All My Children
This is the first time that Allison has "officially" made predictions.
OUTSTANDING DRAMA SERIES
Conventional wisdom tells you that the West Coast glamour soaps - The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives - are underdogs in this category. They are. AMC and DAYS' reels are heavy on adventure more than drama, which should help B&B. However, Emmy voters, who are not regular soap watchers like we are, will give this most important Emmy to All My Children. It's not the show I would pick; B&B was the best show. However, prediction wise, it's going to be All My Children based more on reputation than content.
