Two daytime favorites will be competing in this year's Writers Guild of America Awards race.

After a five-month strike in 2023 that nearly shut down Hollywood productions, the Writer's Guild of America has announced its nominees for its 2024 awards show, and two soap writing teams stand a chance of taking home trophies.

The writing team from Days of our Lives and the writing team from General Hospital received nominations, with the award ceremony scheduled for April 14, more than a month after they usually take place.

The nominated Days of our Lives writers are head Writer Ron Carlivati, creative consultant Ryan Quan, and writers Sonja Alar, 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.

The team from GH includes head writers Dan O'Connor and Chris Van Etten, along with writers Ashley Cook, Emily Culliton, Suzanne Flynn, Charlotte Gibson, Lucky Gold, Kate Hall, Elizabeth Korte, Shannon Peace, Stacey Pulwer, Dave Rupel, Lisa Seidman, and Scott Sickles.

The DAYS writing team took home the award in 2023. The team was also the only nominee in the category. Soap opera icon Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, All My Children) was on hand to present the award. At the time, Ron Carlivati was honored to accept an award from a daytime legend, stating, "I just want to say, this is a full circle moment to receive the award from the iconic Susan Lucci. I grew up watching her as Erica Kane, and I can even name all of her husbands."
