Liz (lizincinti) is a moderator for all three ABC soaps on the soapcentral.com message board forums and does weekly recaps. She loves all soaps but her heart belongs to ABC. Her earliest memories are of watching General Hospital with her mother back in the days of Luke and Laura. Last year was Liz's first time as an Emmy prognosticator -- and she's back this year to see if she can up her total of correct picks.
OUTSTANDING DRAMA SERIES
2007: 2 for 8
General Hospital: Despite the fact that Y&R is leading the pack with nominations, they did not pick up a nomination for directing. I think in order to win this category, the show should have a nomination in the "Triple Crown" categories: drama, writing and direction. If Y&R is the Big Brown of the Emmys this year, then General Hospital is Da' Tara.
OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR
Anthony Geary (Luke Spencer, GH): This is the only acting nomination that General Hospital picked up. It's a tough category because 4 of the nominees have won previous Emmys. I chose Anthony because, in a way, he represents to me all those wonderful actors on General Hospital who were snubbed this year.
