Nominations for the 2022 Writers Guild Awards were announced today and this year the writing teams of ‘Days of our Lives’, ‘General Hospital’ and ‘The Young and the Restless’ will compete for the coveted prize in the Daytime Drama category. “The Bold and the Beautiful” has yet to show up for the awards as it has opted out for several years. The writing team of “Days of our Lives” won the award in 2021.

Representing “Days of our Lives” this year, the editor Ron Carlivati and its editorial team of writers Lorraine Broderick, Joanna Cohen, Caroline Culliton, Richard Culliton, Jamey Giddens, David Kreizman, Rebecca McCarty, Ryan Quan, David Ryan, Katherine D. Schock and Elizabeth Snyder. Giddens is nominated for the first time.

“General Hospital” is represented by editors Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and their editorial team consisting of an associate editor Anna-Therese Cascio, writers Barbara Bloom, Suzanne Flynn, Charlotte Gibson, Lucky Gold, Kate Hall, Elisabeth Korte, Shannon Peace, David Rupel, Lisa Seidman and Scott sickles. Peace is nominated for the first time.

“The Young and the Restless” is represented by co-writer Amanda L. Beall and the show’s editorial team of writers Susan Banks, Jeff Beldner, Sara A. Bibel, Brent Boyd, Susan Dansby, Christopher Dunn, Sara Endley, Janice Ferri Esser, Marin Gazzaniga, Lynn martin, Natalie Minardi Slater and Therese Zimmermann.

Due to its fi-core status during the infamous 2007/2008 writers’ strike, Josh Griffith, the head writer and co-executive producer of “The Young and the Restless,” is ineligible (see story) for a WGA nomination.

The Writers Guild Awards recognize outstanding writing in the film, television, new media, news (broadcast and digital), radio/audio and promotional categories. The 2022 Writers Guild Awards (74th Annual) will take place on Sunday, March 20.

No additional information on where or if it will be held virtually as it did in 2021 has been announced. For the latest information on the 2022 Writers Guild Awards, visit www.wga.org or www.wgaeast.org.
