I’d vote for;

Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) … !!

Lisa LoCicero for the win! 5 great performances but that Olivia and Ned scene was an absolute classic – Lisa’s comedy AND drama skills made it so. For that, she deserves the statuette.

I agree. Viewers think drama deserves more accolades. But, being a really good comic actor is much harder. She has no audience responding to her, unlike Lucille Ball’s live audiences when she taped I LOVE LUCY. She has only her instincts & the director to tell her if what she is doing works. That’s where Wally Kurth really helps because his timing is just as good as hers. Honestly, I’ll be happy if either Finola or Lisa win. They make any GH scene they are in instantly better. And, the fact that Olivia can steal a scene from Franco and Nina shows that LL has acting chops that most people have not suspected until now.

Agreed. I have read a lot of comments saying Olivia serves no purpose and should be dropped but I think Frank Valentini was very smart to keep LL around. Very strong and well rounded actress – and as you mention, LL (along with Finola and certain others) elevates every scene of material she is given.

One of the reels stands out way above the others (all of which are solid performances) – LISA LoCICERO is the clear winner in this category! (: Comedic with pathos – extremely touching. There ain’t no justice if Lisa Lo is not the winner on Emmy night! (: I expect her to be the winner! (:

What also stands out, IMHO, is that GH has a crack writing staff who realized a scene about Olivia drunk dialing the ASPCA fit into into soap opera. What other soap – daytime or nighttime – would do that? Viewers LOVED it! It was human, relatable, true to her character, and fit the actress’ talents *perfectly.*

FINOLA HUGHES ALL THE WAY !!!

Finola Hughes–she is cooler than the other side of the pillow.
Lisa was too over-the-top with all those LSD induced hallucinations.

They were all great reels with phenomenal performances by very talented ladies. Of all of them Finola is my favorite actress. So I must go with my favorite… Finola!!!

You better hope it is one of the gals from GH or Nancy Grahn will get on Twitter and make a complete fuss like she did last year.

KansasGuest

IIRC, GH didn’t receive very many nomination last year. That is why Grahn made a fuss. She didn’t bad mouth any winners because GH wasn’t in any categories (except Jason Thompson for Best Actor, I think).

A dead heat for me between Hughes and LoCicero!

Lisa chose the perfects scenes and I love Finola as well. All of the actresses in this category are stellar! I thing that drives me nuts in almost all of GH’s submitted reels in all categories: they’re all about Sonny!!! Enough already!

Thanx for posting these reels!

Finola or Lisa, both great, but I think Ian Buchanan was so overlooked in the acting categories, he was riveting in that scene with finola, what a mistake that he’s being let go, RC &FV are making a huge mistake there. They continue to be 50/50 with their work they either deliver or completely screw themselves over by making these little and big mistakes. As a viewer it’s so frustrating taking these high and lows to often.

Is Isn definitely out? Hope not…

I certainly hope they kill off Kiki.
No wonder KA left. This storyline is horrible and the actress playing Kiki is always smirking like the mean girl who dumped a pail of pig’s blood on Carrie White at the prom.

KansasGuest

The problem is that they have too many mob-related leads and not enough stories to go around. It’s a wealth of riches in that respect. But, eventually, something’s gotta give. I can tell that FV & RC want to move the Q’s back to the center of GH. To that end, they are focusing more on the Cassadine’s, ELQ, & corporate intrigue. But, if they really want to do that, they need to make the mob much smaller & eliminate a lot of the mob-related characters, like Duke, Carlos, & Sean. I keep hoping a huge gunfight will result in some PERMANENT casualties. Jake/Jason will eventually be a Q. I’m hoping Jordan ends up on the PCPD or WSB, & that Sloane is also killed eventually. Add Kiki & Morgan to the casualty list, and GH will have a nice, streamlined cast with plenty of talented actors still around.

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?

That is why Michael Fairman TV gives Steve and Maurice the honors of The Power Performance of the Week.

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
