The writers of Days of our Lives got a lotta nerve submitting themselves.

Nope… wasn’t me! I think my assessment of ReRon’s writing has been on record here since his time at GH.

And while I might be the current star of the show in Salem… it doesn’t mean I’m going to make excuses for the writing.

Like Kate covering up major felonies committed by two of her sons, for example. Roman might have her back for what Phillip did, but I doubt he’s going to feel the same way about Lucas kidnapping his daughter, for Hell’s sake!

Glad for our four legacy soaps but not sure any is telling most compelling stories. Even so, my money is on General Hospital.

Of the two I watch, I’d say GH is a bit better only because Y&R is so repetitive — Billy and/or Victoria maniacally gunning for Adam over and over again. Abby and Devon EVERY DAY. Nothing ever happens.

I’ll be good with #YR or #GH.
#Days DOES NOT DESERVE THE AWARD. They are awful. #RonCarlivati should be fired. Sick of him writing horrible trashy stories and destroying every character possible. I’ve had enough of him.

OMG me too.Every word you say is true. Why has he spoiled every SL by having this devil crap mixed in. Also, I can’t stand the devilboy of being given all the camera time. I don’t feel this young man has enough talent to be given the time and credit for all the scenarios.

Well, it’s not because of the young man. He’s the “vessel”. It’s ME who is getting all the camera time!

Amen to that. They should be ashamed for their writing, not seeking kudos!

These awards lose credibility when they allow shows with ridiculous camp plots & connect dot dialogue to be submitted & possibly win.

There is no competition when GH is on the list. Great writing by that team.
