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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
