‘General Hospital’ wins support at Daytime Emmy Awards | entertainment news

PASADENA, California. (AP) – Two actors from “General Hospital” won supporting awards at the Daytime Emmy Awards.

Kelly Thiebaud plays Dr. Britt Westbourne and Jeff Kober portrays Cyrus Reno in the ABC drama. A jubilant Thibault won her first nomination on Friday night.

“I can’t believe it. I’m so shocked,” she said. “My brother, when I first started acting, followed my work and said:“ You are not so good. ”So thank you for giving me that something that can be rubbed into his face.

Kober is known for his extensive films and primetime work on shows such as Sons of Anarchy and The Walking Dead.

“Wow, thanks for making me feel so welcome during the daytime. What a trip, he said. “I like what we do for a living, it’s a game.”

After two years of advance presentations due to the coronavirus pandemic, daytime has returned to nighttime commemoration with an in-person ceremony. In 2020, the show went virtual for the first time, and last year the audience was limited.

However, the spectrum of COVID-19 was being felt.

Two of the Young and the Restless nominees were forced to leave. Lead nominee Jason Thompson, who plays Billy Abbott, and supporting actress nominee Melissa Ordway, who plays Abby Newman, have both said on social media that they have tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the show.

Kevin Frazier and Nichelle Turner of Entertainment Tonight co-hosted the 49th annual awards ceremony at the Pasadena Convention Center, where many of the nominees sat at distanced cocktail tables while others sat in rows next to each other.

Turner opened the show with a reference to the Supreme Court overturning women’s constitutional protection against abortion earlier Friday. She emphatically told Frazier that wearing the blue dress was “her choice”. The crowd cheered and some of the women stood up.

Nominated supporting actress Nancy Lee Grahn of General Hospital walked the indoor red carpet with links to the day’s news. She had a temporary tattoo reading “reproductive freedom” on her chest, the word “choice” on her disc-shaped earrings, and carried a black rhinestone purse that said “ban our bodies.”

“I dare not go through this process without talking about the devastation I felt because of what happened today and what a dark day it has been for women in this country,” said the 66-year-old actor. “We won’t allow it, we’re not going to tolerate it.”
