The Soap Opera Digest Awards

TV's Most Beautiful Women grace the cover of the Digest Awards issue


More than 400 people attended the black-tie Soap Opera Digest Awards at the Beverly Hills Hilton in January 1990. Terry Lester (Mason, SANTA BARBARA) and Dixie Carter hosted the event at which SB bested DAYS OF OUR LIVES, taking home the award for Outstanding Daytime Soap. SB had a triumphant night, scoring eight awards in all.

DAYS recouped when Frances Reid and Macdonald Carey (Alice and Tom) received the Editor's Award for their outstanding contribution to the medium.
