One Life to Live wins GLAAD Media Award for Kish storyline!

As many had expected in ceremonies held tonight in New York City, One Life to Live won the GLAAD Media Award in the Daytime Drama Series category besting Guiding Light, As the World Turns and All My Children.  One Life’s head writer, Ron Carlivati and it’s just axed stars, Brett Claywell (Kyle) and Scott Evans (Oliver) were on hand to accept the award.

GLAAD recognizes each year those who give a fair, accurate and inclusive representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives in the media. How sad that this tremendous portrayal of a same-sex relationship will be off our daytime television screens come April.  And, how ironic is tonight’s bittersweet victory?

What a joke! glaad has once again proven itself to be all about publicity instead of honoring the right people! OLTL just axed Kish and glaad gives the win to OLTL? If anyone should have won, it should have been GL thanks to Chappell’s acting and bec Chappell created Venice to reunite with Leccia and to give their Otalia fans what they want. glaad once again has proven what they’re about, not honoring the best in Daytime, but garnering publicity.

OLTL deserved to win but I would have thought someone would have mentioned that they were fired and honored the actors. But I guess a press release was all that was needed… I’m quite disappointed and Brett’s tweet even mentions his confusion.

I think it is wonderful for Brett and Scott to have won this award – they deserved it. ABC, Frank Valentini and Brian Frons do not after they way they treated Brett and Scott during their firing. When Kish is gone from Llandview, so is this 30 year “mainstream” female fan.

This is typical. ABC and GLAAD has had this kind of relationship since when Eden Riegel first started portraying Bianca on All My Children. Time and again, GLAAD ends up representing the entertainment industry to the community instead of the community to the entertainment industry. Anyone else remember GLAAD helping to explain away ABC’s sudden firing of Brooke Smith after a same sex relationship was started between two female characters? ABC knows how to play the game to get the awards and recognition because they know GLAAD is too scared to ruin their relationships with the networks to do anything… Read more »

That award belongs to Brett and Scott and i’m sure Ron Carlivati knows his story never would have won if it had not been for the brilliant acting of these 2 talented young men who brought Kyle and Oliver to life in such a real and believable way……the chemistry between them was so amazing it made it impossible not to fall in love with them and the love between their characters came across so strongly that their gender was irrelevant……I adore them and loved their beautiful romantic love story since it started and they will forever be my favourite couple….i… Read more »

I’m sorry but the story of Otalia was more compelling. Breese was good in the beginning till ABC writer Pratt assainated Reese’s character and also lied to Eden about giving her a s/l worth love story I think Gladd should step in before the awards shows and try to help the writers and sponsers of TV shows understand and portray the LGBT community in a better light but they don’t The fact is they gave the award to them because of the firing and the media surrounding it. GLADD is a very disappointing award show for the fact is they… Read more »

I disagree completely. I have been watching GL over 30 years and OLTL since about 20 years approx. I thought the lesbian story with Olivia was one of the worst and most unbelievable storylines I had ever watched. I would fastforward when they came on because I couldn’t bear to watch. After all the men Olivia has been with, it just seemed too ridiculous. There was absolutely NO love between those two. Fish and Kyle are one of the most beautiful couples I have ever seen on a soap (gay or otherwise) . Scott Evans and Brett Claywell are excellent… Read more »

I hope every time Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati look at that GLAAD award that THEY won, I hope they both choke on it! The two people who WON this award (Scott Evans and Brett Claywell) are no longer part of the show. Ron did some great writing (at least in the beginning …….. as of late, it SUCKS)! But, I’m sure that is intentional. I highly doubt any other two actors could have brought this storyline to life and done the job that Scott and Brett did with it. They were mezmerizing and “right on” in every single scene… Read more »

I agree that Scott and Brett should get the award—not OLTL. The writing may have been good but it is Brett and Scott that made us fall in love with their characters. I would LOVE to see them get nominated and win an Emmy so they would get the last laugh.
