OUTSTANDING DRAMA SERIES
Oddly, there were only three nominations for this category. Personally, I think everyone should have had a fair shot at winning, but I'm not in charge. Of the three nominations, All My Children is the show that I watch on a regular basis. That said my pick to win the Emmy is The Bold and the Beautiful. While I found All My Children's tornado scenes visually exciting, the stories themselves fell flat. By contrast, Days of Our Lives' storyline of the minutes leading up to a plane crash was a nail-biter. I didn't need to know everyone's history to appreciate the drama as the seconds ticked down to impact. However, The Bold and the Beautiful had the most powerful story with Storm taking his life in order to save the life of his sister. From beginning to end, this story was tragic and heart wrenching.
