With the ABC version of “One Life to Live” now a thing of the past, and with it airing only 9 episodes during the 2012 eligibility year, one would think that the show would not have received any Daytime Emmy Award love. While the show only received 3 nominations for its ABC incarnation, 3 noms is just great!

The categories (and nominees) the show received nominations for are:

Outstanding Drama Series

  • Frank Valentini, Executive Producer
  • Suzanne Flynn, Senior Producer
  • Jackie Van Belle, Coordinating Producer
  • John Tumino and Leah Weber, Producers

Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team

  • Ron Carlivati, Head Writer
  • Lorraine Broderick, Breakdown Writer
