This week, The Banff Television Festival announced tthat The Bold and the Beautiful has been nominated for the 31st Rockie Awards, in the Soap Opera category. All the nominees were announced at the MIPTV broadcast and digital media conference taking place in Cannes, Frances.

The Bold and the Beautiful’s nomination comes for the series’ submission of episodes that explored the sensitive subject of dying with dignity, feature an all female cast, including Betty White as “Ann Douglas,” and Susan Flannery and Alley Mills as her daughters, “Stephanie” and “Pam.”

The BANFF organizers designated 68 jury panels from over 30 countries around the world to select Rockie Award nominees in each of the 34 categories. The international final jury will screen the programs just before the BANFF festival taking place June 13-16 in Banff, Alberta, and select category winners, special jury prizes and Grand Prize winners. There will be 5 separate award ceremonies for winners from each of these 34 categories, culminating in the Banff World Television Awards on June 15, 2010. 

Chosen from 900 entries from more than 43 countries, the Banff World Television Awards, also known as the “Rockies”, is one of the world’s most prestigious events celebrating outstanding work by international TV creators responsible for the continuing evolution and originality in the industry. The Banff World Television Awards have been recognizing programming excellence for over 30 years and we are so proud that the Rockies have become one of the highest, global accolades in the television industry,” says Georges Leclere, executive producer of the Banff World Television Awards. “It’s exciting to see such superb quality in television programming and this year’s 2010 nominees are great examples of what creative talent can achieve.”

Congratulations to Betty White, since her name most likely is the reason why B&B got nommed.

The sad part is that this nomination may actually encourage Bell to keep up his writing “standards”. Bell’s formula is this: write crap all year but for 1 week, write a really soapy death to land him an Emmy. He did that w/ Storm’s suicide, Ann’s death and now w/ Beth’s drowning.

Yet none of the storylines are stretched out to their full dramatic effect. Katie’s heart surgery scar is nonexistent since she keeps showing her cleavage. She never even mentions Storm’s suicide, nor does she, Brooke or Donna attack Stephanie for making Storm go bonkers after he found out her part in Brooke’s rape, how she humiliated Donna by letting Thorne and Felicia trap her in the steam room and for all the years Steph messed w/ the Logans. Steph is still violent, so Ann’s death did nothing. Beth’s death will be like Steph pushing Jackie over the balcony all over again. Jackie, who supposedly suffers from migraines for life bec of being pushed by Steph, has even become her “best friend”. Jackie is a poor version of Sally Spectra.

Steph’s violence is always swept under the rug on B&B. Even after Beth’s death arc, Steph will be back to humiliating the blonde Logans or getting violent w/ Brooke and Donna. Everything is plot driven on B&B. Nothing is character driven.

After Beth’s death, Steph will be excused for her violence yet again, Donna will leave Eric because of it, and Donna will ask for half of FC. Then Steph will call the Logans sluts who sleep their way to the top and steal FC and the Eric from her. It’s all the same crap from Brad Bell. That’s why ratings on soaps are sinking.

Any writer who revives the past Logans vs. Forresters rivalry would mine the show’s history. The rivalry was abt the working class family vs. the rich family. Particularly, it was abt the richbitch, elitist matriarch Steph vs. the destitute slut from the valley Brooke. Where’s Steph saying “You’re the caterer’s slutty daughter from the valley. You should be serving me appetizers instead of running around in your lingerie at FC.” Where’s Brooke saying “Ridge is finally mine, so go hop on your broom and fly to a hotel since you’re dressed like a bellhop.” The Brooke vs. Stephanie rivalry should extend and include Donna vs. Pam and Katie vs. Felicia.

Bell never should have married off Tay w/ Whip, especially since he killed off Beth. Killing off Beth was a good move since Robin Riker’s acting is pretty boring. Tay could have counseled Stephen, and then married him since she’s fond of sleeping w/ and marrying her patients (Ridge, Nick). It would be a new way to put Brooke and Tay at odds w/ each other.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
