Out today from TV Guide Magazine, Michael Logan reveals to his readers the seven episodes that were submitted for contention for this years Daytime Emmy for The Outstanding Drama Series, and his thoughts on the shows picks. Soaps are allowed to submit one episode from the eligibility period.
Shockingly, Guiding Light picked their farewell episode, over his pick, and those of many soap pundits, The Runaway Bride Episode where Natalia dumped Frank at the altar and went searching for Olivia. One Life went with their Grey Gardens spoof, and AMC decided on their, “Who Shot Stuart?” episode. From the looks of it, those didn’t strike a chord, either.On the flip side, Logan cites that ATWT for it’s Valentine’s Day fairy tale spoof which already won them a DGA Award, could bring the show a final nomination at the end of it’s run.
However, it was DAYS episode revolving around Grace’s death, GH’s amazing carnival, and B&B’s beautiful sequences where Ann (Betty White) dies, that look to be strong contenders, along with Y&R”s Colleen’s heart transplant to Victor episode.
So who do you think will end up as the final nominees when they are announced on Wednesday, May 12th?
