The Young and the Restless Billy Miller (Billy Abbott) got a well-deserved Daytime Emmy Nomination for his portrayal of Billy Abbott this morning when the nominees for the 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced. Miller had this to say on how he found out he made it to the final five in The Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Category:
“I was asleep, soundly. After a long night of, well “celebrating life,” I took the liberty of attempting to sleep in only to wake up to my agent’s call at 5:00 am. I answered half asleep and assuring them that a.) I was not in jail b.) I didn’t do anything more stupid than ordinary, and c.) whatever you heard, it wasn’t me. Then of course they delivered the good news. Very cool, must admit I am pleasantly surprised and very honored.
By 9 a.m. I found it odd my mom didn’t call, so I reached out to her. She told me she didn’t think I got a nom because my name wasn’t announced in the a.m. broadcast. So, I then delivered the news, at which time she said “THAT’S GREAT! Goodbye, I have to brag to people now.” Then she hung up on me.”
