CONGRATS to both General Hospital and Days of our Lives !!

General Hospital’s writing has been suburb !! outstanding!

It speaks volumes that when there are only four soaps left, two of them don’t make the cut for a nomination. B&B, in particular, recycles tired stories and tries to pass off exotic locations as a storyline. I’m glad WGA didn’t reward them with a nomination. Brad Bell may be good at giving his audience pretty people in pretty settings, but he can’t write a decent story to save his life. Y&R was a mess all year and just fired its HW. What’s B&B’s excuse?

Agreed and agreed. When was the last time that B&B actually told an original story? I’m three weeks behind & don’t feel any rush to try to catch up. Sad when there are now so few choices to watch.

THANK YOU WRITERS my #GH & #DAYS.Deserve to win! Thank you Michael for letting us know!!

Good to cite GH and DAYS. They are the best among the four soaps remaining.

GH may not always be my cup of tea, but darn! Those writers can tell tall tales and keep that supersoap cast in motion, spinning like plates. And with a nod to history. I just wish we would not rely so on resurrections and baby-stealing.

DAYS remains old-fashioned in its storytelling but oh, the suspense and buildup and dialogue those characters say (especially in the heat of the moment!). There remains a strong sense of humanity is Salem this latecomer to the proceedings has come to appreciate.

@ Iakovos

way to go on the marquee for both shows

it could be any day of the week. when one against the other just fulfills and takes first

these two above and beyond take over the CBS shows

I have to pull from your DAYS cull : “… DAYS remains old-fashioned in its storytelling ”

I don’t know that the numbers 3 and 4 respectively will ever overtake… CBS #1 and #2… but that’s because of mindset …

days and GH have never lost their or wavered less than the audience take

they’ve both maintained their draw… and it’s because of word of mouth

I WISH that these two would overtake and cement their loyal following as we deserve it… that GH and DAYS be lauded

Iakovos

And I think the Writers Guild has more cred than the Emmy nominators. That is why I am so pleased with how this is going. Thanks for the comments, Patrick. Maybe GH and DAYS will rise up, huh? I am doing my best to make that happen. Will admit I follow the other two and watch them some. Y&R was once my favorite. I miss ATWT the most.

CONGRATS TO GENERAL HOSPITAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They DESERVE TO Win For This Too

Kevin

Since They Were Shunned At The 2014 Daytime Emmy Award WHICH WAS A TRAIN WRECK…. Because They Didn’t Give General Hospital And Equal Fair Chance To Win Anything

It Was All About Jill Farren SOAP OPERA KILLER Phelps

I Am GLAD That The Young And The Restless WAS NOT NOMINATED

That Show (Y and R) And Jill Farren Phelps Don’t Deserve Another Damn Award.

Caleb Rogers

I am a big fan of Days of Our Lives. It should win big.

Way to go “GH”s Ron Carlivati and Crew, You guys are totally awesome, keep it up…

Now I wish We could have Laura(Genie) and steal Greg Vaughan from “Days” and bring Him back as Our Lucky!!!

Hope You win Ron, and keep up the great work…

Glad to see GH finally getting some recognition for the tremendous work they’ve been doing. A very well deserved nomination! Hopefully the Emmys will follow suit when those nominations come out in the spring.

OF COURSE YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT I ALWAYS WILL PICK GH. THEY’VE ALWAYS BEEN THE BEST IN MY EYES, AND ACTUALLY FEEL LIKE THEIR AN EXTENDED FAMILY. THAT’S HOW MUCH I’M ADDITED TOWARDS GH. THANKS FOR SHARING AND KEEP US UP TO DATE. THANKS AGAIN.

I love General Hospital, primarily due to most of the brilliant cast members, but I feel the show is all over the place, too many characters, subplots. Days has more structure, and surprisingly I care about the characters more on Days. My vote is for DAYS!

I guess congrats to both. I don’t watch GH but hear good things about it. I hate to rain on the parade, but as a long-time DOOL fan, I thought I had to comment. DAYS right now is awful! I have no idea how they were nominated for the award!! Their current storylines are a mess and really boring. The vets are underutilized while dull newbies keep coming onto the canvas. Jordan & Rafe’s relationship was super boring; no doubt she’s better with Chad. But the thing is, we’ve been waiting for her secret to come out for over a year, and frankly, we just don’t care anymore. She’s a good actress, but the material is awful and boring. The same goes for Ben–his only storyline is having sex with Abigail. JJ and Paige suck. Really. Paige claims to love JJ and trust him, but always lets her conniving mother and classmates stir up doubt in her. She’s supposed to be a nice, smart girl, but she comes across as judgmental and bland instead. No wonder her and JJ keep taking breaks! He’s had a bad past but he did change. However, I’m really disappointed that he crawled into bed with the much-older Eve, the mother of his girlfriend, former stepmother, and the arch-enemy of his mother. She’s been trying for months to break up him and her daughter’s relationship. Their romp was absolutely disgusting. And as for Eve…a brilliant actress, but her storylines are boring. I think she should’ve mixed it up with Sami before her departure, as well as interacting more with Kristen. But for now, why not have her share scenes with other powerhouse characters like Nicole, Clyde, or Kate? Heck, maybe even her and Rafe would have cool interactions. The Daniel & Jennifer storyline has been really beating the dead horse. Very few people enjoy their relationship. I used to when they first got together, but Jennifer’s been acting like a shrew while Daniel is simply getting too much airtime to truly be enjoyable. I’d like to see him with Eve or Nicole; they would bring out the joy in him, whereas Jennifer only stresses him out. Similarly, Eric & Nicole, who could’ve had a great relationship, have also been destroyed. Eric is constantly being a jerk to her–yes, what Nicole did was wrong, but how did this man ever become a priest? He’s whiny, hypocritical, and judgmental. Nicole forgave him for the false rape accusation, but he can’t forgive her for shredding some papers that he once told Jennifer that he didn’t care if he came upon again? Moreover, how could he be fine with his sister marrying the man who knew Kristen raped him, AND forgive his rapist, yet not give Nicole a free pass? It’s high time that Nicole found some happiness, and I think she should either be hooked up with Rafe (which fans have been requesting since at least 2010), or be paired up again with Daniel or Brady. I think… Read more »

WATCH: ‘The Longest Days of our Lives’ Quarantine Soap Spoof With Jimmy Fallon, Kristen Wiig & Will Ferrell

Wanna know how your daytime dramas might looks if we continue to be quarantined for months, and months, and months to come ? Well, The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon showed viewers last night just how in a hilarious soap opera satire

Fallon, along with guests Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell (you couldn’t have asked for a funnier trio to do this) play characters in a soap opera called, The Longest Days of our Lives.

Courtesy/NBC

Within it watch for: evil twins, doppelgangers, bitchslaps galore, and lots of other soap tropes and plenty of breaking character and all out laughing.

The spoof is now up on You Tube where the loglines say: “Jimmy shares a clip of a soap opera that has adapted to social distancing by having actors (Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig) film their scenes in quarantine using video chat.”

Check it out below and then let us know what you thought of the hilarity that ensued via the comment section.
