Teddi Giggy has provided the One Life to Live Friday recaps for soapcentral.com for over a year and is also a contributing news correspondent for the General Hospital and OLTL sections of the site. A soap fan since the early 70s, she has watched every soap that is currently on the air at one time or another throughout the years and is currently watching The Bold and the Beautiful, The Young and the Restless, and, obviously, One Life to Live. Teddi is excited about her first time around as an Emmy predictor, and she hopes that she is successful in her selections.
The Bold and the Beautiful
This is Teddi's first time making Emmy predictions.
OUTSTANDING DRAMA SERIES
For Outstanding Drama, AMC offered the episode of David Hayward's return, and the explanation for his "demise," while GH selected the episode with Franco's art opening at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Y&R chose an episode that put Adam and Sharon back together in New Orleans, and for that reason alone, I refuse to pick Y&R for Outstanding Drama this time around.
Who will win
: The Bold and the Beautiful
Actually, when I first watched the two Skid Row episodes of B&B in October, I truly believed that they were guaranteeing B&B its third Daytime Emmy award in a row for Outstanding Drama. The episodes were filmed on location and were based on the reality of the homeless living on the streets in a large city. The episodes were highlighted by the excellent acting of Susan Flannery, Kristolyn Lloyd, and Katherine Kelly Lang, along with extras from the actual Skid Row community. These episodes really focused on the plight of the homeless and reminded Stephanie and the B&B viewers that you can always find someone with troubles worse than your own.
