Days of our Lives



On Thursday, May 1, nominations for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced, and "Days of our Lives" star Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) received the happy news that he'd received his first ever nomination, although in the most unusual of ways. "I had forgotten that they were announcing it. I had an early call time and I'm in the shower at 6:00 AM," the actor recalls of the time news began rolling in. "I get out and my phone's just going nuts. There I am soaking wet standing there in the bathroom. I look at my Twitter, and sure enough, I found out through some fan," Martsolf states with a chuckle while nonchalantly apologizing for the visual. For reference, "The tweet read, 'Congratulations on your Emmy nomination, Eric Martsolf' and that's how I found out."

He adds, "Just turning on my phone and seeing how many emails and texts I get is generally an indication of a 'yay' or a 'nay.'"
