The 2nd Annual Indie Soap Awards presented by We Love Soaps were held at The Ailey Studios in New York City on Monday, February 21, hosted by the hilarious Martha Byrne, creator and star of GOTHAM. Video from the event is coming soon but in the meanwhile, you can check out our exclusive pictures from photographer Gustavo Monroy below.

Byrne opened the show with a hilarious monologue which covered a variety of topics from producing shows on low budgets, merchandising (she took not one, but two drinks from a GOTHAM mug), the impact of secret weapon Nadia Bjorlin, confusing sexuality, and so much more. Byrne introduced the presenters and cracked jokes throughout.

Here's a rundown of the show:
