Seriously, ATWT! That is mind-blowing. The WGA probably felt the show deserved the equivalent of a pity F***. If this was an acting award, I wouldn't bash it because the cast gave it their all. I admit to being a lapsed ATWT viewer. But ATWT was a sad imitation of its former self. I cut my teeth on this show during the '80s and '90s. I also loved most of the '00s. A sad day...
