no-talents).

Got to say GH story-lines are getting better but I will be glad when the Nelle story-line is over since we learned her father was Carly’s adoptive father. I wish they could bring Morgan back, with another actor in that slot, cause Morgan had potentials. Lastly, we need to know what really happen to Charlotte’ “mother” Claudette, the actress is a powerful girl and can handle any lines thrown at her.
Congrats to GH’s writing team on their award. 🙂

Katelyn MacMullen Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary On GH; Now, What Will Happen When Willow Finds Out The Truth About Wiley?

Since Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) first appeared on the General Hospital canvas as the school teacher who needed to let Charlotte’s (Scarlett Fernandez) parents (Valentin, Nina and Lulu) know of her bullying tactic sat school, the character has become quite intertwined to others in Port Charles.

We eventually learned that Willow shared a dark past with the late Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and even had his child, but never told him about it.  Later, Willow seem to get the attention of two young gentlemen; Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard).

As of now, Chase and Willow look to be quite the happy couple.  But, what will happen when Willow learns the devastating truth- that the little boy she gave up -that is being raised by Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) isn’t really hers.  In fact, her son died when Brad took Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) baby to replace the baby that died.

In a post on her Instagram, Katelyn MacMullen shared that it’s hard to believe a year has past since her debut on the ABC soap opera expressing gratitude: “It’s been a year since I’ve joined this incredible cast! I love this show so much, and every single person involved. I’m so grateful 🖤 It’s been a pretty crazy ride for Willow so far, and I’ve enjoyed every second of it 🌚 Thank you @generalhospitalabc !! 🙏 #GH #oneyearanniversary”

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
