The only thing I question is...why her for entertainer of the decade? I can't remember but was this a fan vote? Marlena pretty much only had the SSK story and John's death as far as major stories go so I'm not really sure if she works as someone who made a huge impact this decade when compared to others. I mean, in the 90's she would win hands down but the 200o? Not sure about that as she spent more time on the backburner then she did on the frontburner.
I was wondering the same thing. Deidre's talents were terribly squandered from 1998 - 2009 with only occasional moments of creative greatness for the character of Marlena. It was sad to watch her become so unimportant in the grand scheme of things.
It was.

There was so much potential too. This decade started with the Hattie story and Marlena having a radio show. She was also headed for a breakdown. That story all went to hell when Hattie became a big nothing of a story (something clearly changed) and the Marlena/John stuff became all about Brady. The SSK was her next big story but once that got changed to the island crap, we saw her very little, if at all, for the better part of a year. She then had Alex North, which had potential, but that story was very inconsistent and that seemed to get changed and then it ended quickly. J&M were then put on hiatus, had a brief surge in Fall 2006, went to the backburner again until John died, had another brief surge and that was it.

That is why I can't understand naming her entertainer of the decade. I mean, she had her moments but this wasn't like the 90's. She didn't so much of anything.
