The Top Ten Awards That Should Have Been Given At The SOD Ceremony
All the nominees were chosen by the writers of this top ten list who considered performances from Feb. 1993 through Feb. 1994. There weren't any ballots and nobody voted on anything and the top ten vote getters were determined and verified by the accounting firm of Teresa and Tracy.
