Days of Our Lives & The Bold and the Beautiful Score GLAAD Media Award Nominations!

The 24th Annual GLAAD Media Award nominations have been announced this morning. And each year, the GLAAD Media Awards celebrate outstanding representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and their allies on TV, in film, and in the news. These are the images and stories that bring the LGBT community closer to equality.

In the Outstanding Daily Drama category it will be Days of our Lives nominated for Sonny and Will’s love story featuring Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith vs. The Bold and the Beautiful with Caroline’s My Two Moms story featuring: Crystal Chappell, Joanna Johnson, and Linsey Godfrey who have been recognized for their achievements.

In addition, HBO’s vampire saga True Blood was nominated in the Outstanding Drama Series category and will go up against: Smash, Degrassi, Grey’s Anatomy and the L.A. Complex!

The GLAAD Media Awards will be handed out in three ceremonies:  New York on March 16th, in Los Angeles on April 20th and in San Francisco on May 11th.   Last year, the Daytime category was handed out in ceremonies in San Francisco.  You can view the complete list of GLAAD Media Award nominees here.

So soapers, who would you vote for between DAYS & B&B for their depictions? And in a world that stresses diversity and the importance now more than every of equality among all human beings, would you like to see a fully fleshed out story encompassing more gay characters on the other current daytime soaps?  Yes, General Hospital’s Felix was just brought on the canvas too, but we have to wait to see if more of a story also develops for him, or not.  Weigh-in!

It could not be any show but DAYS. I thought ATWT and OLTL did an awesome job with its gay storylines but this DAYS plot has me riveted!

B&B did not do service to its lesbian aprents storyline, but at least something is there!

Make it a fourth from me! DAYS all the way. Yes this latest bit with Gabi has really soiled a lot of the great work done before it, but overall DAYS put A LOT of time, effort and good work into Will’s coming out, everyone’s acceptance and Will and Sonny’s love story. Beautifully written, gorgeously acted and executed better than nearly any other show’s (tied maybe only with ATWT).

CC on BB does not an award make. They had a 2 week story and then zilch. It doesn’t even rank.

You’ll notice that Y&R gets FAR better ratings than DAYS. Maybe Y&R likes being #1 and doesn’t want to risk losing many of their viewers.

The gay storyline is not why DAYS is losing ratings, the bad writing is. People want less Dannifer and Sami triangles and more of our vets!

hollywood smugly congratulates itself for being “tolerant” w/ these glaad “awards” w/c are a joke. hollywood screams against homophobia but is openly racist to people of color and especially to Asian americans. of course it’s bec hollywood thinks the white lgbt community is a more “special” minority group compared to African americans and latinos and especially Asian americans! glaad “nominated” smash?! is glaad seriously that delusional?! ny based smash got rid of their 1 Asian romantic leading man who was not portrayed as your stereotypical asexual Asian american char. hollywood loves to portray Asian males as asexual yet who wrote… Read more »

I’m glad you see the irony in all this “tolerance” .. GLAAD is a powerful lobbying group and has successfully bullied TV and movie producers into including gay characters on almost ALL shows – never mind that ALL LGBT people make up only 3% of the population. They must be represented, DAYS makes it look like 20% of their town of Salem is gay. Other minorities, that actually have far MORE members in the REAL world, are barely seen in soaps or any other form of entertainment, especially in comparison to how many gay characters we see all the time!… Read more »

that’s what bothers me abt hollywood and glaad. they act like the most “enlightened” and “tolerant” people when they can be the most backward. you can forget abt religious people being portrayed objectively. all hollywood churns are psycho bible thumpers who are not tolerant and must be “educated” bec they are stupid. The complaints abt very little lgbt representation are hilarious! More like too much lgbt representation. And of course majority of those chars have to be white lgbt people. cnn reported that only 3% of the us population identify as lgbt and they wouldn’t get that wrong bec the… Read more »

To maddiehayes: It’s great that you understand the larger issue of racial discrimination from hollywood and glaad. You’re the only person on here that contributes to the discussion on discrimination. it’s hilarious for people to say gays are being bashed by hollywood and the mainstream manhattan media. And people who say that hollywood is all abt money are delusional. the best example to refute that would be the global phenomenon jeremy lin. hollywood refuses to give funding to the documentary on jeremy lin bec hollywood’s racist and they don’t want Asian americans to succeed at fields like entertainment and sports… Read more »

Hi BC, oh yeah, I am fully aware of how Hollywood brainwashes people into thinking their way – don’t forget, half the population has below average intelligence! LOL .. a recent Gallup poll shows that more than half of the populace think that 25% of the population is gay! (from overexposure in the media, no doubt). Another Gallup poll shows that white/caucasian is the LEAST likely race to be gay. African American being FIRST, Asian second. And the only gay people I know personally are not white, one is Asian, the other Hispanic. The Asian Americans I know (I also… Read more »

To maddiehayes: great contributions from you on this topic. of course majority of hollywood’s lgbt chars are w/ white actors despite gallup refuting that. Typical “diversity” from stupid hollywood. hollywood’s hatred for Asian americans is typified by the jeremy lin phenomenon. hollywood’s abt social brainwashing and jeremy lin’s success refutes the narrative that hollywood has crafted to bash Asian americans. CAA manages not only “actors” but NBA athletes. It’s bec hollywood has realized there’s a limit to hollywood’s profitability w/c doesn’t apply to sports. nba is not affected by dvr. hollywood is. there’s no pressing concern to watch a dumb… Read more »

A few years ago here in Canada there was a case where a gay student was being banned from his Catholic high school prom because he wanted to bring a date. The reasoning at the time was because his life style conflicted with morals and the teaching of the Catholic Church allowing him to attend would be condoning his behavior. As a Catholic, I remember thinking at the time, if morality was the issue, then why weren’t straight students who practice immoral behavior against the teaching of the Church not banned as well? Why was one particular immoral behavior the… Read more »

the thing I hate is the way the media is using propaganda about gays to change people’s minds, thus promoting social engineering, like gay marriage. If people knew the truth about the gay lifestyle, they would never vote in favor of “normalizing” it and making it “equal” to the relationship God ordained. As I said in another post, more than half the population believes gays make up 25%. They don’t personally know anywhere near that amount of gays, they just see them on TV. And yes, I am fully aware that we are ALL sinners, we should not judge others.… Read more »

Days and Degrassi, my two favorite shows on TV, really deserve the award, B&B focused too much on the love triangles and too little on the lesbian storyline. I love WilSon! Go DAYS!

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.
