Welcome to the first, annual edition of Soaps.com's Sudzies Awards! The Sudzies allow all soap opera fans to cast their votes to honor the best of soaps.
With the Emmys underway, Soaps.com's fans and moderators requested that we have our own Awards, just for fun, just for the site! One of our moderators, "Plot_Twister" has put in a great effort to speak on behalf of other readers in order for us to bring our readers these awards. We're happy to be able to bring the fans something fun to cast their vote on.
How does it work?
Soaps.com creates a list of categories for the best of daytime in all nine soap operas in a variety of categories. Plot_Twister has posted the categories in all nine soap operas. All that is needed is our readers to come along and vote!
The polls will be open for a month. After the month is up, and everyone has had a chance to cast their vote, we will close all polls and tabulate the winners of each show. Once we have everything tabulated for each show, we will post a master ballot that will be accessed through a 'Sudzies' banner on the main page of Soaps.com. Visitors will then cast their votes one last time, and on June 15th 2007, we'll close the polls, tally the votes and then we will post the winners!
How to vote:
Vote on each and every soap opera you watch, by visiting each message board, copying and pasting the list (See category list below.) into a reply box and using this as your ballot.
Here is a list of links for you to use to vote on for each show:
Why do this when we already have the Emmys?
It's a good way for soap fans to have their say! This is a chance for viewers to cast their vote on the best of the best in daytime, even for the shows, actors or categories that don't make it to the Daytime Emmys. We have 25 categories. We'll list the 'Best Dramatic Series' on the main ballot at the end of the preliminary votes.
This promises to be a good time and an annual event for Soaps.com! Vote now and enjoy!
