OUTSTANDING WRITING TEAM

The Bold and the Beautiful (Head Writer: Bradley Bell )


For just the second time in its history, The Bold and the Beautiful's writers were named Outstanding Writing Team.

"Wow. Wonderful," head writer Bradley Bell said after accepting the award. "I've been writing this show for over 20 years, and I don't think I could write one word without the incredible love story that I'm living of my own with my wife, the beautiful Colleen Bell. You made this all happen."

"I can't believe we get paid to do this sometimes. But Patrick Mulcahey, Mike Minnis, the whole staff is unbelievable," Bell continued. "We work with producers who continually try to reinvent the forum. And an incredible cast. And one member of the cast who's been with us since day one, who's taped her last episode, is here with us. Susan Flannery, you are a legend. It's been an honor to work with you. Thank you, thank you."

Bell had previously stated -- perhaps in jest -- that he'd retire from writing if The Bold and the Beautiful were ever to win the Outstanding Writing Team trophy. That was before the show won in 2010. Now, with its second win, Bell shows no signs of slowing down.

OUTSTANDING DIRECTING TEAM

The Bold and the Beautiful


For just the second time in 27 years, a directing team from The Bold and the Beautiful has won top honors at the the Daytime Emmys.


"Thank you. I want to thank CBS and Brad Bell and the Bell family, our cast and crew on The Bold and the Beautiful, and my wife, Cheryl," director Michael Stich said in accepting the award. "Thank you very much."


For its Emmy reel, B&B selected two visually appealing episodes shot entirely in Italy.


The Bold and the Beautiful did not receive its first Directing nomination until 2000. Since that time, the show has been nominated seven additional times.
