You didn’t ask me to come here, Mr. Snyder. You forced me to. My time is extremely valuable. Just ask any of my patients who are waiting for me back in Dallas. And God help you if one of them doesn’t make it because I’ve been wasting my time here.

News and Updates | 5 March 2011

A few quick reminders:

Nelson Branco reveals his Soap Opera Spirit awards on Monday’s (March 7th)  Michael Fairman On-Air On-Soaps podcast, though surprisingly, I just checked and didn’t see any details. As a reminder, the nominees include:

  • OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Kathryn Hays (Kim, World Turns)
  • OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR: Jon Hensley (Holden, World Turns)
  • OUTSTANDING FEMALE ACTRESS IN A RECURRING OR GUEST-STAR ROLE:
    Lesli Kay (Molly, World Turns)
  • OUTSTANDING MALE ACTOR IN A RECURRING ROLE OR GUEST-STAR ROLE: Eric Sheffer Stevens (Reid, World Turns)
  • OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY A DUO: Elizabeth Hubbard and Larry Brygmann (Lucinda and John, World Turns) AND Eric Sheffer Stevens and Van Hansis (Reid and Luke, World Turns)
  • THE DOUGLAS MARLAND MEMORIAL AWARD: Helen Wagner, As the World Turn

The Gold Derby’s fan-voted Goldie awards voting closes next Friday, March 11th. Voting is done by PMing the moderator, so again, every vote counts. Eric and Trent are both up for Best Supporting Actor. You don’t have to vote for every category, but you do have to submit a winner and runner-up (top two) for every category you vote in. There are not a lot of CBS nominees, but there is a steady sprinkling of ATWT nominees throughout.

And as a complete non-sequitur, Van’s on-screen dad, Jon Hensley, mentioned in late 2010 interviews that he was pursuing a music career, among other things. Fans on SoapCentral’s ATWT board posted some links to demos that he’s released (would never guess they’re him!). On the LyricWriter.net site, there’s a brief bio for Jon along with links to two demo clips with Jon on vocals: “Sinking Down” and “We’ll Stay Standing.”

Incidentally, I know many LuRe fans are really creative (just look at all those fanfics and videos!) If any of you live in New England, you might find this concept interesting: the above site is run by Jon’s lyricist, Joy Gora, who describes a songwriter’s forum that is interactive and live. Really interesting for anyone interested.
