One Life To Live!! OLTL was so well-done in those last few months, it was really a crime it ended. It was better than prime time.

It’ll probably be OLTL!

Why is Gary Tomlin not on the list of writers for Days?? An even better question is WHY would THIS writing regime get nominated for anything besides a Raspberry award?? GO OLTL!!! I love Ron’s writing!

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS? Really? This year was truly dreadful. I am not sure DAYS OF OUR LIVES is firing on all cylinders quite yet, but it is getting there. I say go with ONE LIFE TO LIVE. they closed brilliantly and the body of work for 43 years was quality.

OLTL!

OLTL should win. The others have been so all-over-the-place that it would be a shame for them to win. OLTL was brilliant during its entire eligibility period.

Tali Smith

Totally agree! OLTL is/was and always will be better than GH. It had good writing, but the cast ansemble made it the best. Miss it like crazy!

OLTL was alway’s #1 in my book. And GH is my second favorite soap !

Y & R – really?!? I see that Maria Arena Bell’s name is not on there…

Jules

Lorraine Broderick is nominated for BOTH DAYS and OLTL! How awesome for her!

DELIGHTED GH is not included!!! And even happier that DAYS was! Despite what people think, they’ve had beautiful scripts when Will was struggling with his identity and coming out, Caroline’s battle with Alzheimer’s and others.

Y&R is the head scratcher, but I’ll take it over GH.

susan M.

I am still heart-broken over OLTL!!!!! I can’t put it into words but OLTL was a VERY SPECIAL SOAP OPERA….I want it back so bad! OLTL IS MY PICK & WILL BE A BIG
WINNER AT THE DAYTIME AWARD SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ERIKA SLEZAK MY #1 favorite of OLTL…. BLONDIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Christy

yeah, come on One Life to Live!! please don’t skip over them this year, of all years! They so much deserved more recognition then they ever got, but it would be bittersweet to get an award for their last year – be it just part of the year (or rather half a month) they were on, the award would be a tribue to all their years of writing.

Blake

Go OLTL! It was the best soap for many years.

Christine

I thought Maria Arena Bell was both head writer and executive producer for Y&R so how come her name isn’t listed above? I guess I am wondering WHAT story of Y&R got nominated.

And the fact that there are only FOUR soaps remaining, it is weird to see B&B as the only one not nominated. They might as well turn the voting to two or include all four. So sad what has happened to the soaps when you used to have your pick on every network in the afternoon.

Marisa

Go One Life to Live!!!! The last few weeks were great and the ending was perfect. I miss One Life to Live. I never expected to miss One Life to Live so much. I am so happy some of the characters continue to live on in Port Charles. GH is rockin. I hope OLTL fans will tune into GH. It is not OLTL but, it is very good with RB/RC.

Congrats ONE LIFE TO LIVE! Hands down, the emmy should go to this show. I just hope they are given some dignity and respect for being on for over 43 years. Last year, they should have one best daytime drama and it didn’t even get nominated for the category.

Good luck, OLTL. I, and the rest of your devoted fans, are rooting for you.

Torrey

Would be nice if someone in a position of authority, would take a look at this article and all the responses and see the overwhelming support for OLTL…. Do you idiots over at ABC see a pattern?! how about this, you cancel that stupid show, THE Chew or Katie….doesn’t really matter which one, and you bring back OLTL. I mean lets look at it, how many talk shows have gotten cancelled? People are tired of talk….we want our daytime dramas.

So, excited for DAYS!!! Rooting for them all the way.
