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 makes history with first gay male wedding

The big day finally has come! Days of our Lives made history, and it was no April fools joke. The show is known for its long standing reputation for having storylines that are firsts, or tackling controversial subjects, or going out on a limb. I mean who can forget being possessed by the devil? Well! The show just aired the first gay male wedding making the first such event in daytime television.

The story was handled impeccably, and done tastefully. The same sex relationship has been moving slowing through trials and tribulations for the last several years.

First there was the acknowledging who you are. Then the accepting, and finally the coming out. And now the jubilant wedding of the duo known as WilSon. Will Horton (Guy Wilson) and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) is taking the relationship into orbit, or like the old original Star Trek show said, 'to go where no man has gone before,' at least not on a daytime drama.
