Eileen Davidson (Kristen DiMera, “Days of our Lives) — Outstanding Lead Actress

Congratulations! How does it feel?

It’s a lot heavier than I thought it was! But I’m really excited. This is really, really fun.

Is there anyone you forgot to thank in your speech?

You know, I wanted to mention more of the cast. They were kind of moving the show along at the end of the evening, but I think I got everyone I needed to. And I mentioned my husband, thank god!

Do you have any idea where you’ll keep the Emmy?

I’m not sure. I’m going to have to think about that, I guess.

And how are you going to celebrate tonight?

We’re going to party!

Which party are you going to?

I’m going to the “Y&R” party and the “DAYS” party!
