There were a few former daytime soap notables, as well as one of the best performances in a primetime soap that were among the honored performances tonight at the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Matt Bomer, (Ex-Ben, Guiding Light) took home the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series or Movie made for TV for his work in HBO’s The Normal Heart!  Upon accepting his award Bomer thanked gave husband Simon Halls and their three children – Kit, Walker, and Henry – saying, “I want to thank you for putting up with me when I was 130 lbs. and really grumpy when you ate pizza in front of me.”   And in one of the ceremonies most touching moments, Bomer related “To all the people we lost from this disease (AIDS), I just want to say: We love you, we remember you.”

Julianne Moore (Ex-Frannie/Sabrina, As the World Turns) won a Golden Globe  for Best Actress in a Motion-Picture Drama for “Still Alice.”  In one of the most acclaimed performance by an actress this awards season, Moore gives a heart-rending portrayal of a vibrant and ambitious Columbia University professor diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s.

Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt took home the Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series, Or Motion Picture Made for TV.  On season four, Anna Bates was brutally raped, and in her acceptance speech Froggatt related that she felt a strong sense of responsibility to rape victims when she had to tackle the storyline in season four that saw her character suffer a sexual assault.   After the episode aired, the letters the actress received from women who have endured rape touched her deeply, Joanne said. “This is something very removed from what I usually do for a living,” she said. “They are probably the most special letters I’ve ever received in my life.”

In addition, Judith Light  (Ex-Karen, OLTL and Ex-Judith DALLAS) was part of the ensemble cast that took the stage when Transparent was named Best Television Series Comedy or Musical!  Judith’s co-star Jeffrey Tambor was named Best Performance by an Actor In A TV Series Comedy or Musical.   For a complete list of winners for tonight’s ceremonies click here!

Joanne Froggat did an absolutely superb job as a rape victim in Downton Abbey. No one could have done it better. I am thrilled she won. The writing was exceptional, but Mrs. Froggat’s body language, intonation, and facial expressions showed what life was like back then when women thought even more than now that they were somehow at fault. Anna was afraid her husband might find out who did it, the fear in her eyes and shame, etc. were palpable.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,
