LISA CHRISTINE SVENSON


Lisa Christine Svenson is among the least informed of the experts consulted by soapcentral.com. Lisa, a non-viewer, considered several options for assisting in her decision-making this year. She opted to NOT paw through the entrails of her pets, simply due to the fact that it's just plain wrong. She also opted against the casting of lots, despite it's Biblical historicity. In point of fact, Lisa actually looked at information pertaining to the candidates. This is an unprecedented step, but has left her at or near the same state of confusion at which she started. Doctors assure us that with proper regulation of medications, Lisa will be functional again in the near future.

OUTSTANDING DRAMA SERIES

Bold and the Beautiful. I said to myself BEFORE I looked at the choices that I needed to be bold in my selection, and there it was on the list! Coincidence? Or divine guidance? I don't want to take the chance of missing out on that kind of inspiration.

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR

Thorsten Kaye (Ian Thornhart, Port Charles). I have to admit, as I read through the personal information on the candidates in this category, I was beginning to think I would need to pull out dice and do the whole casting of lots thing until I saw that Thorsten was a Miami Dolphins fan. I tried reading about his character, a most convoluted story, but it made my head spin and until I get it back in place again, I have to base my vote on football preference.

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis, General Hospital). I picked Nancy because of her commitment to being happy, what I call practicing the fine art of contentment. If more people could be happy with who they were right where they were, we'd all be better off.

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR

Ron Raines (Alan Spaulding, Guiding Light). When I read that he was a PK, I had to vote for him (I am one, also). Also, his performances with gospel singing groups are intriguing, as few things in life can be as fun as music.

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS

Linda Dano (Rae Cummings, One Life to Live). This woman has a real hobby, collecting antiques, not generically, but antiques of a particular time period, and it's a hobby she shares with her spouse. Also, her mother lives in her home, keeping family ties strong. She lives two habits more people need...constructive hobbies and family values. That's enough to get my vote.

OUTSTANDING YOUNGER ACTOR

David Lago (Raul Guittierez, The Young and the Restless). I voted for David simply because he had the guts to admit he had been in a Kellogg's Corn Pops ad. Also, reading and playing the drums are admirable hobbies. Some of my favorite people are drummers.

OUTSTANDING YOUNGER ACTRESS

Lindsey McKeon (Mara Lewis, Guiding Light). It is a rare thing to read about one who has been on a water polo team. Fascinating sport, probably means she's an interesting person (although it isn't always the case, I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt). Also, I liked her selections of high school reading material.

OUTSTANDING WRITING IN A DRAMA SERIES

As the World Turns. I can't vote for the same show twice. Yet. If I am asked enough times, it will become inevitable. I think what is intriguing about this program is that they have to chronicle actual days. The world turns once every twenty-four hours, and at least once in each of those days, one of the writers on this show has to have a thought or the show would be off the air. Actually, what works for As the World Turns is that if you visualize turning, you can imagine a crank. Each day these writers has to crank something out that will satisfy viewers. Round and round and round they go, where they stop, nobody knows...
