I have been a loyal watcher for many years… since 81….that is 1981…. there has not been good writing for many years.. the only good writing I have seen has been the Carly addicted drug storyline and that was well written… maybe that was what was submitted…

Much more gracious words than what Marlene used following her firing. So happy for DAYS and this award for them. No matter what others (critics and nay-sayers) say, DAYS is a wonderful and entertaining show. Is it perfect? No, but I will forever root for this underdog.

I was elated, yet very surprised when Days of Our Lives won the writing Emmy for 2012. I wanted to see Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas Jr. accept the Emmy, but they were not there. Nice statement from them. Now Days needs to rehire them!

I was so surprise that days won, because days is usually snub at the emmys.
