General Hospital Leads Outstanding Younger Actress Category



Scenery chewing will be well represented at this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards — if by just one actress. Former General Hospital star Lindsey Morgan (Kristina) received a nomination in the Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series category. Co-star Kristen Alderson (ex-Starr) also landed a nomination.

Daytime newcomer Hunter King (Summer) earned a nomination for The Young and the Restless; while Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) pulled in one for The Bold and the Beautiful.

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahah.

    lol. lol. lol.

    ROTFL….

    Is this April Fool’s Day? These choices can’t be serious. Why even have a category if there aren’t nominees worthy? King or Wood are my choice.

    Go Jackie! She definitely deserves this. I really like Hunter King too but I think next year will be her year since she was fairly new yet last year.

    I agree about Lindsey Morgan but Kristen Alderson can’t act either. She never could & she never will. Don’t encourage these babies into thinking they are good actors, that’s just mean.

    I love Jackie Mack. Always have….well, not ALWAYS. But for the past year or so I have. She’s grown A LOT as an actress.

    Hunter King is good also.

    I never liked Starr or Lindsey Morgan at ALL.

    If Kristen won she would be so humble she’d have us all in tears. She was fantastic as a child actress. I could never get over how great she was as a little kid on OLTL. Im with her cause Ive been watching her since she started her career. She is a total delight as a person.

    Oh my…these noms.

    JMW definitely deserves to win this one.

    What scenes did Lindsay Morgan submit? Her ones surrounding Trey’s death were 2013. When she was held captive by Joe Jr.? When she told Trey about Keifer? Those are the only kind of emotional scenes from 2012 that I can think of.

    KA at least has a wealth of scenes to pick from with the Cole/Hope fallout, not that I was particularly impressed with any of them…

    Speechless. I don’t watch the other two shows, but GH’s noms are beyond weak. I think it is a sure thing that one of the two not from GH will win this award.

    LINDSEY MORGAN?????????? :D

    Bwahhahahahaaaaaaa! Today MUST be April 1st instead of May 1st!

    Well, I’m sure GH is now feeling sorry for letting her go – Not!

    And Kristen Alderson is not that far behind. Lol!

    Seriously, Jacqui Wood should have a total lock on this award. There is just no way for any of the others to get it.

    I’m extremely disappointed by the lack of General Hospital stars to be nominated and by the ones who were nominated. There is no way that KA or LM deserved a nomination in my opinion. And that there were no General Hospital leading ladies nominated is unbelievable!! I hope that JT, JMB and BA sweep the Emmys!!!

    I LOVE the smackdown the Academy has delivered to all of the pseudo-acting-judges who proclaim Kristen Alderson can’t act. Of course, they’ll blame the academy for its lack of taste, but they ARE the academy, so dine on THAT.

    Looking at the nominees as objectively as possible, though, I have to give the edge to Julie Marie Berman. She turned in some nice, subtle performances last year, especially the ones between Lulu and her father. I’d love to see her up there winning a deserved Emmy as a graduate of GH.

    Of course, if Kristen wins, well, that’s fine with me, too. :-)

    Im actually rooting for Kristen, im shocked that she was not nominated before for younger actress especially for her good work on OLTL (around her pregnancy and the whole cole drama)

    I’m sorry, I don’t get all the hate for Kristen Alderson!!! Yes, her introduction story was horrible, but she handled it well. And she delivered well. As for comparing her to Lindsey Morgan, yeah that’s just completely wrong. She’s leaps and bounds ahead of Morgan. I’m kinda furious that Lindsey was nominated over Haley Pullos who plays Molly because Pullos obliterated her in those scenes where the Davis girls thought Alexis was gonna die.

    Ah, Gord, you are a man of good taste. And that particular scene with AG was something special… 0:)

    I want Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) to win this year, I thought she should’ve won last year too but this year her chances look MUCH better.

    Meh, I think this is a little bit of a weak category. Can’t remember who all the pre-noms were, but I wish Kate Mansi from DAYS had made the cut as I think she’s actually a better actress than any of these four. As is, I think Hunter King is the best out of this group.
