Anthony Geary ('General Hospital')
Anthony Geary ("General Hospital") is tied with David Canary ("All My Children") for winning the most Emmys as best lead actor (five). His victories: 1982, 1999, 2000, 2004, 2006. He's also had six additional nominations. If either Geary or Canary wins this year, they may tie Erika Slezak as the biggest champ overall (that is, if she doesn't win again too).
Initially, Geary's character, Luke, was a hit man and rapist who ultimately married his victim Laura ( Genie Francis), resulting in the greatest love affair in daytime TV history.
Geary's role on the show has morphed through the years. As Luke became more heroic and sympathetic, Geary took on the side role as Luke's villainous lookalike cousin, Bill Eckert, who was killed off in the early 1990s.
