A good choice IMO:
All My Children: The show wisely chose its final two hours, a heartfelt homage to new life and fresh beginnings (Stuart is back from the dead! Angie can see! Adam proposes to Brooke!) topped by a champagne toast to Pine Valley by Tad that was sweet, unbearably sad, utterly perfect. Not everything tied up nicely. Erica postponed her marriage to Jack to pursue her Hollywood dreams and he dumped her, Rhett Butler-style. And JR went on a full-boil alcoholic rampage ("My son's not getting raised by lesbians!") and fired a shot in the final moment of the show as the screen went to black. Did he kill his ex-wife? Her lover? His father? Himself? We were supposed to learn who lived and died when AMC moved to the internet but, due to the collapse of that dream, we'll never know the outcome. Both wildly frustrating and deeply satisfying, this was a finale for the record books.
Chance of a nomination: Good but, given the stiff competition this year, not a sure thing.
