One Life to Live's Kathy Brier (Marcie McBain) is on this Sunday's (July 13th at 9 pm EST) episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Check her out on the USA Network! The episode re-airs on NBC on Saturday, July 19th. The episode is titled "Reunion" and here is the official description:
When the host of TV's "Rock 'n' Talk" is bludgeoned to death by a champagne bottle, Logan and Wheeler's investigation into the seamy music world involves Jordie Black, Wheeler's favorite rock star from high school, whose secret past pushes Wheeler's admiration to the brink. Catch the premiere of "REUNION" this Sunday at 9/8C!
Before I continue I want to give a shout out to Judi Evans. I have loved your work since Another World and to see you nominated nearly 10 years after that great show ended is satisfying.
I am still in shock from this category. Not that any of these actress are undeserving, because each is a consummate actress. However, the fact that Kathy Brier or Catherine Hickland didn't receive a nomination for their work on One Life to Live is a crying shame. After losing the award to Genie Francis last year I sort of expected to see the Bold & Beautiful's Lesli Kay nominated, even if it was a sympathy nomination. I really wish there was some way to include both of Guiding Light's Gina Tognoni and Marcy Rylan in this category. Both had great a great year. Then we have General Hospital. Unlike some actresses who were obviously leads on their respective show Carolyn Hennesy is the definition of a supporting actress and while Rebecca Herbst's status as a supporting actress is questionable considering how much air time she receives the fact that she wasn't nominated for the scenes surrounding Emily's death is striking.
Looking at the prenominations list below and comparing it to the nominees above is there anyone who you feel is missing from this list or who should be on it instead of someone else?
