    this is so funny and great! I can’t beleive all the people on it so many stars!!!!


  2. waldo doe says:

    I greatly enjoyed the podcast and all the various comments by the actors. I am especially pleased by Carolyn Hennessey’s nom, but, I’m sad for the deserving actors like Stacy Haiduk, Brandon Barash, Tina Sloan and Laura Wright-among others-who were left out on the nominations this year. I always hope the next year will be better, but I always get let down again.

    Sarah Brown is awesome!! Loved her interview, hope she wins.

    who doesnt love Carolyn!!!!! she is too funny!!!! i hope she wins the Emmy.

    Wow! What fun-filled pod cast, Michael. This was very entertaining. I just think Carolyn Hennesy is witty and smart. She is a program all by herself. THe access you had to all the nominees was fabulous, because to listen to each and every one of them, you get a real sense of their true personalities. Their own reasons for their selections to submit was very interesting,,too. I’m split on some of my favorites nominated in the same category ,like the supporting actors on GH. I am also upset that Stacy Haiduk from Y&r was not nominated for best actress. After all, she had the story and was on camera more than anyone. Well, I’ll just have to wait for the Emmy show……

    Loved this podcast. Galen was hysterically funny, as usual. Can’t believe he’s there just a couple days out of surgery. I am not familiar with Carolyn but she was funny as well.

    Great job Michael.
