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.

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.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.
