While I’d like to congratulate all who received a nom, I’m a bit surprised by the glaring omissions. I really enjoy Thurston and glad to see them recognized, but to see the likes of The Bay not included in best series leaves me scratching my head and wondering about the method behind the nominations. It’s great to have so many entries, but to be taken seriously and considered a reputable recognition ceremony, they’ll need to start concentrating more on the overall quality of the shows instead of coming off like a popularity contest.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,
