It's interesting how the "favorite" and "hottest" winners turned out to be the same character in both genders. Jason took it for the guys (with newcomer Johnny Zacchara a distant second) and Elizabeth won the female category (with devilish Maxie getting her fair share of favorable votes). As for everyone's idea of what was the best comic relief in what was otherwise a pretty morbid year, Litigator of the Year, Diane Miller, came out way ahead of the crowd. Geeky Spinelli enjoyed several votes as well. What story line brought out the most tissues? You name it, with major characters like Alan, Emily and Georgie taking dirt naps in 2007, it was pretty much an ongoing sob fest. The demise of lovely Miss Quartermaine got the most votes, however. As for the best onscreen kiss, Jason and Liz were clear winners, although voters were torn between the first "I love you" kiss and the lip-lock in the barn during the Black & White ball. It seemed that Ms. McCall's actions were what got viewers the most angry, whether it was when she stood by (behind the bushes, no less!) and watched Jake being kidnapped or hired thugs to mug Jake and his mommy in the park. Jake's long, drawn-out paternity revelation also provided angst in our viewes' lives. Can you guess which character proved to be the most annoying in 2007? Here's a hint: She wants a baby but doesn't seem to want to spend any time with her husband. Need more? Okay, she doesn't want her ex-husband but she doesn't seem to want him to be with anyone else either. Yes, the fingernails-on-the-chalkboard rambling Caroline Benson Quartermaine Corinthos Jacks was the winner!
The worst story lines of 2007 brought its fair share of quotable insights as well. Liason Gal succinctly wrote her opinion. "The good should outweigh the bad and I don't think it did last year." GH1980Always voiced her concerns that violence has taken over for "love in the afternoon" and mused, "…the question is will it ever 'be' that way again or has TV changed so much that they can't write a great meaningful storyline without all the violence?”
All good points. We are two weeks into 2008 and no one has died yet, so that ought to count for something right? Love is in the air between Sonny and Kate, Max seems to be showing some interest in Diane and Patrick has been seen looking lovingly toward Robin. Dare we dream that Valentine's Day in Port Charles might not have anything to do with a massacre at all?
