Ron Carlivati did not write that anniversary episode, or the day before or after, all KUDOS go to Our very Own Elizabeth Korte…

p.s. Ron C. is the reason Genie was written off back to Paris in one episode, as he stated that he could NOT write anything for Laura without Luke… I am loving the new Writing Team, never a dull moment + Genie is back on long term contract for atleast 3 more years, possibly more once the 3 year deal, bringing her back home!!! I think WE have the BEST Cast, Crew, Frank Valentini, and NOW a great Writing team!!! By the way, when Ron C submitted reels for Best Writing, his ego didn’t allow for that… He didn’t even… Read more »

I for one am turning handsprings knowing that “Y & R” will NEVER receive a WGA nomination with Chuck Pratt as the Head Writer/Plagiarizer/Hack!!

GH ratings fall so far that RC is fired and GH gets a writing nomination. This is why awards that are decided on one or two episodes for a genre that does 250 a year are ridiculous and meaningless. Just like it was meaningless when GH won last year.

Why only 2 (out of the 4) soaps get nominated?
Why doesn’t WGA Awards nominate all 4 soaps?!

B&B! I love the Maya SL! It’s great to see a soap that is timely and relevant. We don’t live in 1950 — and soaps can’t be stuck their either and survive. All soaps have to evolve and reflect current times or be left behind and die. Younger viewers love SLs that relfect the times — and no current daytime soap can survive without younger viewers because older viewers do not count in the ratings/demos. I am a B&B fan, but congrats to both B&B and GH for these noms!

Just another testament which proves that those who vote on such matters do not watch the shows. GH has been horridly written for the last two years. I heard B&B has been pretty horrid too.
These awards are meaningless.

Wait, Y&R’s Chuck Pratt didn’t get a nomination?? All is right with the world.

If I knew which episode or episodes they are using I might be better able to decide which one I would be rooting for. My guess that BW episode with Luke finding out he killed his mother is the one GH is using, if so, I think they have it hands down, but then again, awards are given for so many reasons, it is hard predict—-

The GH team got nominated not only RC and there was no mistake in letting him go, sorry if your a fan of his work but he was horrible.

I think u need some knew writers. It is upsetting to think we are so stupid and the show is repeating itself. I cannot believe Wyatt is still on the show.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

Courtesy/ABC

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.

General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.
