When we caught up with “The Young and the Restless’” Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin) on the day he found out he’s been nominated as an Outstanding Younger Actor for this year’s Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, he was slightly in a daze. “I’ve been in daydream all day,” he admitted. “I feel like I was hit by an electrical current.”
But that’s a feeling that happened after his initial excitement, which began when his phone started blowing up at 6:00 a.m.! “I couldn’t go back to sleep. I was running around my apartment,” he says with a laugh. “It’s an honor, first off, just to have this job, where I get to do what I love to do for a living, and then to get recognized for my work is an amazing feeling.”
