    Congratulations to The Bold & the Beautiful on its nomination for Outstanding Daily Drama at the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). B&B was the only nominee, so we can congratulate the show again when it wins in April. http://www.soapoperadigest.com/content/bb-snags-glaad-award-nomination/

    Now, while I am glad for B&B to get the recognition, I am even more stumped by this than I am the WGA’s nominating only GH for their daytime award. Are the organizations just picking a name out of a hat? As much as I have been a fan of B&B this year, and think it was clearly the best soap overall, I don’t see how GLAAD recognizes only this show and ignores GH and DAYS. B&B’s transgender character has been on the backburner all year, despite our suggestions that she get a story. Is there some other LGBTQA element on the show that I’m forgetting? Maybe this is because of Chaz Bono’s guest arc? It’s a shame that GH and DAYS were ignored despite writing actual storylines for their LGBTQA characters.

    I would argue that none of the shows deserve to win for 2016. GLBT characters were relegated to almost zero screen time and while of course I enjoyed the few crumbs, scenes between Lucas and Brad on GH and Paul and Sonny on Days in particular, they have had no stories. ): Why can’t they write a really great love story for Brad and Lucas? There is SO much more story they could tell! and we would all enjoy it!

    Aside from the very marginalized Lucas and Brad, GH also had the story with Kristina struggling with her attraction to her female professor (her being a woman was just one aspect of the problem, of course). And Sonny appeared on DAYS a decent amount once he returned and had a supporting role in a couple of stories. The triangle with Paul and Derrick didn’t get a lot of airtime, but I would say at least both Paul and Sonny were represented well throughout the year, especially by DAYS standards, where anyone is lucky to be on more than twice in a week. I do agree though that all four shows could have done a better job of representing LGBTQA characters and stories throughout the year.
