    General Hospital 1st choice…Days 2nd choice but Nicks story and ‘death’ almost makes this a tie for me!


    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Days Abigail will have an affair with E.J., and not Danial who i once predicted…i think! Its just a feeling after the way they were looking at each other…i could be wrong!

    DOOL; 12 writers 4 women

    GH; 12 writers 8 women

    Y&R; 14 writers 11 women

    GH is by far the best writing!!!!!


    4everDAYS replied

    As a fan of DAYS, I am satisfied with the writing, but can’t deny the improved writing of GH.
    I just hope YawneR does not win!


    SUSAN M. replied

    I agree about GH having the best writing !


  3. ronald mikell says:

    what channel will it b on


    jake r replied

    I don’t think any networks broadcast the Writers Guild of America Awards. They all assume the general public only cares about the famous faces of actors and actresses, and the occasional well-known director, not the scribes who actually create the lines!


  4. RLeternal says:

    Hope DOOL wins!


  5. Donnie says:

    I wonder if Tomlin is officially gone from Days…


    shawn replied

    All the writers who elected ficore status during the last writer’s strike are not eligible for WGA awards. Tomlin, Josh Griffith and Paula Cwikly from YR are missing from the rosters this year because they are all ficore status. Jeanne Marie Ford is missing from the nominees too.

    general hospital!!


  7. MARY GHUSEIN says:

    general hospital has the best writing!!


  8. su0000 says:

    For a few years Y&R has not been all that good, not at all..
    Without fail, no matter how bland it is it holds #1 constantly for two decade, or so..
    The odds of that happening are ………………………. ??

    Perhaps CBS has some type of influence..


  9. jimh(leave it to beaver) says:

    my original comment: GH is my first choice, Days my second choice but Nicks story and ‘death’ almost makes it a tie for me! Days Abigail will have an affair with E.J. and not Danial who i once predicted…its just a feeling i have after the way they were looking at each other in a previous episode! I could be wrong!


  10. Derrick says:

    What did each soap submit so I CAN DETERMINE WHO WILL WIN???


  11. janet says:

    GH ,but why is it I have never heard of ANY of the Y&R writers. Not a one.
