Congratulations to GENERAL HOSPITAL, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, and DAYS OF OUR LIVES, who are nominated in the Daytime Drama category for the 2022 Writers Guild Awards. THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL was not included because the soap chose not to submit itself this year. “Congrats to all, especially my amazing team of writers at DAYS!” enthused headwriter Ron Carlivati on Twitter when the news was announced.
For GH, the team includes headwriters Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor, associate headwriter Anna T. Cascio, and writers Barbara Bloom, Suzanne Flynn, Charlotte Gibson, Lucky Gold, Kate Hall, Elizabeth Korte, Shannon Peace, David Rupel, Lisa Seidman, and Scott Sickles.
For Y&R, headwriter Amanda L. Beall is nominated alongside writers Susan Banks, Jeff Beldner, Sara A. Bibel, Brent Boyd, Susan Dansby, Christopher Dunn, Sara Endsley, Janice Ferri Esser, Marin Gazzaniga, Lynn Martin, Natalie Minardi Slater, and Teresa Zimmermann.
And up for the WGA Award alongside Carlivati are DAYS writers Lorraine Broderick, Joanna Cohen, Carolyn Culliton, Richard Culliton, Jamey Giddens, David Kreizman, Rebecca McCarty, Ryan Quan, Dave Ryan, Katherine D. Schock, and Elizabeth Snyder.
In recent years, GH had quite the winning streak going until 2020 when Y&R took home the trophy. Last year’s winner was DAYS, so check back here at SoapsInDepth.com to see if they can pull it off again when the winners are announced on Sunday, March 20!
