David A. Gregory
took top honors as the 13th Annual Soaphunks.net Awards were announced live Wednesday.
The OLTL stud, who also won the site's summertime Adonis contest, won Best Hunk and four other categories for the second consecutive year. He also converted his nominations for Best Torso, Best Pecs, Best Abs, and Best Butt into wins. Gregory's win in the top category puts him in select company: only OLTL's David Fumero
and DAYS' James Scott
have also won the Best Hunk award twice. Gregory's win for Best Torso was particularly noteworthy: with over 63% of the vote, it was the most dominant margin of victory in awards history.
Gregory thanked his fans via Facebook Wednesday after his wins. "Thanks everybody for all your votes," he said. "I'm truly humbled and honored. It's a wonderful way to say goodbye to a wonderful time of my life. You're the best."
It was a banner night for the now-cancelled OLTL, with 10 victories in all. The series won its third Hunkiest Soap trophy.
Fumero, whose win for Best Arms in last year's awards was actually a frequent point of parody throughout 2011, repeated his win in that category and made him the only nominee to send Gregory to a loss this year. Fumero also won the Best Voice prize--the first time in that award's six-year history that it wasn't won by James Scott.
OLTL also pulled wins for co-stars Nic Robuck
(Best Face, for the second year in a row) and newcomer Andrew Trischitta
Other soaps did manage to pull out some wins. B&B saw all-time wins leader Brandon Beemer
win Most Shamefully Clothed honors, as well as Best Eyes for a record 6th consecutive year. His co-star, Scott Clifton
, won Best Smile.
Though sidelined in many other races, DAYS did claim two victories in two major categories. Eric Martsolf
won Best Hunk Over 40 in his first year of eligibility, while Aussie Bren Foster
won Hunkiest Newcomer.
Former GH star Greg Vaughan
repeated his win for Most Missed Soap Hunk, just as Jonathan Jackson is departing that role. (Hint hint, GH!)
