The riveting series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story has proven to be the perfect place for ABC Daytime alums to show off their skills, as three former stars from the network's soaps have landed Primetime Emmy Awards nominations for their work on the series.
General Hospital's Ricky Martin (ex-Miguel Morez), One Live to Live's Judith Light (ex-Karen Woleck), and All My Children's Finn Wittrock (ex-Damon Miller) are in the official race for Emmy gold this year. Martin and Wittrock are both nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie category, while Light has been listed in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie category.
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, which explores the murder of designer Gianni Versace by spree killer Andrew Cunanan, is also up for an award in the Outstanding Limited Series category.
Martin charmed GH fans as the sexy Miguel from 1994 to 1996. After leaving Port Charles, he went on to become an internationally successful music star.
Light wowed as OLTL's abused prostitute Karen from 1977 to 1983, a role that landed the actress her first Emmy. After quitting the drama series (the only job she ever quit), she went on to find mainstream fame in the classic sitcom Who's the Boss?
Wittrock starred on AMC as Liza's much younger lover from 2009 to 2011. He later went on to appear in a variety of high-profile projects like the film La La Land and the television show Masters of Sex.
The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards are scheduled to take place on September 17, 2018. For a complete list of this year's nominations, click here.
