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.

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.
