After taking the big prize at this year’s Daytime Emmy’s (Best Drama Goes To GH) as well as the prize for Outstanding Casting (3rd year in a row), thought it would be interesting to look back into the archives to see just how GH has fared throughout the years when it comes to the highly-coveted statue count.

Can you guess which current contract actors have earned a Daytime Emmy so far? There are eight of them. Anthony Geary (Luke – six times over!), Maurice Benard (Sonny), Sarah Brown (for when she played Carly), Steve Burton (Jason), Jane Elliot (Tracy), Rick Hearst (Ric – twice for GH and once for Guiding Light), Kimberly McCullough (Robin) and Nancy Lee Grahn (for when she was on Santa Barbara). Finola Hughes (currently on recurring status playing Anna) has a Lead Actress Emmy as well.

Maurice Benard won his Lead Actor statue in 2003 during the time that he and Carly (Tamara Braun) were heating up. Sarah Brown took her first turn on the stage (in the Younger Actress category) in 1997 and 1998 soon after her dark and twisted character came to Port Charles and stole her mother’s husband. She won again in 2000 as a Supporting Actress. Steve Burton’s (Supporting) Emmy win was in 1998, during the time that Jason was caring for infant Michael because Carly asked him to claim the boy as his own. 1981 was the year that Jane Elliot (Tracy) won for Supporting Actress, just three years after joining the show. In those days, Tracy was even feistier than she is now and her main goal was to win love and respect from her father. The bad guy with the good heart, Rick Hearst, won his first GH Supporting Actor Emmy in 2004 and then turned around and won it again in 2007. Kimberly McCullough was the Younger Actress Emmy category winner in 1989 and 1996. Her first award was during the years that Robin was the wise little girl of two world-traveling spies. When she won the second time it was for her work during the Stone Cates AIDS storyline.
