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!

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Jackée Harry to Appear in Final Season of FX’s ‘Pose’

You can never get enough Jackée, right? Right! The popular actress who recently made her daytime drama return in a new role on Days of our Lives as Paulina, will also be seen next month in the third and final season of the hit and groundbreaking FX series, Pose.

The final batch of episodes bows on May 2, 2021, and Entertainment Weekly revealed that Harry will be part of the last season.

In a tweet on social media, Jackée expressed: “And I’m SO relieved to finally tell you to catch me on the final season of #PoseFX  Consider me honored and over the moon!!!!””

For those who don’t know, Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore and Hailie Sahar, who co-star alongside Billy Porter, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard and Jason Rodriguez. The Golden Globe-nominated drama also features the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.

In the final season of Pose, it’s now 1994 and ballroom feels like a distant memory for the character of Blanca who struggles to balance being a mother with being a present partner to her new love, and her latest role as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS becomes the leading cause of death for Americans ages 25 to 44, Pray Tell contends with unexpected health burdens. Elsewhere, the emergence of a vicious new upstart house forces the House of Evangelista members to contend with their legacy.

Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, who executive produce alongside Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh and Janet Mock. Our Lady J is co-executive producer.

Excited to see Jackée featured in the upcoming season of Pose? Enjoying her as DAYS Paulina? Comment below.
