'Bold and Beautiful' ahead to win Best Drama at Daytime Emmys

Three-time champ "The Bold and the Beautiful" was snubbed in the Drama Series race at last year's Daytime Emmys. 

However, four of our experts -- Michael Fairman (Michael Fairman Soaps), Roger Newcomb (We Love Soaps) and Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil and Paul Sheehan -- are predicting it to prevail this year with its seventh bid. 

One of our experts -- Dan Kroll (Soap Central) -- is backing reigning champ "General Hospital." It has already racked up a record 11 wins as Best Drama Series -- 1981, 1984, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2011 -- from 23 nominations. 

Another expert -- Nelson Branco (Soap Opera Uncensored) -- forecasts victory for "One Life to Live" -- axed by ABC last year but back online now -- to win a bookend to its 2002 prize. It has only been nominated five times in 40 years. 

None of our experts expect "The Young and the Restless" -- which has seven wins (1975, 1983, 1985, 1986, 1993, 2004, 2007) from a record 32 nominations -- to take the top award.

Nor do they foresee a win for NBC's lone daytime drama -- "Days of Our Lives." That sudser, which began in 1965, has only one win (1978) from 16 nominations. It was a suprise nominee last year. Prior to that it last contended in 2009 and before that it had been a decade since this show was nominated. Compare that to a run of six straight bids starting with the first Daytime Emmys in 1974.
