General Hospital's Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina Davis) and Haley Pullos (Molly Lansing) have reason to celebrate. The 32nd Annual Young Artists Awards were handed out on Sunday, March 13, 2011, and both actresses took home trophies.
Ainsworth, who joined GH in Jun 2009, snagged the top prize in the Young Actress (Best Performance in a Daytime TV Series) category. Last year, Ainsworth was featured in the gripping storyline of a teenager trapped in an abusive relationship that ended with the death of her boyfriend. The storyline garnered the notice of many fans, and the actress earned a nomination in the 2011 Dankies Awards for Outstanding Newcomer and Younger Performer.
Halley Pullos, meanwhile, won for Young Actress, 12 and under. Pullos arrived on the scene in May 2009 as uber-intelligent and hopeless romantic, Molly Lansing. Pullos might also be familiar to many viewers outside of daytime, due to guest spots on several popular shows including The Ghost Whisperer and The Cleaner.
Both Ainsworth and Pullos are pre-nominated for this year's Daytime Emmys.
