The Soap Opera Digest Awards

Best Actor and Actress Eric Braeden and Melody Thomas Scott (Victor and Nikki, Y&R)


For the 17th Annual Soap Opera Digest Awards, balloting was conducted entirely online. A record-breaking number of readers — more than 100,000 — logged on to double-click their votes. While the ceremony wasn't televised, the winners' acceptance speeches were printed in Digest.

This year's winners were unpredictable. Top-rated YOUNG AND RESTLESS triumphed with four trophies, as did ninth-ranked PASSIONS, which took home two.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES reclaimed the title of Favorite Show and netted seven additional awards, including Favorite Storyline (The Baby Switch) and Favorite Couple (Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso as Bo and Hope)...
