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 !

Shame !

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 like Daphne’s story and LOVE when Avery, Will, and Gunnar perform together. So the last season definitely holds promise.

DAYS’ Christie Clark Shares Coronavirus Health Update

Days of our Lives fans love her as as Carrie Brady, and are often very happy when they find out Christie Clark is back for a visit taping episodes of the NBC soap opera.  But that’s not what’s happening right now.  Right now, we need Christie to get all her strength back.

Clark shared via her Instagram today a health update on her battle with the coronavirus that hit both her and her husband while they have been living in the United Kingdom.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”

Send your well-wishes to Christie and Tom as they are on currently getting stronger and recovering from the virus via the comment section below.
