I think it’s interesting (and if it’s been mentioned before, I apologize) but All My Children is the only soap in history to be nominated for Best Drama in its final calendar year season (2011). GL and PC were nommed for Best Show the year prior to their final season (2003, 2008 respectively), but not the last year (04 and 09).
Which soaps do you think should have been nominated for their final seasons that weren’t? Do you think OLTL can pull off a nom in 2013 for the 10 days they aired in 2012?
I think both ATWT & GL should’ve been nodded for their final years based on their tape submission (GL should’ve been for both caledar year and tape).
OLTL could, but given their history, they probably won’t. I think the nominations for drama series next year would have to be 3, b/c the math wouldn’t make sense w/only 5 shows up for consideration.
• Ryan’s Hope (ABC), which signed off Jan. 13, 1989 and was last eligible for the 1988-1989 season.
• As the World Turns (CBS), which signed off Sept. 17, 2010 and was last eligible for the 2010-2011 season.
• Add One Life to Live (ABC), which signed off Jan. 13, 2012 and is last eligible (if I’m correct) for the 2012-2013 season.
