The 2nd Annual Indie Soap Awards were held last night in New York and several of our favorite webisoaps took home awards. Gregori J. Martin's steamy, throwback sudser The Bay took home the Fans' Choice Award, as well as Oustanding Directing (Martin). Major props to Martin, as well as all the peeps who have made The Bay so red-hot. Is it really any wonder ATI decided to back the serial?

Crystal Chappell's popular webisoap Venice took home two acting wins. One Life to Live's Hillary B. Smith (Guya)won for Outstanding Supporting Actress, while former Guiding Light star Jordan Clarke (John)won Outstanding Supporting Actor.  

Gregory Turner and Brian Hewson's campy webisoap Empire, took home the award for Best Storyline for the arc that saw villaness Theodora (Guiding Light alum TIna Sloan) taking over her family's magazine.

Now for the biggies. The award for Indie Soap of the Year went to Robert Townsend'sDiary of a Single Mom. The serial's star, Monica Calhoun (Ocean), also took home the win for Oustanding Lead Actress.



Outstanding Lead Actor went to the uber-talented Anthony Anderson, creator and star (Sean) of what I call the "Black Knots Landing"Anacostia. Congrats to all the winners and nominees! For the complete list of winners for the 2nd Annual Indie Soap Awards see below:
