At Saturday’s A DAY of DAYS 45th anniversary event fan fest and press day, On-Air On-Soaps presented it’s Gold Medals in 12 categories as voted on by you the fans of DAYS and On-Air On-Soaps over the last ten days in our special DAYS 45 Voting Polls honoring the best of the last year from the Salem soap season. We took snapshot pictures with all the medalists with their official award, which you will be able to view in the photo gallery after the jump. And later this week, you will be able to see their reactions and hear their thoughts when we present our video interview presentation from A DAY of DAYS.
On to the winner’s circle! Crystal Chappell (Carly) was beyond victorious! The fantastic fan favorite whose CC fans came out in full force during the DAYS 45 Voting Polls were able to help their favorite gal, take home five Gold Medals. Chappell won for Best Overall Performance by an Actress, Favorite Salem Doctor, Favorite Flawed Heroine, Favorite Duo (w/Reckell) and even captured the Beloved Salem Favorite Female, a category she was not even nominated for.
However, CC’s fans and DAYS viewers selected her as a write-in candidate and she just barely edged out Alison Sweeney (Sami) in the category. Chappell was not originally included in the category because it was for actresses who had been on the show, off and on for decades with no less than a six year gap between their last appearance. Chappell had left DAYS in the early 90′s and had not reappeared on the show till 2009! Quite a fait accompli from the Daytime Emmy winner. Congrats to Crystal!
Peter Reckell ((Bo) took home two Gold Medals for Favorite Hero and Favorite Duo (w/Chappell). Bo and Carly edged out Danloe, Daniel and Chloe, for the duo vote from the fans in this hotly debated and contested category. James Scott (EJ) also walked away from the 45th event with Gold as well. Scott was the overwhelming choice for Best Overall Performance by an Actor and Favorite Baddie.
Shawn Christian (Daniel) was voted Favorite Hottie, Arianne Zuker (Nicole) was voted Favorite Vixen, John Aniston (Victor) was your Favorite Veteran Performer in a close vote where he just edged out his current on-screen lady love and co-star, Suzanne Rogers! And in perhaps the most surprised reaction of the day, newbie, Chandler Massey (Will) was your pick for Young Male Star.
