Will ‘General Hospital’ extend Daytime Emmys record with 12th Drama Series win?

Last year, “General Hospital” won Best Drama Series for the 11th time, more than any other series in the history of the Daytime Emmys.

 “The Young and the Restless” has won the award seven times, making it the second most honored drama at the Daytime Emmys. With the backing of 10% of users, this CBS hit has odds of 14 to 5.

Last year, voters snubbed “The Bold and the Beautiful” despite it having won Best Drama three years in a row from 2009 to 2011. However, it is poised to make a comeback and with two editors and predicting it to prevail, this CBS show has odds of 10 to 3.

Last year, “Days of Our Lives,” which won this award just once, back in 1978, surprised with a bid. This year, only 5% of users expect it to win, giving this lone NBC soap odds of 20 to 1. 

After being axed by ABC, “One Life to Live” only aired nine episodes in 2012. It won this top prize back in 2002 and is the longshot to pick up a bookend with odds of 100 to 1.
