The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills was home to the 41st Daytime Emmy Awards, which saw some of the hottest and most talented stars of daytime TV receive recognition for their contributions to the television landscape.
Among the many celebs honored, quite a few were first time winners and former All My Children star Cameron Mathison, reporting for ET, talked to a few of the ceremony's celebrated soap stars who were taking home their very first Emmy statue.
Days Of Out Lives' Eric Martsolf, who plays Brady Black on the NBC soap opera, was the first up to win an award. He took home the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Emmy, and the 42-year-old performer couldn't have been more excited. However, he says he didn't really think it would happen for him.
"Other people win Emmys," said Martsolf. "Peter Bergman wins Emmys, you know? Maurice Benard, those guys win Emmys. Now I got one, and I'm kind of in the club. It's kind of cool."
The Young And The Restless' Amelia Heinle was also in shock, both on stage while accepting her award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, and backstage talking to Cameron.
