Earlier today the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, announced the Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards.
All entrants that submitted this year were judged by their peers via an online ballot. Eligible judges viewed clips containing work of each performer and were required to select their top 10 performer choices. In the case of the Outstanding Lead Actress and Outstanding Supporting Actor categories, there were ties this year that resulted in more than 10 pre-nominees.

“You Can run, you can hide… but only for so long,” states the promo the newly released promo for ABC’s “General Hospital” as Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) holds a gun on Franco (Roger Howarth), who is running loose in the PCPD, while Patrick (Jason Thompson) may soon learn the truth about Sabrina’s (Teresa Castillo) baby just as Robin (Kimberly McCullough) gets taken!
If you tuned into today’s episode of ABC’s “General Hospital” you saw two huge reveals for the character of Brad Cooper, portrayed by actor Parry Shen. In one, it was revealed that Brad and Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes) slept together after drowning their sorrows at the Floating Rib bar. In the other, it was revealed that Brad’s real father is Kim Wu from the 1980′s Asian Quarter storyline, which is famously remembered in flashbacks when a young Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) runs to the awaiting arms of her mother Anna Devanne (Finola Hughes). In fact, the scenes were recently aired when Robin once again reunited with her mother last year. In light of all the action and the drama, Soap Opera Network spoke with Shen about the huge storyline twists and turns that the soap was able to keep secret right up to the conclusion of today’s episode.
There’s so much excitement happening over at “General Hospital,” it’s tough to keep up! And when Soap Opera Network recently spoke with actress Finola Hughes (Anna Devane), she teased that the strong, layered storylines most fans have been enjoying as of late will continue to pack a punch throughout 2014. But just what will this year have in store for the lovely lady? Read on to find out!
There have been a slew of stories celebrating soap operas’ recent turnaround in the ratings game as of late, but it’s an unexpected trend worth repeating: Soaps are back, baby! And “General Hospital,” which was marching toward an ABC death similar to “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” is doing particularly well. Soap Opera Network sat down with the sudser’s very own William deVry (Julian Jerome), who discussed some particulars of why “GH” is on such an upswing. And while he was at it, he revealed some details on what’s to come in Julian’s life, as well!
Fans of “General Hospital’s” Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio) have no doubt been thrilled to see the actress front and center on the canvas as of late, but the sad cat has officially been let out of the bag: She’ll soon be departing Port Charles! But just how will Anna’s (Finola Hughes) daughter be exiting the canvas? Soap Opera Network spoke with the actress to find out!
Just as Sabrina Santiago learns that she is pregnant on ABC’s “General Hospital,” her portrayer reveals she is also pregnant in real-life, reports People magazine. “It feels wonderful. This is the most joyous time of my life,” said actress Teresa Castillo to the publication, where she announced she was expecting her first child – a girl – with husband Shane Aaron. “It feels great to finally be able to share it with the world,” she added.
Wed in 2008, the couple are expecting their bundle of joy in May, while in reel-life Sabrina will be experiencing a headache full of drama in the coming months as she debates on how to inform Patrick (Jason Thompson), who just left her in order to return to the arms and bed of his recently revealed to be alive wife, Robin (Kimberly McCullough), about their surprise post-wedding gift. Castillo tells ABC Soaps In Depth, “I feel like it was appropriate for the story. It just adds to the drama, and I love it.”
In 2014, the stakes will be raised on ABC’s “General Hospital,” or at least that’s what a newly released promo from the network tells you to expect in regards to the ongoing drama surrounding the return of Robin Scorpio Drake (Kimberly McCullough), the rivalry between Carly Corinthos Jacks (Laura Wright) and Ava Jerome (Maura West), and the Mob War that now involves Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly’s son, Morgan (Bryan Craig).
