    Reign Edwards (Nicole; B&B). She rocked those scenes.

    I watched these twice now and Chloe Lanier is the only one who I believe is deserving of the Emmy; her reel made me understand Nelle and was full of fire! I was surprised by how much I disliked Reign Edwards’s reel: I found it one-note, lakcing in variety and vocal power, underwhelming. Cait Fairbanks is overshadowed by the brilliance of Camryn Grimes but had some nice moments. I found Hayley Erin’s reel the most disjointed and disappointing; I love her but not this reel. Olivia Rose Keegan surprised me in a good way: didn’t think I would like it. Still don’t get why it’s backwards but whatever! I think Chloe Lanier will win and should win.

    Although, she plays a highly unlikeable character, she does it well-Chloe Lanier (Nelle, GH) gets my vote. She is diabolical. I’ve never been a fan of Kiki Jerome (either actress); and I don’t know why Tessa from Y/R was even nominated. She is not a contract player and was involved in one of the worst storylines of the year, IMO.
    Nelle is cold, cruel, and nasty-all of which comes from hurt and shame. Chloe is a great actress. It’s just too bad that she’s been written into a corner, and most fans of the show would rather the character leave Port Charles.

    Agreed, dmr. It takes talent AND courage to play such a diabolical character and do it so well. Cait is a lovely presence but it’s way too soon for Emmy consideration. Hayley had some good moments but I see her turn coming perhaps next year with this harassment story unfolding. So for me it’s Chloe all the way.

    Absolutely, Jimh! Chloe has shown phenomenal acting in roles on GH not just the once, but twice! First, as the lovely young Patricia, then as the far more dastardly Nelle. To show such a range in portraying these vastly different sort of females just goes to demonstrate how very talented Chloe is….she totally deserves the Emmy!

    Rumor is she is Nina’s daughter..ugh!

    Jimh replied

    Nina seems to be in everbodys story…Maxi needs her mom(i need more Feliia)not her sister-in-law…i hope Nelle keeps gaslighting Carly and she ends up next to Heather Webber whom i sorely miss…as for Sonny Of A (bleep) im so tired of him too that i only watch a few times a week and mainly when Nelle is on…i wish she was Heather’s granddaughter instead !!!

    Phyllis Fontaine DeMarco replied

    She is a good actress, but she is certainly hindered by the poor material she has been given. Since it seems she is going to be a permanent resident in Port Charles, I wish she would be allowed to turn it up several notches. I like Nina. Make Nelle her daughter.

    Shay replied

    UGH, indeed, Jimh!!!! The notion that Nina has a long-lost child needs to be dead and buried once and for all…I’m so tired of her endless babylust….especially now that she seems to be coveting the thought of Nathan’s unborn offspring…run Maxie run!!!!! If this character is so bound and determined to be a mother, then she should be sent off the GH canvas to Western Europe, China or Africa in order to buy herself an infant via the international adoption market….

    You know a lot because Marci is nominated for LEAD actress, these ladies are for YOUNGER actress– a separate category

    Well I hope she wins the lead actress.I kind of figured it was a different category.I just wanted to say she deserves something.Don’t you think that Marci is doing a great job with her playing three roles?That must take a lot out of her.Got to give her a lot of credit for her work.

    As much as I hate Nelle, Chloe Lanier should/will win. Because, well, clearly she’s doing a phenomenal job in the role.

    Have to go with Nelle here. Probably good that she’s nominated this year, since I suspect she’s not going to live long enough to be nominated in 2019.

    Guess she’ll have to win awards in Hell when that happens, because there’s zero chance she will be heading “upstairs”

    HAVE TO GO WITH CHLOE LANIER …DO NOT LIKE THE STORYLINE BUT SHE IS A TERRIFIC CONVINCING ACTRESS…..

    It’s bizarre the way this works some years. There were a couple of years where I thought Hayley Erin did good work on GH, such as the aftermath of the death of Silas (Michael Easton character #2 of 3 on GH, lol), and then 2016 with Morgan’s death, and she didn’t get nominated. This year, her stuff isn’t that great to me, and she got nominated. Go figure. Still like her on the show.

    I’ll have to echo what some others have said, can’t stand the character of Nelle, but that’s because Chloe Lanier does an exceptional job playing the bitch, for lack of a better word. Every year when commenting on these things, I always include the caveat that I’m biased towards GH, because it’s the only soap I watch. But I think this is Chloe’s to win.

    Loved Haley Erin from the first moment she took over the role of Kiki. Chloe Lanier is very good but she needs to cut back on the tears; I don’t think there’s one scene she’s played where she hasn’t called on her eyes to do the talking. She’s got happy tears, sad tears, angry tears, vengeful tears. I’m getting all teary just thinking about it!

    But, still, she’s good at being bad. Chloe for the win.

    Chloe Lamier is extremely convincing as the scheming Nelle! Reign Edwards reel is flat no real acting range ! Haley was good but Chloe Should get this Emmy !

    None of the performances really did much for me (due in large part to the writing) but I’m guessing Chloe Lanier will win.
