In 1981 Collins was offered a role in the second season of the then struggling new prime time soap opera Dynasty (1981–1989) playing Alexis, the vengeful ex-wife of tycoon Blake Carrington (John Forsythe). Her performance is generally credited as one factor in the fledgling show's subsequent rise in the Nielsen ratings to a hit rivalling Dallas.
In 1985 Dynasty was the #1 show in the US. For her portrayal of Alexis, Collins was nominated six times for a Golden Globe Award (every year from 1982 to 1987), winning once in 1983. Delighting the audience in attendance at the ceremony, Collins thanked Sophia Loren for turning down the part of Alexis.
