  2. Funny how Drake Hogestyn keeps winning even though he hasn't been on air for weeks and Galen Gering's Rafe has been in a coma for over a month.
    While I love DAYS, am I the only one who actually votes for the best performance of the week?

  3. Roger Howarth, with his double duty on OLTL and GH, has got to be the top soap actor! JMHO

  4. I think it's a mixture of fans voting for their favorite actors and couples week after week and others voting for whatever actor they thought gave a great performance (Heather Tom the week before, Kirsten Storms last week, for example).

  5. @ Doug .. I could have written your comment .. lol!

    And to answer your question, yes, I do. My votes typically change week-to-week. I even vote for same-sex duos in the couples division who aren't romantically involved, simply because their scenes may have been the best of the week. (Example: Kevin & ALex on Y&R - who are like the show's very own "Odd Couple" .. lol!)

  6. Fox, you're not the only one. I see that every week. Last week GH's Georgie and Maxie got a lot of votes, for example.

  7. Roger - Good to know! And certainly reflective of "Dynamic Duos" for the present and future!
