All My Children logoGeneral Hospital and the cancelled All My Children receive two Directors Guild nominations each

On Tuesday, January 10, 2012, The Directors Guild of America (DGA) announced the nominations for the television and commercial DGA Awards for this year. We are only highlighting the daytime serials category here.

Of the soap operas that were nominated, the cancelled All My Children and General Hospital (whose continued broadcast fate is still up in the air) received two nominations each.

"The caliber of work being done on television these days is incredible, and our director nominees in each category are an indispensable element to the success of every project -- establishing and enhancing the vision and tone, eliciting outstanding performances and furthering the narrative arc through their creative choices," Taylor Hackford, president of the Directors Guild of America said in a statement today. "That they are able to create excellence regardless of obstacles like tighter schedules and in an environment in which audiences have more entertainment options to choose from -- is a true testament to the importance of directorial skill in television."

And the nominations for Daytime Serials are...

One Life to Live, "Episode #10917" (ABC)

All My Children, "Episode #10712" (ABC)

The Young and the Restless, "Episode #9710" (CBS)

General Hospital, "Intervention" (ABC)

General Hospital, "Episode #12364" (ABC)

The Bold and the Beautiful, "Episode #6057" (CBS)

All My Children, "Episode #10704" (ABC)

Kelsey Grammer will serve as host of the 64th annual DGA Awards, which will be held Jan. 28 at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland.

Soapdom congratulates all the nominees.

Past Blast

Days of our Lives' Eileen Davidson loves playing Kristen

Eileen Davidson of Days of our Lives said that playing the role of Kristen Di Mera is "fun, exuberating, and exhausting", but think about it, what actress would not want to play her?

"I know! The part is so well written that whatever I'm doing I enjoy doing it," Davidson said. "The character of Kristen has I mean... done it all."

Admitting that someday she'd like to see Kristen give birth, but of course she can't have children. "Wild" and "Can't even imagine" is how Davidson described having a baby would be.
