The first phase of the Dankies balloting took place throughout December and part of January. In this phase all B&B Online users were asked to offer their choices for the best of the best of The Bold and the Beautiful over the past year. These users were allowed to nominate any performer or storyline that they felt fit the various categories. When balloting closed, Soap Opera Central tabulated all of the nominations.
