AMC, GH & Y&R Receive WGA Nominations! OLTL Snubbed!

In another possible “what were they thinking?” moment in award show nominations, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) has announced this years nominees for achievement in television, news, radio, promotional writing and graphic animation.

And in the Daytime Drama Categories, the nominations went to writing teams from The Young and the Restless, All My Children and General Hospital.  However, One Life to Live was left out!  We have heard that OLTL may have submitted Shane’s suicide attempt and part of the bullying storyline for contention, but we can not confirm that at this time.

The rules for submission and judging in the daytime category are this:  Each daytime drama submits three scripts and a précis which is a recap that covers an integrated period of time and describes what has been happening on the program, and the relationships of the characters.  WGA does not comment on what episodes were submitted.

We congratulate all the nominees and are left scratching our heads for no nomination for One Life, which day in and day out had the most dramatic and clever scripts this past year.  After the jump, you can see the list of the writing teams and individuals receiving a nod.  The winners will be announced in simultaneous ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York on February 19th.

All My Children, Written by Jeff Beldner, Lorraine Broderick, Joanna Cohen, Lisa K. Connor, Chris Dunn, Lucky Gold, Kate Hall, Chip Hayes, David Kreizman, Dave Ryan, Donna Swajeski, Rebecca Taylor, Addie Walsh; ABC

General Hospital, Written by Meg Bennett, Nathan Fissell, David Goldschmid, Robert Guza, Jr., Karen Harris, Elizabeth Korte, Mary Sue Price, Michele Val Jean, Susan Wald, Tracey Thomson; ABC

The Young and the Restless, Written by Amanda L. Beall, Tom Casiello, Susan Dansby, Janice Ferri Esser, Jay Gibson, Scott Hamner, Marla Kanelos, Natalie Minardi Slater, Beth Milstein, Michael Montgomery, Anne Schoettle, Linda Schreiber, Sarah Smith, Sandra Weintraub, Chris Whitesell, Teresa Zimmerman; CBS

What?! I don’t even know what to say. AMC over OLTL? Shocked is understatement. Why didn’t they submit Matthew confessing to Bo and Nora that he killed Eddie Ford? This was a shocker for many fans, very emotional.

Really? OLTL not nominated? Wow.

Regarding the sin of omission here, could it be a factor that OLTL works its magic in New York City in relative obscurity compared to the dramas based in Los Angeles?

I question the AMC nomination but must say I am relieved B&B was not among nominees. I am so disappointed with that show ‘s storylines and plot points.

OLTL has NEVER, EVER gotten the recognition it deserves. I’ve watched every soap over the years & I am constantly amazed by who/what wins the awards. Never has made sense & OLTL being cancelled is just another thing that will never make sense. I am sick over & sick of thinking about it. I hate the View, the Chew, the Revolution & anything related to ABC. I have not watched GH in weeks, except to check in once in a while just to see if it is going anywhere new-it never seems to be-and although great things could come from… Read more »

Am I shocked? No. Once again, oltl is overlooked as it has been in the past. Gh which is the most poorly written show in daytime garners a nomination. It is so dishearting. Oltl deserves to be recognize and honored for delivering the best pieces of writing in daytime. Hopefully, but im not holding my breath, that the emmys will do oltl justice n honor them with distinction in outstanding drama writing and directing teams.

I find it laughable that AMC would be nominated for any award that would have to do with writing, being that it was the poor writing over the last several years that was the cause of the downfall for AMC. And regardless, of what anyone had to say, the writing for me continued to stay in the toilet after Pratt, the gruesome two-some Kreizman & Swajeski and finally Lorraine Broderick…..

I must say that I’m very shocked that AMC and GH were nominated over OLTL when it is both of those shows that had/have the worst writing teams on record! So does Y&R but apparently for the episodes that Y&R submitted, MAB, SH, and HS were never around those scripts!

Doesn’t make a bit of sense, but neither do the Emmy nominations every year. I guess we should just stop expecting common sense out of decision makers in this country. Everything’s political and dollar driven.

Snub? Politics? Money? Stupidity? Ignorance? Neurological deficit? Or, the literary aesthetics of Neanderthals?

I went on Youtube today and was re-watching the Bullying scenes with Shane, Rex, Gigi, Blair & Echo….OMG, it still makes me cry. Everyone was so spectacular. When Shane was on the roof, and Gigi was pleading with Shane to not jump and telling him how he was the greatest thing to happen to her…it was just too touching. And Shane’s speech about how he wanted to be the kid to not sit on the sidelines and join in on the fun, and not have to worry about his sickness…the tears just kept flowing. It’s stories like that, that make… Read more »

OLTL is the best soap on tv EVER!!!! The writing has been great this year. Why does everyone treat the show as the poor stepchild when it is the real Cinderella story. Soaps don’t get any better.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
