I'm so glad to see that they named One Life to Live Best Soap. I haven't understood why As the World Turns has been named best soap by so many different mainstream sites. It's nice to know we're not entirely off our rockers here at Daytime Confidential.
I do have a question for As the World Turns fans. Do you agree with John Hensley being named Best Actor by TV Guide and several other sites? I like Hensley a lot and I think he is a very good actor but the reason I ask is because I thought that Holden's storylines this year were totally out of character for Holden (based on the five years I watched ATWT so I may be wrong) and I realize that my distaste for his storylines may be having an adverse affect on how I view his performance as an actor. So I'd love some other fan perspective on things.
