Days of our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful, And The Young and the Restless Receive GLAAD Media Award Nominations!

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 »

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
