Anthony Geary, 'General Hospital'
Where to begin with Anthony Geary? Well, how about his Emmy history -- five-time winner for Outstanding Lead Actor (1982, 1999, 2000, 2004, 2006) with 11 nominations overall (losing in 1980, 1981, 1996, 1997, 2003, 2007). Seems like a lot of praise for one actor, but in Geary's case, it doesn't seem near enough.
His take-no-prisoners portrayal of soaps' first anti-hero, Luke Spencer, is unparalleled in its creativity and originality. He's the rare actor who can make you laugh and break your heart, all in the same moment. Hell, this year he even showed us he's got some serious singing chops. Anytime his hat is thrown into the Emmy ring, he is a major threat to take home the gold. This year is no exception.
