TV Guide’s Michael Logan has published his yearly prediction about which soaps have the best and worst chance of landing a Daytime Emmy Best Drama nomination. From the report:
The Bold and the Beautiful: After months and months of that hopelessly inane Liam-Hope-Steffy drivel, exec producer-head writer Brad Bell finally put the "bold" back in his show by killing off its longtime matriarch Stephanie Forrester with lung cancer — a move that was painful yet weirdly exhilarating and ballsy beyond belief. Bell wisely submitted the two episodes (shows 6448 and 6449, airdates: Nov. 12-13, 2012) where Stephanie's family and friends gather for an Irish-themed party to celebrate her life, little knowing they'll also be saying goodbye. Watching Celtic Woman perform "Danny Boy" at the bash was enough to put us on the floor, but the kicker left us immobile. Out of nowhere, Stephanie announces that she's going off to die at an undisclosed location and that no one — not even her children — will ever see her again. It was shocking, cruel, heartbreaking and so very Stephanie, who was a control freak to the very end. You've never seen anything like it in soaps, and you never will again.
Chance of a nomination: Excellent. READ MORE
