Days of Our Lives

The nominations for the 76th Annual Writers Guild Awards were recently announced, showcasing a range of impressive shows and films across different categories. In the Daytime Drama category, “Days of our Lives” and “General Hospital” emerged as contenders. These two long-running soap operas will be battling it out for the top spot this year.

The Writers Guild Awards recognize outstanding writing in various mediums including film and television. This prestigious event also acknowledges achievements in new media, news (both broadcast and digital), radio/audio productions, and promotional works. The awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, April 14th at both the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles and the Edison Ballroom in New York City.

For “Days of our Lives,” this marks their third consecutive nomination after a straightforward win in 2023 when no other show was nominated. Ron Carlivati leads the writing team for the series. On the other hand, “General Hospital” sees outgoing head writers Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten receiving their final nominations before their departure from the show earlier this year.

Representing “Days of our Lives,” head writer Ron Carlivati is joined by an array of talented writers such as Sonja Alarr, Jazmen Darnell Brown, Joanna Cohen, Carolyn Culliton, Richard Culliton, Cheryl Davis, Kirk Doering, Christopher Dunn, Jamey Giddens, David Kreizman, Henry Newman, Dave Ryan, and Katherine D. Schock. This nomination is particularly noteworthy as it is also the first official recognition for the show since becoming a Peacock exclusive series.

With such a diverse range of talent on display, it promises to be a memorable event for all involved in the world of writing and storytelling.
