Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama
Acceptance Speech 1995:
goodness. I would like first to salute the other nominees. What
extraordinary performances, all of them. In order, to be brief, I would
like to thank first of all a very classy network ABC all the way down
starting with David Westin, Pat Filli-Kushell, Maxine Levinson, our
Producer Susan Horgan, Michael Malone and the writers and directors.
I just got a notice to take my time. Is that nice or what? (Laughter)
Our directors are extraordinary. We are all involved in Daytime here
and we know what it takes to put a show together and it's a real combined
effort and I can't begin to thank everyone enough.
My family - my wonderful family - thank you Brian, Michael and Amanda.
And I will be brief...I could go back and name everybody again (laughter).
But first I want to name three actors in particular who whom I have shared
most of my screen time, certainly in the last few years. Roy Thinnes,
Clint Ritchie and my very great pal, the wonderful and fabulous Robin
Strasser. Thank you so much."
