Daytime Emmys 2010: Agnes Nixon's Lifetime Achievement Award
Because of her pivotal role in so many daytime programs, she is generally considered the queen of modern soap operas. Furthermore, she is credited with many of the socially-conscious storylines of daytime TV -- AIDS, alcoholism, gay/lesbian issues, etc.
Another queen of daytime, Susan Lucci, was on-hand to give the award to Agnes. Both Lucci and Nixon were choked up and seemed genuinely appreciative to be where they were standing. Congratulations to Agnes Nixon for her Lifetime Achievement Award on the year of "All My Children's" 40th anniversary.
