DC's Top 10 Female Entertainers of 2011
No. 2: Melody Thomas Scott, The Young and the Restless
Being off-screen for seven months didn't diminish Melody Thomas Scott's acting abilities on The Young and the Restless. The soap veteran came back to Genoa City with a bang and let viewers know why she always has and always will be one of Y&R fan’s favorites. Thomas Scott is at her best as a drunken lioness, trying to protect her cubs from harm no matter what the cost. Her gut-wrenching scenes of alter-ego Nikki Newman admitting in AA how much of a pathetic lush she is, and desperately trying to fight off her cravings for the evil demon called alcohol displayed why her bosses made a smart move to negotiate and bring the actress back from contract Siberia.
