Do they specify which stories are award caliber? Other than a few of the Adam/Victor confrontations, I’m hard pressed to find a great writing achievement this past year. The Theo fiasco was/is laughable, Chelsea’s return was overused, Mia & Arturo are already history, and the promising returns of Fen, Kevin, and Chloe seem back-burnered. Am I missing something?

It’s so funny you say that, Damien, because in the past few months, I’ve been nodding off regularly! Usually when Tessa, Theo, this new, dull-as-dishwater Chance, or the latest installment of the Chelsea Show featuring Conner the Unhinged is on. Where are Jill, Nina, the Baldwin/Fisher clan including Gloria and hottie Fenmore, Paul…anything but the Lola/Kyle/Theo triangle. So I don’t know what great writing they’re referring to here either.

Writing for Kyle Abbott as he poured out his heart to Lola, her brother. His father, his aunts was moving and emotionally authentic. It was moving fans to believe and trust his integrity. Time will tell if this offering will be respectfully treated or casually trashed.

Moonbeam2, yes, Michael Mealor is a wonderful actor and a perfect Kyle. To me, Jack has been very insensitive to his son on behalf of this interloper with weird hair and no substance. As you can see, I’m not a Theo fan!

I agree with you Soaphound. I am so sick of listening to Chelsea whining to anyone who will listen. And you know it is just a matter of time and Lola and Theo (the man who gives me the creeps and makes my skin crawl) start rolling around in bed together. God I hope not. It would be nice to see Esther fussing over a pregnant Chole. They should the Fenmores in one episode for 5 minutes last week at Society. Ten was telling his parents he was moving to Nashville and renting a house with sober friends. So much… Read more »

I’m with you on “BillyBoy”, soapqueenforever. At first, I didn’t know if he was channeling Humphrey Bogart in THE CAINE MUTINY (with chewing gum substituting for marbles) or Sally Field in SYBIL. Why put him and Vic back together for such a short duration? At least Nikki and Victor make it work for a year or two!

It’s an award for best writing, not worst.

There is absolutely no comparison in writing. Y and R wins by doing what it always has. It offers a layered, nuanced, subtle writing style. It’s not all plot velocity all the time. There are no back from the dead serums. No memories on flash drives. People forget……Y and R was often mind-numbingly boring when Bill Bell wrote it. Nothing would happen for months! Stories would start, and were abruptly dropped. I like watching a show that isn’t all guns and violence and explosions and evil psychos running around town. Y and R is far from perfect, but even on… Read more »
