Courtesy/GLAADMediaAwards

Three daytime drama series will vie for the Outstanding Daily Drama Series Award at this year’s 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards.

Those shows scoring nods for inclusion of LGBTQ characters and storylines are Days of our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless. This is an improvement over last year’s nominations when only B&B was nominated and thus the winner in the category.

In addition, Nashville and This Is Us are on the list of contenders for the Outstanding Drama Series.

The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the LGBTQ community and the issues that affect their lives. This year’s award ceremonies will be held in Los Angeles on April 12th and in New York on My 5th.

For the complete list of nominees in all categories, check them out here.

So who should take home the Outstanding Daily Drama Series Award for the LGBTQ storylines and characters: DAYS, B&B, or Y&R? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

These awards are meaningless a total joke. When was the last time anyone dropped the word transgender on Bold and we had one kiss with Mariah one scene with her discussing her feelings with Sharon then dropped. Days is the only one who remotely deserves it and I do not watch the show so yes a joke . Just really !

There was the kiss between Maya and Zenda at the Spencer Summit after Zenda (I know I am probably spelling it wrong) fought off the thugs that were harassing her. I thought there was going to be an interesting story in the works. But instead the actor who played Zenda leaves the show and they ship him and Nicole off to Paris and the whole issue is swept under the carpet and was never mentioned again, and the show’s focus was back to what I refer to as “the usuals”.

if GH kept Lucas and Brad on the screen and gave them a decent storyline….perhaps they (GH) would have been nominated as well.

it is a shame the GH does not involve there lone same-sex couple more !

Wait a minute… You mean there are stories on soaps, other than DOOL, that involve non-straight people? What?!?….Please note the sarcasm.

DOOL is the only one that should win this award. The others don’t even deserve a nom.

GH used to feature LGBTQ storylines ..
Felix was my favourite. I loved his and the Britch’s friendship.

Lucas and Brad and Filex were awesome and brought so much to GH ( thank you RC)

Just one of many great things GH has tossed out..

I watch Y&R, looks like there is going to be more to Mariah and Tess storyline. I’m hoping as I think it’s important to have these storylines present.

Also the new SWAT show has a bisexual character. One of the main female officers-

After the way Mariah went off on Tess today, (and she had every right to), I don’t see them jumping into each others arms any time soon. But I agree with you about bringing more of these types of stories to the forefront.

At present, DOOL is the only genuine contender for meaningful LGBTQI representation. BB offers nothing but ambivalence and tokenism – should have been excluded altogether. There’s also no doubt YR’s #Teriah was taken off the stove and refrigerated. I believe these nominations were decided some time ago, YR likely nominated for Mariah/Scott, Mariah/Sharon and Mariah/Tessa scenes from days gone by, certainly not for anything of note lately. GH? Don’t even get me started on their treatment of #Brucas and #Pristina! Nathan Varni, Frank Valentini, Shelly Altman and Chris Van Etton should be ashamed of themselves – UGH!

Days deserves an award? What for? They have completely botched the return of Will Horton.

The original Will & Sonny storyline was very deserving of such acclaim, of course. But they took a big crap all over that story, first with the horrible recast, and now with Will’s return from the dead and the dumb cliche amnesia gimmick (and forced triangle with the idiot Paul character who screwed things up in the first place)

Well, at least NASHVILLE got nominated for SERIES. Lord knows the Emmys will never again acknowledge the show or its wonderful actors again. Will Lexington is a well-developed character and, in the very capable hands (and abs, just saying) of Chris Carmack, likeable and worth rooting for. I know most want Scarlett and Gunnar to reunite, but the chemistry between Will and Gunnar is ELECTRIC, so I’ll be happy if that happens instead. I don’t like this weird group Juliette is involved in, and the Maddie romance is laughable (she falls in love more often than Kaley Cuoco), but I… Read more »

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
