Updated Friday April 13: Soaps.com congratulates Bold and the Beautiful for taking home the award for Outstanding Daily Drama at last night’s 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. The show tweeted a photo of Karla Mosley (Maya Forrester) holding the award with the caption, "Congrats to #BradBell @karlamosley & everyone at #BoldandBeautiful on being named “Outstanding Daytime Drama Series” by @glaad at the 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards tonight in Los Angeles. #MayaForrester #LGBTQAcceptance @CBSDaytime @BandB_CBS @CBSDiversity."

Though Days of our Lives didn't win, Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) attended to represent his NBC soap and posted a video on Instagram, on his way to the ceremony, and stated, "Days of Our Lives is nominated for a GLAAD Award! So honored to be attending such an incredible event. Thank you to all the fans who have supported a true love love story and now a love triangle."

Christopher Sean (Paul Narita) was also in attendance and posted, "Thank you so much to @glaad !! And thank you @nbc and @nbcdays for creating Awareness and allowing me to be a part of history. I love the story I’m glad to know we are changing lives and continuing to break down barriers everyday we are given this platform. It’s not just a job it’s a movement and I’m proud to be a part of it. What an #honor to be #nominated."

On January 19 we reported details for this year's 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, which were first established in 1989 with the awards show debuting in 1990. The ceremony will take place on Thursday April 12 at 5:30 PM at The Beverly Hilton at 9876 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, California and on Saturday May 5 at 5:30 PM at the New York Hilton Midtown at 1335 6th Avenue in New York City, New York.

Daytime nominees were announced live this morning from the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah for accurate, fair and inclusive representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and include:

Outstanding Daily Drama:
The Bold and the Beautiful
Days of our Lives
The Young and the Restless

Last year, as with the year prior to that, The Bold and the Beautiful received GLAAD’s sole nomination and therefore took home the award for the storyline surrounding Rick and Maya Forrester’s quest to have a child via surrogate through her sister Nicole Avant.

Some of the aspects that are looked at when picking nominees include ‘Boldness and Originality’, an important ‘Cultural Impact’ and ‘Overall Quality’ of a project. The voters are broke down into three groups consisting of GLAAD staff and board, GLAAD Shareholders Circle members and GLAAD volunteers and allies (previous special honorees, key media industry allies and event production teams).

Soaps.com will announce the winner when they're revealed and we wish the soaps the best of luck!
