(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — It’s hard to believe that Scott Clifton had never won a Daytime Emmy Award for his portrayal of humorous and interesting characters on “General Hospital” and “One Life to Live,” which is not to say he hadn’t tried. For three consecutive years (2004-2006), Clifton was nominated for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Dillion Quartermaine on “GH” and he was nominated for the fourth time in the same category in 2010 for his role as Schuyler Joplin on “OLTL,” but in 2011 the actor finally took home Emmy gold for his work as Liam Cooper on “The Bold and the Beautiful” during CBS’ telecast of the “38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” on Sunday, June 19. Interestingly enough, this was the actors final chance to be nominated in this category as he turned 26-years-old on October 31, 2010.

Note: Emmy rules stipulate that in order to be eligible for the Younger Actor/Actress categories, an actor must be 25-years-old and younger, which thankfully gave Clifton enough material to use for his Emmy reel submission.

For his Soap Opera Network: Backstage at the Daytime Emmy Awards interview, Clifton had fun with our mini-quiz, showed his well mannered side when he called me “sir” numerous times, although I am only just a few months older than him, and shared his appreciation for those that have stood by him through out his career and what it means to now be eligible in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category.
