I think that Jill gets the reputation she earned. She has made some very bad decisions over the years and seems to have an open disdain for the genre as a whole, and especially for its actors.
She focuses too much on trying to make the shows something they aren’t meant to me and loves to refocus her soaps on 3-4 characters who she allows to…[Read more]
I hear that in addition to Greg Vaughn, Kristian Alfonso, Victoria Konefal, Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith and Galen Gering that we can expect at least two more cast members to exit by years end.
I don’t watch DOOL but my money is on Deidre Hall or Bryan Ditallo, even if they are only recurring or visiting.
Boidiva02 replied to the topic Cate Blanchett Vs Kate Winslet. Who do you think is better? in the forum Movies 2 weeks, 5 days ago
I’m with the majority here. Blanchett is indeed the superior actress. I feel like Cate Blanchett more easily becomes her character and creates an actual character; whereas Kate Winslet always feels like Kate Winslet in a period costume trying to give a decent performance.
My hunch is that within a few months she signs a contract for GH or B&B. Those are two soaps I could see actively courting her. She could easily portray a Cassadine on GH or a new Forrester family member on B&B.
Boidiva02 replied to the topic What are you binge-watching to get through the pandemic and why? in the forum Television 4 weeks ago
I’ve been doing a lot of binge watching this pandemic and here is what I’ve watch thus far:
I started bingeing “America’s Next Top Model” but out of 25 seasons (I think 23 are on Hulu) I only got through four before quitting.
Now I’m watching “E.R.” and am mid-way through season 8. This is a show I always watched in reruns but for some reason…[Read more]
I’m sure this is old news to you all by now but…
After nearly 30 years, DOOL has fired long time Executive Producer Greg Meng.
This is a huge shock as he’s worked at Corday Productions and DOOL since 1989.
What do you guys think? I’m guessing…[Read more]

Thanks all for your feedback.
Personally I absolutely loved her work at OLTL and think she did some very interesting stuff while there; and I was NOT a fan of her work at GH. She was a huge let-down after the glory of Wendy Riche.

I know that JFP isn’t exactly beloved around her (and I really am not a fan either), but I’ve always thought she at least did a great job at AW and OLTL. I was reading a bit about her today and found out she resigned from AW in 1996, does anybody know why she resigned from that show?
Also, why did she leave OLTL, was she fired or did she quit?

OMG this is a very sad loss. I will always fondly remember his work on “AMC”, he was one of the finest actors on “AMC” in the early 1990’s. His work with Eva La Rue as Maria was memorable for sure.
Without JT is a possibility, kind of like how BSB continued on w/out Kevin for a few years. But the problem is that JT was basically the lead vocalist of Nsync and by far and away the most popular member of the group. So I’m not sure how popular a reunion would be w/out him.
Although he was always my personal least favorite (I’m a JC guy anyway!)
I would love to see a proper biopic about the early life and rise to fame of Madonna. But I suppose it is unlikely to happen while she’s still living; she’s likely to block any attempt at this.
I would also love to see somebody make a movie about the absolutely bizarre, insane and dramatic life of Marlon Brando.

I was a huge fan of his work. In particular his work on AMC and OLTL. This is very sad. May he rest in peace.
My favorite Oscar speech of all-time is Halle Berry. So emotional, genuine and memorable. Halle was truly in her moment of glory!
I think a close second would be when Meryl Streep won for “The Iron Lady” and had a moment of self-deprecation by saying “when they called my name I had this feeling I could hear half of America going, “Oh no! Oh,…[Read more]
A few names that come to mind as deserving (and possibly long overdue) for an Oscar win:
Brenda Blethyn: Two Oscar Noms (1997-Lead; 1999-Supporting) and no wins. She doesn’t get the same kind of roles she was in the early half of the new century but she’s still a fantastic performer and should be capable of landing a plum supporting role that…[Read more]

So it’s gonna be a very boring (likely lip-synced) super bowl halftime show right?
I am so upset by this news. She was a fantastic and accomplished soap opera actress and I will fondly remember her work as both Alexandra on “GL” and Vanessa aka Proteus on “AMC.” I always looked forward to her scenes and especially on AMC when she would share scenes with Vincent Irizarry or Josh Duhamel. I used to love when Vanessa and Palmer…[Read more]
Maybe true but my point was more about ability to maintain commercial success and remain popular and relevant within the music industry. Something Fiona has not been able to do (or maybe doesn’t want to do?)
In the late 1990’s Fiona was all over the place; a huge bonafide star. She was super famous and by 2006 it was like she had never existed.
That said, in my opinion here are some of the least deserving winners of AOTY (talent aside, these winners are imho not so deserving):
1997- Falling Into You (Celine Dion): By all accounts Celine has a lot of talent as a singer. But this album was not a very good album; was nothing special and frankly should not have beaten Beck, The Fugees,…[Read more]
I know Billie is very popular right now, but she reminds me a lot of Alanis Morissette or Fiona Apple. In that they found massive success when they were really young, got extremely popular and influential and I suspect will find it very difficult to maintain that level of success and influence in the long term. She might put out 2-3 more albums…[Read more]
I haven’t voted in years, but only because once OLTL and AMC went off the air I basically stopped watching soaps. And I don’t want to skew the voting since I don’t watch any of the remaining four soaps enough right now to be familiar enough to vote in a fair manner.
