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.

General Hospital Stars Participate in GLSEN’s ‘Day of Silence’, Asking You To Do The Same

General Hospital’s Sofia Mattsson, Cynthia Watros, Kathleen Gati, Brook Kerr and Johnny Wactor appear in a video released this morning, where the actors look to camera and remain silent.

It’s all a part of the ongoing initiative from GLSEN and their “Day of Silence” campaign which is  a national student-led demonstration where LGBTQ students and allies all around the country—and the world—take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQ people in schools.  Every April, students go through the school day without speaking, ending the day with Breaking the Silence rallies and events to share their experiences during the protest and bring attention to ways their schools and communities can become more inclusive.

This year the day is this coming Friday April 23rd.  General Hospital is showing their support of LGBTQ+students and their right to be safe at school and free of verbal harassment, as well.  The video released today supports the organizations action.

 

Now they ask you to support it as well and make your own, ‘Day of Silence’ video and share it on social media.  Watch General Hospital’s below.

Then let us know, if you stand with GH and their support of GLSEN’s Day of Silence via the comment section.

‘Downton Abbey 2’: Big-Screen Sequel Announced & Coming For Christmas

So many of us loved the soap opera that was Downton Abbey when it aired on PBS and ITV for six seasons.  Then, a few years later in 2019, the highly-awaited Downton Abbey movie hit movie theatres near you.

Now comes word from Focus Features that a big-screen sequel is in the works and is slated for release this Christmas in December of 2021.

In a social media announcement, the film company shared: “We’re thrilled to announce that Julian Fellowes and the entire Downton cast are back for #DowntonAbbey2, with Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye and Dominic West joining! See the film in theaters this Christmas.”

While, of course, no plot has been teased or given away, Fellowes will write the screenplay, with Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) set to direct.

“There’s no place like home for the holidays, and we can’t imagine a better gift than getting to reunite with Julian, (producer) Gareth Neame and the entire Downton family in 2021 to bring the Crawleys back home for their fans,” said Focus Features chairman Peter Kujawsk in a statement.

So, excited to see your favorites and some potential new ones in the all-new Downton Abbey Movie later this year? Comment below.

Kimberly McCullough Gives Clues That Have GH Fans Suspecting She Was Back for John Reilly’s Tribute Episode: “Saw Some Old Friends and Reminisced about an Absent Dear One…”

General Hospital fans began taking note of a couple of tweets sent out by beloved longtime cast member, Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio), over the last 24 hours on the actress-director’s Twitter feed.

First, Kimberly shared: “I did something really cool today that involved wearing make-up and heels all day, which I clearly wasn’t prepared for.”

After that she followed it up with, “Here’s a clue – saw some old friends and reminisced about a dear absent one ….”

If you combine that with the fact that Jackie Zeman also tweeted: “Good day shooting @GeneralHospital I was invited back for a special episode today. As Y’all know I rarely post a selfie but it’s been awhile since I’ve had ‘Bobbie’ hair and makeup done. Thank you Karen, Carl, and Ari. Have a wonderful weekend, Everyone,” it would appear that both McCullough and Zeman were back for the upcoming tribute episode to the late John Reilly, who for many years played Sean Donely.

In story, Robin’s parents, Robert (Tristan Rogers) and Anna (Finola Hughes) were very close with Sean, as well.  So it all makes sense that Robin would be part of this as well.

So, if this is proven to be true, are you excited to see Kimberly back on a special episode of GH?  Comment below.
