The Tragedy That Is The Daytime Emmys

User Rating: / 0
I know a lot of people were shocked that General Hospital did not receive a nomination for Outstanding Drama Series at the 34th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, but am I the only one who found the snub founded?  Next year, yes, perhaps, recognition should be awarded because the Metro Court storyline was excellent in exposition as was its aftermath which included the death of  Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon).  With this being said, my rooting is one hundred percent reserved for One Life To Live and one GH player in particular:  Julie Marie Berman (LuLu). She has been a standout performer who manages to hold her own again any actor the show decided to pair her with.

In my humble opinion, it is no surprise that Steve Burton (Jason) was overlooked in the Lead Actor Category.  I don't believe the thespian is as deft at his craft as so many others cheer and ultimately exclaimed with his Supporting win in1998;  his expressions remind me of someone who is either constipated or utterly dumbfound at all times. And as previously noted, I did not feel Maurice Benard (Sonny) was slighted as much as I am surprised he agreed to allow Burton fill the slot in a year where this mental health advocate was finally allowed for Sonny to play his long sought after mania plot. 

                     My money,  once again, is on Anthony Geary  (Luke). 
                    While it is true that the actor's unique 
                    contract affords him ample time away from Port Charles,
                    when the five-time Emmy winner is called upon to
                    entertain the audience he molds a perfect piece of
                    work every time  matter how vapid - or weighty - the
                    plot. Luke and Laura's (Genie Francis) reunion during
                    November sweeps only reinforced Geary's range and
                    reminded many of us why the supercouple continues
                    to remain so beloved.
                   I was also somewhat shocked to see As The World
                  Turns' Michael Park (Jack) land in the Lead Category.  I
                  adore Park as a person and consider him an able
                 performer, but Lead?  I don't think so.
I was disheartened to find Greg Vaughan (Lucky, GH) receive zero applause from his peers as 2006 was a busy year for his alter ego and viewers were able to really witness for the first time how capable the actor is when asked to step up to the plate.
I'm rooting for Lesli Kay (Felicia) in the Lead Actress Category; she did a magnificent job on The Bold and The Beautiful and totally immersed herself in the role as a cancer patient, proving her loyalty  to the show.  It is yet another painful reminder for GH to see a talent it once owned lost to a competitor because of its writing team's lack of creativity.

I am attending church nearly every day to pray The View does not receive Best Talk Show Host(s) or Show, mostly because I find the addition of Rosie O'Donnell a real detriment not only for the way in which she monopolizes the chatfest but also the patronizing manner she displays toward fellow co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck
