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… Read more »

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–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.

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).

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!

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.

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… Read more »

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.
