The 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards are now just a month away and to continue to get soap fans revved up and ready for the ceremonies, NATAS today on their official facebook page posted the nominee reels for one of the more hotly contested categories … that of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series!

Below are the official descriptions of the ladies Emmy submissions followed by a continuous playlist where you can watch all five nominees back-to-back to help you give us your opinion if you were to judge!   Watch the performances and let us know who you think should take home the gold on Sunday night, June 22nd!

Kelly Sullivan  -General Hospital

Connie Falconeri was involved in a car accident on New Year’s Eve that put her only child, Trey Mitchell in a coma. When it was determined that Trey was brain dead, Connie wouldn’t turn off the machines. Trey’s wife, Kristina Corinthos –Davis acted quickly to get a court order to allow her husband to die with dignity. Connie realized that as a mother she had to do the right thing for her son and turned off the machines. Life without her recently discovered son had been completely unbearable for Connie. Connie’s childhood boyfriend, Sonny Corinthos seemed to be the only one that could help Connie through the dark moments.

Jane Elliot  – General Hospital

Tracy Quartermaine CEO of ELQ, always got what she wanted when it came to the world of business. When it came to love, Tracy’s record wasn’t exactly stellar. The one man that seemed to get her, Luke Spencer had fooled her in the past and yet they continued to be drawn to each other. Luke’s ex-wife, Laura Spencer return to Port Charles had given Tracy a moment to pause and reflect on what she wanted when it came to relationships. Being a Quartermaine, she wanted it all and would not settle for anything less.

Melissa Claire Egan  – The Young and the Restless

Pregnant with her ex-husband’s baby and convinced he is in love with someone else – and that he will likely try and take the baby away from her – Chelsea decides to pass one-night-stand Dylan off as the baby’s father. Virtual strangers at first, Chelsea and Dylan fall in love and marry, baby Connor is born, and the little family is blissfully happy until Chelsea is forced to confess the truth.  She insists nothing needs to change and pleads with a devastated Dylan not to leave – but will he listen?

Elizabeth Hendrickson  -The Young and the Restless

For Chloe, blissfully unaware of just how dramatically her life is about to change, it’s a night to remember. Her seven-year-old daughter, Delia, got a standing ovation at the school play. Her estranged husband, Kevin, took her to see a favorite movie for the umpteenth time, and the two are inching closer to reconciliation.  And then Chloe learns Delia has been the victim of a hit-and-run accident and did not survive.  Inconsolable about not getting to say goodbye, she lashes out, first blaming Delia’s father, then Kevin, for the tragedy. Chloe doesn’t want this to be real. But it is.

Amelia Heinle – The Young and the Restless

Victoria couldn’t attend seven-year-old stepdaughter Delia’s school play, but she planned a welcome home celebration, decorating the living room and suggesting husband Billy bring home ice cream. Happily awaiting Billy and Delia’s return, Victoria gets life-changing news: While Billy ran into a store for the ice cream, Delia got out of the car to chase her dog and was the victim of a hit-and-run driver. Now newly arrived home from the hospital, and not knowing where grief stricken Billy has gone, Victoria pulls down the party decorations and shares with sister Abby that she blames herself. If she had gone to the play, if she hadn’t suggested ice cream, Delia would still be alive. When Billy comes home he is upset Victoria removed the decorations and put Delia’s belongings away, but eventually realizes how much he needs to lean on his wife.

Please, a tie win for Kelly(who deserves 2 trophys for obvious reasons…lol) and Jane…will Elizabeth Hendrickson be leaving Genoa City for Port Chuck as the new Robin?

Kelly was fantastic and should definitely win this award. Love Jane Eliott and she deserves a win as well. Both excellent actors.

OMG! Kelly was no way as great as Elizabeth Hendrickson! Not even close! Elizabeth gave stellar performances for MONTHS and this is HER Year!

Amelia was equally AWESOME too … it is RARE for a story to showcase a step mother’s feeling of loss, and Victoria nailed her performances, again for MONTHS! Maybe a tie in the women’s category this year …. Chloe and Victoria!

Elizabeth or anyone on YR for this one

Well for starters, Robin Mattson (‘Heather,’ General Hospital) should be in the running because she was magnificent in 2013.

But since she isn’t, it’s absolutely going to go to Elizabeth Hendrickson.

And people, please shut up about Sharon Case (!!!) 🙁

Sharon Case was pre-nominated for Lead Actress.

Yes, I know but in the thread for Outstanding Younger ACTOR, all the fans were complaining about Sharon Case not getting a nomination at all.

Jane Elliot (Tracy ) GH or Kelly Sullivan (Connie) GH
Both were outstanding!
I’d like Jane to win but I believe Kelly/Connie will take home the Gold Dummy..

I would like to see Jane get it, but unfortunately I think one the gals from Young and the Restless will get it– their submitted scenes are more in tune with the emmy style of favoring highly dramatic crying scenes or expression of anger when choosing the most outstanding work.

I would love to see Jane Elliot win in this category; that scene was one of my all time favorites for Tracy and the writing, plus her magnificent acting, were incredible. Elizabeth Hendrickson and Melissa Claire Egan very much deserved their nominations and I predict that one of them will be the victor. I can see Missy winning, not only for her strong reel, but she has been a constant nominee for years and, sometimes, the Emmys love to reward patience. I would be a little shocked if it wasn’t Elizabeth Hendrickson’s year, but, then again, Rebecca Herbst had the… Read more »

I was rooting for Jane before viewing all the submitted performances because she was outstanding all year. All these ladies were AMAZING. Based on the reels alone:

1. Kelly Sullivan
2. Jane Elliott
3. Elizabeth Hendrickson
4. Amelia Heinle
5. Melissa Claire Egan

Jane Elliot should win, without question, but we all know the award will go to showkiller/childkiller Phelps. Is it any wonder no network wants to carry the Emmys? We can predict them with sad accuracy from miles away 🙁

Phelps and Jane Eliot are not in the same category.

I believe Tom means that the award will go to one of the actresses that were involved in the dead child storyline, for which Phelps was EP of: Elizabeth Hendrickson, Ameila Heinle, Melissa Claire Egan.

I’m rooting for Amelia Heinle.
Elizabeth should have submitted the scenes where she tells her mother. Those were better.

All the ladies were solid..I so wish GH would have submitted a better reel for Kelly.

I watch both shows and Ms Sullivan is the most deserving of the award overall based on the time period for nominations and she should win!!

But based on these reels alone, Elizabeth’s one was more moving and right up the voter’s alley so she will probably win.!!

That said, I will really love to see the mesmerizing and talented Ms Jane Elliot win !!!
But will be clapping hard also is Kelly Sullivan wins too!!

Jane Elliot is my sentimental pick, just because she’s been so good for so long, and hasn’t been recognized for her work in a long time. But Kelly Sullivan’s reel was very good. They were all good in their own way. This is a tough category to call. I also think it’s interesting to note, for all the trash that people talk about Maurice Benard and the character of Sonny, it’s very telling how many of his co-stars submitted scenes that they shared with Maurice. That says all you need to know about what kind of quality actor he is,… Read more »

Oh, Jane Elliot for sure. But why oh why was Finola Hughes not nominated? This is an actress who keeps getting better, who brings something from the depths of her soul when the scene calls for it. Her scenes with Robert and Robin were tear inducing. She was so good I was led to believe she was not acting.

andrew hass

Finola Hughes was in the Lead Actress category in the pre-noms but didn’t get a nomination.Now Finola had every right to choose which category she wanted to be in but maybe she would have had a better chance in the Supporting Actress category.

I’m going with Amelia.

Jane Elliot will (deservedly) get it but Im rooting for Amelia Heinle.

Kelly

Kelly

As much as I adore Jane Elliot, who is a fantastic actress, my vote this year has to go to Liz Hendrickson! Her portrayal of a grieving mother knocked it out of the park. What a loss for Y&R, to not have this wonderful actress on their cast list. Hope she wins!!

Johnny
Guest

My personal choice would be Amelia Heinle. I have always loved her portrayal of Victoria and she was SO impressive in the aftermath of Delia’s death. But…based SOLELY on the reels, I say Elizabeth for the win. Second…Amelia. Third…Jane. Fourth…Kelly. Fifth…Melissa. Elizabeth’s reel is the stuff Emmy’s were made for. Jane did some nice subtle work in these few scenes. It was a nice change to see her not being an acid tongued bitch…and she displayed Tracy’s inner little girl. It might have been too subtle though. Kelly’s year was 2012 when she was going full tilt as Connie/Kate. Her… Read more »

The Supporting actor nominees came in after the ladies. So I will talk about them too. Bradford submitted the exactly correct clip. He was brilliant and his emotions ran the gamut from cluelessness, to joy, to hurt, to rage. It was the first time I ever thought of Spinelli as a man. I would totally place him as front runner. I would not, however, count out Eric Martsolf. He was fantastic going through a myriad of emotions and seamlessly changing moods the way an addict would. He is a very good actor and when he goes off the rails as… Read more »

This is not a competition. If Jane Elliot doesn’t win, it’s fixed. And it’s complete bs that GH wasn’t nominated for writing. That scene alone was far and above better than most of the stuff we see on the soaps.

Beacon

Jane Elliot, hands down. Screaming and crying does not mean you are worthy of winning an award. She’s the only actress in this category that gets that.

Another strong competition. It still would have been strong, if not stronger, if the four other soaps were honored in this category!!! And the winner is…JANE ELLIOT!

#2. Amelia Heinle
#3. Kelly Sullivan
#4. Elizabeth Hendrickson
#5. Melissa Claire Egan

Like the others have said, it would be nice for Jane to win, but my vote would be for Lizzie..

I remember the scenes with Jane Elliot as Tracy telling Luke that she wanted “the whole enchilada;” not only the crumbs. I loved that scene. After watching that, I have found myself say that same thing in various situations. I love, love, love Jane Elliot! I love Kelly Sullivan, too; but, I thought that Kelly’s best scenes were when she was altering from Connie to Kate and vice versa. She was incredible! Also, when she finally remembered that Joe Jr. had raped her as a teenager.

This is far and away the most loaded category Amelia Heinle Elizabeth Hendrickson Jane Elliott STAND out: Kelly Sullivan she gets nominated : MCE for one of the – best – story lines … in years… and befuddles, how weak Y&R has become this was the standing trophy… and last of the GREAT on.

Anyone that says GH doesn’t really write for vets or respect their established characters should look at Jane Elliot’s reel–best writing in any of these noms–subtle, drawing on decades of character development and deeply respect of the power and the dreams of a mature woman. (Now if we can only hope that Tracy is going along with Fluke to catch him (and maybe find the original before he is killed–if she is really as stupid as she seems in the current story line, then it will be one giant step forward and then several slides back)

“OMG” elizabeth hendrickson : reel : did she not hit every stimuli , every button, every note… on Q I”m staggered : having watched it for the first time. I fully realize she deserves to win. as she’s telling Kevin : she shares how Dehila : can talk and talk…. ( what mother wouldn’t not get over her young one relating and communicating with) and how she’s more than bereft that she’s never going to hear her again… Chloe’ life has gone still All soaps delivered human emotion… that triggered highs and lows… this past year… with Genoa City was… Read more »

These were DAILY MUST SEE PERFORMANCES–even though NO ONE CONDONED JFP going here and killing this darling child–Delia–the next generation Abbot!

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
