The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Vernee Watson, General Hospital

In the year since won the coveted Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Stella Henry on “,” fans who had been clamoring for more from the actress in Port Charles got their wish and this year it’s landed Watson her second Daytime Emmy Award, this time for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series during “The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.”

“I won last year and I was thinking, ‘What does this really mean?’ Because my salary didn’t go up and I still have to go on those stupid auditions, so what does it mean? It means that the work that I have done has been recognized and is important,” said Watson in her speech. “I’ve been teaching young people for 35 years. I’m trying to pass along that work ethic and that legacy of learning. It’s not instant and when I won last year, I said, ‘I didn’t get this from being on Instagram or my social following because I’m not on that stuff. It’s about the work. So I would like for you all to go to, see what I’m doing and support me, and support me in passing on this legacy that I feel like I am. Hallelujah. Thank you, Lord.”

Watson beat out the likes of (Eve Donovan, “”), (Sarah Horton, “Days of our Lives”), (Belle Black, “Days of our Lives”), (Traci Abbott, “”) and (Hilary Curtis, “The Young and the Restless”).
