If ever there was a shoo-in to be honored for her spectacular year and performance on All My Children last year as Angie Hubbard, actress Debbi Morgan (Angie) lost her bid in the Lead Actress Category in a Daytime Drama Series last night at the 42nd Annual NAACP Image Awards. Morgan’s loss was all the more shocking when none other than Tatyana Ali for her (sort of ) recurring role as Roxanne on The Young and the Restless name was called.

Morgan’s castmate at All My Children, Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard) picked up the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Daytime Drama Series prize, even though the official NAACP Image Award website incorrectly lists The Bold and the Beautiful’s Rodney Saulsberry as the victor!

    Shocker? Talk about insanity manifested in a prize. Ms. Ali is a fine actress but she did acting on Y&R that was above that of a dayplayer.

    In contrast, Ms. Morgan delivered outstanding work as a lead actress.
