    I used to think that it was so odd, that we didn’t have Soap Opera Digest Awards, or any other type of awards for soaps actors, other than the Daytime Emmys, like movies/television stars, get to have the primetime Emmys, golden globe, SAG Award, Critics Choice, Oscars, and even public/fans choice like the People’s Choice Awards, or Teen Choice Awards (whom I still believe should have categories like Favourite Soap Actor/Actress) but I digress, etc.. Even, British Soaps, have the British Soap Awards.

    While I think it is good that we have our own Soap Golderby Awards, we don’t actually have a ceremony, or any form of statuette for those actors, right?  I just think soap actors worked the hardest in the industry, and should not only have the Daytime Emmys honor their works.

    So while I was doing some research, and I had no idea, but France has this annual award ceremony, called “Soap Awards France” to honor the different french soap operas, telenovelas and the Americans ones who play on French TV channels. It started in 2016, so its only been around for 4 years. At first, I thought it was just a online/wish list just for fun, but there are actual ceremonies, where nominated actors show up and have speeches and there is a panel of the jury that encompasses of soap experts and journalists, and there are in fact trophy/statuettes. A couple of their ceremonies actually aired online on sites such as DailyMotion. Check their website out: http://soapawards.fr/index.php

    Following this thread, I will make a list of nominees and winners of the past four years. You will notice that there are only The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless nominees since there are the only two soaps out of the four who are eligible. Precisely, they are the only ones who air on the French channels, I believe.  Hence, I am just going to include the categories where these two soaps had nominees/winners. Enjoy, and we should discuss what you guys think! I do wonder, when the nominees for the 2020 Soap Awards, will come out!

    I have watched Plus Belle la Vie and Cut, which is set in Reunion, a French Island off the coast of Madagascar. I think the former is set in Montpellier? Haven’t seen Les Mysteres de l’Amour though. I no longer get that channel I watched them on due to a change in my cable lineup ):

    So, what do you guys think about this award? I think its amazing that soaps have something other than the Daytime Emmys to celebrate them. I feel like the reason why they stopped nominating the American soaps in the other categories, is maybe the lack of support? If these US soaps would have made the trip to France and attend these award ceremony, I felt like this Soap Award could have gone mainstream, and done possibly as well as the BAFTA and British Soaps Awards have been televised, or other awards like that?

    It sounds like they are also big Sharon Case and Rena Sofer fans, hence them receiving multiple wins and nominations since its emergence four years ago.  Who do y’all think they are going to nominate this year?

    One of teh things I noticed is that Y&R and B&B’s episodes are from quite a few years ago; Diane Jenkin’s murder was way back maybe 7 years ago, so if it aired in 2016 in France it must have been a 3 year gap. I happen to love Sharon Case and Rena Sofer!

    I also wish I could see Les Mysteres de l’Amour!

    I remember certain characters and storylines mentioned within the nominations for Cut! and Plus Belle la Vie. I loved the camera work for Cut!, the way they would show the island of Reunion before the scenes played out – it is the most racially balanced soap I have ever seen too.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. My favorite French show is a police/law drama called Spiral in English, which has a soapiness to it’s plots!
