Nominees for "The 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards" were announced today and CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" is the sole nominee in the category of Outstanding Daily Drama. Historically, when there is only one nominee in the category, the series becomes the de facto winner.
This morning GLAAD announced the nominees for the 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards, which honors media that was published, released or broadcast between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013. NBC's "Days of our Lives" was once again nominated for Outstanding Daily Drama. Incidentally, as the series was the only nominee, a GLAAD representative confirms that the series is the de facto award recipient. Last year, "DAYS" battled and won against CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful."
"The Bold and the Beautiful" was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award this year for its first same sex romance storyline "My Two Moms" featuring the characters of Karen and Danielle Spencer (Joanna Johnson and Crystal Chappell) and their welcoming daughter Caroline (Linsey Godfrey). Veteran "B&B" script writers (and LGBT community members) Tracey Ann Kelly and Patrick Mulcahey, along with Head Writer/Executive Producer Bradley P. Bell chatted with On-Air On-Soaps' Michael Fairman in an exclusive interview for FrontiersLA.com, where they opened up about the show finally tackling an LGBT-inspired story.
