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.
The candidates below will now advance to the blue ribbon screening round, which will determine both nominees and recipients. The final nominations will be announced May 1.
James Franco has been appearing just about everywhere these days, but is another stint as “General Hospital’s” Franco in the works? According to a new report by Showbiz 411, the sudser’s headwriter, Ron Carlivati, is trying to make it happen!
The website reports that Carlivati wishes to bring Franco back not as the crazy art dealer who basically terrorized the town (and later was redeemed via a brain tumor excuse when Roger Howarth stepped into the role), but as himself — confronting the fictitious Franco!
We reached out to a “GH” publicist for more details regarding this storyline/actor twist, but at press time, the rep had no comment.
“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!
As previously reported, “Grey’s Anatomy” star Chandra Wilson (Dr. Miranda Bailey) will appear on the Wednesday, January 29 episode of ABC’s “General Hospital” as Tina Estrada, a patient of Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), who goes to General Hospital for her regularly scheduled appointment. According to the network, Tina comes face to face with an unfamiliar nurse in the episode and demands to know why HE is in her doctor’s office. The “nurse” is actually reformed serial killer Franco (Roger Howarth), as noted in the picture above, who is hiding out from the police after a warrant is issued for his arrest in the disappearance and possible murder of Carly Corinthos Jacks (Laura Wright).
In an interview with TV Guide Magazine‘s Michael Logan on newsstands now, Wilson reveals that her “GH” character is not that much different from her role on “Grey’s” and that if asked, she’d return to the daytime soap opera in a heartbeat!
Two years ago today the final television broadcast of “One Life to Live” aired on ABC. While the show would go on to have an additional forty episodes in 2013 via Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network, this day marks the end of the soap’s 43-year run on the alphabet network.
In honor of the show’s finale anniversary, we take a look back at some of the biggest and best “OLTL” moments – all available to watch online. So if you have a few minutes, come reminisce with us!
As previously reported, “Grey’s Anatomy” star Chandra Wilson (Dr. Miranda Bailey) will be appearing on ABC’s “General Hospital” in scenes alongside Jon Lindstrom‘s Kevin Collins on Wednesday, January 29 (previously scheduled for Tuesday, January 28 before a national preemption occurred on Friday, December 20, 2013). In honor of her upcoming appearance, the show released an image of the actress on set posing with “GH” executive producer Frank Valentini and actor Roger Howarth (Franco).
It looks like “Grey’s Anatomy” star Chandra Wilson and hospitals are a match made in heaven: She’s temporarily taking a break from her “Grey’s” Seattle hospital home and visiting “General Hospital’s” Port Charles!
“I grew up with [“GH”]; it holds such a place in my heart,” the actress told Soaps In Depth, who broke the story. “Even though we’ve shared the same lot for 10 years, I can’t talk to anybody on the lot… it’s weird to see them because they’re supposed to be in Port Charles! I have that kind of fan disconnect.”
On Wednesday, October 23, “General Hospital’s” Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake) will be giving ABC’s “The View” a male perspective on the day’s hot topics as the daytime star is scheduled to co-host the chatfest alongside Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy and Whoopi Goldberg. The Canadian born actor will also be chatting it up with the stars of ABC’s “The Middle” as the cast celebrates the show’s 100th episode airing that night.
“General Hospital’s” 50th Anniversary commemoration episodes have been bringing the sudser some of its highest ratings in months, and the numbers haven’t stopped soaring! According to a press release sent out by the network, the show’s recent baby and legal drama powered it to a five-month high of 2.78 million total viewers. In addition, the episodes propelled the show to its 2nd-most-watched week in five months in Women 18-49 (665,000/1.0 rating) and Women 25-54 (917,000/1.5 rating), respectively.
The drama just never stops for Prospect Park’s “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” with the latest shocking news regarding the online sudsers coming from the L.A. Times. According to the publication, Prospect Park is shelving ‘One Life to Live’ until the lawsuit it launched against ABC in April is resolved. Additionally, the company will focus on producing “AMC,” with writers having already started work on scripts for the second season of the show.
