by at . Comments

As is the tradition when a year winds down, awards are being handed out.

We already published the fact that James Scott was named Best Hunk of 2007 by fans. Meanwhile, a star of Guiding Light has earned TV Guide's honor as Star of the Year.

Star of the Year: Guiding Light's Caitlin Van Zandt (Ashlee)
Sweet, touching, funny and not a size 2, she's the most exciting young thing to hit soaps since... well, maybe ever. Van Zandt's character, a love-struck teen warped by her glam monster mommy, is more than a revelation — she's proof soaps have been doing it wrong for years.

We don't want to see plastic, runway-gorgeous kids. We want to see real ones.
