It’s almost time for all your favorite soap opera actors and actresses to get all dolled up, and celebrate one of the biggest nights of the year for them: The Daytime Emmys. While it won’t be televised this year for fans to enjoy (here’s hoping there will be coverage online), the 2016 Daytime Emmys take place on May 1st, and will honor the best acting, directing, writing, as well as many other categories, as it relates to daytime drama. A wide variety of General Hospital (GH) cast members have been recognized by the Daytime Emmys in the past, still, there are some who have not be acknowledged by the Academy. Below is a list of the top five GH stars who deserve an Emmy, but have never won one.
5. Nicolas Bechtel
At the age of 11-years-old, Nicolas Bechtel is the youngest actor on this GH list, but don’t let that fool you, this kid is bursting at the seams with talent. He entered the role of Spencer Cassadine in 2013, the smart, yet manipulative, well-spoken son of Prince Nikolas. Considering how articulate and expressive young Bechtel is when playing Spencer, it is shocking that this kid hasn’t won a Daytime Emmy. The fact that 2016 marks the first time he has been nominated under the category of Younger Actor is quite surprising as well. Regardless of this year’s outcome, it is clear that Nicolas has a very bright acting future that lays ahead.Buckner/Variety/REX/Shutterstock
