Soap Opera Spirit Award 2011 winners list | As chosen by TV Guide Canada and announced on Michael Fairman’s On-Air On-Soaps Podcast

Nelson Branco has tweeted that the “rest of the Spirit Award winner will be posted tonite at midnight,” but in case you can’t wait for his post, along with his analysis, you can find a list of the major winners here.

I have to say, as much has Nelson goes for the sensationalism and cheap adolescent humor in his tweets and introductions (for example, the hosts joked about what red carpet-worthy designers they were wearing, and Nelson, calling in from Toronto made sure to let everyone know he was wearing “just a smile”; gag), I found his rationales to be quite articulate, and would hope that he reflects the attitude of the Emmy judges when they make their own decisions in the coming weeks.
