Well, I guess the CBS bloc-voting worked. I guess tomorrow night will be more of the same. Should I even bother tuning in?

I believe there is much more going on behind closed doors when it comes to the these awards..
It would be actual if people voted and the awards were not decided by payed off panels / media political hand shaking..
I think we all know there is hidden agendas behind all this hoopala, if not, then why have the awards if it did not benefit networks..
Also known as ; greasing of the wheel ..

LMAO .. they actually gave awards for;

SCENIC DESIGN , CASTING , COSTUME DESIGN , HAIRSTYLING , LIGHTING DIRECTION , SOUND MIXING , TECHNICAL DIRECTION .

Y&R and BB took them all..
Two words.. biased/rigid and ridiculous..

CASTING- should have been GH –
the casting was outstanding ..
SCENIC DESIGN – should have gone to GH..
Its action dock scenes, police cars, boats , on the waterfront etc also the accident road and woods was outstanding..

Theses awards are all for putting on a show and not much more..
For many years the awards have terrible..

Well I see no reason to watch the show tomorrow. I hate that some networks feel the need to fix the outcome….really unfair to the fans

Days shouldve got it for scenic design for its wonderful use of a couch that doesnt get dirty from bird poop in the town square, and for the clever way it recycles one set that is used for the police set, Jennifers hospital office and also as Bradys examining room after he was attacked in the park! lol

Congrats to the winners.

Glad to see Y and R win since most of those awards are for what happened before JFP got her hands on the show.

Watching the show right now, one of the worst things ever to air on TV, an embarrassment to Daytime.

Agreed ..it was so obvious that CBS rigged the show. It was a joke! GH and Days got robbed. I guess they think we are stupid?? Because we do watch the shows, we know enough to tell the difference.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
