Judging the clips alone (I have no affinity to any of these actresses or shows), I would have to say Kristen Alderson (GH). Hunter Haley King’s reel is really more about Michelle Stafford’s performance; Lindsey Morgan is surprisingly good, yet pales to Alderson; and Jacqueline Macinnes Wood displays the widest range of emotion, yet her performance is overshadowed by a badly overwritten scene.

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood who plays Steffy B&B for the winner. Still mad they don’t have Sharon case for best actress. That MCE who plays Chelsea and Avery Y&R better NOT win. They really are boring

Rickie, I agree, Hunter’s reel is more about Michelle Stafford as Phyllis than it is about Hunter as Summer. She made a colossal mistake picking those scenes for her Emmy reel. So, with that said, I don’t see Hunter winning at all. I think she’s the one with a very, very long shot to win. As for Jacque Wood, I only got through maybe 3-4 minutes and I didn’t care for her reel at all. While someone said that she showed the most range, it was a blase scene for me. I saw it on TV and even I didn’t… Read more »

I think it close between Wood and Alderson, with Morgan possible spoiling. King gets outshined to much by Michelle in her reel and does not standout.

Even after watching the reels, I’m not sure why Lindsey Morgan or Hunter King were nominated, however Jacqueline Woods and Kristen Alderson are incredibly talented actresses and both their reels are extraordinary. But, I have been a fan of Kristen Alderson longer, I grew up watching her and being dumbfounded over the many years she was overlooked for these awards and as such, I have to root for her this year. 🙂

My vote goes to Jacqueline Macinnes Wood for the wide range of emotion she portrays in these scenes.

Wide range??? Are we watching the same clips? The dialouge alone was a snooze fest and her delivery was slightly monotone and sorry boring. The background makes her look like she is delievery an outstanding performance, but she was just ok.

Hmm – I’m not really sure why you chose my comment for response when others mentioned range as well. However, I will add to/amend my original comment with the following (also mentioned in other comments): I preferred Jacqueline’s acting in these reels because it was subtle and felt real and effortless … and, for me, was the one I felt most deeply. Sometimes, the greatest depth of feeling comes in quiet, nuanced scenes like these. Now I would place Kristen’s reel second … but her performance did not create the depth of emotional reaction for me that Jacqueline’s did. But,… Read more »

Kristen Alderson’s reel was far and away the best. She’s been long overdue for some recognition of her work, and I think she’ll get it this year.

Lindsey Morgan’s reel was also very good. I was critical of her nomination when the names were announced, but now I can see why she made it this far.

The other two were also good in their own way, although I’m admittedly not familiar with either of their work. I would say this should be a GH category on Emmy night.

I loved the clip from B&B (Liam and Steffy) Jacqueline M Wood was mesmerizing. Hunter Haley King (Y&R’s Summer) was played to perfection – both Jacqueline and Hunter ran the gamut of emotions in their clips. Kristin Alderson has one range and her mouth twisting drove me crazy. Lindsey Morgan is a great actor but she should have chosen a reel that displayed a wider range of emotions. It was all one-note.

Jacqueline Mac Innes Wood has really done a remarkable job delivering such a wide range of emotions. I had to watch that reel two more times. She definitely has what it takes to win that EMMY this year.

Kristen Alderson – Cole and Hopes’ dying scenes are forever etched in my memory banks… Starrs’ performance was gangbusters’. Period. what a way to make an entrance. thereafter… it took me awhile… to get in to her and Michael. Lindsey Morgan – it wasn’t till Trey’s death did she start delivering… if this was her acting debut – and with big shoe’s to fill… ie: recast… i have to agree with Rickie… she surprised me… as well. you know.. now that she’s gone… if this is an acknowledgement.. on how tough this business is… then take this Lindsey and go… Read more »

I do not get these reels they are so long. I do not want B&B but was intrigued by Jacqueline’s reel it seemed so real. Also the only one without screaming! But overall these seemed like a snooze fest for all of them.

Kristen Alderson gave by far the most moving performance. Hunter ‘s mouth moves weirdly so I had trouble watching her scenes . The other two OK. But I can see from watching these, why some people win. If you only judged by what they submitted, I agree. I have had trouble in the past when some names had been called Now I see why.

For me it’s only between two KA and JMW. When I was watching B&B… SF and JMW were my faves. I got so very tired of the Steffy/Liam/Hope triangle to the point of disgust that as much as I like her and think she will be acting for a long time and is such a beauty… I was not looking forward to watching it again… but she was good! I think she may have had better last year… but maybe not all in one episode. KA did well and based on the reel she will most likely win. KA tends… Read more »

I feel the exact same way, Heidi. I am pulling slightly more for Kristen, but I think Jacqui is also incredible. As long as it is one of those two lovely ladies bringing home the gold, I’ll be happy.

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Check out the full chat with Brook and Tabyana below.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

Courtesy/ABC

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
