    I wouldn’t’ even say she is recurring! In fact, I think she is gone, since she broke up with Devon! The voters should view of the reels of the nominees and not base it on name factor. I am happy for Kristoff!

    EventsDiva replied

    I agree! And when she was on there she barely made a difference!

    Patrick replied

    Victoria Rowell…. that Drucilla


    I would be just livid… there she goes again

    nominated 12 times, and WINS 11 years!

    her tenure at Genoa City… intermittently… from 1990 to 2007

    I still believe she is needed in Y&R to wreak havoc and STAR turns


  2. Iakovos says:

    Ms. Ali may be a fine actress in the NACCP’s regard but I think it wrong to salute her as daytime’s best when she and her character are nothing but a footnote. It seems t diminish Ms. Ali, the awards, and the NAACP. That said, as Ms. Ali is but a starry day player, this is an obvious sign that actors of color are underrepresented on daytime.


  3. Truth Detective says:

    Karla Mosley should have won. Tatyana was on twice last year. What a joke.


    jaybird369 replied

    Oh, yes…I totally agree!!!!! And, remember this…Karla Mosley is a regular cast member (aka B&B). Tatyana Ali is NOT!!!!! Big difference. Yep.


  4. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    I told y’all Tatyana would’ve won. It’s clearly a biased thing. Homegirl ain’t even on the show anymore, so why is she getting it? It’s not like her material has ever been groundbreaking….


  5. Mark says:

    Who is she?


    Lew S. replied

    She played Will Smith’s cousin on The Fresh Prince of Belair and Devon’s not often see ex-girlfriend on Y&R.


  6. boes says:

    I guess nobody actually watches Y&R who votes at the NAACP either.
    If they had, they might realize that she is never on – I had to look her up – and KsJ has been replaced by a cardboard cutout.


  7. David J. says:

    Does Roxanne even have a last name?


    The_HugoBoss replied

    Hahahaha. Well if you have a free hour, it should be easy enough to look through her footage and find out.


  8. toscanti says:

    I agree with the Tatyana Ali comments, she is a super actress but honestly she has not had enough material to warrant a nomination much less a win. There were many other nominees more deserving of the award. Oh well! They can do as they wish as it is their awards event!


  9. Rob says:

    Thats just pathetic.


  10. PatF says:

    They gave her one scene that was worth anything. Her goodbye scene with Devon.

    Hardly a reason to just hand her another award.

    Too bad for the other actresses.

    Congrats to KSJ, though. He continues to deliver.


  11. Derrick says:

    What the hell…………Tatyana Ali won an NAACP award??! NAACP must be a fan of her or something!

    Congrats KSJ!


  12. mike says:

    The bartender at the Athletic Club gets more air time than she does.


    The_HugoBoss replied

    LMAO! Its sad, but true.


  13. Robert Lee says:

    WTF?? The NAACP Image Awards are a joke because of Tatyanna Ali! Her presence on the show doesn’t warrant a nomination yet alone a four-peat win!! This awards show is a joke and I’m African-American!
