EW's Soap opera awards

EW’s Soap opera awards — We present awards for unrecognized soap achievements

Posted on

As the Daytime Emmys get handed out on May 25, I’d like to present my own awards for unrecognized soap achievements. The Get-a-Coach Award goes to the usually top-notch Nicolas Coster (As the World Turns‘ Eduardo) for his woeful Italian accent-what a turnoff! The Prince-Is-Right Award, to Vanessa Marcil (General Hospital‘s Brenda), featured in the rocker’s video ”The Most Beautiful Girl in the World.” The If-You-Believe-This-I’ve-Got-a-Bridge-to-Sell Award, to Y&R head writer Kay Alden, who told Soap Digest that her daughter, Conci, 12, got the part of Heather solely on merit. The Come-Back-All-Is-Forgiven Award, to Hunter Tylo (The Bold & The Beautiful‘s Taylor), who quit to do a miniseries — B&B is missing her heat.
