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!

Vicky

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 (!!!) 🙁

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.

Kelly Sullivan and hey RC she should have never been written out!

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
Guest
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

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 »

I want a tie in the SUPPORTING ACTRESS category this year! Amelia and Elizabeth NAILED THEIR PERFORMANCES and made EVERY Viewer sob uncontrollably with them for MONTHS! These were DAILY MUST SEE PERFORMANCES–even though NO ONE CONDONED JFP going here and killing this darling child–Delia–the next generation Abbot!

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
