The Bold and the Beautiful Receives GLAAD Media Award Nomination & Win; Only Daily Drama In Category!

The nominations have been revealed for the 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, and the only daytime drama in the Outstanding Daily Drama category this year is CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.  Far and away, the drama illustrated inclusion of the transgender community in it’s storytelling while telling the emotional and riveting tale of the disclosure of Maya Avant (Karla Mosley), previously born as a man named “Myron”.

The two other daytime dramas that have  gay characters on the canvas, General Hospital with Brad, Felix and Lucas, and Days of our Lives with Sonny, Paul, and Will on the canvas in the 2015 calendar year, were not included in the category for their representation of LGBTQ characters on daytime television.  One can only think that the backlash of the graphic murder of core character Will Horton did not help DAYS’ cause.

The GLAAD Media Awards will be handed out on Saturday April 2nd in Los Angeles, and in a ceremony in New York on May 14th, where winners in the categories of motion pictures, television, and journalism will be announced.

So, what do you think about GLAAD’s recognition of The Bold and the Beautiful? And it being the only soap opera that reflects  an important social issue of our time?  Do you hope within the next few years the daytime dramas will consider and implement further inclusion of LGBTQ characters on the landscape?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

General Hospital doesn’t deserve a nomination because their gay characters are an afterthought, popping up here and there in nothing more than a half-hearted attempt to tell a story that leaves much off screen. They have the characters on there to be able to say they have gay characters, but do nothing to tell a real story with those characters or integrate then into the larger canvas. And Days. Oh Days. The torch bearer for a good three years, they may not have always succeeded fully, but at least they tried to tell an interesting, grounded story for their gay… Read more »

I understand changes are part of daytime dramas, but I remain upset over the murder of Will Horton on DAYS, especially after all the energy, talent, and resources spent to make for such and interesting and layered character and engaging stories in recent years. I still wish he and Sonny would have left Salem to come back sometime in the future refreshed for new plots.

I miss strong gay characters on daytime the likes of Bianca (AMC), Luke (ATWT), Oliver & Kyle (OLTL), and Will (DAYS). Is it too much to ask for a little more in our daytime families?

GOOD for B&B, they deserve it….and DOOLS deserves to have LOST…..after winning the past couple of years…..it doesn’t surprise me that the GAY storyline was dropped, since dena higley returned as head writer…..i saw the writing on the wall with her return……i was THRILLED when days decided to go with the storyline, but i am DISAPPOINTED that they have DROPPED it.

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.

Then let us know, would you like to see Bridget return and in-turn bring with her some meaty scenes between mother and daughter, especially given Brooke’s temptation with the bottle again? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
