Our Performer of the Week is General Hospital’s Maurice Benard!
The decline of Mike has been heartbreaking to watch...and seeing how it is affecting Sonny even harder! This week Mike’s doctor suggested that it was time to insert a feeding tube because he wasn’t eating on his own - which caused Sonny to wonder what is the best decision for his father. Maurice has done a great job of making us feel the character’s range of emotions throughout the storyline. From his sadness to his frustration, it has been a masterful performance.
Our Honorable Mention is Days of Our Lives’ Stephen Nichols!
Steve finally got the opportunity to mourn the death of his sister, Adrienne, on the anniversary of her death. It hurt to watch him talk about how he wasn’t always the brother that she deserved. Stephen Nichols has always had this ability to bring this realness and raw emotion to his performance. And we felt that this week!
