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 Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
