      Were you watching DAYS last year during the eligibility period for the award? It was compelling, deep, and character-driven. I’m watching both DAYS and GH right now and loving them!

  • DAYS fan since 2000

    Probably the Will and Sonny storyline? There were so many fabolous scenes, especially when Sonny delivered Arianna and Will got shot and was in the hospital!

      I’ve heard that when the DAYS writers were walking up to the podium, a clip of Marlena/Kristen’s confrontation was playing. Whether that was the script that was submitted remains to be seen.

      • Jim Fung

        I think there are three scripts submitted for WGA, so probably both Kristen/Marlena stuff and Will/Sonny stuff were part of the submissions.

    Congrats to DOOL! It’s a shame the writer at ABC is so bitter, like so many of their fans.
