Finola's Acceptance Speech:
"Thanks, Ian. Oh, I don't know, Best Comeback, it's very Sunset Boulevard, really, isn't it? I want to say thank you very much to the fans for their support and to Soap Opera Digest for their tremendous kindness in this whole bringing me back; it's overwhelming. I want to thank this new show I'm working with. The cast has been so wonderful to me since the day I started. Kelly and Mark, you make me laugh every single day. Angela Shapiro, thank you for calling me. 'Do you want to come to New York?' 'Sure!' Jean Burke, Agnes Nixon, and all the writers, thank you for making such a wonderful character for me to play. I know she's losing her mind, but so what? It's a soap opera. Thank you very much." sod2000e.jpg (57788 bytes)
