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 »

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
