"The Bold and the Beautiful" is the only half-hour broadcast soap opera in hours-long series, and it was disadvantaged in the overall ratings when the 2018 Daytime Emmy bids were announced (it had 18). But the CBS drama proved powerful at the Creative Arts Awards, which were distributed on Friday evening, April 27, ahead of the main event on Sunday, April 29. Click here for the full list of winners.
"B & B" won seven awards, more than the other three soap operas together. It was honored with the best lighting, the best technical team, the best sound mix, the best music / composition, the best costume design, the best make-up and the best stunt coordination. General Hospital won three times (Best Casting, Best Art Direction, Best Original Song). "The Young and the Restless" has been awarded two prizes (Best Multi-Camera Editing, Best Hairstyling). "Days of Our Lives" was shockingly excluded from the Creative Arts Awards. Is that a good sign for "B & B" in the race for the best drama series? Before Creative Arts, the show was already the front runner to win the grand prize according to our racetrack odds. But maybe this strengthens his position.
Also the "Sesame Street" cleaned up, combined with "B & B" as the most awarded program of the night with 7 own wins from 1
Most digital drama awards were awarded at the Creative Arts Awards and "The Bay" swept, as it is known. In 2017, the show won every single award for digital dramas. This year, he had to settle for five out of the seven categories and won Best Digital Actor Award ( Kristos Andrews ), Best Supporting Digital Actor ( Jade Harlow ), Best Supporting Digital Actor ( Eric Nelsen ), Best Digital Guest Actor ( Patrika Darbo ) and Best Digital Drama Director. Best Digital Drama Writing went to "Zac and Mia", which was also awarded Best Digital Actress ( Anne Winters ). But we have to wait until Sunday to find out who claims the best digital drama series.
