I hope GH submitted a dramatic episode as the other show they were able to submit for consideration, to balance things out. Like the show when Oscar died. I absolutely loved the Christmas Carol show, but I seem to recall them not doing too well in the past when they submitted gimmicky episodes, like the years when they submitted shows from the Nurses Ball. The years they won for Best Drama, I think it was for more dramatic, emotional material. I don’t know that the “variety show” type stuff plays that well with the Emmy voters.

I am really disappointed that GH submitted the Christmas carol episode as one of it’s two episodes; the other episode, Oscar’s death, was the very best episode on daytime last year. I am hoping GH can win despite such a poor second episode selection. I get depressed at how many people are predicting Y&R, which submitted two episodes from Neil’s death. The show was mostly awful in 2019 – a mess – and I resent it went shows get rewarded for choosing a strong reel despite having had a poor year overall. I hope it doesn’t win and would be… Read more »

I don’t see anyone beating Y&R for Best Drama! Kristoff St. John’s death is STILL rocking the daytime world PLUS Y&R did a great job writing out his character.

If it were solely based on the clip released, Young & Restless by a landslide. Peter Bergman and Eileen Davidson shine in those scenes. So natural, so moving, such emotion — what daytime drama does best.

Thank God I missed that ep. @GH certainly has made B&B and DAYS look that much better. which isn’t much who ever for gods sake would watch a whole hour of ???? “PUSH !!! ” and then see her COMA’d. which is certainly what would have happened sooner w/watching Jenny Bear… come to .. after a year long lapse…. and/or sleep… who wanted more COMA’d for Jenny Bear…… Read more »

Who should win? DAYS. The time jump breathed fresh air into the show and into the genre. The payoffs continue.
Who will win? Y&R because the Neil episodes they submitted were gold, but they were the only bright spot in a year when the writing on this show hit a devastating rock bottom from which it has not risen.
