All My Children logoThis morning, the WGA (Writers Guild of America) announced the nominations for the 2012 Writers Guild Award.

Soapdom congratulates all the nominees.  

In the Daytime Drama category, writing teams from the following soaps were nominated...

All My Children
Written by:
Jeff Beldner, Lorraine Broderick, Joanna Cohen, Lisa K. Connor, Chris Dunn, Lucky Gold, Kate Hall, Chip Hayes, David Kreizman, Dave Ryan, Donna Swajeski, Rebecca Taylor, Addie Walsh; ABC

General Hospital
Written by:
Meg Bennett, Nathan Fissell, David Goldschmid, Robert Guza, Jr., Karen Harris, Elizabeth Korte, Mary Sue Price, Michele Val Jean, Susan Wald, Tracey Thomson; ABC

The Young and the Restless
Written by:

Missing from the nominations this year are The Bold and the Beautiful and One Life to Live.  But to fans of General Hospital and The Young and the Restless who are more than disappointed in the way their shows have been portrayed in the writing of late, take note.  Writing peers from The Writers Guild seem to think the writing of those soaps is pretty darn noteworthy.  Noteworthy enough to nominate them for the Writers Guild Award.

Please share your thoughts below.
