30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards Drops Daytime Drama Category

This morning, nominations were announced in TV, film, and journalism categories for the 30th annual GLAAD Media Awards.  The accolades are bestowed on media for their outstanding representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.

However, as first reported by TV Line, GLAAD decided to drop the Daytime Drama category this year.  As soaps fans know, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful all have LGBTQ characters on the canvas at one time or the other, and for the most part in 2018, three of the shows excluding B&B (Karla Mosley’s Maya Avant was off the canvas, while the actress was on maternity leave), did have storylines involving these characters. It should be noted that The Bold and the Beautiful had won this award the last three years running.

Hopefully, the Daytime Drama category can return next year, and it’s probably also dependent on the stories the soaps tell.

The GLAAD Media Award ceremonies will hold two ceremonies: one in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 28 at The Beverly Hilton, and another in New York on Saturday, May 4 at the Hilton Midtown.

Below are nominees in 3 key TV categories that are being presented:  For the complete list click here:

Days didn’t deserve a nomination this year, because Leo ain’t a very award worthy character. GH probably should have seen some recognition for bringing on an actual Trans actress to play a Trans character, but Terri hasn’t had much screen time, so maybe she’s not on their radar. And the Aiden storyline hasn’t really progressed to the point where they could nominate it yet, but I have a feeling it will get the nomination next year… if they don’t completely botch the writing, of course.

How stupid, and of course when Days had four gay characters that were/are on the frontburner stories.
