Maura West (ATWT). I think Maura had the best storyline out of the bunch.
She has the ability to make Carly a villainess yet sympathetic at the same
time. Of course Susan Flannery's had a good year too
OUTSTANDING YOUNGER ACTOR
They really need to rethink this category. I mean Paul Taylor can't be that
much younger than Josh Duhamel. Plus why is Paul, a man in his twenties,
competing with teenagers ? Anyway, my pick would have to be Jesse McCartney
(AMC). I believe he had the best storyline. Plus he had to hold his own with
DAN J KROLL (Soap Opera Central Founder)
NANCY HELBACH (SOC visitor of 3 years)
MARIAN CRANE (Y&R Online Recapper)
MINDY AMIRAULT (Soap Opera Central Contest Organizer)
LISA CHRISTINE SVENSON (Writer and non-soap watcher)
OUTSTANDING YOUNGER ACTRESS
Well, Parrisse is another person I think is too old to fit in this category,
but who am I to question the Academy? My pick anyway is Eden Riegel (AMC).
She had the toughest storyline and for someone that young to hold her own
with La Lucci, she has to be good.
