8 May 7th, 2012 OLTL’s Austin Williams & Andrew Trischitta and GH’s Haley Pullos Win Big At Young Artist Awards!


We are thrilled that some of our favorite young performers were awarded for their hard work and terrific performances at Sunday afternoon’s presentation of the 33rd Young Artist Awards at the Sportsman’s Lodge in Studio City California. The Young Artist Awards recognize the accomplishments of young performers in feature film, television and live theater.

In the Best Performance by a Young Actor in a Daytime TV Series category, it was a tie! And who better to nab the prize? None other than the two guys front and center in Llanview’s bullying storyline, Austin Williams (Shane) and Andrew Trischitta (Jack) of One Life to Live!

On the female side, the amazing Haley Pullos (Molly) of General Hospital scored for Best Performance by a Young Actress in a Daytime TV Series! But, also won another category! Haley tied for Best Performance in a TV Series Guest Starring Young Actress Ages 11-13 for her role on House!

As her GH co-star, Bradford Anderson  told us on an episode of the On-Air On-Soaps Podcast, “Haley is a Helen Mirren in the making!”  Seems like she is well on her way to that status!


In other honors, Robbie Tucker (Fenmore) of The Young and the Restless and Tate Bierney (AJ) of All My Children tied for the Best Performance by a Young Actor 12 and Under in a Daytime TV Series category Danielle Parker (Emma) of All My Children took home the award for Best Performance by a Young Actress Ten and Under in a Daytime TV Series!

Congratulations to all the daytime performers! To view the complete list of the winners from all categories, click here!
