Awards central — The Casting Couch Awards nominees announced!

On Nov. 5, The Casting Society of America’s 23rd annual Artios Awards will be handed out — and AMC’s Judy Blye Wilson, ATWT’s Mary Clay Boland, Days’ Fran F. Bascom, GL’s Rob Decina, and Passions’ Jacklynn Briskey are all nominated. Ironically, Bascom was fired by NBC this summer and replaced with Y&R’s former casting director Marnie Saitta. If you’re an envelope.com nut and plan to bet on who’ll win, it’s safe to say Passions has no chance in hell. I mean, seriously — casting? Whatevs.

What a joke the Artios are. Judy Blye Wilson!? Fran F. Bascom!? Jacklynn Briskey!? These women should be fired. Well, one of them was canned-Bascom. Briskey picked some of the worst actors to ever appear on TV!!!!! No wonder awards in general are losing credibility at an alarming rate. Crap nominations = crap winners. At this point, I do not know which awards are worse. It appears that the WGS, PGA & DGA have a modicum of respect intact. But that is not saying much.

The winner? Mary Clay Boland

robbed of the award? Mark Teschner

Um, why is Mark Teschner not nominated? He has an incredible eye for casting! The actors he's brought on in recent years are a huge part of why I endure GH!

I don't watch many of the shows listed, or haven't been watching them long enough that I feel I can comment, but I will say that Bascom should be disqualified just for casting Shelley Hennig as Stephanie Johnson. It is rare for casting to bother me as much as that choice.

Rob Decina is okay. Michelle Ray Smith simply is not my cup of tea and I just can't warm myself up to Caitlin Van Zandt cuz she has these mannerisms that bug me...like the laughing and giggling. However Marcy Rylan and Tom Pelphrey....wow what a find they were.

If you go to espn.com right now, Rob Decina of GL is being interviewed by Mike & Mike in the Morning who have Mark Schlereth on as their special guest. It's the main video right now. Rob talks about giving them a part on GL.

As for the award, I've never understood casting awards. There are so many talentless duds cast every year.

As much as I like Judy Blye Wilson at AMC, she is starting to lose that touch of hers. I do not mind the nuGreenlee but the role should be filled by someone who has uumph and Sabine Singh is just good but not great. The other hires like Dre and his band are okay but nothing to scream home about....the only real great find she has found recently is Billy Miller as Wes/Ritchie. He fits into the role and is now doing good at playing a villain

PASSIONS' Casting Director doesn't deserve a nom for Jared Stevenson?! Erin Cardillo? The guy who plays Vincent?! It's not like they'll be getting an Oscar anytime soon...but I think these performers are okay and some of the best finds that PASSIONS has had in awhile.

These actors are usually stilted and stereotyped because of the really terrible writing from the show(which, from what I have seen in clips, has gotten a MILLION X better on DirecTV!).

But totally agree with most of what is said...Techner usually ALWAYS gets it right on GH and when he was on PC too.

    • Ok, where T F was Henry while Allie was off being a selfish drunken ho? Please register in order to view this content As much as I don’t like her, I still hope Wendy takes her advice and gets closer to Tripp. That boy needs someone And I see Alex is back to being his creepy self again too. I’m still really curious as to how this story’s going to turn out. Hahahaha Ron’s not gonna be granting them any interviews for a while now. But I completely agree when they say that Days’ love stories are moving too fast. 
    • With inevitable tweets like these: (he asks people to subscribe to The Nation, which now seems to exist solely for Russia apologias). I don't know who the hell the new Gawker was for - I assume just for very rich people who want to show each other how smart and above it all they are. Unfortunately, they did not have the endless money well that keeps similar sites like Jacobin choking along.

    • Hearing about DeSantis, new media hero as they realize what an albatross Trump is, ruthlessly destroying so many Florida colleges, and working to lead some in a Democratic coalition against the colleges by parroting the line that he is not against education on the history of blacks in America, it's only those icky queer people who are warping for their own gain, is demoralizing beyond belief.
