    Eric Martsolf gave a great acceptance speech when he won his Daytime Emmy. His speech may have been allowed to go long because the people producing the show were enjoying it too. Eric was very humble in his acceptance and most appreciative of the people he works for and with. Other actors should take lessons from Eric on giving an acceptance speech! Hey, Eric, need a part-time job? Acceptance speech coach would be a good one!
