Two actors from “General Hospital” won side prizes at the Daytime Emmy Awards.
Kelly Thiebaud played Dr. Britt Westbourne and Jeff Kober play Cyrus Renault in the ABC drama. Happy Thiebaud received his first nomination on Friday night.
“I can’t believe it. I was very shocked,” he said. “My brother, when I first started playing, watched my work and said, ‘You’re not good.’ So thank you for giving me something to put on his face. ”
Kober is known for his numerous films and major work on films such as “Sons of Anarchy” and “The Walking Dead”.
“Wow, thanks for feeling so welcome that day. What a journey,” he said. “I love what we can make a living, it’s a game.”
After two years of pre-filming presentations over the coronavirus pandemic, the day came back to honor a personal ceremony tonight. In 2020, the show was virtual for the first time, and last year viewership was limited.
However, the spirit of COVID-19 was felt. Two nominees from “The Young and the Restless” were forced to bow. Both were nominated for the roles of Jason Thompson, Billy Abbott and the supporting actress, Melissa Ordway and Abby Newman, said on social media that they were positive for COVID-19 and that they liked the show.
Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner of “Entertainment Tonight” co-hosted the 49th Annual Awards Ceremony at the Pasadena Convention Center, where many nominees sat at socially distant cocktail tables and some sat side by side.
Turner opened a program of discussions that the Supreme Court on Friday ignored the constitutional protection of women from abortion. She tells Frazier that she “chose” to wear her blue dress. People were screaming and some women stood up.
Nancy Lee Grahn, nominated for the supporting actress, from “General Hospital” walked the inner red carpet with links to the news of the day. He has a temporary tattoo with the words “reproductive freedom” on his chest, the word “choice” on his earrings and wears a black handbag with the “ban on our body” written in rhinestones.
“I wouldn’t go into this process without talking about the devastation I have because of what happened today and what a dark day for women in this country,” said the 66-year-old actor. “We won’t do it, we won’t do it.”
