As many had expected in ceremonies held tonight in New York City, One Life to Live won the GLAAD Media Award in the Daytime Drama Series category besting Guiding Light, As the World Turns and All My Children. One Life’s head writer, Ron Carlivati and it’s just axed stars, Brett Claywell (Kyle) and Scott Evans (Oliver) were on hand to accept the award.
GLAAD recognizes each year those who give a fair, accurate and inclusive representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives in the media. How sad that this tremendous portrayal of a same-sex relationship will be off our daytime television screens come April. And, how ironic is tonight’s bittersweet victory?
