There’d be no Pine Valley and no Llanview if it hadn’t been for “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” creator, Agnes Nixon. The 85-year-old penned both sudsers and consequently is responsible for putting thousands of people to work over the past 40-plus years. She’s received countless awards for her additions to the genre, most recently receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences during the 37th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in 2010. And Vincent Irizarry (David Hayward, “AMC”) thinks the legendary lady is overdue for yet another recognition!
