Best Supporting Actress: Beth Maitland (Traci, The Young and the Restless)
Traci and Cane go out to a launch party for her book and are dressed up for the occasion. I am citing Beth for the final scene where she talks about why she hasn’t been relationship oriented since the death of her beloved daughter Colleen. Very…[Read more]
I was disappointed with the psychic and Ava yesterday ): The staging, the writing, and the guest performer didn’t add up for me but Maura was terrific. Mostly I think it’s just to plant the seed for Nikolas’s return.
Peter being shot by Dante is just a silly plot device to provide an excuse for Lulu to move on to other romantic partners.…[Read more]
Now I am more convinced that Kristen will pretend to be Susan in order to hang around Salem undetected. If Zander has the one and only mask (which isn’t worn out yet from being pulled on and off on daily basis and has the magical power to change someone’s body type and voice! um, can I please have one of those?) (;
I know it’s awful of me but I…[Read more]
FreemanGriffin started the topic Actresses from each soap who deserved daytime Emmy nominations in the forum Daytime TV 3 days ago
These are actresses who deserved Emmy nominations for their roles on shows for which they did not receive a single nomination. If an actress was nominated for a different show I have included her for a role on a show in which she was never nominated. I will be curious to read your lists. I tried to keep the number down to below 5…
All My…[Read more]
I wonder if Zander gets immunity will he sell out Kristen? or “Nicole”? Or go along with it being Stefan? Nice cliff-hanger! (:
O.K., so they gave us what they left out of Friday’s episode today to explain why they are claiming it is Stefan and not Kristen – she has threatened them and their loved ones if they don’t do what she says.
I’m not…[Read more]

An Impossible Love (2018; directed by Catherine Corsini)
A superb central performance – with the best use of aging makeup for when her character is in her sixties – is delivered by Virginie Efira in this movie about a single mother raising her hurt by her missing father daughter. The film delves into the complex motives of a woman who loves…[Read more]

The Trouble With You (2018; directed by Pierre Salvadori)
This French film is a mixed blessing: saved by it’s great cast, tremendous chemistry between Adele Haenel and Pio Marmoi; Adele Haenel and Damien Bonnard; and Pio Marmoi and Audrey Tautou, and wonderful editing, cinematography and design elements. But it’s black humor is hit or miss too…[Read more]

Two films from my local French film festival and a documentary on TCM.
The Competition (2018; directed by Claire Simon) is a documentary about students trying to get into La Femis, a Parisian film school. The film is really strange in that we never really get to know any of the students well – yet the film has a strange power of accumulation. The…[Read more]
I missed a few minutes and am confused as to why Ted and Kate are claiming Stefan was behind their abductions instead of Kristen?
I wish Sonny would do something else with his life rather than Titan or DiMera or anything related to big business. I actually liked it better when he was running the restaurant/club several years ago. A complete…[Read more]
I have tried watching a little bit lately and I just don’t get the high ratings for this show? It’s so…repetitive! Not one interesting storyline is going on at the moment and they have completely changed one of the characters to the point that he is no longer himself (Thomas). The most interesting character – Rena Sofer’s Quinn – is pretty much…[Read more]

Best Supporting Actress: Suzanne Rogers (Maggie, Days Of Our Lives)
Maggie finds a bottle of booze hidden under the couch and is tempted to drink a glass; Sarah catches her and they have a heart to heart where Maggie tells of how hard it has been to lose 30 years of sobriety and how she is tempted to drink on a daily…[Read more]
I think the twist is solely to have more murder suspects when Shiloh is murdered. It makes no sense whatsoever, only if Shiloh somehow has some insider who changed the will in some way, but even that isn’t sensible. It’s bonkers!
youngsoapfan, where did you hear this information? According to every source I have found yesterday was her last air date.
The show is going to have to start some brand new stories now. I am curious as to what they will be? I am looking forward to Robin Strasser’s return to daytime, but I think her first air date will be in September. Where does…[Read more]
Farewell to Claire and farewell to Olivia Rose Keegan. Today was her last air date. Only on soaps can someone who tried to kill people over and over get all the sympathy! It was kind of gross to me but whatever – I have been watching soaps long enough to know this is how it is!
Eve getting away with it yet again is tiresome though.
The scene…[Read more]
I am glad that Julian caught Kim and she didn’t go through with her gross plan. But poor Drew ):
Liesl was pushed! Hayden? Valentin? Brad? or someone else? I say: Valentin, and I hope he gets caught and leaves the show forever! (;
O.K., so I am intrigued by Jax’s connection to Hayden!
I am still not liking Cynthia Watros but maybe in time…
The best thing about the show right now is the return of Michelle Stafford’s Phyllis! (: The scene between Phyllis and Paul was crackling with energy and verve! (:
Chelsea’s husband didn’t last long! (; I do wish they would put Sharon back with true love Nick though. Another Adam/Chelsea/Nick triangle isn’t all that great a thing imo.
Some of…[Read more]
I really want the real Nicole to return and shake everything up! (:
I am so worried that Zander will have to leave the show due to all his crimes! (; I just want him on the show every single day! (;
Why can’t they write a strong story for Adrienne? I miss Judi Evans so much! Seems like they only write for her when they bring Bonnie back on to…[Read more]
So I take it Liesl got pushed overboard? I saw the promo and thought it was her. I am worried they intend to kill her off because she knows the secret that “Wiley” is really Nelle and Michael’s baby. I sure hope not, she’s a really enjoyable occasional character who shakes things up in Port Charles from time to time! (:
Looks like the Kevin…[Read more]
I was really enjoying today’s episode when we got interrupted with “breaking news” – the Kevin Spacey trial – ): I have the feeling the next few days will be rough as the local news channels are obsessed with the Spacey trial. I prefer to watch my soaps!
I am enjoying Michelle Stafford so much on Y&R but I really wish they had just wrapped up…[Read more]
Excuse me but those heavy doors aren’t sound-proof? (;
I like the scene between Eric and Marlena very much (:
I wish Sarah was leaving with Rex… is Chloe leaving with Rex?
What will Kristen do now that she knows that Zander lied to her about Ted and Kate?
Today’s episode is a bit on the dull side but it’s still good soap! (:
