Days Of Our Lives

Days of our Lives Only Nominee for 25th Annual GLAAD Media Award For Outstanding Daily Drama Series!

Days of our Lives once again was nominated this year for the GLAAD Media Award! The GLAAD Media Awards honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of this important award 25th which recognizes powerful and important media stories from 2013, which has been a historic year in the fight for equality.  Unfortunately, the only daytime drama series currently telling a same-sex storyline is Days of our Lives with the love story of Sonny(Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey and now Guy Wilson) and the issues these two characters face within the town of Salem.  No other daytime soap opera has a same-sex storyline currently on-air, so by default DAYS is not only the sole nominee, but the winner in this category.

That being said, DAYS does richly deserve this award for keeping Sonny and Will a vibrant part of the tapestry of the canvas of Salem.   To view the complete list of GLAAD Award nominees click here!   The GLAAD Media Awards will be held on April 12 at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California,  and in New York City on May 3 at the Waldorf Astoria New York .

I guess Felix and Brad and Lucas on GH didn’t make the cut for this year’s award– maybe next year. Hopefully this year the GH writers will invest some time in fleshing out these characters and giving them a decent story line.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
