As December comes to a close, we figured it was time to chime in on the numerous end-of-the-year awards handed out. Our thanks to Daytime Confidential for coming up with the crux of this list.

With that in mind, here are our 2007's Top 10 Newcomers in the world of daytime television:

1. Billy Miller (Richie Novak, All My Children)
2. Megan Ward (Kate Howard, General Hospital)
3. John Brotherton (Jared Banks, One Life to Live)
4. Sebastian Roche (Jerry Jacks, General Hospital)
5. Carolyn Hennesy (Diane Miller, General Hospital)
6. Murray Bartlett (Cyrus Foley, Guiding Light)
7. Dylan Bruce (Chris Hughes, As the World Turns)
8. Daniel Goddard (Cane, The Young and the Restless)
9. Brandon Barash (Johnny Zacchara, General Hospital)
10. Lauretta Vaughn (Kit, As the World Turns)

Why did we rank Billy Miller number-one? For his honesty. The man portrays Richie in a slick, twisted way that makes for a true, fun-loving villain.
