You can knock Passions for being too campy or the cast for being too pretty (and for having a character actually named Pretty), but you can't criticise it for a lack of diversity. Minority characters often linger on the back burner on soaps, but Passions has always featured them front and centre.
The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists has honoured Passions with its 2007 American Scene Award, which recognises excellence in programming that portrays diversity in a positive and realistic light. Passions is the only daytime drama to win this award back-to-back. Cathy Jeneen Doe (Simone) accepted the award on behalf of NBC/Universal Studios Inc. and executive producer Lisa de Cazotte.
