Last night in ceremonies held in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton,  Days of our Lives,  The Fosters, Bridegroom and Behind the Candelabra were among the award recipients at the 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards, with more awards to be handed out in another ceremony in New York City on May 3rd.

The Fosters, featuring former OLTL and Sunset Beach star Sherri Saum, and has  B&B’s Joanna Johnson (Karen) as one of the shows EP’s,  took home the prize for Outstanding Drama Series for the ABC Family series.  On hand to accept the honor were Saum, co-star Terri Polo, and co-creators Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg,

Outstanding Documentary was a tie, but one of the winners was the sensational Bridegroom, and on hand were Shane Bitney Crone (who’s story is the centerpiece of the film) and the film’s executive producer, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason.  The other documentary winner was Call Me Kuchu.

Days of our Lives had already won the Outstanding Daily Drama category, because there were no other nominees in the category for the depiction of Sonny and Will’s love story.   On hand at the event representing DAYS were Guy Wilson (Will) and Kate Mansi (Abigail).  Guy was tweeting many pics live from the event.

Freddie Smith (Sonny), who was one half of the honored storyline was not in attendance. Chandler Massey (Ex-Will), who was a major part of the success of the couple of Will and Sonny last year was not present, for those who may have been inquiring.

Behind the Candelabra, the television movie about the life of Liberace starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon took home the award for Outstanding TV Movie or Mini-Series!

And Rita Moreno presented Jennifer Lopez with the Vanguard Award for the work in the fight for equality for the LGBT community, which includes her work as executive producer on ABC Family’s The Fosters.

Freddie was in St Louis Michael promoting Nerium an anti aging cream that is in a lawsuit right now brought by Ray Liotta so perhaps sending a message to you and all the soap media just how much he hasn’t enjoyed the past few weeks or months

Why do you keep trying to hide the fact that Freddie has lost interest in his own story on DAY’S because it has been ruined since Chandler Massey was fired and Guy Wilson took over. We all know Freddie Smith boycotted GLAADS and to be honest with you I’m proud of him for doing it, why would he want to be in the company of a man that has trash talked certain people on social media and gotten away with it. Why would Chandler attend he’s not stupid either he would only attend if Freddie was and as that didn’t happen he’s not going to be there is he. Also are you trying to tell us that in the two years Freddie and Chandler had been WILSON they didn’t need to attend the GLAADS to pick up the award they could have stayed at home, are you kidding me, the gay community love Freddie and Chandler as WILSON and they both knew that, that’s why they accepted the award and the GLAADS gave it to them, but this time they were slapped in the face when Guy Wilson and Kate Manis turned up to accept the award on Freddie and Chandler’s behalf because Guy Wilson doesn’t even understand the roll he is playing and Kate Mansi has nothing to do with the gay storyline except that she introduced Sonny and Will (Freddie and Chandler) and she is their cousin. So why was she even there?

I find it odd that Days hasn’t had much coverage from the Glaad Awards, Freddie not being there is also odd. I would’ve thought that Glaad was more important then doing a Nerium event. I don’t know what’s going on with Freddie but something doesn’t sit right with all of this. I don’t even know why Guy Wilson was there he wasn’t part of Wilson last year. Something isn’t right in my opinion.

Congrats to all the winners.That been said i’m wondering why Freddie Smith wasn’t in attendance.Now maybe he had a valid reason for not being there.As for Chandler i think we all know why he wasn’t there.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.
