I have not watched Days of our Lives (never had the time)
but-
I know Ron Carlivati’s writing, he’s a brave/bold writer.
As for Shelly Altman, she has always been
stale/lackluster.

Days of our Lives deserves the win, hands-down.

(GH has no bragging rights, for sure)

I HOPE GENERAL HOSPITAL WINS BUT I QUIT WATCHING ALL AWARDS SHOWS WHEN IT SEEMED LIKE DEMONS WERE ON STAGE. THEY CURSED JESUS & GOD.THEY ALSO USED THE TIME TO MOCK TRUMP. COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS WERE THE ONLY ONE NOT TO TELL HALF OF THEIR FANS TO GO TO HELL. SO CMT AWARDS GET AN A & THE REST AN F. THIS FROM A USED TO BE FAN OF HOLLYWOOD. BETTY WHITE WAS THE ONLY ACTRESS WITH DIGNITY.

Is it really necessary for you to offer your phony “i will pray for you” while at the same time wishing upon someone to “burn forever” and “lose so bad?” If you were really one to follow Christ’s teachings, you wouldn’t be spouting this venom, nor would you choose to defend the current president who is about as far… Read more »
