The Best of 2001
TV Guide, December 22, 2001
by Michael Logan

Best Supporting Actress: A tie between All My Children's Kelly Ripa and OLTL's Ilene Kristen (Roxy). Ripa had her distractions this year - what with a new baby and that new gig with what's-his-name - but it didn't stop her from delivering the goods in Pine Valley, where she alternately shocked us silly (with a trampy split personality) and broke our hearts (when Hayley feared her newborn was mentally impaired). We'd hand her the Emmy now, if it weren't for the 11th-hour arrival of Kristen, who is a white-hot hoot as the bitter, gold-digging drunk of Llanview. These two actresses alone are reason to own a TV set.
